It’s a stylish question I’ve been asked before; can a jumpsuit be formal and specifically, can one be worn to a wedding? Partial to a all in one number, I believe jumpsuits can certainly be styled for a more formal affair, however, I’ve got a few little stylish tips and tricks in my Louis Vuitton.

1. Ensure your jumpsuit contains the basis for a high end outfit, ie, is it beautifully tailored and made to measure or is crafted from a high end fabric? What I love about this Stella piece I’m wearing is the gorgeous structure highlighting bishop sleeves,  a cinched tied waist and billowing pants.

2. Consider a softer, feminine palette suitable for a ceremony, as well as the reception. Already a jumpsuit makes a strong optical statement, so subtlety is a safe choice. My recommendation? Anything floral or favouring blush or pastel tones.

3. Create elongated legs with an appropriate heel. Given a few inches of extra fabric, I have selected a pair of heels that offer a platform, alongside a generous block heel, creating the optical illusion of longer pins.

4. For accessories: think less is more! Keep the focus on the find, and accessories to the essentials. For this look, it means a striking set of earrings, a fabulous timepiece and a few dainty rings.

Little Party Dress Dream State Dalmation Print Dress, The Daily Edited Mini Cross Body Bag, Liberte Maya Earrings and Necklace, Tony Bianco Heels (similar style here).

I’m feeling like the modern day Cruella De Vil dressed in this fabulous dalmation print, exclusive to Little Party Dress. There’s something so chic about a monochromatic colour palette, especially when teamed with such a feminine silhouette complete with pleated detail and floaty bell sleeves.

This sleek look features a personalised cross body bag, one of my very favourite accessories from The Daily Edited. Some might say a full monogrammed name is rather excessive, but as fortune favours the bold, this piece remains the ultimate statement – that and the luxe Maya jewellery set worn, by Liberte.

Dalmation, zebra, polka dot or otherwise- what’s your favourite monochrome print? Let me know in a love note below! x

Australia Day weekend is on the horizon and I’m striding into the long weekend wearing an off duty jumpsuit from Little Party Dress. This piece is delightfully cute to wear, featuring a vivid animal print, breezy cropped palazzo pant and a collared neckline for extra prep.

For those spending the weekend out in the sunshine, I’ve opted for a pair of Birkenstocks and yes they are a little more fancy with their metallic texture. Complete with a woven tote bag and some sharp new frames, I am ready for blissful summer adventures.

Little Party Dress Dream State Lilac Polka Dot Dress, Review Boater Hat, Adorne 3D Jewelled Flowers Structured Clutch, Origami Doll Pins, Les Nereides Black Mini Ballerina Necklace, Molten Store Star Cluster Stud Earrings, Wittner Heels (similar style here).

With an affinity for the charming, umbrella yielding nanny, known as Mary Poppins, you can only imagine just how tickled I was to experience the highly anticipated sequel Mary Poppins Returns at the request of my friends at Disney.

Providing the perfect second chapter to the story, I adored the ever so stylish Emily Blunt, who infused a little more sass back into the beloved character of Mary Poppins, whilst emulating a stylishly chic take on the enchanting muse; known for her signature style of structured coats, geometric prints, pops of polka dots and of course, a love of millinery.

Inspired by her whimsically chic style, I’ve put together a Mary Poppins Returns inspired ensemble, highlighting a retro polka dot dress in a playful lilac hue from Little Party Dress. With floaty bell sleeves, one could simply drift into the heavens by her very own umbrella.

In true Mary Poppins fashion, I’m teaming my frock with a sophisticated straw boater by Review, highlighting a lace netting overlay. Swapping an endless carpet bag for a cheery Adorne 3D flower clutch, helps to take this spell bounding look from day – night.

The final flourish is seen through dainty accessories, with eccentric charm, a tape measure and miniature umbrella brooch, a ballerina necklace and starry earrings.

For those seeking a magical escape to the theatre, then this Disney film is the one for you! Get your tickets to Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns here!
