I speak on behalf of all Australian women (assumedly) when I say that the Zara #DearAustralia movement was an absolute game changer (*insert praise emoji). Since it’s release, I’ve been shopping up a storm, but today I’m highlighting my pick of the mix, showcasing my favourite seasonal staple, the Striped Shirt Dress.

This garment has seen me through a variety of fashionable moments, helping me to sashay into the workplace and taking me from desk to dinner with the girls. What I love this piece is its relaxed form, cinched with a bow at the waist. Of course the puff sleeves, collared neckline and oversized buttons certainly add to it’s charm.

Team this frock with a pair of block heels for those dressier moments, or slip on a slide and head straight to brunch. In this case, it’s time for a quick coffee before heading back to the office.

Ladies, have you ventured onto the Zara app? What has caught your eye? Let me know if the comments!

Ladies, I absolutely LOVE the concept of boho, but it’s not usually part of my classic aesthetic. However, find me a frock in a terracotta hue, highlighting florals and frills and I’m singing a different tune! Can we just take a moment to appreciate this Autumn appropriate Jag number (currently under $100) which is going to transcend from work to play?

So how does one achieve that perfect combination of boho chic? Well, it’s all in the details! For me I’m loving the button up collar detail, garnished by a golden Zodiac pendant from Molten Store. I’m teaming this pendant with a pair of tassel earrings from Adorne, because I like to keep things a little extra.

Whilst it wouldn’t be boho without the glimpse of a braid, I’m adding my own little twist with a low, nape of the neck knot. Trust me when I say this hairstyle took a quick 5 minutes and was so easy to execute.

I’de love your thoughts cuties, should I incorporate more boho chic looks into my repertoire? Are there any particular labels you are vibing? Let me know below!

Who knew when Dorothy Gale blew in from humble Kansas, she’d make a monumental fashion moment with her iconic gingham pinafore. Channelling a modern day Dorothy, I’m styling a fabulous little gingham set from Lulu & Rose, available at Glue Store. If there’s a design element that I love more than the gingham print, it’s the asymmetrical frill detail motif seen in the blouse and skirt.

There’s no ruby red slippers to complete this look, but there is an incredible Camilla clutch on display, teamed with some silver accessories courtesy of Molten Store and Wallace Bishop. If you are loving this look as much as Glinda would, then shop my favourites below!

I Want What She’s Styling: Saoirse Ronan

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

When it comes to the Hollywood style files, I want what Saoirse Ronan is styling. From sheer, shift dresses to structured blazers, this young starlet can do no wrong, on or off the red carpet. I’ve rounded up some key wardrobe staples to recreate her best looks.

Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan at the Lady Bird Premiere Dublin, Santa Barbara Film Festival, Lady Bird Press Conference.

At The Lady Bird Premiere Dublin

Both demure and positively darling, Saoirse styles a sheer shift dress with an allover strawberry print, totally fitting for her quirky role in Lady Bird. Keeping accessories to a minimal she styles the frock with a pair of pointed suede boots, proving timeless accessories speak volumes on the red carpet.

At The Santa Barbara Film Festival

In a bold move wearing culottes on the red carpet, Saoirse combines the statement pant of the Victorian era with a draping satin blouse. Again, a pointed toe heel makes an appearance, which can be substituted with a pair of mules for a more modern take.

At The Lady Bird Press Conference

Channeling Coco Chanel in a tweed blazer, decorated with embellished brooches, Saoirse is a vision in this vintage getup. I adore how Saoirse pairs her blazer with a LBM (little black mini). Kudos on those pins girl.
