Weekend Habitat: Raes on Wategos Byron Bay

Step inside the perfectly curated Raes on Wategos, Byron Bay. There are a number of properties in the world that are on my bucket list to experience and photograph. Raes is one of them. This boutique hotel has seven individually designed rooms, each with their own individuality encapsulating the Byron Bay charm. A short walk to the beach, the sunset is one of the most breathtaking I've experienced. Every detail is carefully thought about. From the background music, amenities, and staff that make sure your comfort and experience is of upmost priority. The Aesop travel size toiletries are an added bonus.

Utility

There’s a bit of a theme going on over on my Instagram other than tonal (Surprise surprise!). It’s a mix between a safari trip and what your granddad might wear angling. Oversized jackets, multiple pockets, and aesthetically pleasing on the eye. So if you’re new to utility or already on board, here are some ways to style this SS19 trend. 

The cargo jacket 

It’s versatile for spring. Pair with straight leg jeans, or for warmer days bike/city shorts








Boiler Suit 
As seen on the runways of Stella McCartney and Zimmerman, it’s the new LBD for a night out. Pair with strappy heels and a clutch bag. For daytime, this style looks great with slides or sneakers. Personally, I think the more oversized the better. Make sure the waist is cinched in. 





Tailored Utility 
You know I love a head to toe tailored look. Try pairing a multi pocket jacket with matching tones on the bottom. Style with a pleat front trouser and belting the jacket. 





The Pocket Belt 
The Fendi Pocket Belt Bag really paved the way for the utility bag this season. Dependant on if you have £1k to drop and a designer personal shopper on speed dial! There a many alternatives, and this style looks awesome around the waist as well as cross body

Weekend Habitat: The Artist Residence London

For this months Weekend Habitat, I had the pleasure of staying and photographing The Artist Residence in London. I’m a big fan of old meets new when it comes to interiors and the Grand Suite did not disappoint. Parquet flooring, marble vanity, and a cast iron bath are just some of the features that give that wow factor. A pied-à-terre with close proximity to the hustle and bustle. Located in Pimlico, it’s a short walk to Victoria train and bus station. 


The Artist Residence has several properties around the UK and this is the first I have experienced to date. It definitely won’t be the last and I am excited for the Bristol opening this June which is only 40 minutes from my home. The concept is unique. Each property focuses on art work in the rooms and communal areas, and the theme of wood and cast iron run throughout. It’s also nice that a touch of the outside neighbourhood personalises each property so after a day of exploring, you can venture back to your room and soak up the local culture that touch more. Each room is individually designed and all have something different to offer.

The Tonal Trend

Tonal dressing. The one trend that was my main focus at both London and Paris Fashion Weeks. I’m a big fan of neutral, muted colours and when styled together I instantly feel myself. I have high hopes for tonal styling transitioning into spring summer ’19. Head to toe black or rich chocolate looks were perfect towards the end of winter, but moving into spring I am also experimenting with head to toe camel/tan and by far my favourite white/cream. Layering with a similar palette was a lot of fun for Fashion Weeks, but for spring I will opt for maybe a white tee with tailored linen and a jumper thrown over my shoulders. 



It doesn’t have to be exactly the same tones throughout, and there isn’t no right or wrong. Personally I think styling similar hues like white and cream doesn’t make the outfit appear so flat and adds depth. 





So if you’re like me and less colour is a frequent occurrence in your wardrobe give this trend a go. I guarantee you won’t have to spend a fortune, and you’ll master this dressing with key pieces you already own. If you’re feeling like freshening up your closet, I’ve linked a selection of my favourite spring favourites below.
