French Cuff Layering

We all have our fashion weaknesses - items which you can’t live without and seem to buy a lot of. For me this is the tailored shirt, and apart from denim is probably the highest volume item I own. Because lets be honest, having a crisp white shirt that lasts is actually pretty hard to find. That’s until I owned my first Anna Quan button up. I try to wear this shirt the most out of my collection, Mainly because it has a point if difference to the others I own (The personalised monogramming is easy on the eye), and secondly the cost is a little more than I would usually spend. The cuffs are not so wearable for me - especially when sat at a desk for the majority of the day. Some of her more recent designs actually have removable cuffs, which are perfect for that lunchtime soup option! But hey, if the shirt washes like a dream and still looks crisp a year on then it’s worth it.

Usually I would wear with a good pair of mom jeans, but wanted to experiment with my new House of Harlow dress. At the get go I thought this wasn’t going to work with a tight style (as the shirt is not that fitted). Thankfully after styling a few ways, I felt comfortable wearing it the way photographed. Accessories have been kept to a minimum to accentuate the stripes and the cuffs. I know when the weather gets cooler it will be layer perfect with a chunky knit.

Subtle Sexiness

Every woman has their own version of sexy. It doesn’t mean you have to reveal too much. I prefer to be sexy subtly. There are many ways to achieve this and one of my favourite styling tips come winter is wearing an oversized jumper baring a bit of shoulder. Gone are the days where a cleavage or mini skirt are the ways to feel confident. I’ve always had a soft spot for backless, especially when it involves knitwear. Today’s dress is from LPA’s new collection which is available on FWRD and Revolve. It’s one of my go to brands for something a little dressy, but still stylish and classy. I adore the tie detailing around the neckline and back. I have kept my hair sleek, with a pair of classic black sunnies and a statement pair of gold earrings. Anyone else love to dress up their minimal looks with a clunky pair of nanna earrings? Definitely something I am loving experimenting with this season, and always on the hunt for my next pair!

Guess what ladies? FWRD are currently having 15% off until March 20th! If you’ve been eyeing up that investment handbag or blazer that will see you from office to dinner this sale is for you! Plus,  free express shipping to Australia which is always welcomed! Even my Chloe Faye is on sale…. just saying!

New Year, New Neutrals

It’s hard to believe that Christmas was only six weeks ago, exploring Rottnest Island in Perth and enjoying the WA weather. Where has the start of 2017 gone? Now we are into February, I have realised that January was a bit of a wash out and most definitely a rocky one. It’s been a tough few weeks, and decided to take some time off the start of the year to focus my energy into personal relationships. Sometimes with Style Structure and my full-time job I get overwhelmed and miss important things going on in my personal life. It’s important to have balance, and if things get too much it’s okay to prioritise and throw the towel in where need be. New found time meant I could focus on the important things which made me realise that my life shouldn't revolve around numbers, and how fast I am growing over on Instagram. So many times I put undue pressure to achieve more and more, but in doing this you forgo enjoying the process of creating inspiring work. Sometimes quality time with the ones you love has to win, and it's only having time away from my website I realise the importance of that. Burning the candles at both ends is not a good strategy.

Personal matters aside, January was one of the hottest months I have ever experienced in Sydney which made shooting city looks difficult. One of my fellow creative friends is currently residing in Paris. I must admit, her winter outfits are making me a little jealous. It’s strange, because this year I am embracing summer. But deep down winter is my fashion season.  This weekend, it cooled down a touch for me to wear a lightweight knit. That’s the beauty of thunderstorms!

If you follow me over on Instagram, you will know how much I am channeling warm earthy tones this season. It’s also a nice change to my usual monochrome looks, and looks great with a golden glow. Last week I headed to Los Angeles for work and was hoping to photograph this look. Time just slipped away, so took to the streets of Sydney for a sundown shoot on a quiet Sunday night.

A-Line skirts are always the most flattering for my shape, with the high waist doing wonders for me. Cropped knits work well, and I was drawn to the ribbing and multi beige tones on this top. I will probably wear this with a long white shirt underneath for the colder months. That’s the beauty of transeasonal pieces - They can be styled differently for the opposite season and means you can keep your wardrobe to a minimum if styles can be carried through season to season.

Hope you all had a great start to the year, and looking forward to seeing you more over here in the coming weeks. Have a great week!

Post Christmas Sales

A quick hello from Perth! I am finally getting over the food coma and enjoying a slower place a bit too much, could seriously get used to sleep ins and days at the beach. Yesterday Chris and I ventured over to Rottnest Island, which is 45 minutes from Perth. Did you check out my Insta stories? It was a day filled with multiple beaches, snorkelling and a scraped leg from coral. Time over this side always trickles away too fast, and tomorrow we are flying over to Port Douglas to have some down time and to finally tick a new part of Australia from my to see list.

In the meantime, I’m hitting up the Boxing Day sales from the comfort of my balcony! Revolve are having up 50% off for their Holiday Hangover Sale, and you can pick up some of today’s pieces in the sale. What bargains will you be looking for? I like to make sure I’m buying the staples so denim is high up on my shopping list, possibly some oversized tees for casual days.

Happy Shopping!
