Back To Blazers

When the humidity accelerated in Sydney a few weeks back, one thing was on my mind…..How am I going to survive another Australian summer staying true to my style? I must admit, Autumn is the month my wardrobe loves me best. Each piece gets a lot more love with the thanks to layering. This summer, I am trying to invest in pieces that I think will see me through a few seasons. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not easy shopping this way, but it definitely makes my wardrobe smaller and enables me to wear pieces a good few times. Summer is also a great time to shop in the UK sales, online from Aus. The likes of Zara, Cos, Topshop and Asos have some of the best sales and it’s a chance to pick up a winter bargain or two that will be on trend for the colder months Southern Hemisphere. Today’s blazer I picked up in the Topshop sales, and although the temperature was nearing 35 degrees the day of purchase, it doesn’t mean you have to set you mind to thinking that you won’t get the wear from it. A classic jacket is always a winner.

Over the holidays you may have seen over on my Instagram that I headed to Perth with my loved one for my first Christmas away from home. I was nervous to be out of my usual routine watching Home Alone wrapped in a blanket after a turkey coma with the family, watching the Queens speech at 3pm. Thankfully my partners parents are both British, which meant a Turkey roast with all the trimmings was awaiting me. Thanks to Snapchat, I managed to catch up with one blogger that I met at Fashion Week. Jiawa Liu from Beige Renegade blog. It turns out she lives close to Chris’ parents, so a spontaneous meet up happened on Boxing Day. It’s awesome meeting fellow creatives, and we had a blast of a day drinking epic milkshakes and getting some killer shots. 

Todays location was at Cottesloe Beach Hotel and I couldn’t help but have a nerdy jaw dropping expression thanks to the interiors being clean and minimal. Hopefully that doesn’t show in these snaps! The LWD (little white dress) is from one of my favourite Sydney boutiques, PS the Label. It’s quite easy to style a white dress up a little too much when worn with heels, but wanted todays look to be more of a relaxed one, so opted for a pair of old kicks. It’s quite fun turning a dress into your own, styling it differently from the online lookbook. The outfit was finished off with a marble bag, silk neck tie and trusty round Raybans. The perfect look to ease back into work.

  1. Hi, love this blog post. I always find summer here so hard to style, as it gets so hot you don't want to wear anything at ALL, however I like the idea of just throwing a blazer over your shoulders to keep your look a little more put together. Great styling on this outfit!!!

    1. Life is all about good and bad experience
      Life is all about good and bad experience. It was all good and lovely

      when i met jully, she was a good business woman until things become

      rough for her and her business empire started liquidating. I was a very

      courageous and hardworking man so i decided to sell my inheritance to

      assist . We both struggle together and built the business world again.

      This time around the business was growing from strength to strength. I

      was surprise one Sunday evening when she came home with her secretary

      and told me that we cannot continue with this pretense called love. I

      was shocked and heart broken, i was in a friend, house for three weeks

      frustrated until i met fernando my old friend at the supermarket, he

      directed to me to Dr saka. I contacted saka and he told me that Jully

      was been manipulated by some spiritual power and he told me to provide

      some items which he is going to use to destroy the evil spirit. I never

      believe in voodoo but i had to give him a trial. To my greatest

      surprise, Jully called and started apologizing 2 days after i sent Dr.

      Saka the email. I am very happy and will continue to be happy for the

      good work the Saka has done in my life. Problems are been solved when

      good people like Saka are on this planet, please contact him through if you need any support in any problems in

      life. I love Dr Saka ... :)

  2. Oh my gosh, Helen. When I saw this outfit on your Instagram I'm pretty sure I actually gasped in awe. Trendiest woman in Perth, I bet. Well, you and Jiawa! So jealous you got to catch-up. Hopefully I'll be over your way again soon!
