Over the past few months, I’ve been introducing denim into more than just my weekend wardrobe. Monday-Friday, I probably wear my mom jeans to work 2-3 times a week. Luckily, working in a fashion head office means it’s pretty relaxed when it comes down to style. It’s nice to have a job where I don’t have to buy ‘workwear’ pieces. An uncluttered closet is something I am actually quite proud of, and would advice any of you to do the same if you work in a chilled environment. It’s the worst feeling waking up and not knowing what to wear in the mornings and when it’s still dark at 6am, the last thing you want to do is rummage through piles of clothes, throwing together a mismatched look with questionable textures.
Although todays look is far away from work, it’s most definitely transferrable into my weekday grind. Whilst holidaying in Italy last month, it wasn’t as hot as we anticipated. The mornings were cool. Culottes were a great choice for the hours of walking we had planned for the day, and adding a sleeveless layer was a good option to take me through to a warmer afternoon. This season, silk slips and camisoles have been an addition to my staples and is the perfect piece to take you all into spring. For winter in Sydney, a tee underneath is the layer you’re going to need. Then come spring, it’s going to be perfect to wear alone just like todays look.
Flat shoes are a must for Rome. Totally digging the snake look to these and the low square heel is perfect to avoid getting stuck between the cobbled streets. Because hey, there were constant missions to find the best Nutella croissants so would prefer little obstacles as possible!
