Classics: The Black Pant

Must-haves: The essential items in a woman's closet that provide a framework on which to build upon. One of these must-haves is a pair of classic black pants. 

I am thrilled to have recently found the most comfortable pair of black pants at a fabulous boutique in the citySwensk. Swensk stock one of my favourite Swedish labels, Filippa K. 

Filippa K design contemporary garments for both men & women. Their style aesthetic focuses on classics which have easy, simple, clean lines, suited to modern people who lead busy lives.

 
  
Here, I chose to wear my Filippa K Dree twill pants with a print blouse for a chic, relaxed weekend look. What do you say? 






















I have already had lots of fun styling these classic black pants with garments from my closet. I'm looking forward to showing you more in future posts. Watch this space!
   
This weekend we get to enjoy an extra long weekend. For those of you who live abroad, we call it the Australia Day long weekend! You've gotta love that!! Today is actually Australia Day and to celebrate we enjoyed a traditional Aussie BBQ in the comfort of our own home. It was wonderful!





I'm a proud Aussie, through & through!! 

How has your weekend been so far? Have you made any exciting plans? 

As always, I love hearing from you, so please keep in touch.

Yours in style,

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango! The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt!  For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette. Check out

Ballistic for Bally

I have always loved Bally , especially their shoes. They're made with the softest, luxurious leather I have ever worn. Bally were my first ever pair of high end designer shoes and they fit like a glove. So this post is going to be dedicated to one of the most prestigious design houses and their amazingly comfortable, chic shoes.  Here's some of my favourites from Bally's new S/S '12 collection: Which is your favourite? I love the classic black Otty-Crest pump and the teal and navy Palda wedge sandals. Have a great week! Mine will be an interesting one. I finish teaching for the term this coming Wednesday and go on a staff retreat to Creswick for the rest of the week. I'm looking forward to breathing in the crisp, clean country air!

French nautical

I love stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time.  There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet. Audrey Hepburn Brigette Bardot I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.     This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar . They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this!  This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands.
