raspberry sorbet

Over the past couple of days, I have enjoyed catching up with friends for Christmas. It's been wonderful, relaxing, sitting around and sharing our stories from the year gone by.

One of the outfits I wore out to a casual pub dinner, was my most treasured Yeojin Bae skirt in a beautiful raspberry colour, paired with a baby pink sweater.




The weather in Melbourne has been fairly warm. However, the evenings become quite cool and indoors is usually air-conditioned. I found the perfect sweater for the occasion; my Ralph Lauren, silk & cashmere blended short sleeved number.





 




Together, this ensemble reminds me of sweet raspberry sorbet; the sweet vibrant colour of the shantung silk skirt, combined with the soft, pastel shades of the baby pink sweater. 

I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Take care over the holiday season!

Yours in style,

What I'm Wearing: Yeojin Bae silk skirt in rose, Ralph Lauren  silk/cashmere sweater, Repetto Orson Rich AD Wedge Booties in Marbre, Louis Vuitton Alma handbag in Monogram canvas.

  4. I love that simple, elegant pink skirt! I am on the hunt for a skirt with a similar cut to pair with a black peter pan collared shirt I have at home and I might have to give up and make one! I love that it has a bit of a shine to it. Is it silk duponi or satin?

  5. Thanks Elizabeth! The skirt is made from shantung silk. I saw your blog post featuring the black peter pan collared shirt & I love it to bits! It's so cute & I think pink would look great with it.

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.
