Blazers!


As most of you probably know by reading my blog, I'm more of a sweater girl, but there are days where I feel like wearing a blazer. My absolute favourite has to be my Max & Co boxy taupe blazer. Max & Co are part of the MaxMara Group, who also own Christensen Copenhagen. They stock some of the most amazing pieces and their tailoring is superb!

I love pairing my jeans with a blazer. It's the epitomy of chic. I enjoy wearing this because of the multitude of styling options. It even looks fabulous worn over an LBD! That's why I prefer to invest in pieces, because I know that the cost per wear far outweighs the initial expense.   









This blazer is a boxy, cropped fit, which suits a petite frame. I enjoy wearing this one because it's so comfortable and looks great whether it's buttoned up or left undone. The ruched sleeves are cropped and have buttons. In addition to this, there are two buttons on the back with ruching.  I really love the pleating at the back and front as well!



The only downside to this blazer is that it is made from a blend of linen and cotton, which means that it does crease a little. So when I am travelling in the car, I have to remove it to avoid looking like a crinkled up paperbag! Having said that, the fact that it is made from a percentage of linen means that it can be worn on even the hottest day.

Do you enjoy wearing blazers? How do you style yours?

I hope you've all had a great start to the week! I'm starting to get really excited because the Loreal Melbourne Fashion Festival is just around the corner! Fingers crossed I get to go to some of the runway events!

Yours in style,

    1. Thanks so much Alexandra! I find the menswear inspired blazers too rigid. This one has a real feminity to it with all of its style features.

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!

2020-The Year of Surprises

A couple of years back, I was so disappointed to discover that the beautiful Ralph Lauren Boutique in Collins Street, Melbourne, was closing its doors. Unfortunately for me,  it was actually closing permanently. I loved shopping at Ralph Lauren because they were the only store in Melbourne to carry the high-end Ralph Lauren Collection , otherwise known as Purple Label. So began the search for a store in Australia. Unfortunately, there was no good news, after several phone calls and emails to and fro from customer service. My absolute favourite label, the Ralph Lauren Collection, would sadly become a distant, fading memory.  Fast track forward to 2020-the year of surprises; a year proven to be vastly different and challenging, for many reasons which need no mention,  I found out some very exciting news which was like absolute music to my ears! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available in Australia! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available at Chatswood Chase, New South Wales. Perhaps it w
