Monochrome

I love black & white together. Madame Coco Chanel made this colour combination so chic and fabulous! Nobody does it quite like her. 


On days when I want to keep it simple, I opt for a black/white ensemble. I'm not a big fan of accessories, but if you are, this colour combo is the perfect backdrop for some serious bling!!






Instead of jewellery, I added some sparkly contrast with the sequined belt. This belt actually came with this ever-so-timeless black Max & Co skirt.


 

If you have been following my blog for some time, you'll know that I really LOVE wearing white singlets and try to update these each season (see this post). This newly acquired number was purchased from Max & Co and it was on sale, which was an added bonus. The straps are a little thin for my liking,  but now they've grown on me, so to speak.
 


I have been having a very busy week of teaching and I cannot believe how fast this year is going! Not long to go now until the LMFF! I'm getting excited!

How's your week been and what are you looking forward to? 

Oh, I almost forgot to share some exciting news with you!! I am now proud to announce that my new website address is fortheloveofaudrey.com

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 my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.



Although …

French nautical

Ilove 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.


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. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

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!
