GOOD EVENING everyone! As someone who regularly has more outfit changes than meals per day, I am constantly trying to create versatile outfits in order to reduce the amount of unfortunate backseat-change-room situations that occur. Between trying to wing my eyeliner, not spill my extra-strong, extra skinny latte and attempting to create the perfect ‘un-tucked, but actually entirely purposefully tucked’ look; things can get kind of messy in the backseat… and so the convenience of wearing one PERFECT outfit that’ll take you from day to night with as minimal adaptions as possible, is KEY to any backseat-change-room success.

Slouchy boyfriend jeans are always a go-to key item for me in these scenarios, although usually considered to be the casual option; a splash of lace and unique silver jewellery dresses them right up whilst still maintaining the casual-chic, I-have-put-zero-effort-but-actually-all-the-effort-into-this-look, look (an entirely necessary look for any girl and/or fabulous guy on the move). As it is a bit nippy (totally kidding – it is bloody freezing) in Melbourne at the mo, a chunky knit is an absolute necessity. I recommend this one from Assali, it has a point of difference (cue; plunging V-line back), but still remains versatile, slouchy and timeless, just like any good knit should. Last, but certainly not least, you need a big old black bag with structure and strength to chuck anything, [but more importantly] EVERYTHING inside. If you can’t fit a DLSR camera, 28 bobby pins, 95 half used lipsticks and the kitchen sink into your bag, then you are doing it wrong. I also like to carry around a dressy little evening clutch and a vintage silk neck-scarf in my go-to bag in case things get fancy. To take the outfit from day to night, just ditch the knit for a blazer, the boot for a heel and the bag for a clutch and with minimal backseat nonsense you’ll be wining and dining in no time.

HAPPY ALMOST FRIDAY! I HOPE YOU HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND!
