Back to Basics



DOC MARTINS / SIMON MILLER BUCKET BAG / ARTICLES OF SOCIETY JEANS / MADEWELL WHITE T-SHIRT

Some days all you need is a pair of black mom jeans, an oversized white tee, a good book, strong coffee and your favourite docs.

Anyways, sorry for the somewhat radio silence on the blog front as of late; between shooting/meetings/emails/events and attempting to just enjoy life – it can be hard to actually find time to blog – which just feels all kinds of ironic as not only is it my full time job, it is absolutely one of my favourite things to do. Nonetheless, I promise I will do better. But in the meantime, I would love to ask you – is there something you would like to see more of on my Blog/Instagram? Any topics you would be interested in hearing me cover or content you would like to see me create? Even if it is just more regular posts on my blog or more links to products I wear, let me know below! Alternatively, if you don’t read blogs anymore and prefer to just see me post on Instagram – I’d love to know that too! 

Sunday Best

SPORTSGIRL BERET / OUMA TOP / AGOLDE JEANS / ROBOTY RECZNE BAG / NAKEDVICE SHOES

Happy Sunday Everyone! Here are a few shots from the weekend – which was largely spent watching movies in the afternoon and visiting new restaurants/cafes in the evenings. I hope everyone had a beautiful and relaxing weekend. This week is going to be one of the busiest yet so I will be sure to post as much as I can about everything I am up to!

Burberry Coat

THE FIFTH TEE / JEFFREY CAMPBELL BOOTS / VINTAGE BURBERRY TRENCH / OUMA SKIRT (VINTAGE) / ATTENTION FRAMES SUNGLASSES

I found this vintage Burberry Coat recently in a second hand shop down the road from my place. It was kind of one of those moments where the minute I spotted it, I just knew I had to own it. It is super oversized, which I love and although it is in almost perfect condition, it still has this really vintage, pre-loved vibe about it. I pretty much intend to wear it everywhere, with everything, always & all days. I popped a few links of similar, brand new ones below but if you are wanting to purchase a vintage one, there is such an amazing selection on eBay (here) and priced so reasonably!

Lindenderry Estate

Yesterday we arrived at the beautiful Lindenderry by Lancemore in Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula. After settling in, we spent the afternoon exploring the Estate and shooting in all the different corners of this beautiful location. We dined at the The Dining Room in the evening and were treated to a beautiful three course meal with matched wines – the perfect end to the day.

Melbourne Central Denim Edit

In collaboration with MELBOURNE CENTRAL, I created a denim edit of all the colours, styles and patterns I currently love this season.

In continuation with my recent desire to create a more colourful wardrobe, I played around with different denim washes, and particularly got right around denim in blush pink/peachy tones (perfect for spring!). I love these tones paired back with either a white tee and blue denim, or complimentary colours with clashing patterns such as stripes or spots.

[Disposable Week]

Having always loved to take photos, be in photos or even just be around when photos are happening, it was no surprise that I found myself taking photos (albeit primarily of myself) for a living, what was a surprise though is that between all the content production, collaborations, photoshoots and I guess really what should actually be referred to as ‘work’ (although it never really feels that way), I sometimes forget to take photos – just for the sake of taking photos! You know, the kind of shots you take purely for memories or just because. So with a sudden urge to get back into taking photos just because – I thought I’d bring around a disposable camera with me for a week to encourage me to take more photos just for fun! Plus, a disposable camera felt so very fitting as when I was a kid I could barely get enough of them. I would quite literally bring a disposable camera to school/camp/any-somewhat-social-activity-happening-in-the-life-of-a-10-year-old and the spend the following week begging my mum to go get it developed ASAP. Ironically, a lot of the photos I took were of myself all dressed up in different outfits I had put together using clothes from my mums wardrobe or clothes that I had made – but that is a story for another day. So anyways, here you have it – my week from the eyes of a disposable camera. The quality is kind of questionable, compared to the usual DSLR and I chose not to edit or process any of the photos, which again I thought was a nice change from my more curated content.

Weekend Looks

I recently styled a couple of weekend outfits, featuring items available from GLUE STORE. I have been a huge fan of GLUE STORE for as long as I can remember, they are sort of just my go-to for all things denim and cool. With a wide variety of brands in varying price ranges, they really do have something for every occasion and everyone. I played around with an all-black, polka-dot look for my first outfit and added some double strap black heels for a point of difference (and to mix-up always wearing boots/sneakers). With my second outfit, I couldn’t go past these mid-blue denim LEVIS, slightly dressed up with a lace khaki camisole.

Black Ankle Boots, Always & Forever

I have always had a real thing for black ankle boots, particularly the pointed toe, slightly heeled, 100% genuine leather kind. I tend to wear them literally all year round. Whether this is because I am just not really a sandal/thong-kind-of-gal, or rather that I actually enjoy having uncomfortably hot feet in summer – either way, you’d have a hard time finding a day of the week I’m not in boots. I think I just love what black boots do to an outfit. It doesn’t really matter what you’re wearing;  a black boot will always give the look a slightly more edgy, masculine feel, which has always been a big element of my personal style. Especially on days where I feel like wearing a more girly dress, or ruffled details – black boots will dress down the look to make it a bit cooler and more me. 

Grana Move

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! As a long-term lover of GRANA, this month I wanted to share with you how I am styling their amazing new GRANA MOVE collection. Although not one to usually be found at the gym, I am definitely partial to a long power walk, especially if there is an iced-latte and my best friend involved. As my exercise isn’t really what one would called ‘strenuous’, I like to make sure I’m feeling alarmingly fashionable even when working out. This is easily achieved with GRANA’s new MOVE collection. With a huge variety of cuts and colours on offer, they really do have something for everyone. I particularly love this red wine legging paired with the lighter lilac top. I also played around with a couple of different cardigan colours below to show you how versatile the colours really are!

Grana Silk

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! As a long-term lover of GRANA this month I wanted to share with you my favourite two items from their amazing 100% silk range. I couldn’t go past this ridiculously chic, monochromatic silk bomber jacket. Apart from being a super on trend piece, it is also really versatile and can be worn with so many different looks. I also totally fell in love with this silky red slip dress. I’ve been wearing it over tees, over jeans and under chunky jumpers, with sneakers, heels and ankle boots!
