Continuing my relaxed theme this week, and indulging my love of soft grey tones, wearing my @miafratino wrap which is fast becoming a work horse. Paired with my lovely new @saffcollective earrings a Mother’s Day gift from Master 15. Have a great day, it’s nearly the weekend. ▪️ #wiw #ootd #advancedstyle

Continuing my try on session in new season @lulumanna_label . This time it’s the Aero Top and Zimmer Pants. The pants can be styled three ways!! Worn as is, tighten the hem draw string to create an asymmetric hem or, as I’ve done, with the tie wrapped around the ankle. This range is so wearable and is proudly made in 🇦🇺 ▪️
@lulumanna would like to offer you a little discount👏🏻 Use Code Stylish10 on either of these pieces x

Finished a major project at work yesterday and feeling utterly exhausted! Stylish but casual pieces for the rest of the week as I spend time at my desk catching up. ▪️
This merino batwing jumper was very kindly gifted from @sassind_melbourne and is just beautiful. I’ve added a gorgeous pendant from @zoda_aus (also kindly gifted) I sized up in the jumper because I wanted two options for styling. The first is how I’m wearing it today, just loose and long. See my stories for how I can wear it more in line with how it was designed. I loved the jumper when I saw it online but was hesitant, concerned it might be too bulky given I’m large busted. But the knit is very smooth and not bulky at all and sizing up gave me a lovely drape and versatility🙌🏻

Popped a link in my bio and see my stories for a closer look at the pendant. I’m obsessed with grey at the moment 💕

Monday! How did you get here so fast😜. Well I’m glad you did because today @lulumanna_label launches their new ‘Elements’ range🎉 SO I thought I’d have a bit of a try on and show you the new Odyssey Dress. Black and white stripes in a @lulumanna_label signature design. Lulu Manna dresses are classic with an edge making them quite timeless and unique. I find I always reach for one of my LM dresses when I have an occasion, presentation or speaking engagement and they are always perfect. This striped version is a bit of a show stopper and makes quite a statement.... I like it! ▪️
The Odyssey Dress is available on pre order and if you use Code Preorder15 you will receive a 15% discount. ▪️

On Tuesday I shared a beautiful @kimberley_tonkin_the_label (available via @acquireatdesign ) Moss Green Coat/Dress and today I want to show you the same design but in ink with a white stripe. Worn over a long asymmetric shirt with the lower buttons undone. I think my preference for this design is to actually wear it open, coat style, but it works as a dress quite easily. Have a look at my stories for more of both the stripe and the moss. As I shared Tuesday, this is a gorgeous new label proudly made in 🇦🇺 ▪️

You know what they say! Keep your friends close and your handbag closer😜. I don’t put my bags on the floor, they either have their own chair, sit on my lap or just beside me! I treat my wardrobe pets well💕

Last weekend I had the privilege of trying out some beautiful new designs from @kimberley_tonkin_the_label Designer Karen Kwok’s design philosophy centres around slow fashion, creating designs that transcend passing trends and will truly stand the test of time. All Karen’s designs are made in Australia. This beautiful Dress / Coat is 100% linen, has a stepped hem and is a perfect design for Autumn layering. ▪️
Karen also owns and runs a very exciting design and retail space, @acquireatdesign in Newtown, NSW where you can experience an eclectic mix of beautifully designed clothing, millinery, accessories, artwork and homewares. @acquireatdesign also features @lulumanna_label and @andiamoaustralia two Australian labels that I have a very strong affinity with! ▪️

Celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday wearing pieces that easily transition from lounging to a relaxed Sunday lunch. ▪️
Wearing a luxe cashmere wrap from Australian label @miafratino. Straying from my black, in another stunning neutral, this colour is called Blizzard! @miafratino advocate slow fashion, have a fully transparent supply chain and manufacture in an independently owned factory which facilitates their responsible approach to ethical production. ▪️
@miafratino use 100% Mongolian Cashmere and create investment pieces that can be worn year after year. I love the company ethos ... clean, simple and transparent ....sounds like a great recipe for life! ▪️
Wrap kindly gifted.

It’s officially coat and jacket weather! One of my favourite labels for jackets is @mottofashions They are cut beautifully and the fit is always perfect. This gorgeous Ponte Paisley Trench is a fantastic statement piece. Keep the under layers simple - I’m wearing Mottos ‘magic pants’ again with a simple black top - and the jacket does all the work here. Hope you’re enjoying the cool weather... I am!

Trench kindly gifted.

Talking footwear today! I do like shoes 😜 and I was thrilled to be asked by @naotfootwearaus to try out a pair from their current range. I have some girlfriends in the US who are big fans of the brand so I knew the brand but had never tried them. They produce quite a diverse range of styles but I was drawn to the slightly more funky looks. These are the Lantana in the black velvet combo. Seriously comfy, with a padded backstrap and removable innersole, they are one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I love the contrast wedge heel and the cleated sole, elements that read modern to me. For me these are a dress/skirt or cropped pant shoe and are going to be perfect for Autumn and Spring. I will show them in a full outfit next week 😘

Shoes kindly gifted, opinion all mine😄
