Even though I’ll wear the occasional statement necklace, I’m a minimal jewels kind of gal at heart. Dainty chains are enough to make my heart melt – figuratively speaking, of course – and I’ll take a delicate gold ring over a sturdy statement piece any day.
So today I’m really excited to share with you the minimal (and in my opinion – essential) jewellery edit that I’ve curated, featuring five of my favourite jewellery pieces from Mejuri.
Summed up in three words, I don’t think you can describe these pieces as anything other than dainty, delicate and minimal – perfect when worn paired together, and they make a great starting point if you love layering your jewellery as much as I do.
You can shop the edit here and if you’re interested in seeing these pieces in action, then make sure to check out the video I filmed which goes into a little more detail on each item.
Prints have been making a comeback in my wardrobe, in a major way, and lately, all I’ve been seeing is stars.
I was lucky enough to get to pack this starry beauty in my suitcase for my (not-so)-recent trip to Italy and the United States and I have to say, this dress had me at hello. Asymmetrical hem? Check. Gold embroidered stars? Check. Perfect for day or night? Check.
I pulled this out on one of our final nights in Italy, as we roamed the cobblestone-lined streets of Florence in search of homemade pasta and a refreshing aperol spritz. It’s one of those pieces that makes a statement by itself, thought I love the idea of layering it over a skivvy with tights to transition into Summer, or with a simple pair of cons for everyday.
Because I pretty much have a one-track mind, I’ve been practically obsessing over its star-sprinkled sister, the Frances mini skirt. I’m sure I’m not on my own when I saw it looks like the perfect summer mini skirt – with a sweet little twist.
While I’ve finally come to the conclusion that the capsule wardrobe is no longer right for me, I received so many requests to continue sharing seasonal wardrobe lookbooks, that I thought I’d give you a peek into my Spring wardrobe, and some of my current favourite outfit combinations. I’ve been talking about adding some colour into my wardrobe for a hot minute, and I have to say, it was about time that I finally put my money where my mouth is. I had a lot of fun filming (and editing!) this video, so if you’d like to see my Spring favourites in action, then make sure to check out the video below.
As much as I love throwing on something pink these days – which is completely the new neutral, by the way – sometimes a girl’s just gotta go back to basics, and for me, it’s always a minimal palette of black and white, worn in the most unfussy way possible. Two years on and I haven’t stopped gravitating towards these men’s merino knit sweaters I picked up from Country Road, a constant reminder that sometimes the grass is greener on the other side. There’s something about the thrill of the hunt, when you’re rifling through the men’s section for a cosy oversized knit sweater, that makes the find so much more rewarding, which is why that’s exactly where you’ll find me next winter.
This week has definitely been one of those weeks which has just been flying by; Wednesday felt like Tuesday, and well, today feels like Wednesday… I think you get my drift. So today, I wanted to keep things really light and chat through a couple of my current favourites – be it a handbag, a notebook, or a lipstick that I just can’t get enough of.
I really love a bold lip, and Spring is my favourite time of year to start busting out a punchy red. One of my current go-to’s is Wild Ginger by Tom Ford; the formula is beautiful, it’s creamy and rich, drying down to a matte-like finish, has excellent wear time, and I just love the orange undertone. It’s perfect for when you want to make a statement.
I seldom leave the house without a notebook tucked away in my bag, and lately I’ve been reaching for this gorgeous marble notebook from MIKOL. Leatherbound, with real slices of marble on the front and back, it’s been more than a pretty addition to my workspace. I’m a little fussy about my notebooks and I love that this one has lined, grid and unlined pages so you can basically take your pick!
The last couple weeks have been so sunny that I’ve had to start packing a pair of sunnies in my handbag to wearing during my morning commute. I’m all about the cat-eye frame and this leopard printed pair from ASOS have been fitting the bill perfectly.
Weekdays tend to be pretty hectic for me, so to wind down in the evening I love burning a scented candle or two. I’m still slowly making my way through Rosaviola by Diptyque, which I love for its soft powder rose scent.
Sydney’s warmed up a lot over the last couple weeks, but I still can’t imagine stepping foot out the door without my Acne Studios ‘Canada’ scarf. This is one of those wardrobe staples that just never seems to get old, and I’m currently toying with the idea of picking it up in camel, burgundy or navy for next winter.
Admittedly, I’m saving this one for the wedding, but I’ve become completely and utterly obsessed with my feline purse from Charlotte Olympia. Naturally, blush was the obvious choice, and I really can’t wait to wear this to absolute death after my wedding day – it’s the perfect size for those days when you just want to carry the basics.
I’m a little late to the watch game, but since I received this minimal watch from Christian Paul there’s barely been a day that it hasn’t been wrapped around my wrist. For years I was the girl who relied on her phone for the time and it’s such a nice feeling to be able to quickly glance down at a watch instead.
Truth be told, it’s been a good year or so since I last pulled out the Instax, but I recently came across my stash of film and got inspired to have a little play around with it. While I definitely haven’t mastered the art of the instant camera, there’s something so magical about watching the photo you just took develop in your hands.
While I have a few favourite ‘polish’ shades for Spring, Essie’s Tea & Crumpets has been on my fingers – and toes! – basically non-stop. It’s a pretty pearlescent pinky nude which goes with basically everything.
