While the title definitely gives it away, I’m really excited to be sharing that Everlane is offering international shipping again, given the trouble I will typically go to just to get my hands on one of their silk tanks and incredibly soft cashmere jumpers.
For the next two weeks, they’ll be shipping to more than 50 countries (you can find out more via Everlane’s website), which means that it’s your golden opportunity to pick up those pieces you’ve had your eye on.
The twill zipper tote has fast become an everyday staple for me (it fits a tonne and it looks nice worn with neutrals, and the E1 black leather boots are stashed under my desk at as they make a great everyday boot.
While I’ve certainly had my fill of Everlane these past few years, I’m planning on making a cheeky wee order ahead of our trip. I’ll be picking up a backpack for Luke – he’s decided to go for the Modern Snap – which will be perfect for hiking along the trails of Cinque Terre – and I’m going to grab another linen tank (they really are that good), in heather grey.
If you’re thinking about making an order, I’d love to know what you’re planning to pick up in the comments below, and if you’re still hemming and hawing over the sizing, I’d recommend taking a quick peek at the last couple of reviews I’ve shared (here and here). Happy shopping! x
As I find myself heading towards the end of my capsule wardrobe journey as I currently know it – and more on this in a later post – I’ve been thinking a lot about my initial motivations, and hesitations, to capsules and minimal wardrobes in general. One thing that always seemed completely foreign to me? Outfit repeating.
I’d rarely wear the same outfit twice, coming up with new, and mostly unusual, ways to wear something, that didn’t feel tired or stale. Things have definitely changed.
These days, I’m a serial outfit repeater, and I don’t think I’d have it any other way. My current favourite look? This lightweight black skivvy from Kate Sylvester paired with an a-line skirt from Lover; it’s smart enough to work for the office yet easy enough for the weekends too, which means this has been a go-to on those ‘I have nothing to wear days’, of which there’s admittedly been a few lately. And I get the feeling that this is going to be one of those outfits that I reach for all winter long, adding a pair of black tights and some high heeled boots, plus an oversized coat for good measure.
It’s been a good fifteen years since I first started sharing parts of my life online. I was an angsty teenager (who of us wasn’t?!) who poured hours of her free time into building websites and what was essentially an online journal – free for anyone to find.
I’m not quite as liberal with what I share online these days – a little bit of mystery never hurt anyone – though I did think it might be fun to answer some of the questions that I receive from you all., in video form
Aside from the basics, like my age (28) and my height (172cm), I’ll be chatting about things like how Luke and I met, what I do for a living, my health and fitness routine, as well as touching on the nitty gritty of capsule wardrobes and what my shopping habits used to look like.
So if you’re interested in getting to know me a little better, then have a little watch of the videos below, but just warning you, all four videos go on for about 40 minutes total!
And if you have any questions that I didn’t cover in my Q&A, please feel free to ask me now and I’ll get back to you in the comments below. x
Right now, there are three things that I just can’t leave the house without; a sturdy pair of flats (my Everlane loafers are currently a firm favourite), my Proenza Schouler PS11, and my trusty Acne Studios Canada scarf. And you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m wrapping up my essentials series by talking about the classic trench coat. It’s the epitome of Parisian chic – and who doesn’t want to dress like a Parisian? – and one of those pieces which crops up time and time again when it comes to talking about wardrobe essentials.
My current favourite is from Everlane; it’s a little slouchier than I’d typically go for (tip: size down when buying Everlane’s trench – you’ll thank me for it), but I find that it’s just so effortless and easy to throw on over any outfit, worn open and loose or tied up with a bow at the waist.
Sydney doesn’t get too cold in the wintertime so this works incredibly well as a transitional piece that will see me right through those cooler months, when worn with a big fuzzy sweater underneath.
If you’d like to see some of the ways that I like to style my trench (and let’s start off by saying, it’s a jacket, so it’s a complete no brainer), then you can check out my latest video here.
With my essentials series done and dusted, I’m looking to start placing more of a focus on the working wardrobe, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
