What To Pack For The Christmas Break

What To Pack For The Christmas Break

When it comes to getting ready for the summer holidays a tight style edit is crucial. Versatile and light weight separates in all black, as well as sophisticated accessories will ensure your set for an effortless Christmas break. I’ll be heading home to Margaret River in Australia’s South West, so I’ll be packing wardrobe staples perfect for beachside adventures, lounging around and nights out at the local pub. As well as the additional essentials below…

Lack Of Color Grove Fedora. If there’s one thing you can’t forget to pack it’s a brimmed hat. I wouldn’t go anywhere this summer without it.

Matteau Swim Tri Top and Petite Brief Bikini. There’s nothing more chic than a black, classic-cut bikini top and brief with a seam-free finish. You can also wear them as much as you want and they will never be referred to as “that” bikini that you’ve worn every day.

Matteau Natural Beach Bag. If there’s one thing you can’t forget to pack it’s your beach bag. The one above from Matteau is perfect as it is light weight, expandable and features woven cotton handles.The best feature is the netting. As your sure to leave any beach sand at the beach, rather than finding it in your bag later!

The Beach People Avalon Towel. Luxe towels are like the perfect pair of jeans. The best ones are undeniably sophisticated, perfectly worn-in and soften beautifully with age. Which is just a few of the reasons why I love the range of beach towels from The Beach People. This season it is all about their new designs and The Avalon is my current favourite.

Classic Sandals. Make sure you pack a simple pair of nude or black sandals. Slides are my favourite this season and there are an incredible variety if you know where to look. Just remeber, keep it simple. I’m going for minimal leather sandals with raw-cut edges.

Christie Nicolaides Adara Earrings. There is nothing quite as beautiful as OOT jewellery and these handcrafted hammered gold brass earrings are a perfect addition to any jewellery collection.

Byredo Unnamed Fragrance. Unnamed is a unisex blend of gin accord, pink pepper, orris stem, lush violet, tree moss and fir balsam which allows you to name the fragrance yourself, then label the bottle as you wish.

Lack Of Color Grove Fedora. An amazing hat is a timeless wardrobe stable and the perfect addition to a chic wardrobe. I wore the Grove Fedora to my Christmas and it has been a staple piece ever since.

Mason Pearson Hair Brush. I recently wrote a post about how every girl should own a Mason Pearson Hair Brush. Which is why it makes the perfect gift for someone special or yourself.

For those who are still stuck for a gift idea a virtual gift card is always the perfect last minute present. My favourite online shopping destinations; The Undone StoreThe Fashion Bunker or The Iconic.

Mondays are always the same; Snooze buttons, coffee and scrambling to get to the office in time. And, for the most part, reminiscing about the glorious weekend that was and looking for any reason to escape the daily grind… Well, this may be the perfect place to start.

Photographed in the wild terrain, where animals roam free and the sun beats down, the new collection from Zulu and Zephyr is a mix of multi-tasking, safari-inspired separates, perfect for any chic, sexy getaway. The range includes raw hem linen, clean slip dresses, button down denim as well as the label’s signature swimwear pieces. All created in earth hued tones like khaki, plum, marigold, clay and just a touch of token safari leopard print.

My favourite pieces which are available to purchase online now include; The Terra Firma Over-sized Dress featured in the stripe print above. As well as the Solid Ground Dress in White . Stomping Grounds Dress and Stomping Grounds Shirt and Shorts. To shop the current Zulu And Zephyr Ranger collection, and look out for additional pieces which will be arriving shortly click here.

Life has been so overrun with work and other things lately that I haven’t had a chance to focus on my blog in weeks. However the chaos is finally clearing and I promise to make more time to properly keep you in the loop. First, with the enchanting new collection from Keepsake The Label. A range consisting of fluid trench coats, flared pants, mini length dresses and off the shoulder styles. I have to admit, some pieces aren’t ideal for the cooler weather. However there really is no better time than the present to begin planning your new spring wardrobe. Especially one which features pretty pastel tones, softly flushed neutrals, navy and black. All imbued with a sense of romance, delicate lace, flowing silks and a deconstructed beauty.

My favourite piece from the collection is the perfect little black dress for the season ahead; The Much More Mini Dress in Black. Featured in the very first and very last image above. I love that this dress is also perfectly teamed with the Be Still Flared Pants for a fresh take on this current trend. You can find the dress and buy it for yourself at the Fashion Bunker by clicking here. Other pieces from this collection that I absolutely love include; The Shake It Up Dress in Navy . Tomorrow Mini Dress in Black . Not To Be Mini Dress in Black . Much More Maxi Dress in Black and the Chain Reaction Trench Coat in Black. To shop the entire Keepsake The Label Foundations collection visit the Fashion Bunker by clicking here.

What To Wear This Long Weekend

Can you believe that it is the Anzac Day long weekend in just a couple of days? I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe how quickly the first few months of this year have gone by. I have to admit, I have been looking forward to an extra day away from the office and a chance for a little extra rest and relaxation.

As for my long weekend wardrobe. I don’t want to put too much time or energy into what I wear. So I’ll be turning to easy breezy, chic pieces that feel comfortable all around the clock. Lazying around the house in a uniform of cotton, linen and silk. Fresh faced, most likely with bed hair, while embracing my inner couch potato.
