Feeling effortless in a silk skirt and boyfriend shirt

The everyday outfits I thoroughly enjoy wearing always seem to have one thing in common – they are effortless. I don’t like to feel uncomfortable and I surely don’t like to have to adjust my outfit on numerous occasions during the day.

I also can’t wear my jeans and t-shirts everyday, even though I would love to! So, I have invested in some other everyday items I feel effortless in. This outfit being a perfect example. Wearing a Penny Sage oversized blouse, Penny Sage silk skirt, Chloe heels, COS mustard socks, vintage Chanel bag (similar here and here) and Ray-Ban sunglasses.

If you are not the kind of person to wear colour, I have added in some classic pieces below you can add to your staple wardrobe.

Also, follow my snapchat (brooketestoni) for a little look into the behind the scenes of my crazy but fun life.

I obviously like to wear a statement boot. Statement boot version 2

You could of worn heeled points or Mary Janes to make this outfit look classic, however of course I went with a crazy gold boot.

Not just any crazy gold boot, these are the Romance Was Born x Beau Coops collaboration I was raving about a few posts ago. I couldn’t help but wear them (again) to fashion week. I paired them with my Vetements denim, Penny Sage blouse (oh, the 70’s vibes!), Proenza Schuler PS1 bag and my husbands late Fathers Ray-Bans from the 70s.

Time to experiment with boots of colour my friends, black is always the safe option.

The hair trends from fashion week you will want to recreate

As you might already know, last week I attended fashion week in my hometown to view the new Resort collections of our (very!) talented designers and to also report on my favourite runway hair trends on behalf of Dyson.

I was so lucky to team up with Dyson, who are about to launch their innovative and sophisticated hair dryer, the Dyson Supersonic. Check it out here.

From slicked straight hair and messy ponytails to tussled 90’s rocker curls and topknots, Australian designers know not to overdo a look. I love how we keep it effortless and natural.

Even though I particularly loved the rocker curls in the Aje show, the hair that stood out the most were the voluminous curls perfected on show at Macgraw.

Thank you Dyson for lending me the only sample of the hairdryer currently in the country for the week, it definitely lives up to its expectation. I cannot wait to get my hands on one when they launch in Australia later in the year.

Until my next post.

 Thank you Dyson for collaborating with me to create this content.

MBFW Day 3 called for a pop of colour

Day 2 of fashion week called for a pop of colour. No one does a pop red quite like Tommy Hilfiger, so this silk bomber was a must. Pairing it back with a white pleated Dion Lee skirt, Gucci heels, COS mustard socks and my Faye Chloe bag, it was go-go-go all day. Thankfully my new Gucci (low) heels are the most comfortable shoe I have ever bought. Thank you Gucci for making my hikes in between shoes a lot more enjoyable.

Until tomorrow friends.

Day 2: MBFWA – Starry eyes

The morning of Day 2 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia saw me drowning myself in stars. If wearing too many stars, or stars on stars, was frowned upon, call me a rebel. How could you say no to this Max Mara pant and top? It makes me happy just looking at it.

If you are not daring enough to pair them together, pair them back with a wardrobe basic like your staple denim or crisp white tees.

My Chloe Faye bag has been my lifesaver as it is JUST fits in my camera, hence the reason it looks it is expecting.

I am now off to the Christopher Esber presentation.

Day 1 of MBFW: Adding a little colour to a white outfit

Ok, so today marks the first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. A little anxious is a good way to describe how I am feeling. Only because my timetable of shows is looking a little busy! It will be no stop for the next week.

Be sure to follow me on instagram and snapchat to keep up to date with my daily outfits and fashion/beauty trends from the runway. I will be the hair trend reporter this year for Dyson Hair (the new hairdryer hitting stores in the next few months. AKA #gamechanger) so get ready for a few posts on my favourite hair trends from the top runway shows.

This afternoon I attended the first show of the week. That being the extremely talented Toni Maticevski. You always outdo yourself, what a beautiful show.

I wore a Toni Maticevski skirt, Karen Walker knit tee, Charlotte Olympia heels and my vintage Chanel handbag.

For now, over and out. I will be back tomorrow.

That simple outfit with a statement boot

It is easy to wear those comfy 90’s jeans and a crisp white tee (aka my favourite go-to outfit) however opt for a statement shoe instead of a classic one. Introducing the new Romance Was Born x Beau Coops boots, or should I say the boots of my dreams. The moment I saw this dreamy collaboration, I was taken. Army green and gold, a combination made in heaven.

It was a classic outfit until I showed my feet. Now it is a party.

Wearing – vintage Levi’s, vintage Chanel and Romance Was Born x Beau Coops boots.

Sundays in stripes

There is something so classic about wearing stripes. This Sandro dress is a perfect effortless shirtdress in dark blue, white and mustard (yes – mustard!). I wore a cashmere turtleneck underneath for an added layer and to protect me from the (now) crisp afternoons in Sydney.

I paired my outfit back with the new ‘it’ loafers. Boyy oh Boyy I love them.

Slipping back into it

Ok lets take it back to my campaign with Westfield, I was talking about wearing ‘Boudoir’ wear out. Well, looks like I am not giving that trend a rest anytime soon. When a label mixes an (oh so comfortable!) silk slip and my favourite colour together, pretty much sums up outfit heaven for me.

Today, I lunched at my ol’ time favourite Bottega Louie with my husband. This is the restaurant where ‘no dessert’ is not an option.

Today wearing a Silk Laundry silk slip dress, Hansen & Gretel longlined blazer, vintage Chanel handbag, Emelli earrings, Holly Ryan bangle and Zaliah leather slides.

Would you like to add even more orange to that?

Ok, yes I have an obsession with orange. And I believe that you can layer as much of it as you like.

Keeping warm from the brisk afternoon winds here in LA with a turtleneck over this oversized Penny Sage silk top. I wore my staple Rollas denim during the day and changed into Manning Cartell silk pants for night. I am really enjoying wearing tonal, earthy and (surprisingly) poppy colours at the moment, so get ready to see more of it!

Wearing Penny Sage silk top, Topshop turtleneck knit (old season), Rollas denim (day), Manning Cartell silk pants (night)(SS16/17 – similar here), Holly Ryan earrings, Tony Bianco heels and vintage Chanel bag.

Take it off the shoulder

Whether it is the 90’s trend, graphic bags, extra long earrings or haute slippers, I’m lusting over this season’s winter trends. There is one trend in particular which I have heavily invested in and that is the ‘off the shoulder trend.’ It screams subtle sexy, and let’s be honest who hasn’t want to look subtly sexy? No need to ramp up your cleavage or wear an extra mini skirt, this trend shows enough skin for his imagination to want more.

Here I am shooting my favourite trend for Westfield#ownyourstory AW16 campaign.

Wear an off the shoulder top back with denim casually over the weekend, or dressed up with a short skirt and heels for night. Wear a strapless dress to an important event or get that little bit more forward by wearing an off the shoulder top on top of a black skivvy for extra warmth.  Can we take a moment to thank Christopher Esber for designing my dream dress, and for Cue for making business wear on point and subtly sexy. Watch the videos to see how I personally style this trend for Winter.
