Take these 4 pieces on holiday. See you there.

 Ok, I am not one of those people cluttering your feed with an endless number of European Summer photos. God, I wish I was.

Miss Sydney has been making us envious people a little happier with this ‘almost Spring’ weather. On weekends I have been wearing pieces that I would usually take on my Summer holidays:

Chloe always offers beautiful pieces through their exclusive capsule collection with Net-A-Porter for that planned holiday, or even those weekends at home which seem like you could be in Italy. Waiter – Rose, olives, pizza, oh and cannoli. YES.

6 items I wear that will never date

Lets talk about the pieces (a.k.a staples) in my wardrobe that will never date. The pieces I can get the cost per wear down to the dollar (or even cent!)

 


1. A black heel: And, no, I don’t mean just one pair. Invest in a few. I treasure my Ellery heels.

2. A black trouser: I wear a lot of denim, however I sometimes find myself wanting a more tailored look, so I opt for a black trouser. I have 5 pairs in my wardrobe, but my cropped Acne Studios come out on top.

3. A black knit: When it comes to a knit, I like them slimming. And by that I mean firm, not too tight, just comfortable. They elongate your torso, bring in your waist (Yes. Please.) and can be tucked into my numerous pairs of 90’s denim. My Misha Nonoo turtleneck does just that. #winwin

4. A denim jean: This is a no brainer, if I worked out the cost per wear of my 90s Calvin Klein jeans, it would make a pack of gum seem expensive.

5. A Winter Coat: Each season I do love to invest in a new coat to add to the collection. My chocolate brown Josh Goot is a very loved addition this season.

6. Statement earrings: Ok, I know some of you won’t agree classifying these Monies statement earrings a ‘staple.’ However, I have always worn statement earrings, so yes ladies, in my wardrobe, they are! Pass them down to your daughters (when/if you have them) and they can thank me later.


 

Now unless I wear out the soles of my heels from having a little too much fun, or loose ONE of my earrings (story of my life), I can guarantee you, I will still be wearing these pieces in five years.

Moral of the story: Invest in staples.

I have counted and these are the shoes I wear the most

Wednesdays in (Philippe Model) sneakers.

Gone are the days I used to feel the best in heels. It was all about elongating the legs and coming home with blisters on the back of your heels and a strain in one of your calf muscles. Yes, I used to wear 6 inch heels (not kidding) back with the ‘couldn’t be shorter’ dress. Today, you will see me working hard, and running around in my favourite denim and sneakers. The fact that sneakers can be worn to dinner back with dresses and not be frowned upon in the present day is a ‘hallelujah’ moment for us women. 

Embrace the sneaker.

Lets talk about the black dress. I would wear a different one every day if I could. They are always an easy go-to, those kind of outfits you don’t have to think about in the morning (or night!). Throw your hair up into a bun and voila! It actually looks like you tried! Now that is a go-to baby.

I wore this gem (Atout Studios) to dinner last Friday night back with tassels and heels. I was able to eat every course without having to pop a button. She has the perfect amount of flow from the front, not being tight in any areas, and has a hole at the back, adding a little sex. YES.

My take on a black dress

She is a goodie.

Dinner Party Ghost Image

SHOP: Dinner at mine? See you at seven.

Entertain in your home, yours friends/family will enjoy it more. Play records, laugh and create memories. Wear a dress, skirt or denim, back with flats. Flats don’t ruin the wooden floors. Wear a pair of statement earrings, they are very fun. Serve on organic shaped plates, with brass cutlery and smoked glass tumblers.

Take it back to the 90’s and wear a crop top

Wear a crop, it isn’t that scary. 

When I first think of a crop top, I think of Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon and Julia Roberts in the 90’s. Even Britney Spears and Miss Aguilera in the 00’s. Lets hit it baby, one more time. 

I have a rule, I usually abide by (and no, I am not including the horrendous outfits I used to wear last decade) the rule to not wear tight on tight. So no crop tops back with tight high waisted jeans for me. I like to relax the look a little. Wear a crop top, back with loose tailored pants.
