Marylebone 6

Marylebone Focus

One of my favourite London nabes has to be the charming enclave of Marylebone. A short walk from the West End, Marylebone is the perfect place to spend the day. As per, my focus will be firmly on the shopping (of which there is quality and quantity in Marylebone), with a few additional things to see and do for good measure.

Midi Skirt 4

January – Midi Skirt

After spending an idyllic month back in my beloved Australia in the middle of the Australian summer, I’m back in London. And it’s bloody freezing. No one is going out. Its hard to look stylish in arctic temperatures. How to survive January in the northern hemisphere? Below, I share with you my personal strategy which, amongst other things, involves a midi skirt… Continue reading “January – Midi Skirt”

Copenhagen Shopping 1

Copenhagen Guide – Shopping for Every Budget

Copenhagen Girls are most apparent during the Danish capital’s fashion weeks (Aug and Jan/Feb), when they roam the streets like a wildly coloured wolf pack on bicycles, exuding a laid-back vibe and insouciant attitude.

Danish fashion design is attracting a global following with the rise and rise of its local designers. And this is good news for anyone who likes a healthy dose of shopping while visiting this ridiculously hip city.

In my latest collab with the finger-on-the-pulse Luxe City Guides, I give you my top tips for shopping in achingly-cool Copenhagen – for every budget. Read the full story on Luxe City Guides here (and book mark it for holiday-planning purposes). For pics of my favourite Danish designs keep reading…

Summer Office Apropos 2

Summer Office Apropos

Having lived most of my life in cooler climates (Melbourne, Dublin and London), I’m not as good at summer as I am at the transitional seasons. Don’t get me wrong. Summer is my all time favourite month. It’s the month when there are roof-top cocktails/shenanigans, sun-soaked picnics and people just seem to be better looking in general. But sartorially speaking, for me summer is a little bit tricky. First of all, I don’t like to spend too much on a wardrobe that I’ll only wear a couple of months out of the year (thank you, London) unless it will last the test of time. Second, summer office apropos is not as easy as it sounds… Continue reading “Summer Office Apropos”

Summer City Style 4

Summer Style in the City

Despite having grown up in in the warm and sunny climes of Australia (well, Melbourne), I tend to struggle when it comes to summer city style. In theory it should be easy. Sun dresses, floaty skirts, strappy sandals, what’s the problem?

Well, unless I am heading straight to the beach for a day on and in the water, or to a clifftop bar for aperols at sunset, then I find it hard to go “fully summer” in my look. So where does that leave me? Continue reading “Summer Style in the City”

Casual Friday 3

Casual Friday

When I was starting out in my career as a lawyer in a large Australian law firm, the dress code was uber-conservative. Suits. That was basically all you were allowed to wear. God knows how I managed to get dressed each morning without falling asleep. I got on board with it nevertheless, believing that a nicely tailored, navy pantsuit would be the key to my career success. I tried to mix it up a bit and add my own flair, but back then when it came to a strictly corporate dress code there was a limit to what fabulous shoes could do to an otherwise boring outfit. Surely Casual Friday would have been my chance to bridge the yawning (literally) chasm between my workplace-lawyer self and my real self… Continue reading “Casual Friday”
