Grey skinny jeans, a white tee and a blazer seems like my uniform of choice. Nothing better than knowing you can rely on a certain look and feel confident that you look put together, when you feel anything but. A jam packed week of meetings, events, filming and prepping for my upcoming trip to New York and London fashion weeks is starting to take its toll, and its nice to have my uniform to fall back on when everything else feels so chaotic.
I've highlighted my love for a black leather skirt on a few occasions (see here, here, here, here, here … honestly I could go on!), more than a few to be honest. My point being, if you weren't convinced this was a wardrobe staple then you need to go to above links as they will assist in changing your opinion!
Worn with t-shirts, button up shirts, tanks and knits, its a favourite in my wardrobe and I hope its a favourite in yours too. Depending on the thickness of the leather and shape of the design (pencil versus A-line), a leather skirt can perfectly accentuate your curves, or help you play with proportions.
This outfit is a combination of a few high rotation pieces in my wardrobe. The coat from a couple of seasons ago that never looks dated. A high neck top that I have in a few different colours and cuts, proudly one of my biggest Asos finds! Charcoal jeans with perfectly distressed detailing. The crossover bag that is by my side each and every day. And a pair of boots that are perfect in more ways than one. The only new addition is the belt, which I was pretty excited to add to by very limited belt collection. But with holes all along its length, it instantly changes from being worn on the hips and waist without any fuss.
I also got the chance to catch up with the beautiful Liz from Street Smith when she was in Sydney recently. Only getting to see eachother briefly during the fashion week frenzies, its always nice to catch up properly.
In love with this black v neck dress by Camilla and Marc, it's the perfect effortless black midi dress to add to the collection. The midi is a trend that seems to have lasted the distance. At first I was actually a little apprehensive that this length would 'cut me off', but I'm actually opting for this length more and more. This is an example of trying styles out that, even if you think that perhaps they won't suit you, as you may find that they actually do!
My Love affair with wide leg pants continues! I think i'm going to end up with as many trousers as I have jeans (I have a 2 week supply at the ready!). Some people collect shoes, some collect bags, some collect nail polish, and turns out i'm starting to collect an assortment of pants!
But I love these ones. But more so, I love how they make me feel. Like i'm all business!
