A slightly different outfit post to normal, but this kinda feels more me. I'm all about being relaxed, real and undone.
I'm flying off to NYC today for fashion week and I want to keep the above in mind. After a 24 hour flight I'm not going to feel like my usual self, but as long as I'm relaxed and real I'll get through the craziness of whats to come. Eyedrops will also help.
Heard the phrase 'Normcore' being thrown around of late but you're left utterly confused? You're not alone. Apparently its the combination of 'normal' and 'hardcore'. I don't really get the hardcore part, but the normal part I get. Basically its the new phrase for dressing in casual wear and everyday items that aren't trend driven. Or how I like to put it, the trend thats not a trend, thats now trending.
Want to be part of it? Well most likely you already are. But if in doubt just combine all your 'off duty' pieces in the one look. The good thing is you'll be very comfortable!
This is one of my two trends for Westfield Carindale's 'Most Hunted' campaign that I think you'll be keen beans for this season! All items are available right now in Westfield Carindale. And the hunt begins…
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.
