I’ve always been intrigued and inspired by power dressing, I mean it’s amazing what a good pair of tailored pants or a fitted suit jacket can do to enhance or change a certain style or look. Power dressing is in reality dressing more like men but how do you stay true to your own style? Stay true to being a women? The answer – make it your own! Mix and match different styles and trends with the power dressing essentials including tailored pants, suit jacket, business shirt etc.
However, think of women like Anna Wintour! She is an absolute goddess within the power dressing world because she makes it her own! Many of you I am sure are familiar with her signature look – a pretty, feminine floral dress with the slick bob and of course those infamous black sunnies! Does she need to dress like a man to feel and be successful? I think not! Its really all about what you put on to make you feel powerful as well as feeling comfortable within your own skin – for me this is my true powerhouse outfit.
I decided I wanted to twist power dressing into something strong, feminine, sophisticated and classic while adding a regal, military touch.

Tropical, bright shades are always the go for perfect Summer style.
This colour combination of bright and black is definitely a great way to have a mix of two diverse styles.
These eye shades are my absolute summer essentials, especially for my colour eyes which are hazel/green. So if any of you have the same you should have a palette with these colours because they complement and really make green eyes pop.

Summer is here and I am so ready! I must admit that summer is definitely my favourite season. Summer to me mean beach, sunnies, hats, shorts, cotton dresses and overall comfortable fashions. I can get up throw on a beach dress and a pair of sunnies and be ready to go in 10 minutes (well almost).
This outfit is a classic, cool, chic, comfortable summer look that is so easy to find in the stores. Ruffled tops are everywhere at the moment as a result of it being recently used within many designers collections (Dion Lee, Balmain, Gucci, Ellery, Christopher Kane).
Hope this gives a bit of Summer outfit inspo!

I have never seen Sydney so busy! It was so nice to see everyone out and about with their family and friends enjoying the beautiful lights from the Vivid festival. I had such a fantastic night with my two favourite Jemima’s who never fail to make me laugh. Somehow the catch up turned into an impromptu photo-shoot so I hope you all enjoy the photos!
