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!

Absolute paradise. It is paradise up in northern NSW. The beautiful coast and its crystal clear waters setting the perfect day to take some gorgeous beach shots. I was constantly surrounded by natures beauty that took me by surprise at every turn. The seashore offered everything from star fish in the rock pools to the breathtaking rock faces above the sand.
Now is the perfect time to bring out the summer bikinis that haven’t been worn for a year or even buying a new one! The bikini that I am wearing in the photos is a new addition to my wardrobe and I absolutely adore it! The smart, monochrome feel of the outfit perfectly contrasts with the casual, beach theme. Sometimes its the simple outfits that can make you feel amazing and look the best.

Lets go back to basics. Now I know a bright top never killed anybody but some days I find it easier to fling on a plain white T with a gorgeous pair of jeans. I never have to worry about anything matching or the style portrayed because I know the look will always work! This outfit holds a casual, yet beautiful look that can work on anyone. Although it is a common style it is classic, simple and accessible which is why it is universally appealing. I mean almost every girl would have a pair of jeans and a plain white T-shirt in their wardrobe. Coming into the Aussie summer it is a perfect, essential look that, while being casual maintains a high level of fashion and style.
I chose to go for a more natural, summer beach style as shown through my accessories, makeup and hair. By adding the aviator sunnies, watch, rings and my favourite Wittner sandals I was able to match my unique style. However there are so many different ways you can accessorise this outfit to make it your own so I say GO FOR IT!
