I actually took these photos back in spring, but forgot to upload them to the blog. I always gravitate towards a pair of tailored shorts, and these ones look particularly elegant, especially with the trench coat thrown over the top. I love how the stripe of orange lifts the outfit and adds interest.

H&M Icons Jumpsuit

Carine Roitfeld made me do it. She looked so fantastic in a boiler suit that when I saw this H&M version I had to try it. At only $50 I felt it was a reasonable risk to take. The verdict? I love it, my husband hates it….I could have predicted that one!

Zimmermann is an iconic Australian brand, probably known more for its gorgeous swimwear than clothing. Shell and I have long been fans of the brand’s feminine aesthetic. You can always get a beautiful summer or beach dress from Zimmermann. I actually found this one whilst in Australia, and dressed it up for winter by adding my trust leather jacket and Chanel boy. This would probably qualify as a summer outfit in Europe, but the Brisbane winter is so mild I could get away with it!

I love the chevron effect of this Stella McCartney knit. I bought it last year and and worn it quite a few times since. Shell actually has a Rag and Bone version in the opposite colour way, which looks fantastic as well. Such an easy piece to wear which adds interest to any outfit. My only issue is I have a suspicion I may have shrunk it a little in the wash…it’s now a bit more cropped than oversized. Whoops!

Currently I am loving all things French. When I say currently what I really mean is for the past 5 years! Ever since my first journey to the French capital I have fallen in love with the French way of life. The food (namely the fromage, macarons and pain au chocolat), champagne, wine, architecture, interiors, style and fashion were just the start! I have recently moved on to some literature and have just finished reading French Children Don’t Throw Food – something quite relevant to my current stage of life. I was excited to then receive a surprise gift from my husband in the mail – my next read, the very apt How To Be Parisian Wherever You AreHow did he know of this very recently released book? I think Vanessa may have played some role in this… Thank you – you know me too well!
