Technically we have moved into Autumn yet we are yet to feel the season change here in Melbourne that I am desperately awaiting. While we still have our summer wardrobe hanging around I have been planning and sourcing my next purchases for a while. I can’t get enough of knits and layers – ever. So what do I have coming into the wardrobe? I don’t love the sense of the word ‘trends’ but you cant ignore what brands are selling and what styles filter down to the high street. I prefer to take the trend and adhere it to my own style. Take the 70’s flavour. I will inject a bit of tan into my sea of black leather and may give a suede midi a go. I happen to already love denim but this season we see flares, cropped, frayed edges and high waists continue so you can step outside your skinny leg, ripped knee zone if you feel like tapping into something new.

As new seasons come as do new levels of spending which I am not against of course if it involves ‘Investment’ purchasing but picking up smart staples to add into the mix does not go unnoticed. My monthly trip to UniHill had me ticking some boxes of trend pieces to top up the wardrobe.

First buy was a knit dress/oversized knit to envy my Hope Stockholm knit that I will and have worn at every opportunity I can. You gotta love the ease of skinny jeans, cons and a beautiful knit. I hit up Witchery and with an extra % off the sale I snapped up the grey marle perfection in a knit. Coming into winter and I got a knit on sale and sale again! Yep.

Next note would be the introduction of blush pink. Yes you heard right I am going to add some blush or nude through ‘the drobe’. Tapping into the ‘Romantic’ trend but keeping it real for me is the use of the softer tones and coloring in a piece that works in with my own style. You don’t have to go and buy a floral dress or embrace your inner boho if its not you. Country Road had me at hello with two full racks of sweater love in the perfect ‘Acne’ pink. Just add some layers of tee’s and a shirt, a leather jacket and some denim for the perfect slightly pretty flavour without losing the edge.

On the feet – Sneakers, mules and statement boots. There is a seriously good Converse store with every color, style and size you could ask for and I may or may not have been able to save enough to spend more on some kids kicks and mini cons socks for the one on its way. We all win!



  • Feeling the romance and 70’s vibe from Chloe and Zimmermann? Add some softer shades or color to the existed leather and denim pieces you wear religiously.
  • Get flat. Sneakers and runners are having some serious limelight moments so embrace the comfort and sporty cool vibe, why wouldn’t you?!
  • Layer Up. All the time and that includes neck ties, lace sleeves under shirts and jackets and also the humble Tee can work hard for you when wanting to achieve the right look. Be polished but undone like you just threw something together yet the hair, makeup and accessories say otherwise.
