This year I’ve had such fun with fashion! I’ve played with layers, reached for clothes I hadn’t worn for a while, created three costumes, entered my power suit era, matched my accessories to what I’m doing, had things professionally tailored, and dressed up more fancy.
It was hard narrowing these down to 10 photos, so I’ve made collages of outfits from each month. Here are my fave outfits of this year – the ones that made me feel fucking fabulous.
The last four are my ultimates!
- the Aje dress that I wore to Marie Claire’s Woman of the Year Awards was so opulent, and I enjoyed adding pops of colour with accessories.
- I saw the yellow tartan suit in Valley Girl at the start of the year – I’d been longing for a Clueless outfit to wear on Halloween. I wore it skating – so fun!
- When I was told a koala cuddle was booked in for my working holiday to the Sunshine Coast, I knew the Romance was Born x May Gibbs dress would be the perfect dress for the occasion.
- I wore the dreamy Sheike pink floral dress with gold boots to a musical in March – I felt so glam. It’s meant to be a midi dress but it’s a maxi on me.
Note: while I bought the majority of what I’m wearing here, some of these items were gifted – Therapy Shoes hot pink boots – which have been the biggest talking point of my outfits lately; neon bird top from @allycatartshop; purple check suit from PWR the Label; blue and pink dress from BONDS; blue and purple handbag from Ashlee Lauren; cupcake brooch from Parksy Pop Designs : and the koala cuddle was a part of a work trip to Australia Zoo thanks to Visit Queensland, Australia).
