I celebrated my birthday in October (35 now… eek!) and given the shocking year we’re all living through, I couldn’t feel more grateful for the happiness that my loved ones bring into my life. Despite current times making it more challenging to do so, it’s so important to celebrate all the milestones, because they serve as wonderful reminders of what’s important.

As we head into November here in Australia, the weather (which should be warming up) has been all over the place lately. (Though I’m not complaining as I’ve been enjoying extending the life of my knits for a little bit longer!)

My monthly round-ups are a way for me to share my style posts and favourites that I’ve enjoyed for the month. I’ve shared reviews of bags and shoes and reflected in several posts on my personal style now that I’m in my 30s.

I hope you’re all doing well and staying positive, wherever you are in the world.

Celine Sangle Bag Review: a highly requested review of my favourite purchase this year – a secondhand Celine Sangle Bag which you’d be very familiar with if you follow me over on Instagram! I talk sizing, wear & tear and what fits inside.

Outfits with every Everlane cashmere knit I own: I’ve relied on one too many of their cashmere sweaters to get me through months of working from home this year.

Style tips for when you’re no longer in your 30s: I stand by the fact that age is just a number, and now that I’m in my mid-30s, I’ve never felt more confident in my personal style.

Wardrobe edits I made in my 30s: It’s only natural for your style to evolve as you get older. And while there are certain wardrobe staples that transcend time, lots of others are naturally cast aside as you mature. I talk through the pieces that I wore in my 20s that I no longer wear and what they’ve since been replaced with.

I placed my first order with Arket and share a try-on and my first impressions of the pieces I ordered.

One Item, Four Ways: Khaki Pants – I’ve styled up khaki pants as part of my styling series!
