Three Styles of Boots to Embrace This Winter

When you err on the short side (I’m 5’2”/158cm), finding flattering styles of boots is a bit like shopping for jeans – there are certain styles that will flatter your frame and other styles that are left for those less vertically challenged.  So you can imagine how it feels to find boot silhouettes that actually work.  You hang onto those for dear life!

And while height or build doesn’t necessarily limit your choices, there are different considerations to keep in mind for what suits.  For example, when I’m trying ankle boots, I prefer that they don’t sit too high above my ankle otherwise my legs look shorter.  Or for over-the-knee boots, I want there to be a bit of flexibility as to where they finish so that I’m not feeling like the boot is wearing me. 

So with that in mind, and with much trial and error of the various boot silhouettes on offer, here are the three boot styles that I’m embracing this winter.  

Chelsea Boots

Timeless and classic – they’re a style of boot I’ve relied on for many winters past.  I’ve had this black pair for a few years (and they’re still going strong) but I recently added this chestnut pair to my collection (as you would have seen in this post here).

I love the versatility of chocolate brown (and how well it goes with navy) so I’m really looking forward to incorporating these boots into more cold-weather outfits.

OTK Flat Boots

You can’t really go wrong with a pair of flat boots in the colder months and this over-the-knee style I’m wearing is a fantastic dupe for the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots (at a fraction of the cost).  They come in both leather and suede and I opted for suede to add a textural component to my outfits.

If you’re not familiar with the 5050 boot style, it has a split construction where the front comes in either a leather or suede finish and the back is comprised of a stretch panel. They’re an instantly recognisable design. And despite these being a rich black tone, they look great with white jeans, which I’m not averse to wearing during the colder months.

Knee-High Mid-Heel Boots

And the dressiest style of the lot would be these knee-high mid-heeled boots.  They’re a comfortable 7.5cm height with a block heel making these a practical choice if like me, you’re not so adept at getting around in high heels all day.

The chocolate brown hue is beautifully rich and it looks great paired with the neutrals in my wardrobe.  These are a great option for work and for going out (…and it’s getting increasingly safer to do so!).

Autumn Picks from the Marks & Spencer Sale – Classic Pieces for Your Transitional Wardrobe

This blog post is a paid for advertorial in collaboration with Marks & Spencer.

Marks & Spencer have kicked off another sale – 25% off when you spend over $150. It’s short but sweet, with the promotion only running until 11:59pm Sydney time on 21 April (ie. tomorrow night as part of Vogue’s Online Shopping Night), so I thought I’d share with you some pieces that I’ve picked up and round up my top 5 picks that are perfect for this transitional weather. 

If you’ve been eying anything, now’s definitely the time to see if it’s available to snap up!  Typically, a lot of M&S’ core styles are offered at a reduced price – like their hero staple trench coat and workwear tailoring.  And not only do these come in classic neutral tones, but some really fun and punchy seasonal hues if you’re a bit more adventurous. 

So here’s my Top 5:

Utility Jumpsuit

What has the simplicity of a dress and the practicality of pants? A jumpsuit of course!  It’s like a dress, but for pants people!  And its primary perk is that you can look polished and put-together with minimal effort: just throw it on and you’re ready to go.

I’m sporting M&S’ Belted Utility Jumpsuit that has been released in a number of shades already.  I’m a huge fan of this soft khaki version and love the utilitarian features while at the same time being a really elegant piece thanks to the tapered legs and belted tie waist.

Shacket

Now, let’s talk jackets.  I’m a big fan of this cream coloured shacket, a style that is seemingly everywhere at the moment.  While there are lots of statement pieces out there in all sorts of prints and colours, I think a classic hued version makes for a stylish and practical lightweight jacket option.  It adds a layer of dimension to a basic cold weather staple and the belted waist creates a lovely silhouette.

This shacket is made from a premium linen-blend fabric and is unlined for a lightweight feel.  I’ve worn this with a tee underneath on warmer days, but also layered over a turtleneck knit, as I’ve pictured above.  It offers versatility in spades and is a great option for both the office and on the weekend.

Trench Coat

No surprises why this one made the list of my top picks from their collection – my favourite trench coat is back in stock and it now comes in five colours for the new season.  Quite frankly, this is an absolute must-have from the Marks & Spencer sale. It’s worth noting that this piece always sells out so you have to be quick to avoid disappointment.

I’ve had this trench in my collection for a while now and it has become one of my wardrobe staples.  I rely on it for work and off-duty – it elevates the most basic of outfits and is a practical choice too, thanks to its water-repellent Stormwear fabric.  The number of 5-star reviews for this trench speak volumes.  I wear mine in a size UK/AU 6 (but I would have also been happy with a size 8 too). 

Mia Trousers

A great fitting pair of trousers are a bit of a no-brainer to have in your closet.  The slim-fitting Mia trousers are so versatile and a great building block – particularly for the office – and they never go out of style.  Beige and caramel tones continue to be popular and I’m totally on board.  It adds a bit more to those ‘winter whites’ and it’s a fresh change from the classic black pants that most of us have in our work wardrobes. 

M&S trousers* (sz 10 short), M&S shacket* (sz 8), Senreve handbag* (review here), Dior slingbacks, Ray Ban sunglasses

Good quality comes at every price, but more importantly, I try to build my wardrobe around items that I’m going to have for a long time, regardless of whether they’re high street or high end.  If there’s one area in your wardrobe where you can certainly save, it’s tailoring.  M&S do trousers so well and their Mia style is one that gets re-released every season in a heap of new shades.  I wear mine in a size 10 (short) – perfect for my fellow petite pals.

Relaxed Trousers

To round things out we’ve got a pair of relaxed trousers, great for when you’re reporting for duty from home or frolicking about on your weekend.  While comfort is key, I still want my relaxed ensembles to look smart, and these fit the bill.  I’ve paired my trousers with my beloved M&S linen shirt in the look above and wore this ensemble to the office on a Casual Friday. Both are noteworthy picks from the Marks & Spencer sale!

M&S trousers* (sz 8), M&S linen shirt* (sz 8), R.M. Williams boots – AU link / International link, Celine bag (review here), Ray Ban sunglasses

The trousers are made from a premium tencel and linen blend and are an easy and breathable option. They’re high waisted with front pleats and come with roomy utility pockets.  The trousers come cuffed though in my usual fashion, I’ve folded them up further so they sit on my ankles.  I wear mine in a size 8.

R.M. Williams Boots Try-On and First Impressions

This blog post & shop widgets use affiliate links.  
Items that were received as PR product are marked with an asterisk * 
Read the disclaimer about affiliate links & PR products here

You’d be hard-pressed to find a list of Australian fashion icons without an R.M. Williams entry.  With an almost 90-year history, R.M. Williams’ boots have earned cult status in the footwear arena and are widely considered to be the national boot of Australia. 

I’ve wanted a pair of R.Ms for the longest time and I’ve finally bitten the bullet with my very first pair.  I tried on a few styles to find the pair that I liked the most and while it was by no means an easy decision to make, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share my thoughts on the different styles that I tried (as well as the style I ultimately chose!).  

Originally crafted for the rugged (and unforgiving) Australian outback, the boots are now a popular choice amongst urbanites.  And what started as a mail order business back in 1932 by Reginald Murray Williams after the Great Depression, flourished into an Australian success story.   To this day, they still use the same production making techniques and every single pair of boots is handcrafted from a single piece of leather in Adelaide.  

While they have an overall ‘everyman’ aesthetic, the prices of R.Ms put them squarely in the luxury category.  You’re looking at upwards of $595 for a pair of their boots and it took me a while to get my head around this.  (Also, they hardly go on sale or included in any discounted promotion.)  The brand stands firm by its pricing, proudly touting “You can screw them up and do what you like.  You can’t destroy them.” 

The iconic Chelsea boots come in five styles for women – Millicent, Lady Yearling, Maya, Adelaide (in flat and heeled) and Craftsman.  From time to time, seasonal designs are released but for purposes of this post, I’m sticking to their classic line, as they were the only boots I properly considered.  

The three styles that I was most interested in and tried were the Millicent, Lady Yearling and Adelaide.  While I’ll go into the different design aspects of those styles, all the boots I tried were crafted from a single piece of yearling leather, had elasticised gussets on the side and woven branded pull tugs.

So let’s get to it.  

Millicent

Design features:

  • Pointed needled toe
  • 4.5cm cuban-inspired heel

L: Millicent Boot in Chestnut; R: Millicent Boot in Black

Initially, I had my heart set on the Millicent style.  The pointy toe and low heels seemed to be right up my alley and I thought it would be a nice feminine take on the classic Chelsea. While I liked how they look from the front, I wasn’t so sure about the side profile. I put it down to the fact that I’m petite and I’m pretty sure all you taller folk out there won’t have the same concerns.

Lady Yearling

Design features:

  • Rounded toe
  • 4.5cm block heel
  • Sits above the ankle

Lady Yearling in Chestnut

The rounded toe on this style is a sleek and narrow shape. The boot finishes just above the ankle and it provides an overall sleek silhouette. Unlike the Millicent which has a cuban heel, the Lady Yearling has a block heel. I tried this style on in both chestnut and black and had a hard time picking my favourite between the two.

Please excuse my public service lanyard… I was on a lunch break!

Adelaide Cuban Heel

Design features:

  • Rounded toe
  • 4.5cm cuban heel
  • Sits on the ankle

I consider these to be the most relaxed boot of the styles that I tried.  They’re still polished but given they’re a jodhpur boot, they sit on the ankle and don’t provide as sleek a silhouette as the Lady Yearling. The Adelaide style is the newest addition to the R.M. Williams family. It was introduced in 2016 after R.M. Williams was sold to overseas investors (perhaps in a show of heritage?) It was subsequently returned to Australian hands in late 2020.

What style did I ultimately choose?

I ummed and ahhed a lot about which style to choose but I ultimately settled for the Lady Yearling in Chestnut with a rubber sole.  You can expect a comprehensive review of these once I’ve given them a proper crack, so watch this space!  But having only just purchased them and worn them a couple of times already, I’m so stoked that they’re now part of my collection.

Where to Shop

I initially bought the Millicent boot from The Iconic to try as they always have such a friendly returns policy (and were running a promotion). But as I was waiting for them to arrive, I popped into the R.M. Williams store on my lunch break to try on the different styles properly. Personally, that in-store experience was hard to beat. I also paid a visit to David Jones but it’s worth noting that they don’t carry all the styles nor do they stock half-sizes.

I’d recommend the R.M. Williams stores as well as their online store which carries their complete line and offers the different soles (leather and rubber options). I’m a half size, so I ended up purchasing my boots from the R.M. Williams store in Westfield Sydney. They never run promotions on their shoes so I swallowed the lump in my throat and paid full freight.

Have you had your eye on these boots? And do you have any questions about the boots that you’d like me to factor in for my review? Be sure to pop them into the comments section below.

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you found my R.M. Williams boots try on to be helpful.

Everlane Washable Silk Review: Styles, Fabric and Sizing

This blog post & shop widgets use affiliate links.

While I love the luxury of silk, I’m not so keen on its maintenance.  It’s pretty demanding, particularly when you compare it to its fabric siblings like cotton, and on top of that, silk doesn’t come cheap.   Still, I’m of the view that there’s always a place in your wardrobe for silk pieces.  Silk blouses in particular are a wardrobe staple for me, especially for work, so I reluctantly put in the extra effort to care for them so they last.  

It seems the silk gods have heard our cries and recently, there has been an emergence of a low maintenance variety.  Silk shirts that never have to be dry cleaned? Sign me up! 

I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on several washable silk pieces from Everlane – my current go-to and general treasure trove for elevated basics.  Everlane’s Washable Silk collection currently consists of two styles – the Relaxed Shirt and the Henley.  They come in a variety of smart colours and I’ve been lucky enough to try out both styles.  

It’s worth noting that the texture of washable silk is noticeably different from the traditional version.  For starters, washable silk is noticeably thicker and its texture is sueded. It still flows and drapes like traditional silk and feels soft to the touch.  Personally, I’m not particularly keen on the satin finish of charmeuse (aka satin silk) and much prefer the matte finish of crepe de chine.  So for me, the washable silk ticks both boxes when it comes to texture and finish.  

Further, washable silk is a lot thicker and completely opaque unlike crepe de chine which can come up slightly sheer.  If you’re conscious about your bra showing underneath a lighter coloured traditional silk shirt, it won’t be a concern for you with washable silk.  But if you do like the sheer quality of old school silk, you mightn’t be a fan of this new washable variety. 

So here are my thoughts on the particular styles I’ve tried.

Washable Silk Henley

I’ll be honest, I didn’t have high hopes for this piece when I initially ordered it.  The styling on the website didn’t particularly inspire me but what drew me to the top was that I have nothing like it in my wardrobe.  Also, I have a lot of faith in Everlane’s design ethos so I was encouraged to give it a whirl. And I’m so glad I did.  

The henley has been a go-to for off-duty and casual ensembles.  It’s a cropped and boxy cut, so it looks great untucked with a pair of track pants (because, and I can’t believe I’m writing this, I now have a pair of ‘dressy’ track pants that I wear out of the house!) but it also looks great tucked into jeans, as you can see in the photos.

As for how I wear the top, I always keep the top two buttons undone (I don’t like how it looks completely buttoned up on me) and have predominantly worn the top with my sleeves folded up as I prefer the overall relaxed vibe, but also find it practical to do so with small humans in tow.

All in all, it’s a winner.  The perfect transitional piece as the weather gets cooler here.  I can’t picture myself wearing this to the office in business formal looks as I think the henley style is a tad too casual for that, but it hits the right mark for Casual Friday and elevated casual looks for the weekend. 

For reference, I have the Silk Henley in Bone in a size 0. 

Washable Silk Relaxed Shirt

So I don’t just have this in the one colour, but I’ve got it in three 🙈 Based on that, I think you can draw your own conclusions as to how I feel about this shirt!  But to avoid any doubt, I’m pretty chuffed with this particular style in the washable silk fabric.  It has a traditional point collar, found hem and two utility pockets.  A very classic and effortless style. 

Considering I’m back at the office now for several days a week, I love the ease of having these shirts to rely on.  It takes the hassle out of getting dressed for work but it’s also a great piece for the weekend too, because silk shirts are by nature, incredible versatile pieces. 

I’ve got the shirt in Bone, Covert Green and Powder Blue and I’ve got a mix of sizes 0 and 2 for a bit of variation in fit.  I’m a real fan of the relaxed cut and the versatility that it brings and I think it looks great both tucked and untucked – depending on how put together I want to look that day.

Caring for Washable Silk

To wrap up this post, I thought I’d touch on how I maintain the Everlane Washable Silk fabric.  After a couple of wears, I’ll pop it into the machine on a gentle cycle with like colours.  The care instructions also suggest tumble drying on low to maintain a silky hand feel, but we don’t have a dryer at home and so I just lay it flat on the drying rack.  After a quick steam, it’s ready to be worn once again.  As someone who loathes sending things to the dry cleaner, I’m pretty happy with these tops.

Three Pairs of my Favourite Work Shoes to Wear to the Office

Read the disclaimer about affiliate links & PR products here

In today’s post I wanted to share with you the shoes I’ve been enjoying wearing to the office now that I’ve been back for a few months.  And while back in my 20s I used to traipse (…or rather, clomp) around in my 10cm+ high heels in the office, aside from the fact that they weren’t the most practical of choices, I’ve found that they’re just not really necessary anymore.  A low-to-mid heel works just fine and they’re comfortable enough to walk around in all day and give that extra bit of height.  

In this post, I’m going to share three styles of shoes that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed wearing recently.

Sarah Flint Perfect Pumps

It should come as no surprise that I kick off my list of favourite work shoes with these pumps considering how often they’ve featured on my Instagram feed lately!  You can read about all the incredible features of the shoe in my comprehensive review having given my Taupe-coloured Perfect Pump 85 a good go. But in short, I love the shoe so much that I’ve since added the Black Suede version to my collection in the exact same style! It’s packed with considered features such as anatomical arch support and extra padding for comfort while being an aesthetically beautiful shoe. It’s the perfect work shoe.

The Fold Isola Pumps 

Another pair of my favourite work shoes are these croc-embossed leather heels are absolutely divine.  They’re an elegant take on a loafer featuring a statement point and a very walkable 45mm heel. There’s foam padding in the toe and a gel insert in the heel so they feel lovely and spongey when you’re walking.  Aside from being comfortable, the Italian craftsmanship is impeccable and they’re made from a lush croc-embossed beige leather.  I’ve had no trouble matching these heels with all the neutrals in my wardrobe, but I especially love how they look with navy.

Nicholas Kirkwood Beya Loafers

I added these loafers to my collection late last year having had them on my wish list for the longest time. While they cost a pretty penny (which is why I was hesitant to pull the trigger for so long), the wait was very much worth it. They’re exceptional quality loafers and I’ve got a ton of use out of them, particularly to the office when I want to keep things casual, but still polished. The loafers made of grained calfskin leather with a gold-tone plaque at the beveled heel. They were comfortable from the get-go and elevate the most basic of outfits putting them right up there with my favourite work shoes. I’m very keen to add different colours to my collection!

Acne Studios Canada Scarf Review – Is it Worth the Money?

It’s a classic tale.  Girl meets scarf.  Girl falls in love with scarf.  Girl can’t justify price for scarf.  Girl adds scarf to her wish list.  Then finally, the two live happily ever after.  Drama, intrigue & romance.  Of course, and you might have guessed that this is somewhat of an autobiographical tale because the girl in the tale is me, and the scarf in question is my Acne Studios Canada Scarf that had been on my wish list for what seemed like eons before I bit the bullet.  

So now that I’ve had it for over a year, the million dollar question remains – is it worth it?

When it comes to designer purchases, I’d categorise a scarf as the ultimate luxury buy.  It’s indulgent but without the eye-wateringly expensive price tags of RTW coats or handbags.  And if chosen well, it can be a smart addition to your wardrobe, particularly if it can be styled with the majority of your winter outfits, like a neutral toned scarf.  

The Acne Studios Canada Scarf is a permanent piece from the brand’s collection, and while there are now variations of the Canada Scarf on offer, the original version, which I have, is a deliciously soft and oversized unisex scarf that’s comprised of 100% wool.  Design-wise, it’s simple with fringing on both ends with a small logo tab above the textured fringe edges.  It perfectly embodies the minimalism of Acne Studios while at the same time being the cosiest and most comforting piece. It’s offered in an array of neutral tones and I must admit to being a bit paralysed by choice when it came to picking a colour.

Before splurging on this scarf, I was using a variety of scarves bought on the high street.  And while they all served me well, I haven’t looked back.  I’ve only got the one scarf in my collection and given how much I’ve used it, I’m looking to add a second one in a lighter neutral tone, like a beige or a camel. 

So do I think it’s worth the money?  Absolutely.  And while the answer to this question ultimately comes down to what you value, for a designer purchase, I couldn’t recommend a scarf enough.
