“This two piece combination is one of my favourites. The linen pleat skirt is so easy to wear with the stripe top, which is like a fancy t-shirt that can be dressed up and down. Together with the slides for day to day, then swap out with the wedge and you’re ready for Christmas cocktails”.
The Dress For Every Occasion
“Christmas drinks, yes. Christmas day with wedges, you bet. This dress is going to everything you’ve got on through the month of December and into summer holidays. Best of all, it can be wrapped up, thrown in your suitcase and worn when you get to your destination with no ironing required”.
The Hero Shorts
“Breathable cotton and linen are ideal when the heat dials up. These neutral coloured linen shorts are great because you can layer in a variety of tops. I love this ikat design one, but of course, these shorts will look just as great with a striped t-shirt or any number of printed tops”.

This month is about enjoying colour, print and natural fabrics as we celebrate summer and the holiday season. I’m going to show you some elevated, casual pieces that are not only versatile, but will make a big style statement wherever you and your suitcase go.
The thing I love most about summer is linen and this two piece combination is one of my favourites. This fabulous Yarn Dyed Stretch Linen Pleat Skirt with the pockets and the pleat detail, so easy to wear and of course the Linen Stripe Top. It’s like a fancy t-shirt, which is what I love about it. It can be dressed up, it can be dressed down. Together with the Rhea Slides, the black with the gold circular disk, I love them, super easy for day to day. But then swap them out with the wedge and you are ready for Christmas cocktails.
Well isn’t this Overlay Foliage Dress the go anywhere holiday dress. I love it. I tell you, Christmas drinks, yes. Christmas day with the Claudia Wedge, you bet. It’s going to everything you’ve got on through the month of December and summer. Best of all, it can be wrapped up, thrown in your suitcase and out it shakes when you get to your destination.
So if a dress isn’t for you, how about this other one piece wonder, my Ocelot Print Romper. Everyone knows I love a jumpsuit, particularly when it has pockets. I love the fact that it is this wonderful print, it’s camouflaging and going to work on so many different body shapes. It’s so easy to wear, I love it with the Claudia Wedge to dress it up to go to something fancy and fabulous, but of course I can wear the Lia Micro-Perforated Leather Sneaker and I’m off to the family catch up in the park. So two fabulous options, just a swap of a shoe and you’re going anywhere from the glam BBQ, to dinner, to drinks, to Christmas day.
Does anything say high summer holidays more than this combo. I love it, cotton and linen; they’re really what you need to be wearing in January when the heat is dialed up. Now, what you need is a great pair of shorts that fit really well that are a great neutral, so you can layer in a whole bunch of different tops and you need a really strong lineup of options to get through the summer months. I love the Ikat Woven Top but of course, these great Yarn Dyed Stretch Linen Pull On Shorts are going to look just as great with a Organic Cotton Stripe T-Shirt or the Linen Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt, or any other number of print tops.
This print is soft and pretty and I love the shape most of all. The Floral Block Print Top’s hem detail, fabulous worn out but of course you can tuck it in because it’s slim through the body, so it’s doing everything.
Keep it simple with colour blocking, I love the idea of dark up top with the Linen Shell Top and keeping it really light and neutral on the bottom with flax Yarn Dyed Stretch Linen Pull On Shorts. And of course the summer staple must-have, the classic white t-shirt. The Linen Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt is such a good version of a white t-shirt, the v-neck is perfect, it’s a great cut, I love the cap sleeve and linen slub is your friend because it drapes and hangs so beautifully rather than clinging in all the wrong spots.
You’re set for summer now with our fabulous vacation edit, our great mix of basics that are super easy to wear in the warm weather, but also some really special highlight pieces that are going to have you looking good and feeling great over the holiday season.
