Dion Lee Top / Lilya Skirt / Jolie & Deen Coat / Miu Miu Heels / Vintage Bag

Here are a few of my favourite new purchases mixed in with some of my most beloved staple pieces and some afternoon sunlight. This silk top by Dion Lee is not just your normal collared top, with its simple yet structured cut out shoulder detail reflecting exactly what Dion is famous for. Unexpected yet completely versatile and caters to not just one particular style. Here I’ve taken a softer approach by styling it with a polka dot skirt, ankle socks, my Miu Miu loafers and my absolute favourite new coat I picked up in a little store called Jolie & Deen on Chapel Street in Melbourne.

When it comes to coats the one tip of advice I can give you is never hesitate when you see a beautiful one. They’re the one investment piece that their functionality really exceeds any price you pay, and all of my wool coats have only been around the $200 mark. Functional and completely affordable, two things that are so hard to come by these days.

After searching for the perfect navy coat for years now it’s no surprise I haven’t taken this off since I got my excited little hands on it. I think you know you’re obsessed when you wear it over your pajamas to do the grocery shopping or over your bikini at the beach when it starts to get cold in the late afternoon, which is something I probably shouldn’t have told you…
