coming of age.


Ellery blazer, Tibi cami, ASOS shorts, Chloe boots.


Ever since I made the transition from full time study to full time work, I've had to serious rethink my wardrobe. Gone are the days where I could wake up and pull on a boyfriend tee, ripped denim shorts and Supergas and rush off to uni. I'm supposedly all grown up now and officially have to look (and act) the part of a nine-to-fiver. Not that there weren't already elements of an office-centric collection in the making - I have my many Jac+ Jack/ J Crew button up shirts but I was missing a key component of any working woman's wardrobe. A blazer. But I didn't settle for your standard black blazer. I went all out in Ellery working in some dark florals as a subtle nod to my own style. Can I just say that Ellery makes the most incredible blazers. They're sleek, chic and tailored to perfection. And if you were wondering, no I didn't pay full price - I waited patiently for end of season sales. Winning.

  1. I'm so jealous you get to wear printed blazers to work. You look amazing in that mostly all-black ensemble!

  4. Agreed. It isn't your typical work wear but Ellery pieces work! Hard! I'm eyeing off a new blazer myself, something pinstriped and perfectly tailored. Now to wait until mid-season sales.
