Sometimes, the clothes I have in my capsule wardrobe aren’t going to cut it when it comes to creating an outfit for a special occasion. As a working mum of two little ones, such occasions aren’t a regular part of my calendar, so when they do come around I want to wear something that’s not part of my everyday wardrobe.

Autumn has well and truly arrived in Sydney, and I have to say I’m enjoying the reprieve from the humidity.
Out of all the items in my essentials capsule, I think the white button down shirt is my absolute favourite. This is a big call, coming from someone who would live in jeans if I had the chance, but nothing beats the simplicity and versatility of this classic piece of clothing.
