White Summer Maxi Dress

How sweet is this dress! I ordered it for my vacation but unfortunately, it didn't arrive on time. As expected, the dress is a bit sheer but would work fine as a beach cover-up. For everyday wear, I have this slip underneath. Other than that, I really like the way it flows and adore the flutter sleeves.

Striped Shorts :: Red Chanel WOC

OldNavyChambrayShirt_SydneysFashionDiary  

Trying to get some more use out of my summer clothes before putting them away. These shorts are my new addition and I can't get enough of them. For under $25, I really am impressed with the quality. I ordered a size small and they run a tad loose. I washed them twice already and they shrunk just a bit. These shorts are unlined but the material is completely opaque so no worries about seeing through. Paring the shorts with my beloved chambray shirt and my gorgeous WOC for a pop of color.

Chanel Coco Handle :: Updated Details

Pin It
This blog got a lot of traffic this past few weeks from people who were searching for more information regarding the Chanel coco handle bag. Chanel released the same bag in June with a couple of updated details. I thought I'd do a quick post to point out those changes just in case you're interested.

ChanelCocoHandle2016_SydneysFashionDiary

1. The shoulder strap is now removable: This is an excellent feature! Say if you won't want to use the shoulder strap, you can remove it entirely. The bag looks even more streamline, is versatile and chic like their original Kelly bag

2. I personally haven't seen the new version in person but heard the new caviar leather is more sturdy and durable. My SA said the leather is a bit shiner and less dull. The previous version is made out of soft caviar leather. Mine had a bit of slouch in places even though it was brand new (definitely one of its downsides).

Even though I only had it for a short period of time, I truly enjoyed the bag (full review here). With these updates, I personally think the coco handle is a phenomenal bag. I would highly recommend it if you're in the market for a Chanel bag.

Beach Maxi Dress

Pin It
Forever 21 Maxi Dress

Besides rompers, maxi dresses are also my go-to summer uniform. I picked up this dress from Forever 21 last month and am impressed with the quality. It's airy but well made, perfect for a beach vacation. This exact dress is no longer available but you can find a ton of options here. Looking at these photos makes me miss the beach so much. Can't believe my kids are going back to school today. Summer definitely flew by in the blink of an eye! Outfit details: Forever 21 contemporary maxi dress | Tom Ford sunglasses

Mom-Friendly Yet Stylish One Piece Swimsuit

Pin It
 

As mentioned in this post, finding the perfect flattering swimsuit seems like a daunting task. I literally spent months searching for the perfect one before my trip to the Dominican Republic. Luckily, I found not one but two suits that I am so in love with. I talked about the first one here. This one piece from Becca is my second one. The price tag is a little more than I'd like to spend but I knew I had found the perfect suit when I put it on. Outfit details: Becca swimsuit *size XS* | Quay sunglasses | Forever 21 hat | Kenneth Jay Lane pearl earring

Mom-Friendly Yet Stylish One Piece Swimsuit

A few things I love about this suit:
- It's very classy looking. Going on a vacation with my family, I want plenty of coverage while running around with my kids. The plunging neckline and lace detailing expose enough skin but still is modest.
- The bra coverage isn't very much but it has sewn-in pockets that you can insert extra swim pads. I use these and they're perfect. Those water pads provide a bit of support and volume but not too much.
- My favorite feature of this suit is the adjustable straps (not only the back straps but also the shoulder straps). It really is a nice feature. I was able to adjust all straps until the fit is right. I do think this suit runs small and works well with petite/small chested ladies.
- This suit is available in several gorgeous shades. If burgundy isn't your color, it also comes in black, white, red and a gorgeous sapphire blue

Striped Rompers

StripedRompers_SydneysFashionDiary
There is no secret that I love rompers. I wear some variable of a romper every weekend. This striped version is the latest addition to my ever growing love for rompers. I like the button detail down the front. They make the rompers look more "grown-up". The 2 front pockets add a nice touch to the overall look. If you're in between sizes, I would size down. I am wearing a size small here but the XS would have been a better fit (wasn't available a few weeks ago). Have a great Monday, everyone!

I've been featuring a few ways to wear this dress in the summer. Today, I'll be showing you how to style the dress when it gets a bit cooler outside. If you're a long time follower of this blog then you know how much I love my denim jacket. It's almost 4 years old and I still wear it year round. This outfit is what I called the perfect weekend uniform. Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see how I style this dress for cold weather (last post I promise).

Continuing the week with another styling post. This work-appropriate look is probably one of my favorites. The combination of brown and navy goes perfectly well with my cobalt blue skirt. To keep the rest of the look relatively neutral, I paired the outfit with my beloved leather mules. Check back tomorrow to see how I style this plaid dress for early Fall.

Plaid Shirtdress :: Summer To Fall (Look # 2)

PlaidForSummer_SydneysFashionDiary
For the second look (see the first look here), I wore this plaid dress as a shirt. I love the idea of switching up by knotting the shirt. It gives off the perfect casual and retro look. I wore this outfit to a picnic at the lake with my family. This dress can also work as a cover-up. Talk about versatility! I forgot to mention yesterday that this dress has tab sleeves which is a nice added bonus. Although, I prefer rolled up shirt sleeves to be somewhat messy. Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see how I style this dress for work. Outfit details: BBB plaid dress | AE midi shorts | Quay sunglasses | Target sandals
