One of my biggest fashion dilemmas is keeping things casual. It’s not something I do really well, ’cause I always seem to end up dressing up a little more than needed. For instance, take that time last year when my mum decided to celebrate her birthday at Chandon, a winery less than an hour away from Melbourne. The best laid-back look I could come up with involved a peplum top with beaded Peter Pan collar that was once featured on “The Carrie Diaries” TV series. Seriously.
So this year one of my resolutions is to try and expand my wardrobe with more of the basics, focusing on buying separates instead of dresses because they are more versatile. Fingers crossed.
