We’ve put our new season online hunting to good use and narrowed-down our top three pieces that are getting us excited for the start of spring...
From statement gingham skirts to sporty slides and feminine silhouettes, there’s never been a better time to invest in your hot-weather wardrobe. Ready to take a peek inside the team’s shopping carts?

1. Byron Attire
Anyone else find themselves scrolling through Instagram and wanting to wear linen and slides? We can thank the rise of independent labels based in Byron Bay for this (hello Rowie, Yoli & Otis, Little Winnie and more). While I’m not a 24/7 linen wearer, I will be adding a few new dresses to my wardrobe this season. First up: this luxurious linen-rayon blend from Rowie.
SHOP: Rowie dress, $199
2. Slides, slides and more slides
Sorry, here I go again. Another Byron Bay-based label. You’ll find a seriously amazing edit of footwear (and more, but let’s stick to shoes, for now, shall we?) at St Agni. My favourite? Sorry, I don’t do favourites, but I do love the Hennie slide which is made from rattan.
SHOP: St Agni slides, $149
3. Shirts With Personality
Confession: I have a rather huge addiction to Mango. They do all the best trends and work with my childcare-is-sending-me-broke budget. I wear shirts and jeans for most of the week so will often pick up new styles from Mango. Currently on the list is this fun checked style with floral embroidery (florals get me every single time).
SHOP: Mango blouse, $69.95

1. Gingham Skirt
Have we had enough gingham yet? No way! I love this grown-up take on the check, with a modern cut and cannot get enough of midi-length skirts. An investment piece that will be on high rotation from spring through to summer and will transition into the cooler months with sweaters too. I’ll wear with fresh a white tee (when my two-year-old isn’t around) and trainers, and dress up with a black top and gold accents for the evening. I am completely undeterred by my husband mentioning ‘tablecloth’…
SHOP: Simone Rocha skirt, $572
2. Floral Top
Ganni is one of the hottest labels right now, and I adore everything from the Danish brand. Seeing as I couldn’t get that yellow Faucher sweater that Camille Charrière wore so brilliantly, I’ll choose this sweet and flattering top. And because you really can’t get enough printed florals in Spring time, I’ll mix it up with the matching skirt, white jeans, and denim skirts. Scandi cool is perfect for Sydney Spring…
SHOP: Ganni blouse, $162
3. Striped Tee
Ok I admit, this may be the 50th striped tee in my wardrobe, but no Spring is complete without a nod to nautical chic and Summer days ahead. This beauty has a relaxed shape and French vibe, will work with any denim and be my go-to for off-duty mama style.

1. Black Slides
I’ve lived in Birkenstocks for longer than I care to admit, so it’s definitely time to up my everyday-sandal game this spring. I love that these quilted leather slides can look casual when teamed with denim, but also add a sporty edge to this season’s obsession with all things floral and feminine. Isabel Marant shoes are always as comfortable as they are stylish, so these really are a practical investment.
2. Wrap Dress
I’m planning to live in easy, throw-on dresses this Summer. Not only do they look chic, but they make getting dressed in the morning with little people around so much easier! The wrap silhouette, soft lilac print and ruffle detailing on this Réalisation Par dress all make for a seriously flattering and feminine dress. I’ll take two, thanks.
It would be fair to say that I’m taking some serious style cues from my three-year-old daughter this season. This blousy cotton top with bow detail would be a wardrobe lifesaver once the weather heats up. Teamed with denim shorts, tan sandals and a basket bag, the look is simple yet undeniably stylish in a French-influencer-you’re-obsessed-with-kinda-way.
