The Look: Burgundy Bliss

 
Bringing the Autumnal burgundy trend to the Australian tropics...

Shirt Dress: She In (Get It Here)
Skirt: The Fifth Label
Scarf: Banarsi Designs (Get It Here)
Clutch: Tony Bianco
Heels: New Look
Sunglasses: Tory Burch (Get It Here)



As most of my readers are throwing on that extra fluffy jumper and cosy-ing up by the fire, I'm struggling not to sweat my makeup off in a bumbling heap. You will probably laugh at me because I literally live in paradise and yes; I LOVE IT, but sometimes, I think that my English blood can't handle 36 degree heat and 90% humidity. I'd like to see Queen Lizzie try... **Phillip: Get me in the air-con!**

With feeds upon feeds of lush Autumnal hues growing into a rather large mound on my Pinterest board, I thought I'd have a go at making the on-trend berry tone seasonal appropriate for the hot Aussie weather. 

As soon as I saw this She In* shirt dress, I had to have it! Alongside being one of this seasons most coveted colours, I find the wrap shape incredibly flattering. Pear tones, take note: if you wanna add a bit of volume to your, erm..ladies, this one's for you!

As the dress is quite sheer, I layered it over my white, mesh midi skirt for a bit of a texture clash. The peek-a-boo effect of the white, sporty fabric truly takes the berry-hued dress into Summer territory. 

And it can't be truly my style unless there's a little touch of seventies boho thrown in. Cue this lush silk print scarf from Banarsi Designs. I worn tied minimally around the neck and cascading down the back for that extra flow-y effect.

I added my good old Tory's and my fave black clutch and heel combo. They are my fail-safe, go-to trio; the Ron, Harry and Hermione of my wardrobe.

On another note, I sincerely apologize for my lack of tan in these photos; I honestly look like Edward Cullen's long lost sis. Just more evidence that I've truly transitioned from a tan-o-holic backpacker to a true local. That hole in the O-Zone layer in darn scary: Pass me the St Tropez, pronto!

Are you loving burgundy?

  3. Oh I'm forever in love with burgundy! It's such a fantastically rich tone. Also - humidity there is no joke! I remember getting off the plane there and being hit in the face with how hot/humid it was. haha

  18. Hello beautiful Rachel! I love maxi dresses and the burgundy one you are wearing is to die for and I want it! You look gorgeous in all the pictures (you are a professional model!) and the tropical background in all the photos reminds me of the island I grew up. I don't miss the humidity but I definitively miss everything else. Living in FL is kind of the same.... we get a lot of hot, humid days but not the same. And only you know how to embrace and wear the fall fashion trends during the warm seasons You rock girl! Have an amazing weekend! XOXO, Jeannette

  23. I like the pretty burgundy colour, empire waist and lapels of your She In Shirt-Dress. I also like the wide white mesh of your The Fifth Label skirt. The burgundy She In dress contrasts with and complements the white skirt, colourful Banarsi Designs scarf and your pretty hair beautifully.

  48. Oh yes, I do love burgundy! And I was wondering how the people living on the Southern Hemisphere deal with trends: Do you pin them for your autumn or are you really up to date and wear the new spring collections already we pin for next year?

  70. Babin' in burgundy Rachel! You look so blissfully beaut and rock the colour so damn hard. Forever loving your seventies-boho vibes and all the on-point hues they rock. Don't worry about looking anything near Edward Cullen's sister; you look glowingly gorgeous and perfectly tanned to me! ;) The location is absolutely stunning, those endless trees and wondrous woods certainly bare a resemblance to the transfixing magic in the Twilight movies though. Absolutely in awe of you and your gorgeous self as always <3
