The mercury is rising, the days are getting longer, and the scent of jasmine is in the air. Spring is one of my favourite times of year in Melbourne, and with the Spring Racing Carnival fast approaching, I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite looks from Country Road’s latest CR. CAPSULE collection.
I’m loving a neutral colour palette at the moment, with warm earthy tones and pastel blues. The limited edition collection is effortless and oh-so-feminine with asymmetric silk draping, soft ruffles, and toffee stripes. Add a straw boater and a perspex box clutch for a little playfulness and you’re all set!

There’s also nothing better than a man in a well tailored suit. Lightly structured cotton blazers and pants can be worn together or as separates for a more relaxed look, depending on the race day. Country Road’s latest collaboration with Liberty of London is such an exciting one, with their iconic floral print seen across mens’ shirts and accessories. I think I’ll be stealing Sammy’s shirt…
