Mmmmm… spring! My favourite season. The sun is shining, the flowers are back in business and life suddenly feels ‘fresh’ – just as one of my all-time favourite fashion houses does season after season with Alessandro Michele at the helm (who can say no to all that glitter?).
I love how Michele is putting his own modern stamp on Gucci. Case in point: his wildly theatrical collections which immediately garnered a cult following and prove that you really can mix the eccentric with the every day.
But what has me MOST excited about Michele’s work for Gucci right now is his recent venture into the world of watches.
As I’ve mentioned before, I suffer from ‘chronic lateness’, but I’m committed to turning that around and I’ve decided his new watch is the perfect accessory to help me do it.
Why? Watches are a timeless (lol) investment – kinda like a stylish BFF. They go everywhere with you, they’re super reliable and they look great on your arm.
The right watch will also complement any outfit – whether it’s adding the WOW factor to your basic jeans-and-tee combo, or dressing-down the drama of this Gucci outfit.
I’ve been hyper-aware of my time at the moment – mainly because it keeps getting away from me! Anyone who works in the W-W-W (‘world wide web’, don’t ya know?) will tell you that digital never sleeps. With all the long days and sleepless nights I’ve had recently, I’m learning that investing in the right ‘tools’ (i.e. wardrobe items) will save you time and help you feel like you’ve got it all together.
So to celebrate spring, Alessandro Michele and my newfound wardrobe wisdom, I sauntered on down to Bondi Beach (hometown glory!), in this Gucci outfit (as you do) that’s fit for a princess, with their sparkly new timepiece to match.
Being punctual has never looked so pretty!
