What I Wore (Island Editon).

What I Wore (Island Editon).

I spent last weekend at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week.

I swam, I snorkelled, I paddle boarded and I wore a jumpsuit. In May I interviewed the amazing Carla Zampatti and she opened the door wearing a black jumpsuit, a blue marabou bolero jacket and flat velevet slippers – effortlessly chic (always is). She told me that jumpsuits were her wardrobe staple – she owns about fifty – and totally sold me on their versatility.

I left her house, drove straight to the store and bought the one she was wearing. It came into its own at Qualia Resort – it felt so appropriate.

Black for the beach. You need one in your wardrobe.  CLICK TO BUY  CARLA’S NEW SEASON STYLE (the Carla Zampatti jumpsuit I’m wearing is no longer available).

Cuff is Tiffany, necklace is vintage Pucci and the sandals are old, old Prada.

Hot Buys.

CLICK TO BUY: 1. Michael Michael Kors Strapless Stretch-Jersey Jumpsuit from Net-a-Porter, £141.67; 2. Blue Juice Khloe Jumpsuit from Birdsnest, $89.95.

The Make-Up.

I am at my best in the warm weather with a touch of sun and salt in my hair. It’s when I feel my most confident and happy. Nicole Thompson from MAC did my make-up, she has a lovely light touch = clean skin, flush cheeks and a touch on the eye. She also used a dab of Strobe Cream on my shoulders and collar bones to add some gleam – favourite new trick. I bought the bronzer and gloss she used because they were genius, glowy little things.

My hair is still a little bit damp. I didn’t wash the sea water out – just let it air dry and whacked a couple of bobby pins in the back.

Hot Buys.

CLICK TO BUY: MAC Lustreglass in Love Nectar, $35; Iridescent Loose Powder in Golden Bronze, $45.

    No I am pretty sure it is because I really suck at putting together casual outfits. They are hard!
