Country Style - - YOUR PAGE -

You and your part­ner, chef Dar­ren Robert­son of Three Blue Ducks, split your time be­tween By­ron Bay and Syd­ney... Yes, we base our­selves in By­ron and go back to Syd­ney around once a month for mine and Dar­ren’s var­i­ous com­mit­ments. De­scribe your per­sonal style. I’m a bit of a chameleon, depend­ing on where I am. I like pieces that are re­laxed, clas­sic, beachy and a lit­tle boho so my By­ron Bay wardrobe is filled with a lot of white and neu­trals, in cot­ton, linen and nat­u­ral fi­bres. I also like to sup­port lo­cal la­bels like Spell, St Agni and the Bare Road, and I live in First Born knits. When I’m in the city in work mode, I en­joy frock­ing up. Any other favourite brands? Zim­mer­mann and Ma­gali Pas­cal for dresses and tops that can take me from day to evening. Bas­sike and Acne for T-shirts. Scan­lan Theodore, Camilla and Marc, and Dion Lee for clas­sic, fash­ion-for­ward pieces. I also love my Cur­rent/el­liott boyfriend jeans. How has your style changed over the years? It has def­i­nitely be­come a lot more re­laxed since be­com­ing a mum to Archie; I used to live in heels but now they are a nov­elty for spe­cial events. I wear a lot of linen jump­suits from Yoli and Otis, boyfriend jeans and Bas­sike T-shirts. Sur­pris­ingly, it hasn’t stopped me wear­ing white! I have a lot of white dresses! How do your work and week­end uni­forms dif­fer? The weather and feel of my Syd­ney work-life and By­ron life are quite dif­fer­ent... I keep the travel uni­form sim­ple with jeans, a T-shirt, plain blazer or long cardi­gan and brogues. Once I’m in the city, I dress up for work, but when I’m in By­ron I’m back to bare feet, Spell dresses and Lack of Colour straw hats. What’s on your wish list go­ing into win­ter? First Born knitwear, Hunter boots, grey suede over-the-knee boots, a fe­dora hat, cash­mere wrap and an over-sized leather bag. Do you have a go-to fra­grance? I stopped wear­ing per­fume when I fell preg­nant be­cause my nose was so sen­si­tive. Now I grav­i­tate more to­wards nat­u­ral scents and oils such as rose. What would we find in your beauty case? Co­conut oil is such a great sta­ple for nour­ish­ing my hair, skin and lips, es­pe­cially in win­ter. I like to fill in my brows with my Eye of Horus brow pen and use a MAC con­cealer. For work, my foun­da­tion is Ar­mani Lu­mi­nous Silk, and NARS for bronzer and blush. Do you carry a par­tic­u­lar hand­bag? My straw bag, which I got from Flow­ers at The Farm. I get so many com­ments on it! It dou­bles as a baby and farmer’s mar­ket bag. What’s the best style ad­vice you’ve re­ceived? Buy once, buy well. I much pre­fer to spend a lit­tle more on some­thing that’s go­ing to go the dis­tance. A lot of fast fash­ion wor­ries me be­cause of the ethics of how it’s been made. > Mag­dalena’s book, Happy and Whole (Plum, $39.99), is out now. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit mag­dale­
