SEPT 17, 2021

Lately the sun has been out and shining its beautiful rays upon us. It has us feeling bright, cheerful and ready for those summer months to hurry up and get here. ☀️

As we creep closer to the October long weekend and daylight savings (sorry Qld) we can't help the desire to embrace all things bright and colourful. 🌺

As we prepare to hopefully, finally, please let us out of lockdown, we are obsessing over the these Top 10 Picks of the Week which will see us through to our freedom day and beyond.

Now, let's review.

Number 10.

Our first fave is the Alia Dress in Off White, we love this because it is flawless in off white. It is short and sweet but not too short, meaning you can show off just the right amount of leg. It covers the arms with an adjustable sleeve, that means you can make it long or short, you choose. We have tried it ourselves of course and it feels so flattering on. You can wear it loose and comfy with your fave sneakers or with a belt for a cinched in look like our gorgeous Taryn above. We love it because it hides the things you want and is easy to slip on while still feeling like a complete outfit.

Worn with a belt also adds some figure flattering curves while still allowing room for you to demolish a whole charcuterie board and bottle of Rose, if the mood strikes.
One look at the empty biscuits and cheese aisles in my local woollies tells me we are all on the same page about a weekend cheese plate.

Number 9.

Next up we have the Update You Midi Dress in Pink Swirl. This print is everything! With Spring arriving we are obsessed with colour and this cute and quirky swirly number gives us life.
It is a new but old spin on a spring print and we are so here for it.

The print isn’t the only thing we love about this dress. It’s full length and strappy shoulders means you can stay cool during the 20+ degree days we have right now but still remain a little protected from the wind and afternoon chill.
With this one, you won’t get caught out at 4pm feeling the brisk air as the sun fades away because those legs are still covered baby.

Adding to that, I don’t think any of us are 100% ready to show off our pitch white pins of winter until we get some more rays on them (or at least some Bondi Sands), this buys you some time for that while still looking gorgeous.

There is so much to love with our Update You Midi. The pastel pink and orange tones go so well together and the slinky silhouette with slight cut out sides is super sexy. Cute and sexy all in the one look, you can’t ask for more.

Number 8.

Our next fave is this super cute midi skirt. Introducing our Dallace Midi Skirt in Lilac Oasis.
With travel bans everywhere, this is the tropically floral number we all need in our lives. Hand me a pina-colada, take away the kids and let's relax in the sun with this beauty.
I can hear the waves crashing now and relaxation taking over.

While we continue to daydream about our next island getaway (Gladys, please let us out soon), why not bring a little island oasis in soothing lilac to your day-to-day. This muted, purple toned wonder feels so fun and the floral print is really unique.

We love this skirt because it just makes us feel calm and inspired when we pop it on. Summer is around the corner and this skirt has us feeling warm and summery already.

Also available in Blue Oasis and Purple Oasis.

Number 7.

Next up is a different spin on our usual maxi. This lightweight blue checkered picnic inspired dress is perfect for you and 5 fully vaccinated friends (cheers Gladys) to visit the park and get some sun. Welcome to the Clementine Maxi Dress in Blue Check.

Move over spring florals, this classic checkered print just screams Spring. Wear it all season long and into the next, we can even see this being worn on a sunny Christmas Day 2021 with the family. For a casual look pair it with your fave sandals or slides and a denim jacket or for something a bit fancier, add your favourite wedge.

Some features we love. The adjustable back tie means this dress can be fitted to any bust size or shape - completely customisable by you. The full skirt also feels super fun to swirl around in and just enjoy the moment.

This spring maxi is a must-have this season. It’s like bringing a fun spring picnic into your wardrobe and we reckon that it will bring you a smile whenever you pop it on.

And how gorgeous is our Taryn in it? Swoon 💙🦋

Also available in Scarlet.

Number 6.

In number 6 we have a dress with a colour that just screams YASSSSS, not just because it is green but because it is the PERFECT brilliantly bright green. That is part of the reason why this dress finds itself in number 6 of our Top 10 Faves of this week.

Meet our Charles Cut Out Midi Dress in Green - she is one of a kind.

The vibrancy of this dress is giving us all the feels. Colour pops are oh so popular right now and we know why, because it can't help but make us smile and we all need a little of that at the moment.

With its cross over front and cut out sides, it has just enough detail to make the dress sing. With a relaxed elastic waist and drawstring front, you can tie it as you please, super cinched or as free as you feel. The sleeves are the perfect length that cover just enough in this trans-seasonal weather, hot a lot of the time but sometimes a little brisk, and the full skirt makes it perfect for almost any activity. You can dress it up for a night out or pair it back and chase after the kids on the weekend, you won't be flashing anyone. 😉

Wherever you wish to wear this dress and however you wish to style it, it’s going to work for you. The perfect balance of effortless beauty and total sophistication, you can dress it up or down and it’ll be perfect. It's also step away from most of our usual colour palettes and we can all do with some vibrant colour in our day to day. That’s a win win win in our books.

Number 5.

Staying in a happy mood, we have our Ollie Maxi two piece in Olive. These ones do come separately (Taryn is rocking the Ollie Maxi above with a cute white off-the-shoulder ensemble) so you can mix and match your top and bottom sizes (one of the reasons it’s in our top picks).
You can find them under Ollie Blouse and Ollie Maxi Skirt.

One reason we love these pieces is the colour. This olive green tone is so on-trend at the moment and is the perfect upgrade to a neutral colour palette. It has us in the mood for a Saturday brunch with the girls sipping mimosas at somewhere like the Pavillion or the Grounds. (Note to Self: Go to the Pavillion and The Grounds when this is all over.)
That said, if it’s not your fave, we also have it in Coral - the perfect pinky hue.

Another reason we are obsessed with this two-piece combo is not just the size mix and match but the styling mix and matching. With these two-pieces, some accessories and a few other staples from your wardrobe, you can make so many outfits, just like Taryn above.
Super easy to do, you can create endless casual spring looks.

Our Ollie duo are the outfit pieces that keep on giving and that’s why they are 2-for in our top faves this week.

Number 4.

We are past the half-way point now and our number 4 spot goes to our most classicly spring look yet. This is our Pia Blouse in Pink Flamingo.

This pink toned beauty is everything we think Spring to be. Like cherry blossoms in a spring Tokyo, this blouse is the blush boho inspired print we have been waiting for. And we love a boho print.

Other reasons we love this pick is its floaty unencumbered shape and it's lightly puffed sleeves. It is super easy to pop on and away you go. Sometimes you just want something that doesn't hug every curve, but just sits effortlessly on the body. This is your style.

The V neck with ties and faux buttons add a little extra detail to the look and the warm orange tones mixed with the pink (just like in our Number 9 pick, I sense a trend) is the colour combo we never knew we loved so much.

Easy to wear but still fash-un our Pia Blouse is everything we need this Spring. I am Adding to Cart right now and you should too, I have a feeling it won’t last long.

Also available in Blue Flamingo and Mustard Spot.

Number 3.

We are getting to the pointy end now with our Number 3 spot. This versatile piece is part shirt part cape with its long back and buttoned up or unbuttoned options. Introducing the Vicia Shirt in the most epic pink - Magenta.

We love this one because she is perfect for every season and every occasion. Dressed up for a Dinner Date or Cosmos with your girls, or dressed down for a casual funday Sunday, it is the perfect add-on. Shirts, are the underrated wardrobe staple you need. Truth.

Oversized button up shirts are not just for stealing from your guys wardrobe. They can be a total style statement in different colours, cuts, sleeves and cuffs. This one in particular has a super flattering extended cuff which gives it a feminine feel and creates a slender silhouette for your arm. You can also roll it up to any length just like Taryn to make it the look you want.

In the most brilliant hot pink tone this one is a showstopper and styled the right way it can take you from day to night.
With so many ways to wear it, tucked, french tucked, tied in the front, buttoned or unbuttoned, on the shoulders or off. You can have so much fun finding new ways to wear and pair this shirt with your whole wardrobe.

Perfect for every age, our Vicia Shirt is a classic that can be something you love today and in the years to come. Nothing wasted. There's no reason you shouldn't be hitting that Add to Cart right now. Go, go, go!

Number 2.

We are almost there everyone. In the runner up spot by the smallest margin is our Cambelle Maxi Dress in Off White. She is pretty close to a bright white and she is perfect. We all LOVE LOVE LOVE a white dress, your onsite searches tell us so, and this one is a superstar.

Somehow the Cambelle in its single white tone feels simple and elegant but still has so much detail. From the puffed sleeves, empire waist and v-neckline to the full skirt with slightly ruched hem, (*chefs kiss*) this gorgeous maxi epitomises everything that is G&H and maybe that's why we love it so much; effortless, chic, classic. It’s a style we all need in our wardrobe because classic never goes out of fashion.

The Cambelle gets our second to top pick this week because it is just levelling up our look. From cardis and sweats and all things cosy, the Cambelle is bringing subtle structure to our weekly outfit roster and we are ready for it. Its length has the perfect end point, not dragging on the ground, showing a little bit of ankle and your cute shoes. This piece can take you from the work week to cocktails in no time at all. It feels luxe and with its little puffed shoulders and fitted bodice blending out to a full skirt, it gives the perfect silhouette.

Add a belt like our beautiful Taryn above for a little extra statement or keep it paired back, it's up to you.

If you're looking for a new white dress, this is your gal.

Number 1.

Taking out our NUMBER 1 spot for our absolute FAVE FAVE FAVE piece of the week is…drumroll please…the Fire and Desire Knit duo in Cobalt.
Even the name is giving us all the feels. Fire and Desire, yes please. 🔥

Winter may be over but that doesn't mean we need to rid our wardrobe of all knits. Coming in hot this season for the latest trend is cute knit outfits ready for summer and this is no exception.

The cobalt mixed with the amber and pink tones we've seen throughout our top 10, speaks to us. The contrast with the black looks fab and calls to another trend of the season which is retro prints.

Just like our previous duo, in Number 5, the Fire and Desire crop and skirt come separately so you can mix and match your size. Which is a total #win. (Speaking for all big busted ladies out there with smaller waists.)

This set is perfect for your next outing, whenever that may be. It is a TOTAL style statement we promise all eyes will be on you, how could they not?

If your next event feels way too far away, don't worry, this stunner needs to be seen and be worn, so we won't judge you if you just pop it on and head to Coles.
13 weeks in, it doesn't matter anymore ladies, wear it wherever you go.

Reasons we love this duo that aren't just because it's so WOW 😲. Knits are super forgiving to any lumps or bumps your have because the weave, while figure hugging, is thicker by nature and so glosses over things far better than most other materials. It's also a slightly loose knit meaning it covers everything up but allows the breeze to still flow on through which is perfect for these hotter days we are getting. You can wear it with the matching crop or if that's not your thing, partner it with a white tee or button up shirt for a slightly more covered look.

And with that, there's nothing else for us to say. She's a Best Seller in the making. You better hurry before she’s gone, as we suspect there will be lots of ladies wanting this duo.

And that’s it for the week. What did you think of our Top 10 Picks? Were they the same as yours? What would you like us to include more of next or see us try on? We are listening.

Until next week, we hope you love all our new arrivals this week. We released hundreds of new styles just for you so go check them out now and enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
