T: I work really closely with everyone in the marketing team, lending a hand with whatever project is in the works at the time. Whether that’s assisting on a shoot, chatting with influencers or organising content for social media – I’m working on something different every day.
P: That I’m responsible for any typos :/
How does Auguste connect with your personal style?
T: I love a neutral wardrobe so you’ll usually find me in plenty of white and as much linen as possible. From time to time I love mixing it up with a subtle floral, which Auguste is perfect for.
P: By bringing some much-needed florals to my closet. I tend to gravitate toward more natural tones or solid colours, so it’s nice to pull on a patterned piece here and there.
What in your closet brings you the most joy?
T: At the moment I love wearing my (crazy cosy) sherpa coat. I never thought it would be cold enough to wear it in Byron but I’m definitely taking advantage of these cooler winter days!
P: A vintage Parisian silk blouse that’s easily the most colourful thing I own.
We’re at your favourite spot in Byron Bay. What makes it so special?
T: Where else can you drink coffee, visit piglets and walk through sunflowers all in the one place? I love bringing a picnic rug and spending Saturday on the grass.
P: Hands down, The Farm has the best baked goods in the Byron area – at the very least, the best on my route to the office. Most Saturdays my husband and I stop by early in the morning to share a croissant and jam donut and to visit all the animals. The Scottish highland cows are my favourite.
One thing you love about working in Byron…
T: Working in Byron means there’s a massive focus on work-life balance. It’s such a blessing to be able to stop in at the beach on your drive home from the office.
P: So many things. The work-life balance, getting to the beach before work, the lack of traffic lights… I could go on.
What can’t you get enough of right now?
T: Runs along Suffolk Beach as the sun is rising. I’ve seen it a thousand times and still get excited!
P: The sunsets. It’s my first winter living here and the setting skies are so consistently beautiful. I’m usually in a rush to get home so I can walk to the beach and catch the pink hues before the sun retires for the night.
What’s your go-to office tune?
T: The Ruben’s radio has made a bit of a feature this week and of course ‘90s for Friday afternoons.
P: Whatever Tori is streaming!
When it comes to getting dressed/fashion, what matters to you?
T: Local labels + slow fashion.
P: That I really love what I put on and will continue to for a long time to come. I’m trying to have a more minimal wardrobe, so I only choose pieces that really resonate with me.
What’s your favourite Auguste piece right now?
T: There are some gorgeous midi dresses arriving for Spring that I’m really excited about!
P: Probably the Manhattan pieces. It’s the texture of the cotton that gets me.
