This colour palette turns heads. Fact. There’s something about white jeans and an off the shoulder top that’s the epitome of sexy casual. My favourite part of this look is the rose gold accents and pearls which really pair back well with the matte satin shine in the top. Layer a tan or ivory coat for winter and you’re good for the night!
Khaki olive is just one of those colours we need to have in our wardrobes. If you’re not a huge colour person like me, but want to introduce some into your outfits you need to invest in khaki. It’s subtle and there’s a reason why it’s the base colour of all army and military uniforms. It’s meant to blend in and it’s not an in your face colour or a colour that goes out of style.
I’ve matched it back with black denim because I didn’t want to be too colourful pairing it with blue or navy denim (lol). I do find that when I wear blue denim it’s always with a white, grey or black top. Not intentional, but kind of intentional. I just like investing in staple colours! Sue me
All white is one of my fave looks to wear ever. I particularly love mixing materials to add that extra element of interest such as this silk shirt with a denim skirt & perspex heels. The slightly higher boot trend has really taken off this season. Its higher than your regular ankle boot and sits just under your calf. I think it’s going to be even more popular next year as more people get used to it. A lot of these styles of boots are neoprene which is a stretchy wetsuit type of fabric otherwise they’re patent leather or like this PU plastic material. These boots are particularly kick ass because they’re clear with an awesome lace up detail on the side. Subtle and sexy.
I’m in love with the drapey blush-ness of this dress. The side splits and balloon sleeves give the simple tunic style that added detail. I have layered it over a light pink leather look mini skirt so the wind doesn’t blow it between your legs since the fabric is so soft (you know what I mean, right?) as well as giving it that contrast, and hey, I’ll take any warmth I can get… it’s winter after all.
I’m loving all the accessories from the long line necklace to the laser cut out clutch, strappy heels and gemstone chain bracelet. And my hair has had a nice little re-vamp from Barney Martin hair team! It’s creamier and blonder and softer and stronger. I’d definitely recommend their services if you’re on the hunt for a new hairdresser
Undefinably I’m easily obsessed with bikinis and this one is right up there. It’s so unique because it’s very different to your nylon, neoprene and crochet bikini. It’s knitted and basically the Herve Leger of bikinis. It’s that type of bodycon knit you used to wear.
I had to top up my winter skin with this new Bondi Sands liquid told tanner which seems to be a faster drying formula to their other mouses and lotions I’ve tried. So far so good but the colour doesn’t seem to be as deep as the other two. Perhaps with another layer or just being more generous I could have achieved that effect.
Let me know if you’d like me to do a sunless tan review on YouTube of all the brands I’ve tried to help guide you to the best choice for you!
I’m not a huge bohemian style dresser but I have a deep appreciation for lace and it’s intricacy, so when I saw this lace sleeved double breasted blazer I fell in love and yes, had to have it. It’s a beautiful mix of chic style and tailoring. I’ve layered it under a blush double breasted sleeveless coat because #winterishere and wore my blush boots and white jeans just to look like a trendy, walking bag of marshmellows. I highlighted the accents on the coat with rose gold earrings and rings as I try not to mix my metals too much as I like to keep things minimal since the statement jewelry is already alot.
I’m going to go ahead and say it’s totally fine to go out for a pre-coffee drink before actual drinks. Anyone that knows me knows that a few drinks send me straight to nap-ville so I don’t mind a sneaky espresso before I go out hahah.
In this look I’m wearing the gorgeous bustier with sleeves that drape down the arm paired with a high waisted leather look mini skirt. As usual I’m wearing lace up booties and as usual a lot of it (all of it) is black.
I’m not going to lie to you. I didn’t work out before or after these shots. I’ve been stupidly sick due to the unnecessarily huge drop in temperature & my body was a little in shock so I haven’t been able to work out this week unfortunately. I guess they call it winter weight for a reason *sad face*.
Nonetheless, I do LOVE this outfit. I have a few of these Bonds active mesh tanks and I can confirm they’re great for sweating in. The bomber is super light so it’s good to chuck on on your way to the gym and wear until you’re warm enough to show off the tank or bra top! There’s a matching one in the slider bar below which I also love. I’m not an overly colourful colour wearing person at the gym, the occasional colour pop in sneakers or crop top is okay but I am totally down with this monochrome sporty look any day of the week.
Do you prefer wearing brights colours or black, white & grey at the gym?
After I posted this bikini photo on my instagram earlier this year, I saw the reaction it got and I immediately knew that crochet bikinis were and are still a big thing. The ones I am wearing here are actually a custom size made to fit my measurements (ahh-mazing!) as my size isn’t particularly commercial. So if you’re a little bit bigger, or smaller, or completely normal then check out Lost Culture. There’s no way you can’t find a bikini that wouldn’t suit you!
Below are some other crochet bikini options which I also recommend.
Are you going to be adding crochet bikinis to your ‘summer must haves’ list?
I was dog sitting my friend’s dogs for a day… coincidentally coincided with my studio shoot (in my new studio! Yay!) and yes, Woody insisted on being in every. single. damn. shot. Would you also believe that he LOVES licking the coconut oil off of my skin? Just a little tip for your next dog licking skin photoshoot – they love it.
So yeah, it’s the middle of winter and I am not getting out half as much as I usually do because #lazy and so it seemed fitting to stay indoors and shoot my new favourite things including this cute satin playsuit & beanie from Showpo. It would be perfect to wear with over the knee boots and a chunky knit sweater otherwise if you’re blessed to be in the northern hemisphere just slide into a pair of strappy sandals or sneakers and roll out!
