I’m just gonna put it out there… I’m a bit bikini obsessed. I love a good quality bikini and that includes the perfect little black one piece bikini that should be staple in everyone’s beach wardrobe. I’m going to talk you through your options and what’s best for your bust shape.
Smaller chest: Your traditionally trained stylist with tell you to go for something with ruffles or bows or something that has embellishment on the chest to accentuate your bust. To me that’s fine, but personally I am a much more minimal bikini wearer and I don’t ever wear bows or frills on anything. I would embrace not having a ridiculous amount of cleavage and opt for a super low cut bikini like this one which has padding in it. The beauty of not having out there cleavage means you can get away with this style without looking slutty. Another alternative is a style with a alot of panel detailing on the bust. Super fashion forward.
Bigger Chest: I’d say I fall into this category (being a DD) and although I love the high neck style it actually doesn’t make your chest look smaller or flatter your bust, but in fact tends to make it look bigger with more of a monoboob vibe. Unless that’s the look you’re going for then I’d suggest a low cut style, but not too low cut (because from experience your boobs fall right out!). I love backless styles and if you don’t feel like you need the ‘support’ then give this style a go but there are also plenty of one-piece styles that have the in-built bra with a much more conservative back.
Somewhere in between: You’re the babes that can get away with any of the above. Try a balconette style or one of these sexy front zip bikinis which you can adjust to whatever mood you’re in <insert winky face>
I love this swimsuit because not only has it got the cutest stitch and binding detail but it has good support and coverage. I mean, finally a bikini you could actually swim in! I’m wearing a size 8 in the top and 10 in the bottom. Luckily you can buy separates because not every woman is the same in their top and bottom and due to the nature of this design you can’t adjust the straps or ties so the fit is really important!
This was shot on Rottnest Island, a cute little island just off of Western Australia, Perth. I’ll be writing more about that in a later post! I can’t wait to share those pics and stories.
As we were driving around Perth for a very specific desolate and isolated road we found the perfect one right next to a shipping yard, and for some reason there are very cute, pastel coloured shipping containers on the lot. Of course I had to ‘pretend’ to break in being the try-hard law abiding citizen I am. Nonetheless. The reason I have no pants on is because I didn’t have any. We didn’t plan this shoot and I had nothing with me but a bikini, my fave Nike sweater and my Calvin Klein tee but we have to take every photo op available. Perth is weird. It was kind of bikini weather kind of sweater weather. In future I will pack better. Lesson learnt.
As you are all aware I’m a bit of a foodie (that’s an understatement, I’m a huge bloody foodie) and I have every single food delivery app available because I love/ need my options haha. That’s why I’m so excited to share with you at one of the original food delivery services, Menulog, is turning 10!! That’s 10 years delivering food to your door! So you know they know what they’re doing. So to celebrate this I’ve teamed with Menulog to give my readers a $10 voucher off your order CN5SYP for your next Nextflix and Chill night in.
Today I’ve picked up a couple pizzas and even a nutella pizza for good measure from Supreme Pizza for lunch and damnnn it’s tasty!
I’m officially throwing out all of my low-waisted pants. Why was the year 2000 riddled with them?! I get it, Christina looked hot but they’re not actually flattering in any way, shape or form. They cut your body at your widest point (your hips) which just makes your body and legs look short.
The sad truth is that that trend will probably come back around in a couple years but until then I’m going to actually dress for my body type and that’s wearing high rise pants like these ones. Nothing looks better than accentuating the smallest part of your waist and showing off your curves in the right way. I’ve collaborated with Tobi to put this look together. It’s a funky crop top, palazzo pant number which is casual and head turning at the same time.
The ribbed crop with hook and eyelets are an homage to the sporty scene I love to tap into as well as adding a sexy lingerie feel to it with the eyelets. You can wear this crop with denim, a bomber and sneakers for a more casual vibe or these pants with a strapless bodice to dress it up or jersey t-shirt to dress it down.
Also, the tiny wallet clutch is making a lot of appearances. I love that is perfectly fits my iPhone 6S+, keys and cards! I love mini bags, the smaller the better! They’re so cute and so light. I rarely have big bags as I find I always put stuff I don’t actually need in it… spare sneakers in case you want to go running? sure. Candle in case you want to set the mood? Why not. Typewriter? in you go. #classicme
I’ve been seeing these Boda Skins leather jackets all over instagram and had to see if they’re really as good as everyone is talking about. And I’d say they are! The leather is soo soft, unlike my other fave leather jacket which took months to wear in, it’s still stiff but it holds a lot more structure I guess but this one which is made from Nappa sheep skin is so soft and I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on it.
As far as fit goes I wasn’t sure if I should get my true to size (8) or go up as size (10) because I tend to like things oversized sometimes and was told they fit snug but my other leather jacket is on the bigger side with tonnes of room to layer over hoodies and knits so I got true to size. So far I’ve worn it with a tank top under a thin knit and it fits well. It probably wouldn’t work so well under a hoodie, but I figured going into spring I won’t be doing so much layering anyway.
Is the price worth it? One of my first leather jackets was from Zara. It was made from lambskin and was about $250, I still love the design and wore it to death for years but looking back it’s not very warm to be honest. The last one I bought was from Neuw which is about $650 or so, it’s warm with layering, however it’s stiff as a mentioned so not super cosy in that sense. Nonetheless I did wear it about 100x this winter. This one is around $830, so although a bit more expensive than the others I love the details on the shoulder and the cuffs, the leather quality and attention to detail is amazing and it’s made in Turkey so depending on your budget I would definitely recommend this style or brand. My only fault is that the right lapel doesn’t sit down it has a tendency to stick up. Not the end of the world, though.
What’s awesome is that you can choose your hardware colour. My other jackets are gunmetal so I chose rose gold but if you’re looking to buy your first leather jacket I’d recommend a gunmetal hardware, you’ll get more wear out of it and it’s less blingy than silver or gold.
Okay I dunno if I’m overkilling it here with this bomber but I have literally worn it everyday since I’ve got it. It’s sooo warm and kind of goes with everything in my wardrobe right now because it’s reversible so I can wear it as a black bomber or wear it with the print showing. The colour palette of the floral is working so well with my current wardrobe.
Also, if you haven’t yet got yourself a pair of clean, simple white or off-white sneakers for Spring then I think it’s about time you invest. It’s every ‘fashion’ girl’s staple piece, they’re wearing it with jeans, shorts, dresses and skirts. Super versatile! Nine times out of ten I’m more casual than anything so I’m just rocking my Pumas with my fave mom jeans.
Mixing your sporty pieces with your non-sporty pieces (like denim) is what I’m all about right now. Think Hailey Baldwin and Kendall. This bomber is so dope, it’s a neat collab between illustrator Careuax and Puma, it’s fully reversible and I’ve been wearing it way more than I thought I would. It’s super warm too, I’m talking warm like a snow jacket and it’s perfect to layer over your sporty crop top for when you’re heading to the gym or just being a boss.
These mom jeans are great for balancing out the tiny-ness of the crop top, if you were to wear skinny jeans it might look slightly hoochie or maybe it’s just me that probably wouldn’t be able to pull it off. I also find that mom jeans or boyfriend jeans aren’t so tight at the waistline so you generally don’t have to deal with ‘muffin top’ yes all girls have this! even the ‘skinny’ ones. LOL. But make sure you keep the casual, sporty vibes with sneakers, anything else will look confusing.
Perched on my face is the best fitting pair of sunnies ever. They’re especially designed with a elevated fit that sit on the bridge of your nose perfectly. This little knitted top and skirt number paired back with these slightly higher ankle boots are perfect for that transition out of winter season which I’m welcoming with open arms. I am loving the retro design on the sweater and fringing on the denim skirt. It’s a nice contrast and juxtaposition which we sometimes need in an outfit.
Totally milking the ‘Casual Friday’ vibe. Wearing mom jeans and what I’m pretty sure is a men’s tee of which I have no qualms – a tee is a tee and chicks can pull of guy’s tees!
I’m also rocking the Rhianna Fentys which are these faux fur slides. Totally a ‘trend’ piece but if it’s a trend piece as comfy as this then I’m on board. I ordered my size but they probably run on the bigger size so I wish I had sized down.
And this is legit: I had run out of contacts so I was just wearing my glasses with all intentions of taking them off for the shoot but instead kept them on just because it was easier (and because I could see). My brother later asked if I were wearing contacts and if the glasses were fake prescription.. Like no. Why and who would do that? Apparently there are people who do?!
