How to style the corset belt trend

One of the latest trends we’ve been seeing off the runway is the corset belt, most notably at Prada where we saw lace up midriff corsets layered over coats and shirts giving fresh life to innerwear as outerwear. I love the lingerie inspired corset belt being utilised in a layered, cool girl capacity rather than looking suggestive.

Here I’ve styled it over an oversized mesh tee and thrown over an oversized open shirt to give the trend an androgynous, sporty, lazy look with the black and white sports inspired stiletto boots. I posted an instagram wearing it over a jumpsuit and under a pink duster to show how else it can be styled. Other ways would be right over the oversized button up shirt with thigh high boots. Get creative and you’ll look like the ultimate cool girl at your next soiree.

Kissed By A Dusty Rose

Dusty Rose is easily one of my favourite colours this season, it’s not a baby pink, not a mauve but a very specific tone of pink which will transition from summer into autumn perfectly. Also, if you haven’t found yourself jumping onto the velvet band wagon yet please let this dusty pink cami be your segway. Glassons also carry this gorgeous pink crushed velvet slip dress which I styled on my insta here. I saw the cami and dress and although almost the same I needed both haha don’t judge. But with such affordable prices why not!? My favourite part about collecting so much dusty pink over the season is that I can style it all together. I love the duster with the cami and bag – don’t be afraid to double or triple up your colour scheme because it really stands out.

My Kind of Roses

I love roses, I love mom jeans and I love embroidered denim… so these jeans scream ‘me’ right now haha. I put these epic mom jeans together with my 90′s inspired double crop top duo, a crushed velvet cami over a white fitted tee. Layered over that is a velvet necklace with crystal from Samantha Wills. To keep it summer and basic I had chucked on my favourite slides of the season and signature round sunnies. There’s no better way than getting good use out of basics by layering them and putting them with denim.

Cutest Summer Outfit Yet

fashion-and-sounds-showpo-rochessa-balenciaga fashion-and-sounds-showpo-rochessa-balenciaga fashion-and-sounds-showpo-rochessa-balenciaga fashion-and-sounds-showpo-rochessa-balenciaga fashion-and-sounds-showpo-rochessa-balenciaga fashion-and-sounds-showpo-rochessa-balenciaga fashion-and-sounds-showpo-rochessa-balenciaga Colette by Colette Hayman Down Arrow Necklace | Kookai Top (similar here and here) | Showpo Lover Not A Fighter Skirt | Le Specs Hey Yeh Sunglasses | Black Leather Watch | Rochessa Olympia Sandal Tan | Balenciaga Bag


There’s something about blue and tan being worn together, it’s such a perfect combo. I’m labelling this as the cutest summer outfit I’ve put together this whole season! (big call but not actually important) It must be a combination of the colours, the a-line mini skirt, the little peplum top that’s layered over it and these gorgeous leather gladiator sandals.  Add big round sunnies for dramatic effect.

Hope you’re all having the best start to February!

Your new favourite weekend look

A relaxed little number for day to night. And I don’t mean office to night I mean go out for arvo drinks which turn into the night lol. I have paired this plunging crop top with these textured shorts because sometimes you’re not in the mood for a figure hugging pencil skirt or jeans just aren’t high enough! (a girl’s gotta eat and I don’t want any unsolicited rolls!). As a safety net & an element of casualness I’ve added my favourite go-to silk button up as a cover up. Because it’s silk it’s gorgeously drapes over your shoulders without it looking corporate and if it were to get chilly in the night then just wear it open and roll up the sleeves a couple times.

The bikini colour you need for this summer

bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear Zulu and Zephyr Easterly Harness Bikini (black here) (similar here)


Green bikinis are one of those things this season that everyone is jumping onto. Well when I say green it’s more olive or khaki, a natural green. I love this colour because as we go into the middle of the summer season your tan is a little deeper and the khaki colour will really compliment your skin tone. I naturally have an olive undertone in my tan but I believe no matter what tone your skin is it can pull off this gorgeous bikini colour.

Try this one from Jade Swim with thin triangle straps, or this strapless bikini with bow detail or my peronal fave from Kiini.

How to do Sports Luxe

A little bit of metallic highlight can amp up your #athleisure OOTD because we all know that only 30% of the people* in Sydney (specifically Bondi/ Surry Hills/ Paddington) are actually exercising in their gear. Here I’m wearing my fave silk track pants from Grana with my silver metallic capped white leather sneakers with big ‘F**k Off’ sunnies just to add drama with the earrings. Sports luxe/ Atheleisure whatever you want to call it is meant to be comfy and laid back but don’t limit yourself to capri yoga leggings and a tank top so have some fun with it!

*completely made up figure but I can’t be far off

Summer Cashmere

Keeping it neutral with a grey silk cashmere tee from Grana, it’s lightweight and oversized so not too hot but would be perfect for winter as well. I’m wearing a size XS but if you prefer to wear things looser through the arms I’d get a size or two up, I don’t see the body size changing too much. It’s perfect for the lazy tuck, full tuck or fully untucked – this is the beauty of drapery fabrics.

I’ve paired it with a pair of high waisted pinstripe loose leg shorts because it’s been so hot lately and this style of short is perfect for the season & not overheating! as well as these gorgeous leather gladiator sandals which are soo comfy.

I hope you’ve achieved lots in the first half of the first month of the new year… I know I have!

Jeans and a tee re-vamp

aletheia-phos aletheia-phos aletheia-phos aletheia-phos aletheia-phos Aletheia Phos I Carry Your Heart Ring | Aletheia Phos Cor Luna Ring | Aletheia Phos Remember Me Ring | Aletheia Phos Kaleidoscope Ring | Aletheia Phos Holy Fire Hoops | Topshop Embroidered Jamie Jeans (black here)| Topshop No Thanks Tee | Rochessa Slides


You all know that 6 out of 7 of my outfits in a week will revolve around a pair of jeans and t-shirt. So in efforts to mix it up I have picked up these sick embroidered jeans and cute little “No Thanks” tee to match back with my gorgeous silver bits and peices I picked up from Aletheia Phos.

I love the gorgeous details on the silver jewellery and how easy everything is to wear with literally any outfit. Anything from their range would be a stunning gift for someone special this Christmas. My personal favourite is the I Carry Your Heart Ring. It’s a fun, new take on a heart, being more literal than figurative. Genius if you ask me! As sometimes when I wear love hearts I feel a little cutesy and girly. Which also goes back to my tee, it’s a love heart, but also a little bit of a “Yeah, nah, not interested” hahah.

Christmas Slip

I thought I’d get a little festive with this crimson velvet slip number keeping it merry and bright but also sexy and casual with black booties and mirrored sunnies. I’m never fully on party mode lately and I rarely get dressed up and when I do I have to bring it back down to earth somehow with sneakers or boots haha.
