Up your jean game

I love jeans and I need every type of jeans, especially mum jeans. Right now what I love is this extra saucy style from Missy Empire. I love the cut out detail on the pocket, it just gives it that added va va voom. The fit is quite slouchy which I love because it gives you a very ‘cool girl’ vibe.

I’ve put it together with these awesome Superga slides because slides are the most convenient and comfy pair of shoes/ sandals in my closet right now… just slide in and go!

Are you into mum jeans or are you staying true to skinny jeans?

Introducing Colette Hayman Leather

Lately I’ve been adding real quality brands and styles to my collection of handbags. One of the best things is that Colette by Colette Hayman are now doing leather bags!!! Right now they’re all gorgeous staple styles which will last you a lifetime and at really affordable prices. So you can still buy your fashion favourite. For me it’s this pink leather leather cross body, because you feel like you have a $1800 bag but it’s only $90!

Which bag would you get, or which designer bag are you eyeing off??

Holiday Mode

I can’t believe we stumbled upon this gorgeous little cafe in Manly, it literally made me feel like I was on a vacation from the eastern suburbs of Sydney! With my stripey dress, weekender and backpack next to the grass bar I felt like I was on a tropical getaway. Funny how a little outfit change, an ice latte, driving half and hour up the coast and a fresh set of earrings can perk your mood.

Absolut Botanik Upcycle

A lot of people like to stick with what they know and are comfortable with, but I challenge you to try new things as you may be pleasantly surprised from time to time. A new restaurant, a new hair style, a new walking or driving route, a new item on the menu and in this case, a new drink.

So when Alsolut Vodka came out with this new pre-mix flavour by one of my favourite drinks Absolut Botanik, I had to try it: Berry and Lemon… and now I’m hooked! Literally two of my favourite flavours, lemonade and berries! A match made in heaven.

In this post I’ve showcased the lifespan with this new bottle. I’ve taken out to a day in the park, enjoying it as I’m heading to a party with my friends and at the party, and then upclying it (one of my favourite things to do as I try to minimise waste). Then I kept the bottle and used it as a vase for some greenery around the house!

What do you think?! And what will you try out that’s new this week?

Last week I announced that FBI Fashion College students will be showcasing their end of year designs at Castle Towers from October 5th – 17th. If you haven’t seen my Part I of this post, you can find it here.

In this post I am wearing a gorgeous champagne satin slip with embroidered denim jacket made from repurposed denim (which is amazing because I am a huge fan of recycling), designs by the young and talented Emily Parker.

When life gives you lemons

A little impromptu shoot I did with Wes while out at Bronte pool. So simple yet I love this series of images (if I say so myself) which I think is a good indicator that I’m doing what I love. After a series of unfortunate events with work that got and me down and down again I love that what I truely love doing is creating content and producing work I’m proud of with my team, a team of two. Wes and I. Hahahah.

In a world where everything you do has to be done because you’re paid for it it’s nice to step back and do something you’re not paid for a remember why you started in the first place, decide if you still love doing it or not. If you do, keep going!! If you don’t, find something else you’re good at and start that. It’s never too late to start a new career.

The highlight of the trip was going to Villa Del Balbianello in Lenno, it’s the heavily manicured gardens you see in my midi length floral dress… highly recommend! Also, the best way to see the lake is from the lake – take the ferry or if you’re lucky enough get a boat!

This place is a dream and everywhere is a photo opportunity not to be missed.

Look 2:

Pretty Little Thing Hollie Black Metallic Biker Jacket | Cilla Basic Jersey Flare Leg Jumpsuit | Naye Black Dragon Detail Choker | Feenga Gold Hexagon Frame Sunglasses | Gebriel Black Ring Zip Sock Boots


I’m a big fan of versatility and a jacket that I can wear day to night and to look completely different from the beginning of the day to the end is a jacket I can get on board with. For my lunch time stroll by the beach I wore the biker with my denim skirt, cropped tee and studded boots with the sleeves bunched up at the elbows. I transitioned this rock/ grunge look into dinner by changing into a jersey flared jumpsuit, belted it, threw on boot heels and made it hella dope by adding a dragon choker. I wore the jacket as a cape because that’s just what bloggers do. You should try it some time.

Both of these looks came from Pretty Little Thing a website which I am obsessing over right now because of how many styles they have available that are on point and affordable. So check them out for your next wardrobe haul.

My Favourite Bomber Jacket

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy Stussy Puffer Bomber Jacket | Quay Muse Fade Sunglasses | Kendall + Kylie Shiloh Slides | Topshop Denim Lace Up Skirt


I’ve been living in this bomber ever since I got it – I’ve never been cold wearing this thing!! It’s been a lifesaver because it’s been getting cold and frankly I do not want any part of it.

I shot this last week at a staycation at The Primus Hotel in Sydney but I’ll be doing a separate post to that. This is just a weekend casual snapshot of what I was wearing.
