Bonds in Bondi

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 having the most mentally draining week with back to back events and meetings after work I have come to realise why I ever started blogging – because I love it. I love sharing with people what I’m wearing, sharing my love for style, creating a shoot by putting together a look and finding beautiful locations to suit, and I love meeting likeminded people. Tonight I caught up with a few girls that reminded me of this after I might have gotten a little bit slack on the blogging end of things.

A few days ago Jock and I drove out to the beach after work and caught the sunset (on the east coast, mind you) and free people danced ourselves along my fave little beach tucked away between two of Sydney’s busiest beaches and just enjoyed our time away from the city and away from our daily grind.

I think taking time to enjoy your life and realising why you do what you do, realise what you’re passionate about is going to really ice the cake on your day, your week, your month and your overall mood. Easier said than done but when you’re doing what you love it makes all the difference. So go get ‘em.

Muchacho

jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-muchacho jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-muchacho jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-muchacho jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-muchacho jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-muchacho Bondi based clothing & swim designer, Andy Cameron released these fantastic photo printed bikinis. Inspired by all things Latino, he often travels to Central America and Mexico for ‘photographic expeditions’ not a bad gig if you ask me! He then prints them onto nylon and makes sexy wearable art.

I always love bandeaus as the don’t give nasty string tan lines and high rise because they always make your legs look loooonnnggerrr, it also captures that gorgeous 50s swim feel. See more swimwear here from Muchacho.

Sun Diego

We stopped into about 4-5 stores before I walked into ‘Sun Diego’ (what a name!) I found this little gem, a reversible bikini & I wish I could tell you the brand but I cut it out (because of the whole reversible thing).

The print is gorgeous, wolves & Ikat – the reverse looks like pomegranate haha. I love bikinis with removable straps because my tan lines are so obvious I try avoiding strappy straps & triangles #firstworldproblems. I’ve layered my Urban Outfitters Urban Renewal overall dress on top.

Saving Daylight

I feel like I’ve come out of hibernation, even though we didn’t even have a real winter.

To celebrate the extra hours of light this year I took out my new floral and lace MINKPINK bikini with matching shorts, so cute! sunnies also from MINKPINK.

Playsuits & Parades

I guarantee you’ll find your runners, locals, euro tourists, euro local tourists (these are the ones which consider themselves locals because they’ve lived there for 6 months and hadn’t heard of any other suburb to live in), the token group of asians decked out in pants and jackets in 30 degree weather, camera in hand, standing by the shore, running away from the water & taking group selfies. Bless. And then there’s me, a girl from the burbs livin’ in the city just tryin’ a have a good time with her friends. Taking selfies in my fave new romper.

What I love about this playsuit is the drapeyness and the swingyness, so bring on the wind! I wore this MINKPINK playsuit & sunnies with my Fitz Buckle Sandals by Spurr. Keepin’ it comfy. Keepin’ it real.
