I got to spend the day with three of my favourite girls, Helen, Ash and Kiara for Glassons… we went on a fun road trip up to Palm Beach and got to cruise with this amazing vintage 1950s Chevvy! I had such an amazing time and I never take for granted that I get to do the things I love with the best girls around me!
In this look I’m wearing my fave Glassons denim shorts, a lace racer back bralette and layered over it I’ve got this awesome oversized mesh top. Mesh tees are the biggest things right now, they’re perfect for summer because you can layer over bikinis, bralettes as well as singlet tops and it looks different every time. I have it tied up but it also looks great tucked in or undone just hanging over a pair of mom or skinny jeans and sneakers for a more tom boy look.
So get yourself into Glassons because they have literally every style of clothing you need and you can get a whole outfit for under $100!
I’ve worn camis layered over tees to death and I’m far from done. I love this look because the tee underneath is a long sleeve, mesh high neck tee. I love the idea of a mesh tees as they are so versatile, you can layer cute shaped bralettes underneath or layer more mesh shirts or tops over it, as well as opaque camis and tanks.
The next time I wear this top I think I’ll wear a black bodysuit under it and tuck it into a pair of high waisted, baggy shorts and belt it.
I literally only have four hair styles: down, half up top knot, pony tail (strictly reserved for the gym) and this two top knot situation. It’s a bit out there sometimes but it really makes a statement which I like.
I love this look for a balmy night out or lunch out with friends. It’s so casual and chic and I love the injections of leather especially my new Love Moschino bag and my shiny new Acne boots I’ve been eyeing off for years… I finally bit the bullet and invested in them! You guys on instagram went mental over my flat lay so I thought I’d share my thoughts on it.
So is it worth the $750 price tag? My favourite type of black ankle boots are chelsea boots – these are boots with elastic on the sides (no zipper) so you can just slip on and off. Well, I’ve gone through about 10 pairs (no joke) of leather and non-leather black chelsea boots, a couple which are blatant rip-offs of these ones which I can easily say equate if not more to the price of the Acnes. All of the boots were same-same but different, the main difference being a variation in heel height. My perfect pair of chelsea boots have a higher heel of around 3 inches ideally however these only come in 1.5 inches.
I love pointed toes but these points are very very pointy… to the point where if you have a larger sized foot I can see them looking a little too big (I’m a size 7 so average on all accounts). So because they’re already almost flat (not a high heel) the boot looks longer than your foot, which may or may not be ideal.
The leather is gorgeous but as all leather does it has a tendency to crease and I’ve seen this on other instagrammer’s posts of these boots. You can tell when they’re doing a flat lay with boots which have been worn and boots that are fresh out of the box. The crease across the top where your foot bends can look annoying but it’s all a part of smooth leather and wearing leather in so unavoidable but it doesn’t always happen with my other leather boots which have a pebbled design on the leather. So if this bothers you I would recommend the textured leather option.
One good point in the design of the shoe is the heel tab, I have had heaps of chelsea boots where the heel tab is aesthetic only and you can’t actually get your finger in the loop to pull the boot on. In other instances I’ve had the tab completely rip off due to poor manufacturing. I’m sure this isn’t going to be the case in this circumstance.
So all in all I recommend this style if you prefer lower heels & don’t mind (really) pointed toes and I would get the textured leather if I could again as scuffs and creases won’t show up as easily.
If you’re headed to the beach there are so many options on what you can wear, a dress, shorts, tee, singlet… but my fave at the moment has gotta be a linen/ cotton shirt and denim. I’m wearing the shirt because once you’re done for the day you can just throw it over, you don’t necessarily have to button it up, you can just wear it as a cover up and walk back to your car/ house/ villa wherever you are going without having to mess up too much of your clothes with your wet swimsuit. Another winner for the shirt is that I often lie on the beach with a something over my face, and it always end up being my clothing… and a shirt is great for that because it’s light, is breathable and has a lot of fabric.
This has also got to be my new favourite go to watch. It has a silver mesh band is doesn’t work on holes but just a clippy mechanism which I find alot easier (since I’m so uncoordinated!) And as much as I love golds and rose golds… all of my favourite ‘everyday’ rings are silver so this watch just makes so much sense! Why didn’t I get this before??

So happy I got to shoot with the gorgeous Tori and Karina on Echo Beach in Bali, Indonesia. Was such a fun shoot and great way to document our time in Bali and capture how we don’t ever really take anything too seriously and we’re just out to have a lot of fun, see beautiful places and meet wonderful people. We’re already planning our trip back!
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’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.
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.
Cami and jeans are I’d say a pretty basic look and it’s easy to achieve this look with the basics already in your wardrobe. The only way I’ve made this look different to almost all of my other cami/ jeans looks is by layering accessories. You’ll notice they’re not even chunky accessories but rather a lot of delicate pieces that make up a look that seems put together but messy at the same time (in a good way). Try experimenting with layering fine necklaces, midi rings and mixing metals & even adding some corded leather.
If you’ve been following my blog or insta for a while you’ll be well aware that my style is made up of sneakers, boots and over the knee (OTK) boots. As a self-appointed ambassador I’d like to extend to you an invitation to join the very sexy OTK boots club if you aren’t already in it. I often get told I have too much confidence for my own good and I even need to dial it down a little. But I’m not ‘too confident’ in a cocky way… I just think that when girls wear OTK boots it gives them an instant ‘look’ about them as though they don’t care about what anyone thinks because they’re slaying the sidewalks! That and they can be fashionable and warm at the same time (lol). In addition, OTK boots are leaps and bounds more comfortable than any other heels. Case and point.
