I admit most people don’t have as many bikinis as I do, but if you’re going to invest in one, it has to be a little black bikini. I love a good, supportive fit, made from good fabric like this one from All Sisters and below I’ve put together a slideshow of some others I also recommend.
The perfect little statement bag is here. Sending good vibes through quilted gold and chains! I’m obsessed with this little love heart cross over bag from Colette by Colette Hayman, it adds personality and glamour to any look whether it’s casual or cocktail. If the love heart shape isn’t for you I recommend this metal gold quilted clutch for a more classic look.
I’ve teamed it with a thigh high split lace skirt and oversized tee for a laid back, going out look with strappy khaki heels from Billini.
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.
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.
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!
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.
With the party season coming up I thought I would stop into Topshop to pick out some fun party peices. I grabbed this sick denim mini which has these lace up details, a little change up from your normal denim mini and the fit is perfect! Also, this cami is perfect to go back with denim shorts, jeans or skirts… dress it up or down I don’t think you can ever really have enough black camis! My faveourite peice is this floral embroidered leather bag with this chunky silver chain it’s honestly the coolest bag ever that isn’t over $2000!
All black with accents of gold and beige for the first day of summer. I am in love with this little tote bag with it’s removeable palm tree and tassle, it can make your outfit cute and fun or remove it and it’s perfect for the office. Also, I’m never taking off this pineapple ring and ring choker – the new ‘it’ accessories for summer. That’s why I always love checking out Colette by Colette Hayman because they have the coolest styles at such an affordable price! Also how amazing is this low back halter top, would also look amazing dressed up with a mini skirt or bodycon midi skirt with heels or dressed down with denim cut offs. So many options!
There’s no secret I am at the beach every single week at least a few times and of course I have the whole packing your stuff down pat. So alongside my beach towel I’ll pack sunnies, a pair of thongs (flip flops), a book, my phone, a water bottle and most importantly sunscreen. This striped faux leather beach bag from Colette by Colette Hayman fits everything perfectly as well as makes any outfit 10x cuter.
What you need to look for in a denim mini this season is a high waisted a-line with a raw edge like this one I picked up from Glassons. The raw edge gives the mini a less structured, more relaxed feel and the a-line shape (not bodycon) will also add to the casual look, not dig into your thighs and I personally find it more flattering on the body, just make sure you find the right length for you. I like short mini skirts because my legs are actually really short (for my body) but someone with long legs needs a longer length mini which doesn’t flare out as much otherwise it can start to look really chunky.
I’ve paired it back with this white off-the-shoulder blouse and strappy heels for a casual going out look as showing off your shoulders is still a sexy lil thing we should all do once in a while hehe.
