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!
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.
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!
Everybody’s got their LBDs, plural, because you should have more than one, but do you have a LWB?? Yes, little white dress… the perfect ensemble for summer. I can’t tell you have many comments I’ve gotten each time I’ve worn this dress which has only been twice. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s the fit, the flattering shape, or the fact that wearing white makes you look way more tanned. And when you look tanned you look slimmer.
I’ve opted to pair the dress with light, neutral accessories such as these tan booties, light pink YSL bag and sunnies because black accessories or shoes can sometimes overpower a white dress or cut off your body when you’re trying to look longer and taller. The same tones in an outfit will give the impression that you’re taller than what you are! And I need that lol.
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.
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!
Hi Guys, just thought I’d update you on what’s going on in my life: this week is particualry stressful. On the weekend I was too excited to gram and walked into the ocean without looking where I was going and walked onto a rock covered in oysters so I really did a number on my foot and am now hobbling my life away like a 87 y/o grandma. I’m dumb, lesson learnt.
This was a great week for that to happen as I’m moving out of my apartment that I’ve been in for over four years right before I’m going to Bali for two weeks. So needless to say I’m going to be on my feet for the next 3 weeks! Yay for me. Yay for not healing.
The next few days will be full of packing, packing, shooting, packing and moving and unpacking and packing and then flying. I’m usually quite into going to the gym right before I have a tropical getaway however I don’t think I’ll be able to be on my feet for much more of the day so I don’t know how that’s going to pan out…
Despite all of this I’ve realised I have so many amazing friends in my life who have volunteered to help a little ‘ol me pack up, move, drive and just be there for moral as well as physical support. Makes me so happy
So here’s to you guys! *raises non-alcholic glass of something because I’m not drinking right now since I can’t go to the gym and work out*
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.
