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.
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.
One thing that I really love is small, leather cross body handbags that can magically fit so much! This bag is definitely one of them. I’m a huge fan of smaller, tiny hand bags because I find larger ones or totes get too heavy and cumbersome and you don’t need 90% of the things in there! (unless it’s a gym bag, or you’re a mum). For me all I need is my card holder, phone, keys and lipstick. I’m fairly low maintenance like that.
I love the red piping and laser cut out detail on the front as well as the super cute tassel which hangs off the side. The bag also comes with an interchangeable canvas strap which is red (to match the trim) if you wish to change it over!
As we were driving around Perth for a very specific desolate and isolated road we found the perfect one right next to a shipping yard, and for some reason there are very cute, pastel coloured shipping containers on the lot. Of course I had to ‘pretend’ to break in being the try-hard law abiding citizen I am. Nonetheless. The reason I have no pants on is because I didn’t have any. We didn’t plan this shoot and I had nothing with me but a bikini, my fave Nike sweater and my Calvin Klein tee but we have to take every photo op available. Perth is weird. It was kind of bikini weather kind of sweater weather. In future I will pack better. Lesson learnt.
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.
Mixing your sporty pieces with your non-sporty pieces (like denim) is what I’m all about right now. Think Hailey Baldwin and Kendall. This bomber is so dope, it’s a neat collab between illustrator Careuax and Puma, it’s fully reversible and I’ve been wearing it way more than I thought I would. It’s super warm too, I’m talking warm like a snow jacket and it’s perfect to layer over your sporty crop top for when you’re heading to the gym or just being a boss.
These mom jeans are great for balancing out the tiny-ness of the crop top, if you were to wear skinny jeans it might look slightly hoochie or maybe it’s just me that probably wouldn’t be able to pull it off. I also find that mom jeans or boyfriend jeans aren’t so tight at the waistline so you generally don’t have to deal with ‘muffin top’ yes all girls have this! even the ‘skinny’ ones. LOL. But make sure you keep the casual, sporty vibes with sneakers, anything else will look confusing.
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.
Totally milking the ‘Casual Friday’ vibe. Wearing mom jeans and what I’m pretty sure is a men’s tee of which I have no qualms – a tee is a tee and chicks can pull of guy’s tees!
I’m also rocking the Rhianna Fentys which are these faux fur slides. Totally a ‘trend’ piece but if it’s a trend piece as comfy as this then I’m on board. I ordered my size but they probably run on the bigger size so I wish I had sized down.
And this is legit: I had run out of contacts so I was just wearing my glasses with all intentions of taking them off for the shoot but instead kept them on just because it was easier (and because I could see). My brother later asked if I were wearing contacts and if the glasses were fake prescription.. Like no. Why and who would do that? Apparently there are people who do?!
