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.
I thought I’d get a little festive with this crimson velvet slip number keeping it merry and bright but also sexy and casual with black booties and mirrored sunnies. I’m never fully on party mode lately and I rarely get dressed up and when I do I have to bring it back down to earth somehow with sneakers or boots haha.
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.
One of the best dresses this summer in my very humble opinion is the oversized tee dress, This one’s from Tobi. I love wearing these dresses street style with boots and a leather jacket when it’s cold enough or to the beach with slides and a cap. They’re perfect for that casual summer look… or when you know you’re going to have a big lunch lol. Opt for a stripe or a tee with a logo on the front so it doesn’t look like you’re just wearing your boyfriend’s pj tee out with no pants that you slept in the night before.
I wanted to shoot a bikini a little differently so I did as I always do on a hot, sunny day and blow up a floatie! I got this super cute watermelon blow up from Clark Rubber and if you wanted you can get a whole fruit salad including limes and strawberries. The next one I’m going to invest in is the big blow up boat – they’re so fun out on the bay with a bunch of friends and an esky! Seriously my favourite thing to do on New Years Eve.
The best thing about this as a Christmas gift is that it’s perfect for all summer long, I could imagine me on Christmas day after lunch, blowing it up in the backyard and using it as an air mattress as some younger sibling family member just stands there spraying a hose into the air and letting the cold water fall onto you…. the bliss… That or you’re lucky enough to have a pool for it’s intended use (which my family don’t!).
Going into December I’m going to be rolling out some fun videos for you including Christmas gift ideas and even fun things to spoil yourself with (haha because let’s be honest we all kind of do!) Like this cute bag I picked up in Bali, surprisingly it fits alot and I’ve gotten so many comments on it while away and on my instagram so I wanted to share with you all where to pick one up for summer as it’s perfect for the beach!
I’ve worn alot of bikinis in my time and nothing annoys me more than a bikini that’s too tight, which is often the case and why I order a size up (10) to my normal dress size (8). However when I ordered this Grana bikini it was nice to find that it is completely seamless at the edges. Just like your favourite seamless underwear you wear under your bodycon dresses and skirts these bikinis won’t be giving you muffin top! I also got the red one peice which I featured on my instagram here and here. They’re also good if you’re into a little bit more coverage.
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.
