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.
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.
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.
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*
Just checking in! hope you’re all well and loving life. Thought I’d share these unpublished photos Wes and I took while we were on the Central coast. I love this little series because the beach was almost completely empty and I was actually struggling with catching any light (it was about 6pm) and the wind was gale force. But despite this we still managed to do what we love and do best which is capture photos and enjoy the beach.
Hope you’re all having the best weekend and are ready to wrap up the year!!
