I was dog sitting my friend’s dogs for a day… coincidentally coincided with my studio shoot (in my new studio! Yay!) and yes, Woody insisted on being in every. single. damn. shot. Would you also believe that he LOVES licking the coconut oil off of my skin? Just a little tip for your next dog licking skin photoshoot – they love it.
So yeah, it’s the middle of winter and I am not getting out half as much as I usually do because #lazy and so it seemed fitting to stay indoors and shoot my new favourite things including this cute satin playsuit & beanie from Showpo. It would be perfect to wear with over the knee boots and a chunky knit sweater otherwise if you’re blessed to be in the northern hemisphere just slide into a pair of strappy sandals or sneakers and roll out!
There’s nothing cosier than a fleecy pullover in winter. Working from home I live in them everyday & why wouldn’t I stock on on something I wear 7 days a week! hahah
Just checking in on this weekend edit and giving you the low-down on what’s been happening. I’ve officially moved into full time blogging (yay!) as well as creating content and still designing freelance. I set up a cute studio in my home (apartment) and despite all the extra hours I’m getting to work on the blog I still find myself working 7 days a week. How?? I guess the reality with blogging is that social media never turns off so you can’t either.
I do occasionally let myself have social media detox days where I don’t post or check instagram or any outlet I can’t be bothered with as it just de-stresses me and clears my head. Something that everyone who’s addicted to social media should do every so often.
I love mixing pastels into the winter mix, if you’re not overly sold on baby pink or lavender than blue/ grey is a fantastic alternative. The colour of these blue grey boots are perfect for the knit and coat. I just added the softness of the pink shorts instead of using black or denim and then added the white collar to prep up the look. I didn’t want the shorts to look too out of place so I wore these cute, rose tinted sunnies… a wardrobe staple is you ask me.
It’s not a secret that I’m a sucker for a little bikini and I loved this tangerine/ coral number from Beginning boutique. The tiny straps are perfect for tanning (not that my fake tan isn’t enough). Also, because it’s creeping into winter I’m not actually going into the water, instead I’m also faking that and spraying my locks with sea salt spray! Something I do daily whether the beach is involved or not to add texture to my naturally straight hair.
It’s no secret that I’m a little bit of a foodie. I enjoy a meal out here or there, everywhere, everyday. So I went and checked out Grandma’s in Rosebery for something different with my also foodie fashion blogger friend, Laurie. Their homestyle cooking menu is just what we needed. Especially as I’m not one to cook a hearty meal for myself at home, ever. But I’m sure one day when I’m forced to cook for myself, and maybe even a family, I’ll be looking at Grandma’s menu for inspiration! But until that day I’ll just pop this little gem on the eating list.
In this post I’m wearing a little crop top and short number from Keepsake paired back with a BCBG Max Azria vest, white booties, white sunnies and top knot. Just to keep it chill and cheerful.
Last night I made it out to the house of Marks and Spencer for the launch of their Australian site and as you know I’m a huge advocate for online shopping, so I couldn’t be more thrilled that there is another online retailer offering me free delivery to Australia. (Although this could be dangerous).
I wore a soft rust cowl neck cami with long wide leg pants because pinstripes and column pants give you the illusion of length and tallness… and let’s be honest I need all the help I can get!
White denim in the summer is just one of those things, it’s just right, it makes your tan pop and it isn’t as hot as wearing black. I’ve been living in these white denim shorts all summer and yes I may have to run them through the wash a couple more times than my black and denim ones but they’re hella cute, eh.
I haven’t injected much colour into my bikini wardrobe much until now. As soon as I saw this little number I knew it’d be perfect for the season and perhaps a gateway into me collecting a few more bikinis that aren’t just black or white! MinkPink is a great brand for picking up some fun pieces to brighten your summer wardrobe and basically your life… So get on it if that’s what you’d like to do!
I’ve been all about basic swimwear so far this year, nothing with too many bells and whistles and this LBB (little black bikini) is the perfect size, shape and style for tanning and swimming. Here’s to the end of 2015! I hope you’ve all had a fantastic year, and I hope the next is only onwards and upwards!
One of my easiest, most relaxed looks to date; jeans and a cami with flats. If you swap out your jersey tee with a woven cami it can easily and instantly transform a very, very casual outfit to something still casual but a bit more sexy and can take you into the night… add heels if you want even more attention!
