Some brands just know how to re-market themselves and slay it. To me it looks like every ‘it girl’ and influencer is wearing Tommy! with obviously Gigi leading the charge I kind of sort of definitely had to jump on board. Their wicked styles like this red denim jacket and mesh tee are so on trend right now it hurts.
One of my favourite looks for Fashion Week last week was this take on check suits swapping out check pants for a mini dress and a check blazer for a trench. I’ve femme’d it up by adding a Gucci belt bag (check here to see my unboxing and other way I’ve styled it) and toughened it up by adding black booties.
I like to call my style somewhere in between androgynous and feminine.
Well helloooo, The Iconic! We meet again. If you’re an OG follower you’d know I started my career in Fashion Design. I got a gig at The Iconic in 2011 as a design assistant for their in house labels which I helped grow and create and then worked my way up as designer in their start up phase! I then went on to be a designer for some other labels until I slowly worked my way into blogging full time in 2015!
So here we are now – The Iconic has asked me to be a part of their influencer campaign for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, I’m in an actual dream state that something can come so full circle. I love The Iconic and I love that they’re adding premium ranges into their product list so I’m so happy to be a part of this! And for Fashion Week so no less, what a dream come true!
Thank you to The Iconic, without your help in the start I wouldn’t be here today, literally!
It’s official, it’s a thing… cargo pants are trending so get on board or get left behind! Androgyny isn’t a new thing for Fashion and Sounds. I like to teeter on boyfriend styling and feminine, but never frilly, too pretty. That’s just not me. So when the uber-comfy, wide leg cargo started popping up left, right and centre helloooo I jumped on that train because I think if you’re styling it with something tight and cropped up top then you’re not going to look like you’ve just walked out of a military base camp, but instead, a runway as it’s still in it’s early stages of phasing itself into the general community. If you pair it with a heeled boot or open toe stiletto then even better!
So go on – use the world as your runway and own this look. My boyfriend did not understand the cargo/ skater boy look whatsoever but then again… he’s left behind and so far off the train I can’t even hear his distaste anymore.
The belt bag, fanny pack, bum bag, whatever you may wanna call it is back, baby! But for how long? Who really knows, it’s like bitcoin… gonna be around forever but won’t always be in it’s peak… but I’d say it’s just about to hit it’s peak veeeryyyy soon with Coachella around the corner and numerous other festivals and hands free events coming up.
I’m going to admit that it’s not something my boyfriend has adapted to much but he also doesn’t like flares so I take his opinion with a grain of salt… and in this day and age we shouldn’t be dressing for boys, we should dress for ourselves and what makes us happy. And what makes me happiest. And what makes me happy is an awesome bag that fits my iphone and keys and if you’re going away for a weekend or something just take the weekender with you too!
So one of my favourite Aussie swimwear labels listened to you guys, they designed a range that is high cut, high rise and cheeky! Seafolly have created a super bright, on-trend range that channels the inner 80s in us. I’ve been wearing super cheeky cut bikini bottoms for a few summers now and I think that this range is a gorgeous gateway if you’re looking at moving into their cheeky cut bottom but don’t necessarily want to want a g-string cut just yet!
The high-rise side will make your legs look longer (something I definitely need standing at 165cm tall! and if you have a long torso like I do then the high waisted shape will be supr flattering as well. I chose red because I love the vibrancy but they have black if you’re more inclined.
I recommend to go up a size. I’m wearing a 12, I usually wear 10 in bikinis.
Sometimes getting out of town to explore new inspiration is the right thing to do. Believe it or not but this is Wes and I’s first swim shoot this summer! I think it’s partly because we were both away over Christmas and New Year’s and the fact that I personally haven’t been super motivated to shoot swim because I haven’t been my fittest.
Buuuuttt sometime’s it’s good to force yourself to do what you love and just cover up the pizza belly with a one piece hahah. I’m actually super obsessed with this gorgeous one-piece from Kopper and Zink. The detail is gorgeous and the cut and colour is perfect. It’s not too cheeky as it doesn’t come up too high on the sides and not too conservative, I think it’s a perfect in between if that’s what you’re looking for.
10 days until Valentine’s Day so I’m getting into the spirit of all things cute and red and love and blahblahblah. As if this wouldn’t be the cutest outfit to wear on a picnic with your ~bae~ on Valentine’s Day, casual yet cute ya know.
I’m actually planning a cute friends Valentine’s Day post so stay tuned!!!
I don’t actually know what Joey and I are doing for Valentines’ Day, it falls on a Wed so we’ll both be working in the day *BOO* so we’ll probably book a dinner somewhere and let’s be honest I’ll probably wear something oversized so I can eat too much as usual.
A new take on Double Denim! I love this denim bag and denim jacket combo it’s so lush. I’m really into a blue and pink colour palette right now so I’m feeling super fresh haha.
Also, I’m obsessed with these Converse Sneakers. They have a bit of a platform which magically makes your legs suuuuper long! I don’t think anyone should be going through their life without a pair of Converse Sneakers, and if you already have one then get another! and make it platform!!! You won’t regret it.
