Are we really wearing Cargo Pants again?

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.

See some of my favourite cargos below.

Coachella Dreaming

If you’re like me you woke up on Saturday morning to an influx of glitter, short shorts, maxi dresses, braids, denim, crochet and wanderlust over everybody at Palm Springs and Coachella. I was so inspired by the scenery I told Wes we should try shoot at this cactus location I found a few months back, I was half joking but Wes being Wes he was in the area and always keen as usual! What a legend!

So I put my very last minute “Coachella” outfit together and we somehow made it work. I even fooled people on instagram and tagged Palm Springs even though I made it pretty clear in my caption that I wasn’t at Coachella haha.

I did however spend over and hour last night watching Beyonce’s live stream performance on YouTube and I felt like I was there, in the comfort of my own home haha. LOVED IT! What an imaginative and original performance. She’s truely one of the best performers out there, if not the best.

Who wore your favourite outfit at Coachella? I want to do a round up of my favourite looks!

Should you wear a belt bag?

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!

Check yo’self

Sometimes you’ve just gotta run around chasing sunflowers and feeling cute in check pants and a pink jacket. If you haven’t noticed yet… checkered pants are all the rage! I went for a monotone kind of look with the blushes, whites and beige so the outfit wasn’t too ‘loud’ with anything too contrasty ie. if you were to wear a black boot and black jacket. If you want to look cute, yet subtle, but mainly cute try an outfit of all similar tones like this one. Makes wearing light coloured and printed pants more wearable.

Oh and these sunnies are from Sloane and I have a cheeky 40% discount for you the code is JESSIE40 – I’m loving their new slim line style.

Soft To The Touch

Guyyyssss I’m back! I had a short blog hiatus for no other reason than I was a little bit slack and I’m sorry but I’ve just been enjoying this never ending summer in Sydney! Seriously it’s April and it’s 30 degrees… now I don’t want to abuse climate change but it’s kind of nice. I’m so torn.

In other news, because of this seasonal disarray I’ve managed to get some awesome swimwear content including these soft as velvet swimmers from Seafolly. Now, I’m not sure if their sizing is small or if I’m getting bigger (very likely) but I’m wearing a size 10 in the top and 12 in the bottoms.

These sunnies I’ve been wearing to death, they’re from Sloane and I have a cheeky 40% discount for you the code is JESSIE40 – their new range is legit!!! I think I’ll be buying a few myself.

The perfect little tanning bikini – the strapless design won’t give you over the shoulder tan lines and if you decide to sit out in the sun just undo the sleeve straps for the perfect bandeau!

Seafolly Flashback Range

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.

Kopper and Zink Bikini

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.
