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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
