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!

Little White Dress

Minkpink Dress | Pared Sunglasses (black hereclear here) | Public Desire Booties (similar here) | Fawn Star Necklace (similar here and here) | YSL Bag


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.

Oversized Tee Dress

One of the best dresses this summer in my very humble opinion is the oversized tee dress, This one’s from Tobi. I love wearing these dresses street style with boots and a leather jacket when it’s cold enough or to the beach with slides and a cap. They’re perfect for that casual summer look… or when you know you’re going to have a big lunch lol. Opt for a stripe or a tee with a logo on the front so it doesn’t look like you’re just wearing your boyfriend’s pj tee out with no pants that you slept in the night before.

Seamless Black Bikini

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.

The Perfect Beach Bag

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.

Denim mini

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.

Glassons Road Trip

I got to spend the day with three of my favourite girls, Helen, Ash and Kiara for Glassons… we went on a fun road trip up to Palm Beach and got to cruise with this amazing vintage 1950s Chevvy! I had such an amazing time and I never take for granted that I get to do the things I love with the best girls around me!

In this look I’m wearing my fave Glassons denim shorts, a lace racer back bralette and layered over it I’ve got this awesome oversized mesh top. Mesh tees are the biggest things right now, they’re perfect for summer because you can layer over bikinis, bralettes as well as singlet tops and it looks different every time. I have it tied up but it also looks great tucked in or undone just hanging over a pair of mom or skinny jeans and sneakers for a more tom boy look.

So get yourself into Glassons because they have literally every style of clothing you need and you can get a whole outfit for under $100!

Feeling the Street

Last weekend I got the pleasure of jumping on board the Corroboree, a super yacht on Sydney’s Harbour to celebrate Toyota’s Feeling The Street Campaign. This campaign involves thousands of entrants all over the world who are performing on street corners and alleyways with a huge passion for music. I got the pleasure of meeting the winners of the competition and their joy for performing and making music was infectious.

What I love most is that the musicians were so global, they have come from India, Brazil, Italy, Chile and Colombia to create this band which worked so well together. Check out the youtube video and keep an eye out for the music video that was also filmed on the yacht! (Maybe you’ll be able to spot me!)

My blog is ‘Fashion and Sounds’ for a reason, I’ve always loved discovering new, young musical talent and with so many cultures included in this band I’m so honoured to be a part of the first steps of their journey and good luck to the team and thank you to Toyota for allowing me to be a part of this.

Kim’s Beach Hideaway

I got a two storey villa right on Toowoon Bay Beach, literally metres from the crashing waves.

The entire experience is beautiful from the delightful staff, the amazing buffet meals, dual showers, spas, the comfiness of the king sized bed to the ease we had getting to and from the beach.

We were truly blessed by the gorgeous weather we had as well! So thank you to the team at Kim’s I can’t wait to go back.
