Laced Up

I’m in that internal battle of all these cute Autumn clothes coming out like long sleeve tops and boots but I’m still holding onto summer clothes, like these denim cut offs. I can’t let go of summer! Is it obvious? That being said – it is about 30 degrees everyday and the thought of putting on jeans is physically painful because of the humidity, imagine pulling denim over sweaty legs – real life issues here, my friends. Why even are winter clothes even in stores? Can everyone please just stop and wait for the cold weather to catch up please? LOL

I’m just gonna throw it out there and say that I think one piece swimsuits are the new sexy. The high cut of these bottoms, low back of the top and high neck are all the perfect design for a sexy, classy bikini. You should try a full piece swimsuit if you’re looking to stay sexy but maybe you also wanna eat at that pool BBQ haha.

This look is a dress is disguise – a top and shorts to be precise… oh the magic of separates. I have worn this top with so much else, denim shorts, pants, skirts and the outfit looks completely different every time. The waist tie doesn’t even have to always go around the front. So invest in your separates to stretch out your wardrobe, ladies!

It’s no secret I spend all my spare time at the beach so it just felt right to hit up the ocean when shooting my new fave baby blue jeans from A brand. The fit is perfect and it’s great for the short chicks like me. Okay, maybe they’re meant to be ankle grazing but it works out as normal for me lol.

Something I’ve learnt in my short time of working for myself is that noone but yourself can motivate you or build your business. If you want to achieve something you need to get your head in the game. That website isn’t going to design itself, that post isn’t going to write itself nor is that body going to get fit on it’s own. 

Surrounding yourself with likeminded people isn’t a new concept but it’s something I’ve learnt first hand - it can make or break your goals. If you want to start a business don’t keep hanging out with that person who has no ambition. If you want to get fit don’t get into a relationship with someone who only wants to eat donuts and watch netflix. Simple. Yet so not simple. And that’s ok. I’d recommend focussing your energy on what your goals are in life (if you don’t have any, then get some) and if there’s someone in your life who is a heavy influence on your daily decisions or brings you down mentally perhaps consider phasing out their negative energy (that’s a nice way of saying get rid of them… I’m only looking out for you, babes & I’m also taking my own advice).

It’s been a busy week in the world of Fashion and Sounds - I’ve got a kick ass mix tape to share with you soon & a few new collabs on the horizon. In this look I’ve put together my staple colours of navy, black grey and forest green together because why not. I’m still kicking it in the thigh highs because it’s chilly but not too chilly for the sweater on kinda vibe if you dig.

Being a BNKR girl means supporting Aussie businesses & I’m a huge believer in supporting local designers so I’ve teamed up with the girls at BNKR to give you all 20% off their online store* with the code JESSIE20.

Sometimes when I wear a tight white crop top I don’t always wanna wear something tight on the bottom so I’ve styled it with a pair of cropped trousers to even out the proportions & to feel less hoochy for a day to night look. I added the leather jacket, bag & mules detail because I’m still grunge at heart.

In my last post I spoke about what I did day to day and vaguely what I’ve done to get to where I am today. I got a huge response via comments and emails and I’m really stoked I shared it. This is honestly why I got into this industry in the first place, to help out those around me – build them up and build the community. I love the blogosphere and the friends I’ve made along the way.

In addition to my last post another way I believe you’ll gain traction through your blog or to get into the industry is by networking. You need to engage with your audience, other bloggers and with those around you. The honest truth is that likes are free - why are people holding onto them like they’re currency? I don’t see the point in being stingy when it comes to liking a pic, it can make someone’s day and I mentioned before that it shouldn’t be about competing with one another but building each other up. This is a simple but necessary mentality I hope that this generation can grasp a hold of.

Even better is that it’s the middle of winter and I’m wearing a romper on the beach – didn’t even have to photoshop goosebumps out because it was actually warm. I love Sydney. <insert grateful hands emoji>
