It’s been too long since my last blog post but it’s only because I’ve been overseas and it’s been a week since I’ve been back so I’m only just getting back into it now that I have set up my new Macbook since mine was stolen overseas! So much drama but everything is good now
This week I went out to Bondi (as per usual) for a coffee and to catch up with my team on projects for the next few months. In this look for our meeting I’m wearing Tony & Will watch, my favourite new black and rose gold watch with a big, beautiful face. I love watches with bigger faces, it’s more of a statement and the black and rose gold combo is gorgeous, masculine and feminine at the same time.
I thought I had abandoned all signs of skinny jeans, this is until I go to try the new Jeanswest Super Skinny Jeans collection. The denim is sourced from Turkey and stretches 4-ways which means they stretch up, down, left and right so there’s no option of discomfort and they don’t lose their shape. It’s a nice mid-rise for those who aren’t really into full high rise and because nobody should be wearing low-waisted jeans anymore! They’re so unflattering! So please give these bad boys a try if you’re looking at getting a pair of BA skinny jeans that will last you forever.
One of the latest trends we’ve been seeing off the runway is the corset belt, most notably at Prada where we saw lace up midriff corsets layered over coats and shirts giving fresh life to innerwear as outerwear. I love the lingerie inspired corset belt being utilised in a layered, cool girl capacity rather than looking suggestive.
Here I’ve styled it over an oversized mesh tee and thrown over an oversized open shirt to give the trend an androgynous, sporty, lazy look with the black and white sports inspired stiletto boots. I posted an instagram wearing it over a jumpsuit and under a pink duster to show how else it can be styled. Other ways would be right over the oversized button up shirt with thigh high boots. Get creative and you’ll look like the ultimate cool girl at your next soiree.
A little bit of metallic highlight can amp up your #athleisure OOTD because we all know that only 30% of the people* in Sydney (specifically Bondi/ Surry Hills/ Paddington) are actually exercising in their gear. Here I’m wearing my fave silk track pants from Grana with my silver metallic capped white leather sneakers with big ‘F**k Off’ sunnies just to add drama with the earrings. Sports luxe/ Atheleisure whatever you want to call it is meant to be comfy and laid back but don’t limit yourself to capri yoga leggings and a tank top so have some fun with it!
Keeping it neutral with a grey silk cashmere tee from Grana, it’s lightweight and oversized so not too hot but would be perfect for winter as well. I’m wearing a size XS but if you prefer to wear things looser through the arms I’d get a size or two up, I don’t see the body size changing too much. It’s perfect for the lazy tuck, full tuck or fully untucked – this is the beauty of drapery fabrics.
I’ve paired it with a pair of high waisted pinstripe loose leg shorts because it’s been so hot lately and this style of short is perfect for the season & not overheating! as well as these gorgeous leather gladiator sandals which are soo comfy.
I hope you’ve achieved lots in the first half of the first month of the new year… I know I have!
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!
Going into December I’m going to be rolling out some fun videos for you including Christmas gift ideas and even fun things to spoil yourself with (haha because let’s be honest we all kind of do!) Like this cute bag I picked up in Bali, surprisingly it fits alot and I’ve gotten so many comments on it while away and on my instagram so I wanted to share with you all where to pick one up for summer as it’s perfect for the beach!
All black with accents of gold and beige for the first day of summer. I am in love with this little tote bag with it’s removeable palm tree and tassle, it can make your outfit cute and fun or remove it and it’s perfect for the office. Also, I’m never taking off this pineapple ring and ring choker – the new ‘it’ accessories for summer. That’s why I always love checking out Colette by Colette Hayman because they have the coolest styles at such an affordable price! Also how amazing is this low back halter top, would also look amazing dressed up with a mini skirt or bodycon midi skirt with heels or dressed down with denim cut offs. So many options!
Hi Guys, just thought I’d update you on what’s going on in my life: this week is particualry stressful. On the weekend I was too excited to gram and walked into the ocean without looking where I was going and walked onto a rock covered in oysters so I really did a number on my foot and am now hobbling my life away like a 87 y/o grandma. I’m dumb, lesson learnt.
This was a great week for that to happen as I’m moving out of my apartment that I’ve been in for over four years right before I’m going to Bali for two weeks. So needless to say I’m going to be on my feet for the next 3 weeks! Yay for me. Yay for not healing.
The next few days will be full of packing, packing, shooting, packing and moving and unpacking and packing and then flying. I’m usually quite into going to the gym right before I have a tropical getaway however I don’t think I’ll be able to be on my feet for much more of the day so I don’t know how that’s going to pan out…
Despite all of this I’ve realised I have so many amazing friends in my life who have volunteered to help a little ‘ol me pack up, move, drive and just be there for moral as well as physical support. Makes me so happy
So here’s to you guys! *raises non-alcholic glass of something because I’m not drinking right now since I can’t go to the gym and work out*
I’m just gonna put it out there… I’m a bit bikini obsessed. I love a good quality bikini and that includes the perfect little black one piece bikini that should be staple in everyone’s beach wardrobe. I’m going to talk you through your options and what’s best for your bust shape.
Smaller chest: Your traditionally trained stylist with tell you to go for something with ruffles or bows or something that has embellishment on the chest to accentuate your bust. To me that’s fine, but personally I am a much more minimal bikini wearer and I don’t ever wear bows or frills on anything. I would embrace not having a ridiculous amount of cleavage and opt for a super low cut bikini like this one which has padding in it. The beauty of not having out there cleavage means you can get away with this style without looking slutty. Another alternative is a style with a alot of panel detailing on the bust. Super fashion forward.
Bigger Chest: I’d say I fall into this category (being a DD) and although I love the high neck style it actually doesn’t make your chest look smaller or flatter your bust, but in fact tends to make it look bigger with more of a monoboob vibe. Unless that’s the look you’re going for then I’d suggest a low cut style, but not too low cut (because from experience your boobs fall right out!). I love backless styles and if you don’t feel like you need the ‘support’ then give this style a go but there are also plenty of one-piece styles that have the in-built bra with a much more conservative back.
Somewhere in between: You’re the babes that can get away with any of the above. Try a balconette style or one of these sexy front zip bikinis which you can adjust to whatever mood you’re in <insert winky face>
