One sunny day this week snuck in between the rainy ones and we got a gloriously hot & beautiful day. On this day I layered my favourite silk shirt from Grana over my new bustier from Naran as well as gorgeous grey leather mini skirt from Kookai. I love mixing plains with details such as lace and this gorgeous metal detailing on my new metal bag from St Xavier, it’s more subtle than clashing prints but still makes a statement.
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.
I admit most people don’t have as many bikinis as I do, but if you’re going to invest in one, it has to be a little black bikini. I love a good, supportive fit, made from good fabric like this one from All Sisters and below I’ve put together a slideshow of some others I also recommend.
Dusty Rose is easily one of my favourite colours this season, it’s not a baby pink, not a mauve but a very specific tone of pink which will transition from summer into autumn perfectly. Also, if you haven’t found yourself jumping onto the velvet band wagon yet please let this dusty pink cami be your segway. Glassons also carry this gorgeous pink crushed velvet slip dress which I styled on my insta here. I saw the cami and dress and although almost the same I needed both haha don’t judge. But with such affordable prices why not!? My favourite part about collecting so much dusty pink over the season is that I can style it all together. I love the duster with the cami and bag – don’t be afraid to double or triple up your colour scheme because it really stands out.
I love roses, I love mom jeans and I love embroidered denim… so these jeans scream ‘me’ right now haha. I put these epic mom jeans together with my 90′s inspired double crop top duo, a crushed velvet cami over a white fitted tee. Layered over that is a velvet necklace with crystal from Samantha Wills. To keep it summer and basic I had chucked on my favourite slides of the season and signature round sunnies. There’s no better way than getting good use out of basics by layering them and putting them with denim.
There’s something about blue and tan being worn together, it’s such a perfect combo. I’m labelling this as the cutest summer outfit I’ve put together this whole season! (big call but not actually important) It must be a combination of the colours, the a-line mini skirt, the little peplum top that’s layered over it and these gorgeous leather gladiator sandals. Add big round sunnies for dramatic effect.
Hope you’re all having the best start to February!
A relaxed little number for day to night. And I don’t mean office to night I mean go out for arvo drinks which turn into the night lol. I have paired this plunging crop top with these textured shorts because sometimes you’re not in the mood for a figure hugging pencil skirt or jeans just aren’t high enough! (a girl’s gotta eat and I don’t want any unsolicited rolls!). As a safety net & an element of casualness I’ve added my favourite go-to silk button up as a cover up. Because it’s silk it’s gorgeously drapes over your shoulders without it looking corporate and if it were to get chilly in the night then just wear it open and roll up the sleeves a couple times.
Green bikinis are one of those things this season that everyone is jumping onto. Well when I say green it’s more olive or khaki, a natural green. I love this colour because as we go into the middle of the summer season your tan is a little deeper and the khaki colour will really compliment your skin tone. I naturally have an olive undertone in my tan but I believe no matter what tone your skin is it can pull off this gorgeous bikini colour.
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!
You all know that 6 out of 7 of my outfits in a week will revolve around a pair of jeans and t-shirt. So in efforts to mix it up I have picked up these sick embroidered jeans and cute little “No Thanks” tee to match back with my gorgeous silver bits and peices I picked up from Aletheia Phos.
I love the gorgeous details on the silver jewellery and how easy everything is to wear with literally any outfit. Anything from their range would be a stunning gift for someone special this Christmas. My personal favourite is the I Carry Your Heart Ring. It’s a fun, new take on a heart, being more literal than figurative. Genius if you ask me! As sometimes when I wear love hearts I feel a little cutesy and girly. Which also goes back to my tee, it’s a love heart, but also a little bit of a “Yeah, nah, not interested” hahah.
