The white jean conundrum


TOP: The Fifth Label  |  JEANS: Dr Denim  |  LOAFERS: Ralph Lauren (similar HERE)  |  EARRINGS: Mimco  |  BRACELET: vintage (similar HERE)

White jeans can often be a tricky thing to style (my mum rarely wears them, thanks to the recurring image of Elizabeth Hurley sporting them in her particular way) so I chose to flip the look on its head with the addition of a masculine loafer, minimal jewellery and a high-neck black top - with some secret sassiness in the back. There's always room for sassiness.

Denim dream


DRESS: Boohoo  |  BAG: Boohoo (similar HERE)  |  SLIDES: Herm├Ęs (similar HERE)

Oh haaai new year! It's been so nice having a lil' social media break, but I'm sorry I neglected you guys! Now feast thine eyes upon me concealing a good portion of my body beneath heavy denim, because it is the last time you'll see anything of the sort for a good while. It is SO HOT in Sydney right now! I've been taking cold showers, only to find myself drenched in sweat by the time I finish my moisturising routine. But it does beat being cold, as I'm sure those of you currently procrastinating scraping the ice off your car windshields will agree!

Splash


SWIMSUIT: Ksubi via General Pants  |  SUNGLASSES: EPOKHE

I don't usually post swimwear-type photos because, 1) scary, 2) I'm not a model anymore, and 3) I'm allergic to chlorine pools and detest beaches with big waves, so I don't actually don swimwear that often. Buttt it's the end of 2016 - a true dumpster fire of a year - plus I've had a stressful few weeks and I think this new swimsuit is cute, all of which = YOLO.
On a less super serial note, all I want from a bathing suit/pair of underpants is a sick high-cut leg (but NOT a super high waist, because contrary to what everyone tells you, this is NOT flattering. When it comes to bikinis, the less fabric, the skinnier you look!) with nineties flavour, because I have a true nineties bod (slim, but not super bony; leggy with a short torso). I assumed that the recent aesthetic revival of the decade would result in an abundance of such styles, but no such luck. If anyone can point me in the right direction, this little piggy would be much obliged!
Okay, back to my panicked, last-minute holiday shopping. I can gift someone a copy of a book I've read if I read it really neatly, right?

Take a seat


TOP: Boohoo (similar HERE)  |  JEANS: Missguided  |  MULES: Missguided |  BRACELET: Mimco

I thought I'd have a casual sit on this cute stool to show off my breezy summer ~lewk~... But as usual, my height and gangliness know no bounds. Will I ever find the right stool for me? A girl can dream.
