THE BEST JEANS

"IN THE RIGHT JEANS A GIRL CAN CONQUER THE WORLD".

I feel like as women we are always on the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans and sometimes it can be a tricky job! There are so many bloody options out there and that it can make it quite a tedious job to tackle. The decision making process after trying on numerous styles that just don’t fit right or make you look well a bit shitty have led me to give up trying at times.

I know these jeans I have found from Glassons won’t be for all of us as we all love a different kind of fit, style, colour, no rips, rips so on and so forth. But I still wanted to share these goodies as I love them a whole a lot. I have now worn them a good few days in a row.. sorry not sorry but I wear them to death.

They are the kind of jean that fit your butt really nicely but not too tightly. You knows those ones that are so tight that you struggle to sit down comfortably.. no one wants to do the awks lay down/sit down to just get into a seat.. as funny as it is to watch. These bad boys also fit nice and loosely from the knee down with just the right amount of distressed bits that it doesn’t look like you’ve been attacked by a wild animal.

THE WINTER COAT

www.jeskaalee.com

Now living on the Gold Coast some may say we don't exactly get a 'Winter'.. but I don't think that should stop us from wearing Winter inspired clothing. We just need to know how to style them back with our less cozy pieces so we aren't sweating bullets having coffee by the beach in the sun.. Am I right!?

I feel the key to making a coat or trench work in our climate is being able to wear it in different ways whether it be around your waist, over your shoulders or actually putting your arms in (thats the most practical way if you don't want to lost your jacket running across the road..just sayin' from experience!). 

Depending on your own style I have hand picked a bunch of key pieces for this post created by the just launched Noise Maker (or insta @noisemakeraust) at the newly renovated Pacific Fair on the Gold Coast. I am a sucker for a camel trench and I feel no matter the weather or where you live you should always have one on your wardrobe.. it goes with everything!!

THIGH HIGH BOOTS

www.jeskaalee.com

The one day out of my recent trip to Sydney I decided to wear my new Tres Jole thigh high boots it was absolutely freezing..I felt like I was standing in front of an air-conditioner when I walked out of my hotel onto the street. I later found out it was one of the coldest days on record in about two decades..(good work Jess).

Unfortunately the flu I now have would suggest it wasn't the most logical decision I have ever made but sometimes fashion comes before logic, especially when you love your new boots as much as I do and didn't want to pass up a photo shoot in the city. I also used the cold weather and my decision not to dress warm enough as an excuse to buy a new scarf at H&M.. (which I might add had so much more variety in the city compared to the new one on the coast here.)

On a smarter note the boots are an extremely versatile having a mid sized heel; which meant running around the city finding beautiful locations wasn't a worry. I also love that they can be styled with much more than a skirt on these cold days we have recently had thrust upon us. I paired them back with black jeans, black turtle neck and my black leather jacket for a sleek all black errrythang look a few days ago and felt amazing!

H&M STUDIO SS16

www.jeskaalee.com

Has anyone else felt as though they may melt in this Gold Coast heat wave lately? The intense humidity currently has me craving a little bit of that cooler Winter weather.. I cannot wait to get snuggly in knits and layering outfit pieces, plus pulling out some trenches that have been sitting in my cupboard all Summer. I am also feeling that I will be wearing a lot of neutral and softer tones paired back with basics of black, white and grey.. although knowing me I'll change my mind by the time Winter shows face and I'll be running around in bright yellow (haha).

On another note I am very excited to style these two beautiful pieces featured from H&M's Studio SS16 collection which launches tomorrow (25th of February).. I am equally excited that a physical store will be opening in the newly refurbished Pacific Fair in the coming months too (Eeeek) look out bank account!

DRESS IN CONFIDENCE

WHAT TO WEAR TO AN EVENT WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW THE DRESS CODE


Have you ever been invited to an event, birthday or an interview and you feel unsure (cue freak out) as to what the dress code is. You have a feeling it is cocktail but then it could be casual..but if you dress casually and turn up and everyone is dressed up you feel out of place and can't enjoy yourself to the fullest..I have felt that exact way and occasionally do still have a few mini freak outs..because sometimes it is stressful being a girl and knowing what to wear.

I recently attended the launch of the new Audi A4 at The Garden located at Jupiter's Hotel on the Gold Coast with my gal pal Megan. There was no specific dress code detailed on the invitation so we were left to come up with this ourselves.. Sometime's it can be refreshing having freedom to dress how you want to but other times it can leave you a little stressed/hoping you don't turn up looking completely out of place.

Some things I like to think of when styling an outfit for an event with no clue as to how to dress..

  • What type of event is it? When you know the type of event and who it is hosted by you can do some research on the brand, company or host to get an idea of what they encompass as a brand and therefore lead to an insight to the feel of the event.
  • Where is the event located? Location is a big help.. when you know the location you can also research the venue.. check out past images via instagram or Facebook and see what the vibe is.
  • What time of year is it? Dress to the season.. and also if you find out the event may be indoors you could style your outfit back with a blazer, jacket or long sleeves.
  • Will you have to do much walking? Sometimes fashionable shoes aren't practical when you may have to do a lot of walking to and from or during an event so try your best to wear something comfortable if you know this. If it's a standing event you have a little more leeway when wearing your favorite heels.

When you figure these few things out it can be a easier to decide what will be appropriate for the occasion. For me I feel most importantly you want to feel comfortable in what you wear, so don't ever feel pressured to dress a certain way to suit an event.. if you feel you want feel good in what you are wearing that is the key to owning the outfit and feeling confident in it!
