A Change.

Dress - Quirky Circus by Mink Pink, Scarf- Cotton On, Hat - ThreeOfive, Belt - Pilgrim, Socks - Cotton On, Boots - Vera Wang (similar here)

If you've all been wondering where i've been over the past few weeks, the answer is here. Right here in my own little cafe. Thats right, all my own. My mother and i decided to take life in our own hands and do something exciting, so we opened a cafe. The Fox Hole Cafe and Providore in one of Tasmania's most popular country tourist towns. Every day i make coffee's and fresh cakes and pastries for people to enjoy while relaxing in this cosy little den. It's been a hard few weeks but it's an huge experience and i am treasuring every moment.
One of the best things about owning your own cafe? Wearing whatever i like. So a dress like this adorable quirky circus number is now a casual look for me. Dressed up with a few accessories and some long socks to keep my pale pegs warm in the Tasmanian winter when a wood fire isn't enough to keep the frost at bay.
Here's to trying new things, taking risks and living every opportunity that life sends your way.
Oh, and if you're ever in Sheffield, do stop by and say hello. I'd love to see you!

A/W Street Style with Cotton On

Coat - Cotton on, Jeans - Cotton On, Scarf - Cotton on, Tee - Cotton On, Hat - Masque Boutique, Boots - Vera Wang/Harris Scarf (similar here)

Firstly i want to apologize for my lack of posts lately, everything will be explained in my next blog post. But if you cant wait that long, head over to my YouTube channel where you can watch my latest vlog all about my current ventures.
Anyway... back to fashion. I've recently wandered into my local Cotton On store and loved 70% of what i've seen. This is rare for me, to love a great deal of a current seasons range. I found myself in the change rooms with clothes stacked high. I was ready to be disappointed. I'll be honest here and say i'll almost always love a piece of clothing on the rack but hate it as soon as i try it on. This wasn't the case. Not even in the slightest.
Well done Cotton On, you have bought out some pieces which are actually flattering to my body type- Curvy and tall-ish. This look is my new go-to when i head outdoors and need a break from that blistery Tasmanian wind.
If i would criticize at all on any part of the new collection at Cotton On, it would be that the jeans (the High Rise 7/8) stretch a fair bit and do loose their shape a little so if you're heading into a store any time soon perhaps buy the size smaller because they will give. I'll be giving these bad boys a hot wash to shrink a little so i'm not always pulling them up and looking like a massive dag.

I hope you are all enjoying any new sneaky purchases you've bought recently. Whats you're favourite this month? Comment below and share what you have been loving this May, i'd love to hear!
Happy Tuesday!


Gone with the Wind

I hope you all had an incredible Easter break and did eat the entirety of your chocolate stash, like myself. (my waist line will be feeling that one very soon!)
As the summer weather draws to an end and autumn starts to poke her head around the tree which has started to fade from green to yellow to orange i find myself wandering more and more along the beaches around where i live, grateful for the close proximity to such a beautiful place. Not wanting to let go of the sunshine quite yet i've taken to the long maxi's again. Long enough to keep my legs warm while still trying to get a little tan. This stunner of a piece is from Her Fashion Box which i have been absolutely lusting over for the past few months. I do suggest you look into it too, if you love a little surprise in your post box every month. If i didn tmove around so often i would subscribe in a second, let me tell you now!

In other news i have been spending all of my time and energy into a huge project which i cant wait to share with you all in the next week or so. Remember you can stay updated through my social media, links will be below. (plus you can also catch me on snapchat these days with the username jessieemilyb)


My new style obsession: The White Blouse

There's nothing i like more than waking up before the sun and strolling along the beach at low tide, and watching the glorious sunrise blasting through gloomy stormy clouds. 
i know this is something you all know by now but i simply cannot get enough of the seaside. That's why instead of packing up all my belongings and heading to France/England like i have been dreaming of for the past few years i instead headed to the beach to start a new and hopefully relaxing year. Maybe next year i'll find myself in Brighton, England. (We can dream, right?)

Blouses are featuring more and more on JessicaEmily.net but i really cant get enough of this timeless classic. One of every shape, size and colour would be just fine with me.  The beautiful shoulder details in this Petal Shirt from Frank and Louis boutique is a current favourite of mine. In all my messy hectic week this is what's making me still feel foolishly happy. Can you blame me? 

Because i love you all so much i have teamed up with Frank and Louis boutique to give you a 15% discount off their entire store with the code "jess". You're welcome!
But do make sure you make the most of that awesome discount because there is seriously some incredibly gorgeous pieces on their site. To shop the site head www.frankandlouis.com

Now.... to kick back and relax. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

How to relax

As i sit here writing this i have Ludovico Einaudi's 'Fairytale' playing in the background and a million voices playing in my head. With so many things going on in my life at the moment i've struggled to make sense of it all.
I've struggled to relax, to find a moment to myself where my mind would stop working enough for me to see clearly.
A trip to the beach was clearly in order. Sunshine, florals and maybe a sneaky ice cream (or two).

Todays blog post features some glorious prints from Quirky Circus, who after revealing their winter collection have gotten me very excited for the cooler months. I mustn't jump the gun here though, it's still summer and i plan to milk it for all the sunshine that its worth. We all know that a printed maxi skirt is a wardrobe essential and trust me girl, if you dont already have one i suggest you treat yo self to one. This little beauty gave me the chance to bare a little skin with the side slit and although i'm now a little sunburnt on only one leg i feel it was completely worth it!
Paired with a gorgeously pale blue top also by Quirky Circus, one might agree that they were made for each other.

The song tempo has just changed to something a little softer and i find myself wanting to sit back and soak it up the tunes. I think i've finally learnt how to relax, and i think it's at the beach... with ice cream.

Get the look: Country Chic

I've always found dressing for the country to be a little bit tiresome. Too many "I want to wear those but they'll get dirty" and opting for something brown or black. I've just recently gotten to the point where i just dont give a sh*t and wear what i really want to wear, no matter the colour. That's what a washing machine is for, right?
Because most people in the country don't dress to impress i've found that going over the top is a no-no (unless you want everyone looking at you thinking 'what the.....'). Choose the focus piece of your outfit and simplify it with plainer pieces. Look at this outfit that i wore the other day for example, bright pink pants paired with a white tank and white shoes. Finished off with a not-too-loud coat incase the wind picks up which of course it did, i'm in Tasmania duh!

Charlie my new puppy decided that this was the perfect outfit to jump all over (typical) so these pieces are now sitting in my laundry waiting to be washed. I don't mind so much though, i enjoyed wearing it and that's all that matters, right?

Checking in: Life Update

Happy Friday!
As i write this post i sit here, sucking mindlessly on a banana paddlepop (a personal favourite) savouring the few minutes i have to sit down and semi-relax. 
To say that the past few weeks have been busy is a massive understatement. I am currently at a crossroads in my life and trying to work out exactly what or where to take my next step. At the moment i'm trying to start up a family business (Tanda Hill Farm and Bake House- can you imagine me in the kitchen baking fancy pastries?!) with my mother in the hope that the family can run it and have a very happy and successful future career. Let me tell you, trying to start a business is hard work but i'm not complaining. We live, we learn, we make a heck of a lot of mistakes, spend far too much money on coffee to keep ourselves away and at the end of the day we come away from it either very happy and successful or with a few new lessons learnt. 
A few days ago i had a free afternoon so i popped down the road to Lake Barrington- i know, how lucky am i to only live down the road from THIS incredible place. 
Lazy afternoons obviously call for sun tanning, light slip dresses and a dip in the lake. All at once, of course! 

I'm not too sure how this venture will play out but i do know i'm going to give it my best shot. I'm off this weekend to the Evandale Market to try and sell some yummy pieces. If you're around the state then do pop by, but for now i have some cookies in the oven that are beginning to smell a little over-cooked. Oops!

Have a fantastic weekend!
