OH MY GOODNESS – ADELE
Were you lucky enough to go to the Gabba in Brisbane over the weekend? Have you already seen Adele in Perth?
Or if you haven’t been already, have you managed to nab tickets for Melbs, Sydney, Adelaide or NZ – if so, LUCKY YOU!
WOW. WOW. WOW.
I felt like each one of the 60,000 people in the stadium witnessed something very special on Saturday night.
Her performance gave me goosebumps.
Adele is a SUPERSTAR of the very normal variety.
No airs and graces, just a fabulously talented girl, who is witty, honest and totally endearing.
I’m sure every single person in the stadium felt like they wanted to sit and hangout with her. I know I sure did.
If you want to know what Adele is truly like, watch this video of her chatting and singing with James Corden while driving around London. While you’re at it watch all the James Corden carpool karaoke series – he is also amazing!
Yes we certainly made the right decision to get the tickets…well I’m using the ‘we’ in a very royal way. I did not in fact sit on the phone/online for hours when the tickets were released. No I can take no credit. Instead my fabulous (incredibly patient) girlfriend Andrea did. But that’s what friends are for right? Thanks Ange, love you x
I’m honestly not easily impressed when it comes to concerts – I have been to a few over the years.
In the UK we were never more than a short journey away from magnificent concert venues, which meant we often had tickets for a couple of concerts a year.
The more concerts you go to, the more you expect from them though.
What made this show so wonderful was Adele’s natural interaction with the audience. I left the stadium loving her just that bit more.
I appreciate that ticket prices for top artists can be on the heavy side BUT I felt Saturday night was worth every single dollar paid. Had there still been availability for the Sunday evening, I would have been more than happy to ‘splash the cash’ all over again.
Honestly, I have been a fan for years. Beckie introduced me to Adele’s first album ’19’ when it was released in the UK – she was almost catapulted to success overnight.
By the time ’21’ came out the world already loved Adele.

Now if the weather last Saturday night had in fact been behaving itself, instead of resembling the feeling of sitting directly over the hot coals in a bloody sauna – no exaggeration my friends, it was threatening a storm, which means HUMIDITY HELL I would have worn my new season Bohemian Traders JACKET.
You know how much of a fan I am of the humble jacket, right?
My love of jackets, holds no bounds.
Jackets take your favourite jeans and tee combo to another level. They also appeal massively to the lazy bugger inside of me – it’s the hero piece of clothing that can make you look polished in a flash.
As you know, I have a full bust which means I can hop between 12/14’s (M/L) all the time. At the moment I’m at my heaviest (why oh why did I stuff up my bloody hormones just before Christmas – shedding the extra kg’s is not as easy as I thought it would be 🙁 ) Anyway, I’m guessing I could have gone for the medium if I was sitting at my normal weight, so if you’re in between sizes maybe go for the smaller size.
Please note: I’m not one for buttoning up my jackets, if you have a full bust and want to fasten the buttons, then sizing down might not work for you.
Blazers (of the fabulous variety) are huge this season. A/W 17 is all about the statement blazer – thank goodness I’ve found mine!
If you are a complete BT #fangirl like me, you will have already spied this awesomeness, the moment the jacket landed online.
You will also have noticed, that its available in Black too.
What I love most about Bohemian Traders is how they offer colour alternatives.
Khaki is very much the colour for this A/W season. It’s also a muted shade that suits lots of different skin tones – making it extremely wearable and a great addition to your wardrobe.
The gold buttons and the nipped in cut at the waist, make this jacket both flattering and classic.
Yes of course, the black is the safe bet – but there is something so fabulously bang on trend and adventurous about the khaki too.
This jacket truly is classic styling at its’ best.
My all time favourite outfit would be skinnies, a great v-neck tee, a classic jacket and heels – nothing beats this look for me.
It was a staple in my English wardrobe – and one I would struggle to give up, even if I struggle to wear them for half of the year in the notorious QLD humidity.
When Beckie was growing up and experimenting with fashion, she was very much tempted by what her piers were wearing. It became a standard joke in our house, when she asked what she should wear to go out with friends, I would always say “jeans, a jacket and heels” – her response was Mumma I’m not you. I’m glad to say, this is exactly what she reaches for now for a crisp weekend A/W vibe. Her style is understated, elegant and totally classic.
Don’t be afraid to add a longer lightweight length top underneath a shorter jacket – this type of layering gives a very slimming allusion to your profile.
Now my mate Maudie has these Throwback Straight Leg Jeans in white. She loves the cute frayed hem (I might just add, her pins are to die for – much thinner and slightly longer than mine) so if you check out her Instagram feed (@istyle) you can compare the difference in how they look/sit on her. We’re both wearing the same size.
I plan to wear these jeans again tomorrow, but this time rolled so I can show you just how super versatile they are.
Also, if you struggle with larger calves but love the look of a boyfriend jean, the throwback jeans could be perfect for you. They are looser through the calf than a traditional cut boyfriend jean, yet you can still roll the hem for a more relaxed look.
Just imagine the possible outfit combinations available to you, if you just nail a few key pieces in your wardrobe.
Finding the right denim is crucial. Once you find denim you love (whether that be skinny, boyfriend or straight cut), buy it in dark indigo and black as a minimum. If you feel confident, also add a light wash and white too – white is still very wearable through winter – style it back with blush, camel or light grey for a look that oozes luxuriousness.
When shopping for jackets, remember a classic cut, is the key to longevity.
Look for jacket with exceptional tailoring with a slight shoulder pad for definition. I always recommend looking for jacket with shape. A bit of waist definition can only be a good thing right?
What’s your favourite Adele song?
Mine is ‘Someone Like You’ (penned from absolute heartbreak). Closely followed by ‘All I Ask’
