Pink hair, don’t care

These are just a few snaps from my birthday weekend at Splendour In The Grass 2014. As a first time festival go-er I had absolutely zero idea about what people wore, what was acceptable to wear (bring an occasion dresser at heart) or how I should dress for the weather. But I decided to stick with my guns and go with what I know best when I don’t know what to wear: Comfort, and pink hair!

When I laid my eyes on these Novella Royale bell bottoms from Free People, I couldn’t help but feel the need to instantly shimmy my way back into the summer of love. Unsure how to wear such a bold (for me) print and silhouette, I had to do what felt right… and that meant throwing on a hugely oversized stripy top and hoping for the best.

Et viola…. If you can’t match it, clash it.

So I know the charm in these Celine spired decks by lord blogger babe Stop It Right Now is in the colour, but I can’t help with how much I’m in love with it in black and white.

I nabbed up two of her decks (does anyone have the third green one they want to sell me?) back in 2011 and they have since lived on a lot of walls in a lot of houses. I figured I’d use them in a shoot given I could never afford any of the actual Celine prints from that season. A chic alternative, no?

I am undecided as to whether the occurrence of this post is serendipitous or just a case of perfectly poetic irony. Either way, it’s a story that makes me smile.

It all begins with your typical bare-foot childhood in the leafy suburb of Hawthorne, Brisbane. The local fish and chip shop was the hangout. We patrolled the streets on our BMX bikes and spent lazy summer days under the jacaranda tree at the park by the river. Somewhere between mud fights, grazed knees and countless games of tiggy, there was a boy named Benjamin Ringuet who lived one street over from me. But our paths never quite seemed to cross.

Though they came very close.

Ben and I went to the same primary school. He hung out at the same fish and chip shop as me and spent countless hours at the corner store in my street deliberating over the very same $0.30 lolly bags that I did. He even lived right across the road from the front gates of my highschool and was in the same circle of friends with all of my mates in our brother school. But it wasn’t until university when I was interning as a PR agency that Ben and I met, albeit briefly, I spied one of his dresses on a rack and I was enchanted. We  met in passing. I had a feeling I knew who he was, and he shared same sentiment.

Fast forward a few more years, I keep seeing his creations pop up in my Instagram feed, and just as Ben and I had grown up, so had his designs. They’re clean and sophisticated, but still exude a sense of fun, paying homage to the playful childhood we didn’t know we shared some years ago.

A girl can’t help but feel super chic and sexy in one of Ben’s designs. I had the pleasure of trying on much of the latest collection and you immediately get the sense that Ben knows the female body better than most women. His cuts tenderly pre-empt every curve, gently skimming over peaks and webs to create a smooth, flattering silhouette no matter your body shape. Here is my take on the Balaclava Signature Dress and it’s safe to say, we’re officially all grown up.

Excited to announce that I’ll be regularly contributing to the Free People Bldg 25 Blog. While you’re at it checking out their amazing blog, make sure you follow @freepeopleaustralia as we kick things off Down Under! 

I am forever inspired by California but Australia is what I call home. I’m originally from a small beach town in Queensland, Australia. I moved to the big city for university, tried my hand at an even bigger city for work but decided that back by the sea is where I feel most like me.

My days revolve around the world outside my window and the ocean below my balcony. I rise with the sun and thirst for salt and sand. When I’m not at my laptop writing, styling, editing shoots, planning trips away or working for clients, I’m outside surfing, taking off in the van with my boyfriend, listening to my dad’s old records, or practicing yoga.
