2Threads, in conjunction with much-loved surf label Billabong, asked if I’d like to offer some styling tips for the beach and summer fashion. I grew up living by the beach here in Melbourne but despite this, I’ve never really been very summer-oriented in terms of my styling. I guess I just love winter layering too much! So I put together a few flat lays of some different summer looks – one is more music festival, one is more everyday casual and one is for the beach. All however, could easily be mixed, matched and worn universally for these occasions!

I just had to show a close-up of this beautiful handmade necklace that my lovely friend Jacqui makes. You can have any message you like added to the glass bottle, and in my case I chose the words, “Blackbird singing in the dead of night”.
The last look, my beach look, is probably my fave. All that is missing is a pair of cats eye sunglasses and I love that it so easily transcends from day to night just by adding a pair of heels and a camisole rather than a bikini (I’m afraid I wasn’t brave enough to photograph this look in bathers!)
Hopefully the weather here will pick up and I’ll actually be able to wear some of these styles outside the house! xx
