Embrace your weird, your unique ways, all the imperfect perfection that makes you who you are. You are all magnificent souls, one of a kind.

This has to be one of my favourite outfit posts, as I had the chance to wear a whole lot of one off pieces. My treasured elephant tee that I picked up from Crossroads Trading Co. on my last vintage shopping spree in Santa Cruz. My amazing worldly jewels from Child of Wild, with their history and stories. The beautiful one of a kind belt and clutch from Rossio Roos. I could stare at the intricate designs on these pieces forever. So much texture and colour, and patterns to inspire. Many of my rings were collected from flea markets and antique stores on my travels. I get such a kick out of stacking them all together to create something entirely new and unique each time I finish off an outfit.

It was a truly beautiful afternoon of changing light and changing moods. As the beach cooled and afternoon became evening, I layered my outfit with an awe inspiring kimono from Spell Designs. A favourite Byron bay based brand of mine, producing conscious clothing/jewelry with so much soul.

Here’s to having the courage to authentically and openly share who we are with the world, in whatever way, shape or form that may manifest. To allow ourselves to simply be, to replace judgement and fear with love and acceptance. Our experience of the world will surely blossom in the most beautiful of ways.

So much love and gratitude,

Helen xx
