The Look: A Million Miles From Coachella

If you've been glued to fashion week coverage like a dry leaf to wet cement, I'm with you! New trends are on the way, but there is one current trend that is truly here to stay; and that's 70s Bohemia. If you want to keep your look simple, embrace the dippy-hippy vibe through retro accessories and funky-printed pieces. If you'd wear it to Coachella, then you're on the right track... And me? Well, I dress like I'm off to Coachella every single day...

 


 
Dress: Cotton On (Similar Here)
Lace-up flats: Rubi Shoes (Similar Here)
Sunglasses: Jeepers Peepers
Watch: Daniel Wellington
Bracelet: Lovisa (Similar Here)
Bag: Local Market

Although my wardrobe will never resemble the Kardashian Clan's, my love for body-con is growing and this burgundy, knit dress makes me feel super confident. Having once sworn to never wear anything tight, this confidence still feels a bit odd.

I think it's important to invest in pieces that make us feel confident; after all: life is too short to feel rubbish about ourselves. I, however, need to practice what I preach.

As a matter of fact, whilst shooting these photographs, a group of girls my age walked past, sneering and laughing. It hurt.

Trying to hold back all the negative 'oh my gosh.. do I look fat/ugly/stupid' thoughts', I stopped myself and thought; 'what would you say to someone else who had these thoughts?' Seriously, why should we let the silly opinions of complete strangers bother us so much? It really disappointing me how women see the need to tear each other apart. Anyway: Rant over!

Let's all compliment someone today and help them grow their confidence.

Spice Girl-style girl power is not dead, it just needs a few more sparks to start the fire.

  6. That's a great way to look at it! We would all tell someone else to be confident and don't let the opinions of others bring you down - so why not tell ourselves the same thing? I get a bit awkward in front of the camera as it is so I'm sure I would've felt even more "off" if that scenario happened to me. Still, I don't get why they would laugh you look great!

  13. You look like a super model.. Eyes are bugging out my head currently! Seriously gorgeous. I love the lace-up flats that are so in right now as well. As for the ugly/fat comments, sigh. I had the hardest time with those for the longest time. It wasn't until I realized saying that about myself in front of younger girls would make them think it was OK. I'm glad to hear you had a similar experience. Once you remove that entirely from your vocabulary I think you attract like minded individuals ;)

  26. I do think we all fall victim to letting people's opinions get the better of us, but like you said, we wear whatever the hell makes us confident, and we strut it. Laughing girls and rude comments be DAMNED because you look amazing! Bodycon dresses for the win!
