Accessories maketh an outfit!

You know how much I love doing a fashion shoot in Byron Bay because it's so beautiful and usually reliably sunny, hot and dry, with a big blue sky. So when East sent me some of my favourite accessories from their new Spring/Summer range, all the way from England, I got really excited about photography with a really beachy summery look for my blog. And guess what, the weather changed from Summer to Autumn overnight, blowing such a gale on the beach that we thought we were in Cornwall!

Back at my rental home, away from the beach, ended up a much safer bet!  I hope you like the gorgeous photography by Charlotte Coker of A Beautiful Weirdo. 

Details of everything I'm wearing are below. 

The gorgeous headscarf is the Blue Silk Shibori striped scarf £45, from East and has just been launched. I love it with this dress 'cause it goes so well with the blue in the pattern but is also so huge it could be worn many other ways if you don't fancy using it as a headscarf.

My summer dress is a lovely cotton Lazy Bones design (usually about $150) found for $50 in preloved clothes shop The Silver Lining, Mullumbimby.

The wicker cross body bag is also from East and will be available on April 6th, for £29. It's a perfect summer holiday bag and as light as a feather.

My vintage boots were found for a song at my favourite Byron Bay store, Trash Vintage & Retro Clothing.

And my vintage sunnies were gifted to me a long time ago & are original 50s frames.

Now that's what I call a fantastic outfit, with a vintage twist, that won't break the bank, at all! And what do you think of the purple tint to my hair that's gone a lovely rose pink?! Goes with the headscarf beautifully!

I hope you like my new finds and that they've inspired you to hunt out old or new outfits & style them up with some great accessories to bring them to life.  Finally, here's a video showing you how to tie this awesome scarf.


As usual, I would love to hear from you, especially if you have been shopping on-line for summer accessories or clothes!
