When I was growing up, jeans were a very functional part of my wardrobe. I wore them when the weather got too cold to wear shorts or dresses, and they were usually just casual pants that got thrown on with a sweater. What they were not was fashionable.
Summer is usually my favourite season. Long days, more ice cream, time with my family and Christmas mean I spend most of the rest of the year looking forward to it.
It must be said, I haven’t owned a backpack since my last day of school over 12 years ago. In the years since I’ve probably had Occassion to use every other type of bag known to man, but never a backpack.
When I first arrived on the Gold Coast at the tender age of 14, people would always say to me “you look like such a country girl”. It’s something that I’ve heard a lot over the years, and I’m yet to figure out why I give off this vibe.
I often look at the shows from fashion weeks around the globe and wonder to myself: are trends even really a “thing” anymore? There are military inspired collections alongside uber feminine pieces, pastels one show and dark, moody colours the next.
Everyone knows that fashion is ever-changing and every season will bring something new. I have to say that no one could be more pleased than I, that when summer clothes started appearing in stores there was a total absence of the neon trend that has plagued us for the past two summers.
