Over recent years Byron Bay have been known for their effortlessly cool and beachy vibes. The laid-back attitude coming from the small costal town in New South Wales makes it impossible not to fall in love with. In the lead up to my visit to Byron Bay in August, I have been obsessing over the bohemian style clothing seen there. Spotted amongst the chaos in Byron Bay are influencers such Mimi Elashiry, Cartia Mallan and model, Ingrid Wiliams.
Inspired by the these influencers, I have concluded that the ultimate Byron Bay uniform is a classic graphic tee and wide leg pants (Bonus points if they are denim)! Minimal accessories have been added however, I paired some brown mules to a make the outfit just a little bit more wearable!
In other exciting news, it is school holidays! Super exciting, so remember to add me on snapchat (@reneenotrenae) to follow me on all my little adventures!
As a participate of numerous musicals and player of instruments including piano and guitar, music has played a large role in my life.
Recently, my playlist has been ever evolving with a growing number of hip hop artists. This includes Australian/ New Zealand artists such as Seth Sentry and Ry, amongst the likes of A$AP Rocky and Chance the Rapper. Mind you mixed upon these are artists that produce completely different music! Nathan Hawes and Ziggy Alberts are two other creators of music in which I been playing on repeat!
A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege to attend work experience at Australian Fashion Labels (AFL). For you who don’t know, AFL are responsible for creating labels such as C/MEO, The Fifth, Finders Keepers, and Keepsake. During my time there, I got to met some incredible people, doing some amazing things. They were designing and shooting, and it was all so much fun!! The atmosphere was great to be amongst!
Over the week, I was able to see what goes on behind the scenes of a ‘home grown’ fashion brand. An opportunity alike should never be dismissed.
Today I had the sweetest Mother’s Day with the family. So a big shout out to all the mums out there including mine! xxx Thank you.
Recently, I picked up this grunge-d up cami from The Fifth the Label, and I am in love. Paired back with basic denim boyfriend jeans, a textured scarf and perfect black boots (Would highly recommend if you are looking for a really versatile pair of boots). Also, a massive thank to Maisie for these stunning earrings from Minimalist Jewellery. There is nothing like simple statement earrings to complete any outfit.
The progress that I have made over the past months for the World’s Greatest Shave has been incredible. I have gained enormous support, that I am truely grateful for. With a major fundraiser still to come, I am excited to see how much money we can raise for the Leukaemia Foundation. Feel free to make a donation at http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/reneebaylis. Much appreciated.
In regards to the ‘shaving’ of my hair, I was unable to completely shave it, due to some circumstances. However, I am so happy with the results. I was still able to give my hair to a charity, which will then turn it in to a wig for patients suffering from cancer.
Together we can make a large impact on the world cancer.
Please, give generously and don’t forget to treat your mum!
It’s that time of the year again. Over the past two weekends Coachella has been featuring all over my insta feed, and with Groovin the Moo happening this weekend, there is no doubt I have them ‘Festival Feels’.
After a road trip to Adelaide today, my friend, Chloe, and I are ready to adventure to Oakbank tomorrow for Groovin the Moo. With excitement running through us, there is no doubt that the day is going to be filled with fun!!!!!!!!!
With festival style all around, I wondered to the thrift shop to hunt for my own festival get up. Along the way, I picked up a black and pink lace dress, layered with a simple black crop. Paired with a denim jacket, them chilly festival nights will be a breeze. (Get it!! Because a breeze is quite chilly ahahah)..
Outfit two features the perfect flowing skirt, that I can not stop spinning in!! It is perfect for a music festival, and even better with the same over sized denim jacket and accessory overload! I love it!!
If you’re going to Groovin the Moo this weekend make sure to get your groove thang on!!!!! + have fun!
What a wild week it has been. Lounging around, doing not much at all… Just relaxing before the reality of another term sets in. With the month of May around the corner, I thought why not feature an ‘April Picks/ Favourites’ this week on the blog. Here it is! 5 picks from my April favourites!
//1. With winter approaching, I have been on the hunt for the perfect outwear, which is when I stumble crossed Hatrik Vintage. It is where old meets new, and denim meets sequins. I instantly fell in love with these vintage denim jackets, custom made to have your very own design on them. Check out their website for some sweet vintage finds, and even sweeter inspiration!
//2. Continuing on with the theme of outerwear, you would think that I have been taken over by the alien race but I swear I haven’t.. It’s just that I can’t stop dreaming about these incredible faux fur coats. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be rugged up in what could be an unknown species all winter long?
//3. Caps, caps, caps. With a mere 80%-90% of my hair all gone after last weeks chop, there is no doubt that I miss being to ‘chuck my hair up’. As a result I have been loving caps. I can’t seem to get enough of them! (Be sure to let me know if you know where to find the ultimate cap!)
//4. Ingrid Williams. Enough said. Home grown model, Ingrid Williams is killing it locally and internationally with having worked with some great designers, such as Dion Lee and Karen Walker. And… Did I mention her style is impeccable? Go check out her insta for the latest. > @ingridwillo
//5. Peel the avocado, peel the avocadoooooooooo. Since being home I been devouring these babies. Whilst being away from home I have begun to see the beauty in a home cooked meal and a good avo! (Thanks Mum!!!!)
The school holidays are finally here and I am so excited! I get to see my family, my pup and most importantly my long lost wardrobe. Ahahah! No, but seriously. Ahah!! I can not wait to see what the holidays have in store for me, apart from homework!! If you have any ideas of what I should get up to, let me know! I was thinking a picnic, a backyard camp out and a little ‘Groovin the Moo‘ action. What do you think?
Now… On to the post! This is the third and final collaboration with the incredible Maypole Design!! Over the past weeks we have come together to bring to you 3 looks featuring 4 different necklaces from Maypole Designs.
This week we bring to you a classic look, with the most perfectly cut, white pair of trousers, a draped cami and Maypole Designs very own Harlo Three Tassel Necklace and the Sunday Copper Necklace. I love layering with these staple necklaces, knowing that they could go with absolutely anything, including your holiday get up!
Don’t forget to take a break these holidays, and have fun!
