I’m such a tomboy at heart. Everyone always says that right? Like “Oh when I was young I was such an ugly tomboy”..ok when I say everyone I really just mean super pretty “models” and actresses who yknow, have “grown” out of their ugly phase. Don’t get me wrong, I love me an a-line poofy high-waisted granny style skirt with some serious heels but really, me in some cool camo pants, a tshirt and a sweet jacket and that’ll be my happiest. When I’m getting dressed, I always make sure I balance out the tomboy-ness with a hit of girlyness: loose cuffed trousers with sweet leopard print flats or a long girly maxi skirt with messed up Vans on my feet.

A couple of weeks ago Will from BDGA store in Boston contacted me to do a feature and all my former “sneakerfiend/streetwear” goosebumps we’re back and full of excitement. Immediately I headed for the cool as chips Bodega Varsity Jacket which was perfect cos I’d been wanting a baseball jacket for years now. When I received the jacket, you have no idea how excited I was to find the secret camo lining! I’m pretty sure my love for camo print is quite obvious now and my obsession is probably only going to become even crazier! I styled the jacket with of course my favourite camo pants and to strike the balance between boy and girl, I stomped around in my H&M x Marni platforms and accessorized with a vintage Chanel purse and my new super cool Henry Holland x Le Specs muffin shades.
