On Monday I wrote a blog post about the “other side” of social media. But today I want to talk about the colourful, sparkly, lovely side of it all. Do you know Blog Society? It’s a global community and resource for bloggers and creative business owners to connect, collaborate and share. Last week they posted a status on Facebook urging creatives to post about who they’d love to collaborate with in the blog world. Of course I had to say the fabulous Kim-Marie Williams from quirky cute Sydney blog Kimba Likes. If you’re not familiar with her internet space keep reading. Kimba is a lover of all things beauty, colour, retro chic and bringing fun to her wardrobe. If only I had her confidence for a good old print clash. Basically she’s a babe! Any who, I admitted I’d love to collaborate with her and a day later what pops into my inbox? An invite to co-host her well known style party “Style It Project” for November/December! How amazing is the power of social media?
Style It Project is a monthly style project where Kimba (and now me this month and next) will share how we’ve styled affordable, easily accessible pieces. Tapping into Nikki from Styling You’s #everydaystyle Instagram hashtag, it’s a chance for women to share their own styling tips on the chosen items, in their own way! No rules! For more info on the project head over to Kimba’s blog now.
Now what will be the stars of the next two months? The boater hat (this one is from Target, shop it here) and the classic slogan tee (by local label Ruby & Lilli)! You don’t have to buy a new hat (mine is from Big W!) or shirt to play – rock what you’ve got your way! And here is fun thing – Ruby and Lilli have a special discount code for any of you looking for a new tee. Simply use “StyleItProject” at the check out for 10% off! And don’t forget to follow @KimbaLikes and I because we have a great Ruby and Lilli giveaway coming soon!
I thought I’d share a few snaps taken on the weekend in my Ruby & Lilli slogan tee of course! I’ve written about this tee before (here) but this time styled it in a more relaxed boho way for a blogging event this weekend gone. The tee works beautifully with a soft printed pant and to jazz the outfit up a little I added a few stacked bracelets from Lovisa, my favourite Kmart sandals and a swipe of coral lipstick! Comfortable, casual, but still that little bit special! Ruby and Lilli’s tee are a soft luxe feel, come in all styles and colours and range in size from XS to 6XL! Something for everyone! Kimba and I will be sharing more looks via social media and here over the coming weeks! Will you be playing along?
What does you favourite “slogan tee” say?
