By Emily Beetleshack
The original author of The Beetle Shack, Emily is a chronic over sharer and collector of unnecessary consumer goods. In a past life Emily was a high school Visual Arts teacher. She always enjoyed the ‘naughty’ kids the most; the ones who were resistant to following the rules and questioned the boundaries. They were interesting, challenging and funny. When she was pregnant with her first child she could be heard saying, “I hope I have a cheeky child, one that speaks his mind and is rebellious in nature”. Unsurprisingly, she did. In the archives of the Beetle Shack you'll find her tales of raising her own ‘spirited’ children whilst swanning about the house dressed as a fruit salad.
Animal print is one trend I can't go past. It's just SO easy to wear as hides the stains and truths of daily life at home with kids. It's timeless and can be worn casually or dressed up with the addition of heels and red lippy. When people suggest it's a neutral, they're correct. Team it with white, black, dusty pink, khaki or camel. This is definitely a trend that will be carried through into Autumn/ Winter collections.
