 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.

Hello Holidays! Our little family of 5 is taking a few days down the coast to rest and recuperate after a wonderfully crazy 2014. It's the first time we've been away for more than a night or two since Zeph was born, so to say the mood is jubilant would be an understatement.

We packed pretty light relying on a few basics that can be layered when necessary. My Off the Shoulder Boho Top is a steady favourite at the moment. I'm wearing it above layered over my Corsair Cami - perfect for lazy holiday days.


Corsair Cami | size M
Off The Shoulder Boho Top | size S
Striped Masquerade Trouser | size 10

You can see the gorgeous Bev from Iris May Style in her Masquerade Trousers here. They're a seriously good buy for $89.00!
