WEARING | SUMMER STAPLES IN COTTON AND LINEN

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.



We're right in the middle of Summer- the days are hot, long and lets be honest sweaty. When I can't really be bothered to dress myself, I opt for natural fibres in swingy oversized cuts. Above is some of my favourite Summer staples, minus the heels, obviously (okay okay, and the make up too). The Dusty Linen Dress is pink is my all time fave and easily the piece I've worn most over the past few months.
