Style: #MyLifeMyRules

lazy oaf pink bear coat bear face on back


This summer EMMI CAFFÈ LATTE are encouraging us all to shake things up and live life by our own rules. We are talking water fights in the park after work, weekend roadtrips to the seaside and dancing your docs off at as many festivals as you can! My friends, it’s time to rip up the rule book, grab life by the latte and have a little more fun in the sun! Got it?!

Dress Like Every Day Is Your Birthday

With this in mind, I wanted to share one of my personal ways I like to live life by my own rules… Dressing like every day is my birthday! You know that birthday feeling of getting dressed in your happiest dress, favourite lipstick and a fabulous coat? Well, that’s what I’m talking about! It can be far too easy to wear your shabby old jeans and a plain top, but how can you shake things up when you are wearing boring clothes?! So here’s my challenge for you, tomorrow morning when you are looking at your wardrobe, say to yourself ‘what goes with balloons?!’ and put it on! Forget fashion rules, wear clashing colours and print on print, wear everything you love and wear it altogether just because you can! Don’t save your favourite clothes for special occasions let today be that special occasion, it is summer, after all! Today isn’t my birthday, but I sure feel like it could be! Join the party and share your outfits with #MyLifeMyRules!
