FASHION | piña para la niña

My favorite item of jewelry is this golden pineapple made by Colombian jewelry brand Floramazona. You can follow their Instagram to see all their gorgeous tropical designs. I never take my pineapple off — it has special meaning for me. It's a symbol of hospitality, a symbol of my home Australian state of Queensland (we even have a giant pineapple!), its kitsch and tropical, and also represents the local saying piña para la niña (pineapple for the little girl) embodying my personal philosophy of living with a childlike wonder for the world and everything in it.  

Walking in the sun all day I use these kimono-type capes as a lightweight and colourful way to cover up. I basically cut a pattern from a design I liked and now I love scrounging through fabric stores for pretty prints and patterns to create dozens of different versions. When I'm stateside, I stock up on ready made ones at Urban Outfitters.

Nike Free RN: These are my go to shoes for travel. The all-black means I can wear with opaques for socializing, and they are so comfortable and light for running.
