August’s Ten #MakeYouSmileStyle Instagram Favourites

IG-1Hello, friends! What a busy week it has been. I’m deep into the writing of my second book now and it’s so exciting to see it coming together. I’m super excited to be flying to Stockholm today for a photo shoot for the book, but before I head to the airport I wanted to drop in with some of my recent favourites from the #MakeYouSmileStyle feed on Instagram. I share my daily colour inspirations and discoveries via this hashtag on Bright.Bazaar’s Instagram account and I LOVE seeing other ‘grammers sharing their finds and colour stories from all corners of the world on the tag, too! After the jump there’s a round up of ten inspiring favourites. Let me know which ones you are digging, then head over to Insta to share your #MakeYouSmileStyle grams! Photo: @dugfir
