I love the phrase “Smile and the world smiles with you” as having a positive attitude, being kind to others and enjoying living your life to the full is certainly an ethos that I feel passionate about. It is simply impossible to see the bright yellow face of Smiley and not immediately want to grin from ear to ear. Bold, bright colours and statement pieces are a huge trend this summer and Smiley captures this perfectly by teaming three of my favourite things, smiles, leopard print and the colour blue.
I am wearing my UK8 100% organic cotton Smiley vest with a pair of bright yellow sports shorts for a burst of summer love and a nod to sports luxe. This is a beautiful statement piece that can be worn in so many ways. Here I have freshly washed hair, natural makeup, flip flops and shorts for a casual daywear look, which you could easily dress up with a pair of black leggings, killer heels, leather bracelets and oversized sunglasses for a laid back rock-chic vibe.
In 1972 the Smiley face was born as a symbol to embody the spirit of positivity; it went on to be immortalised as the iconic image for house music, fashion and street culture, replacing words with emoticons as a universal language and celebrity craze. The designs can now be found not only on every social media page and text message across the world, but on homewares, stationary, books, clothing and sporting goods alike. This gorgeous leopard print vest is just £20.00 and has filled my summer wardrobe with never ending sunshine and smiles.
