Blogger Inspired | CharliMarieTV + Liner Note Kids 2014

“Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . ."” 

- C.S. Lewis

We have done one 'blogger inspired' post before where Ellen took inspiration from UK blogger Anna from Vivanna Does Makeup. For this post we focus on a blogger a little closer to home. Charli is a blogger/youtuber from New Zealand (but soon to be based in London) who we are lucky enough to be friends with! In her spare time Charli not only runs an amazing blog and youtube channel, but she also has a super cool t-shirt business called Liner Note Kids which is inspired by her love of music. 
Our t-shirts arrived in the post last week so we had a little photoshoot of our outfits from Saturday, and coincidentally Tara had ended up in a particularly Charli inspired outfit! 

Tara wears// 'Soundwaves' t-shirt - Liner Note Kids, skirt - The Warehouse, boots - Andrea Biani, lips - Wet n' Wild in 'cherry bomb'
Ellen wears// 'Hi def hopes and dreams' t-shirt - Liner Note Kids, jeans - esprit, shoes - Windsor Smith, cardigan - thrifted

Charli hand screen prints all the shirts herself and has designed them based on inspiration from her favourite songs and musicians. The 'Soundwaves' t-shirt Tara wears is the actual soundwaves from a song by Fall Out Boy, how cool is that! 
The LNK store has gone on hiatus for the holidays for now but you can follow the twitter account for updates on when it will be back up and running!

"All metallics are neutrals. So it is absolutely fine to mix gold and silver; you just want it to look like it has purpose."
- Stacy London

The Casual Look | The Warehouse Summer '15 Pt III

"I'm pretty casual, but I'm starting to obsess a little bit; like, one of my favorite things to do is to pair really feminine accessories with edgier outfits or vice versa."
-Kara Hayward

When we think of summer we think of sunshine, shorts, and singlets. Though this time of year can be full of events where you might want to dress up (see our party looks here), the casual look is probably what you'll find us wearing most often. These shorts from the Garage range were a standout for us. They are not only an amazing comfy and cool style, but they also come in a great range of prints and colours! We thought the embossed print on the slip on shoes was an awesome detail, and the style of shoe is super comfy.

*Disclaimer: this post was made possible thanks to The Warehouse. For more information about #officialblogger see here

top $12 , shorts $15 , shoes $20 c/o The Warehouse

We hope you've enjoyed our three posts on The Warehouse's summer range, it has been a fun collaboration to put together!
