Young hearts, run free

L’America is all about embracing precious youth by embodying the free spirit within. For their latest offering for Spring, the label has created the most beautiful and eclectic line of chic streetwear. Luxe metallic jacquard and pink lace balance out the raw double denim and the label’s now infamous jersey dress (now available in a black colourway – love!). The campaign was lensed by the label’s creative director, none other than Miss Kym Ellery, and features stunning new face Ella Verberne. The shots have me yearning for warmer weather… Viva L’America!

What are your must-haves for spring?

Our essential spring must-haves would be a sweet floral scent for the home (Citizens of the World Native Gardenia), Kiehl’s lip balm #1, Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub & Balm, a hydrating drink (C Coconut Water is a favourite), comfortable jeans (Rolla’s denim is so soft yet robust!) and a great leather jacket (Brooke can’t put away her Acne Mine Black Noir fitted jacket).

We try to keep our style very trans seasonal, so we stick to thing that are essential to us… you may see this reflection through our store.

Who are your style icons?

We would have to say the simplicity and beauty of Freja Beha Erichsen, the wild sexiness of Bianca Jagger in the late 70's and modern classic Alexa Chung.

Favourite things about spring?

Spring is definitely our favourite season! Not only is it the warm up to summer, but it’s the season of our birthdays which is only a day apart, so we love to share the celebration together. We also love the blossom of flowers in spring, Saturday mornings at an organic food market, sundown Grapefruit Margaritas, local festivals and music sideshows.

Head on over to BRIELEON.COM to shop some beautiful new season pieces!

There's been this one boy who I haven't stopped thinking about for far too long now... I'm looking at you. You had me at Chanello. I've never been a handbag girl but you've made me a changed woman. After seeing you in real life on a passerby, I crave you. And then you keep popping up on my Instagram feed. If you're trying to make me jealous, it sure is working. I know you want me, you know I want you - so what's stopping us from being together? Just a couple o' grand? I know I'm meant to be saving for an upcoming overseas trip (and probably cost more than my flights, accommodation and spending money for that trip combined), but I want you. I need you. Oh baby, oh baby. You truly are the boy of my dreams. Please be mine.

All my love,

Emily xx
