The Model and Me: iland co. spring-summer 2019

I’ve shared a lot here over the years about Australian label iland co. – and you’ve fallen in love for the brand’s duster jackets that come in three different lengths because, hello, we’re all different heights and need to play with different proportions.

iland co. has now branched out into creating other fashion pieces and in this Model and Me post, I’m including the label’s new boho top style.

I’m a sucker for boho anything but find boho tops in lightweight fabrics (this is a rayon) super versatile all year round. In winter I layer them under a longline cardi. In summer, I wear as is because I love a bit of a sleeve for sun protection.

The print on this top is simply gorgeous. It’s also available in mint, as featured on @irismaystyle. Bev is wearing the M and I think her bust fills the v-neck better than mine does. It’s a low v-neck with two ties that sit below my bra line.

The under-bust waist detailing gives shape, which those with a defined waist will love. I’ve worked the top back with white jeans but this top would work with denim jeans, denim shorts, or chambray shorts.

I’ve finished the look with my fave sparkle flat sandals from FRANKiE4 but I’d also work this outfit back with heels or wedges.

PS. If you head over to my IGTV channel, you can see a video I’ve done which better shows some of the details.
