:: Let’s go to the seaside. Sand in our toes, salt in our hair, not a care, not a care in the world. Summer ease, summer breeze. Let’s go to the seaside ::
The sun has revealed itself in full light, hinting at another hot summer well on it’s way, and so we gathered a few friends and headed down to one of our favourite local beaches, Wategos, the stunningly fresh cove at Australia’s Most Easterly Point. Our idea for this seasons photoshoot was to capture the simplicity and pure beauty of arriving at the sea, immersing ourselves in the soft sand and cool water, and celebrating the essence of a woman being comfortable in her skin. Keeping it casual, comfortable, and unique to our free-spirited lifestyle with toss-on-and-go tops and basics, to soft and elegant kimonos, the focus is on relaxed and carefree vibes. We’ve crafted new jewellery combining elements of earth and sea as standout pieces that pair beautifully with basic tees and dresses. New kimonos have also arrived, the Jewel of Rishikesh, which features a stunning mandala designed in burnout velvet, a beautifully crafted piece that is hand-dyed with flowers and native plants, holding true to the comfort and style of our seaside home.
Summer Dreams is about bringing all of our favourite essentials together in an easy-going, feminine style with a touch of luxury. Thanks again to our friends for putting together these magical moments:

It’s that time of the year again around Australia, and particularly in Byron Bay, we are drifting and floating into the new season quite beautifully. Spring has arrived as a very welcomed guest, and to no avail showed us her warmer side straight away ~ beach walks, early morning swims, and leaping our clocks ahead an hour gave us just that extra bit of sunset light to cozy up to beach fires with our families and friends.
The images collected evoke some of the soft memories of drifting with the tide and strolling along the shoreline, collecting treasures with our loved ones, light conversations that fade into the sunlight, and shimmer with each breaking wave. Yes, Spring is well and truly here, and we are beginning to see glimpses of a fresh dawn of Summer on the horizon..soon, soon.. Until then, we drift and enjoy…xx
With Love and Light,

Interior Love in Brasil
Brazil is a country with such a rich culture and deep history, particularly in the North, around Bahia where this blog is based. The African influence is at large and when you mix that with the relaxed, beachy style of coastal Brazillians we have an interior visual feast!
These are 3 boutique ‘pousadsas’ or hotels in Trancoso- a beautiful beach town in Bahia. They are: Casa Lola, Casa Tiba and Uxua Casa. The design of each is unique but they all utilise the beauty of raw timbers, bamboo and crisp white walls. We love! Another must see desitnation..Brazil anyone?
Hope you enjoy as much as we did. Viva Brazil! xx
:: Tribal ::
It’s the pulse of the drumbeat, the rhythm of the dance, the connection to tradition, the sounds of ancient cultures, captured and captivating us through their adornments. We are all ways so inspired by the gorgeous goddesses of ancient tribes and their stunning traditional wear of intricate jewellery, that we’ve chosen to pay homage to them with some of our favourite images. Women’s prized decorations from Rajasthan, Africa, India, Asia, Morocco…the inspiring images could go on for eternity. And we can just imagine the beautiful sounds they create with each elegant step, each dance, each movement of the body…celebrating tradition through adornments.
We are very excited to be creating and bringing you some new gorgeous jewellery inspired by these ancient tribes! Gemstones and cowrie shells, crystals and leather all hand made with our signature bohemian luxe. Watch this space for our new designs coming soon… xx

:: Honey Pie Living ::
Springtime moments with the sweet smells of delicate jasmines blossoming, soft dew of rainy mist on the textured aged walls, and the beginnings of warm breezes flowing our way. We are absolutely adoring these beautiful captures of one of our favourite bloggers, Hannah from Honey Pie Living, draped in the soft silk of our Akina Kimono in Smoke Ceremony . The ease and casual luxury of her photography always makes us melt, as there is an air of tranquility and comfort in each photo, something very timeless that we love.
The colours of our hand-dyed silk cape reflect the textured beauty and palette of these gorgeous captured moments (she does them so well!), and since these lovely capes have been a popular item, we now have them back on PRE-ORDER, in serendipitous timing for the season…
May the sweetness of Spring flow to you,
MC girls XOXO
We haven’t blogged in a little while, we have been so busy creating our new shop space at 12 Centennial Circuit, Byron Arts and Industrial Estate…and it’s looking amazing we must say! We will blog some photos of it very soon, but for now, we’re sharing some inspirational photos of one of our longed for travel destinations..Morocco!
Wanderlust is said to be a strong desire for, or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world…
We have been dreaming of Morocco this week, imagining wandering the streets in the warm spice filled air, stumbling through doorways that open up to some of the most amazing tile work. The colours, the patterns, the textures, the culture…Morocco is brimming with inspiration.
We hope you join us on our Moroccan daydream and enjoy your weekend.
Love and wanderlust, the Myee Carlyle team xxx
