Hey Jow Style Stories x Cat JL

Hey Jow is a local accessories brand owned by mermaid Joana Balasteros-Gube. Joana has a talent for putting together layered necklaces and bracelets that are the perfect statement pieces to your wardrobe staples. I have LOVED collaborating with Joana many times in the past, so I was honoured when she invited me to be her September Muse for her Style Stories section in her blog.

Here are some of my favorite images from this collaboration:
