Shaley Ham – Western rooted fashion & lifestyle
Content Creator ✱ Tax Accountant

I love all types of fashion but there is no doubt that western and bohemian styles hold a special place in my heart.  I can easily sit for hours browsing the Instagram accounts of my favourite fashion influencers, so thought I’d put this browsing time to good use and let you in on a few of my favourites. Grab a cuppa and prepare to spend the next few hours glued to your phone browsing these Instagram accounts…
