The Icon Series - Abbey Kelly

Hey Abbey,
Thanks for joining us today.
You’re kicking off our ICONS series, lucky us!

Tell us a bit about yourself Abbey
I’m a 24 year old sun-loving beach enthusiast! A little bit of sun and sea water is just bound to put me in a good mood. In my free time you will usually find me outdoors, bike riding, running or at the gym. Running is my sanity. I feel like a brand new person after a good run. After ticking off a half marathon last month, I’m now prepping to run a full marathon (hopefully next year!). As much as I love to be outdoors and keeping active, nothing beats cuddling up to my sister's Golden Retriever ‘Blue.’ He has a very special place in my heart!
How did you get into modelling?
I first got into modelling as a baby, although I only modelled then for a few years. I got back into the industry when I was 22. I worked on a few photo shoots for fun and I instantly fell in love with modelling and the creative aspect of it. One year later I met with my first big agency and signed with them! I’ve been ever so lucky to work with such incredible talented people & brands just like Therapy Shoes. What an awesome team!   

You have a pretty amazing style, who is your fashion icon?
Blake Lively, I mean no matter what she does, she does it right!  

We totally agree! Blake Lively is always on our mood board. 
Are you gonna tell us about your b
iggest fashion mistake?
Oh boy, there’s been a few fashion mistakes over the years. I vividly remember when I was growing up, denim shorts over leggings paired with a massive chunky belt around the waist was a huge trend. I think this was a pretty big fail but hey, we rocked it. 
Tell us your top 5 wardrobe staples?

*A staple pair of good black pants. Pair with heels and you’ve got a glam look or throw on some sneakers and you’ve got casual chic. 

   * Carmella Nude Heels (RRP $69.95) by Therapy Shoes! The heel height is perfect for day or night plus the colour is perfect. They are so easy to rock with a mini skirt or pants. 

   * A statement bag. If ever your outfit feels too ‘simple,’ a unique bag always brings it to life. 

 * Sunglasses! A bit of an odd staple, but if you’re anything like me and a little lazy in the hair and makeup department, then a pair of sunglasses will be your best friend (especially when your running late to day drinks with the girls). 

  * LBD- Little Black Dress. It just never fails! Those last minute events that have you freaking out, this gem always has you covered.  

 Do you have a life motto you live by?
‘It is what it is’ & ‘What will be will be’
These two mottos are something I tell myself almost everyday. It allows a level of acceptance I find calming on the mind when I begin to stress or overthink certain situations!
