INTERVIEW | FATHER'S DAY WITH THE DADDY FASHION STYLIST

daddy9 What better way to celebrate Father's Day than getting to know more about my favourite insta-daddy @thedaddyfashionstylist.

To say Melbourne based daddy/daughter duo, Pete & Harlow have become insta-famous doesn't do justice to their level of influence. With over 100k people addicted to this mini-fashionista and her doting Dad- their appeal goes far beyond Harlow's coveted wardrobe and amazing hairstyles.  Pete's Instagram feed exudes warmth and love with an unspoken message of tolerance and acceptance. Mix this with some down right hilarious thigh clapping (not from Pete) and donut munching (mainly Pete); is there any wonder that the likes of Kourtney Kardashian follow their daily musings?!

I have had the pleasure of meeting Pete and Harlow in "real life"- and they are exactly as you would expect- sweet, genuine, down to earth doting daddy with his beautiful little girl who just beams happiness. Happy Father's Day Pete and Jason! Harlow is one lucky little lady. xo

Happy Father's Day Pete!  How will you and Jason be spending the day?

ThankYou.  It really is an honour to be celebrating Father's Day.  We'll more than likely spend the morning exchanging lots of cuddles with our favourite girl, followed by lunch with Harlow's grandad and other family members.

What is the best part about what being a daddy?

As any parent will tell you, parenting is a tough job.  You go to bed tired.  You wake up tired.  At the end of the day, I wouldn't have it any other way.  For me, being a daddy truly is one of the best parts of living this life.

Has there been a stand-out "pinch yourself" moment on your @thedaddyfashionstylist journey?

When I started my Instagram journey, it began as a place to document my love for Harlow, as well as my love for fashion.  Everyday is a "'pinch yourself" moment.  I am overwhelmed, and beyond appreciative of those who have been so kind to us.  I've said before, I may not be able to reply to every comment, but I see you, and I thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.

What does Jason think about the rise of @thedaddyfashionstylist?

I have the most incredible partner.  Jason has been very supportive and encouraging the entire way.

What is your favourite movie scene?

My all time favourite movie scene come from 'Pretty Woman,' when a disheveled Julia Roberts walks into a ritzy Beverly Hills boutique, and the women refuse to help her based on her appearance, and is forced to leave. Then, she later returns to the boutique, her hands filled with various designer shopping bags, and she tells the sales woman that she made a big mistake in not helping her.  The message is simple, and is easily applicable to any situation - you get what you give.  It's easy.  Be nice.

Who is your ultimate celeb crush?

Kourtney Kardashian.  Without a doubt.  Not only is she a style icon, but she seems very grounded, and very relatable, and you get the sense the she truly enjoys being a mother.

Who is Jason's?

He would never admit to it, but any of the members of ABBA.

What is your favourite thing to do as a family?

Spending quality time together.  Jason maintains an extremely busy work schedule, any time we get to be together, without the distractions of work, is a luxury.  Family time is the best time.

What advice would you share for up and coming mummy/daddy bloggers?

Be Authenitic.  Be Passionate.  Be You.  With these three simple rules, the sky is the limit xo
