Havergal College | Real Girl Things

Social media is filled with photos of the things that supposedly matter most to girls (#GirlThings): nail polish, outfits of the day, and makeup. But if you ask real girls, they'll tell you about their soccer jersey, their sketchbook, their ballet shoes, a photo of their sister, and their makeup, too. To create a completely different kind of flat lay, we asked every Havergal College student from JK-Grade 12 to bring in the item that means the most to them. This was the result.

We made a digital version of the flat lay on Instagram, where people could tap on any item to see the story behind it, as told by the students themselves.
