THE SUMMER TRENCH

I’d been searching for the perfect lightweight summer trench coat for sometime – something that wasn’t too thick and didn’t completely drown my outfit underneath. Something that I could throw on in a hurry without much thought, and would carry me through to the cooler months with a high neck jumper and jeans. I’d looked everywhere recently and a lot of them seemed to have quite trend lead features – ruffles, bows, and buttons galore, nothing seemed to be fitting the criteria in my head. I wanted that slouchy Birkin style fit that I’m endlessly chasing…

A UNIFORM OF SORTS

When I’m feeling uninspired by my wardrobe, or having one of those off days where everything I try on makes me feel like some sort of potato – there’s one combination in particular that I know I can always rely on. High waist denim, a simple blouse or T-shirt, and a fail-safe oversized blazer thrown in for good measure! It has become a uniform of sorts, something I return to time and time again, and that naturally seems to update itself from season to season…

STAPLE SUMMER BLOUSE | ROUJE

I’m very much a person that loves creating endless wish lists. I find it really rewarding to have goals to work towards – whether it’s places I want to visit, beauty items I want to try out, or new clothing brands that I’ve been lusting after. Rouje had been at the top of my list for a long while – a brand founded by Parisian dream girl, Jeanne Damas, and heavily influenced by the women around her. It was a brand that sparked my intrigue long before I’d even laid eyes on the collection itself…

PINK HUES

I’m a little bit obsessed with all things pink/nude at the moment – whether it’s teaming a pair of pastel pink mules with my outfit, or picking up a new art print for our flat, I definitely have pink on the mind. It seems to have had a bit of a comeback as of late, it’s no longer the typically ‘girly’ shade it once was, and has been taking the form of more masculine pieces that have been catching my eye. Pink was never on the agenda for me up until this year, and I must say, It’s finally starting to feel at home in my wardrobe…

POLKA DOTS | A LOVE AFFAIR

I’m drawn to polka dots in all shapes and sizes – fellow polka dot addicts will agree there’s just something effortlessly chic about them that instantly tranforms you into a vintage inspired dream. Vintage polka dots in particular are a weakness of mine, I’m forever on the hunt for the perfect blouse sporting a winning combination of polka dots. Similar to stripes, they seem to have a had a bit of a refresh lately, and show no sign of disappearing over summer…

ASOS SUMMER | NEW STRIPES

Summer is well underway which means our Instagram feeds are full of people enjoying festivals, lazing on the beach, and generally parading about in their glorious summer attire. Personally, it’s my favourite time of the year to scroll through Instagram – I find it so inspiring to catch up on where others are travelling to and the outfits they are excited to take with them. If there’s one print in particular that’s been catching my eye more than every lately, it’s stripes! And I’m not just talking the classic Breton top that we all know and love…

LA DOLTE VITA

Yep, a bit of a joke title considering I wore this exact outfit to the post office just last week. That’s the thing about fashion though isn’t it? It has the power to make you feel like you’re strolling through some quaint little Italian village, even when you’re running the most tedious of errands…

SKINCARE | NEW DISCOVERIES

It probably doesn’t come across as much on here as other things, but I bloody love skincare. I love everything about it, the ritual of a routine, discovering new brands, and finding products that really really work. Products that I can recommend to friends and family, to you guys, to basically anyone who will listen…

THE EXPIRY DATE | SK-II CAMPAIGN

Recently I had the opportunity to watch the new campaign video by skincare brand SK-II, a brand that I had heard lots about but didn’t have much first hand experience with. As an avid skincare lover, I was immediately intrigued by the video and opened it up straight away to see what it was all about. In just a few short minutes, the film manages to capture a feeling that so many women will be familiar with – this idea that as women, we are born with an expiry date. Or in short, societal expectations which we seem to constantly have to battle in order to be happy and content…
