SPRING PLAYLIST

I got to thinking recently that I haven’t shared much of my musical tastes on here – something which is a big part of my life, and has also inspired my outfit choices over the years (good,, bad and the ugly). The warmer weather always has an affect on the music I like to listen to, so I thought it might be nice to share a little Spring playlist with you guys. A word of warning, I’m pretty stuck in my ways when it comes to music, pretty much like my personal style, I tend to look back over the years rather than forward (there’s a few newish). Most of these are songs that are special to me in some way, and that I listen to over and over again at this time of year…

MAKING IT WORK | BLOGGING 101

I often get messages asking for advice on everything from how I started up my blog, to editing my Instagram feed, and everything in between that brings my little corner of the internet to life. I thought it might be interesting, or perhaps just useful for you guys if I curated all this information and stuck it in one place. So here goes, everything you need to know about how I edit my pictures, stay inspired, and come up with fresh content ideas whilst juggling life at the same time…

VINTAGE SHOPPING | A MINI GUIDE

I’ve mentioned my love for vintage clothing quite a lot on this blog, I know some people can’t stand the smell of a vintage shop and would just rather buy something new (which is fine), but for me, there’s just something magical about finding a piece that has a bit of history behind it. Personally, I love it when a jacket looks a little bit rough around the edges, or I find an amazing blouse and it just has the top button missing. It all adds to the charm, and I think it’s fun to be resourceful and inventive with clothing – I’m constantly cutting up my jeans or turning silk scarfs into neck ties. Admittedly, I’m pretty amateur at this, and it doesn’t always go to plan, but it does add that personal touch to my wardrobe…

THE ART OF BEING ALONE

There seems to be a certain stigma attached to doing things alone – why is it that we are sometimes made to feel ashamed for just being independent and, in simple terms, enjoying our own damn company? Especially so during my teenage years, I found that it was widely considered ‘uncool’ to sit at home with a book on a Friday night, or buy a cinema ticket for one because you actually don’t mind just being at one with the popcorn and a great film. At the ripe old age of 24, I take pride in the fact that I enjoy doing certain things by myself  – I’m surrounded by amazing people but that doesn’t mean that I have to feel strange about enjoying things on my own. I’ve learnt that there is a huge difference between being lonely and being alone…

THINGS JANE BIRKIN TAUGHT ME

I have invested a lot of time in Jane Birkin over the years – I have numerous framed images of her around my flat and countless outfit ideas banked away in my head as a result of constantly googling her/watching her films. If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll probably have figured out that she’s one of my most treasured sources of inspiration. I admire that her style is truly her own, and she nails the perfect contrast between masculine and feminine so well. Again, a strong aspect of my personal style relays this ethos and it’s a theme I constantly gravitate towards when outfit building. I recently visited the Serge Maison whilst in Paris, and it was hard not to imagine their life together, their matching outfits, and all the wonderful adventures they shared. She’s a woman after my own heart, and I thought it only right to dedicate a whole post to her magical essence – I figured it would be fun to put together a light hearted post of all the things Jane has taught me…

BIG SLEEVES | BIG DREAMS

I think that growing up in a small village often made me feel like I had to be less inventive with my fashion choices. Certain items of clothing were considered pretty ‘out there’ and I feel like you don’t get quite the same feeling strolling down a small quiet country lane as you would do parading through a city centre. Whether it’s big sleeves or big dreams – anything tends to be more acceptable with the city as your backdrop…

A GIRL IS A GUN

Hello you wonderful lot and happy International Women’s Day! In the spirit of the occasion, I thought I’d put together a little post in dedication to some female icons that I admire, and do something a little different. I thought it might be cool to share some of my favourite ladies with you, along with some quotes that have always stuck with me. Each of the women below are dear to me in one way or another, either because of their personal style, strong voice, or beautiful words that they left behind…

THE MINI POPPY BAG

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been one of those people that finds the need to fill whichever bag I’m carrying around with me. Whether it’s camera equipment, beauty products, (or most likely snacks), I’ll always find myself accumulating more clutter than I actually need…

SPRING IN MY STEP

In case you hadn’t guessed already, I LOVE Spring. Everything about Spring – chicks, lambs (baby animals of all kind really), blossom, Easter eggs, the excuse to start wearing pretty blouses, shoes without socks, a great outfit without the need (hopefully) of a great big coat…. I think that pretty much covers all the main bases right? In short, I start to get a bit of ‘Spring fever’ around this time of year – this usually inspires me to conduct a much needed wardrobe clear out in the attempt to refresh my outfits and lighten up my go-to Winter colour palette. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might have gathered I’m not the most colourful person in general, but I do love playing around with patterns. I also really love pastel colours – I own an array of pastel coloured nail varnishes, but always shy away from transferring that admiration to my outfits…
