THE VINTAGE JUMPER

My love affair with vintage only seems to get stronger as the years go by – I have quite the collection of vintage pieces, everything from bags to battered Levi jeans that I can’t seem to part with. There’s something different about an entirely vintage outfit, the way it makes you feel as though there’s a story behind it, a little bit of history that gives it that added charm…

BEST OF BASICS | THE WINTER EDIT

The basics we own really become the backbone of our personal style, and are often the pieces we turn to in times of need. They are the essential key pieces, the time savers, and the comfort blankets ready and waiting in our wardrobes. Of course, these basic items will differ from person to person, but I thought I’d give you a rundown of my absolute must haves, and how to make the best out of them…

FEEL GOOD STYLING | TOP TIPS

I think it’s safe to say that sometimes we tend to find ourselves feeling negative about the way we look, the clothes we own, and the way they can sometimes make us feel. We often aren’t mindful of the impulse purchases we make and this can leave us feeling ‘stuck in a rut’. I thought it might be fun to talk you through some of my top tips for feeling good about my body image – everything from educating myself to increase a positive mind set, to buying fancy underwear, well, just because…

FASHION IN FILM

I have been toying around with the idea of this blog post for quite a while now – if you follow me over on Instagram, then you may have picked up that I have a huge admiration for cinema, and the outfits that have now become iconic in their own right. I thought I’d do a little round up of some of my absolute favourite ‘fashion in film’ moments, and how they have inspired everything from the way I cut my hair, to the everyday essentials hanging in my wardrobe…

SET BACKS & STAYING TRUE

Hello you wonderful lot – last week was a strange old week for me, one of those that starts off in a very optimistic fashion, and then everything that possibly could go wrong, goes wrong. This happens to all of us and it’s true that bad things usually present themselves in groups of three. It’s sometimes easy to get caught up in negativity instead of focusing on the positive things that surround us too…

JANUARY BLUES

Christmas has officially been and gone, the New Year’s hangovers have well and truly eased, and the realisation that it’s 2017 is finally starting to sink in. Although, as always, my brain is still incapable of writing the correct date down until at least six months into the year. Not long ago, I wrote a little post on how the new year can often bring a positive sense of change, so I thought it was only right to be realistic and talk about the negative feelings that the new year can often magnify, and the different ways in which I try to overcome these. Oh, and I wore a blue dress for the occasion…

THE TEDDY COAT

The teddy coat has been around for a while now but seems to have had a major comeback this season – there’s been lots of different variations available on the high street, and most of them have sold out within a few weeks! I can definitely see why – it’s the perfect cosy cover up that makes you feel as though you haven’t parted with your duvet, but adds that cool edge to any outfit…

NEW YEAR | NEW RED PATENT SHOES

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a well deserved rest over the festive period! As soon as the 1st of January comes around, I’m automatically ready to start stuffing all sparkly attire to the back of the wardrobe, and find myself wanting to plan my goals for the year ahead. It’s an age old cliche, but we all tend to fall for the whole ‘new year, new me’ and all that jazz – but the new year does tend to bring some sort of new hope with it. A clean slate if you will, and a chance to do things a little differently…
