THINK VINTAGE | TREND PIECES

Big puffy sleeves are everywhere at the moment and I’m one hundred percent on board with it – I never thought of myself as someone who liked to attract too much attention with their outfits when walking down the street, but I feel like statement sleeves are fast becoming my happy place. They instantly make any outfit look more stylish, and happen to be a nifty fast fix for dressing up high waist denim…

A REMINDER

If you’ve read my blog for a while then you may have caught a few of my posts discussing anxiety and my experiences with it so far. It’s a part of me that I vowed to be honest and open about on here as someone who has lived with it since their early teens – it’s as much a part of me as the clothes I love and the inspirations I share, and not something that I want to hide or skim over. As someone who presents themselves online, I think it’s important for me to share the times that might not feel as happy or interesting, the parts that make me human…

LA GARCONNE

One of my favourite french brands had an archive sale recently, so I instantly headed over to the website in the hope of picking up something special. Everything on the Sezane website tends to sell out as quickly as it appears online (and rightly so), so there’s always an air of urgency whenever new stock drops. As soon as I spied this T-shirt it was love – simple monochrome design, relaxed fit, the best friend to my oversized blazer, the vital piece to my weekday uniform…

FRAGRANCES I LOVE | TOP FIVE

I’ve always been someone who has only ever had a handful of fragrances at their disposal – not because I don’t love lots of different scents, but because I’m very particular about the ones I choose to wear. I rarely come across a perfume and instantly have that ‘have to have it‘ feeling – this […]

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…

SAME SHIT, DIFFERENT CENTURY | GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS #2

Welcome back to the second instalment of my ‘Girls support girls’ series, it’s been a little longer than anticipated due to a crazy workload, but I’m happy to be finally sat at my laptop writing about one of my favourite topics – inspirational women. I recently received a message from a lady who attended the women’s march back in January, along with millions of other women – all standing together to advocate women’s rights…

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…
