WINTER PLAYLIST

There’s no Christmas playlist this year as I honestly think my Christmas playlist skills well and truly peaked last year, so you’re very welcome to go and check that one out if you so please. What I do have is a winter playlist for you to feast your ears on. Sounds fancy, but in reality I just couldn’t think of a better title, and it’s just a curation of songs that have been keeping me content over the last few weeks…

HONOURING OLD FAVOURITES

Two staples in my winter wardrobe have to be a good pair of checked trousers and a cable knit jumper that makes me feel like I’ve wandered off the set of Twin Peaks. What’s funny about both of these items is that they are endlessly evolving – just when you think you’ve found the perfect pieces that you’ll return to forever, you stumble across a new take on the humble cable knit jumper that stops you in your tracks and makes you question your old moth eaten vintage gem…

THE WORDS WE USE

I shot these images a couple of weeks back for a collaboration with the Ralph Lauren Manchester store – they have been sitting on my desktop without any words to accompany them, so I thought I’d put them to good use. Winter can be pretty miserable when it comes to shooting for the blog – you have to be prepared for all the elements to hit you throughout the duration of the shoot, and sometimes the whole thing ends up being a wasted effort. You find yourself flicking through eighty photos of yourself battling high winds and wondering where it all went horribly wrong…

ADDING SPARKLE THIS SEASON

The festive season is well and truly upon us, and the pressure to have a different outfit for every event can be well and truly exhausting. Over the years, I’ve found that even the most simple of outfits can be made holiday appropriate with the right balance of accessories on your side. Whether it’s a interesting hair clip, a statement bag, or your favourite layered jewellery – for me, the personality of an outfit always lies within the details! With this in mind, I thought I’d talk you through some of my favourite ways to add a little something extra to my festive attire of choice…

UNDERSTATED FESTIVE LOOKS | KEY PIECES

I recently went to shoot in the Altrincham Everyman Cinema after seeing how beautiful their screening rooms were online. Most of the content I shoot for my blog throughout the year is street style based, so it’s really nice to have a bit more fun with the locations at this time of year. Plus, I’m in favour of a comfortable velvet armchair in exchange of a freezing bench in central Manchester any day of the week…

FESTIVE DRINKS

I thought I’d kick of the first of the festive looks with some recent work I did for Zalando – this blog post isn’t sponsored by the way, but I loved the images we shot for Instagram, and wanted to share them over on here too. The outfit features two of my favourite brands this year, so I thought it was fitting to go into a little more detail about them, whilst hopefully inspiring some festivity at the same time…

WORKING FROM HOME

I thought I’d share something I wrote about working from home. I definitely want to start sharing a different side to my writing on here – shorter posts that I write and never really do anything with. Posts that capture a feeling rather than share an outfit or an idea…
