THE PYJAMA BLOUSE THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

I recently stuffed all my summer clothing away until next year, which meant saying goodbye to some of my most loved (and most worn) blouses of the last few months. Needless to say, my wardrobe was looking pretty empty by the end of my efforts – I hadn’t realised just quite how many overtly summer pieces I had picked up, and just how many of them wouldn’t work for the much cooler ahead. However, there were a few pieces that saved the day – the trusty pyjama style blouse is, in my opinion, the ultimate transitional blouse…

24 HOURS IN PARIS | HERMESMATIC

Last week I was lucky enough to head back to one of my favourite places for a brand experience that I could only ever have dreamed of before now. I got the chance to fly to Paris for the night with Hermes, to discover more about their Hermesmatic pop up event and what truly inspires their timeless silk scarf designs…

DRESSING UP | A GUIDE FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T

Getting invited to places is hard if you’re someone who lives their life in high waist denim. Ahh the dreaded no dress code invite that pops up unexpectedly every now and then – how I dread you. It always reminds me how much my style relies on the same simple combinations, and makes me wish I owned an array of way fancier shoes. Truth is, most of my shoes are black, and most of the clothing I own flips between super laid back or city inspired. Recently I had a huge wardrobe clear out so that I could make room for some new season pieces. I quickly realised that if I got invited to a wedding or any kind of fancy occasion, I would running around town like a headless chicken trying to find something last minute. In other words, my wardrobe was practically advertising a vacancy for something a little…

TRY ON HAUL | NEW AUTUMN CLOTHING

I have a brand new video up over on my YouTube channel – a chatty/try on style haul that I filmed this week at home in rainy Manchester. Hopefully the sound is a little better than the last one! Let me know what you think and what you’d like to see next…

ACNE JUMPER

August and September are usually a time of year that leave me feeling in a bit of a style rut, and generally prompt a bit of a shopping spree for some new season pieces. I generally start by picking up a few pieces of knitwear, and start making a mental wish list of the items my wardrobe is lacking. I’m sure I’m not alone in getting the ‘new winter coat’ excitement either – it’s a ritual that many of us have experienced since we were little, and finding the right one can take some serious shopping around…

TRANSITIONAL BASICS

It’s getting towards the end of summer already – not that we ever seem to get much of one here in Manchester! But seriously, how is summer almost over?! I’m making sure to wear all the summery pieces that I’ve worn and loved over the last few months, before they are stored away again until next year. Although I’m always sad to part with the warmer weather, I’m always just as excited for a new season of fashion and new outfit possibilities just around the corner…

CURRENT FAVOURITES | EVERYTHING I LOVED IN AUGUST

Hope you’re all having a lazy Sunday – my second YouTube video is now up! All my favourites from the month of August, including some homeware and beauty bits too. Apologies in advance for the dodgy lighting and sound – still very much trial and error, but will be investing in a mic very soon! Hope it’s not too distracting and let me know your thoughts…

A TIMELESS BAG | BEARA BEARA

For me, a bag is always as much a part of my outfit as the shoes I’m wearing or the blouse I have on. Granted, it’s the last thing I might pick up, but it’s definitely never the last to be considered. I’ve always had a love for interesting, vintage inspired bags, whether that’s a slightly impractical basket bag, or something sturdy and timeless…

THE STATEMENT BLAZER | REASONS TO INVEST

I’ve had a blazer in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember – as my style has grown and evolved, a blazer seems to be one piece that’s always stuck around. It’s a classic piece that for me, helps to blur the line between strictly masculine or feminine dressing. It suits everyone, it looks good on everyone, it comes in an array of different styles and designs, and it’s definitely not just suitable for that job interview you’ve been dreading. Without further adieu, I’ve put together a fun little list of reasons of why a blazer will always be a piece worth investing in…
