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…

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…

ASOS SUMMER | NEW STRIPES

Summer is well underway which means our Instagram feeds are full of people enjoying festivals, lazing on the beach, and generally parading about in their glorious summer attire. Personally, it’s my favourite time of the year to scroll through Instagram – I find it so inspiring to catch up on where others are travelling to and the outfits they are excited to take with them. If there’s one print in particular that’s been catching my eye more than every lately, it’s stripes! And I’m not just talking the classic Breton top that we all know and love…

LA DOLTE VITA

Yep, a bit of a joke title considering I wore this exact outfit to the post office just last week. That’s the thing about fashion though isn’t it? It has the power to make you feel like you’re strolling through some quaint little Italian village, even when you’re running the most tedious of errands…

THE VINTAGE DRESS | TOP TIPS

I am that annoying person that gets asked where my dress is from by someone with appreciative eyes – only to let them down with the dreaded ‘it’s vintage’. Suddenly you see their heart sink, and you feel the vintage induced guilt all over again. What makes it worse is that being a blogger is now my full time occupation, but yet, I just won’t quit my love for vintage. With this in mind, I thought I’d give you a run down of my ‘vintage dress code’, which is a slightly fancier way of saying I’m gonna let you in on a few top tips when it comes it making the best of that vintage dress you found. The one stuffed at the back of your wardrobe because you ‘just liked the print’, but it didn’t quite fit right…

THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS | FREE PEOPLE

A LBD is essential in every wardrobe, that’s just a given! No matter what shape, size, or age, a little black dress will always be your fail safe. It’s the one item I find myself rummaging for when it comes to a last minute night out or that unexpected dress code. Black gets a bit of a tough rep when it comes to summer dressing – white becomes everyone’s favourite go-to, and the black items in our wardrobes tend to get cast aside for another season…

HUNTER WELLIES | A BRITISH SUMMER LOOKBOOK

I love a good pair of wellies come festival season. I’m a huge fan of how they look with a trusty vintage dress, and nothing could be more British when teamed with a waterproof parka. They have become the backbone of festival style, and luckily they look great with an array of different outfits/basically whatever the hell you feel like wearing whilst you’re having fun in the fields. The right pair means we can stomp through the rain and mud until our hearts content, styling it out the way we do best, with a good sense of humour (and a thick pair of socks)…
