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…

BEST OF BEAUTY | 2016

When I started this blog, I vowed to throw in a few beauty related posts here and there to keep you updated on my routine, what works for me, and those little ‘miracle’ products that make getting ready in the morning that little bit more enjoyable. I’m a big fan of beauty and skin care products and I’m forever recommending things to my friends/family, so it only feels natural to share with you guys too. Admittedly, a little less exciting to write about, but I always find these kind of posts really informative when trying to decide on a new skincare item…

STYLING THE MASCULINE COAT

It’s only a week now until Christmas (not that any of us need a reminder), and it’s safe to say I’ve been living in over-sized coats, jeans, and a simple high neck jumper. It’s that time of year when everything tends to get a bit hectic, and I’m forever thankful for those fail-safe ensembles that don’t require too much mirror time…

LOOKBOOK | THE FESTIVE EDIT

It’s not long now until Christmas – festivities are well underway, and it’s now socially acceptable to wear sequins during the day. Elf costumes too apparently – my eyes have been treated to some delightful sights over the last couple of weeks and long may it continue. I thought I’d well and truly get myself into the festive spirit and start curating some outfit inspiration for the busy few weeks ahead! Think everything from the works Christmas party, the big day itself, or simply a leisurely trip to the markets for some mulled wine. These are some of the pieces I’ll be turning to for all the previously mentioned antics, and possibly even New Year’s Eve…

LITTLE FRENCH SKIRT

If you’ve been following my Instagram/blog for a while then you may have noticed that I’m obsessed with all things French. For me, Parisian girls possess some of the best style around – Jane Birkin and Francoise Hardy are two fine examples of this. Although Jane is actually English, both ladies channel that effortless french vibe that I endlessly chase, and are forever in my thoughts when struggling for inspiration…

WINTER STAPLES

I have always thought of staple pieces as those slightly more special basic items that tie your wardrobe together. The backbone of personal style so to speak, and those much loved essentials that make an appearance year after year…

DECEMBER STRIPES

Fellow stripe addicts will understand the feeling that strikes when you lock eyes with the perfect pattern. Just the right width, proportion of colours, and fit on the body. I don’t even feel guilty for continuing to add to my stripes collection – they are so classic that you can never have enough in my opinion. Stripes are definitely the basis of my wardrobe, and most of the stripes I own will still suit me when I’m old and grey…

THE PERFECT KNIT

Hey all, hope you’ve been having a wonderful November! I for one have managed to do zero Christmas shopping so far in classic Alice style. I have, however, managed to get my hands on the perfect seasonal knit. It’s definitely up there with my favourites this month, and well overdue an appearance on the blog…
