THE GIRLS CLUB | GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS #4

I was always obsessed with Rookie growing up – Tavi Gevinson in particular was someone who stuck out to me as paving her way a little differently through the fashion and blogging world. Rookie Mag offered (and still does) an online world for young writers, creators, and photographers to have their work displayed and to feel part of something. It always struck me as a place where multiple stories were told and all representations and backgrounds were welcome. In this sense, they were constructing the message that fashion and creativity doesn’t have to exclude anyone – that it’s actually cool to be embarrassing and awkward and enthusiastic about the things that bring you joy. In recent years, websites like the Lenny Letter have inspired me in similar ways – Lena Dunham in general doesn’t shy away from difficult topics, and always writes about fashion from a more relatable stand point. I know not everyone is a fan of this, but I personally love reading about the psychology behind how we like to dress, basically anything that delves a little deeper and connects people of all kinds…

LIFE UPDATES

I wanted to do a bit of a chatty informal post with not much of a structure in mind – mainly just to update you guys on where I’m at and have a good old fashioned natter. I feel as though I’m almost at a stage now where I’m content with my routine, and happy at the rate in which my life and content are growing. I’ve been working harder than ever before, but also learning to be less hard on myself and take breaks when it all gets a bit much…

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…

MOON RIVER | AN INTRODUCTION

I’ve been widening my brand horizon a lot more recently – partly due to being a bit uninspired by what the high street has to offer, but mostly due to wanting to try out new designs and be a little more experimental in my outfit choices. I’ll forever be a jeans and blouse girl (it’s just my happy place), but there are times when I fancy something different, or I want to welcome pieces into my wardrobe that make me feel a certain way…
