ROMANTIC WHITE BLOUSE

The white blouse is a piece that many of us own in some shape or form – whether it’s a simple work style blouse, or a more statement ruffle design, we are pretty much all familiar with it’s existence. It’s considered to be one of the basics – it’s perfect for layering, tucking in, and even for sleeping in when we are lacking in clean pyjamas. I have many white blouses in my collection, and they are pieces I reach for all year round…

SUMMER DRESS FOR WINTER

If there’s one aspect of winter that I welcome with open arms, it’s the chance to play around with layers and be more experimental with my outfits. I love nothing more than creating the perfect look to sit underneath a longline coat, then piling up the accessories until my hearts content. I could spend hours coordinating bags, shoes, and autumnal tones to create something I’ll wear over and over again. This year all I want to wear are long layers teamed with masculine ankle boots and cross body bags – this is where I’ve decided that some of my key summer pieces can come into play…

GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS #5 | AN IMPORTANT CONVERSATION

Welcome back to another instalment of Girls Support Girls – sorry it’s been a while! In all honesty, the last few weeks have been pretty hectic, and I never want this series to be something rushed or poorly thought out. I guess I was waiting to be inspired by a new topic or train of thought, and it finally feels like the right time to just sit down and type. I’m sure that anyone who keeps up with the news or online affairs will be well aware of the media coverage surrounding sexual assault in Hollywood and beyond. Suddenly one horrific high profile string of cases has opened the gates to many more women and men speaking out against acts of inexcusable behaviour…

FASHION IS FUN & CARING LESS

I feel like the older I get, the more confident I’m becoming in my choices – whether it’s listening to my intuition when it comes to my work, or picking out my outfits each week. I have always had quite a strong sense of what my likes and dislikes are – I’ve never really been someone who has found themselves being particularly indecisive. Unless it’s a huge life-altering decision that I have to make – I generally try to trust that I’ll lead myself in the right direction. That doesn’t mean that reaching this point has happened overnight, and I definitely still have days when I ponder over my future and get lost in my own cloud of thoughts – it’s more to do with a new found confidence in the notion that I’ll always find a way to be okay, no matter what that might be…

TWO STRIPES ARE BETTER THAN ONE

As I’ve gotten older, I have come to appreciate the advice of others and how lucky I am to have such consistent and grounded people around me. I have always been someone that’s great at dishing out pearls of wisdom to others – but terrible at absorbing any of it myself. Particularly when I was younger, I would often make impulsive decisions and worry about the consequences later – not always the most advisable way to get through your teenage years, but a vital learning curve that many of us experience…

MOON RIVER JUMPER

It’s safe to say that wherever there’s a chunky/cable knit jumper – you’re likely to find me either pining for it, or frantically adding it to my shopping basket. As I’ve gotten older, I find myself considering my purchases a lot more, and I often wait a few weeks before investing a new item. I like to investigate what it will match with in my wardrobe rather than impulse buying pieces that I probably already own five variations of. I guess you could say I’m trying to be a little more mindful of how I’m spending my money on the whole – but there are some exceptions to my new found self control. When it comes to knitwear, none of the afore mentioned things seem to come into consideration – I am a crazy knitwear fanatic and will probably end up in a house padded to the brim with fisherman knits and turtlenecks…

NOTES TO MY YOUNGER SELF

I’ve witnessed this style of post flying around a lot this year – ever since reading the heartfelt letter that Victoria Beckham penned to her younger self, it’s something that I have wanted to explore for myself. Instead of writing a whole letter, I thought it might be nice to pick out a few keys things that I’ve learnt thanks to the power of retrospect. A few field notes that I’d offer my younger self if time travelling was a real thing…

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?

How would you describe your personal style? A question I find myself greeted with more frequently than ever before. I often reply with the usual things that might spring to mind – Parisian inspired and vintage influenced often crop up, but the truth is my style is always changing. Trying to assign a label is difficult even for me – I am the owner of my wardrobe, I walk around in my clothes each day, you’d have thought I’d have it all figured out by now. In reality – trying to express what years of personal style evolution have left you with at this exact moment is very tricky indeed…

THE PERFECT TROUSERS FOR RIGHT NOW

Finding the perfect trousers can be difficult, especially when they all seem to fit in the wrong places and look nothing like you imagined online. I mean, don’t even get me started on the tortures of jean shopping. I have come to realise that if it’s fitted at the waist and loose on the legs then I’ll take five. If not just for the sheer ease of avoiding the changing room induced frustration for another season. It’s safe to say that I have a wardrobe full of tops and blouses, but I lack when it comes to bottoms – unless it’s denim, it’s the category I tend to avoid until I absolutely have to face it head on…
