HOT SUMMER BEAUTY | ESSENTIALS MENU

I feel like we all have the best intentions to dress up and do our make up on holiday – it’s a time when we want to feel out best! However, when the time comes around, we realise just how hot and sweaty those summer nights are, and once again crave a minimal routine with products that do more than they say on the tin…

A SICILIAN GETAWAY | A WEEK OF HIGHLIGHTS

I spent all of last week in beautiful Sicily, in the little hilltop town of Taormina to be precise! Positano, Puglia and Lake Garda had all been high on my Italian wish list, but we finally settled on Taormina after a couple of weeks of researching. We left booking a summer getaway until the very last minute, so neither of us knew what to expect. We arrived in the middle of the night, groggy from the flight, and unable to see much of the landscape around us. On the first morning, I woke up around 5am and pushed open our balcony shutters to find a pastel pink sunrise waiting for me. I was instantly filled with excitement, a sudden feeling that this was a place I was going to fall deeply in love with…

MY HOLIDAY WARDROBE | TAORMINA

Holiday dressing is something I look forward to every year – I think it’s because a lot more precise styling is usually involved, which is something I don’t tend to do at home. My day to day life involves chucking on what feels nice (or what’s clean/closest to me), so a luggage limit always leaves me laying out all my outfits the night before. I always try to take a few neutral pieces away with me – items that I can mix and match, and shoes that compliment a few different looks are key! I received so many lovely messages from you guys whilst I was away, so thought I’d give you a proper run down of everything I took with me…

THINK VINTAGE | TREND PIECES

Big puffy sleeves are everywhere at the moment and I’m one hundred percent on board with it – I never thought of myself as someone who liked to attract too much attention with their outfits when walking down the street, but I feel like statement sleeves are fast becoming my happy place. They instantly make any outfit look more stylish, and happen to be a nifty fast fix for dressing up high waist denim…

A REMINDER

If you’ve read my blog for a while then you may have caught a few of my posts discussing anxiety and my experiences with it so far. It’s a part of me that I vowed to be honest and open about on here as someone who has lived with it since their early teens – it’s as much a part of me as the clothes I love and the inspirations I share, and not something that I want to hide or skim over. As someone who presents themselves online, I think it’s important for me to share the times that might not feel as happy or interesting, the parts that make me human…

LA GARCONNE

One of my favourite french brands had an archive sale recently, so I instantly headed over to the website in the hope of picking up something special. Everything on the Sezane website tends to sell out as quickly as it appears online (and rightly so), so there’s always an air of urgency whenever new stock drops. As soon as I spied this T-shirt it was love – simple monochrome design, relaxed fit, the best friend to my oversized blazer, the vital piece to my weekday uniform…

FRAGRANCES I LOVE | TOP FIVE

I’ve always been someone who has only ever had a handful of fragrances at their disposal – not because I don’t love lots of different scents, but because I’m very particular about the ones I choose to wear. I rarely come across a perfume and instantly have that ‘have to have it‘ feeling – this […]

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…

SAME SHIT, DIFFERENT CENTURY | GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS #2

Welcome back to the second instalment of my ‘Girls support girls’ series, it’s been a little longer than anticipated due to a crazy workload, but I’m happy to be finally sat at my laptop writing about one of my favourite topics – inspirational women. I recently received a message from a lady who attended the women’s march back in January, along with millions of other women – all standing together to advocate women’s rights…
