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…

THE CLASSIC COAT

There’s something about this time of year that makes me feel particularly nostalgic – digging out last season’s knitwear, boots, and coats in an attempt to rediscover much loved combinations. The very notion of shopping for a new winter coat takes me back to my childhood when I would be instantly excited for the new school year, new coat in hand. A feeling that this coat will experience many adventures like the many before it…

VINTAGE DENIM | DAY TO NIGHT

I recently booked to visit Paris in February and I couldn’t be more excited! This year has been very work focused for me, so I’m determined to travel more next year and get some things ticked off my bucket list. By bucket list, I’m referring to that mental wish list that gradually stacks up in the back of my head…

FINDING INSPIRATION

I’m sure we all have those times when we don’t feel particularly motivated or inspired by the world around us – it’s often difficult to pull yourself out of those phases, but more often than not, they tend to pass quite quickly. This is sometimes how I feel about blogging – I don’t always feel like I have exciting images to share, and I definitely don’t always feel like standing in front of the camera…

STYLING THE SLIP DRESS | AUTUMN EDIT

We have officially said goodbye to the last of the summer, but hopefully not the last of the sunshine – It’s about that time when I get the urge to rejig my wardrobe and make note of what I need for the new season ahead. When you find yourself in a bit of a style rut, there’s nothing simpler than a black slip dress to  help you get inspired again. I’m a strong believer that basics are best when it comes to opening up your wardrobe…

SUNDAY IN NQ | A PHOTO DIARY

Thought I’d share a little visual diary with you from Sunday – we spent the afternoon wandering around the NQ markets, before stopping for coffee and possibly the best banana cake ever. I love market stalls of all different kinds and I’m a complete magpie so it was the perfect way to end a magical weekend…

CURRENT MAKE UP BAG

I’ve finally put together a little make up post for you guys – this is something I get asked about almost daily, so I thought I’d share what I’m currently using on my face and why it works for me. It’s worth mentioning that I’m in no way an expert when it comes to make up, and I’ve pretty much stuck to the same look since I was seventeen. I’m hugely inspired by sixties make up – Edie Sedgwick, Francoise Hardy, and of course Jane Birkin, have all influenced the way I like to put my make up together…

SUNDAY STROLLS

This week has flown by for me so a chilled out weekend was just what the doctor ordered. I love spending Sundays wandering around Manchester in search of new coffee spots, before heading back home to watch a film and try out new recipes with my favourite human. It’s also the perfect opportunity to wear something laid back and comfortable – which I’m always in favor of in case you hadn’t guessed already…

MEMORY LANE

Last weekend I got to travel up to the Lake District for what felt like the first time in ages! We headed up there to celebrate a friend’s wedding and it was a much needed change of scenery. Sometimes it’s nice to find yourself with little or no internet connection and just switch off from city life…
