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…

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…
