Hello Autumn

I know, I know. The flowers have barely started to wilt and I’m already jumping on the Autumn bandwagon… but it is the best season. Slightly cooler days, the crisp air in the mornings and the completely gorgeous orangey-red leaves falling from the trees. I’m hooked. Not only does Autumn get me craving hot mugs…

Weekly Wears #13

I’ve got a love for leather. There’s just something about most leather pieces that have an instant injection of *style*. Anyway, this week I’ve been eyeing up the leather jackets that have been appearing with the influx of new season coats and jackets. Here’s three that have caught my eye… Okay, so this jacket technically…

New Approach to Dressing

Dressing is a simple. Dressing well is a complex skill, a skill I’ve yet to master. Recently with us entering a new season, my wardrobe has received its annual purging process. Each time I come to filter out my wardrobe to make way for new, I find myself surprised at the lack of good quality…

Checkmate

I’m not sure whether it’s the Scottish blood in my veins or the versatility of a check print, but I definitely don’t have enough of this in my wardrobe. The catwalks, as ever, provide inspiration. From the soft brushed check tops at Paul & Joe to the checked panels on the leather pencil skirts at…

Utilitarian

  When military inspired pieces graced the runways of Zadig & Voltaire, Isabel Marant, Marc by Marc Jacobs and more, it was no surprise. Each year utilitarian cool crops up, each time revved up and rediscovered. This season calls for city ready, slick style in the format of dynamic cuts, khaki greens and boxy accessories…

A New Kind of LFW // Pastels

Unfortunately after a slight change in direction of my career path, when LFW is going on, I’m no longer admiring the trends from the catwalks, writing about shows or coming up with edits to inspire people to buy. Instead I spent my LFW cramming show viewing on Youtube before and after work, reading show and…

Autumnal Inspiration

Is there anything better than autumnal style? I think not. Sure, pastels and pretty skirts are fun to wear, but nothing says me more than comfort. The bundled-up, cosy chic style that graces the streets in Autumn definitely gets me feeling inspired. I’ve been spending way too much time looking through Tumblr and Pinterest (follow…

Weekly Wears #11

New season has rolled around and we’re looking at some pretty lovely items this season. All over the internet I’m finding huge amounts of inspiration from the new products that have been landing on my favourite sites. Am I the only one that does 99% of my clothes shopping online now?! Anyway, here’s three pieces…

Weekly Wears #10

Remember that moment when Cara and co closed the Burberry Prorsum AW14 catwalk complete with personalised blankets/oversized scarves? Ever since that moment I’ve been patiently waiting for autumn to roll around, just so that I could bag myself an inspired piece – a great, big oversized scarf to curl up in when the weather gets…

Weekly Wears #9

I need more camel in my life. I’m not talking slobbery tongued humped creatures, rather that creamy not-quite-beige shade that adds an injection of cool to outfits. Whilst beige can make some of us washed out, camel is a one shade fits all kind of colour – promising to make you look instantly more stylish….
