From The Archive: 2016

The year of travel- from Aus to Africa- as well as some of my favourite ever photos, I hope 2016 brings a small dose of wanderlust (and fashion inspiration if not)!


Black, White and Winter Dressing

(Hat: ASOS (out of stock, but similar here), Coat: Orla Kiely, Top: ASOS, Trousers: ASOS, Shoes: River Island (old but similar here & here), Bag: C/O Aspinal)

If there’s two sartorial scenarios that generally have me stumped it’s travelling and, well, winter (read: about 5/12 months of my year) . The two combined usually equate to a dressing sum comprised of large layered knitwear (often bobbled), often ridiculously bright woolly hats, a red nose (models own) and jeans otherwise reserved for dog walking and working from home. Assuring you that my day-to-day dressing isn’t all pastels, posh jackets and fancy Victoriana blouses, of course…

However when I was recently invited on a trip to Rotterdam with a mix of bloggers and press- I was pretty sure stepping off of a plane (albeit the shortest journey) in my comfies wasn’t about to be totally socially acceptable. There’s something about airports that instantly shouts ‘FLIPFLOPS AND TRACKSUITS’ in my head- so for this occasion, let me introduce you to my new ‘I’ve-made-an-effort/effortless’ outfit (sans anything stretchy/fleeced and flat). I didn’t quite feel like Victoria Beckham arriving in arrivals, but it’s this look (something of a French mime artist) which has been my número uno go to for a weather friendly meeting-appropriate look (with no one having to know I’m wearing tights underneath either). With this frilled collar ASOS top being bargain of the year (and paired with my favourite kick flares that don’t make me feel completely tiny)- it was the perfect balance of comfort and ‘style’ (pardon the phrase) without the need to even touch the cosy flight socks…

Also! I’ve you’ve firstly read this far- thank you (I salute you)! But I also want to ask you, dear reader- a question. What would you like to see more of over here? I’ve been thinking a lot about blog content recently and what works over here so I’d love to know what you enjoy the most. Whether that’s style posts, travel, beauty, food or DMC’s (deep, meaningful chats FYI)- do let me know. Do you want daily posts? More or less videos? Every bit of feedback is useful- so thank you!
