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)!

I’ll be honest, I’m not very good at the sexy smart look so many girls seem to wear so effortlessly. The last time I happily wore a jacket and trousers (and thought I looked marginally cool) was in Sixth Form (anything that wasn’t my year 11 kilt tended to make me feel remotely sophisticated), and I still haven’t quite acquired the knack of making it look effortless, or anything less than workwear…

…So, in a feeble attempt to try something smarter, Reiss introduced me to their beautiful new Spring collection, to which I turned my hand to this somewhat Florence Welch (meets, ahem, James Bay) inspired seventies smart look; a beautiful terracotta loosely tailored suede jacket, Victoriana blouse (which me and my favourite Princess seem to similarly have fallen for) and some chunky heels to keep things ladylike too. I’m completely obsessed with this robe style jacket for these transitional months (you’d be amazed at how much warmth it keeps in too, if you’re a nana like me)- and paired with some go-to accessories makes for the perfect tube-to-meetings-to-LFW-shows look, without scrimping on the smart either.
