For the past several years I’ve been exclusively wearing some version of cropped trousers. (That is, when I’m not wearing a skirt, dress or shorts. Or a bathing suit. Or workout gear. Whatever, you know what I mean.) With the exception of one pair of uber-cute flared jeans from Gap, the whole issue of buying trousers by length is one that I’ve happily ignored. [Read more…]
One of my favourite ways to make an outfit look cool and non-boring is by mixing prints. For me, deciding which prints work together is really just about trial and error – and to get it right, you have to start with the individual pieces. [Read more…]
As much fun as it is to share my own daily attempts at awesomeness, it’s even more fun to analyse other stylish ladies and admire their genius outfit creations. Today’s street style addition to the Lovely List comes from the one city I love almost as much as London town: New York City. [Read more…]
For this chill Sunday, I decided I needed a laid-back, simple look to take me from coffee to shopping to PBRs and more. I bought these relaxed boyfriend jeans from H&M years ago and I just recently decided to distress them DIY style. I let loose with a pair of scissors and a razor (and I think maybe a cheese grater… the details are a bit fuzzy) – and this is what I came up with. [Read more…]
I’m a huge fan of Christmas jumpers – and not just in a “wear for your Tacky Sweater Party” sort of way. I like them in a “wear all throughout December” sort of way. Definitely whilst opening Christmas presents and drinking Bloody Marys. Probably to the pub on Sunday. And maybe even to work over a denim shirt and a leather skirt. I’m even on a mission to make Christmas jumpers mandatory for our office Christmas lunch in a few weeks – but I haven’t quite convinced the masses yet.
Every Sunday I go through the same feelings of general sadness about the impending work week. Nothing too extreme because I actually like my job – just not as much as I like doing whatever I want at all times. But I find it helps if I at least know I have some awesome workwear to rock during the week. [Read more…]
I’ve been thoroughly enjoying unpacking my cosy jumpers and chunky knits recently and layering up for the crisp autumn weather. And the fact that it was actually sunny and gorgeous outside today inspired me to could get out and about in the neighbourhood and take a few snaps. [Read more…]
I’ve certainly been having a thing with midi skirts lately. This Topshop gem is still in heavy rotation – and I’ve just spotted a few more that I’m debating ordering from ASOS. But I personally think midi skirts just don’t look as cute with tights as they do with bare legs – and as we head into winter we’re nearly in mandatory tights weather. (That is unless you’re going straight from your flat to an Uber to a restaurant… or if you drink minimum three glasses of wine before braving the elements.) [Read more…]
