You’ll never guess where I got this vest

Five things I enjoy:

  • Plaid
  • Giving new life to old items of clothing
  • Finding hidden treasures
  • ‘Borrowing’ (in the permanent sense) clothes from my dad. Mostly because he has some cool vintage stuff from the ’70s. But partly because it really annoys him. Especially when I sneak into his room to steal his white athletic socks. This was a daily activity when I was in high school – but now I challenge myself to nab a pair or two whenever I visit.

Sunday style: boyfriend jeans and Oxfords

what I'm wearing: Sunday style

For this chill Sunday, I decided I needed a laid-back, simple look to take me from coffee to shopping to PBRs and more.

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.)

Outfit Ideas: Laid-Back Weekend

This outfit looks so comfy and cosy, I just want to put it on right now. With the crazy-warm autumn we’ve been having in London, this Topshop wool jacket over a casual T-shirt would be perfect. Plus I love the mix of the masculine rubber watch and super-girly David Yurman watch.
