Sure, I like variety as much as the next guy. But every now and then I find a combination that just works for a specific situation… and then I repeat it over and over again. For example, for a lazy Friday night it’s Thai takeaway + Malbec + Bachelor. For Sunday mornings it’s a gigantic Americano + Eggs Royale + digging myself out of a shame spiral. (Just kidding… sometimes.)
Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner with your partner, having a low-key pub night, grabbing drinks with your girlfriends or staying in to binge-watch Netflix on the sofa, Valentine’s Day calls for a special outfit.
Sometimes on a lazy Saturday I like to play dress-up in my wardrobe and come up with new outfit combinations. Mostly they’re crazy – but occasionally I stumble on something that actually works.
I think my husband and my bedroom floor would both agree that I have a lot of clothes. Many of them are random pieces from Topshop or H&M that I bought for a tenner and wore once but can’t bring myself to throw away.
(Note: I wouldn’t say I’m a hoarder, but I’m definitely miles away from adopting the Marie Kondo method that everyone’s freaking out about.
One of the best things about the time between Christmas and New Year’s is the sales. Sure, it makes me cry a little to see the things that I’ve just purchased as gifts at full price are now marked down to the extreme… but it’s a great excuse to pick up a few new items.
Anyone who has attempted to diet or detox during the month of December knows that it’s a ridiculous concept. The social calendar quickly fills up with fun friend events, family gatherings and forced merriment with colleagues. All of which require a healthy amount of fizz – and an unhealthy amount of wardrobe stressing.
Matching Stan Smiths + laid-back fall fashion + Zara obsession

A couple weeks ago, I posted about how my adorable 1-year-old nieces are nailing the art of best friend dressing. Of course, when you’re under the age of 10 you can pretty much get away with wearing anything and coordinating with your twin sis is sort of expected. But those two mini fashionistas reminded me of this adult duo that I stopped in NYC awhile back.
