A PINAFORE STORY | HOW TO STYLE A BASIC PINAFORE

23 November, 2017

Recently, someone I work with said he noticed I layer a lot of my work outfits and wondered if I didn’t get humid during the day. That was the first time my attention was drawn to that and as I went through some of my pictures I noticed well, there might be an element of truth in his ‘observation’.

TIPS AND 3 WAYS TO WEAR A MEN’S BLAZER (OR OVER-SIZED BLAZER)

02 November, 2017

I love a well-structured blazer especially if it’s a men’s blazer. If you are a regular on here you will know I cop as many men’s wear as I can when I get the chance. Thanks to the men in my life and even though over-sized or men’s blazers are a thing now I feel like it may be a bit tricky to pull them off without looking like you are drowning in the blazer or too tomboyish.

NUDE BODYSUIT X MUM JEANS

02 October, 2017

While putting together killer outfits every day is a great idea. In reality, that’s not always the case. There are days that our closet has a mind of its own. Days that we feel overly bloated and that has been me lately. On days like that, I find myself gravitating towards basic. Jeans, button downs, t-shirts, you know.
