I’m on a fashion frenzy at the moment. I can’t stop thinking about outfits and I’m blaming it on this blog! Whilst I’m evolving my sense of style I’m still conscious of waste and the importance of investment pieces vs throw away fashion. As a blogger there can be a pressure to constantly wear something new. With that in mind I’m trying to rework individual pieces to create different looks without always buying something new – unless I decide it’s a worthy addition. Cultivating your own sense of style is a confidence booster but a passion for fashion can leave you with piles of clothes that have hardly been worn. In today’s post I’m taking this three piece outfit and explaining the place each item has in my wardrobe.
Very recently it felt like I had turned a corner with street style photography. This time last year I was mostly posting lifeless looking pictures that did nothing to reflect my personality. This was really frustrating because good imagery is what I’ve been striving for from the beginning and boy it hasn’t been easy. Part of the issue was my confidence in front of the camera which I spoke about in this recent blog post. With practice I’m learning how to look more relaxed and carefree in images without resorting to a big cheesy grin. Beyond that I’m learning through trial and error how to keep things cohesive plus things to look for when location scouting and the best types of natural lighting. View Post
It comes as no surprise that I’m my happiest when I’m dressed comfortably. I’m not the type of person to forgo comfort for a trend, believe me I’ve tried it and the results weren’t good. This doesn’t mean I don’t love a trend, it just has to love me and then I’m all over it. This week I caught sight of the first leaves beginning to change colour. With that in mind (sorry) I’m diving into outfit ideas (not sorry) for a new season and Esprit came up trumps. View Post
I’m going away next week so I wanted to show you the skincare products I will be taking with me. Kiehl’s surprised me with a wash bag with some products recently and I plan to make good use of it. Clear bags like this are great if you are traveling with hand luggage as you don’t need to bother with the clear bags they give you at the airport. I tend to take the minimum when traveling unless I’m going to the beach so no masks, exfoliators or any of that nonsense. It’s usually cleanser, moisturiser, serum, SPF, deodorant and shampoo.

I find the combination of a white t-shirt and blue denim very satisfying. It’s like olive oil and balsamic vinegar, simple yet bloody good. View Post
