Personal style

Litttle Black Mini

Nick Campbell sunglasses, Alexander McQueen pleated mini dress (similar budget options here, here and here), Larsson & Jennings watch, Elena Ghisellini leopard print bag (similar leopard print bag here) and Saint Laurent ankle boots (budget option here)

The story of the little black dress is a tale as old as time, and for good reason. It possesses the magic trifecta; timeless, versatile and universally flattering. Perhaps the most convenient piece to make it’s way into in ones wardrobe?

I’m all about the short hemline of this LBD by Alexander McQueen. It’s beautifully made but not at all serious; which makes it perfect for day-wear whilst stomping around in slick black ankle boots.

All Black

Nick Campbell sunglasses (similar black sunglasses here) John Smedley cashmere jumper (alternative black jumper here), MonDéfilé leather midi skirt (budget option available here), Celine trio bag and Saint Laurent ankle boots (budget options here and here)

Taking the all-black everything mantra rather seriously right here in what is clearly my go-to hue. These pieces have all being seeing the light of day a fair bit lately… I’m pretty sure these Saint Laurent Chelsea boots have rarely left my feet. Nothing wrong with keeping favourites on high rotation!

Perfect for days spent walking around West London with my other half as we try to conquer our London to-do list before we leave for warmer pastures in a couple months.

The Edit

Get the look: Nick Campbell sunglasses (similar black sunglasses here), Equipment blue silk shirt, Cheap Monday jeans (with DIY frayed edges), Larsson & Jennings watch, Proenza Schouler fringed satchel and Yvonne Kone pumps

Fashion need not be serious, amiright?! Which is why this week, I’m engaging in a light-hearted style war featuring a few of this seasons coolest handbags with Reem Kanj of Five Five Fabulous and Harvey Nichols. The challenge (if you can call styling super slick handbags a challenge) was to put my own spin on three delicious styles; a tote, satchel and bucket bag.

This Proenza satchel managed to get me on board with fringing, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff. Give me leather tassels all over. Check out the feature over at Harvey Nichols, where you can vote for your favourite looks (it is a style war after all) right here, here and here.

The Blues

Blue hair by Glasshouse Salon, Nick Campbell sunglasses (similar black sunglasses here), Studio Nicholson top, Larsson & Jennings watch, Topshop neoprene skirt and black Birkenstocks

Taking tonal dressing to the next level with blue hair and of my favourite pieces by Studio Nicholson. Olivia at Glasshouse Salon took me to the blue side recently – it’s always fun to break free my from usual blonde – if only for a short while. After all, dusty blues and navy will always be a good idea.

My appreciation for neoprene skirts continues with this crisp white, voluminous style from Topshop. I’m all about the bold silhouette; which could almost be considered ladylike if it wasn’t for the blue hair and failsafe Birks…
