Getting (slightly) better at updating my blog?! Making the most of my day off from my shop to work, of course, it's never a 'day off' is it, let's face it. Although we are now in full on winter here, snow and all, and these pictures are full of pretty Autumn leaves and bare legs(!).

 I had to make an emergency trip to M&S for black tights yesterday as every single pair I pulled out of my draw were laddered-how and why?! Oh and then my puppy Stanley proceeded to attack the brand new packet...oh maybe thats why. This is actually a very colourful look, for me, I kind of imagine girls would have worn something similar to this down Carnaby Street in winter in the sixties, what do you reckon? Probably with tights of course.

I usually like to stick to mustards, rusts, creams and browns but I thought this sixties inspired dress went perfectly with this Afghan coat that I found in near pristine condition in Italy, and I've now made the decision to part with it (because I have three, that's a bit much for anyone). a girl's got to eat after all.

number one flare fan


Waistcoat: Beyond the Vintage
Top: Waiste Vintage
Flares and Boots: Free People

Photography: Kaye Ford

I have literally been living in these Free People flares. So much so if you look closely at these images there is a definite food stain there, haha, I'm such a messy eater. Honestly I love them so much I've bought them in two other colours, they fit so well.

I know I've contradicted myself from my last post when I said I wasn't a trouser person, but these are FLARES. Flares are different. They're just so much more comfortable and flattering than your average trouser, and make your legs look that little bit longer. I'm a fan for life, everyone should own a pair, you can honestly wear them with anything.

Nostalgic


Dress: YAS via ASOS
Boots: Jeffrey Campbell (old)

Photography: Kaye Ford


I think mustard has to be one of, if not my favourite colour. I just love the warmth and nostalgic feel to this iconic seventies colour, not only does it epitomise for me the colour of my favourite decade, but it's the colour of sunshine and hazy summer too.

 And not only being my favourite colour, the beautiful 70s style flared sleeves of this dreamy maxi dress, it ticks all the boxes for me. I felt like a floaty seventies princess when we shot this in Hampstead, it suited the lake setting behind me perfectly.

I'm really such a fan of maxi dresses, especially when the weather has got all colder and that, because I'm really not a trouser or tight person. I've tried I really have, flares yes but I can't wear them all winter I'll get bored. I just find maxi dresses so flattering, whether most trousers I don't find flattering at all?!

Y.A.S Queen





Dress: Y.A.S*
Cecile Boots: Free People
Fringe Jacket: Vintage from LA
Cord Baker boy: Brixton via ASOS

Photography: Kaye Ford

If anyone watches Broad City you will get the post title reference haha.

Another one from my amazing shoot with Kaye, I'm *almost* blending into my surroundings here. Nothing beats crisp Autumn leaves. I love the prettiness of the pattern and the frills on this YAS dress being toughened up by my old and very battered vintage western fringe jacket, one my of my most treasured possessions I picked up when I went to LA the first time.

As much as I'd like my style to stay on the bohemian girly side, being in the UK it's just not that possible, and I do always tend to lean to a more of a western vibe sometimes, especially in winter when those floaty dresses just don't cut it and I'm forced to cover my legs up for fear of frostbite. But I love blending the two and mixing up my style.

Jewel Tones


Dress: Freshman's Sheffield
Shirt and Belt: Waiste Vintage
Boots: Free People
Kayla Cap: Brixton*

All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey. How is it so far into Autumn already? As you cans see I'm still trying to get away with no tights until the (literally) bitter end. To be fair when I met up with Kaye to shoot it wasn't even that cold.

I had such a great shoot with her, she totally got my vibes and is such a babe, was so pleased with how all the images came out! Can't wait to shoot again soon. I've been in and out of anxiety with blogging and myself at the moment, so it was a real pick-me-up to be able to have such a lovely shoot, and made me excited to start doing this properly again! So I tried to style all the outfits I brought in similar colours and tones, so first up is this incredible vintage fringe dress.



Trying to bring a little turquoise into my wardrobe recently, and when do you ever come across a 1960s vintage turquoise leather fringe pinafore in perfect condition? I found it in Sheffield but the label says Brighton Leathers. So I've brought it back home?! haha.

 I've just bought some greeny/turquoise cord flares too but I'm not too sure how to style them just yet, but don't want them to sit in my wardrobe forever. Have a look here and let me know what you think? I got them in rust first and I practically live in them. But I really want some in cream cord, now that would be perfect.
