That in-between time

Afghan Jacket: A gift
Cord Flares: Free People
Jumper: Villa similar here
Hat: Brixton*

An all cream ensemble that co-ordinates with the Brighton Pavilion perfectly and reminds me of snow, which is what we had up north today, meaning I've spent most of the day in my pyjamas binge watching Netflix, instead of sitting down and scheduling the work I was planning to. How long does the excuse 'I't Christmas' last for?

It's that funny 'in-between' time of Christmas and New Year where you're still munching through those leftovers and are half drunk every day (just me? I hope not) patiently waiting until NYE, which to me to be honest is always a total disappointment, so this year I'm just going to head back to Brighton and go with the flow, I've made no plans and I don't want to, because we all know the best nights happen by chance.

Any way back to the outfit, winter makes me want to dress in creams and neutral tones, along with the autumnal sort of colours of course, I feel strange in all black as it's not 'me'. It's hard to not live in jeans though, which is why these cords are perfect for an alternative.

Dress: Waiste Vintage
Boots: ASOS (now on sale!)

I had the absolute pleasure of shooting with Kaye again, on the day I went back up North for Christmas. (Talk about cutting it fine!) We shot these in Dead Wax Social in Brighton, a place I frequently visit and think, oh it would be great to do a shoot here. And so we did. I mean, just look at that wallpaper! Kay completely got my vibes and I absolutely love the results.

I literally hacked this seventies vintage maxi dress into a mini when I was late to my own Christmas party last week, and I've still not had a chance to hem it properly. It's definitely the most festive dress I own, I realised when going through my wardrobe, I literally am not a dressy up person I've come to find. But I'd wear this dress all year round anyway, I love the light pink embroidery and the flared sleeves. This is my Christmas day outfit for sure, braving it with the red lips too! Because if you can't wear red at Christmas, when can you? And at least I know no one else will be wearing this one!

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.

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?!
