    60’s Florals and Suede Boots

    60's cover

    My wardrobe is a total mishmash of styles and influences. I’ve got a fair amount of mid-century style; the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s are my favourite decades for sartorial inspiration. This look is much more 60’s themed though, and a perfect summer combo to cheer up London streets. This floral dress first featured on my Insta all the way back in April when I was still wearing tights! The weather finally picked up enough this August to be able to wear it with bare legs and ankle boots. I think dresses / skirts and ankle boots are basically acceptable attire from spring right through to autumn, no?

    Khaki Hooded Jacket and a Maxi Skirt

    Khaki Hooded Jacket cover

    This hooded parka is a new purchase from Chinese retailer Romwe and I love it. I discovered Romwe through Spanish blogger Helena Cueva over at Mi Aventura Con La Moda. As they’re based in China, I really wasn’t sure what to expect, so I didn’t go crazy and purchased 4 items to get a feel for the brand. This coat and my embroidered loafers (featured here) arrived in  just a few days, as I think they were stored and shipped from a European warehouse. I also ordered a handbag and some sunglasses which took a couple of weeks to arrive but turned up in perfect condition. I’ll feature them on the blog soon.

    Retro florals and tailoring

    This dress is one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe. In fact, I’m wearing it on the cover photo for my website! I bought it a couple of years ago, specifically for my friends’ summer wedding. It was my first purchase from vintage style online retailer Pretty Kitty Fashion, and I was so pleased with my choice.

    Collectif Bright & Beautiful florals

    Collectif Bright & Beautiful cover

    This gorgeous dress is another of my January sales purchases and I just love it! It’s from the Collectif Bright & Beautiful range, and I picked it up in their half price winter sale. The fabric is slipperly, with almost a scuba-like feel to it. I was worried this might feel a bit artificial, but it actually helps the dress to sit nicely and creates a flowy silhouette. It’s long enough to be able to wear without tights once the temperatures rise, but short enough to maintain that 60’s vibe. The high, wide neckline really balances the dimensions of this dress too.

    Default Dress and Sparkly Flats

    There’s a piece of advice that often pops up in fashion blogs.. It’s along the lines of “Have a default, fail safe look for days when you can’t be bothered to think about what to wear”. I’ve never really considered what my failsafe look would be, since I’m still very much working out my own style and signature pieces.
