Stepping Out of My Style Comfort Zone in Milan

Fergus and I have just returned from Milan! We had an amazing little trip, exploring the city and visiting my Italian pals. I’d definitely recommend if you’re looking for a quick city break! If you have any questions about our Milan visit, comment them down below, because I’ll probably be answering them in my next post with my mini guide to Milan.

For this week’s post, I wanted to try to challenge myself and my typical style in Milan! Often, I find myself getting into a fashion rut and just wearing a similar combination of clothing over and over, so every now and then, I think I’ve got to break out of the routine.

A piece of clothing a usually shy away from is the midi skirt. I’ve long admired the midi skirts and dresses on the likes of my taller friends, celebs, and models, but I’ve always felt that I was too short too pull one off. Since I’m always preaching that anyone can wear anything though, I thought I should test myself to do the same!

How to Style Ugly Sneakers

How has your weekend and Thanksgiving been? Have you been rocking some killer fall/winter outfits? Comment down below what your current favorite winter outfit is! I’ve been up in Newcastle this week visiting my brother, exploring the city, and eating lots of food, most importantly of which was our Thanksgiving meal! Although we missed our Tennessee family, it was nice that Fergus and I got to spend it together and try out cooking it for ourselves! We did pretty well apart from our roasted veg could’ve been…well a bit more roasted! Anyway, the day after our Thanksgiving meal, Fergus took me touring around Newcastle and took some awesome shots for this week’s post featuring my ‘ugly’ sneakers!

We may call them ugly, but everyone who’s anyone in the fashion industry has been rocking these less-than-sleek babies, from Gigi Hadid to bloggers to models in the Louis Vuitton ads . They’ve also been called chunky trainers, dad shoes, and a fashion Frankenstein. There are obviously endless ways to rock them, but these are my top three ways I would recommend to pull off your own dad sneakers.

Good Things Come to Those Who GO

I hope you've all had a great week and weekend. I've finished my first week of my internship, and I have to admit, it was a great week! So many exciting things happen in such a short period of time, so I am also quite exhausted haha. 

Today, as inspired by a quote I recently heard, I wanted to talk about why I've decided to GO this year instead of waiting around for my life to happen and why you should GO too! (This will be my little cliché words-of-encouragement post.)

Denim on Denim

This summer, I've been channeling my inner Justin Timberlake circa 2001, with denim on denim (cringey!).  Surprisingly though, I'm enjoying rocking it and slowly learning how to make it work. 

The key to the denim on denim look is to either completely match your denims, like I did here, or  contrasting them.

My Holiday Packing Tips

I hope you can forgive me for missing last week's post.  I was travelling to visit family, and wanted to focus on them for a couple days.

This week, I am in Dublin, Ireland!! I thought it was appropriate to talk about my tips for holiday packing!  As a frequent flyer back and forth from England, visiting family, I've learned quite a bit.  Typically, airlines restrict you to a certain weight and number of bags when travelling, but with my tips you'll have room for everything you need, including space for all your purchases.  As per request, here's the tricks I've learned over the past seventeen years.
