Put It In Neutral

How are you guys doing this week? Comment down below with how you’ve been and what you’ve been up to this weekend. You know I’m always nosey, and what to hear about what you’re up to.

This year one of my fashion goals has been to challenge myself to make neutrals exciting again. They’ve been all over the runways and street-style stars recently, and I want to try it out myself. While I’ve become inclined to grab a punchy pink sweater rather than a subtle camel one, I want to make myself a bit more comfortable with the classic tones again. I think it’s important to have that balance of color and neutral in my wardrobe and know how to navigate both seamlessly.

Little Life Update from Shoreditch

Have you all had a good week? Comment down below one good thing and one not-so-good thing that happened this week. My good thing is that I’ve really been enjoying this week is spending time with my friends! Thursday night I went out for cheese fondue with them and then went to go and see Mary Queen of Scots, which was amazing by the way!

not-so-good thing is that we’re still on the hunt for the right apartment in London, which seems like an impossible task. It’s exhausting, but I still have faith we’re going to to find the one for us!

Anyway, for this week’s post, I giving you a much-needed life update! Here are all the things I’ve been up to, how I’ve been settling in here in London, and what my plans are this year.

The Boiler-suit: From Utility to Trendy

How are you all doing al this chilly January evening? I can’t believe that January is already almost over. Its flown by for me, but I bet some of you would argue that it’s been the longest month ever. Anyway, I guess we should leave behind the topic of chilly Januarys and get back to the topic we’re all here to talk about, fashion!

One of the rising trends I’ve seen this winter/spring season is the oh-so-unexpected boiler-suit! That’s right, they’ve come back around and are extremely on trend again. It somehow joins casual and chic, utility and trendiness for a delightfully unexpected look! Here are some of the reasons I love a boiler-suit, and why I think you might too!

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 Find the Jeans of Your Dreams
The Power of Plaid

It’s finally feeling like fall, friends! Whoop whoop! Are you taking this cooler weather in your stride, perhaps going on walks in the crunching leaves or breaking out your coziest of sweaters? Maybe you’re even sipping a warm latte, wrapped up in a plaid scarf, which leads me on to the topic of this week’s post!

Of all the fall trends that accompany the changing trees and falling leaves, I have to admit that plaid, tartan, or check my might be favorite. With it comes with a very British association from things like Burberry’s iconic pattern, traditional Scottish kilts, Vivienne Westwood’s designs, and London punk rockers. Plus, I just love the fact that tartan originated in Scotland and each different pattern represented a different clan. It’s such a cool and interesting start to a pattern’s history unlike any other’s.

Corduroy's Big Comeback

Sorry this post is a tab late! How are you all doing this week? Have you been up to anything exciting this past weekend? Comment down below if you’ve been on any exciting adventures, seen any good Netflix series, or gotten some much needed things completed.

For this week’s post, I wanted to talk about one of this season’s biggest trends, corduroy! While it comes around every fall/winter season, it seems to be making an even bigger comeback this year and in some new and interesting ways! I’ve seen corduroy in more colors, styles, and shapes than I’ve ever imagined and I’m kind of loving it! I don’t have a love of corduroy pieces yet myself, but the few bits I do have, like this dress from Zara, are keeping me warm and stylish! I’ve come up with a few tips for rocking corduroy your own way!

My First Fashion Week

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, but I HAVE to tell you about this past weekend!! Last weekend was honestly the BEST. WEEKEND. OF. MY. LIFE. If you didn’t already know, last weekend was London Fashion Week and I was lucky enough to be right in the thick of it with the company I’m interning with, HPR London. I can’t even explain to you the excitement I felt, but I’m going to try in this post! After reading, if you have questions about my first real fashion week experience, don’t hesitate to put it down below, because there’s no way I can cover everything just in this little post. (Also I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to upload last weekend, but I think fashion week is a pretty good excuse!)

How I Find Confidence in Crazy Outfits

How is your weekend going? Apart from the England loss, which was kind of devastating *tear*, I've had a pretty productive week. I've just arrived in San Diego which I'm feeling super excited about since I've never gotten to visit here before! I've been to most other major cities in Cali, but I've heard some of the best things about San Diego itself! Have you ever been? Comment down below what your San Diego experience was if you have and if you have any recommendations (especially food lol, you know I love my food). 

Anyway, today I just wanted to talk to you guys, pretty casually about how I feel confident enough to wear the things I do, like a rainbow striped jumpsuit! A lot of the time I get "only you could pull that off" or "I wish I could rock something like that", and while that's an incredibly kind compliment to me, I don't want you to think you couldn't rock something just as out there or bold as me, because you can!

Why Casual Can Still Be Colorful

How are you doing on this sunny Sunday, lovely people? I hope you've had a brilliant week and weekend filled with picnics, barbecues, and swimming! Comment down below what you've been up to! This week, we celebrated the 4th of July with our American pals! I mean, what's more unexpected than Englishmen hosting an American Independence Day party?! (We jump on any excuse for great food and hanging with great friends of course!) Anyway, tomorrow might be Monday, but that also means a fresh start so let's make it a good week! 

When you think casual, comfy clothing, the first thing that pops into your head might be some dull baggy sweatpants (Reeboks with the strap, aye!) or some nike shorts and a black or grey tee, but casual doesn't have to be that boring. Today, I want to discuss why casual and comfy doesn't have to mean black leggings and a black top! All clothing is getting more and more comfy these days, so there's no excuse not to look put together at the same time as being comfortable. Here's how to stay comfy while still keeping colorful!
