My Little Travels...
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.
Are you all getting in the holiday spirit? I’ve finally started wrapping some gifts, and I have to say, buying people gifts is one of the most joyous things about this time of year. I think it makes me so happy because gift giving is really how I show someone how much I care about them.
For this particular blog post, I want to rewind to a couple weekends ago when Fergus and I were in Milan! Although we were only there for a very brief visit, I feel like we squeezed in a lot, and I have to share it with all my favorite people (aka you!). Here are my recommendations for where you need to go and what you need to see in Milan if you ever visit!
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!
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!
Today, I’m back home in Derbyshire. I’m sad to be away from the excitement of London, but I have to admit it is quite nice to relax for a bit from all the bustle and rushing around of the city and I’m excited to be hanging out with some of my family!
For this week’s post, I wanted to look a back at some of the most Instagrammable places I’ve visited while in London in case you ever want to visit them yourself! Below are the most picturesque places I’ve seen while I’ve been here and places I definitely think you need to check them out for yourself! Comment down below if you have any questions or if you have any recommendations of gorgeous places I need to visit in London next!
How has your week been? I've had another London packed week I must admit and I'm feeling to lucky to be here experiencing this. While walking around running errands for my internship, I stumbled upon some really amazing vintage and second-hand shops in the Shoreditch area! It reminded me of this gorgeous, Gianni Bini dress I found for a steal, second-hand at my old work, Style Encore Conway, which is a gently-used women's clothing shop! ( I miss that place and my work pals so so much and finding amazing steals!) In this post I wanted to talk about the benefits of shopping second-hand, vintage, or consignment clothes for both your own wallet and the planet!
I hope you've all had a great week! I'm so sorry I missed last week's post, but unfortunately my apartment was broken into and my laptop was taken! I was of course devastated, but I've decided that dwelling on it won't solve any problems, plus I want to continue enjoying my time here in London, which is exactly what this post is dedicated to! I've been getting up to some very exciting things and I want to share them with you and document them for myself as well!
Hope you are all doing well on this warm summer Sunday. As promised last week, this week I wanted to talk about some of the best places we visited in San Diego while we were there! I hope you enjoy learning what we got up to and maybe if you ever visit you can visit some of my recommendations below!
So sorry for the late upload! After watching England scoring six goals in yesterday's World Cup match and my laptop charger finally giving up, I completely forgot yesterday was even Sunday at all! I must be going crazy. Anyway, we're back on track now and we can get on with this week's blog post. After our recent trip to Destin, Florida, I wanted to talk about why I really love the beach and what makes it such a happy place for me.
