Ruffle Ruffle…

It’s been a good while since I’ve written or posted anything for which I apologise. After travelling and then going back to work and some other matters I’ve found myself with very little motivation to write anything.

However, I’m trying to change that and I’m trying to ignore the voice in my head that’s telling me I’m not good enough at the moment.

It’s finally my favourite season. When it got to the end of September I was dying to dig out all my scarves, big coats, big jumpers and plum lipsticks. I’ve also been finding myself recently trying on different clothes which I wouldn’t usually wear when I’ve been out shopping, and being pleasantly surprised when they’ve fit or looked good.

Here’s one I was particularly happy with. This little Ruffle Style Shirt from H&M. I’ve had my eye on the ruffle style and I’ve been really liking it so I thought I’d try it out and needless to say I’m loving it. It is a bit out there for me, and something I wouldn’t usually go for but I’ve been inspired by other women to try new things with my style and this I did.

It’s smart and classic and effortlessly chic. All the things I look for in my wardrobe. I think I’m going to get some wear out of this one. What do you think?

Go Monochrome or Go Home…

I’m always a big monochrome fan. It’s my go to, my sanctuary. I feel safe in monochrome. I feel cool, chic and smart. It’s always a winner.

So here’s one of my favourite go to monochrome outfits I’ve been wearing lately. It’s still quite chilly here in good old Seaside Southport, so I’m clinging onto the Wintery clothes until it will be too hot for a chunky scarf, and my trusty big coats. Farewell my loves, until next year.

Coat and Jumper: Zara / Culottes: Mango / Scarf:New Look / Trainers:Vans.

It took me a while to feel okay with wearing Culottes. But when I finally bit the bullet, I thought what the hell was I thinking putting these bad boys off for so long? They are incredible comfy, which is something I always want with outfits. Comfort first. If you’re not comfortable in something, ditch it. These guys are so so great. Perfect for travelling in, perfect for a long day out, and perfect paired with a pair of strappy heels. Match them up with a big coat and I think it looks great, even better with some sort of trainers. I like to pair them with my Stan Smiths if I’m not wearing my Oldskools.
