HAPPY NEW YEAR, TRIBE!

I’ve been having a bit of a ponder about New Year’s Resolutions; their importance (or lack thereof), their success rate (or lack thereof) and their true intentions (yep, same again). It is the latter, specifically, which sent my brain a-spiralling.

More people seem to berate those making resolutions than make ones for themselves these days and I’ve decided to avoid becoming that person. Instead, to get on board with the resolution makers. To support each desire spurred by the simplicity of a spinning planet. If there’s one thing we don’t need at the moment, it’s a world where people feel belittled for attempting to better things themselves and, increasingly more so, others.

I don’t need a real public declaration of the things I hope to achieve or people I hope to help in 2019 (not my jam), but I do promise to increase the frequency of your oft-request outfit posts. And I genuinely wish you the best with everything you’re setting up to achieve.

What I Wore:
Karolina embellished heels from Ruby Shoo
Leopard coat from ASOS (similar here)
Premium tights from New Look (best bargain everyday pair I’ve found!)

I wear jeans about once a year. It’s not that I have an issue with them (quite the contrary, I think they’re a classic component of any chic closet), I am simply too sleepy to put anything more than a dress together in the morning.

When I started to pack for a beautiful wedding in the Cotswolds, it seemed a great time to throw a pair on in an ode to smart packing (1 extra shirt and dress means nada to carry!) and kick it old school. As a cherry on top, I got a beautiful blow dry from Rush Kentish Town before hopping on the train and my stylish created two mini victory rolls as a vintage nod that would hold more bounce for the following day’s celebrations.

Max prep. Max chill. Max annual denim.

What I Wore:
Black crop top
Vintage tie-front off the shoulder top (similar here)
Turned up Levis 501s
Floral platform heels

A small introduction to my two new favourite things caused such a stir on Instagram Stories that I truly couldn’t snap these shots or write these words fast enough!

This is your official introduction to a spectacular (and sustainable!) custom printed clothing brand and a gadget that turns your smartphone photos into retro-styled prints.

First off, Doc Cotton. The brand offers 100% cotton clothing made from scratch and digital printed to feature the patterns/colours you love, with no nasty dyes. They support local and up-and-coming talent by allowing users to feature their prints, or upload their own, on a selection of shirts, skirts, and dresses.

Naturally, I opted for my own bespoke illustrated of unicorns, rainbows & stars with gold buttons and white threading. The online upload (and print sizing) were incredibly easy to figure out and one week later, my favourite (and only completely unique) item of clothing arrived!

On the same time as the KiiPix, actually.

Essentially, KiiPix is a pocket-sized printer which unfolds into a mini vintage photo booth. You place your phone above the lens with your desired photo placed on the frame, hit the shutter, and wind a small dial to pop-out a Polaroid (or FujiFilm Instax mini, in my case).

It’s completely wireless, lightweight, and offers a great option for creating physical mementos after the memories happen.

What I Wore:
The Doc Cotton dress, detailed above, tied with a vintage rope belt
Julian Hakes Mojito heels

baby blues
Last week I was beyond fortunate to take a bit of tim off work so I could show one of my beloved American babes around my hometown for the first time. I was such a breath of fresh air – I haven’t really taken the time to look at London through bright eyes since I was, well, a baby with bright eyes.

We spent days eating everything we wanted, walking everywhere our heels could handle, and dressing up purely for thrills. Hence this jazzy little number in a heatwave.

No regrets.

What I Wore:
Brocade off the shoulder skater dress from ASOS
Two band mules from Next
Mint blue leather cross body handbag from Smith & Canova
