Reiss On

13 Mar

I have been feeling a little bit in the style doldrums recently and after lengthy sessions browsing the websites of my favourite highstreet shops and occasionally venturing in to one, I haven’t really found anything that stood out and really grabbed me.

So it was with great pleasure that I stumbled across the Reiss 1971 collection and these three images. To me, these three outfits define what I like about clothes – effortless yet incredibly stylish; fancy free yet edgy.

If only the weather hear was a little bit warmer and I didn’t have such a nasty habit of mishaps with my lunch whenever (literally, EVERY time) I wear light coloured jeans.

 

Amongst the Flowers

15 May

I think I shall call this the ‘vintage picnic’ trend. To try it out, look for beautifully flowy florals and light airy fabrics and aim for just the right amount of kitsch but with a grown up elegance too. To save it from being too saccharine and girly, add a touch of masculinity in the form of brogue-esque or lace-up shoes.

1. ‘Attention Please’ shoe, Office. £55.

2.’Arthur Daily’ shoe, Office. £45.

3. Printed Heart Stud Earrings, Accesorize. £4.

4. Nude Lace Trim Dress, Miss Selfridge. £35.

5. Floral Printed Day Dress, Miss Selfridge. £45.

Mayday

1 May

This outfit was perfect for a very casual afternoon drink with an old friend in a beer garden of the Abbey Tavern in Camden. Little did I know when I set off that the Camden Crawl was happening today so not only did I enjoy a nice cold glass of rosé on a roof terrace but also got to see a variety of stand up comedians perform throughout the afternoon.

1. Espadrilles, £14.99. Office.
