Style icons to me aren’t always necessarily derived from cool celebrities, films or musicians; sometimes inspiration comes from somewhere a lot closer to home. My mum has always dressed amazingly (even if I didn’t appreciate it at a younger age) and I think that definitely plays a part in my fashion taste today.
For me an outfit isn’t completed without some pretty little accessories to make it really pop, and with my largely vintage inspired wardrobe I think a couple of vintage touches really work to make a look my own and help me feel completely myself.
‘Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.’ I have to agree with Miranda Priestly and her blunt sarcasm there (The Devil Wears Prada is a favourite film of mine). I wouldn’t really call myself a floral lover apart from the odd exception – although I could quite happily purchase all of & Other Stories’ long, floaty tea dresses.
The first day of February comes as a relief after what’s felt like a January of thirty one weeks, rather than thirty one days. I’m not one to wish my life away, but the New Year has dragged so much and it’s a little victory to have pushed through the return to the routine and made it that bit closer to spring!
