Inspired by the sixties

This post is a lil’ different to my usual pre-planned, location-driven, countless photos to choose from instalments on the blog, but I wanted to share these photos nonetheless. My incredible Mum held her sixtieth birthday party on the weekend, and the theme was sixties; an era that already shapes many of my style choices and one that will forever inspire me with colours, designs and spirit. After too much deliberation (there are so many cool icons I would have loved to dress as) Jack and I were encouraged by one of our favourite films, Legend, to go as Reggie Kray and his wife Frances (although Jack actually ended up being Ron so he could wear the glasses…).

Old School

For autumn this year, it seems a lot of past trends are circulating, giving the season an old-school, retro feel.

Lust List October

The month of Halloween is upon us, so it’s time to get the pumpkins out and pretend we’re still young enough to trick or treat.
