    Lanzarote Lookbook

    So you may or may not know but I have spent the last two weeks, trying, and failing, to get a tan in sunny Lanzarote. It was a thoroughly enjoyable family holiday including lots of beer, dissertation work, good food and good people. So today I thought I would share with you some of my outfits from the trip, a mixture of day and night attire that might give you some inspiration if you happen to be going away soon, a Lanzarote Lookbook if you like. I’d also like to say a quick thanks to my various photographers on this trip, Josh, Mum, Alice, Ellis, Grandad you absolute gems. So…

    10 x 10 Wardrobe Challenge Update

    So you might remember my recent post in which I said I was going to attempt to do the 10 x 10 wardrobe challenge. The challenge essentially means selecting 10 items of clothing, including shoes and coats, and wearing only those items over the course of 10 days. So I’m back today to let you know how I got on with it. I did myself a massive favour by choosing items that I really love to wear so I didn’t find myself particularly avoiding anything and I think they all paired together reasonably well so I could get a bit of variety. There was one stand out piece that I…

    10 x 10 Wardrobe Challenge

    By now you are likely to have picked up on my ramblings about capsule wardrobes and that I’ve been trying to implement my own over the last 6 months or so. The idea is that most items in my wardrobe go together, the choice is less overwhelming and I buy less and only what I need as the seasons change. Pretty simple right? Well I thought I would challenge myself even further over the next couple of weeks. I’ve decided to attempt the 10×10 challenge which was originally started by Style Bee. The concept is to select 10 pieces from your wardrobe which you think work together and wear only…

    A Week in Outfits: No Jeans Edition | Blogmas Day 4

    Happy Monday people, today for Blogmas I thought I’d share with you a week in outfits. I’ve done one of these before but you my remember it was mostly jeans and a jumper as I’m not very adventurous. So this time I thought I’d attempt a no jeans edition- no jeans for a whole week!! Anyone that knows me will be aware I live in my jeans and comfy knitwear so this was sure to be a task and I managed to pick the coldest week of the year so far to attempt this little fashion challenge. However in an attempt to be adventurous I’ve accidentally worn the same style…

    Winter Capsule Wardrobe Update | Blogmas Day 2

    So as some of you may remember I decided that I was going to attempt a capsule wardrobe earlier on this year. The basic premise is that you swap out your clothes seasonally so that they are weather appropriate (and so you don’t get bored of them) and you try to reduce your shopping. These swaps happen every 3 months when the seasons turn, then if there are some pieces missing from your wardrobe you can add things in accordingly but within reason. I saw the largest increase in shopping between Summer and Autumn where there is the biggest drop in temperature, I realised I had no jumpers that were…
