Happy Sunday you lot, I've not posted on a Sunday in SUCH a long time, in fact I think it was well before I started YouTube which is somewhat SHOCKING!
If you caught my last post which was about the winter goals I have set myself this year, I mentioned how I'd actually like to FINALLY get round to posting three times a week so hopefully this Sunday posting lark will become more of a regular thing. If that works with you guys of course? Do let me know if there is a day that works better for you, I am ALL ears!
Soooo, as you may have noticed I unfortunately missed Thursday's usual post day, which I am SO sorry about. I tend to write things as and when the ideas come to me and Thursday's post was set to be somewhat personal, but when it came down to the day of posting, my opinion had kind of changed so decided to hang fire on that one and instead give you an extra posting this week.
The blogging world, especially that of style blogs has seen a shift in the past year or so.
Gone are the days of chatting through an outfit from head to toe and here are the days of the personal, thought provoking blog posts. Something I personally love to both read and write.
However, sometimes it's nice to strip things back to basics and simply discuss an outfit, AMIRIGHT!?
Whilst I adore learning more about my favourite bloggers and what makes them tick, and I absolutely ADORE sharing my own stories and seeing your feedback on the matters at hand, sometimes I'd love to go back to the good ole days of style blogging when we just talked and read about clothes. So today, thats exactly what I'm going to do and perhaps one post a week will be dedicated to just styling, rather than all the oversharing, what do you say?
So with that, I bring to you one of my favourite looks in a long time and I bet you can guess why... It's inspired by the SIXTIES of course!
It's absolutely no secret that I wish I had been born in the 1960's, I love everything about the era, from the whole teenager revolution, the music, the colours, rebellion and of course the style!
The 1960's inspires so much of my life, from the music I listen to, the way I deck out our home and my wardrobe.
This look is no exception from the rule due to the white accessories, silhouettes and of course the checkerboard print.
Another reason as to why I ADORE this look so much is the fact that the checkerboard piece in question is by my all time favourite fashion house, House Of Holland!
You all know my backstory and history with HoH by now (if not, check out this post here) and I'm thrilled to have a piece or two from their latest AW17 collection; a collection I was lucky enough to watch at LFW last season! It's one of their best collections yet IMO, inspired by my favourite eras with western touches and their tongue in cheek slogans, fit with Woody Wood Pecker in tow... As you do. It's a complete mash up, only achievable by Henry and his outstanding creative team.
The Marc Jacobs boots, I must admit were a bit of an impulse purchase ahead of LFW this season. I knew I wanted a pair of white boots for the season ahead as they were seen throughout the catwalks for AW17, however, I didn't envisage investing the way I did.
I am SO glad I went for it though, as they haven't left my feet since and are truly the most comfortable pair of boots in my collection and with a real Go-Go boot vibe as per the 1960's. They work seamlessly with my wardrobe and I'm treating them as I would my usual black ankle boots as they quite literally work with EVERYTHING, just check out my Instagram page if you don't believe me.
And secondly the Finery London Kirby trousers, they're simply fabulous.
Tailored to absolute perfection and completely true to size they're a great piece that I've worn at least two times a week since they stepped into my life in September. A great investment piece and one I urge you all the take a peek at as they work SO well for both daywear and night.
So there we have it a few of my most favourite pieces all rolled into my current favourite look, what do you say?
I hope you've all had a good read and it's inspired you in some respect for the week ahead. Let me know what you reckon and have a stellar week.
