I'm feeling a little frazzled right now I must admit. Life's getting pretty hectic in the best kind of way but I feel like parts of my work are suffering because of it, a feeling I don't like one bit.
There's so much I want to achieve this year and whilst I'm well on my way to doing just that, I can't help but feel that the day-to-day things are slipping further and further out of reach. I've not had a moment to myself for some time, let alone the time to film a YouTube video or sit and write the blog posts I've been wanting to write. I love what I do with all my heart but when work trips, meetings and other work related engagements take over, it's often tricky (for me at least) to continue with the creative side of things, the side of things that I love so much. So I guess what I'm trying to say here is sorry. Sorry for the lack of longer blog posts and the lack of videos in general and sorry for being a little all over the show and I guess a little less chatty in the comments sections of my work, it's just one of those things about being a one man show.
But I'll get there.
I'm flying to Barcelona tomorrow for Primavera festival as part of an exciting job and I couldn't be more thrilled about it; the line up is insane and I'm really chuffed with the outfits I've put together but mainly I'm looking forward to the 2 hour flight where I'll be able to finally get some things written down and hopefully up on the blog very very soon. I'm also lacking in imagery after a photographer I worked with went MIA with my photos so it's ballsed everything up a little bit I must admit. But hey, such is life, I'm super happy and healthy albeit a little tired and busier than usual but I'm loving it, I just wish I had a few extra hours in the day to do the things that kicked this whole journey off (writing and filming content)
Wow, that was a little heftier of an intro than I intended, I guess the guilt is real hey? But anyway, how are ya? Lets chat in the comments, I feel like it's been ages!
So without any digital imagery I thought it would be nice to share a handful of film snaps of an outfit that I've been gravitating towards a lot lately, one of those feel good summer looks that combines my favourite pieces and a trend based piece of two, which I feel works to make a very "me" summer look.
Styling myself in the summer isn't something I've always been good at. I often struggle with how to make an outfit interesting where layers aren't involved but feel that in the last few summers I've found my groove and I think I could go as far as saying that I prefer summer styling to winter styling... For now at least.
It's all about taking the pieces that I love all year round like my favourite sunglasses, an oversized band T-shirt and a pair of trainers and making them work for a warmer climate.
It also helps when you've got a pretty sensational statement skirt to work with too, I mean how gorgeous is the silhouette of this Miss Selfridge piece!? I'm honestly in love and feel it would make for such a beautiful summer occasion look too when paired with something a little dressier than my trusty Queen Tee and trainers.
Looks like this and a staple summer dress or two have allowed me to find my flow with summer styling and if we're lucky enough to get a summer like last year's then I'll certainly be ready.
Whats your go-to summer look? I'd love to hear about the pieces that make you feel fabulous and summer ready, it might inspire an outfit or two in me also.
