Balance, it's a tricky thing to crack.
Whether that be balancing work and play, family and friends or simply the amount of chocolate cake you consume in comparison to vegetables; balance is something I'm forever striving to get just right.
Balance is also something I like to achieve when it comes to styling. A dash of this here, a sprinkle of that there and voila, a grade A look is achieved.
Styling for me is something I like to call fash maths, it's all an equation; get the proportions correct and you're in for a sartorial treat.
Take this look for example; a stereotypical "Megan Ellaby" get-up. Wearing my trusty denim dungarees there is a clear boyish overriding vibe to the look with accents of femininity thrown in with a ruffled sheer blouse by Sister Jane and some serious embellishments in the form of a cluster of brooches adorning the front patch pocket of the dungarees.
Combinations like this are a sure fired way to making me feel confident with my style choices, balancing boyish pieces with feminine touches is something I have always championed and something I feel I always will.
With my fash math formula in mind it's two parts masculine to every one part feminine.
Dungarees + Ruffled Blouse + Loafers + Brooches = SUCCESS!
The metallic loafers have a distinct masculine feel to them, albeit in a more feminine antique gold finish, however, throw in the Gucci Dionysus bag with it's chunky, almost gothic metal wear the mathematical fashion formula is balanced once more.
I would love to hear if you have any equations that you subconsciously think of when you're getting ready in a morning, let's share our fash math love and all become styling grade A students together.
DUNGAREES- NEW LOOK, BLOUSE- SISTER JANE C/O ZALANDO, BROOCHES- ASOS, LOAFERS- C/O KURT GEIGER, BAG- GUCCI
I adore this look! I love how the boyish look is made more feminine by the sheer shirt! Another winner.

Loving your logic Megan 🙂 I need to come up with an equation of my own…also the bag is looking on point!
I have to say i’m loving the metallic loafers!
Love your Fash Maths approach – I guess that how we should look at styling! Add this – add that – subtract if it’s too much!
