I absolutely adore posting about fashion and style, so was surprised to find I hadn’t yet updated you all over here. I find creating mood boards to be great in that they help you to pinpoint your individual style and get down to the specifics of what you like. Without further ado, here are my latest favourites. Make sure to leave a comment letting me know how you’d describe your individual style and what trends you’re gravitating towards- anyhow, enjoy xx
Dainty jewellery- jewellery brand Mejuri has my heart. Their tagline, “the new luxury- fine jewellery for every day” sums them up perfectly. At the beginning of this year I treated myself to three of their beautiful pieces, all real gold and incredibly affordable for being so. A beautiful necklace with a honey bee pendant, croissant hoop earrings and the satellite diamond chain necklace. They are perfectly minimalist and absolutely chic- just look at those freshwater pearls!
Chignon buns- I never underestimate the power of a bun, especially as modern and sleek as the chignon. It’s undeniably simple yet incredibly elegant and shows off highlights beautifully.
Loose curls- While my go to hairstyle is a messy top knot, I like to change it up and let my hair down sometimes. On these days I like to use my straightener to add some loose curls and give my hair much needed body and texture. I’ve not quite perfected the art of my curling my hair as of yet, but I do a better job every day. Other days I’ll do cheat curls- I’ll braid my hair and leave it overnight, then undo it halfway through the morning. Usually it ends up more crimped though!
Chunky braids- Before I knew how to do braids, I had always wanted to learn and would ask my friends to teach me. One day I just woke up knowing how to braid, like what I’d been learning on and off had suddenly committed itself to memory! I can french braid, fishtail braid and do milkmaid braids, but of late I’ve been loving a loose plait with wispy bits around my face.
Lacy white tops- how pretty and feminine are these styles? I have a long sleeved top similar to the one in the first picture, except it has billowy sleeves that are ruched at the cuffs and pearl buttons to fasten. I like to pair it with fancy denim, which brings me onto my next style favourite.
Light blue jeans- I have a few pairs of these in mom jean style and two tone denim. High quality jeans with embroidered or pearl encrusted elements, for example, can really elevate a look! This extends to denim jackets as well.
Linen- Linen is soft, breathable and temperature regulating, making it perfect for tops and dresses in the summer months and bedding all year round. My go to for stone washed french linen is I love linen.
Dainty florals- At this point, it seems like my wardrobe consists entirely of pretty floral patterned pieces. A few of my most loved brands are papinelle and auguste the label for boutique sleepwear and clothing. I’ve purchased from both recently but am absolutely smitten with my gorgeous new robe and flannelette pyjama set. Papinelle use mother of pearl buttons for select pieces in their range.
Bohemian dresses- Spell and the Gypsy, while on the pricier side of what I’m used to spending, are absolutely brilliant at ethically sourcing and creating hip, bohemian pieces- they have everything from band tees to long, flowy dresses. For my birthday I bought a skirt from one of their recent campaigns with instagram influencer Lisa Danielle.
Slip skirts- As much as I adore the slip skirt trend, I haven’t yet purchased one for myself, but hope to do so soon. The satin midi length is my idea of the perfect skirt. It’s gorgeous in block colours or simpler patterns as seen in the top right picture at the end. How good do those polka dots look?
Light and dark neutrals- You can never go wrong with timeless design and chic neutrals, both of which go hand in hand. Neutrals are the base upon which I build my wardrobe and compose many of my everyday outfits. Brands seed heritage and status anxiety are my go to’s for well made staples in clothing and ethically sourced leather bags.
