An Update on my 2020 Promises

An Update on my 2020 Promises

So you may remember at the start of the year, I wrote a post about how I was planning to approach the year ahead through my promises. 2020 has definitely not been anything at all like any of us planned, so last week I began to think about how I was navigating through these strange times and whether I’d managed to stay true to my core beliefs at the same time and thought it would be good to share a little mid-year update with you all.

How I’ve Updated My Eyewear for Summer…

How I’ve Updated My Eyewear for Summer…

I love the change in seasons and how it brings about new, emerging trends in the fashion world. It always makes me feel much more inspired and adventurous when it comes to putting outfits together and I find myself rooting through my wardrobe to find what I have tucked away from former Summers that I can pull out to fit with the upcoming styles and trends.

May New In Wishlist

May New In Wishlist

It’s officially British summertime (although you wouldn’t be able to tell for the non-stop rain we’ve had this week) and that is well and truly reflected in what I’ve seen in all of my favourite retailers ‘new in’ sections this last month. Think lightweight, floaty dresses, denim shorts and thin knit vests, with barely there sandals or fresh white trainers. Continue reading “May New In Wishlist”

Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

This is a bit of a different post for me today, but following on from the recent events surrounding the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement across the world, I’ve been reflecting on not only my own experiences as a lighter-skinned black woman but also what I’ve been doing so far in my life, to contribute to racial equality.

Let’s Talk About Mules…

Let’s Talk About Mules…

Mules aren’t exactly new to the fashion game, however they are big this season like never before and this is all thanks to the statement style from Bottega (yet again!). I remember a couple of years ago when the Gucci Princetowns were released and the high street went crazy for dupes in that shape and style, but even then I don’t remember mules being so on trend as they are at the moment.

The Spring 2020 ‘Must-Have’ Tee

The Spring 2020 ‘Must-Have’ Tee

As you all probably know by now, I’m a huge fan of filling my wardrobe with lots and lots of basics. I don’t do too much colour or print and I try my best to steer away from anything that stands out too much unless it’s for a special occasion. I like to keep my shapes basic and my colours neutral as I feel that creates quite a timeless, classic look for me and is an easier way for me to re-invent my wardrobe and get the most out of wearing things over again. Something that I love to throw into the mix whenever I can, however, is a basic with a little bit of a twist. Continue reading “The Spring 2020 ‘Must-Have’ Tee”

April New In Wishlist

April New In Wishlist

I cannot believe it’s May already! I feel like March had about 68790 days and April had about 3, so here we are at the beginning of another chapter of 2020 and lord knows what this month is going to bring!

I don’t know about you guys, but during this lockdown we’re in at the moment I’ve been doing so much more window shopping (..and actual shopping – oops) so my wishlists are absolutely packed full of beautiful items that I’m loving for Spring and Summer this year.
