Black, Brown and Cream

Style rules are odd aren’t they? People tell you how you should and shouldn’t wear colours together or crop tops if you have big boobs or mini skirts if you are over a certain age. The fashion rules that always used to confuse me are colour pairings. Pink and green shouldn’t go together. Who says? You can’t wait brown and black together. Well you can! wearing colours pairings the way you want really helps establish your personal style.

For walking in the woods I wore black, brown and cream together. They are all in the same tone but “shouldn’t go together” apparently. I love this outfit. Easy tones to match my surroundings. I had to add a little colour. A turquoise and pink eyeliner combination. Metalic turquoise pencil eyeliner from Gucci and a liquid bright pink from L’oreal. Using the Gucci pencil over the lid, as it’s the darker colour. Creating the look this way, make the whole makeup look less costume like.

What to Wear to the Beach at Christmas

The lul between Christmas and New Years is an odd one. my day job is a barista so I’ll be at work for a few days before ringing in the New Year with my family. What are your plans over the lul Between New Years?

Let’s talk about the outfit, shall we? The cardigan I bought while I was in Mallorca from Desigual is an absolute dream. Possibly the best cardigan I’ve ever owned. The bright animal print is a perfect example of a twist on a classic. I had visions of shooting this cardigan as a beach look as soon as I bought it. Who knew that it would be mum and I freezing our butts off on Christmas Eve by the pier to get the shots. I really didn’t plan for there to be so much wind.

A cardigan so bright deserves to stand out as the focal point of your outfit. I paired it with a pair of straight cut off jeans and a simple black T-shirt. A pair of nude trainers and my favourite fluffy handbag. Simple and relaxed styling for a Christmas eve shoot.

Cycle Shorts

Cycle Shorts trending since before the last month of fashion week. Variations of cycle shorts are all around right now. I’m not 100% sold on them but they look amazing on other people. Leonie Hanne and Chiara look incredible. Worn as a muted look with a white dress shirt, vintage Gucci slides and a cream hand made cable knit cardigan. The vintage/Parisian theme is highlighted with a tortoiseshell sunglass.
