Is there any pattern easier to wear than stripes? Whether it be vertical or horizontal, I’m a sucker for a bit of stripe action. There’s something really laidback and casual (which is definitely my style) about them, yet they never look lazy or messy. I also think stripes help add a bit of dimension to not only the clothes, but to the wearer as well.

While I do love me some stripes, do not be fooled: not all stripes are created equal, as the classic navy-white combination will always reign supreme (but that’s a post for another day).
While it’s true it’s not every day I’m able to wear a fancy gown… in fact come to think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever worn one, but that doesn’t stop my undying appreciation for a floor-length dress with a bit of character and charm. Though some are not ones that would usually appeal to me (Marchesa I’m looking at you even though I’ve been in love with you gowns for at least over a decade), there’s still something about all of them that I love. Case in point, the gowns below that drew my attention for various reasons.
I guess I’ll have to make do with just looking.
It’s been a while since I’ve shopped at Jack Wills, but after having a quick nosy on their site the other day, I’ve seen it’s time to end my self-imposed JW hiatus because (like always) they have loads of great stuff that’s made their way to onto my wishlist. Check them out below.

Olivia Palermo is on the cover of net-a-porter’s weekly The Edit and I love it.
While the accompanying article didn’t actually say a whole lot (in fact it didn’t actually say anything), the pictures and outfits in particular more than made up for it.
It was interesting seeing Ms P styled in ways that we’re not usually used to seeing her, proving that she looks good in just about everything.
For more from the shoot (and the irrelevant article), check it out here.

There’s a new brand I’m obsessed with and it goes by the name Kitri.
Born out of the inability to find well-made clothes that don’t cost an arm and a leg, Kitri was created to fill a void in the market for young professional women who didn’t want to sacrifice style just because their bank accounts didn’t agree – this is something every woman can relate to.
Naturally upon first glance at the dresses I fell head over heels in love with the collection and already started creating a wish list of pieces to buy once payday came around. So what exactly makes this brand so special? Well for one, the brand interacts directly with the customers meaning prices are much lower because there’s no “middle man”. Additionally, you can expect to find great designs that are feminine and girly but not too delicate, as well as staples every girl needs in her life.
What’s more is that with a limited number of pieces produced, you don’t have to worry about seeing someone else in the same outfit as you – another thing every woman can relate to – unless they are equally as stylish as you are 😉 PLUS, with an update collection coming once a week, you can be sure that your wardrobe is the freshest, chicest one around town.
Watch this space because you can expect to be seeing some of this brand’s chic pieces on here in the nearby future. Check them out here.
Yess! I can always count on The Row for some classic cashmere basics to brighten my day. Their two cashmere offerings in the form of the Jose cashmere and silk-blend turtleneck, and the Agenta cashmere off-the-shoulder sweater, have filled me with an all-new whelm of inspiration. The simple, yet totally elegant shape of both tops, ensure these pieces will always remain timeless and chic.

I love when two of my favourite things come together to create something great, which in this case would be fashion and music. Online luxury retailer Farfetch, is the first brand to integrate Apple Music into its app, iOS and website to create a more enjoyable shopping experience. To celebrate this new partnership and their two new playlists, Farfetch asked bloggers to recreate outfits inspired by music style icons.
I’ve been a big fan of the double denim look aka the Canadian suit for longer than I can remember (probably ever since Britney and Justin’s now infamous music award outfit), and it’s one of my favourite looks to rock, so when I saw a picture of Rihanna having a double denim moment, I knew exactly what kind of outfit I wanted to create.
Instead of the traditional denim fabric, but still wanting to keep that essence of texture denim has, I chose a light blue floral lace shirt from Nº21 and paired it with a pair of similar colour jeans. The lace puts a twist on the classic double denim look, but still looks chic and easy to wear.
