Back in Black

Posted in There's {a} Way

back in blackHello strangers! Apologies for the long absence! Moving and work and life seemed to overtake us for a bit. I have been so inspired of late by Carrie Mulligan’s simple and chic red carpet looks as she promotes The Great Gatsby. Hence my interpretation for a day of brunch and a stroll through Hampstead Heath on a lovely bank holiday.  When wearing a monochrome outfit an easy way to add a little visual interest is to play with textures and shapes. Pairing a harem trouser and a voluminous top with a structured jacket creates a  balanced contrast that pulls the look together. Cheers!back in black back in black

On the Waterfront

Posted in There's {a} Way

on the waterfrontHello! So I am currently in the midst of moving and just turned in the keys to our flat in Islington today! So bittersweet, but truly excited for the adventures in store for us as we head over to West London to set up home. As a result of moving and packing my attire has of late has been loose and comfortable: boyfriend denim, a white t-shirt and a slouchy cardigan borrowed from the hubs.  When wearing over sized clothing, an easy way to pull the look together is by adding a clean cut statement coat. The perfect addition to walk into an afternoon meeting on a quick break between the hustle and bustle between London boroughs. Cheers!
