Favourite Outfits: December

December was a strange, strange month. So busy, as Decembers usually are, and a whirlwind of emotions for me. Does anyone else feel like they’re in a bit of a rut this month? I’m struggling to get going after Christmas! Taking photos of my outfits went to the wayside a little, but these were myContinue reading “Favourite Outfits: December”

Paris: Illustrated packing list!

When I was little, I used to draw whatever I was packing whenever my family went on holiday together. As I was deciding what to pack for a surprise trip to Paris this Sunday (eep!), I remembered drawing my outfits, and thought it would be fun to recreate one of my little illustrated packing lists:

Some Summer Outfits

It’s HOT. I’m no good at dressing for summer. My wardrobe is full of jumpers and layers, but hardly any lightweight clothes. It kind of feels like an enforced capsule wardrobe.

Current Wardrobe Situation & Moodboard

And it really is a situation. I don’t have room for an actual wardrobe in my apartment, so I currently have a rail in our bedroom: (not the most glamorous photos, I know…but lets be real) To the left of the cubby hole thing is Harrys smarter clothing (i.e. shirts, trousers, ties), and then everything elseContinue reading “Current Wardrobe Situation & Moodboard”
