Let’s talk about skinny jeans

Sometimes you just have to dress a bit like Zorro, right? I’m a bit late uploading these outfit photos, this was at the start of summer and it was the last time I wore black skinny jeans. Can you believe? The reason being, I actually split them when I was wearing them that day. Absolute heartbreak. But then the weather got really hot and I wasn’t wearing jeans anyway so I actually went a few months with no black jeans. I recently purchased a new pair but they’re not really skinny jeans (they’re the black version of the ones in…

A Few Hours in Venice

Venice was an unexpected treasure for me. Most of what I’d heard about the city was that it’s busy and smells bad. It was definitely busy in places – like the Rialto bridge, but it was easy enough to get away from the crowds by walking down the smaller alleyways. And as for the smell, despite it being over 30 degrees we didn’t notice a bad smell at all. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I suppose I just wasn’t expecting it to live up to the hype as I’ve found most touristy places don’t. So I was really…

My Travel Essentials

Travelling can be stressful so I like to make it that bit better by making sure I have my travel essentials with me. This can vary a bit depending on where I’m going but it’s more or less the same. I’m sure everyone has their absolute must-have items for going on holiday. Mine used to be a fair bit more extensive but I’ve narrowed it down to what my essentials are and I wanted to share with you! Water bottle and snacks I barely go anywhere without a water bottle so of course, I take it on holiday with me.…

The Black Shirt Dress

I have a confession. These photos are from a year ago. I never got round to posting them though and I still like them and this outfit (definitely going to be repeating it this summer!) so I thought I would just go ahead and make this post anyway. We visited Bath on our way back from our trip to the Jurassic Coast, which is still one of my favourite holidays, it’s crazy to think it was a whole year ago! A few things have changed since this time last year but this shirt is still one of my favourite items…

How I’m Leading a More Considered Life

I’ve been interested in minimalism and sustainability for a good few years now. I haven’t written about this previously as I am still a fair way away from the end of the journey to leading a more considered life, if it even has an endpoint. However, I thought it might be of interest to other people that struggle with where to start or wondering how they can make some easy changes. I’m a huge believer in taking everything one step at a time. This is one of the reasons that I love Sophie’s blog (also credit to her for the…
