Ladies Lumberjack Shirt

I’m crazy about this Autumn; All my knitwear is freshly laundered and for the first time smells gorgeously cruelty free as we’re embarking on replacing all our household products with lovely brands that are against animal testing! If you have any recommendations, please leave them in the comments.

I’m totally into these delicious berry shades this year and this shirt from Dorothy Perkins perfectly encapsulates those colours. I bought some shoes at the weekend that I’m excited to match with it so I’m sure I’ll be showing you another way to wear a lumberjack shirt this Fall. The Minnetonkas never fail, though!

How To Layer For Autumn

The shirt is 2-3 sizes bigger than I’d normally go (it’s a UK 18) for two reasons. One: It was the last one in the store, haha! Two: because I really wanted this loose, slouchy fit. I’ve stopped caring about size labels because nowhere can guarantee the same fit. I often take two or three sizes into the fitting rooms so I can pick out what suits my shape as well as my size. If in doubt, I go big. I love loose tops with skinny jeans and I can always pull them in with a belt over leggings or tights. I have such a variety in my wardrobe now that it just doesn’t bother me if I have to size up anymore. I apply the same rule to band shirts, I get the biggest they have and chop it down to my own specifications.

I’ve had a bit of a rough summer, but I’m so excited for all things now the weather has turned: From fashion to my business to my blog. You’ll start to notice things changing around here over the next few months as I develop more of a focus, but there’ll be more on that later. Please do let me know if you have a favourite feature that you don’t want to disappear, though! You can get me on Twitter if you’d prefer not to comment.

Outfit Post: Summer by the River

Couple, By The River

It’s been a stressful week. On Tuesday my little Frank monster got sick, then he got better so we left him at Grandmas and went frolicking to Whitley Bay to see Midlake and hang out with some friends. During the night on Thursday he got sicker so we cut our trip short to be with him: Train tickets, taxis, vet fees, sleepless nights. He seems to be doing a lot better since yesterday, he’s desperate for food and wagging his tail again, but man what an utterly terrifying five days.


Boho Style, Paisley Scarf

Today we went for a quiet little walk to get some fresh air and perspective. This gorgeous patch by the river is literally 10 minutes walk from our home and a stone’s throw from the main road out of the city centre – crazy huh? It was so beautiful and peaceful, I certainly feel refreshed. I wanted something cool and casual to throw on after the week’s events – jeans and brogues are my absolute go-to and I’ve been wearing this scarf to death since it arrived.

Really long necklace

SlinkyLinks sent me this gorgeous necklace. I’ve been looking for a long silver toned necklace for a while; I think a super long necklace is a wardrobe staple, great for breaking up a highly patterned dress or a really boxy fitting blouse. It gives a lovely focus line right down the front on your body, making you appear slimmer. The chain of this one hangs right down through the tassles, making it heavier so it’s sits perfectly straight on your chest. Melodie has such unusual pieces in her shop, be sure to pop over and take a look.
