In the past, I probably never would have thought that pairing a t-shirt with a pleated chiffon maxi skirt was a good idea but recently I’ve been updating the categories I mentally assign clothing to.
I wanted a comfortable but striking outfit to attend a friend’s birthday drinks and this was definitely a hit.
The wedge trainers perfectly marry the contrasting elements and the accessories add the right amount of edge.

Yesterday I went into town for a bit of shopping and a cocktail with Amber.
I wanted to wear my busy, floral mirror print pencil skirt and paired it with all black basics with silver details.

It was my last chance to take some photos with Skadi before she went to her new home. She’s not a very good poser so the photos don’t really do her justice.
I’m also debuting my new hair by Helen Jordan at Vidal Sassoon. It’s the first time I’ve had my colour done professionally in 5 years and I must say I’m rather pleased with it.

This month I’ve been obsessed with re-defining my style and pin-pointing my new wardrobe staples.
I see style as something that constantly evolves as you mature and change circumstances and habits and I love that about it, but I also love those pieces you can wear year after year, without feeling they’ve become tired.
I currently love easy but dramatic dresses, drapey cardigans, printed sheers, harness bras, tight or harem style bottoms and leather boots and jackets.
I’d also love to hear what you’re wardrobe stapes are.
