(Dress: Olive Clothing, Cardigan: Dorothy Perkins, Boots: Sarenza)

As ever, I have my fingers in many different sartorial pies. Waking up one day yearning to emulate a member of Haim in washed out jeans and a band t shirt- and another determined on nailing the ladylike elegance that comes so naturally to starlets like a certain Miss Hepburn. On this particular morning I woke up with Twiggy as my muse, this black and white check dress in tow (after seeing this image it seemed like a match made in heaven) and unbrushed hair waiting to be whipped into a silly beehive stance- which in this weather, is always ideal.

Additionally, as you may have noticed I've tried snapping outfits slightly differently. It was of course a lucky coincidence coming across this bike, but part of me likes making a little bit of a story out of my outfit posts- a nice change from a white wall don't cha think? Fingers crossed I can keep it up!
