(Dress: C/O Sister Jane & here, Bag: Aspinal, Boots: Zara (old but similar here)

Sometimes with style, it takes something more than a scroll through Pinterest, some square-eyed blog reading and an hour rifling through In Style to get that real pang of inspiration. Maybe it's a PMT thing (usually)- but whenever I'm having a bit of a style slump it takes some real deep chats (or, ahem, Alexa Chung's Vogue documentaries) to get this gal back on track. Queue her latest addition with none other than Leandra Medine of Man Repeller (a.k.a pure genius)...

Fortunately my friend Kristabel is more alert with articles and uploads than I'll ever be, so after she swang this my way I was sorted (swang? Is swang a word?) Anyway. With style, I sometimes feel as if it's growing up without me, becoming tailored, sophisticated while I still flounce around like Veronice Corningstone running for her next junket- but after a session with Leandra and Chung- I felt more confident, inspired and ready to hire a damn team too (I jest...kind of). And... as Alexa finishes her video with Leandra; 'I'm off to continue my quest for world domination and bigger sleeves...'.

  3. I've been loving the look of layering patterned sleeves under dresses and it never occurred to me that the sleeves could be textured themselves!

  16. Your style has always been one of my favourites, after all you were one of the first blogs I followed and got me into wanting to start my own. I always struggle to find inspiration sometimes and I've never thought of looking for other ways, I really must track down where to watch Alexa Chung's Vogue Documentaries because she is definitely an inspiration!

  32. I love this dress on you! You have amazing style and part of the appeal to me is that you're not going full normcore and monochrome, but keeping your style as girlie as it's always been, but with some added grown up femininity.
    Also, how is London so lush and green already!!
