Breton Leopard II

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I’m back with another OOTD and it feels good! This look is something I wore a couple of weeks ago to a Barburrito masterclass and have since recycled a couple of times. It is in all honesty, a bit of an evolution from this look I wore back in November when Simon and I took an impromptu trip to Paris.

I think that this print clash is really easy to pull off. The simplicity of breton stripe in classic, nautical colours is so ubiquitous and timeless that it has become a neutral in itself. The same can be said of leopard print… at least in my wardrobe.

Together therefore, they work really well, and as much as I hate the term, are particularly hard working items; I feel as though I can wear them with anything, anywhere. They’re also sort of reminiscent of bombshells like Brigitte Bardot and Alexa Chung so I can pretend I’m maybe even half as hot as them.

So partial am I to leopard print and breton stripe that I’m not going to promise that there won’t be another look in six months time that is suspiciously similar to this one…

Spring Inspiration

Hello everybody. I’m aware it hasn’t been that long since I posted, but nevertheless, it’s a gap I’d like to briefly explain. As many of you know, I suffer from anxiety and depression, and this week I’ve been having a tough time of it. But I’m feeling better and ready to get to it again. Still, I’m going to start off small and share some inspiration I’ve been compiling on my tumblr. I’m so happy to see the sun and even a little bit of blue – rather than grey – sky shining in through my skylight and it has got me thinking about spring and by extension, summer! Hurray!
