Downtime January

Following all the Christmas festivities, January has arrived, and no matter how hard I try to fight it, it is undoubtedly the most depressing month of the year.

Autumn Florals

Florals are in fashion all year long, but they don’t need to at all look saccharine. In fact, for fall/winter 2015, they have had a more boyish feel.

Swap pretty for edgy with a contemporary, masculine twist to keep florals looking fresh this fall.

Back to knit

It is that time of the year when we start thinking about softer and warmer textures and long for the jumpers stocked at the back of your wardrobe.
Today I have teamed up the super soft knit with heavy silk blend and pastels.

Peach Perfect

I am playing with pastels again! Check it out!

Don’t just sprinkle a bit of pastel here and there around the edges of your clothes. Dive right in, and go pastel head to toe with one bright colour.

If you end up with a glut, you can always keep it in the deep-freeze section of your wardrobe:)

Peachy Summer Corals

If you ever find yourself stuck in a style rut, playing with colour combinations is a perfect way to liven up your wardrobe. Today I have combed peach and brown. The soft pastel-hued peach gives off a summery and feminine vibe and when combined with the neutral, yet sturdy brown, creates outfits that are both chic and perfectly balanced.
