I don’t want to give away any of my styling secrets (it’s how I make my living, after all), but the golden rule of dressing is to mix opposites. So a casual jumper with heels, light textures with tough – it’s quite a simple formula really and it’s the basis behind this outfit. This jumper looks amazing with jeans, yes, but take it away from its natural habitat and it makes an otherwise dressy look feel that little bit cooler.
And the hint of orange? That was a last minute decision – these Topshop velvet heels are my faves for the party season and with THE orange Anya bag found half price at the Hackney Walk outlets? I think it works…
This Next skirt has also been a useful addition to the wardrobe. Yes, I have a velvet one too (!) but feel this one is more workwear-appropriate. It’s quite heavy so keeps you surprisingly warm and works minimally styled with trainers and a crew-neck as well.
With any luck, this post should be sitting on my shiny, new website. Nothing is really changing, it will still be the same content, but hopefully it will be easier to use, navigate and read. It’s been a long time coming (I’ve been on the same original template I started back in 2012) and I’m excited to be working on a better, more user-friendly site. I hope you agree!
