If Only: Outfit of the Day 43#

 Th weather is driving me insane right now (see, there’s my compulsory weather-related moan of the day). Glorious sunshine one moment, blustering winds that I swear must come direct from the iciest depths of the North Pole the next. It’s time to start layering, and I really love matching motifs and patterns to the under layer.. or the bottoms.. so if I can match all three, that’s just best of all! I’m so ready for autumn now!

If Only: Outfit of the Day 30#

My own take on traditional English style today, a perfect autumnal look for chilly English mornings… but not quite chilly enough to warrant tights. I have a (fairly meagre) summer tan to show off for a few more weeks yet, thank you very much. Simplicity, minimal accessories, berry tones… yes, I’m definitely happy with this one.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 25#

I think today’s styled outfit is inspired by London’s art galleries, many of which I have today frequented on a grand artistic tour of idea fuel. From the colours, the painterly skirt and the vintage-print blossom top, I’ve mellowed the mass of patterns and brights with Burberry’s beige trench cape; a modern twist on their classic, reliable beige trench that works so well to balance a busy outfit. The boots and crochet are probably considered an unusual choice with the skirt and top, but I think it would work really well.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 17#

Forget the all black attire (more or less) of yesterday, today, I want colour, and florals, and a phone case that looks like an ice lolly! Today’s styled outfit also totals to considerably less than usual… no designer required. Jewellery is kept to a minimum, allowing that loud playsuit to speak for itself, while the blazer gives a pop of colour that breaks up the whole look. I love it.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 10#

When I was at school, I used to worry about how depressing it must be to wear office attire – a limited variation between black, navy or grey, pinstriped or plain, suit trousers or pencil skirt. I was convinced that, if I ever found myself working in an office rather than living the dream as my own boss (*touch wood and hope that it’s a dream that I can continue forever*), how would I be able to find a reason to keep a smile on myself if I could not experiment? Yes, these were the sorts of things which concerned sixteen-year-old me, and yes, I got over it, partly because I learnt the joy of experimenting with business attire and finding ways to express myself through my wardrobe, while not looking inappropriate during meetings. Today I shall be speaking with stylists, designers, MUAs and hair stylists, brainstorming with them and we put together the first of my personal Sleeping Maidens project, and therefore while it’s not a serious work-related meeting, it will hopefully lead to some amazing opportunities, and so if I could raid any shop in the world, taking what I choose free-of-charge, I would choose something playful; a colourful bow tie and a bright, floral skirt.
