I thought I’d try something new this year and set some New Year intentions. Intentions are more gentle than resolutions.
Believe it or not, finding my comfort zone has actually given me the confidence to experiment more with my style. I really love to elevate the ordinary, taking my simple style and adding in a detail that changes things up.
I admit black may not be your colour of choice when it comes to what to wear on a hot summer day but come the evening, when the temperature drops a little and the sun’s rays no longer penetrate, it’s perfect. And if you have a golden tan then all the better for showing it off.
I’m one of those people that will buy the same thing in every colour; as long as it comes in black, white and/or blue. My recent obsession is denim skirts.
Finally it’s time to show some shoulder, don some sandals and protect those peeps with some sunglasses. Yes, I’m excited that I can leave the house without a coat and not worry that I’ll freeze my butt off 2 hours later when the weather suddenly decides to play a joke on me.
We all know how amazing and versatile a crisp white cotton shirt is but how many of you own a white linen shirt? Linen has quite a different feel, often stiff when you first wear it but softening with time, the more you wear and wash it.
Ha, ha, I was referring to boyfriend jeans. I’ve discovered the softest, comfiest boyfriend jeans, ever, from The White Company. Let’s be realistic when you choose to wear a pair of boyfriend jeans, comfort is usually on your mind.
Finding good textiles to use in the bedroom is vital if you want to create an inviting, warm space that you feel comfortable in. I thought I’d share a few of my favourite brands and items, as I begin to share my home with you on Style&Minimalism.
If you buy one coat at this time of the year it has to be a trench coat. It’s the perfect transitional coat and a versatile one; wear it over a cashmere knit on chilly days and then swap it for a simple t-shirt when the temperature rises a few degrees.
As we’re coming out of winter I feel like it’s a good time to freshen things up in the house. I’ve got some great bedroom decor ideas from brands like Menu, The White Company and West Elm.
