While rummaging through my iPhoto earlier this weekend, I stumbled upon a number of memories from my summer travels and time at university. People have always told me that college life is far better than full-time work, but I beg to differ, as it really has been a fun ride since I graduated. Anyway, above is a photo from January 2013. Here, I'm wearing a cardigan my mother dearest knit for my daddy years back - perhaps the interest in textiles runs in the family?
One of the easiest styling tricks I find is to tie a shirt around the waist, which in turn provides slight definition to the body. For me, I typically like to balance out the grunge/hipster feel it gives with heels or a skirt. Here, although it's not particularly visible, I'm wearing a jacquard wrap skirt from Topshop that I bought on a whim.
Sacai's eclectic fusion of textures and colours for its F/W 2014 fashion show was, for me, a true demonstration of how mixing and matching isn't so bad after all. Personally, I've always been afraid of combining a variety of patterns and colours together for fear of looking like a mess. But if Sacai's show is to be any indication, doing just that could turn out perfect. See more of Sacai here.
