how to nail “off duty chic” easily.

1th December 2015
Whether we will all admit it or not, there are some days when I personally really cannot be bothered. I want to simply curl up in my sweat pants and drink hot chocolate all day but life happens, errands need to be ran and deadlines need to be met. The issue is that although I might feel like I’m having an off day I certainly don’t want to look like I’m having an off day so I’ve come up with a few factors to consider when you’re feeling a little “CBA”; L A Y E R S Layering is an effective way of creating a more interesting outfit as well as providing more warmth which is a massive YES in my books. My usual mix of layers starts with an amazing quality white tee, with super soft fabrics for comfort and a flattering yet relaxed feel to tie in a knot or tuck in loosely. In my eyes white tee’s should always be an investment. The next layer consists of a blouse or shirt, today I opted for a rock and roll casual shirt from Franklin & Marshall that has a heavy thick fabric and statement black and red check to sit perfectly under a textured coat or jacket, at this time of the year I love leathers, Suedes and faux furs. B E D  H E A D My hair takes an age to wash, dry and style so I usually just wash it once a week otherwise I’d never get any work done.

My hair takes an age to wash, dry and style so I usually just wash it once a week otherwise I’d never get any work done. When washing day comes around I never know what my schedule is going to be like and sometimes there’s simply not enough time so a messy top knot or braid with loose bangs  and natural fly-away hairs looks extremely effortless and yet elegant too. Dry shampoo and texturising dust will become your best friends here.

This is where investing in those high end accessories will transform your outfit and finish it off perfectly but with very little effort. You are well aware of how much I love this little Chanel combination at the moment and I feel like it gives the entire outfit which has a very relaxed feel, a little feminine fluff!

Hello April, the most exciting month of them all!
Ad Embarking on a journey of timeless treasures, my passion for antiquing began in the warmth of late summer 2019. When I discovered my father’s old boarding school tuck trunk nestled in the attic of their home. Since then, my weekends have unfolded like chapters in a novel, meandering through antiques emporiums and brocantes across the country.

Each trip unveils a tapestry of tales from bygone eras - from weathered pickling jars and vases to opulent French chandeliers and steamer trunks, and with each trip, I was captivated by the hidden secrets and untold histories woven into each artefact.

Introducing ‘Scented Mementos’ - an enchanting limited edition collection by @jomalonelondon Each fragrance, a symphony of memories, encapsulates the essence of cherished moments. Immerse yourself in the zesty allure of Emerald Thyme, or indulge in the spicy nostalgia of Ginger Beer, where notes of ginger, roasted oak, and cinnamon intertwine to evoke memories of British antiques markets.
where every scent is a love letter to the past, a fragrant homage to the beauty of antiquity. #ScentsOfBritain #JoMaloneLondon Paid partnership
