her walk is like a shot of whiskey.
neat and strong
and full of purpose.
and so many
Today, I am whiskey. The sort that knocks you off your feet and makes you reach for a glass of ice cool water. No messing about, taking no prisoners and best food forward. Fierce, intrepid and ready. I made a choice for change a few weeks back and I am now in the full throttle of that. I have really missed regularly blogging over the summer (whilst moving house, unpacking and having birthdays etc) and although I have still been performing regularly, I have not written as many thoughts down as I probably should have done. But. I. Am. Back.
And totally feeling fabulous in this autumnal get-up with this Hazel suede skirt c/o Bright & Beautiful Co and Collectif clothing. Last season they had a pinafore in this soft suede fabric which I wear quite a bit so naturally needed the skirt too (you can still get the pinafore this season too – bonus!)
With a sassy 10 inch front split and tailored but stretchy fit, it is one of those “can’t miss it” staple items that your wardrobe is begging for.
My favourite season of the year, autumn, is just around the corner. With it comes reflection on this year so far, a year of letting go and vast change. If this year has taught me anything, it is that sometimes it is better to move on than to try and make something work. Because you don’t drown by falling in the water, you drown by staying there.
When Autumn leaves start to fall…
‘Cherry oh, cherry oh, baby
Cherry oh, cherry oh, baby
Don’t you know I’m in love with you
If you don’t believe it’s true
What else is there for me to do?
Look how long I’ve been waiting
For you to come right in
And now that we are together
Please make all my joys come over’
Always one to start a new post with a tune or two, today’s bit of chatter comes alongside the pitter patter of the stunning cherry print Cerise dress from Joanie Clothing. There is something insatiably fruity (sorrynotsorry) about a stand out vibrant dress with cherries on it.
With an upheaval and a house move around the corner, right now I am living out of a suitcase. The idea of a “capsule wardrobe” is actually my life, albeit unwillingly. Packing up your life into boxes makes the hours slip away and the weekends disappear. What I need is some gingham.
All over the shops this summer there seems to be those gingham capri’s with the cute frill hem. I first laid my eyes on them when I watched Miley Cyrus perform with Ariana Grande at the One Love concert in Manchester. Probably a bit late to the party but I would rather sit in a corner until I am ready to join in than match the decorations. The search began. After a quick snoop on Google, I found that they were from TopShop and sold out everywhere. Missguided, Pretty Little Thing and Boohoo have some good replicas but not quite what I was looking for.
Hello Festival Season!
You know summer is here when the festival season is well under way right? As a festival virgin until a few years ago, I feel I have a lot to catch up on. Enter the glitter bombs, mud and dry shampoo….
Recently performing at a Party in The Park, I wore THE perfect jumpsuit that you NEED if you are going to a festival this summer. The Farrah Can Can Jumpsuit from Joanie Clothing is the only jumpsuit you need to pack this season. Wear it with a tee underneath if it get’s cold or without if you want to sun your guns. With adjustable spaghetti straps, ruffle feature to the neckline and a flattering wide leg, it ticks all the right boxes.
