I’ve always been fond of a bit of boho, although the term has rather naff connotations. I think the key to a chic bohemian vibe is not to over do it with the accessories; too much jingiling jewellery can undermine the look. If I’m wearing a boho dress, I like to wear one or two bold pieces of jewellery. I love this silk dress by Me & Maya. It skims over my baby bump nicely, but will work post-baby next summer, worn with bare legs and tan sandals. I’ve styled the dress with a faux fur coat from Whisltes (similar here) and boots from Kurt Geiger.
I’ve always had a soft spot for loud prints and they’re even better when mixed with contrasting colours and textures. The key is to insure the shades are in the same family – I like to wear this dress from ASOS with the Ruby and Ed gilet. The matching pale grey colour draws both pieces together. When the weather cools I’ll layer a leather jacket under the fluffy beauty.
Blogging about faux fur during summer may seem perverse, however you can never tell when the British weather will change its mind. Also, I tend to think about my look for next season anyway. There are more fruitful uses of my headspace, however I’ve been obsessed with fashion my whole life, and I don’t see that changing any time soon. This furry bad boy is from Ruby and Ed‘s AW15 collection – its pale colours work well over light outfits on chilly summer days. Come winter, I’ll layer it over a leather jacket and chunky knitwear. The blouse is from The Reformation, and the skirt is an old favourite from Whistles.
I’m all about faux fur at the moment. In recent years the technology has come along leaps and bounds. It used to be that fake fur looked cheap and was always charged with perilous static electricity. My fine hair would end up standing on end and anyone I touched would get an electric shock. However, these days the fake stuff is luxurious, cosy and chic. This tippet is from ASOS; I love the forest green colour which is perfect for fall. I’ve teamed it with an old jumper from Cos and an even older skirt from Whistles. The look has a vintage vibe that I’m always drawn to but the shot of fur on steroids gives the it a modern twist.
