I think it must go without saying that being an iconic minimalist designer, Ann Sofie Back is one of my firm favourites; when I saw this tshirt hailing that Back is BACK FOR GOOD I felt the message should be spread far and wide. I loved her recent SS14 collection, with Calvin Klein 90s reminiscent boxers, with the name peering out from above the jeans. Something I’m ready to embrace when the weather starts warming up again in a few months! Right now it’s about layering up, with the best black coat and an unsuspecting rust sweater that I found in COS.

Or more, ostrich printed cows leather. Wearing again, but in more detail, a favourite new wardobe addition from my own AW13; the ostrich biker jacket. Feeling more and more right that this image that’s been making the internet rounds is the gospel truth on the matter. Wearing with a pretty unusual jumper from fast becoming favourite Cedric Charlier. I was mistaken to be wearing a 90s-esque choker throughout the day when wearing under jackets and coats, which is no bad thing. Channeling my adolescent gothhood as it were. On the other end of the scale accompanying with high end accessories, Givenchy-bag-turned-clutch and black suede and gold beauty from Larsson & Jennings. Life is also better with a watch it would seem. Off to draw a new cartoon..

From white to black and back and vice versa; that’s the way it goes on this blog, except the introduction of a more colourful piece, unusual for me. My wardrobe is looking a little brighter with this ray of winter cosyness sandwiched in the middle. As for the shoes, I know I’ve jumped on the Nike bandwagon a little late (it’s never too late!), but ever since ordering these beauties they have not left my feet. Fashion flats all the way! Or rather, shoes that allow me to run around all day and do my job all the way!

The night before last I found myself at the opening of the new Guild hair salon in London’s Chelsea; we’re all aware that the French influence is taking over here in London, and Guild’s unique selling point being that their hairdressers have been brought in from Paris, all speak french and even offer you Champagne whilst you’re in the chair! This may be the reason for the drastic hair change; feeling a little more confident than usual I thought it was time to try something a little new. Still obsessing with this Daria hair it was time to loose a lot of inches, now leaving me with more hair on my Neil Barrett sweater than on my head. Thank you Guild and RedKen for the drastic change and wonderful evening!
On our first evening out in Malta, dressed in this new heavy silk top from COS that I knew was totally impractical when buying, but it seemed like the perfect minimal evening piece. Equally so with this Bracher Emden laser clutch, bright white and just as pristine, I think it was made for this outfit, or any all white ensemble.

Walking around Marsaxloxx, in the south eastern part of Malta, around sunset after eating the biggest Maltese Sunday lunch. Wearing an easy holiday dress I picked up from Zara before travelling, and the Vagabond sandals I couldn’t live without all summer.

Our second day in Malta spent roaming around the ancient back streets of Valletta, before our afternoon of extreme relaxation at the spa. It’s winter here and it’s still 25 degrees.. pretty happy to be spending a week here before AW14 gets into full swing. Follow me on instagram for more daily updates from the island!

More delving’s into pinstripe; sorry I’m not sorry, etc.. although waring the same coat twice is hardly a crime, but so much love, for so much pinstripe could be. I am not so secretly heavily crushing on the Stella plaid which I may well move onto next. You know when you have dreams about THAT coat that it’s time to do something about it. Not that a white cashmere heavily price tagged coat is making any sense right now, perhaps the knitwear could. Perhaps I love it more as it seems like the only print that has escaped being copied on the high street to deaths door and back. Watch this space I suppose.

I think I need to get in touch with the North Devon tourist board, as I could spend all day exploring the vast coastline it has to offer, and no matter how long I spend down here, I never have enough time to see it all. So much beauty that I didn’t really think about growing up here, as I really didn’t know any different. I spent a lot of time on this beach; roaming across the miles and miles of sand dunes; swimming in the sea that’s always too cold – even in the height of summer! So I’m glad I can share it with you, during the golden hour; a little slice of home that inspires me and my work constantly.
After falling for Claudia Ligari’s mesh bomber jacket this summer I’m pleased to add a new piece to the collection; a classic tee that’s half silk, half sports mesh. Perfect with my Kirstie Maclaren Neave cuff that I don’t think I wear enough, going back to those minimal gold pieces that my magpie eyes are drawn to. Wearing a heavy wool coat that was pinched last minute from the boy, sometimes oversized menswear is too good not to.
Exploring the local beaches in Devon and generally taking in some fresh sea air on Croyde Beach yesterday. I love the texture of these slate rocks I’m perched on, so much beauty to take in with the surroundings down here. Flats definitely come in handy when climbing sand dunes and jumping over rock pools! I’m still living in this Acne polo sweater, which is just the perfect oversized outerwear right now.
