Trend; Saddle Up


When I heard the cowboy trend was IN did anyone else shout Yee Haa? ok, just me then. I have always been obsessed with being a cowgirl I have a vivid memory of having a pale blue dress with white fringing on the front when I was 8 or 9. I own a pair of vintage cowboy boots I bought a while ago, this might be the right time to dust off the cobwebs.

I have collated a few things I have seen online, look at the boots at the top from Free People, they are gorgeous. Keep in mind not to wear all items cowboy/girl together, otherwise you will look like you are in fancy dress. Keep it to one item and pair with classic pieces to compliment your outfit.

Winter Wardrobe Phobia 

For me the most exciting time of year is spring. My winter wardrobe is dismal, I might be subconsciously sabotaging it as I hate jumpers, cardies, coats, scarves, tights, everything associated to keeping myself warm. The bulkiness, the claustrophobia of piling on layers and layers and still being bloody cold annoys me. Warm weather and I come alive, I feel my styling goes up a notch which is a bonus.

With Spring approaching, I sometimes get into a panic, I check the weather it’s 14 degrees does it mean a jacket will do, should I still wear my wooly jumper, is it time to ditch the thermal heat tech from Uniqglo ? The answer is I don’t know, hence the panic. 

One look I particularly like is the skirt/dress jumper combo. Fits perfectly for spinter ( winter /spring ) you can pop on some tights and a jacket which are easily removal if it gets too warm. Alexa Chung has this down perfectly.  

I won’t fret, spring will actually be here soon properly and I can drop the bulk and love my wardrobe again.

The End.
