Style Inspiration: Michelle Dockery

Hello darlings,

Being a lady on screen and off means that I’ve always admired Michelle Dockery aka Lady Mary in the much loved Downton Abbey. She is always one of my favourite looks come award season as her use of classic lines, colour and print are much to be admired. For me she is the epitome of elegant English style…

Shoe of the Week

This weekend I was watching one of my favourite films, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which of course led me to admire Holly Golightly’s (aka Audrey Hepburn) style. I love her staple black kitten heels so I went looking for a pair of my own. I came across these little lovelies from ASOS which I think are a modern twist on this ever classic look…

Shoe of the Week

Hello my lovelies!

I have to apologise for the fact that I didn’t manage to post my Shoe of the Week yesterday as usual. So, as some sort of “fashion compensation”, I thought that I would include an amazing video of the making of Chanel Couture- am I forgiven?

My shoes of the week are these New Look heels because they are a really classic shape but are an incredibly beautiful colour and at a relatively cheap price what’s not to love?

Country Classic

I think that the most important part of anybody’s winter wardrobe is a pair of knee-high boots; luckily I’ve found the most gorgeous pair from Duo. I thought I’d style them with one of this season’s biggest trends heritage:

Blazer (H&M) £34.99 Shirt (H&M) £19.99 Blouse (H&M) £19.99 Boots (DUO) £150.00 Trousers (Uniqlo) £14.90 Disc Bracelet (French Connection via ASOS) £20.00 Chain Bracelet (Bing Bang via ASOS) £70.00 Rope Bracelet (Orly Genger By Jaclyn Mayer via ASOS) £113.00

I think that all of the different layers add different dimensions to the outfit. The blue shirt with elbow patches (very old school!) is a classic yet contrasts wonderfully with the lace blouse which makes the outfit a little bit more feminine. Equally the checked trousers add a classic but playful twist. But I think my favourite part of the outfit (apart from the boots of course which I think finish off the outfit) is the tweed jacket because it’s so simply gorgeous and can be worn so many times, in so many different ways- in fact all of the pieces of this outfit can. I finished this outfit off with some chunky jewellery that I hoped would add a feminine touch yet fit in with the practicality of the outfit. It is the perfect winter weekend look!
