[Winter is Coming] Winter Style

 Winter isn't coming….it's here! Time to rug, wrap and layer yourself up.
It's all about texture and contrasting textures. Leather and lace, cable knits and denim, cashmere and silk. Beanies and fedoras are also the perfect stylish solution to keep your hair from looking like a frizz ball in the rain. Bigger is better- oversized sweaters, scarves, coats and furs are all the better to wrap yourself up in.

[Sometimes Images] Inspire

 I am a visual person. I am constantly surrounding myself with imagery. 

Sometimes its an image that inspires me creatively- the colour of feather, the textures in a room, a beautiful portrait or an intriguing fashion shoot. Sometimes I'm drawn to an image just from the feeling it gives me, sometimes I just like to look at images for no other reason that they make me smile or day dream. Sometimes an image will be of something I'm coveting or a street-style-snap that reflects my sense of style or one that I wish I had! 

And sometimes its just nice to see all those images that circulate around me in some kind of order. So I have collated just a couple of these images that are doing the rounds into six somewhat-organised collages.

[The Finer Details] Delicate Jewellery

For quite some time now I have taken a more delicate touch to my accessories. I love the subtlety of such delicate pieces, it's more intriguing.  I have kept things fine and simple with the help of a few amazing jewellery designers and random little market finds. No matter how you do it, whether it's bare and minimal, stacked and layered or beachy and bohemian you just can't go wrong. Hope this post gives you a little inspiration! 

I have fallen in love with Catbird! Their pieces have a beautiful hand quality finish to them and a rawness that keeps them casual enough for everyday wear. Investing a little extra in your everyday jewellery saves you in the future and allows you to get on with the chores and activities without worry about the gold plating wearing off or stones falling out. 

There are so many ways to wear these pieces, have a play and experiment with all the combinations you can imagine. Here are some of my favourite designers creating delicate dainty treasures:

Here are a couple that you can have a little more fun with (without feeling too guilty or hurting the bank account):
