Despite being a person of extremes, there is just something about this time of year that I'm drawn to. I tend to love passionately and dislike without thought. I don't have an in-between. So you can imagine how I'd expect to feel about in-between weather.

It's never been all that much of a secret that I love prints. I really do. I've never been one for basics. They're great for running around here and there or days when you're feeling a little flat, but for me, it's always been about the prints.

There's just something about a good blazer. I've always been a fan of jackets and blazers never fail to fall to the top of the list. They're so easy to wear and say a lot more than the effort they require.

Sometimes, a simple staple can take on a completely new form and really transform a girl. I've been a lover of striped tees forever. I have far too many, but do seem to wear them more than most others I own. So styling something that feels the same, yet is so different, feels like a breath of fresh air.

Well, it's been a while, hasn't it? It feels like forever ago since I've done a bit of a lifestyle catchup and considered my lack of posts (if you hadn't noticed) is down to a little shift in lifestyle, it's probably about time I shared it all with you.
