October is here, and lord knows it doesn’t even feel like it in the slightest! It feels as though summer still ought to continue, which is strange for me to even think like that. I love the colder seasons and autumn / winter is my favourite transitional period, by far. With that said , I have recently found myself clearing out, or probably more so discovering a lot of pieces in my wardrobe that I haven’t worn, ever, despite the fact that they have been sitting there for a good few years. It was only fitting to get this particular dress out especially now that we are in Autumn. It’s another shock even to myself that I opted for such a colour palette as usually I very much stick to far more desaturated tones, and tend to layer ALOT. I guess change is always good, or atleast that’s what they say.
The aim of this post was to show more than anything that you are able to mix high street with high end so easily. Accessorising doesn’t have to over power your outfit, which is what most people mistakingly do. Don’t let the designer brands scream from your outfit. The key is to make them blend well, and look effortless. That and theres nothing more tacky than a designer logo standing out saying “Hi everyone, i’m here!!”.

Over the past 6 months I think it’s more than fair to say that I have been out of touch with my blog, with no active posts whatsoever. However, I’m back and have many posts finally lined up and ready to go. There will be a slight change on the blog, which i’m sure you will all be quick enough to discover once it has all been posted!
Firstly, let me explain the reason for being so inactive. I’ve been back and fourth to paris and various other cities, I have started a new job, and generally speaking i’m making the most of every opportunity, which i’m been blessed enough to see, each day! All of what I speak of briefly here will be followed up with a post shortly at some point during this week. For now, I shall leave with you some 35mm images that I took whilst in France, the place i’m torn between; its become somewhat of a routine, a second home.
The images were taken in a small town in the South of France, where my eyes were opened to a whole different way of living in comparison to Paris, to London and what i’m used to. Everyone in Toulouse is so relaxed, so calm, and wake up each morning looking forward to going to work and catching up with everybody over lunch, and a good glass of wine. Their way of living and general life-ethic was pretty inspiring. They live so care free, and quite literally take each day as it comes with there goals still in sight. I guess it’s very true, as the saying goes, you are as good as the company you keep!
