I want to wear more stuff that feels special but doesn’t bankrupt me, so I’m starting with the little things

If I went through all of my clothes, shoes and accessories and wrote down where everything was from – I’m not saying I’m going to, but humour me – I reckon the result would be an embarrassingly short list. I’m a creature of habit and convenience when it comes to shopping and (excuse me while… Continue reading I want to wear more stuff that feels special but doesn’t bankrupt me, so I’m starting with the little things

On recognising what we really need – not just what we think we do

I don’t think there’s an hour that goes by that I don’t utter a sentence starting ‘I need to…’. The end of said sentence takes different forms, of course, but it’s usually along the lines of ‘get that done today’ or ‘reply to messages’ or ‘go to the gym’ or ‘be productive’. Last weekend it… Continue reading On recognising what we really need – not just what we think we do

Summer might actually be on the horizon and it’s making me excited

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Nicce I can smell summer approaching. Perhaps it’s something to do with our hottest early May bank holiday on record or perhaps it’s something to do with what’s flowering in parks and gardens, but over the past few days I’ve been gleefully breathing in the air in… Continue reading Summer might actually be on the horizon and it’s making me excited

An ode to slow-burning clothes love and ‘useful’ buys

Allow me, if you will, to tell you the story of this dress. I passed it in New Look a few weeks ago while browsing for something that would be totally striking and location appropriate for my trip to Holland (in the end I got flustered, gave up and subsequently spent the trip looking like… Continue reading An ode to slow-burning clothes love and ‘useful’ buys

It’s time to say goodbye to self doubt (because it’s making me completely fucking useless)

It took me a grand total of 57 minutes to reply to an email the other day. Fifty seven. Nearly an hour. The word count of said email? Also 57, if you exclude the greeting, pleasantries and sign off, which I will because I can and it works better for what I’m about to say.… Continue reading It’s time to say goodbye to self doubt (because it’s making me completely fucking useless)

A reintroduction: 7 things you might not know about me

I realised recently that when I first started being so bold as to write about myself on the internet, I never properly introduced myself. I figured at the time that a post that said ‘hello I am Sophie and I live here and do this’ was probably a post that no one would want to… Continue reading A reintroduction: 7 things you might not know about me

Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

The way that the topic for this blog post came into my head is kind of embarrassing, but let's roll with it. Today I spent probably two of my fully dressed hours pulling my culottes out of my arse (how’s that for TMI?), where they seemed determined to reside for the majority of the day.… Continue reading Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

I’m trying to appreciate little things more so here’s a handful of stuff I’m going to stop and enjoy this spring

Happy April one and all. I don’t know how the fourth month of 2018 managed to arrive already, but here we are, 3 months and a horrible number of centimetres of rain down. It’s been a pretty good year so far, but when I think back, I’m surprised to find that I don’t actually remember… Continue reading I’m trying to appreciate little things more so here’s a handful of stuff I’m going to stop and enjoy this spring

Dressing for (sort of) spring when winter doesn’t seem to be going away

Like all British people in perhaps the entire history of the world, I’m prone to getting wildly overexcited the moment the faintest glimpses of sunlight break through our perpetually cloudy sky. This has led me to wearing all manner of warm-weather outfits before it's been comfortable to do so in the past, and after one… Continue reading Dressing for (sort of) spring when winter doesn’t seem to be going away
