My Style Diary - Off The Shoulder

There's something about the off-the-shoulder style that always looks so effortless. I love the slight boho vibe it gives an outfit (any time I can embrace the boho look I go for it - it's not a style that usually suits me too well) and it's a great way to show just a little skin without being overly revealing. 
I've had this French Connection top for ages and I'm hoping to get a lot of use out of it this season now that I've included it in my capsule wardrobe as one of the main colourful/patterned pieces. It's a nice transitional piece with the longer sleeve length, but still not too warm for early autumn. 

I usually wear this top with a belt to cinch the waist in a little more, but on this particular day I decided just to go without, and I quite like the relaxed look it gives paired with the ripped blue denim. :)

What do you think about off the shoulder tops? Yay or nay? 
Hope you're having a fab Sunday!


Top - French Connection
Jeans - Siwy denim
Sandals - Windsor Smith

My Summer Capsule Wardrobe - a very belated post!

Heya :)

So this post is very late seeing as we are now well into autumn, but I shared a video showing my Summer Capsule Wardrobe a few weeks ago and just realised that I never actually popped it up on the blog! So here it is now!

These are the 34 pieces I was wearing all summer (and a fair way into March too) and I think it really goes to show that capsule wardrobes don't always have to be neutral or monochrome! I've loved my colourful summer capsule, and am so happy that I was able to make all the colours and patterns work, while still sticking to a reasonably minimal number of items. In the words of Caroline from Un-fancy, this number felt "generous yet still minimal" and I didn't feel restricted or bored at all.
It's so nice to have a clutter-free wardrobe, filled with just the things I need and none of the excess, and I intend to continue this "capsule experiment" through autumn and beyond - now that I've started I don't think I can go back!

(PS check out Caroline's blog if you haven't already - it's the best!)

I hope this can give you some inspiration if you're in the northern hemisphere and heading into spring and summer!

Lots of Love
