To Love Or to Hate: The Cropped Flare

It's a rare occasion for me to talk about trends; if I'm bluntly honest, I can't stand them and totally agree with the infamous Karl Lagerfeld quote of "trendy is the last stage before tacky". However, I for one am loving the sudden ubiquitous cropped flare. With a seventies, free-spirit, summer-livin' vibe, this denim garment was spotted on everyone from Alexa Chung to all of our favourite bloggers at Fashion Week. This new classic is suitable for all seasons too - pair with a cropped sweater and neck scarf for a seventies boho look in summer, or team with an oversized blazer and crisp white shirt for cosy, autumnal chic.

In need of some more convincing? Take a look at the snaps above and below!

What do you make of this trend? Yay or nay?

I can't quite believe that today marks my blog's fifth birthday! Five years of tapping away at the keyboard and delving into the world of fashion have flew by. 

It's crazy how much this blog has changed. Not only by design (anyone remember those pink stripes?) or by fashion sense (okay okay, Ugg boots were in at one point), but by writing style, content and photography. This blog has grown with me. And as I continue to grow as a person, so shall my blog follow. 

Que cheesy applause. And click below for more!

Autumn Leaves

My new uniform: a cosy, knitted jumper, printed scarf and chunky shoes. This little trio of autumnal goodness is something I just can't get out of lately. It's perfect for exploring on those fresh, crisp mornings, or doing some retail therapy around town, or even kicking through the leaves while running errands. It's a classic, cosy pairing that further reinforces my love for autumn. And pumpkin spice lattés, obvs...

I'm wearing: jumper, jeans and shoes - all Topshop, bag - Cath Kidston, watch - Michael Kors

What's your autumn uniform? Be sure to tweet or tag me any instagram pics of your autumnal outfits!

Inspiration: Autumn Style

Autumn is finally in full swing. Although it is my favourite season, it can sometimes be a little tricky to dress for. Endless rain, mist and fog, gushing wind - all of these elements can make for quite the frizzy hair and soggy coat combo. But there's no need to worry any longer, I've got you sorted with all things autumnal inspiration. Leopard prints coats, oversized knits and chunky brogues are your new best friends, hello autumn...

What's On My Face #25:

I feel like autumn is finally in full bloom; every leaf has turned into a rich, jewel tone, pumpkin spice lattés are ubiquitous and thick, wooly scarves line the necks of semi-freezing people. And of course, I'm seen in every autumnal shade possible; today I'm sporting forest green and bright pink/ plum. To compliment these colours I kept my makeup fresh and natural, with the pop of colour for the lips. Without further ado, let's get to the products...


Happy 25th anniversary What's On My Face! Tweet me or tag me on instagram if  you ever recreate any of the looks! Thanks for reading!
