What: Personalised Timberland boots (c/o), Acne skinny jeans, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, Whistles camo print sweater & shearling jacket (both c/o)

Where: Lectures

Stepping out of my Peter Pan collar comfort zone again this week with a tougher take on everyday chic (rhyme unintentional… I promise). Bet you never thought you see me in Timberland boots, eh?! I acquired these bespoke bad boys in Berlin last Summer and have been wondering how the hell to style them ever since. After a lot of deliberation over whether to go for a boy/girl mash up by rocking them with a dress I opted for an easier and, dare I say it, more badass route with simple staples. I’ve had these acne skinnies FOREVER, four years to be precise. They were definitely a wise investment as despite having accompanied me across the globe, endured coffee stains and been slept in on more occasions than I care to admit they don’t seem in danger of disintegrating yet. The camo sweater is another seriously hard working piece which has seen me though London Fashion Week SS14 plus countless parties, dinners, lectures and assorted other engagement. I suspect this incredible aviator jacket (also Whistles) will soon be joining the ranks of my “most worn” wardrobe staples although it may require me adding a few more frill free garms to my arsenal. Shopportunity? I can live with that.

    I also never thought I could wear Timberland boots. Now they are my favourite pair and I wear them with jeans, dresses…
