Coffee Catch Up

I was chatting through the technicalities of blog post categories a few days ago with Chloé Digital – with a refresh on the cards, there’s a lot of back end clearing up to be done. Doesn’t sound very appealing does it? But it’s very necessary as I’m fast learning.

Starting to look back over old posts is proving to be a really useful process in terms of new content idea generation. If you’re stuck at a blogging impasse, I highly recommend delving deep into your own archives.

Recent delving lead me back to this series. So shall we?

Grab a coffee…

Elevate The Everyday Wardrobe | Dungarees

Following on from Wednesday’s post and my asking for your input re future blog content, I had a Carrie Bradshaw moment. As in…I got to thinking…

Man I loved that SATC line!

Sarah Jessica Parker related digressions aside, hands up who remembers the Style Snaps series? I used to really enjoy these quick hit wardrobe snapshots of the days I considered to be a Good Outfit Day.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a well thought out, styled outfit shoot on location too but in the interests of staying relatable (there’s that word again!), I thought it might be fun to resurrect Style Snaps with a new format.

What’s Next For The Online Stylist In 2017…

This blog always has been and always will be my passion project. Not a week goes by when I don’t count my lucky stars at the thought of sitting down to my desk and putting 100% effort into something I truly love.

To exist in the blog world and to continue to earn an income from it means that change is a constant. The pure genius of these small corners we create is that they’re always evolving.

And we can evolve with them in ways of our choosing.

I started blogging with no business agenda meaning that every single post/subject/category/tweet etc came from an emotion. A fleeting thought, an opinion or a big idea that I REALLY felt the need to share. I’ve always been a sharer…

Embracing The Everyday Jeans Uniform

As my style has slowly morphed from less fussy and more into paired back, calmer territory, jeans have become my goto for most of those dressed down, everyday outfits.

And for the slightly dressier ones too.

There’s no getting away from it. One of the things I hear most often is “HOW do I break out of my everyday jeans uniform habit? It always comes back to me reaching for jeans!”

This is often accompanied by anguished looks and much wringing of hands. You know what? I say stop trying.

Give in to the power of the jean and just change them up a little more often. They’re practical, comfortable, versatile and go with all manner of footwear. There aren’t many things in my wardrobe that I can say all those things about!

Heels, Champagne Fridays, Cake & Frills

If you asked me to list all the things that represent my favourite hashtag, #ElevateTheEveryday, Champagne Fridays would be very close to the Number One spot!

Closely followed by cake and heels. Notice though that heels come after cake in the running order these days.  For a long time I’ve been shying away from heels and opting for flats – unless a door to door, taxi to table journey is on the cards.

One thing I’ve noticed is that if you stop wearing heels for a considerable amount of time, you forget how to walk in them. Not good…
