Hanging out in some back alleys behind the Breakfast Club in Soho wearing a combination of favourite items. I got this jumper back in the summer and I only wore it for the first time last week. Heather green and a waffled knit – it is the ultimate in cozy. It helps that I bought it in an extra large… ohhh, I love it. England has finally thawed out enough that it’s possible to wear somewhat normal clothes, as opposed to three jumpers and multiple socks worn under massive puffy jackets.
Someone recently commented that they have never seen me in loose fitting trousers. I tend to stick to a generic oversized top and tight bottom combo. I think it developed when I was about seven… only then it was pink leggings and big white tied dyed t-shirts (with an obligatory knot in the side, yeaaah baby, brings back the 90s). Anyway, this uniform is partly due to my mode of transport: the bicycle. Wide legs really don’t bode well when you ride a bike… unless you want to wind up with your face in the pavement. I’m not sure how I’m going to swing this whole 70s revival. I may have to fashion some sort of trouser decompressor for when I’m in transit. Enough rambling. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.
There is a certain unexpected beauty in the natural deconstruction of a favourite jumper. Just when you thought it was safe to haul your old knits over to Oxfam… jumper worn by Jill from Street Style London.
Heritage is one thing the British certainly do well. They exemplify a respect for the past and incorporate that mentality into their dress. Take Will Lusk for example. He dug his Burberry trench out from the depths of his grandfather’s closet and has made it his own. Mixed with a perfectly posh silk scarf, fit for a smoking room no doubt, and denim turned up at the ankle, he mixes youthful pieces with those that make a strong nod to days gone by. Loafers, cable knit, and Remembrance Day poppies – on paper it sounds like Will’s outfit should teeter on the edge of being old fashioned but it is clearly anything but that. Will’s style embodies everything I adore about British fashion.

Feeling jealous of my teapot isn’t a very regular occurrence. Ever since it has been wearing this snazzy little Toast cozy though things have started to change. Multi-coloured baubles, lime green cable knit, and a snug fit? I want one. Luckily, I managed to ease my ill feelings by inviting the queen round for tea…
