What does fashion mean to you in one word?
Confidence - it’s all about making you feel good & ready to face the world!
If your style was a movie, which would it be and why?
I think this might be the year that I finally embrace the colour, playful style & eclecticness of Pippi Longstocking! We lived in Denmark as kids and I have just knitted the perfect multi-coloured chunky beanie as a marker of how I intend to proceed!
What's your favourite clothing item of all time?
A pair of second hand loose 501s that look just the way I want to them and are so comfy round the waist I can wear them with leggings through the winter - I wear them year-round most days of the week!
What’s your favourite food?
Would it be weird to say porridge? I have a huge bowl every morning with fruits & seeds and it just sets me up so brilliantly for the day. On a more exciting (?) note olives, which I have everyday with a glass of wine at six. I am an absolute creature of habit when it comes to food!
Where would we find you on a Friday night?
These days up the top of hill in a converted farm steading in the Scottish Highlands. We look down on Loch Ness and somedays I honestly feel like we are living in a painting it is just so beautiful. I’ll either be making spaghetti - post olives & wine 😉 - cosying up with the cats in front of the woodburner or threading up my lovely old Finnish floor loom for a new fleece rug, my new obsession!
What’s in you current YBD Wishlist?
This is where I am mood-boarding my Pippi Longstocking vision for this year with a lot more colour & fun than I would usually go for! The boxy mauve knitted vest from Sula, perfect for throwing over whatever you’re wearing, even another knit… The striped cardy from Herd whose British Bluefaced Leicester wool is ethically sourced from local north England farmers is just gorgeous. Both these would look super cute with the beautiful botanical silk scarf (inspired by wondrous female gardener Gertrude Jekyll) as a necktie or hairband and the handmade gold hemp cargo pants which Debra has styled so perfectly on Insta. Any outfit would lend itself to the M. Hulot cross-hatch textured satchel (wish I could run my fingers over this beautiful finish!) and a pair of chocolate mid-heel Scandi clogs - and taking things up a notch in the glam stakes, an ever-exquisite Tallulah & Hope piece that always delivers on the wow-factor and compliments - my most reliable go-to for any occasion (from drinks to weddings) needing something a little extra!
