But can you change it up?

Staple

[stey – puhl]

noun

1. a short piece of wire bent so as to bind together papers 

2. a white t shirt

Cotton, polyester or modal, a white tee is the bread & butter of my wardrobe. With the rise of fast fashion, trends are changing before you can say “is the bum bag making a come back?” ( It is )

However, you’ll find the classic white tee a constant in our wardrobes. The best part is trying to find pairings to re-invent the white tee but what’s even better is being able to mix Indian wear with wardrobe staples.

So baby get those lehengas & sneakers out.

It’s time to change it up.

But are you wearing track pants?

No, it’s called Athleisure.

Where fashion meets comfort.

But baby isn’t it too cold?

I am in a forever love affair with dresses & shorts. The crux of the matter is that the weather is changing & most sensible folks will swap out those cheeky bum shorts with jeans, over-sized hoodies & better decisions.

I, not being so much on the sensible side, discovered a simple formula to transition summer stapes to winter wear, without having to answer:

But Baby isn’t it too cold?

No bra, no problem?

If you look closely on my last two posts you must have noticed, I am not wearing a bra. No problem right?

Wrong.

I’ve been genetically blessed with small boobs & from a young age it has been ingrained to religiously wear a bra. A quick trip to buy milk requires my wallet, keys, will power not buy ice cream & support.

However, going sans bra has been liberating. I feel comfortable, confident, sexy & say a “hell to the yeah” to some cheeky side boob. Be it a ten minute drive to pick up pizza or a dinner I’m embracing bra-free fashion.

We are definitely more than being shamed or sexualised for our bodies.

Bows & Blue Hues

She’s lying in bed. She doesn’t believe in alarms but wakes up to the pressing need for tea. She looks over to the space next to her and sees last nights regrets – High Fidelity – waiting to be finished. Her straight hair twirls up into a bun and the kettle is set to boil. She think about her choices for the day in the shower and ponders if she needs to shave her legs. The tea is ready in last nights mug and her wardrobe full of dresses with tags on. She wears navy blue with black and steps out…

Thanks, I’ll take two

If history has taught us anything it is that the two piece trend is a wardrobe must have. Flashback to Fran Fine rocking a floral Jennifer Bawden outfit paired with her killer abs! I may not have the abs but I do love a cheeky two piece. Being on the shorter side, I did find it hard to find a skirt + crop combo that didn’t reach my ankles. This Ref piece was a steal, plus sustainable to the environment.
