Before I even asked myself the question "What is my style all about?" I had to overcome the main obstacle that was standing between me and the way I was dressing. Body confidence. And I think there's not many women out there who are entirely comfortable with the way they look. We're either too tall, too skinny, too round, too soft, arms too big, bum not big enough. Ask any woman and she will tell you all about it.
As another Fashion Month came to a close, I'm feeling a sense of relief. Not that I got too stressed about it in the first place. This was actually the first London Fashion Week I enjoyed. And it wasn't because I got invited to many shows. In fact, I didn't. In my case, you don't really get invited to shows.
When the colder months are upon us and everything suddenly turns grey, including our wardrobes, a pop of colour is like a breath of fresh air. From eye-catching statement shoes in bold red to jumpers and jackets in mustard, this season is all about standing out from the crowd.
With nearly three quarters of this year under way and Halloween, Christmas and NYE fast approaching, I decided it's time to sit down and make a plan for the remaining months of 2017.

These early days of autumn are some of the most unpredictable when it comes to the weather forecast. It's all too common to have a beautiful sunny day and then heavy rainfall the next. Sometimes the two even happen in the same day and if you're not lucky at all within the space of an hour. That's when planning your outfits becomes a daunting task. To be able to make the right sartorial choices when it comes to mastering the transitional wardrobe, it's important to have an arsenal of items in your closet that layer easily.
