Weekend Style Guide // Simple Styling Tricks


As you read this, Al and I will have experienced our first ever Thanksgiving!  In fact, I wrote this on Monday (how organised am I?!) as we flew to Phoenix Tuesday afternoon to spend thanksgiving with two amazing friends we made while we were in India.  We travelled to Hampi, Goa and Nepal with them and haven’t seen them for 6 months so I’m super excited to catch up with them.  Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see what we get up to!

Anyway, I need to finish packing (I have a suitcase from storage, full of summer things staring at me) so I’m going to keep this weekend’s style guide short and share a few of the simple styling tricks I use to add a little style to even the simplest of outfits.

Throw a tailored jacket over a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit to transform take it from effortless to effortless chic.

Don’t just use belts to keep your trousers up…in fact if you need to wear a belt with your jeans then they’re too big.  Accessorise with belts, the way you would a necklace.  Think of it as adding some personality to an outfit, or use it to highlight a small waste.
