BRANDS I LOVE: YMC

Posted on: 23 Apr 2014



You Must Create first arrived on my radar through menswear. We sold a capsule collection at work consisting of waffle knit jumpers, streamlined polos and subtly printed shirts from the cult contemporary brand. Instantly appealing to my eye, I wondered 'do they do womenswear?'

It's a tad out of my price range but a girl can admire from afar. If I could, I would strip back my entire wardrobe to a handful of YMC pieces to mix and match, dressing up and down. Fit-and-flare printed dresses and dip-dyed button-up designs would never date, no doubt proving themselves as staple pieces for every season. Preppy lace-up trainers, geek chic sandals and retro tortoiseshell wayfarers would effortlessly complement printed shirts, fine striped jumpers and tailored denim shorts. For now, a handful of stand-out pieces remain firmly on my wishlist.






INSTAGRAM LOVE: APRIL

This month's Instagram round-up is still very much focused on the West Coast of America (with one or two NYC/Canadian exceptions). I'm daydreaming of greenhouses full of cacti, never-ending sunshine, barren deserts, rugged cliffs, green mountains and fields of flowers. Wanderlust overload.

ROAD TRIPPIN'

Posted on: 12 Apr 2014


Driving through the countryside, on the open road; windows down and hair blowing in your face. This summer is pretty centred on train journeys but I'm beginning to wish that I had factored in a road trip somewhere along the line. I love that feeling of knowing that you can go anywhere you want; knowing that you can pull over at the side of the road if you see something that takes your fancy. Everything you need is piled in the car with you, you could just pitch up your tent and sleep under the stars.
