I feel like my style has changed in parallel with a change in my attitude towards how I look and dress. Lately I've been leaning more towards simple pieces with extras, like textures or patterns that put a twist on classics. I crave the simplicity of a classic outfit. I love my black high necks, mom jeans, chunky knit jumpers and tailored trousers, but sometimes I feel a weird kind of guilt for not dressing how I feel, for not pushing my boundaries and being bolder in my choices when I feel confident and good.

At uni there can sometimes feel like there's a lot of pressure to be a character, to be cool and express yourself loud and clear. So I've fallen head over heels for pieces that allow me to hold tight to my beloved simplicity while also feeling a little funky. The epiphany came when I walked into H&M to find a star print knit jumper and a star print A-line leather skirt in the sale, hallelujah. Incorporating two of my favourite and most trusted pieces made patterns less scary and got me feeling cool and comfy. Yaaaas.

As ever, I'm pairing a black high neck jumper with an all black ensemble as a nod to my everlasting style icon Aubrey Hepburn (more specifically Hepburn in Sabrina, swoon). Then adding a denim jacket layered under my regular teddy bear coat to add a casual texture, colour, and added warmth cause the weather is awful. My Mum's old block heel boots are the cherry on top, they make me feel like Rachel from Friends and look amazing with jeans, dresses, everything.

As you can tell by the photos above, I'm absolutely overjoyed about the addition of star print in my life, and also the tea that was coming my way. Three cheers for taking a classic pairing and making it a little extra, hip hip hooray!
