After a long hot Summer, the weather has finally cooled and it’s time for a new season. I’m all about the capsule wardrobe, those staples which are the building blocks of my daily outfits. As I work full-time in digital marketing and I socialize after work regularly it’s important that my wardrobe consists of pieces that are versatile.
This month I’ve invested in some key workwear pieces that I can style with my basics. They’re statement yet, subtle enough to wear to the office. Need to find new ways to dress for the office this season? Take a look at my AW18 workwear edit for some Autumn inspiration…
On the whole, my skin has behaved over the last 5 or so years. I was fortunate that I didn’t suffer from hormonal acne like some of my friends, just getting the occasional whopper (and I mean whopper!) every now and again. Whilst spots have not really been an issue, blocked pores have, sounds kind of icky, right? My key issue is blackheads, on my chin, my nose and occasionally my cheeks. From makeup to SPF to pollution it all gets stuck in there, making my skin irritated and lackluster. That’s why I was incredibly excited to be gifted a skincare routine from Balance Me that’s specifically designed to tackle congested skin. So, I thought I’d share my initial thoughts after trying it over the last few days…
I’ve wanted to write this post for a long time. I was unsure about where to start and I knew it would be a tricky one to write so it just went on the back burner for a long time. Why now? Well, over the Summer quite a lot in my life has changed; I got engaged. I’m now in a place where I feel that I can talk about what has happened in the past, my journey over the years and how it’s got me to a positive place where I feel content and settled. If you’re reading this and have been affected by divorce in some form or another, it may offer a little insight into how I’ve handled it and that feeling the way you do or have done isn’t unusual. So, with that said here we go…
Earlier this month I uploaded a heartfelt Instagram post talking about how blogging has helped boost my body confidence. It seems that what I said resonated with a number of my followers so I thought I’d expand a little more on the topic over here. I’ve not written much personal content on iambecca.com so it’s a brave new world for me. Let’s begin…
Summer is probably my favourite time of year and one of the things that I love the most is creating lovely outfits to wear for the season. This year, London has been extraordinarily hot. We don’t usually have a ‘traditional’ Summer as such so dressing for the heatwave has been a bit of a challenge lately. I sound so British, don’t I?
Since launching iambecca.com last year, my style has evolved; I take more risks, wear bold colours, clashing prints and unusual textures. That’s not to say that I don’t still adore minimal outfit styling, I do, but each day is different. This new found confidence has lead me to discover new ways of pulling items together as well as new brands; Sister Jane being one of them. The Notting Hill-based brand creates vintage-inspired designs with a sprinkle of eccentricity and a nod to the retro style. Its signature aesthetic is colourful, unique and fresh – right up my street!
So, if you’re after something a bit different in your wardrobe this Summer, have a look at these…
