What is it about your outfit that makes you feel most comfortable?

I’ve been on the hunt for a parka jacket for as long as I can remember, so just owning one makes me incredibly happy! I’m fussy, coats needs to be comfortable and fitted – these two things rarely mix. This one is different – it’s lining is so, so soft and warm, but it also has little tassels on the side to help it fit my shape. So, although I feel like I’m wearing a furry duvet, I don’t look like it! Everything else I’m wearing are my “happy clothes.” I’m most comfortable in stripes and denim.

If you had to list 3 must have items in your wardrobe what would they be?

They would be embarrassingly simple. Every girl needs a good, solid little black dress. I have a narrow waist but most definitely have a bottom and thighs so dresses don’t always work for me. Investing in a good LBD was a fantastic decision for me. Other key items include quality cashmere jumpers (my favourite is new-in from Wyse London) and well fitted black trousers.

Do you have any major style faux pas?

Generally I never like to feel like I have to conform to a style. I love the freedom fashion gives you. My style doesn’t exactly push boundaries but there is nothing I hate more than walking through West London and seeing all the women looking like carbon copies of each other. At least try to be a little bit original. Same goes for dressing for work – I’m so glad to be out of that corporate world. Whenever I meet up with friends in the city, or go to an event, I also feel for women as their options feel so limited – everyone looks the same.

Would you say you are a shoes or bag girl?

Hmmm… Although I’d say I wasn’t really either my collection (which is taking over my flat) would disagree. I guess I’d be more of a shoe person, my Dad always told me it was most important to have clean shoes and nails so its stuck with me. I wear flats a lot, in fact a resolution for 2016 was to get me wearing more heels as they’re so much more flattering. However what with a very active pup and rushing around town most days, I think its going to be tough to get me out of my trainers.

Can you remember your first item of clothing that made you feel like a grown up? What was it?

I can vividly remember buying a dress for my prom, aged sixteen. It was such a big deal at the time; every lunch time was spent going through the pages of Sugar and Cosmopolitan magazines with friends hunting down the perfect one. I can remember trying to match the colour of my dress with the colour of my boyfriend at the time’s tie, which is the opposite of what I’d do now. I ended up with this blue puff ball dress. I thought I looked fantastic, but when I look back I resemble a Christmas bauble.
