All In The Details Just sleeving my life


Lately, I found a new obsession with sleeves. Such an overlooked part of a garment – but not this season. This season it’s all about sleeves and the details they come with. The larger and more dramatic, the better.

My three new favourites:

  1. ‘French cuffs’ – Larger and more structured cuffs on a shirt, like the ones on my beautiful shirt below from H&M’s Studio Collection, are classics.
  2. ‘Fancy cuffs’ – Like these faux fur trimmed three quarter length sleeves below on my knit from Zara.
  3. ‘Bell Sleeves’ – Billowing bell shaped sleeves that make you wanna constantly do a little dance (or take Boomerangs).



I’m wearing:

Shirt – H&M Studio Collection

Knit with fur trimmed sleeves – Zara

Coat – Zara

Skinny wax coated jeans – Cotton On

Earrings and mini chain bag – Zara

All Caped Up


The lazy girl’s guide to covering up in winter and still looking sophisticated? With it’s throw-it-on-and-go and dramatic silhouette I’m all for the cape this winter.

It’s cosy, easy to wear and kinda makes you feel like a superhero. At the moment, I’ve recently seen them at Zara, Witchery & Country Road, Forever New, in YDE and on

Here’s how I styled my cape – all black everything, classic aviators and plum lips.
