FAIRIES, REBELS & SUITS

We can probably blame my general incapacity to make decisions and my, rather astonishing, capacity to question the unquestionable (this is merely a poncy way to describe my talent for wasting my own time and energy) for my style. Because at the end of the day, I quite often look like I haven’t decided which gender I want to side with.

In my defence, it’s safe to say that having small boobies and a boy’s name could do that to you.
Not that it really matters though, there’s something about suits which has always fascinated me. They’re the ultimate costume (costume actually means suit in French…See?!!), the Rolls Royce of them all. I love seeing the boy getting in a suit, I get to watch how this wild animal that I usually catch screaming at Sky Sports in his hot dogs printed pants, turns into this incredibly handsome and elegant gentleman with a deep voice and what has to be the sexiest British accent. Don’t get me started on Morning suit… To be fair, he always looks amazing – I’m lucky like that. But a suit has an undeniable power. Let’s just say that, if a fairy can turn a pumpkin into a horse drawn carriage, a suit would turn your average chav into boy band material (if that’s your type)

Long story short, I’m obsessed with them. And if you follow me on Instagram, you would know this already. I know some of you feel like suits are not sexy or feminine enough. But at the end of the day, who defines sexy? I know I’m in charge of the definition of my own sexiness, and as soon as you free yourself from what a random male would think, you start to play more with your style. Because when you think about it, we dress to appeal to people we don’t even know. And by doing so, you’re missing an entire conversation with yourself. Oi – who are you outside of this social pressure? How would you dress, if you didn’t have to Instagram your outfit and were not on that quest for likes and anonymous approval? I’m in team suits! And as much as I love wearing them with trainers, this time I wanted to show you how it’d look with heels – as I realise that my style could be far off your comfort zone sometimes and I don’t want to be one of these bloggers who just takes nice pictures with a cute pout. I want to talk to you, I want us to play with our styles and imagination together, I want you to feel inspired to try your own fashion burrito at home. So keep the heels on baby, and those sexy perked up calves – I’m on your team!

I really love this suit, its heavy texture and long blazer. I even really like the dropped crotch, although it can look funny on pictures. But you don’t have to go all City about it, you can have fun with a suit. So I picked this lovely tee which reads New Rebel in French – I like to think that I’m super badass (although I’m not, I’m scared of pretty much anything, including hamsters) and teamed the whole thing with these fluffy shoes to add extra texture and colour, and also because I like to think I’m mad (which I really am, clinically and all)

Now suit up!

Love,

    Well you can definitely pull off a suit. I wouldn’t have guessed everything is from Asos – I especially love the heels!
