My Style: Returning to the Wild Side (Via Stiletto Heels)

Ella Gregory Coco's Tea Party J Brand Jeans

Do you have a signature style or something you’re known for wearing on repeat? At university mine used to be the YSL ‘Arty’ rings (this was just before everyone and their grandmother started wearing them). And once that phase was over and done with I moved on to animal print.

If an item of clothing comes in a range of finishes, and one of them happens to be animal print, I will always buy the animal print option. Always. And at the height of my obsession I’d sometimes leave the house wearing three or four different patterns in one outfit: zebra, giraffe, leopard, cheetah… I was like a walking, talking, human safari!

Bizarrely I didn’t wear much animal print over Autumn/Winter, so it was a relief to step back into my Next giraffe heels over the weekend. It sounds silly, but they really do put a spring in my step.

Also, this was my first time wearing the J Brand Stocking jeans. They’re super soft and stretchy, so although they’re really really skinny they feel as comfortable as pyjamas. Naturally I’m obsessed, and they’re sure to become my latest style signature…

P.S How white are my feet?! You can tell they haven’t seen the light of day in a while…

Thanks Holly for helping with the photos!

      Thanks Lola.

  • I love having a signature piece — and for awhile, mine was also the YSL Arty ring. (Today might be a good day to break that out again.) I adore your giraffe-print heels!

  • Mira Shpak

    Lovely outfit!

  • Great pop of colour… so need some pom poms in my wardrobe and that is a great way of injecting them!

  • Anja Skrba

    Those are very very cool giraffe print shoes! I’m tweeting this!

    Love this look! Especially that snood – I thought it was going to be Matthew Williamson or something, so I’m pretty flipping chuffed to find it’s only £22!

      I know it’s amazing right?! I wore it to interview Henry Holland this week and he assumed I’d got it in India or something.

    Oh gorgeous! I do love a beautifully simple look and I love the texture of the knit with the giraffe print. Perfect
