Literally, the best thing ever. Kudos to i-D magazine, you made me grin with happiness.

Neo Grunge/Elle Italia November 2010/Photographer: Michael Sanders

Always an Autumn/Winter favourite for me, tartan is my favourite pattern to layer with. It has a classic grungy vibe, but also rules in terms of practicality. Take a checkered flannel shirt - buttoned up, left open, worn on the waist, or under a jumper - practical and cosy. Not exactly high-FASHION or the next-best-thing, but a hardworking piece in any winter wardrobe. Or maybe I'm getting lazy when it comes to winter dressing? Either way, dressing down and kicking back with a slightly teenage grunge vibe appeals to me greatly. Re-living the 90s obvs.

what i wish i was wearing #4

I won't go on about with my infatuation with trainers. But, I definitely applaud how this woman effortlessly mixes a structured coat with a relaxed bag & a pair of trainers. Sophistication with ease. This is what I aim to look like.

a.p.c fall 2012

I love the sixties. It's definitely my favorite era for fashion. A.P.C really nails the sixties silhouette, mixing classic prints and designs to make the collection modern and utterly timeless. The A-line skirts and pea coats look cute, but not in a sickly sweet way. Also - styling points for double tartan, matchy twin-set vibe at it's best.

inspiration #3: ankle socks

To me, styling is all about the little details. It’s the little quirks and attention to detail which I admire most about great outfits. Ankle socks are one of my little pleasures I like to indulge in during winter. It’s a necessity which can easily become an accessory. I’m especially enjoying the combination of socks and trousers, masculine styling with a bit of fun. Whether choosing to go bold with a pair of neon socks, or a more muted autumnal colour, I think we should pay more attention to the humble sock. Show them off - roll up your jeans or trousers, wear them on top of tights, the possibilities are endless. So, when you’re choosing your socks tomorrow morning, go crazy, dig out your best socks [ribbed, striped, glittery…] and wear them with pride. I promise you, it will make you smile.

I love Cara's ability to make what can only be described as a 'white tent' [see picture six], look cool. This editorial only adds to my current obsession with wanting all things padded + quilted. Insulation at it's best.
Happy Friday peeps.
