You Just Can't Beat The Classics


As much as I love a crazy print, bright colour, and all manner of spiky, gilded edginess, there are times when you just want something simple and low-fuss. I find myself reaching for classic preppy-inspired pieces quite often in summer. The clean lines and relative sturdiness of the garments work well when you are out of doors and on the move, and always look somewhat finished. If I am heading off on a trip to some very casual summer destination, I often pack a suitcase full of stuff like this. You're never over, nor underdressed, and the shapes seem to work well on an athletic body.

No, it's not the most exciting thing in my closet, but when the sun comes out up here in the Highlands, we are too busy being out in it to care much.

I did add some leopard shoes though. Because, of course.

  2. Cute shoes! They look really useful.

    Tell me about this athletic body - what do you do exercise-wise? (Hint, encourage me by saying you do heaps of exercise, not that it's just good genes!)

    1. I do heaps of exercise. That's true. But I'm not a gym rat. I actually don't belong to a gym. I have everything I need at home; weights, ballet barre, yoga mat. Plus, I run and play tennis obsessively in the summer. I am also a plant-based eater. If we're splitting hairs, technically I'm not vegan, because I wear leather and all that, but I don't eat animal products, save the odd piece of fish once and again when I'm travelling and the only other option is a plate full of cheese on the "vegetarian" menu. Not really a groundbreaking secret though. The key is to keep mixing it up and don't let tour body get "used" to one routine for too long. In other words, kick your own ass.
