Have you ever heard the expression that this just isn't your day? That luck seems to play a factor in everyday decisions that will consequently make you question why you ever got out of bed in the first place. The world will present fresh hurdles for you to tackle every day. It could be anything from receiving an overdue utility bill or a flood of unwanted emails. The important thing is for you to be centred, focused and feel fresh in order for you to tackle these challenges and effectively conquer them without breaking your stride.
You know me, I love suiting up, looking smart and presentable. Although day-to-day I'm usually wearing dark clothing, mainly ripped jeans and khaki - exactly like the outfit in this urban style edit. This outfit is great especially the khaki longline parka by Religion from ASOS, which I've worn pretty much every day this week when working from home or walking my dog. At home, I like to feel comfortable, a lot of the time I just throw on a pair of shorts and wear a hooded top. To be honest if I didn't have to visit the post office every few hours, the coffee shop or have the postman drop off some parcels - I would probably just sit in my pants all day!
Over time, clothing can become synonymous with a particular event — take the crisp whites of Wimbledon as an example. Golf is no exception. With its specific, smart dress code, we’ve witnessed a move from the course to our everyday wardrobes. Now, the clothing is more than just sportswear. In this article, menswear designer and polo shirt pioneer Ralph Lauren explores how golf clothing has infiltrated our wardrobes.
George Burns once said that you can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old. This saying rings very true of MrQuintessential. Middle-aged men tend to dress safely and conservatively, not experimenting with colour and detail. In fact that is actually me 'on paper'. Always wearing black but after working with MrQuintessential on their latest AW17 campaign, they've taught me a thing or two about adding colour to my outfits. Something to try outside of this campaign maybe!
'Let’s do coffee' - it's something I say and hear countless times during the working week. So it was a welcome break, even for the sake of variety, to accept an invitation with fellow female blogger Sophie Milner for Champagne Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason as part of the Virgin Experience Days. But what does one wear to Afternoon tea? Even the words 'afternoon tea' evoke quintessential English tradition and perhaps for some people their mind will gravitate towards classic or formal dress code.
