Winter Light


Winter Light

Despite the wind and the freezing cold weather, the light at this time of year can be the most pure and beautiful.

I found myself stood, coffee in hand, gazing out of my bedroom window today. It was just before 10am and my bedroom had been drenched in white sunlight.

I decided to use the perfect conditions to go out and shoot this outfit post – styling up a new cut of ASOS Denim.

In non-stretch fabric, they have a low crotch and a tapered fit – cut loosely around the thigh and tapered from the knee to the ankle. The finishing touch is the rips and abrasions on the left knee.

When I saw these jeans, I automatically knew that I wanted to create a 1990s look. Teaming with a white roll neck and chunky trainers, there’s definitely a Saved By The Bell vibe going on. And the light pinstripe of the blazer is also reminiscent of nights out I had at school. Bring it all back (in the words of S Club 7).

I didn’t want to go too full on with my hair. There’s enough going on with the outfit, so I decided to slick it back. Despite using a high-hold pomade and fixing with maximum hold hairspray, my hair took an absolute blasting from the wind.

I finished my afternoon off with my friend Ali in front of the open fire at The White Horse pub in Peckham. Perched with a pint of Amstel and a bowl of fries – this is what Sundays were made for.
