Kirkpatrick

There's a certain kind of look you get when you're constantly travelling. I once labelled myself as a 'wanderer', but after a while even those wandering develop a uniform. Whether you're jet-setting for work or sightseeing in your own city, I've found that balancing comfort and simplicity are the way to go. When it comes to travelling, I like to disguise tired eyes with sunglasses, my favourite pair du jour is the 'Kirkpatrick' double bridged aviators from Hindsight Vintage. They have a dark tint, a black and gold frame, and that sliver of tortoiseshell that I can't leave the house without.

I've been wearing these tiny hoops from Kaytie Wu ever since I got them. In the last couple of months, I've accessorised every look with my ring, dainty jewellery, and a classic timepiece.

Spring's Rain

A little rain never hurt anyone.

We got off the tube at South Kensington and walked the long tunnel until we reached the museum, we spent approximately four seconds outside and got soaked in the process. As pretty as London looks in the sun, there's something a little more natural about seeing it in its natural state of rain. Luckily, I don't go anywhere without my trusty trench coat, or a uniform consisting of an oversized shirt and waxed jeans, so I was relatively waterproof. For jewellery, I added some mini hoops from Kaytie Wu kaytiewu.com- a jeweller specialising in the modern minimal aesthetic, and my Elie Beaumont watch.

Congratulations to the two babes that got married yesterday, walking into a room and being surprised by the people you love celebrating their love for each other is inspiring, and how we should spend every day.

The Perfect Leather Jacket

 http://www.anamaddock.com/2016/03/the-perfect-leather-jacket.html
A good leather jacket is a staple in most wardrobes. Chances are, you already know the colour and texture you're going for. I bought a thin leather jacket about two years ago, and found my perfect summer leather. Collar styles are constantly changing, but nothing beats a classic lapel. When it comes to hardware, it's better to choose one that will match your jewellery, or at least feel comfortable enough to mix metals. Having a jacket with too many details will date badly, instead opt for a classic and flattering fit. It's important to know what kind of fit you want your jacket to have, for me it's either a shrunken tapered back which gives it a biker shape- perfect for short girls, or an oversized off the shoulder boyfriend jacket.

Shenandoah Caverns

 Ana Maddock- Shenandoah Caverns Rainbow Lake
Once Shenandoah Valley's best kept secret, the Shenandoah Caverns were discovered by two young boys and their dog, in 1979. They were hunting rabbits, when they saw air coming up through a hole in the ground. The two boys climbed down with nothing but rope and some candles, and stumbled upon one of the most magical places in the world. The Caverns opened their doors in 1922, boasting seventeen rooms each varying in crystalline formation styles. Popular favourites include the "Bacon" formations, Capitol Dome, Grotto of the Gods, Diamond Cascades, and the Rainbow Lake- which made my jaw drop in awe. I spent a good time looking through the postcards, but couldn't find one to capture all of its beauty.

Emery

Tip-toed my way into Spring, and found the perfect clear frames.

Today I'm wearing the Hindsight Vintage 'Emery' sunglasses, aka the clear frames of my dreams. I've been on the hunt for a good pair of clear glasses/sunglasses for a while now, and hadn't been able to find any until I saw them in gold/pink. (Go on, have a look!) I don't know what it is about them, whether it's the iconic clubmaster shape, or the light pink hue that somehow added some sort of colour to my face, but they're currently perched at the top of my head and the first thing that's in my bag.

If you're a fan of this timeless frame, you HAVE to see Hindsight Vintage's 'Hume' frames, they're available in classic black and tortoiseshell, and have gold pin detailing in the corners just like the 'Emery' style. Swoon!

I've been on this vintage dress for quite a while and hadn't worn it sans tights until today, I love the embroidered sleeves and I'm having some doubts about whether or not to hem it so it becomes a shirt. At the moment I'm really into flouncy sleeves and cuff detailing, especially when worn with minimal styling like the black 'Oxford Large' watch I'm wearing by Elie Beaumont.

Keeping Time with Elie Beaumont

Nowadays, I find that there's nothing quite as valuable as downtime. During the last month of fashion I like to set some time aside -aiming for at least an hour in the morning and half an hour at night, but mostly getting fifteen minutes here and there. I try to keep a regular schedule to try and keep an aspect of sanity, and always try to gain new perspectives. Some of my favourite things to do are to relax and create.
 Ana Maddock- Keeping Time with Elie Beaumont- Oxford Large Black Nappa Leather
One of the things that has helped me this year, has been noting down the things that keep me inspired, and keeping time. The precious time I have right now is so valuable to me, and I don’t go anywhere without my Elie Beaumont Large Oxford watch.

The Easter Bunny

Eagerly awaiting the Vernal Equinox. This weekend leads the rebirth of the Northern Hemisphere, as the frost turns to dew and the green emerges from fresh soil. I'm leaving the dark of Winter for the light of Spring. If you need me you can find me underneath the Cherry Blossoms at St. Paul's.

Drop-by the house it's full of daffodils.

Had so much fun shooting for this platinum look. I've always wanted to go blonde, but many hairdressers have tried and failed at making my hair any colour lighter than dark brown. So I skipped past the pain and slipped into the blonde 'Sophia' wig by Fever Collection, it has long layers, a natural looking shine, and is heat resistant so it can be styled like your own hair. If you don't remember my last post about Fever, they are an amazing lingerie brand that also do wigs, costumes, body-stockings/hosiery, and eyelashes that vary from everyday natural looks to neon feathered Coachella vibes. At the moment you can find either the lace or polka dot bodystocking in my shopping basket to go under this cute khaki jumpsuit I got last winter; and the fishnet dress to go either under a body-con dress, or a plain white tee and denim cut-offs this summer.
