Over the years I have made a conscious effort to simplify my own style, keeping it as fuss free and comfortable as possible, while maintaining an elegance, even if at times this is somewhat understated. As the days get busier, this calmness reflected in my clothing keeps me on task.

Bare feet, soft waves, a glow of light and shadow, the touch of detail and print all captured the mood I felt for this shoot. I must confess I often shy away from print, knowing I will soon tire of it, however, when paired back with the simplicity of a black or otherwise neutral piece, it comes together. A relaxed drama.

The animal print is essentially a classic- despite which it is abused often. The best way to go about incorporating it into your wardrobe is to keep it simple, team it with an elegant neutral and minimise the use of jewellery and accessories. Opt for a neutral shoe and bag, allow for natural makeup and hair and of course proceed with confidence. I like to pair a short leg length- such as shorts or a skirt with a longer arm length and sleeveless top with trousers for balance. Although there are some exceptions, it is nice to show skin in a subtle way.
