I was inspired by the great, detailed posts of some of my favourite fashion blogger’s “style cogs”. Susie Bubble from style bubble has such an indescribably unique way mixing it up with both fashion-forward and essential classic pieces. Tricia from bits & bobbins demonstrates such a great sense of colour, pattern, as well as a wonderfully textured, handmade feel.

For someone who is obsessed with all aspects of fashion, I am not a much of a stylist or a colourist at all. The things that make up my cogs – on a day-to-day basis – are simple, essential, and without frill or decoration. In the summer time I loosen up a little but in the winter I adopt my urban uniform. This winter I have promised myself a new jacket, because that one (which I made) is worn out.
