Timeless Transitional Pieces I Wear Every Year

Timeless Transitional Pieces I Wear Every Year


After the end of summer, the weather seems to go through this weird phase where it could be pretty cool one day, and then glorious sunshine the next. The joys of dressing for the start of autumn entail us having to make decisions on our outfits we may regret: will the jumper I wear be too thick? Will going without tights result in me having permanent goosebumps the whole day? Is it time for a coat yet or am I going to be hauling it around all day as it's too warm? 

Figuring out what clothing to wear to transition between summer to autumn can always be a bit of a nightmare, but I've found that sticking to some classics always sees me through one way or another. With these transitional pieces, I'm able to tailor my outfits to work in hot or cold climates, meaning that if the sun suddenly breaks through the clouds halfway through the day, I'm not left dressed like I'm ready for a snowstorm.

Sustainable Living (My Journey So Far)

Sustainable Living (My Journey So Far)

At the start of the year, I sat down to make my resolutions and had a long hard think about what I wanted to achieve in 2019. 

Amongst the usual things, there was one that I'd been thinking about for a long time - to live a more sustainable life. 

I come from a family who have been quite proactive about living sustainably for a long while: I was taught from a young age about recycling, make do and mend, and not wasting energy, but a few things that we hadn't even considered until recently was our use of plastic and buying into fast fashion. 

I think everyone was shocked by Blue Planet last year, and I love how the show resulted in a mass movement to reduce our plastic waste - I think we don't realise the scale of a problem until it's put right in front of us to see for ourselves.

What I've Read (So Far) in 2019

What I've Read (So Far) in 2019


Contains gifted items (marked with a *) and affiliate links

If you remember from my New Year's Resolutions from the start of the year, I set myself a pretty big task. I wanted to read 15 books this year, and I thought I'd comfortably reach that (maybe even going a few books over). 

When I found myself at the start of June already smashing that goal, I had to rethink my reading goal for this year, and so upped it to 30! If you told me a few years ago that I would be reading that many books in the space of a year, I would have laughed so much my TBR pile would have fallen on me and crushed me. 

I've always been a bookworm, but I think we all end up convincing ourselves that due to work and social commitments that we just don't have time to read anymore. However, I think we can all find the time to pick up a book and get lost in it, even it's a little every day. I set my alarm earlier in the mornings to read before starting work, and go to bed earlier to do the same before sleeping. I also have started making sure I have my Kindle in my bag whenever I know I'll be sitting on a train for a long time. 

Seeing as I'm about two thirds through my reading challenge this year, I thought I'd give you a quick run-through of what I loved and what I wasn't so keen on in case you're looking for some new books to indulge in this year!

What Clothing To Pack For Southeast Asia

Packing is always one of the biggest tasks when preparing to go on a trip, and a huge factor that you have to consider is what clothes to take. 

It can be one thing looking at the weather of the country you're going to and then throwing in all your summer clothing into your case or backpack, but you'll soon come to realise that there are some items that are unsuitable or unpractical. 

This is especially true to for Southeast Asia, where as well as the different climates you also have to think about respecting local customs of how to dress. 

If you are going to be backpacking to a few different countries in the continent, you'll want to make sure every piece of clothing you bring with you can earn its keep - can you wear it with the other items you take with you? Is it durable enough to last however long you're backpacking for? Does it look okay without being ironed? 

When I sort out my clothes for travelling, I always treat it like a mini capsule wardrobe, making sure I pack items that can be worn in multiple combinations. This normally means I pack a fair amount of clothing in block colours with a couple of patterned pieces thrown in (I only pack one or two black items as black really absorbs heat, and you want to be staying as cool as possible in Southeast Asia). 

Regardless of how long you're heading to this beautiful part of the world for, I'm going to split up your travel wardrobe into different sections to help you to figure out what to pack and what to leave at home.
