When I lived at home with my parents, I would often leave the house dressed up like a Christmas tree. My look was usually totally out of place with my surroundings. My Mum didn’t try to stifle my flamboyance, but would often suggest that I slung a denim jacket over whatever frivolous outfit was I wearing. I would groan in exasperation, in the way only a teenager can. Looking back, she was inevitably right, which was annoying at the time, but ultimately reassuring. I’ve replaced the denim jacket with a leather one, and I like to style dressy¬†clothes with casual, sporty basics. This skirt is by Lisa Redman, the t-shirt is from American Apparel, the trainers by Nike and the jacket is by Whistles.
