Happy New year! It’s been a shameful amount of time since my last blog. I’ve been busy co-writing a new book, performing a one-woman-play and looking after my infant son. I’ve tried not to give myself a hard time for not blogging, I have a tendency to put pressure on myself and beat myself up when I don’t reach my own absurd standards. However, for the time being, work has calmed down and I’ll have a little more time to devote to blogging. You might notice that the site has a new look and a new name. I decided to change Haute Hoskins to Rosa Hoskins, as I’ve altered the focus of the blog and writing about mental health under the name Haute Hoskins felt flippant and inappropriate. There will be more posts on mental health in the coming weeks.
I thought that my style would change dramatically after I had a baby, but I don’t think it has. I’m wearing more prints as they disguise baby vomit, and other bodily fluids I often find about my person these days. I was drawn to this dress from RIXO London (similar here) months ago and I bought it back in the summer, long before I could fit into it. I’ve paired it with a biker (similar here) from Teatum Jones AW17 collection. The jacket is made out of plastic coated wool and cleaned with the stroke of a wet-wipe, also a major plus on the baby front. My velvet boots are from Zara (similar here), which are not practical at all, but I couldn’t stand a look that was too utilitarian.
