What are you obsessing over right now?
I'm not sure it's a trend, but I'm really enjoying experimenting with length lately. As a fairly short girl, I always imagined midi and maxi skirts would drown me, but both styles have become something I feel suit me the more I wear them.

What is your favorite outfit to throw on when you are in a style crunch?
I usually start with a key piece and work with accessories, shoes and jackets from there. You can't go wrong with a pair of denim shorts. My vintage Levis are worn all the time as they can be paired with such a range of tops, accessories and footwear.

Where is the strangest place you’ve drawn inspiration from?
I generally get inspired from a whole range of places, whether it be from Tumblr or Lookbook, from strangers or my friends. I guess the strangest place I am inspired by is the nature around me.

Who is your style icon?
I know pretty much everyone would say this, but the Olsen twins.

Where’s the best place to shop in your city?
I live in a small village by the coast and the decent shops are over an hour away! Although most of my clothes are off eBay, I really love vintage shopping in the city of York.

Best style advice ever received?
There are no rules, wear what you want.
