MANCHESTER FASHION

Manchester Fashion

As a Manchester fashion blogger, the bohemian, hip Northern Quarter of the city has been my playground for many years: notably, for its photogenic urban backdrops and abundance of street art. With paste ups proudly sat aside hand-finished stencils, it's an area that's flourished alongside its creative counterpart: music. In fact, it was through music that I discovered the Northern Quarter existed (back in the early 2000s).

SEPTEMBER FASHION :: EMILY AND FIN NANCY DRESS

September fashion- Emily and Fin Nancy Dress

September, you remind me of a teenager- one minute you're laying it on thick with lashings of sunshine, the next you're scolding me with a tantrum of rain. And, you expect me to put up with this behaviour? Well, I do because I love the way you bring me the start of autumn. Readers, I know you're just as excited for the change of season as I am but are you finding this transitional period difficult to dress for? Because, I am.

LEAVING TEACHING :: ONE YEAR ON

Leaving Teaching - One Year On

Who could deny that autumn is on its way? Darker nights are drawing in, mornings are laced with dew and there's a cooler nip in the evening air. I've said it before but, to me, the change between August and September always feels greater than any other seasonal change. I used to relate this to the start of a new school year, but this is the first academic year that I won't be returning to a classroom.
