How to style Steranko for Summer

Following on from my guest blog on Steranko’s website last week (which you can also read here), I decided to go and raid their stock for some great examples of making layers work for summer. Styling and photography by me. 

The Anouk dress works perfectly over this spotted shirt, and the Lagoon clutch bag adds just the right amount of chic to contrast the Adidas trainers.


This second outfit may not exactly constitute ‘layering’ but I couldn’t resist the print clashing in this outfit. The ‘Sam’ blouse can be worn open for a more relaxed sort of layer. It’s over a plain vest top here, but might also work well with a pop of colour underneath or a simple cardigan on top. These pants are a divine fit, and whilst these shoes are my own, Hasbeens would do the job very nicely indeed!


The lighter colour palette of this Maison Scotch top and scarf combination (available in store) is perfect for the summer months.


Young Enterprise: New Charity Beanies!

On a slightly random note (and one of shameless self-promotion), I thought I’d take a moment to share this video with you all. I made it last week as a promotional video for my Young Enterprise company, The Beanie Shop. The beanies modelled in the advert are part of our latest range, ‘SURVIVOR.’ The most recent in a growing collection of slogan beanies, ‘SURVIVOR’ was created to raise awareness for the inspirational people that survive mental and physical illnesses. £1 from every beanie we sell goes to Beat and The Teenage Cancer Trust, meaning these beanies not only look good, but do good. What’s more, they allow our customers to speak their mind without saying a word.

And just because they’re so pretty and I’m so proud, here are a couple of our promotional photos. Styling, creative direction and photography by me.
