In this new series I’m chatting to fashion influencers and women in the style industry about their backgrounds, experiences, family life, fashion advice and style tips. And today is the turn of Cara — a good friend, Instagram legend and award winning blogger from Cheltenham.

It’s still pretty cold out there at the moment, isn’t it? And it’s STILL January. I don’t think any other month feels as though it goes this slowly. I know everyone I speak to is just wishing for the season of spring to arrive now; for all the pretty buds and flowers, and much less frost.

I am aiming to try and create a signature look for myself by mostly sticking to a style uniform that 100% works for me. I need clothes that are going to look stylish, compliment each other, work alongside each other…

You know when you have those moments – where the penny drops on something you’ve been struggling with in your head for a while? When (out loud) you go “Ohhhhh yes“, nodding along and grinning away? Well that has recently happened to me. This is regarding knowing what to wear every day. Because I have been struggling over the last few years with clothes and…

I absolutely love wearing shades. When the winter-time comes I really miss wearing my sunnies and being able to hide my tired eyes or a lack of make-up! My face always feels so well hidden under a cool pair of shades and I love them as I don’t need to make too much effort on a sunny day! Sunglasses also add a touch of style…
