What I’m Wearing: Messy Bun & Sixties Specs

Old hat, sure – just poke your head out the car window like I did yesterday in any part of London and you’ll see any number of impressive high buns and heavy-rimmed specs combos – but still a super satisfying look if like me you’re a) thrilled with new-length hair after over a decade of having it short and b) trying a new style of specs for the first time, well, in over a decade. So what may look like so overly tried and tested, haven’t we seen this a million times already and done so much better is still bringing me a daily snippet of sunshine.
