About Dreams


Impossible not to feel a little Julie Christie in Dr Zhivago in this hat. In the book, there’s a beautiful quote about dreams which perfectly captures how often it’s the little things that go unnoticed that can make the biggest impact…

I’ve been rushing round frantically trying to get organised for Christmas and things done as the year closes, and somehow, serendipitously, little things have been falling into place without me even realising – an email arriving in time to be answered before dashing out, a delivery turning up just as I get home. And then, the bigger things, the ideas, creative splashes falling into place, connecting up and feeling just right when so often it’s hit and miss. Is that an end of year thing? Taking a moment to breathe after trying so hard at it all – projects, family, work; the eternal juggling act. The dream is to have all those things going smoothly, succeeding and no tears at the end of it. Nothing missed, nothing forgotten, nothing lost. Somehow, in the all craziness, you managed to do it all…

“About dreams. It is usually taken for granted that you dream of something that has made a particularly strong impression on you during the day, but it seems to me it’s just the contrary. Often it´s something you paid no attention to at the time – a vague thought that you didn’t bother to think out to the end, words spoken without feeling and which passed unnoticed — these are the things that return at night, clothed in flesh and blood, and they become the subjects of dreams, as if to make up for having been ignored during waking hours.”
― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

I’ve kept this outfit super simple – completely in love with this mannish grey blazer (the Boyfriend, shall we call it?) by Gestuz and new jumper from Toast which has the most gorgeous loose neck (being super naughty as this is actually one of my Christmas presents, ssh!). Details, like the vintage hat and and rose gold necklace are ones I’m planning to wear both Friday and Saturday night this week, so apologies in advance as you will most definitely be seeing them again!


I am wearing Gestuz coat via Tessuti*, Toast jumper, Baukjen leather leggings, Kate Sheridan bag and New Balance sneakers


Necklaces by Antonio Bayona (shorter one*) and Natalie Marie Jewellery (longer one)
