The Greenhouse Effect

Ever since I was a child I've always had an affinity towards plants, from the moment I could put one foot in front of the other my grandma would take me around her garden, over the years she taught me all the latin names of the plants in her award-winning garden; looking back this was quite a remarkable feat on my behalf, I would have only been about five or six years old at the time. Much to my grandmas delight, my floral fascination did not stop there. My biology major at university heavily featured plant-based subjects and I soon began to discover this new found appreciation for our leafy counterparts - I mean if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be here now! 

Ever since watching a David Attenborough documentary about the secret life of plants, I've wanted to visit the Royal Botanic Gardens in London and luckily for me I just so happened to get the chance not only to experience the gardens in all their glory, but I was also able to capture some content there to share with you all as well! 

Lately I have been looking to branch out into different realms of the fashion world rather than solely focusing on suiting. I have been heavily influenced by the safari aesthetic as of late and have been drawing quite a lot of inspiration from around the globe, however it was definitely Pitti that put safari back on the map. The relaxed approach to tailoring and the light neutral tones were a massive draw card for me and it was refreshing to venture away from my usual colour pallet. I hope you all enjoy my David Attenborough/safari inspired looks, and do let me know what you think in the comments below!
