DIY Polka Dot Tights

Recreate the look with Amy's Polka Dot Tights tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

Classic casual or casual classic. I like to be comfortable and, with my children and my 'making' lifestyle, I like to wear things that are easily washed. I am not a trendy person so I live in things I can wear year after year.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

I love my jeans, my brown boots and slip-on mules, I love cardigans and long sleeve tees. 

Who are your style icons?

I don't know that I cling to a specific icon's style but I do appreciate the style of Blake Lively, Rachel Bilson, Victoria Beckham and, yes, Kate, wife of Prince William.

Do you have any favourite designers?

Haha! No. I don't pay attention enough for that.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

I really like H&M - good style for nice price. I like Boden, Anthropologie & Gap.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I do sometimes but mostly, I keep things very simple.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

My only tip is to make sure you dress in a way that is comfortable for you physically and is true to who you are. Owning who and what you are is the most important thing to put on each day.

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

None really. I find most of my inspiration from scrolling through Pinterest.
