    Black, White and Splashes of Cow print: 5 quick steps to styling monochrome like a fashionista

    Okay. First of all no, you aren’t seeing things…. this post is fashionably late. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that Monday’s my usual posting day, but let’s just say a combination of the weather and other um… unforeseen circumstances meant I couldn’t serve this look to you yesterday (sorry!) In my last post, we went back to basics, so this time around I thought I’d switch things up and show you how to rock monochrome like a fashionista ’cause you know… get you a girl who can do both and all that. Holding that casual Insta baddie pose like… (I actually amost fell over…

    Back to Basics: My top 5 must-have neutrals for Autumn-Winter 19/20

    If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably know two things: 1) I’m a huge fan of colour. 2) I made a decision a while back to start using ‘She Walks Tall’ as a space to discuss deeper topics, particularly the controversial ones. I’m also a firm believer in the idea that variety is the spice of life though and since I don’t wanna be that girl who’s always getting all heavy on ya, this time around I thought I’d switch things up with some pure and simple fashion. I’m servin’ you a hot new look and sharing my top 5 must-have neutrals for the cooler months, so sit back and…

    9 reasons why over-editing your photos is irresponsible

    Editing (a.k.a. image retouching). It’s something that’s become so normalised in mainstream media and, more recently in the blogging world. Admittedly, it’s one of the best ways to take your Insta snaps from basic to bangin’ when used in moderation, but with editing apps making ‘perfection’ so accessible, it’s easy to go overboard without thinking twice about the impact. And sure, I get that everyone wants to look their best in photos, but I also believe that people in the public sphere should be very self-aware when it comes to portraying a certain image. With that in mind, here are 9 reasons why over-editing your photos as a blogger, influencer or…

    5 reasons to shop from your wardrobe more… #NoBuyChallenge 🛒🛒

    Okay, so I have a confession to make: I’m a bit of a shopaholic. It probably has something to do with the fact that I’m a (part time) blogger, but over the past year I’ve found myself constantly buying new clothes. I had this moment a while back where I looked around my bedroom and just kind of thought “Whoa there, girl… you have waaaaaaaay too much stuff.” So what did I do? I set myself a challenge not to buy any new clothes for the whole of October (shocker, I know) and guess what? I absolutely smashed it. I’ve found myself really enjoying my #NoBuyChallenge, so I thought I’d…

    My top 7 tips for taking bangin’ pics for your Instagram/Blog… with your phone camera! 📱📱

    As some of you may know, I’ve been blogging for just over a year now and quite a few people have commented on how good my pics are… thank you, thank you *bows*. I’m gonna let you into a little-known secret though: *whispers* you don’t need a snazzy camera to take high-quality pics.

I’ve been getting on just fine!  Since caring is sharing (and I care about you guys a lot), I thought I’d share some of my top tips for taking bangin’ pics with your trusty old phone, so here…

    Shaded: The 9 best and worst High Street Retailers for Diversity In Fashion 🕶️🕶️

    DIVERSITY: Noun /daɪˈvɜː(r)səti/ – The state of being diverse. DIVERSE: Adjective /dʌɪˈvəːs,ˈdʌɪvəːs/ – Showing a great deal of variety; very different. It’s something that’s so incredibly important, but unfortunately, in retail, it’s often forgotten about… or worse, totally ignored. Growing up, the lack of women who looked like me in the media was definitely something I noticed, but becoming a blogger in the past year has really opened my eyes to just how far the fashion industry has to go with inclusivity and diversity. As much as I love blogging, I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t been a little discouraging seeing just how uninclusive the blogging sphere can be……
