I’ve been curled up at night keeping warm re-watching Gossip Girl since I returned from my holiday last week, and it’s inspired me to dress better. To channel my inner Blair and Serena, learn to accessorise, and to be braver with my styling. Plus, what better way to see in the new season than to change up your wardrobe, right?
