Lucy Matthews caught up with the fashion designer and blogger to chat about her love for fashion, style and of course some good old Yorkshire puddings.
Is this your first time in Yorkshire?
No, I have family that live near York so I visit once or twice a year.
Would you say the style and fashion down south is different to up north?
I think gone are the days where there is a north/south divide, I think girls in the North aren’t afraid to have fun with fashion which I really admire.
The white shirt is obviously a timeless classic. How would you style a white shirt?
I love to wear a white shirt slightly unbuttoned with the sleeves rolled up for a more relaxed look.
