That Stripe Life

There are so many tales about wearing stripes – which direction makes you appear skinnier or slimmer? I’ll never know. Being totally honest, I don’t actually care. I like stripes no matter what direction they’re going in. I know I…

A Sprinkle of Pattern

I’m wearing a leather jacket in August. Seems weird, but with the “summer” Yorkshire’s been having at the moment – it’s completely justified. That’s one thing I will never be able to get go of. Leather jackets (faux) are the…

Hiya!

I'm Anika, I live in Yorkshire, I was born in May, and I blog about lifestyle and street style. Sometimes I share a photography session or two on here also. Take a look around - happy reading!

The Playsuit: A Summer Essential

There have been many occasions, where I’m attending an event, going out, or heading to a party and have no idea what to wear. It’s 300 million degrees out, it’s super sweaty and I’m too lazy to find a top…

Burgundy Beanie Magic

Is it just me that’s obsessed with beanie hats? Nope? Okay that’s good to know. I absolutely adore them, and there’s something about adding a beanie hat to an outfit that just alters the look… in a good way. Today’s…

Passion for Plum

I love this colour! Any chance to wear it I’m totally going to take advantage of and today is the day. I don’t do a whole lot of workwear posts on Anika May because I no longer work in an…

Polo Season

Autumn is an awesome time of year. It’s awesome for many reasons, and one of those reasons is being able to wear polo neck jumpers that are light grey without worrying about sweating through it. Was that too weird to…

Another Night on the Town

Happy November! Yaaaay! Another OOTD! Or rather, OOTN. As I’ve mentioned in like a hundred posts, I love to go out. When I first turned eighteen, I didn’t go near nightclubs, I always thought they were tacky and a little…
