Discover more about the lovely Sara from the blog Notes From A Stylist. We love her style tips and are constantly being inspired by her fashionable choices.

What was the inspiration behind starting your blog?

I was living in New York and styling as the day job then took some fashion journalism classes in the evenings and the first homework was to start a blog. That was way back in 2009, I’ve been messing about on it ever since.


What sparked your interest in fashion and styling?

I retrained as a fashion stylist after kids as my own style had slumped into a bit of a rut – fast forward to today and I still enjoy helping people with their own personal style. As I’ve got older it’s been fun keeping my style mojo on track so the blog has morphed into a place where you can find out how to do the same.


What is your go-to top styling tip?

Cherry pick something from the trends each year and don’t pile in and buy it all up – try to keep your closet paired back to the things you actually wear and don’t needlessly buy new when you can re-purpose or re-style other pieces you already have. Trends tend to be ‘in’ for a few years – e.g. plaid or tartan and tweed every winter, linens, crochets and diaphanous layers in the summer – remember what you bought last season and wear it again… I often forget what I bought last season as I’ve packed it away in a cupboard. I’m then often happily surprised when I break it all out again so I can then reconsider what I buy new.


Tell us one thing that our blog readers may not know about you…

I’m doing the Annapurna Trail in the Himalayas in November so am spending most of my days hiking the Surrey Hills with my dogs in an attempt to get prepped. I’m ever so slightly terrified so wish me luck!


And finally, is there anything you would like to share with our readers?

Just a big thanks for taking the time to read about my blog and if you like what you see pop over and visit more often.
