Bargain Boots to see you through ’till Spring

I know Spring is coming and we should all be thinking of sandals, flip flops, mules etc, but this is England, and I still haven’t taken off my reliable winter boots. And to be honest, I’m getting a little sick of them. So I’ve been hunting the high-street for some more exciting but inexpensive boots to see me through until real spring (June perhaps?!) and … Continue reading Bargain Boots to see you through ’till Spring

Beautiful notebooks to help you get your s&!t together in 2017

One of my favourite things about New Year is getting a new diary, and although I made the mistake of buying an 18-month planner last summer, I’ve still managed to acquire an excessive collection of pretty notebooks. New year, new notebook and all that jazz. I mean, bags are cool, shoes are pretty useful too, but notebooks are what it’s really all about. And I … Continue reading Beautiful notebooks to help you get your s&!t together in 2017

7 Beautiful Cashmere Jumpers Under £100 

Right, before you call me a complete grinch, let me just say that I love Christmas. Mince pies, mulled wine, presents, food, etc etc, right up my street! But.. it is cold, tiring, and for most of December, I can think of nothing I’d prefer over some chill time at home with one of the better Christmas movies (I’m talking Love Actually, Home Alone, The … Continue reading 7 Beautiful Cashmere Jumpers Under £100 

November Style Staple – Seven of the Cosiest Blanket Scarves

As John Snow would say ‘Winter is here.’ The weather is chilly, the mulled wine is mulling and it’s finally time to get your snuggle on. God knows we’d all prefer to stay in our jammies drinking wine and watching netflix, but for those days where you simply have to leave the house for boring tasks, some snuggly outerwear is just the ticket. And my favourite … Continue reading November Style Staple – Seven of the Cosiest Blanket Scarves

Halloween inspired wardrobe wonders you’ll want to wear all year

Elaborate fancy dress and jaw-droppingly gruesome makeup? Nope. I like to do Halloween a little more half-assed-ly, because, to be honest, Halloween is always a bit of a non-event. So, spending loads of cash on a costume and sanity on trying to do hideous makeup? No thanks. However, halloween is the perfect excuse for a number of things. Themed chocolate ✓, making my skeleton gingerbread ✓, spending … Continue reading Halloween inspired wardrobe wonders you’ll want to wear all year

October’s Style Staple – Five Fedoras Under £30

I have a real love/hate affair with Fedoras. I love the look of them (mainly on Pinterest), I love the idea of them, I especially love them on other people, but I usually hate my head in them. Which is why I am not willing to make a huge investment into one. And more importantly when they fly off with every gust of wind (which they always do), you … Continue reading October’s Style Staple – Five Fedoras Under £30

September’s Style Staple: The Bomber

Ah September. The most emotionally confusing month of the year. It marks the end of summer, which obviously equates to the solemn end of surviving off a liquid diet of Rose, in some weird, godly, wine/water switcheroo. But it does bring some joys; coats, cashmere and comfort food, winter luxuries can finally be justified. The weather front, is, however, dubious. Indian summer to torrential rain … Continue reading September’s Style Staple: The Bomber

The understated espadrille – the heroes of summer

As someone who is chronically too lazy to paint my toenails and with a mild phobia of feet, I am loathe to force them on any poor pedicurist. Thus summer sandals are not my friends, and peep toes? – positively enemies. This should make summer shoes a minefield, if it wasn’t for the gloriously understated espadrilles. Comfortable, toe-hiding, and undeniably summery, espadrilles are the understated … Continue reading The understated espadrille – the heroes of summer

Chokers – How to wear them (And how not to)

For a long time I have considered chokers a dubious sartorial statement. I think my distaste roots in the nauseating flashback I get of those stringy ‘tattoo’ chokers in every party bag of every kids party I ever went to (along with the obligatory dodgy cake wrapped in napkin). But now, summer around the corner, I am considering whether I have unreasonably tarred them with an … Continue reading Chokers – How to wear them (And how not to)

Shoes to put the Spring in your step!

No it doesn’t feel like it, but technically Spring really is here. Having said that, it doesn’t mean much, an hour less sleep, foreign-farmed daffodils and the dreaded “Easter weight” is the best we’re probably going to get. But we have to embrace it anyhow, and what better way than with some beautiful spring fashion (aka not black). Spring shoes are a tricky one, you really … Continue reading Shoes to put the Spring in your step!
