White On White

  After spending two evenings on bended knees painting some floor boards white, today I’m having a little white on white moment with my two life obsessions – clothes and interiors. It’s a crisp clean look for this season that … Continue reading

Layering Friday

A white shirt is a neccesity in any wardrobe at this time of year . Perfect for wearing under those much loved short sleeved tops that it’s not quite warm enough to wear on their own yet.

I nearly always wear this layered look with a statement necklace and a pair of heels, as I feel the whole outfit is more pulled together –  and you’re ready for anything the day brings.

Have a lovely weekend !

Weekend Highlights


I spent Saturday in Heathrow Airport with the lovely Isobel from NHJ Style Consultancy giving style tips to passengers in T5. With a selection of this season’s collections from Ted Baker and Harrods, there was plenty on our rails to suit everybody.

Sunday of course was Mother’s Day, so Archie and I spent it walking in the park, eating and sleeping .

My son is very obsessed with our cat George at the moment, although I can’t say the feelings are mutual. This cat is very wary of a sticky fingered toddler, and who could blame him.

A Wardrobe Key Piece



I bought this Reiss jumpsuit with me last week for my holidays and it proved really versatile. Boy, am I missing my golden sandy beach this week !

The jumpsuit is a great dress alternative for trouser lovers who need something dressy for  evening wear,  just add heels and a colourful belt and hey presto, an outfit in one.

For a more sober day time look, wear with a blazer which will sharpen its slightly loose fitting form.

Baby Blue Jeans



Distressed denim is having a moment this season and if you are a regular reader, you’ll know from some of my personal outfit posts that I’m quite a fan.

In the celebrity world, which as we know has a huge influence on brand popularity , nobody does distressed denim as well as fashionista Olivia P.

She’s wearing the ankle legging from AG Adriano Goldschmied which are a fab fitting brand and definitely an investment piece.

Of course, on the high street, there are much cheaper alternatives, and Topshop, Ted Baker and Zara currently have a wide choice of distressed denim.
