A Spring In My Step In Yellow Trousers

spring daywhistles3whistles2


I’ve always wanted to be one of those people that leaps out of bed in the morning, with a spring in my step declaring ‘it’s a beautiful morning’ .

But unfortunately that’s not real life, well not my life anyway, and with everybody being so busy these days, things often begin with a more sluggish approach. My spring in my step tends to happen right after my first cup of coffee.

However, this morning the sun was out really early in London, and it did have me jump out of bed, aided by a noisy 14 month old boy.

I decided to capitalise too by grabbing my yellow trousers from Zara and this top from Whistles which has become one of my wardrobe favourites.

I was trying to find a design that would represent my brand and website and think these are it.

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 !

Summer bag du jour

  When I was on holiday this month, I realised that there was a large gap in my wardrobe. While lounging in a warm sunny climate, one thing you don’t want to do is lug around a heavy leather bag. … Continue reading

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.
