An Evening In Bale

The little village of Bale in Croatia was definitely one of my favourites out of all we visited in Istria.

This town in Istria is so beautiful and worth stopping in for a coffee and a wander.

Out-Of-Office

I’m away with my husband’s family in Croatia and the last thing I want to do is lock myself away in the dark to answer emails, write and edit all day. So for now you’ll find my by the pool.

Staying Creative & Inspired Through Travel

I’ve escaped the city this week, to spend time with friends in Montmelard. The simpler way of life has helped me to feel more inspired.

Always In Denim

Believe it or not, finding my comfort zone has actually given me the confidence to experiment more with my style. I really love to elevate the ordinary, taking my simple style and adding in a detail that changes things up.

Black In Summer?

I admit black may not be your colour of choice when it comes to what to wear on a hot summer day but come the evening, when the temperature drops a little and the sun’s rays no longer penetrate, it’s perfect. And if you have a golden tan then all the better for showing it off.

That’s A Wrap

I recently came across a British womenswear brand called Wrap London. The brand has been around for years, are based just down the road from me and share my love for well-made clothing, made with natural materials.

Committed To A Better Future

I very rarely feature fast fashion brands as I think there’s a better way to do things but when I discovered Mango’s Committed Collection I wanted to show my support. Fast fashion brands are not going to be able to change their ways overnight but testing the waters with sustainable collections is a good start.

100 Years Of The Breton

As you’ve probably gathered by now, I love a stripe and the Breton t-shirt (or marinière, as it’s known in France) is a favourite of mine. According to the NY Times, this year marks 100 years of the Breton.

Spring In Stripes

As you’ve all probably worked out, there’s always space in my wardrobe for another stripe. The French and Danish are two of my favourite nations for culture, style, food and design; and they each do stripes like no one else.

The Frill of It

I’m not averse to a cheeky frill, they bring a hint of femininity to my often tomboyish looks. Frills were a major trend last season and continue to be this one.

Check Mate

Checks seem to be one of the major trends this season and I’m pretty happy about it. For someone that doesn’t wear a lot of print, checks are something I can really get into, like an entry-level print for the unaccustomed.

The Finery’s Got Gold A-Peel

Finally, I’ve got hold of a pair of these amazing earrings from The Finery. I’ve worn them just once and have already been complimented on them many times. If you’re a fan (ha, ha), you better get over to their site quickly as I think they’re going to disappear again fast.

All Black Doesn’t Have To Be Too Serious

Even though I have a fairly stripped back style I rarely wear all black; I find it can be a bit too serious. But for days when I do, I like to add something a bit fun or casual into the look to take the edge off.

Is It Autumn, Yet?

I guess it must be Autumn, with Hallowe’en on Monday and Guy Fawkes’ Night just around the corner. I’ve been stocking up on a few transitional essentials that will work just as well come winter, with a bit of tactical layering.

Shine On

Even though the days have been a little chilly I’m sticking with skirts for as long as I can, I’m just not ready to wear jeans everyday which is usually what happens. It helps to wear silk and leather on top; most people assume that silk is best for the summer but it’s actually a […]

A Night In A 12th Century French Chateau

Airbnb came up trumps for us with this one, a 12th century French chateau in the Loire region. Leaving the South of France and heading back towards London was hard but staying somewhere so beautiful certainly eased the pain. Gilles and Sylvie the chateau’s owners were very warm and welcoming, greeting us with a glass […]

Lunch With Bond at The Colombe d’Or

Hidden behind a large stone wall in the pretty little town of Saint-Paul de Vence is an iconic restaurant and hotel, the Colombe d’Or. As you walk in through its giant gated archway you are met by a giant thumb, the work of French sculptor César. Hung on its walls are paintings and illustrations by […]

Postcards From The Camargue

We started our “mini-moon” in The Camargue, an area of France defined by its salt plains and marsh lands; and famous for its white horses, flamingoes and bulls (sorry, I didn’t manage to capture a shot of any of these animals, just a friendly donkey). The Camargue is very different to anywhere else I’ve been […]

Just Call Me The Storm Dodger

What’s the deal with this weather, one minute it’s sunny the next torrential rain and lightning. I just want to get out in the sun without worrying if I’ve got an umbrella (just in case). I love proper summer evenings in London, sitting outside a bar or in the garden with a crisp glass of […]

Breton Stripes & A Leather Bomber

Transitioning from spring to summer can be difficult, you leave the house and the sun’s out and it’s a rather pleasant 18°C and then the next the next thing you know it’s down to 12°C before it’s even lunchtime. Choosing the right layers and fabrics is important for getting your trans-seasonal wardrobe right. A leather […]

Soft Waves By The Bardou

I love it when someone else does my hair (or make-up). I swear I have the most challenging locks. I often let my hair decide what parting I’ll have for the day in an attempt to make my life just a little bit easier but then in the hands of a hairdresser it lays down […]

Shooting After Olaplex

At the weekend I was treated to my first Olaplex treatment by the team at Blue Tit, in their recently opened salon in Brixton. They are well known for their creative colouring skills and this is why they work with Olaplex, a hair treatment that reduces breakage and damage to colour-treated hair. I’ve had my […]

A Weekend In Bilbao

I’ve wanted to go to Bilbao and visit the Guggenheim since I was at school and first came across the work of architect Frank Gehry. I’ve waited a long time to see it but it was utterly worth it, the building is stunning, glinting silver in the bright light and pale gold when it’s cloudy. […]

AW16 LFW Day 2

I’ve finally accepted that blue is my colour, I’m constantly drawn to it. It was always my favourite colour as a little girl (I was never a pink loving girl) and I dallied with turquoise as a teenager but now I’m an adult it’s the more muted tones of blue that I like to wear. […]

It was time for comfort on LFW Day 4, out came my favourite white bomber jacket by incredible British designer, Jonathan Saunders.

Not So Common, Yet

For Christmas, my fiancé very kindly bought me a pair of Common Projects!! I became aware of this understated trainer brand about a year ago and I’d been dying for a pair ever since. They are very minimal in design, no stripes, no mention of the brand name, just ten digits on the side stamped […]

Pink Walls & Grey Coats

As I’ve mentioned more than once, I’ve gotten really into navy and grey this season. Okay, I  guess obsessed would be more appropriate but it’s just such an easy combination. I really wanted to find a good grey coat this winter, something versatile that would work with 90% of my wardrobe. Grey is an easy […]

Military Mood

I love a military coat and they’ve been so popular this season. My favourite is this long version from Theory, a brand I’ve been in love with for a very long time. Their look and style is minimal and smart, and their pieces are always very good quality. I’ve teamed their Jonmik coat with a simple […]
