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.

Don’t Give Me The Cold Shoulder

Finally it’s time to show some shoulder, don some sandals and protect those peeps with some sunglasses. Yes, I’m excited that I can leave the house without a coat and not worry that I’ll freeze my butt off 2 hours later when the weather suddenly decides to play a joke on me.

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.

Feeling Fresh In Linen

We all know how amazing and versatile a crisp white cotton shirt is but how many of you own a white linen shirt? Linen has quite a different feel, often stiff when you first wear it but softening with time, the more you wear and wash it.

Transitional Trench

If you buy one coat at this time of the year it has to be a trench coat. It’s the perfect transitional coat and a versatile one; wear it over a cashmere knit on chilly days and then swap it for a simple t-shirt when the temperature rises a few degrees.
