COS recently released a very special collection to celebrate their tenth year, 10 – a limited collection of ten pieces for women, men and children. The pattern-cutters and designers worked together to create each item with minimum waste.
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.
I’m constantly on a mission to find great essentials, given all this chilly weather I’ve been in search of the perfect winter wardrobe essentials, building blocks that I can mix match throughout the season and beyond.
I love a bright sunny day in winter, it perks me up even if it does have me wrapping up. The clothes I wear can have as much of a positive affect on me and my mood as the weather does.

I usually opt for natural fabrics but PIECE NYC’s timeless collection made with well-sourced technical fabrics has made me think twice.
The post Back To Black With PIECE NYC appeared first on Style&Minimalism.
I was away quite a bit this summer and I loved every minute. I’m so lucky to live in London but to travel is a dream. And, I appreciate London all the more for having left it. Early in the summer we spent a weekend in Lucca, Italy and shot this classic look whilst there. I’m always mixing blue shirts […]
There’s something about the village of Marsanne that I fell utterly in love with the first time we visited, over a year ago. We arrived at 11pm in the dark, stayed just one night and left the next morning after breakfast but I knew it was somewhere I wanted to spend more time. When we […]
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 […]
With Glastonbury at the weekend you know we’re well into festival season now. I’m wearing a few of my favourite festival pieces here; a parka, denim shorts and a shoulder bag that fits all my essentials. If you think you’re going to be lucky enough to see the sun then a camisole is a must too. This parka […]
There are a few things in my wardrobe that I continue to buy season after season, pieces that are good timeless basics. One of which is a blue and white stripe shirt and the other is a good pair of blue jeans. They’re two things I wear all the time and find great satisfaction in […]
I love catching the late afternoon light, it’s my favourite time to shoot, when you’re bathed in a warm glow. It makes both your skin and hair glow. With the weather improving by the day, I’m slowly peeling off the layers. There are no jumpers in this post, just a beautiful cream silk blouse from […]
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 […]
The closest I’ve come so far to the pyjama trend are these amazing wide-led trousers from Samsøe & Samsøe; they’re soft, loose and super comfy. Lots of friends have asked me my thoughts on the pyjama look, most have said that they don’t really get it, I’m still on the fence. I love a classic […]
In spring it’s so hard to know what to wear. I left the house yesterday in a black t-shirt, skinny jeans and mohair cardigan only to discover it was just a bit too chilly to be out without a coat. I often opt for layers when the weather is hard to read. I pick out […]
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. […]
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. […]
I love being in the mountains, I grew up skiing from a young age (I was first put on skis at three) and have always found the fresh air, sun (when it’s out), and all-day exercise makes me feel so good. Being in such beautiful surroundings also helps. I’ve been going to Val-d’Isère in France […]
I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting as regularly as usual. I’ve been on two trips, had London Fashion Week (LFW) and a broken hard-drive, all in the space of a month. I do, however, have lots of content to share with you. First up is my outfit for LFW Day 1, I went […]
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 […]
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 […]
Last week I had a lovely time hanging out at Winter Wonderland with Farfetch and some amazing bloggers (Abi, Camila, Ellie & Sarah). For those of you outside of London, Winter Wonderland is a Christmas Fair in London’s Hyde Park. There are lots of food stalls selling everything from candy floss to duck rolls, some […]

As I mentioned before, we stayed in a pretty cool chambre d’hotes in Provence. The main house was very special but equally so were the gardens. They were very well maintained and full of beautiful flowers, plants and trees. One of the pathways at Le Clos Marquise was lined on either side with green and […]
