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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
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 […]
Val-d’Isère was the perfect place to test out Ille De Coco‘s wonderful warm knits. Their roll-neck tunic, made with soft merino wool, kept every bit of me warm and cosy. There was no need for a scarf as the roll-neck comes up high and is quite a snug fit around the neck. I really love […]
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 […]

The best Christmas presents for a lover of minimalist style I decided to combine my Christmas wish list and gift guide this year as I never give anyone a gift that I wouldn’t be thrilled to receive myself. I’ve included all sorts of amazing things; there’s beautiful jewellery by London designer Jenny Sweetnam; a few […]

I’ve worked in the fashion industry for many years and have been backstage at lots of fashion shows but I’ve never had the chance to be present at a studio shoot; it’s something I’ve always been interested to see. So as you can imagine, I was very excited to be asked by ME+EM to join […]
