31.07.2012- What I Wore Today #38

Whilst it takes a lot to pry me away from my beloved Topshop Kristen jeans, show me a pretty dress and I'll happily ditch the denim. Since the beginning of the year, I've made much more of an effort only to buy things if I really like them, and if I'm confident that I'll get lo…

30.07.2012- What I Wore Today #37

Hello! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Safe to say I've been absorbed in Olympic fever since Friday, after being completely overwhelmed by the Opening Ceremony (I'm hoping to pop a review of it up here in the next few days or so), and am rapidly developing a new found love for a lot of…

26.07.2012- What I Wore Today #35

Another lovely day! Whilst it's lovely to see that summer has finally started, I'm finding it very tricky to find things in my wardrobe which are both weather and work appropriate...suffice it to say that most of my holiday clothes are much more suitable for the beach! Keeping cool whilst c…

25.07.2011- What I Wore On Holiday #4

Looking back at my holiday pictures is making me wish I had a beach in my back garden, especially in this weather! Whilst I spent most of the time I was away in various combinations of shorts and a t-shirt, on a few occasions I had the chance to get a little bit more dressed up- here's a look a…

24.07.2012- What I Wore Today #34

Well, I don't want to tempt fate, but it seems like the summer has finally arrived! Typically, however, my holiday tan has almost entirely vanished, but I'm hoping to spend some time enjoying the sunshine while it lasts, so hopefully I can coax my skin back to a less ghostly shade by the ti…

23.07.2012- What I Wore On Holiday #3

As much as I love sitting on the beach with a good book when I'm away, sometimes it's nice to have a break and do something different. So, midway through the first week I was away, I went on a walk into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. I vaguely remembered following a real…

22.07.2012- What I Wore On Holiday #2

As I mentioned in this post, I've got a staple collection of swimwear which I tend to stick to when I go away- pieces I've picked up here and there which I know are beach fail-safes. This year, I searched high and low for some new swimwear to take away with me, but really struggled to find …

20.07.2012- What I Wore Today #33

Tan alert! It's very unusual that I'm anything other than ghostly pale in outfit posts, so I'm quite enjoying being a little bit tanned after coming back from my holiday! I have a feeling that I'll be back to my normal pasty self within a matter of days, but for the time being I'…

19.07.2012- What I Wore On Holiday #1

So I'm back from my holiday! I had a lovely time, read plenty of books and did lots of swimming (as well as a mountain hike...but more on that to come!) I'm working on a post of some holiday photos to show you what I got up to, but I thought I'd also put together a series of outfit post…

17.07.2012- London Love Letters

2012 is shaping up to be a pretty spectacular year for London. After the patriotic pomp of the Jubilee last month, and with the Olympics and Paralympics just weeks away, the city is really coming alive (with the world watching!) In celebration of London taking centre stage this summer, those canny …

11.07.2012- Fashion Week Top Five: Paris AW12/13

As ever with fashion month, all roads lead to Paris. Arguably the most anticipated of the four fashion weeks, for me the designers who exhibit in the French capital cater to an inherent sense of style, rather than the bold trendsetting and vision of London Fashion Week or the prolific commercialism…

09.07.2012- Life's a Beach: Seaside Style Inspiration

However much you might anticipate hitting the beach when you go away on holiday, it's more often than not a ritual which is filled with a considerable amount of panic beforehand. I don't know about you, but I really struggle to find beachwear which is both flattering and practical, and, des…

06.07.2012- Label Love: Sister Jane

I've featured Sister Jane in a couple of outfit posts over the last few months, so it seems like high time that I take a closer look at and introduce you to one of my favourite new fashion discoveries. The label takes its name from style icons Jane Birkin, Jane Fonda and Janis Joplin, and offer…

04.07.2012- Fashion Week Top Five: Milan AW12/13

This post has been a very long time in coming, but in a way I think it's nice to split these fashion week retrospectives up a little bit- for me it's also a great way to refresh my memory before the new season styles start to hit the shops! Milan AW12/13 was all about eveningwear, class, de…

01.07.2012- My Month In Pictures: June

Fingers crossed, by the time you read this (and if the scheduling works!), I should have arrived at my holiday destination! I can't quite believe it's come around so quickly, and it's two years since I last went away so I'm hoping to make the most of having some time to relax on the…
