I hadn’t really shopped in River Island before this time last year when I popped into River Island’s Style Studio to meet their VIP manager, the lovely Giles, ahead of December’s Clothes Show. I went in to choose a few pieces to wear on stage, my go-to for this being standout, statement and often sparkly […]

It’s here, it’s December and ‘the most wonderful time of the year;’ the season of Prosecco, pigs in blankets and so many parties. When I think of Christmas parties I think of the fashion: shimmering metallics, jewel colours, velvet, chandelier earrings and sequins; sequins across everything from heels to trousers, clutch bags and tuxedos.

Five of my Favourite | Midi Dresses

I love wearing trousers (insert pun here;) my failsafe uniform is a great pair of jeans, tee, blazer and standout earrings but I have been swayed by this season’s midi dress.

Why is it that our summer wardrobes are often more feminine than our autumn? Why should our long, floaty, feminine dresses be worn exclusively on hot days and holidays? In a moment of boredom when I was raiding my wardrobe thinking I had nothing to wear, I rediscovered this pretty dress and realised it has […]

It’s a gradual cycle isn’t it, the way in which trends and specific pieces of clothing come and go, take wide-leg trousers which are back after the following: the return of shearling, seventies takes over the catwalks, mustard is the key colour to wear and then BAM – wide-legs have taken centre-stage. God I love […]

How to Style Dungarees – plus a video!

Yes really, how to style dungarees as an adult; no they’re not just for kids or the 1990s. I’ve personally loved dungarees since Christmas 1996 when my sister bought me a pair from Gap that were fleece-lined – can you imagine the cosy comfort?

Staycations at The Rectory Hotel

The first time I went away with my now-husband, it was a trip I/ we will never forget; ominous as that sounds. We had been seeing each other for six months and decided, as we are both October babies, to go away to the New Forest as a belated celebration. I delegated (all good leaders […]
