How to Style Wide-Leg Trousers – plus video!

How to Style Wide-Leg Trousers – plus video!

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!

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? Dungarees are oft-seen as a uniform of millennial hipsters who adopted […]

Staycations at The Rectory Hotel

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 […]

Organising your Style with VVA by Sarah Haran

Organising your Style with VVA by Sarah Haran

It’s only as I get older that I want and need my handbag to be properly organised, ideally like a mobile desk-cum-dressing table. When I think about it, this is something I learnt from my sister-in-law who, when asked (and yes we have tested her) can recite what’s in each compartment of her handbag; it’s […]

The Clash of the Stripes on Stripes

The Clash of the Stripes on Stripes

I mean, to be honest, it’s a cheap post because stripes never go out of fashion and I really mean that; they’re a perennial trend that always work in some stripe or another. Do you love to stripe? Are you, like me, something of a striped hoarder? I have a stripe in every thickness, colour […]

Who, Where and What I Wore to London Fashion Week

Who, Where and What I Wore to London Fashion Week

The weather was so divine it genuinely felt appropriate to have the spring/ summer 2018 collections on the catwalk; the sun shone and London Fashion Week felt especially bright and exciting this season. Organising myself before London Fashion Week is oft very last minute and involves me scanning my wardrobe on the Thursday evening and […]

Full-On Folklore Florals

Full-On Folklore Florals

I always find it difficult to define my style when asked, a classic question being ‘describe your style in three words’ which is impossible with a wardrobe full of different personalities. There’s the minimalist who loves a white tee with Levis 501s and a blazer, often leaning on androgyny with some sort of heeled boot. […]

Azzi Glasser, The Perfumers Story and After Hours

Azzi Glasser, The Perfumers Story and After Hours

I have to be honest even though I’m ashamed to admit it, before I met Azzi Glasser this week I didn’t know her brand or story – The Perfumers Story. Azzi is a perfumer and the nose behind the most exquisite and unique fragrances, with her exclusive perfume After Hours launching in Harrods imminently. It’s […]

The Return of the Cardi’

The Return of the Cardi’

When I remember my Granny’s style I think of pleated tartan skirts, fine brooches and cardigans; she loved cardigans and I’ve inherited some of her signature pieces. I can’t romanticise why she loved them because I’m pretty sure it was because she liked to keep her hankies in the pockets – but she had a […]

Three friends, two babies and Dinny Hall’s ‘Pinkys’

Three friends, two babies and Dinny Hall’s ‘Pinkys’

What could be a sweeter way to spend a sunny afternoon (remember, before the torrential rain?) than sitting in Portobello Road’s Farm Girl eating chocolate cake with cashew lattes (yes, they’re a thing) with two of your closest friends? I met with Alice & Harriet for a catch-up and photoshoot with our friends at Dinny […]
