Sunrise to Sunset… in a little black dress

If you only buy one thing this season then you will need it to work hard for you and I am championing the little black dress. Choose it boxy, easy to wear and with delicate thin straps. This little number will take you from sunrise to sunset without a moments hesitation. Pair with loafers, biker boots or trainers for day, and slip a breton or little t-shirt underneath for true nineties nostalgia. For sunset go without anything underneath… fancy adding some glamour – throw on a pair of heels and you have a simple chic cocktail dress.

The Sunday Edit: Style Inspo

After missing last week’s Sunday inspo edit (sorry) I wanted to make this weeks a double dosage of gorgeous style inspo. So having trawled Pinterest and stalked the most stylish ladies on Instagram here goes… I hope it helps inspire you for the week ahead.

Make the most of what you have. Enjoy what you have. Cherish what you have. And work hard for what you’re soon to have.

The Shopping Edit: Summer Time

It’s the weekend again hoorah! And this week I made a purchase which I never feel guilty about… we booked a holiday. I am crazy excited about it as it seems like the entire Instagram nation has been lounging on a beach the past few months as I have been wrapped up in multiple layers with nothing but my trusty bottle of fake tan to give me that Summer sun feel…

The Wardrobe Edit: Bomber Jackets

I didn’t think I was a bomber kinda girl but last night I caved and ordered one online… I have tried on several over the past few months, embroidered, nineties style, black, khaki, satin, pink… but kept handing them back to the assistants and walking away … but pondering them still as I left.

Like most of my bad shopping habits I blame Instagram! They just look so great on everyone else the urge to grab some of that nineties nonchalance is too much.

The Shopping Edit: Updating My Basics

This week I have kept it pretty simple by updating my wardrobe basics. Anyone that follows my Instagram will know a week cannot pass without me wearing a breton stripe, so I introduced two new striped tops this week, a Summer t-shirt and a long sleeved version but with an interesting neck detail. The t-shirt isn’t online, its H&M but I’ll snap it next week and share it on IG.

I have included the long sleeved purchase details below as well as a couple of other buys I managed to sneak in….

The Style Edit: Back to Basic

‘With good basics you’ll have endless options…’

Like anything in life if you have solid foundations you’re set for success. From season to season, whether you have £20, £200 or £2000 to splurge, by already having your basics nailed you can just layer on the trend pieces or simply the pieces that you fall in love with that season, and you’re good to go. But as simple as it sounds, getting the basics right isn’t easy.

So as I attempt to nail them myself I wanted to share my shopping journey and if it can help anyone else – fabulous.
