Marie Chantal for Marks And Spencer

I have long been a huge fan of Marie Chantal- my children have had a few of their classic coats featuring Peter Pan collars, plus some gorgeous cashmere jumpers. Founded back in 2001 by Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, they offer truly beautiful children’s wear- very traditional and classic. It’s a luxury brand with the price tag to match which is why this collaboration is such

CHIC CASHMERE

Years ago cashmere was an unaffordable luxury, but now that the high street produces some great items at great prices it’s something that we can all tap into. A cashmere jumper is such an easy piece to wear at the weekends with your favourite jeans or you can dress it up with a pleated skirt. I love the feel

The Best Ankle Boots

I’m very slowly delving into my Autumn/Winter wardrobe, I’m still refusing to wear tights (!) but the trusty ankle boots are now out. They are one of the few genuine wardrobe staples and go with everything from jeans, bare legs and skirts to floaty peasant dresses. If your boot wardrobe is in need of an overhaul then check out my edit of

GOTHIC GLAM

One of the key trends for AW16 is Gothic Glam. Alexander McQueen, Rodarte and Blumarine all delivered dresses with melancholic, dark undertones. You don’t have to go full on with this look- a high neck sheer blouse is a great way to try the trend- pair with denim and eveningwear. Try anything in leather and

BEST DRESSED WITH LYST

As I write this, I’m sitting in a summer dress with the sun shining and its a gorgeous September day. But soon the Autumn chill will set in and get us all wanting to buy new season items. Every season I pull a wish list together and use the online shopping destination Lyst. It’s a bit like having

Mules

A mule is a love/hate shoe- a little like Marmite. The classic shoe shape from the 90s has made a return- either high heeled or as a flat. I tend to like them on other’s but not myself- until I tried on a pair the other day in Topshop- it was LOVE. But I was in a hurry to

Summer Bodies

No I’m not talking about ‘getting bikini ready’!!! I mean those 90’s bodies (if our old enough to remember). Well they are BACK and I must say I wasn’t 100% sure to begin with. But I found one in Topshop that I loved and its perfect for an evening look. In fact generally they are

Feeling Fruity

Fruity fashion is where it’s at in kidswear for summer. Mix and match a mouthwatering combination of pineapples, watermelons, and cherries for a look that’s almost good enough to eat.

Pyjama Tops

Right now I’m loving a bit of PJ top action, an easy-to-wear option and great for days when we don’t know what the weather is doing. Silky, easy-to-wear separates are a great desk-to-dinner option too. They work as well with a smart pair of trousers (I prefer a wide legged pair) as they do with jeans. Here are 6 of my favourite shirts…..

Summer Red Dresses

To be fair the way our summer is going I appreciate that you may NEVER get to wear a summer dress if you stay in this country! BUT if you are heading off somewhere warm and sunny (or there is a break in this awful weather) then why not try a red dress. I bought

Two Become One

The trend for matchy-matchy dressing or co-ords is going nowhere! It was a big hit last summer and is back again. Personally I am a big fan- It’s the clever way to do seperates and best of all, each piece can be worn alone, delivering multiple outfit options for the price of one. I’ve invested in two

Stripe T-Shirt Dress

Who doesn’t love a Breton stripe top! And now we’re into the summer (currently staring out of the window looking at rain-will we EVER get a summer in the UK?!?) why not try a striped dress. Exactly like the top its  effortless and such a versatile wardrobe addition. Team with trainers, sandals or sky high heels/wedges. Here’s my edit of

The Bikini Edit Copy

Bikini season is now upon us (Arrghhhh!!!). There are so many to choose from but in terms of trends the scallop edged style is definitely in Vogue- it was the most instagrammed bikini last year by Marysia but if that’s out of your price range try the Monsoon one I recommend. The crochet/1970’s is also a key look

Mum and Mini

This week it’s all about gingham. It’s a real favourite of mine- it always reminds me of classic 1950’s/1960’s glamourous films! But its back for this summer as a key trend (Check out my video here). For mum I’ve gone for an off the shoulder dress which can be dressed down with white trainers if you

Jazz Up Your Bedroom

Feel like giving your bedroom a new lease of life? A new set of bed sheets is one of the simplest, and effective changes you can make to your bedroom. A brightly patterned duvet cover can add colour to a plain room, and crisp white linens are the quickest way to make your bedroom feel like a five-star hotel. Interior

The Best Espadrilles

Though it has always been a classic, up until about two years ago, the espadrille was seen as a bit of a comedy shoe- with references to Miami Vice and the 1980’s. Now the espadrille is enjoying a new lease of life in leather and printed variations, alongside ribbons and pompoms. I tend to wear mine in place of trainers in the

Mum and Mini

This week it’s all about Mum and Son for the mini me look. Khaki is a key colour trend across women’s and kids and I’ve chosen a really laid back look for both of you. A boilersuit for Mum- so easy to throw on in the morning, and joggers for the boy. Stripes have been added

White Lace Tops

Nothing says summer like a white top, and the pretty white lace (or look-a-like) shirt/top is simple, perennially chic, and easy to wear. This style will smarten up your denim but will also look great with a pair of shorts or midi skirt. Perfect against tanned skin, this style will see you right through the season.

Orange Lipsticks

A bright red lip will always have a place in my heart (and make-up bag) but as we head into summer I love a zesty orange hue. It looks fun and great with a tan and believe it or not does work on most people! Much like picking the right red lipstick- its all about your

Get Shirty

Oh how I love a shirt dress- they are timeless and one of those pieces you can pull out of the wardrobe when you really don’t know what else to wear. They are great for the office but also work for the weekends and holidays- try pairing with white trainers or slides. Totally versatile, this is one wardrobe staple you

In The Shade

A good pair of sunglasses is the perfect accessory- not just for the warmer months but any time of the year. They can add the finishing touch to your look and don’t need to cost the earth.  Here are some of my favourites around…

Sportswear Edit

It’s at this time of the year when we are starting to expose more flesh and think about those summer holidays. Maybe you’ve been hard at the exercise routine since January or maybe the thought of donning that cossie now has you in a mad panic and hitting the gym hard! Which ever camp you

Mum and Mini

This week’s Mum and Mini look is all about the bomber jacket in white lace. Not the most practical colour for adults or kids but it looks great! It really can be dressed up or down- for this post I’ve just teamed with casual jeans and trainers. Mum- Bomber £39.99 Zara   Jeans £80 Lee at

Boho Dresses

OK so for a short while we were lured into believing that the great British weather was finally on the way up…..how wrong we were! Today as I write this, the rain is pitter patter on my window. But dammit I still feel summery- or shall I say- in need of making sure I have my summer dresses

I’m having a total boho/holiday feeling at the moment. My instagram feed constantly flashes up with Vilshenko/ March 11 and Vita Kin fabulous blouses and dresses, and its a look I love. A few weeks ago on my round of press day’s I went along to Caramel’s who now not only make amazing clothes for the kids but have

Brush Strokes

  One of the kids micro trends at the moment is clothes and accessories featuring paint splattered or art inspired prints. Stella McCartney has channelled the paint splatter look (which has filtered down to the high street). But one of my favourites is the SS16 collection by Spanish brand Bobo Choses. The collection called ‘Der Blaue Reiter’ takes

We are totally tropical this week! There is an abundance of leaf print’s around on everything from clothes to accessories and even homewares.

Plus they have just taken on board the prestigious brand Ovale which offers the most gorgeous baby gifts and christening presents including personalised works of art. I caught

SPRING BIKERS

  Anyone else fed up with this weather? Spring sunshine one minute, overcast, rain and cold the next. We can have several seasons in one day but if like me you are sick of your winter coat on those cooler days why not upgrade to a leather or suede biker jacket in a pretty hue?

Mum and Mini

This week’s Mini Me Monday outfit features a black summer dress and tie up pom pom sandals. This would make a great holiday outfit (very Italian/Dolce and Gabbana) or once the weather heats up here in good old blighty- perfect for an evening out.

GREEN GODDESS

Ohh la la!!! I’ve come over all Parisienne for this week’s Mum and Mini post. I love stripes at any time of the year (Just check out my instagram feed!). They always look chic and are my go-to when I’m not sure what to wear. But especially in spring time I adore the combination of
