Pumped up kicks

Pumped up kicks

If there’s one thing that can cheer up a drab autumn day, it’s a spangly pair of silver kicks. Nothing better than seeing everything you pass reflected in your own footwear, hey? Even better if they cost you less than the price of a glass of pinot. In another outfit that may as well be sponsored by Primark, it’s all(…)

* END OF SUMMER KLAXON *

* END OF SUMMER KLAXON *

Girls, the time has come. Those carefree, cider drinking, leg baring summer days are coming to an end, and a long stretch of wooly tights and winter coats awaits us. During the crossover, transitional dressing can be tricky to master. Is it too early to break out next season’s jacket? Do you sweat on the tube in your autumn gear(…)

Brooklyn Coffee

Living in East London, I appreciate how spoilt for choice I am when it comes to amazing places to eat and drink. Whether it’s breakfast burritos, gargantuan burgers or the big daddy of all rice paper rolls that takes your fancy, chances are there’s a pop up nearby serving just the thing you crave. In an area(…)

Workwear hero: the kimono

Workwear hero: the kimono

2014 has officially been the summer of the kimono. Silk, floral, tasselled, long-sleeved, short-sleeved, boho, sleek – you name it, there’s a high street store selling it. Not content with a single season of kimono-love, it also looks like they’re here to stay for AW14 too. I’ve spied a couple of brands working them into their(…)

The other side

I know, I know, it’s been six months. No writing, no photography – hell, not even a tweet plugging an old post. Does it help if I say that I missed it? That not writing and not posting made me feel like I was neglecting an old friend, an acute feeling in the back of my(…)

Here’s to an organised 2014

I imagine I’m not alone, but between working full time, blogging, getting to the gym, seeing friends, and (most importantly) sleeping, I can honestly say there are never enough hours in the day. As much as I try to keep evenings free for impromptu plans and aim not to schedule my weekends with military precision,(…)

Primark SS14 January Drop

Primark SS14 January Drop

Every item here is under £20. I repeat, £20 and under. Yes, really. It can only mean one thing – the latest drop from Primark, with the first of the SS14 collection hitting stores this month. Each drop is awaited with much anticipation (from myself, at least) and seems to be well documented in fashion(…)

Top: Topshop | Skirt: Topshop (similar here) | Watch: Michael Kors | Bag: Mulberry | Boots: Topshop   The first thing that struck me when I came to edit these photos was that I really need some sun/fake tan. Oh the perils of having white bed sheets and a boyfriend who’d rather I didn’t sleep(…)

Brightening up the bleak midwinter with Coast

Brightening up the bleak midwinter with Coast

I don’t know whether it’s just me, but the second Christmas and New Year are done and dusted I become incredibly impatient for spring – warmer days and lighter evenings can’t come soon enough as far as I’m concerned. In order to inject a little of the spring/summer collections into my winter wardrobe each year,(…)

Camel coat and leather trousers

First things first – Happy New Year! I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to the year, and now that the hangovers are starting to subside, can begin to appreciate the fresh start and new opportunities that 2014 brings with it! 2013 was an interesting year for me to say the least – there(…)
