Winter Highlights



There a very few things good about winter IMO.  Except fur and leather (oh and Christmas obviously!) so I'm getting through these dark evenings shopping for furry gilets and scarves.

Eternal Chic


Barbara Martelo reminds us that if you keep it classic you can't go wrong.  A checked shirt, black skinnies, suede courts and a great blowdry never go out of style.

Hero Piece: Charlotte Simone


There's nothing better than a gorgeous furry scarf to luxe up a dull autumn/winter day.   Charlotte Simone's furry popsicle scarves are some of the best around, and this Harvey Nichols exclusive burgundy number is a definite winner.  Rich burgundy feels right again, non?

Whistles AW15



Whistles has long been a label to rely on for classic, high quality pieces you'll love forever.  The new season does not disappoint, and I'll be adding these pieces to my wish list for winter. Perfect for both work and play.

Paige Skirt, £110
Lotus Boot, £155

Please and Thank You

I don't often melt over a handbag (definitely more of a shoe girl) but ooooooh this bag!

Stuart Weitzman


Stuart Weitzman Highland boots are forever on my wishlist.  One day maybe...
An absolute dream with jeans, chunky knits and fur gilets.  Or sassy with a floaty little dress.  

Perhaps in the meantime I can be satisfied with Kurt Geiger's version (search Sammy) but I'm yet to be convinced on that one.

Hero Piece: Army Vest



So this army vest is dreamy isn't it! A perfect trans-seasonal piece for throwing over jeans or dresses.

If you haven't already, make sure you put LA based designer Anine Bing on your radar and be prepared to add every single piece of the collection to your wishlist.

Embrace the Luxe


Next in the series of 'reasons to embrace autumn style' comes the opportunity to revisit black on black - piling on luxe textures like leather, knits, wools and furry items.  

I'm definitely more of a summer fashion lover, but when it comes to autumn winter it's the luxe materials that get me through.

Autumn Style


It's almost time to hang up the bikini and put away summer dresses as autumn is just around the corner.  Sad I know, but Garance Dore's latest collaboration with Matches has given me hope.  Hope and a strong desire for that Elizabeth and James khaki cargo waistcoat. Dreamy!

Holiday Like Giorgia




Giorgia Tordini has long been one of my ultimate style and beauty muses.  The designer and creative consultant is Italian yet has the effortless style that you would normally identify with the French. Best of both, non? 

Her impeccable style clearly also extends to capturing holiday photos (and choosing holiday destinations) if her Instagram feed is anything to go by.  Pure beauty.

To 'live like Giorgia', check out The Coveteur's post on her beautiful New York home (yes, she even lives in New York - I told you she was super cool).

Work it

Looking for some workwear inspiration? Make like Olivia P with black tailoring and killer accessories and you really can't go wrong.  

Snakeskin, cage sandals, statement shades and a great blowdry - perfection.

OH YES Topshop




Topshop have long been a highstreet favourite of mine for shoes. 
But recently they've really upped their game.  

Not only did I find my perfect casual summer wedges that go with everything (WEEKDAY: so good in both black and nude) and perfect winter boots (HOURGLASS: also so good in both black and tan) but now check out these.

A perfect mix of classic with sass.  Search GERI and go forth and order... a true Hero Piece.

COS Love


So I'm super in love with my new skirt.  After much searching for my hero piece - with the perfect paper-bag gathered waist, a nod to utility style and the just-so shade of beige - I finally found it in COS this weekend.

I'll be styling it up with a white shirt a la Camille below as well as the eternal classic - stripes. Parfait!

(French) Style is Eternal





In celebration of the ever-chic French style, design powerhouse Yves Saint Laurent, and the new retrospective exhibition at The Bowes Museum, I've pulled together some looks around the Iconic Le Smoking jacket with Farfetch.  As French ladies know, a tailored blazer can be thrown on top of anything for instant chic.

Yves Saint Laurent embodies everything I love about French style - everything we love about the style of Emmanuelle Alt and the French Vogue editors - laidback polish and timeless quality basics that will last forever.  As the designer himself put it, 'fashion fades, style is eternal'.  

All items featured are Saint Laurent at Farfetch.
See more of my Saint Laurent picks over at Pinterest.

Leather Perfection


It's rare that I notice a handbag (definitely more of a shoe girl) but All Saints have a way with leather goods, and their new handbag collection is perfect. Think butter soft leather, classic colours and iconic shapes including the tote, satchel, hobo, clutch and shoulder bag.

Mulberry



I'm now weekend-away ready with this Mulberry tiger print holdall, 
snapped up at the Cheshire Oaks outlet store.

Beach Life


There are few sights more satisfying than a crystal clear beach, blue sky and golden sand.
Can't wait to return to this spot.

All Saints Stripes


You can't beat a classic stripe. And you can't beat a perfectly cut t-shirt.

All Saints delivers both with this Roey Bar Tee.  

Perfect with jeans or tucked into high waist skirts.  Just add some statement tortoiseshell sunglasses and you're summer ready.

The Button-Down


As our stylish friends, the French, know there's something oh-so-classic about a well fitted shirt. Classic, yet difficult to find.

The fabric needs to be just so - soft and wearable, yet not look crumpled after 20mins of wear. And the fit - relaxed yet not oversized.

Bar Cart










My future dream home will most certainly have an art-deco style gilded bar cart (why wouldn't it?) like this one from West Elm.

Yes

New In: Zara Blazer

There's something very satisfying (and delightfully guilt-free) about buying a wardrobe staple - something classic you know you'll wear for years.

For me, it's this white longline crepe blazer from Zara (here).  Perfect layered with a white vest and skinny leathers or jeans.

Where's summer?

Fed up of waiting for summer? Me too. Pinterest is a good place to go to dream of beaches, swimsuits and summer hair.

White Denim


I'm on the hunt for the perfect white jeans
Now if Topshop can go ahead and release a great pair I'll be forever grateful

Current Vibe


Alongside all things khaki, leather and suede, I'm starting to lean towards a more relaxed fit of denim for Spring.  Not quite 'boyfriend' denim, but the size-too-big skinny denim as perfected by our beloved French Vogue Editor Emmanuelle Alt and pals.

Perfect with a relaxed shirt and classic court shoes

Oh come on!

This jacket is a match made in heaven for a self-confessed Acne-aholic and lover of all things khaki.  Drool.

Perfect Leather

After spending some time searching for a new leather jacket, I knew I'd end up finding it in All Saints.  They always use the most beautiful butter soft leather and this style, the Balfern, is a classic biker design that I know I'll throw on over everything.

Can't Get Enough - Suede

These beauties are never coming off.  Thanks for being so great Zara.


Saturday, 4 April 2015

Perfect Partners


A combination of my favourite things - leather, lace up heels, snakeskin, khaki...

This outfit is pretty much head to toe Zara (of course!) with a little bit of Whistles thrown in with the white croc leather clutch.

Francais









As a lover of all things French, the brand Whistles and grey t-shirts, this was a no-brainer.
Love love love it.

It comes in other French slogans too if you want to get the set!
