Orla

Written by Posted in Personal Style Comments 2

Another beautiful piece of clothing from Violet & Wren, the delicate and feminine Orla shorts. Once again, they have created a stylish but ridiculously comfortable piece. Paired with a soft cream top and structured blazer, to keep the outfit looking subtle. I absolutely love the Orla shorts, they’re perfect for a summer’s day.

Reiss

Written by Posted in Personal Style Comments 0

What’s the best thing to do when you’ve just been paid? Go to a sample sale! And a Reiss one at that! That’s exactly what I did last month, and I bagged myself these AMAZING Reiss trousers for less than a third of the normal retail price. One thing I will say though, it does take some patience and commitment at those things, people everywhere, clothes everywhere…but if you stick it out you can honestly find some absolute gems for such crazy prices. I picked up a couple of other bits while I was there too, which I’m sure you’ll

Fedora

Written by Posted in Personal Style Comments 6

What’s a better accessory in winter than a hat? A big floppy woollen hat, a fedora, beanies…you name it, they’ve got it! I’ve recently invested in a new fedora, and they may be on the masculine side with their structure, but hell are they chic! Whether your outfit be a loose/relaxed look, or clean-cut and tailored, this is the kind of hat that’s perfect for tying your style together. I suppose it’s good for your keeping your head warm too, if we’re being practical.

Cropped

Written by Posted in Personal Style Comments 9

It’s a good job that cropped tops & trousers are a big thing this summer, because I’m all over it. Even if you don’t have trousers already cropped, just rolling up the bottom of your jeans can completely change a look. I’m loving these trousers from Zara, with leather trims on the pockets & the pastel green is such a fresh colour. By pairing them with this white top, it keeps the outfit looking simple & feminine. To create an even chicer look, just add a sharp white blazer.

Lace

Written by Posted in Personal Style Comments 14

It’s been the most beautiful weekend, with bright blue skies & warm sunshine. So I spent my Sunday in the little village where I grew up, having a picnic with my sister and her fiancee…we obviously ended up in a pub garden afterwards though, how very British! I wanted to wear something feminine & delicate, but something that I wouldn’t be too hot and uncomfortable in…so that’s where this lace playsuit comes in. And I think it speaks for its pretty self.

Mono

Written by Posted in Personal Style Comments 21

I know it’s May now, and so all the bright colours should be coming out but I just can’t resist putting together a mono outfit. I love black, I love white and so what’s better than combining the two together? I just think it creates such a sharp chic look, and who can argue with that! On a little side note, I just want to say thank you to everyone who voted for me in the ‘Pastel Me Pretty’ competition on Stylefruits.com – I won the beautiful Marc Jacobs purse featured in this post & I couldn’t love it more! So

I’ve recently come across a jewellery brand called SENCE Copenhagen & after receiving a very special delivery last night, I can’t even explain how beautiful the jewellery is. I was lucky enough to choose 20 of my favourite pieces, and let me tell you, I spent ages trying to decide because I love it all! There is a range of delicate bracelets, rings, necklaces and on the other hand (literally if you like), there are chunkier statement pieces. In their new Spring/Summer collection you can find so many kinds of beautiful stones, from white jade to aquamarine and a mixture

Pretty Preppy

Written by Posted in Personal Style Comments 19

Yet again the weather has been more like Summer, let alone Spring…and I’m pretty sure it is technically still Winter time! But it was the perfect day to wear my favourite skirt with its subtle detailing. I decided to wear a navy jumper with it, to go for a pretty preppy look and it probably wasn’t the best idea because I definitely got too hot! Who’d have thought that in March?

Today has been the most beautiful Sunday, the sun has been shining all day & it’s been so warm. So, seeing as I have this one dress that I love to pieces and given the weather, I thought I would test if it was bare leg weather (which it definitely was!) and post about two ways to wear this little black dress.
