Style File: Marisa Horden, founder of Missoma – and exclusive 15% discount

Having only discovered Missoma relatively recently (I know! What on earth have I been doing with my time?) I am now a big fan of this contemporary jewellery brand. Subtly chic, yet with an edge, Missoma's designs are just what I want to wear right now. Pave studs in cool little designs, necklaces designed to be layered and bracelets made to be stacked are all a very modern way of dressing. And so, I was intrigued to find out more about founder Marisa Horden. We know what she loves jewellery-wise, but what about clothes? Here she talks style, beauty and her view on what jewellery we'll all want to be wearing in 2017. PLUS we have an exclusive 15% discount for W&W readers...…

Win Instagram’s favourite black lace blouse

Last autumn everyone was raving about this white lace Victoriana blouse from Monsoon. Well, now it’s back. In black. And I think, almost better than the very chic original. If you’re on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen it on some of the most stylish feeds, and may well be lusting after it like some kind of fashion-hungry hyena (it looks so much better on a person than in this picture). Well, fret no more as we have one aforementioned blouse up for grabs. Head on over to our Instagram feed (@wearandwhere) to enter. Oh and if neither black nor white do it for you, it’s also available in a very Spring-like pink! Good luck!…

The Valentine’s Line-up

As much as I love flowers, chocolates and professions of love, like Alex, I’m not a mad keen fan of Valentine’s – I prefer a more spontaneous gesture of affection. And yet, and yet… I do find it hard to resist a present. Particularly if it’s pink, pretty or gorgeously scented.…

Our call was answered! A new Hush ‘Love’ sweatshirt in grey….

You know how you sometimes just wish that a brand would bring something back, but maybe in a new, different colour that really suits you? Well, strike me down with a fashion feather, it's just happened. Only last Friday I was putting together my post on stylish Valentine's sweaters and mentioned on Instagram how I wished Hush would bring back their gorgeous love jumper, but in grey. And Ta Dah! They have! A grey, sweatshirt version of their black hit last season. Obvs. nothing to do with me, but still, they did it! Something of a result don't you think? Pair with jeans or a midi skirt and an instant weekend/school run/relaxed date night outfit is yours....…

Win! A weekend in Hay-on-Wye for 6 people

Is there anything better than a weekend away with friends? We, think not, which is why we are bouncing around like puppies at the thought of this prize. Thanks to Sugar & Loaf (whose handpicked collection of luxury cottages in Wales will have you hankering for a holiday), we have a weekend in Hay-on-Wye for you and your family or 5 friends (yes, 6 people in total!) up for grabs - and you can even bring your dog. This chic little town on the Welsh borders is home to arguably the UK's most famous literary festival and is also one of the prettiest places in the country. And the cottage? Think wood floors, a country kitchen and pure rural perfection...…

Valentine’s Day: Wear your heart on your sleeve

First things first. I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. I'm quite *possibly* not the most romantic person in the world (possibly? laughs The Husband who *probably* would agree). And, I'm really not someone who likes a lot of fuss (unless it's for someone else and then Bring On The Dancing Horses). So 14th February, other than having a nice ring to it and being a good excuse to open a bottle of champagne (not that I need an excuse) isn't highlighted on my calendar circled with love hearts. But! I'm not made of stone. I wouldn't steal Cupid's bow and snap it in half. I just like to do things my way, which could entail wearing one of these lust-worthy sweaters, (although quite possibly on any day except Valentine's Day.....…
