Pastels for Spring? Groundbreaking (but Gorgeous)

Dare I say it? The weather has been positively (comparatively) balmy of late. There's blossom on the trees. I've bared my ankles for three days on the trot. Spring is coming and it heralds a wardrobe (and home) shift. I am sliding away from darks and into the light joyfulness of pastel hues.…

Why a dress + trainers is the no-brainer way to easy spring style

I'm taking a wild stab in the dark here, but i'm guessing we're all done with socks, tights and dressing for winter. What we want, nay need, in our lives is spring weather, bare legs and something easy, stylish to throw on. Which is why I'm happy that the season of midi dresses and trainers is almost among us....…

Lilac. Let’s Discuss.

Lilac. Discuss. I have mentioned before that Alex and I are on either side of the divide when it comes to this particular shade. Last time we were together, we saw a lilac coat. I cooed. She visibly shuddered. Which leads to me think that it may be a marmite shade.…

Be my (very stylish) Valentine

As January limps to a close, our thoughts turn to the new month - and its romantic heart: Valentine's Day. Red roses, hearts, the satisfying thud of cards on the doormat, gazing into your lover's eyes by candlelight... Or, in our cases, a night in with a meal we didn't have to cook and a night out with girlfriends #winning.…

Hush, Whistles, Me + Em, Boden…..The new spring collections have landed!

Bored of your winter wardrobe? Ready for the new season? Well, join the club. With payday just around the corner, we are very excited that new season collections from the likes of Hush, Me + Em, Whistles and Boden are starting to drop….. Ok, so don’t get too excited as it is early days and these aren’t the main collections with the killer pieces. Brands are bringing out what they call ‘pre-collections’ or what we call the early bits of spring/summer. There are a lot of staples, a lot of wardrobe cornerstones and a few pieces that you’d do well to nab now before they sell out…. Hush is a Wear & Where favourite. Easy, flattering every day wear with a few ‘wow’ gems thrown in, the arrival of a new collection is always a tick in our books. Isn’t this jumper (above) gorgeous? Embroidered with flowers, it’s the very definition of spring. And, very wearable too. I tried this pink sweatshirt on in John Lewis and really liked it, the puff sleeves and the hue are really fab. And, is it any surprise that Hush have brought back their classic ‘Love’ jumper? This dress (above) is so cute and such an easy throw on…

Shopping the sales: Fashion

The first rule of 'shopping the sales club' is don't talk about 'shopping the sales club' (at least not to your bank manager), the second rule of 'shopping the sales club' is to look for items with longevity. Forget about those on trend pieces that are nearly out-of-fashion and think long-term. Cashmere jumpers, statement skirts, swimming costumes, fab shoes, a quality coat etc are all great buys. Think about what makes your heart sing and will continue to make your heart sing for years to come and (hopefully) you won't regret it.....…
