Something for the weekend: The Best Christmas Jumper Ever

This Christmas jumper is more than just a madly adorable collaboration between Tootsa MacGinty and illustrator Nadia Shireen. Buy it, and 100% of the profit goes to Refuge, helping women and children escape domestic violence and rebuild their lives. If that’s not the best reason ever to sport a festive jumper, we don’t know what is.…

Something (Pink) for the Weekend

I’m a little bit obsessed with this shoot. I love Sophia Coppola. I love the mood. I love this dress (the cover shoot was styled by Little Spree’s Sarah Clark. Why, yes, I do have a style crush on her…). I think it’s because I am feeling in the mood for pink.…

Something for the weekend

For someone who’s not the biggest sports fan, (what’s that you say? There’s something called the World Cup happening in Brazil?), I love tennis – and I really love Wimbledon. So in honour of the action in SW19, I give you an all-white weekend wishlist.…

From my dream J Crew swimsuit via the perfect Mango summer cover-up – and a Jamie Oliver fish stew. It’s a sweet, short weekend lust list from my Cornish holiday…

Something for the Weekend: Scandi Style part 2

So easy. So laidback. So effortless. I am hoping that the reality is that quite a lot of thought goes into that apparent insouciance, but having – in the cause of a post – spent some considerable time pouring over Stockholm Streestyle, I have come to the conclusion that Scandi girls tend to have the genes and the knack for dressing well.…

Something for the weekend: Spring dresses

Oh Spring. Oh joy for the return of simpler dressing. Instead of painstakingly co-ordinating (or not, as the case may be) an outfit, you skip out of bed, into the shower, and then fling on a frock. Oh frabjous day. Okay. so maybe you’re still adding a jumper, or a jacket; and yes, your legs might be a touch chilly first and last thing – but still, I maintain, one element of my life is about to get easier.…

What are you up to this weekend? After a few hectic weekends, we have ‘Not a great deal’ written on the agenda – aside from, I hope, hanging out all three of us together. We have plans to visit the lovely-sounding Sarah & Mary’s Home Boutique on Saturday morning – and if Sunday is as sunny as is rumoured, we’re going to throw a breakfast picnic in the car, grab the papers, and head to Richmond Park, followed by a visit to Ham House or Petersham Nurseries.  I love each season the most as it arrives – but Spring takes some beating when the days are warm and sunny, but the nights still chilly enough to warrant cosying up close.…

In tribute to Spring – which we feel has sprung, surely? I give a you daffodil-yellow-inspired WW. First up: adding a yellow accent to your home. I love the way it sings in a fairly simple monochromatic exterior. Fancy dipping your toe in the water? Try one of these……

Weekend Wishlist (lots of love)

Happy Valentine’s day. Yes, it’s commercialised, mawkish and celebrated by couples sitting awkwardly across from each other in restaurants full of other couples – all consuming an over-priced set menu. And yet…it’s about love – and I am all for more of that. So C and I have made messy, silly cards, and I have my fingers crossed that my husband might make it back through the wild weather (he is heading west today – eeps) in time to curl up on the sofa and chat. (It’s unlikely, I might have to seek solace in a cheesy romantic comedy which I couldn’t watch in his company. Heroically, he did sit through How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days not once but twice when I was very ill.)…

Now, it might not feel a great deal like Spring outside. (*Checks weather. Ascertains it is currently 5 degrees outside, with the threat of rain looming large.*) But you can fake it (inside, with the heating on) – as of now is, in my view, one of the best times of the year for flowers. Tulips, ranunculus, daffodils (available for £1 a bunch in pretty much every supermarket – I have them piled into jugs and vases all over the house), snowdrops bravely peeping their pretty little heads above bare soil, hyacinths… Head to Poppy & Peonies and Miss Pickering for styling inspiration.…
