I have had these Mankind Flares for nearly 7 years. Even though my body shape has changed and these trusty strides are more faded and tattered, I love them even more. Like a good friend that never lets you down.

And here I am, working on my smile ūüôā

Black Vest – H&M. Jacket – Zara. Jeans – 7ForAllMankind. Polka dot flats – Trenery. If you are tall, you can pull off this slightly looser high-waist fit, but if you are a shorty-pants, I recommend a tighter waist and thigh area to make sure you don’t look like you are walking in a denim sack.

Ballet Flats

I am always on the scout for cute ballet flats. These classic black ones were a gift and SO well-received¬†because, for some reason, brands always add ‘stuff’ like bows, studs & buckles. And I couldn’t resist these amazing polka dot ones.

Back to Brunette

After 6 months of having more fun as a blond, I have gone back to my roots, literally. What do you think?

Spending 3 luxurious hours in my local Toni & Guy allowed me some precious Vogue reading. I simply adore these two casual looks (Jen and Gerard Darel styling) Both are making me re-consider navy blue.

Also, how awesome is the new¬†GHD¬†hairdryer? I simply have to get myself one of these beauties (check out that nozzle!!) 2,100 watts, ionic technology and a 3¬†meter¬†cable (don’t you just LOVE being able to waft around your bedroom!)

Monday Accessories

Happy Monday all! Hmmm maybe not that happy, especially as I barely had any time to shop this weekend because I was too busy lying on my couch watching ‘Breaking Bad

I did some home surfing though, and found a rather fabulous site called Frames by¬†Warby Parker which has the most gorg glasses. I especially love the Ainsworth Walnut Tortoise ones which would work wonderfully with this outfit. Also love the bright Marshall Rum Cherry ones……want a different pair for every day of the week!

Dots ‘n Denim

It’s one of those mornings where I just need to feel comfortable. But not too casual. Enter dots, denim and bling flats. I want to be on holiday under a shaded terrace, sipping sparking Perrier as the bored, slightly handsome, waiter leans¬†against¬†a red doorway, staring dreamily into space. Instead i’m in an air-conditioned office, but the point is, inspiration comes from anywhere, and fashion can transport you.
