Rainy Summer

It has been raining non-stop for four days and nights in Shanghai, and it’s supposed to be summer!!! arrgg Keeping hair smooth is becoming a total nightmare!

Keeping it simple – denim shirt, stripy mini & booties

Oh and I need a tan! I feel a trip to Thailand coming on ūüôā


Simply & Cosy

Morning All!

A super-short mini is only OK with thick tights

Add a simple pendant to bling up an otherwise simple look

Woolly Tights

One of my favourite things about cold weather (other than hot baths and steaming pasta) is getting to wear thick tights

I love these grey knit ones. Super soft and thick enough to keep the chill out. H&M

Add a simple long jacket, ideally the same length as your skirt (local Shanghai designer) and knee high boots (M&S)

Leather & Dots

My two favourite Friday looks – ready to go for drinks after work! Apologies for own-photo-taking but my husband/photographer is out of town on business, so we have to settle for an Iphone-mirror-body-shot.

Stripes and Colour

I love how the naughty luminous tangerine is peeking out from underneath this little jacket, like it has an attitude of its own.

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. –¬†Cecil Beaton
