Summer Greens

Although this dress isn’t new, I am inspired by green today. Green for summer and freshly cut grass. Green for pistachio ice cream and crunchy apples. Green for leaves & Kermit the Frog. Happy Friday all 🙂

Pearl necklace, knotted for chic granny effect 😉 Accessorize Nails OPI (‘Mod about You’) Hair – Kerastase Nutritive

Coco

I just finished reading Coco Chanel’s biography and am totally obsessed with her simple and chic style (and life story, did you know she was friends with Salvador Dali and Winston Churchill!?amaze balls) She was my Fashspiration for this shoot.

Wide-leg, low-rise white trousers – custom tailor (similar). Pink heels – Nine West Caress. Striped Vest – Trenery. Pearls & clutch – Accessorise – real deal here

I extended the look for a casual lunch with my husband but swapping the trousers for shorts and a green satchel bag. (Bag – Jaspal. Shorts – Zara similar) Nails OPI

A Shirt Over a Dress

Today I am flying to sunny Cape Town, South Africa! I promise to blog as often as I can, but will be back in full swing mid January. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year all!! And thanks for following my blog, I just passed 25,000 views since I started, which was my target by year end xxx Whooppeeeee

Grey Blazer & Mini

This look was first inspired by Kristen Wiig  in ‘Bridesmaids’ – did you notice all her adorable mini dresses teemed with cool blazers? I found this awesome site called ‘Budget Babe‘ with an entire section dedicated to her blazer fashion. Strangely I hadn’t really considered this delightful combo before and it has changed my wardrobe range massively.

Straight Cut Red Dress

A red dress never goes out of fashion. They make me think of Valentino and act like Jackie O on a breezy terrace. Especially when you add a string of pearls or two. A simple A-line frock is perfect for weekends or a casual day at the office, and I love the pleated neckline on this one.

Dress – Mango (colours: black, electric blue, pink). Diamante flats – Aldo, similar. Bracelet – jade from Burma (bought in Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai) Pearls – Accessorize (one day I will have the real thing!!)
