Cosy Cardi

It’s my second favourite time of the year, Autumn (Spring is number 1!)  when the sun is shining and there is a crisp breeze. You can still wear dresses and skirts, but get to add light layer. A comfy cardigan or a brightly coloured pashmina are my top 2 options. It means you can also stretch your summer wardrobe out a little longer…

Super cute cardi option from ModCloth also with longer sleeves and low pockets

Have a lovely day all xoxox

 

 

 

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 🙂

 

Tiger & Silk

Tiger print jacket with turquoise silk lining! Totally over the top DIVA / gaudy

Sometimes one has to be totally over-the-top for an average day at work

Happy Diva Day

Brace Yourself

Finally! Braces! I have been looking for a pair since Summer

A rather fabulous friend spotted them in H&M (which I hadn’t considered checking!)

Simple black stretch with bronze clip detail. They come with silver too but doesn’t look as sharp

I got into a bit of a twist fastening the back clip, they have to be perfectly aligned otherwise it throws off the symmetry

Surprisingly comfy and takes an otherwise simple look up a notch

Tights

Tights solve a lot of problems with mixing summer clothes into autumn/winter wardrobes and extending ones looks

I have a ton of cute summer skirts that that can bridge into my Autumn style, by simply adding tights and boots

A string of pearls is never out of fashion and takes a simple, basic look, up a notch

Autumn

Autumn is finally kicking in and I am most likely the only person skipping happily down the road as a result.

Now I get to wear jackets, boots, tights, wool dresses……an entire new wardrobe is on my horizon!

And yes, in case you were wondering Robbie insisted I stand in front of this ‘cool retro’ bike for the shoot.
