Time to transition (praise be to the black turtleneck)

Corrr, I remember thinking gleefully when I stepped off the plane and back into British weather after our holiday, it's a bit chilly. Because having had a final hit of warm skin, sun dresses and ice cream galore, I was finally feeling ready to embrace Autumn with open arms; full of anticipation for bright, crisp days, rust-coloured… Continue reading Time to transition (praise be to the black turtleneck)

A mid-month catch up: September

Hello there one and all. This is the first in a new ‘regular’ post of sorts that I’m going to do – a monthly catch up, where I’m planning to just chat, diary style - the kind of everyday stuff that probably gets lost in other posts. It might be what I’m doing, what I’m… Continue reading A mid-month catch up: September

A very important list of the reasons that jumpsuits are fantastic

This is a sponsored post. Look, this might be a really frivolous topic, but a little bit of frivolity never hurt anyone so we’re going to talk about it anyway. I think – and I don’t say this lightly – that the jumpsuit may be the best item of clothing I've ever been introduced to.… Continue reading A very important list of the reasons that jumpsuits are fantastic

A summer occasionwear lookbook

One of my absolute favourite things about summer is the potential for occasionwear to make an appearance; I don’t go to a lot of occasions, whatever occasions actually are, but this is the season that I’m most likely to have weddings, Christenings or other events that require the kind of ‘dressing up’ that isn’t an… Continue reading A summer occasionwear lookbook

A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

The 'confession' I'm going to share today seems strange considering that 1) I spend a LOT of time on the internet, and 2) I post a shameful number of photos of myself loitering in the street to illustrate my outfits. Obviously I put it in the title (the clickbait was ridiculous with just the first… Continue reading A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

It was nearly 2am when I started this blog post, having intended to spend the entirety of the evening in question writing one. Not this one, actually, but another that I was yet to think of a subject for (so maybe this one? Who really knows) and never got around to doing. The reason? Admin.… Continue reading SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

Will this be the year I shake off summer dressing dread? (Spoiler: no, but let’s talk about it anyway)

My first denim skirt wearing session of the year lasted a grand total of about 90 minutes and exposed parts of my legs that hadn’t been exposed in a while to the people of Norwich. I spent the whole of said 90 minutes excruciatingly aware of this fact, pulling the stupid thing down every few… Continue reading Will this be the year I shake off summer dressing dread?

Look at my fucking yellow trousers, and other things about wearing bright colours

I’m sorry for the swear in the title, but not that sorry because you can blame the creator of the look at my fucking red trousers blog, which I always found to be tremendously amusing browsing material and couldn't help but reference. These aren’t red trousers, obviously, but they are very yellow. Fucking yellow, you… Continue reading Look at my fucking yellow trousers, and other things about wearing bright colours

I want to wear more stuff that feels special but doesn’t bankrupt me, so I’m starting with the little things

If I went through all of my clothes, shoes and accessories and wrote down where everything was from – I’m not saying I’m going to, but humour me – I reckon the result would be an embarrassingly short list. I’m a creature of habit and convenience when it comes to shopping and (excuse me while… Continue reading I want to wear more stuff that feels special but doesn’t bankrupt me, so I’m starting with the little things
