Shopping Edit: Earrings for A Spring Accessories Update

posted on: Wednesday, 25 April 2018

Rather than spending all your hard earned money on a brand new wardrobe this season, may I suggest an easier way to make your wardrobe look present day? Invest every penny in a few good dresses and the rest in accessories. Accessories are, if you buy them cautiously, the purchase that keeps on wearing. You should be able to hand beautiful accessories down to future generations. Yes, they should last that long. There are high street accessories I've had for decades and costume jewellery I've had passed down to me from my grandmother, that are still sitting in my wardrobe. Earrings, in particular, have the unique ability to completely transform an ensemble. Go big or go home, people. Here's a selection I'm loving this season, with something for every price point, from cash to credit!

Style Update: The Icon(ic) Dress

posted on: Tuesday, 24 April 2018

If you're a fan of Boden, you're already well versed in their high end Icons collection. It's been around for a few seasons now and it almost always sells out immediately. So, I'm one of the first in line when this collection drops. The materials are heaven, the cuts are always super chic and each and every piece is truly an heirloom addition to your closet. My first SS18 Icons outing was in Tuscany this week. I decided to wear the dress to a dinner party and it couldn't have been a more perfect match, for location and ease of wear. When you're sitting down for pasta, the last thing you want to worry about is a dress that's too tight. After all, you don't visit Italy to diet. You visit Italy to eat! So thank heavens this dress came with a bit of wiggle room or I would have been bursting at the seams.

The perfect shampoo and more for coloured hair

You guys know by now that there is only one salon in London that I trust, when it comes to colouring my hair. Josh Wood has sorted out my hair under every circumstance imaginable. And of course because I'm always trying new things, being a blogger and all, Josh Wood's team has had to save my bacon a few times due to complete hair disasters. Yes, I have strayed occasionally and each and every time I've regretted it. I will never see another, that's for sure, and my biggest wish has always been that I could give Josh Wood to everyone. He's one of the most in demand dudes in haircare and with good reason. Seeing as Josh can't be in everyone's home, around the world, every single day of the year, he's launched a collection that is the next best thing. And no, I'm not being paid to say this. I've been genuinely using and re-buying these products since Josh launched them two months ago. And I'm so happy to say that you can have Josh in your shower with you every morning. Ok, that sounds a bit strange. Scratch that. You can have Josh's products with you every morning in the shower, which is the next best thing. While there is an entire range of products, from colour to hair masks, I wanted to give you a quick run down of the four products I'm using in between visits to the salon, so that I can not only visit the salon a little less frequently, but also so that my hair is in tip top shape every time I visit. 

What I wore this week: Lace trench coats, off the shoulder dress and bodacious bombers

This week was a split personality style week with one foot in Carolina and other back in London. I'm writing now from Tuscany, so you can expect next week to feature a completely different location! But, I'm pleased to say every single outfit comes from a place where spring summer clothing is officially out in the wardrobe and ready to be worn! There are links to everything below and hopefully plenty of inspiration for the wardrobes you are putting together this week for any balmy weather ahead. As always, make sure you keep an eye on instagram for outfits day by day if you want to get a head start on picking up the items before they sell out! Have a great week, everybody!
