The Best Jumpsuits For Spring And Summer

outfit links = jumpsuit / raffia bag / lemon pouch / shoes

This out is one of many I shot whilst in Lake Como with the girls and Mr and Mrs Smith. I have to say, it was a real "pat on the back" moment. I'm not sure what or how I expected this little blog to ever develop, but I certainly never thought I'd be staying in Napoleon's former home in Italy, on the most luxurious trip I've ever been on in my life. Any way, I used it as a proper base for some content and this was one of many outfits I shot, and it's one of my all time favourites.

How To Wear Leopard Print Without Looking Like Your Crazy Aunt

Before I start I think it might be worth me saying that I fully appreciate this isn't the most original of blog topics. I've seen tonnes of "how to wear animal prints" and similar posts and swore not to follow suit, but when I was looking at these images I couldn't think of a better summary - I'd never have dared to have worn this skirt a few years ago and its only through putting some effort into getting the surrounding basics right that I can actually feel comfortable in it. It's become one of my go-to "looks"  when I want to make an effort, but as I'll explain its through choosing what goes with the leopard print that gives it that "I woke up and din't think about it" kind of vibe.

The Best Maxi Dresses For Spring

Newer followers won't be as aware of my sunshine uniform. For about five days of every seven I live in maxi dresses with either flats, block heels or (if I can get away with it) trainers. I snapped these photos recently and rather than just fixate on the splendour of this Ganni dress (find it here if you fancy) I thought I'd do an edit of all the dresses that've been bookmarked so far in 2018. Lets go!

Before I launch into the round up I thought I'd tell you about my first experience buying with Moda Operandi. I'd seen the brand come up in other influencers' feeds but I'm always a bit shy to buy from a new website and also thought most of the stuff was super expensive and out of my price range. However, I've figured out what it's good for and how it's a bit different to other online premium-brand websites...

New Kicks From FitFlop

outfit links: shoes / trousers / bag / jacket / top (hair by Sassoon Salons)

Ok, so here's a collaboration that completely changed my view on a brand. FitFlop wasn't something I thought would be very "me." I had such a preconception in my mind (sparkly sandals, unflattering soles) that I'd completely overlooked ever buying them. When I was approached about working on this project I initially wasn't keen. Then I saw these trainers, and read up on their benefits...

Skiing With Oliver's Travels

Back in March I succumbed to Gus' requests and went skiing. It isn't a sport or a life choice I even considered until my twenties and I used to hold the opinion of, "Why on earth would you choose to go skiing over sitting on the beach with a cocktail?" Gus is huge fan and skiing was a big part of his upbringing so I have had to bite the bullet and book it.  I've skied a total of four times. I'm not a total beginner and I can get down the mountain, but I wouldn't give myself any points for style or etiquette. In fact I'd be running into the negative points style wise. 


I decided to invite a few friends as in the back of my head I thought "If I hate the skiing or if the weather is bad (hilarious given we ended up in the one resort in France with pretty much guaranteed good ski weather from November to April) we can all chill in the chalet and catch up." I'd spoken to friends who recommended Oliver's Travels before and got in touch to see what they'd suggest for a mixed ability, arguably late season, amenity needing group of people. They ever so kindly not only assisted hugely but offered us a chalet for three nights in return for this review. Have a read...
