Floral Fancies

Just when the weather looks set for autumn and I start to post more "wintery" things, we have an absolute cracker of a long weekend! Seriously, I've just come back from a day on Hampstead Heath reading magazines, listening to podcasts and conjuring up projections for tonight's Game of Thrones (Little Finger's time must be up and I reckon a Cersei/Jaime split, no?). 

One "look" (I hate that word, but hey it works) you can't ignore is the whole red/white floral thing. I first caught on to it with this steal of a Boohoo shirt - my first item from the label - a few months ago and was staggered at the comments I got. Everyone loves it (which is good as ASOS have restocked it here). So when Finery (don't know Finery? Get to know Finery - and quickly - here) released their take on the trend, it was an immediate purchase.



How To Spend A Weekend In Paris

I spent last weekend in Paris for my Dad's 60th birthday. When we asked him what he most wanted to do to celebrate the occasion, spending time in the French capital with the family was the immediate answer. Paris is special for us all; we've spent a lot of time here together and some very poignant family moments have taken place there. From infamous tantrums storming across the Tuileries (me) to inhaling a creme brûlée in one (sister) it's all happened here. As we know the place pretty well, our weekend was full of visiting favourite haunts and discovering a few new places away from the obvious places. I wasn't planning on doing a post but when so many asked for tips and tricks via Instagram I thought I may as well. Pop the kettle on and have a read.

I've been trying to make a bit of an effort to "dress up" for work. It's easy when you work from home to live in jeans and Converses, but now things have progressed a bit (yay) and I'm in the City most of the time I felt really out of place and a bit scrappy. It's been the reverse of the challenge I had when  started the blog - when I worked in town and had no idea what to wear outside of the office... Lots of you on my Instagram have been asking for workwear advice, so I'm going to try and make time for some snaps during the week so I can share what I've found.
