Who else is obsessed with the French Riviera style? I love the dark blues, stripy off the shoulder dresses, straw hats, and big sunglasses. The style is sophisticated and effortless. I have collated a few things from the high street to give you an idea. You don’t really need to get a ticket to Saint Tropez but you can at least look french chic wherever you are.
This is my contribution to the polka dot trend, this dressing gown from H&M home. I didn’t anticipate purchasing one when I went in for a browse but it feels incredibly soft I had to have it.
The weather was gorgeous in London today – the sunshine came!
After purchasing a straw basket bag today, I am a little obsessed with this summer trend. I have put together a few I have seen online, they are all divine for this warm weather and it’s hard to dislike them. Take it to the park, supermarket or a nice brunch with the girls in the sunshine, a versatile look for Spring/Summer.

I walked past this tree today and had to take a snap. Very beautiful against the greens. Please may I have one in my bedroom?
With an umbrella, raincoat and knitwear still attached to me from December I think we can all say we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring.
I’ve started my spring cleaning for my wardrobe, this means selling items I don’t wear on eBay and use the money in my Paypal account to buy new things for Spring/Summer. I also started tidying up my jewellery and realised I hardly wear any Jewellery in the cold months. I’ve missed them and can’t wait for the weather to warm up. Roll on spring …
For me the most exciting time of year is spring. My winter wardrobe is dismal, I might be subconsciously sabotaging it as I hate jumpers, cardies, coats, scarves, tights, everything associated to keeping myself warm. The bulkiness, the claustrophobia of piling on layers and layers and still being bloody cold annoys me. Warm weather and I come alive, I feel my styling goes up a notch which is a bonus.
With Spring approaching, I sometimes get into a panic, I check the weather it’s 14 degrees does it mean a jacket will do, should I still wear my wooly jumper, is it time to ditch the thermal heat tech from Uniqglo ? The answer is I don’t know, hence the panic.
One look I particularly like is the skirt/dress jumper combo. Fits perfectly for spinter ( winter /spring ) you can pop on some tights and a jacket which are easily removal if it gets too warm. Alexa Chung has this down perfectly.
I won’t fret, spring will actually be here soon properly and I can drop the bulk and love my wardrobe again.
