Flowers and Bees

Olá! Bom dia!


My first blog post from my new home.  Yes!  My sister and I moved to Portugal last month.  A decision that was a long time coming…

Beautiful sunshine, delicious food and my favourite beaches… I cannot wait to share with you my idea’s this year.  A new home, a new venture……surely a new wardrobe?!

Time to step into Spring with the ultimate effortless but high impact shoe…the backless loafer.  Great to start airing those feet and welcoming some warmth.  I fell in love with these black leather bee detail loafer’s whilst shopping in Dubai last November…and have been dying to wear them.

Top-up the look with another season favourite… power frills, embroidery, ripped jeans and florals.  Kinda girly but not too much!


Tchau for now! I am off to enjoy the sunshine! x

Tassels
After a 'Jolly Holly' Christmas there is nothing quite like the fresh outdoors!
A crisp walk around Leeds Castle, pub lunch and a chance to get lost in the maze....

Still not that cold in the UK for December, it was amazing to see daffodils in full bloom!  Definitely a chance to layer-up but not too much.  

Feeling like Pocahontas in my new suede tassel boots, today's look was all about contrast.  Simple, fitted clothing pieces accompanied with loose, layered accessories.  Be careful not to overdo the fringing/tassels! The classic shape, knee-high suede riding boots really were a great investment which will never date.

Autumn
Leaves falling, temperatures cooling... it's time for Autumn layers!

One of my favourite warm pieces... the roll-neck under a pinafore dress and knee-high leather boots make Autumn season "easy-dressing".

Another layer?  Check out the Peacoat range on offer at Jack Wills.  I absolutely love the traditional, preppy British styles and patterns. Keeping with the "school-girl" chic look, I wore my Warmwell Peacoat in houndstooth.  Classically tailored with a traditional statement lapel, double breast and fur collar.

Making the most of a sunny Sunday morning I was lucky enough to have these photo's taken whilst enjoying a country walk around Knole Park. Home to over 350 wild deer and with over 1000 acres to roam, it reminded me how beautiful the Kent countryside really is!

Daniel Wellington
Timeless, classic ... a watch for any occasion!

Recent trends in watch design have seen a return to minimalism, with a choice of timepieces for both ladies and gentleman.  Thin, elegant, plain dials... Daniel Wellington specialises in offering interchangeable NATO colourful straps and genuine Italian leather straps.

The Classy Sheffield in rose gold, with exclusive Swarovski crystals is definitely one of my favourites!

Love a logo?!

I rarely find a t-shirt/jumper which I like the logo and the style.... until this black and white graphic H&M tee came along!  Spot On!  Teamed up with this Autumn's "sell-out" suede skirt, I mixed up the 70s street-style look. Just love suede.... great texture, super soft and comfy to wear!  

Never underestimating the small details.... I loaded on the accessories and worked a school-girl hairstyle.... keeping it fun!  Retro sunnies, Kiko "barbie" lippie, Orelia pineapple necklace, coral brogues and a Daniel Wellington watch!
