Clutching the Envelope

With the wintry seasons approaching and the cold setting in, it’s all going to be deep colours with dark leather and furs.  So why not add a little light to your wardrobe with a pastel envelope bag.  Perfect for day time or evening, these bags are lightweight and trendy and will break up all the wool and knit with a pop of creamy colour.   I love all the creams, ivories, muted pinks and (God forbid!) beiges on offer this season.  Here are a few of my favourites at the moment…

1.  Metal Corner Envelope Clutch Bag – £18 – ASOS.  2. Ted Baker Elder Studded Envelope Clutch Handbag – £89 – John Lewis.  3. Grey Pastel Envelope Clutch – £15.99 –  New Look.  4. ‘It’s time to start living the life you have always imagined’ Envelope Bag – £50 – ISWAI.  5. Johnny Loves Rosie Envelope Clutch Bag – £38 – ASOS.  6. Beige Asymmetric Zip Clutch Bag – £18 – River Island.  7. ‘You were all I could think about today’ Envelope Bag – £50 – ISWAI.  8. Faux Leather Diamante Skull Envelope Clutch Bag – £16.99 – Amazon.  9. Brown Geometric Panel Clutch Bag – £28 – River Island.  10. Faux Snake Front Clutch – £22 – Miss Selfridge.

Now wrap up warm and go open up to the cold when the postie brings one of these lovelies to your door.  Be warned, you might be enticed to step out into the really very brisk and chilly air to show it off!

Love,

Return of the Mac

This April has been especially wet and windy in the UK and unfortunately it looks like it’s not going away any time soon.  So I’ve been hunting down some lovely wet weather gear to keep us all warm and cosy when we have to venture outside.  With Mac’s this season, it’s all about camel, or if you want something darker then opt for navy or dark brown rather than black to stay on trend.  With wellies, either opt for texture, bright and bold block colours or go for something girly and floral.  Here are some of my favourites, all under £100…

Darling it’s better down where it’s wetter… Under the Sea.

One of the top trends this season is sea life.  And I don’t mean you should go out and drape yourselves in seaweed and wear fish as clothes, but take inspiration from the world under the waves.  Here are a few of my favourite bits and bobs to help you channel (see what I did there) the seaside theme this spring and summer.

1. Wallet with Sequins – £29.99 – Zara.  2. Tinkersmith Fish Charm Necklace – £30.00 – Topshop.  3. Flounder Green Sea Horse Flat  – £35.00 – Miss Selfridge. 4. Double side split maxi skirt – £37.00 – Miss Selfridge.  5. Premium Sequin pelmet skirt – Currently no price available – Topshop.  6. Turquoise style ‘starfish’ & Pearl gold matte ring – £7.00 – Avalaya.  7. Premium multi sequin vest – £40.00 – Topshop.  8. Cream Sequin Mini Skirt – Available at £60.00 from River Island or £45.00 from ASOS– you can choose which one to purchase, but I think we both know which one it’ll be!  9. Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Starfish Earrings – £6.00 – Tesco.  10.  Nails in ‘Gone Fishing’ – £5.00 – Topshop.  11. Grey Sequin Vest – £28.00 – River Island.  12. Rimmel 60 second nail polish in ‘Sky High’ – £3.69 – Boots.  13. Rimmel I love lasting finish nail polish in ‘Disco Ball’ – £2.99 – Boots.  14. Wood Anchor Pendant Necklace – £10.00 –  Topshop.

I hope this gives you some inspiration for the under the sea trend!

Love,

Put your best wedge forward

This season, wedges are the way.  Why try and walk in stilettos if it’s not easy?  Not only do wedges look great, they are also so much easier to walk in, while also elongating your pins.  These wedges will add instant pzazz to any outfit, day-time or night-time.  The key for this season is keep it strappy, keep it bold with prints or brights and keep it high.  Perfect with maxi dresses or mini dresses, or they will look great with a simple top and black leggings.

1. Worship my wedge in Coral – £60.00 – Office.  2. Steve Madden Multi Colour Peep Toe Boots – £74.99 – New Look.  3. Black caged wedges – £50.00 – River Island.  4. ALDO Rinks Floral Wedge Sandals – £65.00 – ASOS.  5. Fuchsia Feather Print Heel Wedges – £24.99 – New Look.  6. Orange caged Wedges – £50.00 – River Island.  7. Steve Madden Floral Aztec Print Wedges – £79.99 – New Look.  8. Bright Orange Floral Print Heel Wedges – £24.99 –  New Look.  9. Black wedge Sandals – £60.00 – River Island.

Even though I’m in love with all of these shoes, I will be sticking to flats, because I’m already far too tall, but for the rest of you, happy shoe shopping!!

Love,
