Style Star: Miranda Kerr



Miranda Kerr's effortlessly chic daytime looks never fail to inspire me. I love how she has taken this statement pair of floral pants and made them look so easy to wear, simply by pairing them with a casual top! She looks comfortable, smart and on-trend - all at the same time!

This look is perfect inspiration for this week's Friday's Fancies, where {av} has challenged us to style up a look based on the simple t-shirt. I can't wait! Join in the fun over at Long Distance Loving this Friday.

Capsule Collection..

Good Morning! 
It's a very happy Monday, as I'm on the final countdown to my holidays! I tried to make a start on the much dreaded task of packing this weekend - I always bring too much and end up not wearing half of it! So this year, I've set myself a challenge to plan my looks around key pieces, mixing them up with accessories and alternating colours.

I love making lists so I've created this visual guide to help me out during the week :)

Friday's Fancies:Citrus Fresh


For this week's 'Summer Refreshment' Friday's Fancies, I've gone for my favourite summer combination of citrus hues! This DVF dress would be perfect for sipping zesty cocktails on a summer evening! And while I'm on the subject of sunshine, it has finally arrived here - so I'm off out to make the most of it for the day!

Happy Friday!

Hamptons Style...

I'm a little bit late to the party, but Revenge is my newest favourite TV show! From the dramatic story line through to the gorgeous Hamptons houses and the fabulous fashion, it's addictive viewing! I've caught up on the entire first series online, so while I wait patiently for season two to begin, I'll be busy dreaming of gorgeous Hamtons inspired ensembles like this one below...

Ad Love...



The autumn ad campaigns are appearing thick and fast ahead of the much anticipated September magazines, and this one from Longchamp is my current favourite. Following on from their quirky Spring campaign, these latest shots are equally fun! Coco Rocha is fabulous and the images are so striking - I can't wait to see them in print!

Weekend Style..


I can't believe it's Monday already, the weekend went far too quick! 
I had a fabulous time celebrating my birthday with all the girls on Saturday night. My dress was by Ted Baker and I completed the outfit with a pair of sparkly heels from Aldo! We had a great night with lots of cake, cocktails and dancing!

Have a happy week :)

Friday's Fancies: Euro Trip


Happy Friday!
I had to indulge in my love of all things Parisian for this week's 'Euro Trip' themed Friday's Fancies. I spotted this trench in Warehouse yesterday and I think it's the perfect transitional piece. Classic skinny jeans and cute ballet flats make this look perfect for daytime strolling whilst the coral Marc by Marc Jacobs bag adds a lovely pop of colour!

Head over to Long Distance Loving for more European inspired styles :)



Have a fabulous weekend !

Ad Love...

Hi everyone!
First off, thanks for all the lovely birthday messages yesterday. I had a great day and I'm really looking forward to celebrating this weekend! In the meantime, I've been admiring the gorgeous Fendi autumn/winter campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld and starring the gorgeous Joan Smalls. The mix of colour and textures are striking against the rustic Tuscan scenery while the handbags are to die for! I love it all!

Weekend Style..


Stripes and white jeans are an easy go-to for casual weekend style. To switch things up a bit, I recently teamed mine with a fun pair of polka dot platforms! The nautical look always reminds me of summer, even if the weather we are experiencing does not - note the windswept hair! Here's hoping for brighter days this week :)

Friday's Fancies: Wedding Guest


Happy Friday all! 

With a 'Wedding Guest' theme on this week's Friday's Fancies, it's all about the dress!
I've chosen a gorgeous 1920s inspired number from Karen Millen - the soft pleats and dropped waist are so simple yet stunning! Bow heels and a sparkly clutch are a must for the finishing touch!

Style Star: Miroslava Duma


Former Harper's Bazaar editor Miroslava Duma has risen to become some what of a celeb on the street style circuit. From Haute Couture shows to the seasonal collections, she is never far from a photographer's gaze. Her style is completely unique and she manages to pull of a myriad of different looks, always looking polished and fabulous! These are just a few of my favourites...

Weekend Style..


For a girls night out, sequins will always be my first choice!
I pulled out my favourite Zara skirt for my friend Elaine's birthday cocktails on Saturday night. We all had a great night and even saw some evening sunshine for a change!

Happy Monday

Friday's Fancies: Stars & Stripes


Happy Friday all, another busy week has just flown by!

For this week's Fancies, I've pulled together a nautical look to tie in with the Stars & Stripes theme. The bow lover in me couldn't resist these adorable Carvela flats! Like last week, most items featured are on sale at the moment and seriously tempting me to shop! 




Check out more Stars & Stripes over on Long Distance Loving


Wishing you a fabulous weekend! 
 I'm looking forward to relaxing for a few days and celebrating my friend Elaine's birthday tomorrow night! I just have to decide what to wear... :)

Navy & Orange

Inspired by Victoria Beckham's spring collection, today's post is all about navy and orange colour blocking. Navy is such a classic, chic colour and the pop of orange gives it a modern twist! Here are my top picks for re-creating the look...I'm loving the Lipsy peplum dress!

Ad Love...


While it might be a little early to be thinking about Autumn fashion, (though the weather we are experiencing tells me otherwise) these DKNY campaign images are too good to resist! The Fall collection was one of my favourites from the New York runway and the campaign does not disappoint. Ashley Greene looks stunning alongside Olivia Palermo's beau Johannes Huebl in the heart of NYC. The overall look is effortlessly chic, while the accessories are to die for. The handbag in the second image below is definitely going on my autumn wishlist!

Style Star: Blake Lively

Blake Lively has been busy on the promotional circuit this week for her upcoming movie, Savages. With a wardrobe to die for, she has stepped out in every label from Michael Kors and Marios Schwab, to Lanvin and Jenny Packham. I'm swooning over her hot pink dress in particular!

Here's to a stylish week!
