Spring is in the air

March has arrived and we are longing for lighter days and fresh spring air.
The reason we love spring so much is it allows us to completely revamp our heavy wardrobe of chunky knits and earthy tones and brightens our days with softer fabrics and warm spring colours.

Spring is the time to break out of the cocoon we have been hibernating in for the last 6 months and shake off our old selves and start over.

We have some gorgeous new arrives and some amazing pieces returning again this season.

Beautiful crisp white & nude crochet pieces – prefect for garden parties and summer weddings.

The return of the two piece – Start those summer holiday essentials (because the outfits are just as important as the holiday, right?)

lets not also forget the perfect accessory

The weather will start to get a little warm which means sleeves will get shorter, this calls for arm candy!

We hope you are looking forward to lighter days and warmer nights as much as we are!

I think its safe to say we are avidly awaiting BBQ season with a cool glass of Pimms, Ed Sheeran serenading us and of course our greatest accessory – the girls!

Parisian Weekend Getaway xo

paris polaroids 1

A weekend in Paris is the perfect getaway, whether its a trip with your girls or your love, Paris is the place to go.

paris books

Our first stop for ideas on what to do in Paris is our favourite books, ‘How To Be Parisian’ and ‘Bright Lights Paris’ they both offer great ideas on where to shop, dine and stay…Parisian style.

Where to shop?

Le Triangle D’or a small part of Paris has now been named “The Golden Triangle” this is where you will find the finest couture houses and cafés surrounded by the perfect triangle formed by Avenue Montaigne, Avenue George V, and Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Christian Dior, Céline, Balmain are just a few you will find at Le Triangle D’or, finish the shopping trip off with a stop at La Maison du Chocolate.

The Eiffel Tower

All day and night the Eiffel Tower looks incredible. We recommend taking a trip and having a champagne picnic under the tower at lunch time, and then taking a cab to watch it light up the city and sparkle at night.

Where to eat?

If you are wanting a light lunch and a sweet treat, head to Ladurée for a glass of champagne, a Croque-monsieur and some Macaroons.

What to pack?

When in Paris, dress like a Parisian, so pack your skinny jeans, black blazer, chic silk scarf, oversized sunglasses and a white shirt.
