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!

What to wear?

There is that French Riviera look, one that St Tropez famously sports. We recommend, shirt dresses, flowing caftans, floppy sun hats and gladiator sandals. If you can describe your outfit as chic, your good to so in St Tropez.

Stylist takes London Fashion Weekend!

Hello everyone,

This week I’ve been back in the fashion capital attending one of the most talked about LFW events… London Fashion Weekend.

The show runs for 4 days from Friday to Sunday, I went to check it out on the final day.

Lets get straight into it with the location, this year it was at a new venue, the very picturesque Saatchi gallery right in the heart of the super chic Chelsea.
