How to pull an all-black outfit

I purchased a beautiful black Ruffled turtle neck Jumper from La Redoute last week and as I received it I started to think how I would pair it with other clothes of mine. Although I like black in winter, you will probably never see me dressed all in black. Personally, I find it a bit too harsh and a bit too moody. Instead, I like to style it with colourful accessories.

I am massively fond of pendant earrings and in particular of tassel earrings. I bought this pair from Continue reading

My finest selection of Christmas jumpers

After more than 10 years in the UK, the Christmas jumpers tradition has definitely grown on me. Now, I love seeing friends, colleagues and family parading in their Christmas themed jumpers and tops from now until Christmas.

It is a cheesy tradition I will admit but a fun one nonetheless. Could you resist the temptation one more year or fall for one item from my selection? I have ‘curated’ for you the nicest models on the web and I hope you find a lovely model to buy right now before they all end up out of stock because it’s all too late.

So here we go:

The return of the bandana scarf

You know guys, I am a huge fan of accessories: earrings, belts, scarves…these are the details that make me and can give just this more personable look.

Red bandana look in London

You will often see me wear a scarf as I have a tendency to have a sensitive throat but in summer, wearing a scarf is more a little detail to complement a look. One of my sisters wanted to spoil me for my birthday this summer and I asked her if she could find me a bandana scarf. Continue reading

It’s all about the frills

I have made no secret I like looking feminine. I may not always be able to be bang on trend or be the coolest girl on the block but, with age, I just try to find my own style. I have always loved the addition of frills on certain pieces of clothing so what a treat it is fashionable this season. What it means is that there are tonnes of cute clothes with frills this summer in the shops & online.

My new Fashion crush is called….HUSH!

It’s taken me ages to find my style fashion wise and I made lots of mistakes over the years. Looking at old photos, I cringe in horror! Pinterest has massively helped me to find what I think is ME (I created a My style board which was a good starting point!) In terms of Fashion shopping, I have often bought clothes from a variety of shops but none has never quite matched my newfound style. Well, that was until recently as I finally came across a brand that covers nearly all my styles and needs: it’s called HUSH.

Oops I….fell for the gingham trend!

I have seen a number of cool trends popping up for the Spring Summer! As much as I wish I could buy all of my favourite ones, the frugal mum that I need to be has to make decisions. Then Mother’s day happened and l’Homme offered me the chance to get a little treat.  I really wanted a new little dress for the summer  without breaking the bank and this little black gingham number hit the nail on the head:

The one skirt you need to invest this season

I am a big Pinterest lover. I browse when I get a moment and it’s been a fabulous source of inspiration on numerous fronts but particularly with my photographic project lately. I have also loved Pinterest because , I have finally been able to pin the (fashion) style that makes me feel happy, the style that I now aim to reproduce and feels like me.

Over the years, a look that I have pinned on several occasions has been the pleated skirt. I was so chuffed last winter when I saw it in a midi version in the shops but somehow missed the boat to get one at that point. Living in the UK, wearing a skirt in winter is challenging (rain, cold, wind…you name it!). It can also be tricky to be wearing a skirt when I am looking after my 3 little ones as I am constantly bending, carrying my toddler/shopping, sitting on the floor…
