Print me Up!

Sunday saw the launch of the Peter Pilotto for Target range on Net a Porter, and I was lucky enough to remember to check the site in the morning when all stock was still available. It was a stroke of genius that Net a Porter decided to exclusively stock a few of the items from the range so that those of us not lucky enough to have US shipping addresses could get hold of them.

Fast forward a couple of days and this arrived… Exciting!

I’m so impressed with the quality of the clothes. Beautiful crepe, the softest jersey and stunning prints all make this collection covetable. Here are the pieces now gracing my wardrobe.

Did you manage to get a hold of anything? Would love to know.

Tuesday Shoes-Day

Geox Marian Black Leather Ankle Boot

Urgh. When will it stop raining? Rich said to me this morning that one of his school friends posted on Facebook “bring back the snow all is forgiven”. She’s right! I’m totally fed up of re-wearing the same shoes as only a handful of pairs keep my feet warm and dry. This is such a pair.

I bought these at the end of 2012 and they have featured on here a few times since. Formal or casual, they’re great – just the right heel height for trotting around town.

Today I’m wearing them with:

Zebra print shirt – Topshop
Black Leather Full Skirt – HM
Black tights – Wolford

I’ve put my hair up today as yesterday I felt bedraggled. Another side effect of the wind and rain. At least this way it stays put.

Tomorrow I’m off to sunnier climes that are South Florida for some time at Head Office and a small jaunt around the Southern Caribbean on Carnival Breeze. Although I’m working I will be glad to see some Sunshine (although wishing my guys were coming with me!)

A Healthy January

20140206-072340.jpg

Some of you will have seen from my Instagram feed that during January, Rich and I decided to embark on the #Whole30. More for health benefits than anything else it was an eye opening month that has made a lasting impression on how and what we choose to eat.

Rather than go into the whole shebang here, I’ve actually written a guest post for Rebecca over at Florence Finds.

Take a look at how I got on.

Pining for Pastels

I has an email drop into my inbox this morning from Gap and it made me pine after the pastels that I really can’t wear.

Gorgeous peaches, pinks and blues, they really do nothing for my skin tone unfortunately. However I do try and wear them on my bottom half to get my fix. (How amazing are those floral Oxford shoes though?!)

Its lucky that SS14 this year has other colours that I can lust over. More on that later this week.

Are you a pastel fan?

Tuesday Shoes-Day

Zara Navy Blue Soft Leather Moccasin

Moccasin. Isn’t that a lovely word? It isn’t one is personally use to describe these Navy flats however, illustrated by the fact it took me ages to find a stock photo of them on google as I was searching for loafer/ flat/ slipper.

20140204-090440.jpg
Nevertheless these have been a good edition to my wardrobe over the last few months and I can see them being even more useful as we move into spring and the bare feet can come out.

I know suede isn’t the most practice of shoe fabrics, especially in the winter, but for today, where I’ll be inside most of the time, they work well with my navy & black ensemble.

Today I’m wearing:
Navy sweater – Uniqlo Men’s
Navy & Black lace skirt (one of my sale buys)
Art Deco style necklace – Lulu Frost for Whistles

It’s date night tonight and Hubbie and I are off to Sake No Hana on a Toptable deal, but not before a drink at the top of his office building (taking advantage before it’s turned into flats!). Another restaurant ticked off the London must eat at list. I do love a deal!

Enjoy your Tuesdays all! 🙂

Making a Statement

20140203-215103.jpg

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the statement necklace. Whether its to dress up a plain outfit, or to compliment something I’m wearing colour-wise, I have a selection that suit any occasion.

Mostly, they are from Zara. They have really upped their game in the past few seasons and last Christmas I was saved on a couple of occasions from wearing dull evening dresses (read: plain black) by wearing a jewelled creation fit for the Tower of London!

I have all the necklaces in the image above and some can be seen in situ on the photos below.

Having said that, I don’t wear them all the time, preferring to alternate them with my go-to necklace, my beloved Tiffany Starfish.

BUT, something exciting is soon to be starting where not only will I get to wear some gorgeous new pieces, but you could too! More on that soon enough 🙂

Are you a fan of statement jewellery?
