The new skirt shape to wear this season is full, circle shaped. It doesn’t matter if it is short midi or long. Here is some inspiration…..

Shop from here…..

This skirt also comes in a cobalt blue.

Jaeger £165

This Chalayan skirt is denim and is a great update to your autumn wardrobe.

Chalayan at net-a-porter £200

This leather skirt is perfect for day or evening and a beautiful blue colour.

Whistles £95


W is for Wu


I am browsing through all the latest new arrivals and Jason Wu is always on my wish list. The Pre-Fall collection is lovely, feminine but certainly not girly. I am using the collection as inspiration for shopping at my local High Street tomorrow.

I have the perfect dress already to emulate this look, I bought it from the NW3 sale this Spring.

Here it is..

It fits so well and creates an hour glass shape even on me! With bare legs and the right shoes I think it will work.

Maybe these from MaxMara £378.

This skirt from Jaeger also has that Wu look.

And of course a lot more affordable at £120 in the sale. I also quite like this dress from Marks and Spencer, £45. Nice print and neckline.

Roll on shopping day!

Details details


It seems right now that there are lots of fab jewellery looks around. Delicate pendants look really cool with low neck lines, long charm necklaces are great over a swinging vest. Big chunky collars and tribal style necklaces can update simple tees and jeans.

Delicate layering

Long pendants

This afternoon I will be getting my old man to venture into the loft for me (eek spiders!) and get down my summer clothes from last year. Going through them is a fun thing to do, seeing what will work for this season, and I think just getting a couple of new pieces of jewellery may be all I need to update last years floaty top/denim shorts combo and maxi dresses.

Oversized metal feather pendant Urban Outfitters £28

This will look great dangling almost at my waist with a boxy t-shirt and shorts. It could toughen up a tea-dress too.

Wallis £10

Beaded bib necklace £85 Jaeger

The two necklaces above are great for me as I have a small bust they add some interest.

I really like the leaf and feather charms that have been everywhere this season. Here are my current faves..

Oliver Bonas leaf pendant £9.00

Wallis feather earrings £3.00

Miranda earring £9.00 Oliver Bonas

After all that talk my husband has disappeared to the pub with a neighbour!! Must be brave……

Good for Friday


Whatever you are doing this Good Friday, and whatever you are wearing, these little fashion fixes pull it all together.

Satin back Crepe Jacket The Kooples £310

Prince of Wales Jacket The Kooples £355

I love The Kooples – simple but cool.

Cutaway Jacket Jaeger £240

Leather padded shoulder Jacket, Scotch and Soda 448,95€

These jackets would look great with your midi/maxi or mini skirts, skinnies or the new boot-cut jeans and trousers. And would toughen up a prim or pretty dress perfectly. I think that has just about got it all covered.
