The Belted Blazer

This is one of my favourite style takes - pairing a blazer and a belt. The blazer is such a key item in any wardrobe and adding a belt really helps to create a tailored look. If you have an oversized blazer, cinch it in with a belt for a more defined silhouette. Depending on [...]

How to Wear a Slip Skirt in Winter

The silk skirt can be both casual and formal - it just depends on how you style it. I like to wear it with ankle boots, a thick jumper and a blazer jacket. For a more casual look, just pair it with a plain t-shirt, ankle boots and a leather jacket. It’s a very simple [...]

Starting of the New Year with a Paler Palette

I don’t usually make New Year resolutions but talking through resolutions with friends got me thinking more about them. The phrase ‘New Year, New Me’ I don’t think is the most positive encouragement. This year I was contemplating why we make resolutions, thinking about what I need to do more or less of in my [...]

All with Sézane’s eclectic style. Around the store you will find water infused with lemons, cucumbers and oranges, as well as a range of biscuits dotted around [...]

Winter Warmers

It’s now December which is my favourite month of the year. It always seems such a wonderful time seeing all the decorations go up (luckily for me I get to see both the decorations in London and Paris - Rue Saint Honoré is always delightful). Most people are in a cheery, festive mood and at [...]

The Layering Look

My absolute favourite thing about the Autumn and Winter months are getting to layer my outfits. Nothing is worse than feeling bulky and overloaded with clothes, I tend to go with quite a few light layers; I can easily take off if it gets warmer throughout the day. The most important thing to me is [...]

Autumn’s Golden Hour in Paris

In Paris we’ve been having an Indian summer recently. We couldn’t be further away from winter. I love these last few warm days. It’s always nice to wander around the streets of Paris in just a light dress, strappy shoes and no jacket. Strolling along the Seine, browsing the bouquinistes, sipping coffee on the terrace [...]

Attire for Autumn

Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year, when the leaves start to go golden-brown, the air is more crisp and less heavy than in summer and of course layering starts to happen! Autumn covers those tricky few months where it’s not cold enough to wear woolly jumpers but not warm enough to wear [...]

The Linen Dress – A Last Look at Summer

I know that summer is finally ending but one fashion item I found perfect for hot weather is a linen dress. I advise you to buy one for your next travels somewhere warm or for when summer comes back around again. I always find that linen, as it’s a light fabric, is ideal for when the [...]

It’s a Wrap!

In summer my usual favourite outfit is some sort of wrap dress - made iconic by Diane Von Furstenberg in the 1970’s. They are flowy, light and very flattering to wear as they can accentuate the female figure. I am currently travelling around the south of France so a wrap dress is ideal for exploring [...]
