Vintage Velvet

Those Autumn afternoons when the blazing heat of the day disappears and there is a slight chill in the air as the sun is setting. At the beginning of Autumn it can be difficult to choose what to wear; even though summer is over the weather is just as warm. A little dress and a bolero are ideal for making the transition to the new season.

Icicle Store

Icicle is a slow fashion brand from Shanghai, it opened last September on the Iconic George V it’s a must see visit if you’re in Paris. The store is more than just a brand it’s a lifestyle where every detail is carefully crafted and curated with either books or home decorations.

Vintage Stores in Paris

I find that the clothes you find in vintage stores always have so much more character than the typical high street stores. Nothing is worse than buying a piece of clothing and as soon as you leave the store you’ve spotted at least 5 people wearing exactly the same item.

Winter Walks

Despite the chilly weather, it’s always nice to go on a refreshing walk in winter. It’s great to enjoy the crisp blue sky (when it’s actually sunny!).  Grab a take-away coffee to keep you warm whilst you wander through the Tuileries. Find one of the iconic green chairs with your coffee – it’s ideal to […]

Winter Wear

Every December I always enjoy passing through Place Vendôme to see all the decorations. There’s something magical about the Christmas season in Paris. Seeing the floating trees at Le Bon Marché whilst trying to find the perfect gift. Exploring the Marché de Noël in the Tuileries and taking in the scent of roasted chestnuts. And […]

Autumn Tones

Neutral, warm, muted tones. That time when the weather becomes more crisp and chilly. The landscapes and cityscapes become amber, auburn, golden. Autumn is that wonderful time of year when you get to start layering (in a sophisticated manner). For outfits I like to have quite muted, neutral colours but have a dash of lightness, […]

Back Side / Dos à la mode exhibition

Musée Bourdelle has just opened its doors to a new exhibition: “Back Side /Dos à la mode”. The exhibition, curated by Alexandre Samson, displays the work of numerous designers – Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe, Rick Owens, Balenciaga, Schiaparelli and The Row, to name but a few.It explores the fascination with the back in fashion, whether it’s […]

The Summer Shirt

I love the look of wearing a shirt over swimwear – just throwing it over a bikini or swimsuit. Perfect to get through summer whilst tanning without burning. The shirt is something that is loose, light but still sophisticated. And choosing one in a bright colour makes it not too formal. I have always loved […]

How to wear knitwear in summer

The idea of wearing knits in summer sounds rather odd, you might immediately think of cardigans and jumpers. But recently I bought some knitwear pieces, and I can’t wait for winter to wear them. For some reason summer knits remind me of the Côte d’Azur and Brigitte Bardot in the 1950’s. I’m always looking for […]

Summer dress in the city

Paris in the summer has something special about it, more than any other city I’ve visited. Usually I don’t get to stay in Paris for too long during the summer, but this year I decided to spend more time enjoying the city whilst it’s warm. Whether it’s going to the markets in the morning, strolling […]

Blue Tones in Place Vendôme

  Now that Spring is finally here I love to wear just a blouse with jeans – goodbye to heavy jackets!  I’m always drawn to a silk version.  In Spring it’s perfect weather to wear this wonderful fabric – thin enough not to be too warm and the long sleeves are great if you want […]

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 […]

L'appartement Sézane

L’appartement Sézane is a concept store in the 2nd arrondisment. They have a number of items to choose from – clothing, bags, shoes, jewellery and of course interior accessories. 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 […]

The Trench

Whilst it is now May we can still have the occasional bad day weather-wise. I find that the trench coat is perfect for this time of year because it is both light and waterproof. It’s one of those wardrobe staples that can be worn throughout the year by styling it in different ways. So it’s […]

An outfit to put a spring in your step!

Spring has finally sprung! It’s been a long time coming but spring is finally here. It’s the perfect time to update your wardrobe with a look that will take you from a walk in the park, to lunch outside in the sunshine, to cocktails on the rooftop terrace. I also like to combine soft neutral colours with […]

Summer Blues

Since the weather is cold and grey, I have been thinking about the sunny days of summer. I have also found photos on my camera from my time in Greece in July. I have noticed that there have been more blue tones in shops and blogs recently. So I thought I’d do a blog post […]

Embellished Jacket

This jacket is one of my favourite jackets. I love the intricate and bold details. It is one of those really unique stand out pieces that I had to buy. When you style an item like this it is best not to wear clashing items of clothing and accessories with it but keep things very […]
