Ahoy there......

In the summertime I love to put on my sailor hat and let the nautical look sail me through the warm summer months.
The nautical trend will suit almost everyone and is such an easy look to put together. 

Go all out with wide-leg sailor buttoned trousers, a nautical striped blazer and finish it off with a seaman style hat or go for the more subtle look by adding in one key sailor style piece like a stripe silk vest with plain jeans.

My sailor look above has been pulled together with this-seasons hottest pieces which are all available to order now via

The pieces I pulled together are:-

Alice and Olivia stripe blazer
Balenciaga skinny fit dark blue jeans - go for the dark blue jeans for a good contrast
Givenchy red shopper bag
Giuseppe Zanotti suede espadrilles
Henrik Vibskov 'Able' seaman hat
Maison Martin Margiela brass cuff bangle
Wunderkind coin necklace
Vince drawstring linen trousers
Theory silk stripe vest

Gorgeous in Green

Green is my hot colour just now. I just can't get enough of gorgeous green things, especially in the khaki and olive shades.
Here's some of the gorgeous green things I have my eye on:-

Alexander McQueen skull scarf - this olive green scarf has a warm cream toned skull print and is made in a buttery soft modal and cashmire blend. This really is an iconic accessory that will look great with most things.

Yves Saint Laurent - These 'Tribtoo'suede pumps with the beautiful emerald green suede scream glamour!

 Chanel Khaki collection nail polish. Avilable in 'Khaki Rose', 'Khaki brun' and Khaki Vert', everyone should dress there nails in these limited edition shades. I have the 'Khaki Brun' nail polish and I just love wearing it!

Oscar De La Renta dress - do 'romantic' in this amazing Green basketweave silk-gazar dress. Team this with simple black heels and a clutch and I can guarantee you will be the bell of the ball in this!

Coming Soon..........

The MAC Wonder Woman Collection

This collection is due to go on sale at Selfridges around the 17th February and at MAC around the 3rd March and i'm sure it will be a sell-out that day!
From lipgloss to mascare to nail polish, this collection has it all and 'm sure once you put it on you will feel like a wonder woman!!

I am after a classic black mascare and perhaps the false eye-lashes from this collection, so I will be online and waiting to get in fast and order them before they are all gone.


Buy it now

Warehouse is not a store I am often in but when I was walking past the store today and saw this gorgeous blouse in the window I just had to go in!

So what is so special about this blouse?......... well, first of all the silk material is so light and floaty that it makes you feel feminine and sexy. The blouse features a beautiful swallow print where the multi shades of green, purple and blue tones stand out against the clean cream silk.
The blouse has a pussy-bow tie which adds the finishing touch to it.

This is such a versatile piece for your collection as it will look great wearing to work tucked into a fitted pencil skirt and kitten heel shoe or team it with buttersoft chocolate leather shorts and chunky heeled ankle boots whilst shopping with friends.

Holding out for a bargain

Sales...... you either love them or hate them. Many bargains are to be had if you have the time and the patience to sift through the jumble looking set-up.

I suppose it depends on what kind of mood I am in wether I enjoy the sales or not. I have often got great bargains from sales and in the likes of TK Maxx. Take for example, the gorgeous black Alexander McQueen dress and Moschino jacket I got from there- I was geared up and in a "hunting out the bargain" mood that day and was so delighted when I stumbled across these.

With sales, I think if you follow the number one golden rule of "if you wouldn't want to buy it at full price then don't just buy it because its reduced" you will be fine!

I have had my eye on this gorgeous skirt by ADAM and these Alexander McQueen ankle boots for a while now and although the are now both in the sale, they are still abit pricey for me so i'm holding out to see if they reduce these some more! This is a risky strategy as too often has been the case where I have not got something I loved and then by the time I went to get it it's been gone....ooops.

 I have styled my sale wishlist items above in this "summer rock" look. I've teamed the beautiful chiffon-silk skirt with a simple classic black topshop vest (the trusty faithful staple piece) and a cute Balenciaga drawstring pouch bag. The plain top lets the skirt stand out and do all the talking and the giant silver hardware detailing on the bag picks out the silver buckle detailing on the ankle boots. 

Keep you all posted on wether I cave in and order these or not before they are going, going, gone!

When it comes to sunglasses................................

.........The Bigger, the better

Jackie O, she was one of the major style icons of the 60's. When you think of Jackie O the first thing you remember is the glamourous oversized sunglasses she always featured. Her sunglasses were her trademark, women everywhere were soon to be seen wearing oversized sunglasses, in the daytime or night!

Jackie O

Today, oversized sunglasses are still as popular as ever, probably even more so with more influential celebs like Victoria Beckham and the Olsen twins being featured wearing them as the seasons must have staple accessory.

I love both Aviator and oversized sunglasses so I like to alternate between the styles depending on my mood.
I prefer the plastic sunglasses as opposed to the metal frames as I feel the plastic frames are softer on my face and more comfortable for me to wear.

Here's some of this seasons hottest oversized sunglasses that are available to buy now:-

 Alexander McQueen
Ooh, I love these! These round framed black sunglasses feature an unusual ridged edge detail around the sides, it reminds me a bit like a zip! I think these are simple, classic and the detailing will make them stand out. These are from the Mode de Vue boutique in Paris and are available to order via at £239, perhaps a little bit pricey, but ooh so worth it!

Victoria Beckham
"Flard Jackie O sunglasses", well we know where these frames took there inspiration from!
 The price tag for these beauties is not for the faint hearted................ these will set you back £325 and are available to order from

These black plastic sunglasses are very Olsen Twin style. These will set you back £265 and are available to order via

Don't forget the High Street has a wealth of gorgeous sunglasses to choose from too. Often high street stores will try to mirror the design of there collections to model that of the designer styles so you don't need to pay designer prices for your sunglasses unless you really fall in love with something special.

Hot picks of the High Street

Oversized sunglasses at an undersized price of £12

At under £15, these wont break your budget!

Remember, sunglasses aren't just a fashion accessory, they are there to protect your eyes so remember to ensure they have UV protection, trust me, not only will you look good, you will feel good!
