Life & Style
Just a few of my favourite things this week.....
3rd May 2016
I don't care what the weather is doing, I'm just going to pretend it's spring and be done with it. This lovely little off-the-shoulder top from Warehouse will look equally lovely with jeans, skirts and shorts. Tuck it in if you need to lenghten your bottom half but do be careful if you have broad shoulders as this may make you look even broader. The cold shoulder look is everywhere this season and Warehouse and Zara are leading the pack in my opinion. Go forth and enjoy the sunshine (??!)

Stripes are always in the shops and every year they get a slight update. This time around stripes are bold and bright. Stripes are a great way to add a chic print into your wardrobe. The wider the stripe the more flattering so update your Breton top and go for a striped knitted dress. This dress from Topshop is a fun spring pick which I'll be layering over a denim shirt now and wearing on its own in the warmer months to come.

This Whistles lace two-piece is just divine. The colour combination of the two shades of orange makes it feel very chic and the fact that it is a top and skirt rather than a dress makes the outfit much more versatile. Just wear the top with jeans or denim shorts for a casual look or team the skirt with a white shirt and heels for a smart day look or a simple navy tee and flat sandals for a perfect weekend outfit.

Bomber jackets are a big deal this spring and they are all over the High Street. As usual Zara are leading the way and I may have treated myself to this gorgeous black one. It is lovely and silky with beautiful cherry blossom embroidery. To avoid looking like a wall panel from a Chinese restaurant keep the rest of your outfit simple and let the jacket do the talking.
