What I wear

Topshop head-to-toe! Love their maternity jeans and this kimono jacket was an eBay purchase last year. I cut the fringing off (it just ain't me - I'm about as far away from Boho you can get) and wear it at least once a week. 31 weeks!

Since becoming pregnant loads of my old style faithfuls are no longer comfortable - necklaces, scarves, high waisted skirts and trousers. I've really had to simplify my outfits which is where this awesome white shirt comes in! Charity shop bargain! 

Wore this on my Hen Do 2 years ago - fab Baum & Pferdgarten dress which used to sit on my waist and has transformed into a handy empire line to encircle the bump! 

So kids high tops it is! Nike Air Force trainers worn with Topshop maternity jeans, Eat Sleep Read t-shirt (which used to be Rich's) and H&M Trend jacket bought from eBay

5 months and counting! This trusty H&M Trend tunic has been with me for over 10years, It has been tucked into hareem pants and worn with sandals in the summer and now has come into its own with Topshop maternity leggings and backless mules. 

Topshop head to toe!

My maternity style nailed: skinny jeans, awesome shoes, tee or top and jacket

This is a H&M boys t-shirt. They fit longer in the body so are great for dressing a new bump - there's no riding up!

Wearing head-to-toe Topshop. 

Getting into 80's jackets this year. This one was a gift from a client!!

Maje dress styled for winter with a faux fur coat purchased from eBay in July 2016 for £17!

 Maje dress alert! I bought this for my TV show (brighter colours work better on TV) and haven't stopped wearing it since! It was a bit spendy but so worth it; it hand washes like a dream and doesn't need ironing. I've worn it with trainers, boots and heels. A great 'all rounder' purchase. These trainers are from New Look.

LOVE this Preen for Topshop dress. I found it on eBay last year after my wedding and it has been hanging in my wardrobe ever since just waiting for the sun to shine so I could crack it out! It's got proper Elvis vibes as it is studded all over the back! Worn with M&S mules from last year.

Love this varsity blazer from House of Vintage in Portland. A honeymoon purchase costing the princely sum of $20! With H&M basic tee, Topshop MOM jeans, Maje belt and Zara heels.

These Topshop trousers have been a firm wardrobe staple since the beginning of the year. Worn with Zara sandals, Whistles bardot top and Liberty silk scarf.

Hello colour! T-shirt from Rich's wardrobe (he got a vintage oversized sweater in return), jacket from eBay, Topshop Mom jeans and M&S bargain sale mules at £2.50. Belt is Maje.

A while ago I stopped wearing logo t-shirts...WHY??? I thought I should dress more 'grown up' and bough lots of blouses. Sucks-boo to THAT. Hello logo-awesomeness!

Lunging like the goddess I am!

Ah, stripes. On the shirt and on the trousers. Natch.

Rich and I have found THE PERFECT SPOT for outfit post shots so expect A LOT more! I styled my Banana Republic Heritage dress 3 ways. Here it's teamed with a Zoe Karssen Jumper (£16.99 from TK Maxx) and New Look double height trainers.  

Next up a print clash of the floral dress and Rich's / MY blue & white striped shirt. White mules from M&S bought last year in the sales for £2.50

For some reason this pic brings to mind West Side story vibes...

And last but not least for an event with red lips, nails and Zara shoes. 

#VintageFaceandStyle 1980s inspired look: vintage clutch and jumper, shoes and coat from Sue Ryder, Topshop Mom jeans and Mikey ear candy

I was in London at the beginning of Feb planning a personal shop. It was cold so I layered up wearing an awesome M&S knit from a Sue Ryder charity shop, leather jacket, COS duster coat and Topshop trousers. 

I commissioned John Steel to take some photos of me for my website. We ended up having the most fun plus he's a great photographer. Wearing Zara lace top, Banana Republic skirt, Zara shoes and vintage fur wrap (originally worn for my wedding). 

Really upped my scarf game this year - this beauty is from Accessorize worn with COS wool coat and Zoe Karssen jumper. 

Strong scarf game yet again. Also loving my shiny show pony hair. Thanks Kerastase Resistance!

This week ended with an impromptu photo shoot on a viaduct in Greetland, Halifax, Laura, Queen of Vintage who owns and runs Grandma Eileen's Vintage, interviewed me for her blog. Read it all about it here..

Scarf from Topshop, 'fear' eyes and hair all models own

For my hen do I glam squaded it up in a Baum-und-Pferdgarten dress, Topshop blazer and vintage Bally shoes. Plus some faux fur. Can't not have faux fur on your Hen Do!

Oh Haiii new season!

As soon as the weather makes its mind up and summer starts, this combo is coming OUT!


This H&M top fitted like waves on the sea. (fitting room selfie)

Celebrating my engagement!! Sequins were the order of that very special day!

This top was made by none other than OLEG CASSINI!! Dresser of Jackie Kennedy!

Got a slight whiff of Alexa Chung about me here, me thinks! Gap leather A-line skirt, Alice & Olivia blouse, Pure Collection cashmere crew neck and vintage pearls. Plus tights. Love a thick black tight in winter, I do. 

OOOO I love clutch

Reminder to self: Safari jacket does not equal permission to act like an explorer

Yes, that's right - I am auditioning to be a secretary!

Hood up weather ahoy!!

Navy & Black & Leopard & awesomeness

Me getting in on the parka trend early. Parka from charity shop, Topshop jeans, Harry Hall boots plus various other layers as I was freezing in Colwyn Bay.

THE Dress. From Zara. Wardrobe happiness ensues....

Blouse from a charity shop (£3 bargain), faux fur cape from Per Una (very old!), leaves from the trees. 

I remember buying this Henry Holland t-shirt. I was living in London in 2007 and I met my sister after work for a drink in the East End. I was sitting in a bar waiting for her and there was this boutique next door. These t-shirts were so fashionable, I cannot even describe how wide my eyes got when I saw this t-shirt just hanging there. After checking out the price tag (too expensive) and knowing instinctively it as too big (one size) I still removed it from the rail and dream-walked over to the cash desk.

That was 7 years ago and the t-shirt, even though I fell outta love with it and at one time considered selling it (FYI you can't even give these babies away on eBay anymore), has quickly become my go-to logo t-shirt; I just tuck it in, roll up the arms and me and the tee are good to go. And now, because everyone sold there's or gave them away, mine looks pretty original.

My denim shirt has quickly become a wardrobe staple. After I cried tears of joy in a GAP fitting room in February after unearthing it from a sale rail, I have worn it pretty much weekly. I'm on a mission to style it many ways so I don't get bored of it. Here is is tucked under my vintage sequin top and adorned with a cotton necktie. 

When I did my Image Consultancy course the trainer said "you are either a jacket person or a cardigan person". Never a truer word spoken. My sister is all about the cardigans. I can't stand them; always falling open over the boob, draping weirdly and what's with the misplaced pockets? Na, hand me a jacket any day. I've had this YaYa jacket from Atterley Road smooching around in the back of my wardrobe for a sometime. Why? I never wear red. For reals. This winter all that will change and this slouchy biker jacket masquerading as a cardigan will do just fine for keeping me warm when I'm sat tap tapping updating this here blog!

I was working from home in this Zara sweater dress complete with razzle dazzle sequins on Wednesday when I remembered I had a networking event. Quickly popped on the M&S boots, some phat jewellery and exited stage left. At the 'do' a lady said "You work in fashion. I can tell from your clothes." Amen sister.

DENIM! DENIM! DENIM! Preen denim skirt (so white), Zara top (I've worn this with jeans before) and a denim jacket which has been in my wardrobe for aeons. I chopped the collar off it this week and et voila! New lease of life.
