Spring Showers



I am waiting for Spring and lazily weighing up the trench coat options.


There are some fabulous designs this year. Hobbs provide the traditional trench coat in some absolutely stunning colours


whilst Toast have a trench that will happily sit over a woolen layer.



My favourite is this little coat from ME+EM. The three-quarter length sleeves allow for a flash of colour at the wrist




A colour to die for

It is not often that I find a colour that sings to me.  My complexion requires quite a ‘true’ colour, not just bold but pure.  Wearing the exact, perfect shade next to your face will transform you inside and out.  A glow emits.

Brora mohair

Here is my blue, in all its glory.  It may not be for you but there is certainly one out there if you look hard enough.

Blush pink at ME+EM


For the lighter/cooler colour types there is a delightful sugary blush pink hiding amongst the other brighter summer colours.

At Me+Em they have two stunning garments in this shade.









I adore this little top, such a simple design, so easy to wear either with jeans or with white palazzo pants.  It will be easy to maintain and won’t really require an iron.

The second is a tiered garden party dress, slightly less pink and more blush.  It reminds me of a tea rose.   Again this is an easy style to wear, especially when the days are hot and close in the height of the summer season.
