Woah, imagine you spend your day celebrating your mum’s birthday and forget to blog? I’d never do that. What I did do, though, is swim in a harbour with Fiona, avoided the crowds on a weekday visit to Frank’s Bar (see above), put up a shelf (go femi-DIY!) and made a really good sour prawn [...]
This picture, taken just before summer actually arrived, looks unthinkable now we’re all wilting in the most minimal clothing we can get away with. Trousers! Every summer I bring out the old favourites, like my woven leather sandals which were a

You know how sometimes your main fashion inspiration is old pictures of your mum? That’s what I was going for here, my mum in the 70s looked like a Sonny-era Cher with a rad centre parting and flares. I’m not really a flares person, but in summer with a little t-shirt and some clogs or [...]
This is my current favourite outfit at the moment, the mix of navy, cream, khaki and burgundy is low key but not as boring as plain old black or grey. The silk blouse is an old In Wear piece which I wear ALL the time, the khaki jacket is an accidental ahem, ‘aquisition’ from a [...]

Slightly insufferable pose c/o Christmas booze, Lol-hat c/o my sister, Uniqlo shirt, Etro skirt, Chiswick car boot sale boots. 2nd pic: propping myself up with a bottle of wine, naturellement
The O’Carrolls (well the London branch) don’t really stand to tradition, my dad always cooked the festive meal growing up and we had the traditional Christmas [...]
I was going to post something completely different but my image filing system leaves er, a lot to be desired and I landed on a ton of London Fashion Week pics. Topical! I took this in the lifts at One Aldwych after biking all over the shop to see shows. Everyone should own a DVF [...]
You know when you get a concerned phone call from your mum about the lack of posts on your blog that it’s been a while. I’ve just come through the other side of a crazy three-week stint packed of shoots, in-house work, writing assignments and weekends chocka with family visits and most excitingly… weddings!
You may or may not remeber my obsession with shirts which was kicked off by LF Markey and then came to rescue some much-loved summer dresses. At the moment I’m getting into tying my shirts in a knot, not in a retro 50s kind of way, more in a slouchy, relaxed sort of way as [...]
