This is what I’m calling my fancy outfit, aka vaguely more dressed up than usual. I’m really really into how my Nike Frees go with anything, I’d usually wear this outfit with smarter shoes, like my silver ones, but it totally works with the trainers and gives it a more modern look.

No word of a lie, I’ve been wearing this outfit pretty much permanently for the last two weeks. With obvious underneath layer changes for hygiene reasons bien sur. Finding an outfit that works and sticking to it is so much easier than rifling through bags and trying to out something new together every day, just [...]
I’m doing a bit of a pre-tour sort of my room, packing away the things I wont need and getting rid of a few bits while I’m at it. I’ve obviously been planning my ‘tour essentials’ in my head for a few weeks. Don’t even get my started on my ‘capsule essential must-have beauty items’. [...]
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 charity shop find. They’re one of those things that someone most likely bought back [...]
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 [...]

This weekend was family time as we had my uncle, his partner and cousin over from France. Whenever we have anyone come visit it’s always an excuse to go for a walk around Greenwich or the Docks, it’s so pretty [...]
I love maps, I think it’s a family thing, my grandad always loved to get a map out. There’s something reassuring about placing yourself and also just from an aesthetic point of view, all that sky blue is dreamy. THe map above is a WWII silk map of Italy that hangs in my bedroom.
On 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 [...]
