Remember when black and blue was the Worst Thing? Mixing your neutrals was on a par with going at your molars with a toothpick wa-aay back but now it’s delish. In Copenhagen I was working a snuggly mix of black and navy which was perfect for the cold, crisp weather there. I love a nice [...]
Every once in a while I get in a funk with cycling, this time round I’m blaming the neverending winter (for this and everything else) and a lingering cold. I just can’t muster up the will to get on my bike right now. I’m happy to let this happen -peaks and troughs and all that [...]
A Topshop collaboration just before Fashion Week feels like a tradition now. This season we’re being treated to another helping of JW Anderson, and it seems he’s gone all school vibez. There’s a nice play between ‘good girl’ pieces like the revisited loafers and pleated skirt with a subversive, rebellious spirit that would have you [...]
Painting my nails is one of the work rewards I give myself, kind of like a dog I operate on a strict system of treats and rewards for work done. I’ll paint one coat of varnish for writing 200wds/reeling off some emails or doing some annoying task like sending out invoices. It’s a pathetically necessary [...]
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.

This being nearly Spring and all that, I’m really feeling the idea (mayhaps not [...]
Summer means a whole new wardrobe, I’ve unpacked all my dresses, tops and skirts for sunny weather and my room is looking a little like Oxford St Primark at the end of a Saturday. Except it’s mostly charity shop bargains and Uniqlo, natch.
Here’s some garden-based pics of the shoes I’m wearing at the moment, [...]
Sounding a bit Alan Partridge, but the last week has been a total mixed bag. I’ve been back at home, trying to get into my freelance routine again, heading out to press days and drinking lots of coffee.
I don’t usually cycle when it’s raining heavily as I don’t like turning up looking like a [...]

Street style at London Fashion Week confirmed the statement trouser as the style choice for the workhorse crew. The fact that you’re wearing tailored trousers screams ‘I’m here for srs bizness!’ but choosing a pair with a wacked out print confirms your fashion credentials. Teamed with a jumper [...]
Tweed or bouclé jackets never really went away, Chanel’s classic version has ensured that the nubbly trophy jacket is never far from the catwalk. This season though tweed jackets are really having a moment, tapping into the revamped retro trend. Nearly every high-street retailer and designer has produced a version for the season, so I [...]
