The current F&F advert for Tesco clothing sums up how I came to own this wonderfully grown up Stormtrooper T shirt. I was quite happily doing my weekly shop many moons ago (before I discovered the joys of Ocado) when I stumbled upon this bright red tee in the kid’s section. It’s age 10-11, which always makes me feel a bit good. It’s ok to feel good about fitting into children’s clothes right? Or maybe it’s just the most ridiculous level of vanity sizing. Anyway, I went in to the supermarket to get food and came out with a cool kid’s t shirt, and I’m very happy about it. Continue reading “Stormtrooper Tee”
And just like that, the sunshine comes back! After Monday’s post in full winter get-up, it’s suddenly summer again and I went for a stroll around Kensington gardens in the glorious sunshine. Days like these are my favourite, it’s always such a shame when I have to go back to the office after my lunch break. Continue reading “Return of the Sunshine (and the Pleated Velvet Skirt)”

I’m sure you all already know, but a quick look into the history of the H&M informed me that Cos, Weekday, Monki and more are all part of the brand’s family. Every day’s a school day.

This luscious green velvet skirt has appeared on the blog a couple of times before. I’ve mentioned that it’s a little too big, and I usually style it by folding the waistband and tucking it into a thick waist belt. Here I’ve gone for a more relaxed option, wearing it without a belt and layering a simple sweater over the top. Continue reading “Double Velvet”
Today is officially the first day of spring, huzzah! Sadly it’s pretty grey and miserable outside at the moment, so I’ll share this outfit from last week when the sun was shining. I first posted about this skirt a couple of months ago. I can’t believe I’ve not worn it since! Continue reading “Spring velvet and Leopard Faux Fur”
I’m wearing 2 new pieces today from my shopping expeditions over the Christmas break. The rest of my outfit is some age old pieces that I still love and wear regularly. Mixing the new with the old: it’s what I do!
