OFF THE SHOULDER DRESSES

22 August 2016

Off the shoulder dresses are everywhere this summer.  An exposed décolletage and bare shoulders is one of the most elegant ways to show off glowing, sun-kissed skin so they're perfect for this time of year.  From dramatic ruffles, lace frills and puffy sleeves to cold shoulder cut-outs, slouchy boat necks and ruched peasant-style necklines, there are so many different styles around at the moment.  Here are eighteen of my favourites.

LIKE A BOY

17 August 2016

Occasionally - just occasionally - I wear trousers. I've always been a dresses kinda gal, often skirts, but rarely trousers and when I do wear them sometimes I feel like going all out and pairing with an androgynous top, trainers, a leather jacket and little make-up. This is my kind of casual, boyish dressing.

MAC & WILD

15 August 2016

Last weekend I wandered into Fitzrovia in the sunshine for brunch at the Scottish restaurant Mac & Wild with a friend.  Founded by Scotsman Andy Waugh from The Wild Game Co. after five years of Borough Market stalls, supper clubs and pop ups, Mac & Wild is famed for its 100% wild venison and seasonal game straight from the Scottish Highlands.

HOTEL DE NELL, PARIS

Tucked away in a quiet street in the 9th arrondissement of Paris is Hôtel de NELL, a beautiful five star in a restored 19th century building where we stayed for my birthday.  It's a chic, minimalist masterpiece surrounded by historic architecture near the gothic Saint-Eugène church and Grands Boulevards stores, only a ten minute cab ride away from Gare du Nord.
