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.

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.

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.
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.
