24.03.2017- Most Wanted: KITRI

Friday, 24 March 2017

With the arrival of the new season, I'm sure that I'm not the only one who is eager to invest in some fresh fashion favourites. I'm always on the lookout for new places to invest in some style staples, and have recently come across a real hero brand- step forward, KITRI:
Odette Petal Cuff Shirt, £65/Roland Pinstripe Jumpsuit, £125/Manon Ivory Scarf Tunic, £85/Deborah Lace Panel Top, £75, all KITRI

Offering simple, wonderfully stylish essentials, KITRI is a real gem of a discovery. This petal cuff shirt is a versatile basic which would lend itself perfectly to so many styling options, and a real holiday wardrobe hero too, don't you think? The Roland pinstripe jumpsuit is a fabulously smart alternative to trousers and a shirt, and again is one of those brilliant investment buys which would pay long term wardrobe dividends. Capturing a perfectly minimalist vibe, this tunic is another great option for a work as well as a weekend wardrobe, and I love the slightly longer line too. Right at the top of my shopping list post payday is this lace panel top- the stuff that style dreams are made of!

22.03.2017- On the Menu: Plum + Spilt Milk

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Whilst I've got a restaurant bucket list which I'm working through at a slow but steady pace, sometimes it's lovely to stumble upon some new foodie destinations by complete accident. Last Saturday, prior to an afternoon trip to the theatre and a leisurely potter around St. Pancras, my Mum and I stopped off at a spur of the moment brunch spot- Plum + Spilt Milk:

Offering impeccably presented modern British cuisine as delivered by Mark Sargeant, the menus are wonderfully varied, offering a plethora of options to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters. We ordered from the extensive Saturday brunch selection, and needless to say that both of us were well and truly impressed by our choices- smoked salmon and scrambled eggs (Mum) and crab and avocado on toast (me). Both dishes were delicious, cooked with care and prepared with the freshest of ingredients so absolutely full of flavour. To finish, I ordered the dark chocolate mousse, served with pralines and pecans- as delicious as it was photogenic! Needless to say, I'm already planning a return trip to Plum + Spilt Milk- especially as the menu is very purse friendly and the service absolutely impeccable. I can't recommend it enough! 

Where are your favourite brunch destinations?

20.03.2017- What I Wore Today #296

Monday, 20 March 2017

I don't know about you, but as I've grown older (and tried to downsize my wardrobe!), I've become a real fan of fuss free dressing. Practicality always wins out in my book these days, particularly when it comes to pulling together a selection of go-to staples which I know will work in almost any combination. Whilst I'm still a long way away from mastering anything near what could be classified as a capsule wardrobe, over the last few months I've been regularly reaching for a selection of essentials on a really regular basis:

Coat- Marks and Spencer 
Blouse- Zara 
Trousers- ASOS 
Trainers- c/o Boden 
Bag- Skinnydip London 

You can't ever really go wrong with basic block colours, can you? This coat has been a regular fixture in my wardrobe for a fair few years now, and it's a staple which I always find myself digging out at this time of the year- a real investment buy! Speaking of staples, I more or less live in these trousers from ASOS- especially as I'm making more of a concerted effort to avoid denim during the week. Finally, this blouse from Zara is a piece which I picked up towards the end of last year, and again is something which I've been reaching for at least once a week over the last few weeks- a real classic in the making! 

Which wardrobe essentials do you keep reaching for?
