& Other Stories black mules

Whistles Helena crepe trousers

Larsson & Jennings CM silver watch

& Other Stories asymmetric cream top

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli burgundy medium

Have to admit I'm kind of relieved this heatwave is pretty much over. Don't get me wrong, I love the heat when I'm in a bikini on a beach. Working in an office without air con, however, leaves me craving rain. Plus as a minimalist dresser it gets difficult to find different creative ways of wearing loose-fitting black dresses. Pretty glad to be back in my trusty Whistles trousers, albeit pepped up with a little bit of asymmetry via this reduced & Other Stories top (winner).

today i love... the saturday wish list



If you still haven't got the perfect classic leather biker in your wardrobe, then this Topshop beauty is a great inexpensive option. I particularly love the rusty orange silk lining.

I've heard great things about this perfume, and if the scent is as sophisticated and complex as the Byredo candles I have, then the hype is justified. It's certainly not cheap, but surely the lure of having that beautiful bottle on your dressing table alone is worth it.

In this heatwave a loose silky slip dress is just what the doctor ordered (especially if you're of the minimalist persuasion like me and recoil in horror from flouncy floral frocks). This & Other Stories beauty fits the bill perfectly and what's more, it's not actually silk so is machine washable = always a winner.

The only problem with decorating your flat entirely in white is that white curtains don't really block out the light. To be honest it doesn't bother me that much, but occasionally if I wake up early I need to put an eye mask on to fall back asleep. At the moment I'm using a navy British Airways one which unfortunately leaves blue marks on my pillows, so I can't wait for this lovely white silk version to arrive on my doorstep instead.

5. French Connection large pillar candle holder / £12.50 (reduced from £25)
There's little more chic than marble when it comes to interiors. This beautiful candle holder would look divine in any room and is especially attractive at half price...

You can always rely on Whistles to create the best bags on the high street. This buckled satchel looks way above its price tag and would pep up any summer outfit.

today i love... cheerz polaroid 3000 box

cheerz polaroids


There's something special about actually holding a photo in your hand in this digital age. That's why instant prints like Polariod and Instax have taken on something of a cult status in recent years. But as you may know if you've looked into it, instant memories don't come cheap. Besides, in this age of taking 100 photos to get the perfect snap, having only one shot can result in wasting your precious film on a blurry finger-over-the-lens moment. Luckily, Cheerz has teamed up with Polaroid to give us the perfect solution, and they very kindly let me try it out. For £15 you can choose 18 of your existing photos to be printed on Polaroids, complete with that unmistakable authentic sepia tone, and shipped out to you. You can even choose to have text printed on the bottom if you like (I kept mine blank to be scribbled on in Sharpie instead). The perfect compromise between old and new, if you ask me.

today i'm wearing...

Isabel Marant x HM black blazer

Givenchy Obsedia crossbody bag

Larsson & Jennings CM silver watch

House of Fraser Mango white halterneck dress

Topshop black strappy heels

If you'd have asked me a couple of years ago, I'd have said I never really wore dresses. Mainly because I worried that they were too girly, too fussy, or didn't allow sufficient outfit options. But these days I find myself wearing dresses all the time, especially during the summer. Why? Firstly they are comfortable: nobody wants a restrictive high waisted skirt in the heat. Secondly there are so many styles out there that I can always find something sufficiently minimalist. And as for outfit options, all it takes is a few killer accessories and nobody will care if you've worn it before. House of Fraser kindly let me choose my favourite from their impressive selection of dresses and I gravitated straight towards this Mango beauty: it's simple, chic and timeless but with a little twist via the unique neckline. Perfect for any summer event.
