Minimising the number of shoes that I own is on my to do list…says no-one ever! Even though I find myself spending an extra 10 minutes getting ready looking for shoes! Somehow, they always seem to be buried under pairs I don’t wear.
So I got to thinking about this Summer and how I can avoid the shoe hunt! My answer… *drum roll* creating and sticking to a what I call a “Summer Minimal Shoe Wardrobe”. Does this involve getting rid of all my beautiful shoes?! Of course not! Continue reading
I’ve found that when we wear black we tend to stick to the same outfits and don’t really give the rest of our wardrobe a chance. If you checked me out on Instagram lately I’ve challenged everybody to wear bright colours instead.
So what do we do when black isn’t an option? Try wearing two bold shades together for a fresh Summer look. Ok, it may be tough and I’m the first to admit that black is my go-to, but the great feedback I’ve received from the challenge really makes it worth a try!

All you need is a simple fit guide to tell you what to look for when you shop and I’ve put one together for you *wink*.

Many women I’ve spoken to like the idea of print, but don’t know how to choose ones that are right for them. Or, where they have managed to pluck up the courage to buy printed items, they never wear them.
Prints can be tricky, but there are standard prints that never date like animal print (oooh leopard is my favourite), polka dots (also another favourite) and stripes. If you’re not sure but want to try prints, these prints are fool-proof and a great place to start!
For those of you who want to experiment with other prints, my guide to prints is right here! Continue reading
Spring is my favourite time of year. I love all the colourful flowers, bright blue skies and the warm sunshine. Although I love fashion, I’m not a fan of breaking the bank to look the part. It’s not about buying a new wardrobe every time a new season comes along. For me it’s about adding a few items to spruce it up and add versatility to the wardrobe you already own.

Coco Chanel had it right – “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life”. I personally remember a couple of my out of the ordinary haircuts. All coinciding with significant life changes, I’m sure you can relate!
