Jeff and I recently celebrated four (!!!) years together, and to mark the occasion we treated ourselves to afternoon tea at Sketch.
I love it when my American friends visit London, and recently my friend Jacky (who I’ve known since 2005 – two thousand and five!!) was here for a few days between other UK adventures. Not about to miss a chance to catch up, I ended up spending an entire weekend traipsing around with her.
Any excuse to dress up is an excuse I’m willing to take, and Saturday night dinner is always a good one! Recently for a night out I channeled my inner 1970s for a look featuring fringe on fringe with fringe (i.e. bangs, for my American friends)!
Spring in London is always a solid combination of it’s too warm for a jacket in the sunshine and it’s freezing in the shade. So for a recent Sunday lunch date with a friend I layered up with a cami, ripped jeans, trainers and a denim jacket, polished off with a topknot to hide the two-day-old hair.
This is a weekend or casual office look with white jeans by ASOS, a red floaty top by Zara, black heeled boots, classic black leather jacket and a leopard print handbag.

The other day I received a survey email from Topshop asking me all about blazers, when I wear them, etc. Apparently blazer jackets are going to be a trend item this spring, and I’ve already got two in my closet that I never wear. And I had two other ones till I donated them in February …
I’m really excited for spring – and warmer weather! – so I’ve started to go through my wardrobe to put together outfits to wear when the weather is right. First up: this simple monochrome look.
Jeff and I have been doing the konmari method of decluttering, and when I was going through my clothes I came across these jeans at the back of the closet my heart skipped a beat. I’ve had these boyfriend jeans in my closet for well over a year now, and I’d bought these and been super excited …
