A recent look shot on the rooftop of The Boro Hotel a few weekends ago. I actually had picked out this khaki green jacket for Fashion Week, but it ended up being FAR to cold to wear it (I wore a longer version instead) and so it got it’s very wear the week after. I love pieces like this because I just know I will have them forever! Simple & understated, but something which will never go out of style.


Dear Monday, thanks for having the word ‘mon’ in you.
That’s french for ‘mine’, incase you weren’t aware, Monday.
It makes me think of you more as ‘my day’ and frankly that sounds
like a much more promising start to the week.”

I really do believe that it’s so important to actually look forward to Mondays. I know that this is 100% easier said than done, but I also know that it’s 100% possible if you truly love what your doing. And why exactly would you be doing anything else? Yes, we all have to do certain things to get by, but promise me that if you’re not jumping out of bed every Monday morning, that you’ll start to make small changes each week to ensure that you will be very soon. Promise? I’m not going to go into a big ‘life is short’ speech but at the end of the day, it really is. We all only have one go at making the most of every single day and being as happy as we can possibly be. Today is a particularly exciting one for me and a Monday I’ve been working towards for a while now. I promise to go into a little more detail next week when I get back from San Francisco, but take it from me that when you look forward to a Monday, things start to get a lot more interesting!

Have a fantastic week!

Stylishly Yours,

    I am loving belted jackets at the moment but fell into the trap of wearing a spring one last week – it was freezing! Big mistake haha. Loving this look and that Givenchy bag is just so timeless!

    Great post and just have to say that even your energy is inspiring – which is why I watched one of your videos and instantly wrote a post after weeks of nothing. So thanks for keeping positive and look forward to much more varied and inspired content 😊
