It goes something like this....

 Christmas is just around the corner, and the prospect of handing over the credit card to top up your wardrobe can feel a tad painful (presents, food and sparkly things to buy). 

But trust me, foolproof staples with an injection of this seasons fabric 'velvet' thrown into the mix, will work hard for you throughout the coming months, and beyond.

And about the velvet good stuff? Well, those Topshop boots may have just sneaked into my closet!

NUDE APPEAL | STYLE STEAL





When Chloe sent those long-limbed fillies down the runway during Paris Fashion Week SS16 wearing the most versatile sandal of the season, I was smitten.

 Feeling somewhat obsessed/obliged to go search out something similar, shop tactics were applied, and a nod to the catwalk popped up at Mango

  Currently on sale, easy on the eye and pushing all the right buttons, I reckon they're a fair game for a Chloe craving.....

Is it just me, or is the weather majorly mercurial? One minute arctic winds and downpours, and the next sub tropical (quick, get on the sun lounger and slap on the high factor).

 So, putting the current state of weather affairs aside, I've decided it's Summer and the sun WILL shine.....It's official.

  Now, with my mindset fixed on the promise of hot days and blue skies on the horizon, let's get down and beachy.

'Wardrobe fact'....I have a lot of stripes.

 Probably considered the best closet invention since the wheel, stripes will always be a perennial must have. Falling anywhere between old school and super cool, stripes appeared everywhere as a fashion favorite again this season.

 Cost per wear?.... they're worth their weight in any colour.

6 FIX | KHAKI KIT





1: Tank £30 American Vintage | 2: Sunglasses £15 AJ Morgan |
 3: Track Pants £89.02 Bassike | 4: Liquid Buff £13.80 RGB Cosmetics |
 5: Tote £450 Saint Laurent | 6: Leather Slides £130 ATP Atelier...


---------------------


If it's to be believed, the arctic freeze has done a midnight flit, and the weather man has predicted temperatures of  20° plus by the weekend. Who'd have thought it?..... All of us, that's who.

Mastering the art of yoyo climate change dressing calls for a more practical approach, I like to call it subtle summer luxe. Yes, its tempting to pull out that little holiday number when the temps rise...but let's remind ourselves, this is Great Britain, and something tells me it will have many more surprises up it's sartorially rolled meteorological sleeves.

So, without further ado, I'm channeling summer (at least for the next few days) by endorsing my current khaki obsession.

 Whilst the heat is on, upgraded track pants by Bassike hit the bottom note, along with a perfectly formed minimal leather slider. Throw on without doubt, the softest t-shirt ever, and let's HIGH FIVE those weather gods.
