Long over short

I’ve always been one to love wearing long tops over short shorts and vice versa, short over long. I’ve killed two birds with one stone in this outfit. Wearing a long 3.1 phillip lim vest over these lace trimmed shorts and my short leather over said top. I like it when you see a glimpse of something underneath. It’s especially nice when it’s somethig pretty like these lace detailed shorts. Small details like this make an outfit interesting. I thought it nice to add a splash of colour by introducing my red celine trio bag. Pure accident ithat i was stood next to a matching red letter box ha ha….

It finally came around. The company style blog awards took place last night in London. Greeted with champers,cocktails and a room full of very happy bloggers the night moved on to the ceremony where I’m thrilled to say I won the Highly commended blog award for ‘best personal style’. I think my mouthed dropped to the floor when they announced my name. They had received over 20,000 votes just for the final and much more in blog nominations since they launched the 2013 awards. I was more then happy. I can’t thank you all enough for nominating and voting for me again and again. I was the proudest woman last night. Took me back to my competitive track days-stepping up on podium for a medal. Felt great and I was quite overcome with the lovely messages I received from so many of you. I have lots of pics on my instagram here as I didn’t take my camera to the awards. These outfit pics were taken just outside my hotel on the way to the event… Wore head to toe black-in 3.1 Phllip lim and DVF.

Black Out

I used to wear an awful lot of black- not coz I’m a misery but purely because I think it  looks cool with any colour you wanna combine it with. It’s also great for accessorising. Some might say it’s a safe option.Safe or not, it’s a great look for any woman day or night. Having key pieces in black is a must for me. Wear it for all seasons year after year. That’s not safe-that’s savy !!!

Off Duty

Casual off duty dressing in these distressed boyfriend jean cut off’s and a chunky knit. I threw a parka over for the evening chill. Wearing one of my favourite pairs of shorts without needing to be on holiday puts a smile on my face. Hoping this good weather stays with us for a while yet

Details:Tied in a knot

Laid back monday outfit after a dressed up dinner and drinks weekend in London. Wore my distressed boyfriend jeans with layering of vest, shirt and jumper tied to the front. Kinda matched the knotted front strap to these gorgeous dusty pink platforms. Love this detail, reminds me of something from the 50’s… I was lucky enough to choose these open toe platforms from Daniel footwear. I also think they’ll be perfect with a cute dress or pair of high waisted shorts… Hmmm outfit inspirations!!!!

Thanks to Daniel footwear for the platforms.
