today i love… the monday wish list



I love how the broderie fabric of this skirt immediately makes the sheer panel less racy than it would otherwise be, and yet it's still a lot more interesting than most black pencil skirts. Perfect dressed down with a white t-shirt for work or up with a racer-back cropped top at night.

I received a mini sample of this bath oil in the Space NK beauty box I indulged in a couple of weeks ago, and I have literally never smelled anything better. Seriously: best smell ever. And that's coming from a woman with a serious scented candle addiction. A tiny splash of this in your bath and you will be transported to the best home spa you could ever have wished for. All you need to go with it is a crisp glass of wine and a magazine. Bliss.

All the best products from my number one make-up brand all packaged up in the perfect gift set. Is it OK to buy myself a present for no reason?

Still obsessed with H&M home. My latest interiors phase is glass domes over scented candles. This one's ideal.

I know, who'd have thought it - I still can't get enough of ugly sandals. These white Birkenstocks are pure orthopaedic footwear perfection.

It's very rare that I like anything pink. It's definitely my least favourite colour. But very occasionally I see an item that makes me change my mind. I have to say this shirt has totally won me over. I think it's the luxury of the silk and the classic nature of the design that stops it from being too girly, or silly, and instead just makes it a really, really great shirt. Sold.

today i'm wearing...

Topshop white Jamie jeans

Topshop black three strap sandals

Whistles quilted leather jacket

Alexander Wang Prisma tote

Double denim is quite tricky to pull off; nobody wants to look like Britney and Justin circa 1999. I'm not brave enough to try full blue-on-blue, but I am very partial to teaming a denim shirt with white or black jeans. Oh and leather. Always leather.

today i'm wearing...

Topshop black Jamie jeans

Zara quilted leather slides

& Other Stories ostrich effect crossbody bag

Topshop white airtex bomber

I'm trying to wear flats more often to give my knees a bit of a break (turns out wearing heels all the time isn't that great for you - who knew?!) Luckily it's not difficult when you have these deliciously ugly/beautiful slides to turn to. They go with everything and somehow make any outfit look better.

today i love… i love mr mittens

No, that's not a typo… I Love Mr Mittens is an Australian knitwear brand which has caught my eye in recent weeks. Kind of seasonally inappropriate, but my fashion whims recognise no such practical bounds. I love the idea of a label that only does one thing, and does it really well. The brand's supersized sweaters, beanies and scarves are hand knitted to order in a rainbow of colours. You know I'm a knitwear fanatic and the more oversized, the better, so needless to say I'm salivating to get my hands on one of these delicious beauties. Two drawbacks: the prices ain't cheap (sob) and neither's the international delivery. But hey, maybe I'll start saving now and will be able to afford one of them (preferably the cropped sweater) by the time it gets cold enough again to wear it. Sounds like a plan to me.

I Love Mr Mittens cropped cable knit

I Love Mr Mittens cropped cable knit / $395 AUD (approx. £205)

I Love Mr Mittens Rose big sweater

I Love Mr Mittens the Rose big sweater / $525 AUD (approx. £272)

today i love… the monday wish list



My local H&M recently reopened complete with a brand new Home section and I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty difficult for me not to buy absolutely everything. For the moment though I'll settle for this gorgeous tarnished lantern.

Looking for the perfect gift for your friend/sister/mother? Step forward this indulgent selection box of beauty classics, including a 1-minute facial, a deep cleansing mask and a facial spritz, priced at less than half its value.

It's that time of year when we can start entertaining thoughts of white dresses without having to worry too much about freezing our extremities. This is the perfect answer to any summer party dilemmas (or, in a dream world, the perfect dress in which to stroll along a Caribbean beach carrying your sandals in one hand and a mojito in the other… sigh).

Talking of holidays, bikini season is surely imminently upon us. I love this laser cut beauty in classic black: flashes just the right amount of skin.

These shoes are a true classic. Right now you can snap them up at 55% less than their original price. Thank the shopping gods for the Outnet.

Love rose gold + love simple minimalist jewellery + love an under £30 price tag = sold.
