today i'm wearing...

Whistles quilted leather jacket

Topshop navy jumper

Ray-Ban black Wayfarers

3.1 Phillip Lim 31 hour bag Smoke

Topshop lace-up heels

Definitely feeling in something of a style rut at the moment, so sorry if it seems like I'm wearing the same thing all the time (that's how it feels to me anyway!) I guess it happens to us all… But I'm making an effort to buy less, buy better, i.e. save up for truly special items rather than splashing out on fast fashion all the time (hence this list…) In the meantime I think I need to go through my wardrobe and think of new ways to wear things. So far all I've come up with is putting this mesh top under everything, but I do love it.

today i want… whistles white dungaree dress

whistles white dungaree dress


So, dungarees… How do we feel about this then? I have to confess I haven't entirely made up my mind. There was a time not so long ago when I was convinced only Alexa Chung could pull them off. Plus I really hate that teenager at a festival look of denim dungarees over a cropped top. So the key to mastering this trend is sophistication. Happily that is exactly what Whistles excels at. I've come to realise that one of the reasons I love this brand so much is that I trust them to make any trend - no matter how initially suspicious - from mules to pool slides, rucksacks to cropped tops - look grown-up and, though I dislike the word, chic. I know that whatever I'm wearing, however dubious the connotations, if it's from Whistles, it's going to look good. That's undoubtedly why an item which on paper sounds at best challenging and at worst hideous - white mixed fabric dungaree dress - and retails for nearly £300, is selling out fast. You've got to hand it to Jane Shepherdson: she really knows what she's doing.

today i'm wearing...

Zara black mules

& Other Stories ostrich crossbody bag

Zara white skinny jeans

Whistles Lennox biker jacket

Happy Easter! Topshop were giving away this lipstick as a thank you for their 2 million Instagram followers the other week, so I thought I'd try it out last night. Love the bright neon pink: the perfect shot of colour in my otherwise monochrome wardrobe.

today i'm wearing...

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli burgundy

Whistles Epaulette white shirt

Zara black mules

Not the best pictures in the world I'm afraid, but wanted to show you this Whistles shirt I snapped up in the sales. Kind of encompasses what I want from my clothes: ultimately classic and wearable, but with a little point of difference. Took it out to the rewardStyle Molton Brown event last night to celebrate 30 years of the brand's bestselling Orange & Bergamot scent. Lovely cocktails, tapas and hand massages = the perfect way to spend a Wednesday evening.

today i want… whistles limited agnete pink bag

whistles agnete pink camera bag


Still kind of obsessed with pink and not 100% sure why. This salmon pink camera bag - beautifully square, understated and with a satisfyingly chunky shoulder strap - moved straight to the top of my wish list as soon as it landed on Whistles' site. Time to spring clean my accessories wardrobe and make space for this little baby.

today i'm wearing...

H&M grey cashmere jumper

& Other Stories black crossbody bag

Zara black mules

Zara white skinny jeans

Ray-Ban black Wayfarers

It's getting to that time of year when the knitwear will have to be retired very soon, so I'm making the most of this cashmere jumper while I still can. At just £40 it's proved one of my best bargains of recent months, although I have to say I'm very much looking forward to no-sweater weather...
