today i bought...

Topshop are currently having a mini sale, so of course I couldn't resist having a little splurge. These amazing jeans were an impulse buy that I'm rather pleased with. I'm a bit in love with the double zips down the sides, and the high waist and subtle leather accents are the cherries on the cake. Best of all, they were reduced from £60 to £30.

Meanwhile, I'm having a bit of a dilemma about this mini laptop case, also from Topshop. I've had my eye on it for some time so had to snap it up when I saw it was reduced from £35 to £20. But the only problem is it really only fits an iPad, and I don't have an iPad... In fact my laptop wouldn't ever have fitted in it, but I was hoping to be able to use it as a clutch, like my turquoise Asos laptop case. Sadly it really can't be used for any other purpose... so do I keep it for its amazing beauty, on the offchance I might get an iPad some day, or take it back? Any thoughts welcome!

today i want... zara cream boucle jacket

Only a couple of weeks ago I had the urge for a lovely cream bouclé jacket, brought on by a particular street style snap and the fact that Clémence Poésy (one of my ultimate style icons) is rather partial to one. I trawled the internet searching for an affordable version but alas, there was nothing even remotely suitable. So imagine my delight to come across the absolute perfect specimen while browsing Zara's website today (pretty much want to buy the whole of Zara at the moment to be honest). It literally is exactly what I've been searching for. Lovely cream colour, lovely bouclé effect, lovely lovely gold zips (oh I do love a zip). I was umming and ahhing about paying the delivery charge (annoying that there's no free delivery over a certain amount), but I think I'll pop into the shop one day this week instead and grab it as an after-work treat. I can't wait.

today i'm inspired by... chanel coco mademoiselle advert

I just saw the teaser version of this amazingly stylish advert on TV and had to share it with you. So here's the whole three minute short film for your viewing pleasure. I love Chanel, I love Paris and I love Keira, so I couldn't fail to love this. Oh how I'd love to sashay around Paris in a nude leather catsuit right about now...

today i want... new look pink lace shirt

Christopher Kane's S/S'11 collection, a vision in neon lace and laser-cut leather, was quite a shock to the system for those of us who could barely remember any colour other than camel. But as scary as it first may seem, neon is in many ways easier to wear than some staid block colours. The best example of this is pink. I've spoken before about how wary I am when it comes to wearing pink, because I can't seem to get the picture of grown women in baby pink hoodies out of my mind (yuck). Neon pink, however, is a whole different ball game. It's the sexy older sister of sickly sweet baby pink and could be just what you're looking for to perk up an outfit of grey, black or nude. Enter this amazing Kane-alike shirt from New Look. The transparent lace lets you show just the right amount of skin (again avoiding little girl connotations), while the vivid neon colour is just perfect. Team it with grey ponte trousers and sky-high heels for an athletic look, or slip on a black pleated skirt and add a contrasting bright nail varnish. It's selling out fast online, but at this price it's surely worth a trip to the shops.

today i love... perfume

I'm definitely one of those people who doesn't feel quite dressed without a spritz of perfume. Walking through a waft of fragrant air just before you leave the house can definitely help get your day off to a good start. And I love the excitement of finding a new favourite scent to add to your arsenal. So I just thought I'd share with you my personal selection.

Marc Jacobs Daisy, far left, demands a summery day with its sweet but heady scent, while Ghost Deep Night, second from left, is a dark sensual fragrance best suited to nighttime. Calvin Klein Beauty, third from left, is my current perfume of choice: fresh, feminine and universally wearable. Another of my year-round go-to scents is Stella Nude, third from right: very airy, very light and suited to any occasion. The same goes for the Chloé perfume, second from right, which is probably my number one perfume of all time: rose-tinted, romantic and fresh but strong. And finally my first ever fragrance and still one of the best: Chanel Chance, far right, a musky and sophisticated delight in a bottle.

today i bought...

Apparently I love turquoise at the moment. I fell in love with this amazing Asos laptop case the other day (which I will be using as a clutch), and featured it in 5th March's "today I'd love to wear". And what do you know? It perfectly matches my new favourite nail varnish, Topshop nails in Zenith. Today I also snapped up another scented candle (bit obsessed with them right now) from John Lewis, called Seagrass Linen. Lovely.

today i'm inspired by... columbine smille

I know, I know, I'm still going on about Swedish stylist Columbine Smille (visit her blog here). But HOW amazing is this outfit?! Now that the weather is finally warming up a little, this all-white ensemble with perfect flashes of colour sums up exactly how I'd like to look. I especially love the sleeveless leather jacket, which will apparently arrive in H&M stores in late April. That's one for the wishlist, then.

today i want... zara yellow clutch

If, like me, you're not quite convinced by bright colours just yet (especially when you can still see your own breath in the mornings), then I present to you this amazing canary yellow clutch as the perfect way to ease yourself into the trend. Clashing orange trousers with a turquoise top and a pink jacket is the preserve of the super-confident, but anyone can carry a nice bright clutch. I love the fact that this baby is nice and roomy, made of soft leather and with a delicate (and detachable) chain strap. It would be perfect against a nude or blush pink dress, or perhaps teamed with a simple navy jumper and jeans. If, however, you're ready to go the whole hog and embrace head-to-toe colour, check out my favourite high street brights here.
