Clocks vs Cold

I was looking up the date of the clocks going forward when I came across all these suggestions of what do do with the extra hour of light (as if we need help but anyway), they were pretty lame suggestions such as go to the park, have a bbq, go for an evening walk, sit in the garden, hang your washing outside..etc etc. however, clearly when jotting down these suggestions down no consideration went into the fact that the clocks will change but the weather won’t!

So we thinking, It’s nearly April, the Clocks have changed, lets wear Spring/Summer clothes and pretend it’s all ok.  Unfortunately the temp is what we are really feeling and the fact that it’s averaged about 10 degrees over the last two weeks hardly has me reaching for my spring dresses. So if you feeling so over that winter coat but like me are ridiculously sensitive to the chilly temps, then layer up to conceal the fact that you still in winter mode. Put that padded coat in the loft (if you dare), bring out your light weight jacket, but under that layer up. Starting with a thermal camisole, then your shirt or long sleeve top of choice, then the thicker jumper (sleeves pulled up) or a cosy long cardi or a jacket which is roomy enough for all those layers then chuck on the Trench/light weigh Mac. Make sure the layers are all different lengths and visible, otherwise you may just look puffy…

Sexy Summer Flats

If you’ve got great clothes but don’t have the shoes to match, there’s really no point. Shoes can ruin a look completely. I’m generally more comfortable i flats, especially in summer (surprising for me as I haven’t been blessed in the height department).  Here are some of my chosen shoes for summer that will take your feet from same old to saucy. There are some unexpected styles creeping back in, do not mock the Birkenstock as they have come back a lot cooler and chicer than they were in their past. I will certainly be investing in a pair this summer! Pick your pair for chill-in, cruise-in or shmooz-in for under £150!

Men in the Mix

I think a lot of people think that men dont have many options when it comes to fashion, granted in the bottoms department there isnt more than trousers or shorts but in this day and age there is so much out there for men, its a really exciting time for mens fashion and you definitely do not have to look boring. Experiment and explore different styles.  I think men in general dont like to leave their comfort zones or dont have the energy for shopping and getting some style advice for what cuts and styles suit their body shapes. Men like women also have different body shapes and should dress accordingly. Some inspiration below for your next shopping trip! Too lazy to go out?

 TOP TIP: When buttoning up a blazer the general rule is to do up the button that is closest to your belly button, doing up button holes comes and go’s in fashion but if you wish to be correct then that is the rule to go by.
