#nextnewin AW14 preview

#nextnewin aw14 preview fashion blogger

When you are invited to a luxury hotel suite by one of your favourite brands, for pampering, a preview and to be painted, you know you're in for a treat. The Next collections have always impressed me and each season I head down to London to nod and approve and swoon over their wearable take on the catwalk trends. And eat lots of yummy mini food too, natch.

Joules striped dress fashion blogger outfit

It's sunny! Let's catch it and bottle it and never let it go! I live right behind a marina and when the sun shines it's a lovely walk along the river, past the fishermen while keeping an eye out for swans. Who wants city life when you have this on your doorstep?

The Language of Love

Spending the weekend with these two has been just lovely! They're my favourites from my time at university, and though I graduated two years ago we still see each other loads. Andy and Hannah were my linchpins in Sheffield; there for me when I needed to giggle, dance and forget about anything that was bothering me.

Urban Outfitters style fashion blogger outfit post

Rummaging through my wardrobe at the weekend, I stumbled across this leopard print satchel which I bought waaaay back in the early days of this little blog! It was when I was obsessed with a certain lady seen carrying a similar one that I thought "I need a leopard print Alexa dupe in my life".

In many ways I am not at all a hoarder - my tastes are fickle and eBay is my best friend. At other times, however, I find myself smiling at the corduroy jacket I'll never again wear, tippex on the lapel but still smelling like that Maximo Park gig when I was 16.

This bag fits under the latter category. I will never, ever, let it go.
