January to easily represents the bleak recognition of the aftermath: The twinkly lights are gone, the weather is foul and last months credit card bills are circling like starving carrion.

But the first signs of spring are out there – the first glimpse of snowdrops, the first hint of cotton clothing appearing on the high street.

H&M have some impressive staples to offer – on trend blouses, softly hanging silk shirts, high waisted tie trousers and easy wear long sleeved dresses…

It’s temptation – but it’s sensible temptation.

So here’s the thing – weather in London, in September – particularly this year – is unpredictable.  If the sun does make an appearance there’s the flash of late summer burn, but just as easily the sun can disappear in an instant to be replaced by a cold wind and threatening clouds.  What to do? One solution are the 2-in-one coats from Arket.  Surprisingly simply yet remarkably flexible they’re an unfussy solution to an autumn – and potentially winter – dilemma.

The clever puffa-slash-underjacket comes in a choice of long sleeves…

I will be trying both the mens and the womens before making a decision.

Springing Ahead..


Spotted! – The first Snowdrops.

Let’s be honest, haute couture is something we observe and aspire to but more often than not it’s the High Street where we spend our money.  Thankfully in the UK the two are virtually joined at the hip, fused together in taste, habits, socks and everything else, meaning that many of the clothes available to us mere mortals are just as sleek and lush as their designer relatives.  Take these from the quintessentially British Jigsaw: Following the trends and perfect for Spring…the blue diffused silk flower top and the purple digital print floral scarf.1014005_1 7750541_1

Combined together they sing the song of bold pattern and colour clashes.  Add the precision cut Melton coat and a classic satchel..

Plus a pair of 3/4 length, loose boyfriend jeans and pair of emerald green kitten heels…


And it’s a rich thread of satisfaction…
