Fashionable Friday: Navy and Yellow

September 14, 2012 § Leave a comment

I have a folder in my iPhoto titled ‘Outfits I Love’ where I regularly save images of outfits I want to emulate. I’ve noticed that lately a lot of the outfits I’ve saved have featured either navy or yellow or a combo of the two. Only problem is I own very little of either colour! I’ll definitely be looking for some navy and yellow pieces for the upcoming summer.

Yellow is a colour that I’ve never worn much of, mostly because I’ve never found yellow pieces that I’ve loved, but this seasons crop of gorgeous colours are changing that! Navy is a great alternative to black, just as chic but a little more interesting. And navy and yellow together? So gorgeous and fresh for the warmer weather.

Navy and yellow work well in interiors as well…

Dreamy Wardrobes

April 23, 2012 § 3 Comments

One of my dreams would be to have an entire room to dedicate to clothes, shoes and bags. Right now I would be happy to have even a small walk in wardrobe! My current wardrobe is a tiny built in and although well organised and edited, it is OVERFLOWING! I love to have a place for everything so my wardrobe really frustrates me! But until I have my dream space, I will drool over other girls amazing closets…

.1.2.3.4.5.

┬áIt’s all the gorgeous small details in these rooms that I love the most. Shopping bags as art, stunning light fixtures, matching hangers, not to mention the cute clothes and accessories. Completely self indulgent but I don’t care! -C x

On The Seventh Day She Shopped…

Today I had a day off from work so I decided to do a little bit of shopping. A little bit of shopping turned into a lot of shopping and here are the spoils!

Here’s what’s new in Mag Land, House&Garden, Marie Claire and Belle. I inhale magazines for breakfast, can’t get enough.

Happy Hump Day! -C x

Winter Shopping

February 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’ve been cheating on fashion with homewares for quite a while now but my passion for clothes will always be strong. Today I went shopping to have a look at whats new in the wonderful world of clothes and was seriously inspired. This years winter offerings have got me very excited for the cooler weather to hit. This piece in particular hopped very quickly into my grasp and I can’t wait to wear it this winter.

This incredibly soft, slouchy, cotton pullover will be perfect with jeans or shorts and is the perfect trans-seasonal piece.
Now because sometimes, when he’s very very bored, Mr C reads my blog, I’m not going to tell you where it’s from (or how much it cost!). But I will say, Sarah-Jane and Heidi did a fab job with this little beauty! -C x
