Summer Textures

Summer Textures

The calendar says summer but the forecast says spring. For those of us not living close to the equator, dealing with the constantly changing summer temperatures can be a tad problematic when […]

The Long and Short of It

The Long and Short of It

When you come across a designer with a background in civil engineering you know you’re about to wear something amazing. That was exactly the case when I tried on this stunning two-piece […]

Notting Hill

Notting Hill

Pastel fronted buildings, grand Victorian houses, corner pubs and quiet streets, there are many sides to any city and if Notting Hill is anything to go by take it that […]

Blush

Blush

Blush pink is everywhere, well it is the Pantone colour of the year, and I’ve decided to stop trying to avoid it especially when I came across these amazing leather shorts […]

Trinity

Trinity

As cover-ups go there’s nothing cooler than a kimono. Add pleats and a dash of peachy nude and suddenly things get a whole lot cooler. It’s the trinity of summer wear: the […]

Platform

Platform

I’m sliding into summer and couldn’t be happier to let the sun touch my pedicured toes. I seriously need some sun. Platform slides are everywhere this summer and I’ve been keeping […]

Sports Luxe

Sports Luxe

As much as I love denim there are times when I need to change things up. Especially in the warmer weather when skinny jeans start to cling. That’s where jogger trousers […]

The LWD

The LWD

The Little Black Dress will forever be close to my heart but if there’s a second place it goes to it’s cousin, the Little White Dress, especially in summer. I know […]

6 of the Best Coffee Bars in Zurich

6 of the Best Coffee Bars in Zurich

As someone who requires round the clock coffee and appreciates a smooth cappuccino I’m happy to share my favourite coffee spots in Zurich. Babu’s Bakery & Coffeehouse Babu’s is located on […]

Urban Textures

Urban Textures

There’s more than one side to any city and that certainly holds true for my adopted home Zurich. Feeling a bit wanderlust this weekend I strayed further afield to the west of the […]

Off Duty Lace Up

Off Duty Lace Up

The lace-up trend continues to have firm hold on our footwear and it’s taking over the rest of our body too with details aplenty on trousers, dresses, tops, bodysuits and […]

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Shady

I like chilled weekends. I need them. Thankfully Zurich is a pretty chilled place. This past Saturday we spent the day by the lake, dipping toes in the water, staring jealously […]

Babouche

Babouche

Super flat, thin soled and pointy toed, let me introduce you to the babouche. Ba-bouche, I love saying that word….(go on, say it). Vogue’s ‘it’ shoe silhouette for 2016 isn’t […]

Cold Shoulder

Cold Shoulder

With the days warming up it’s finnaalllly time to get our skin out and let it breathe… and if there’s one area that’s worth showing off it’s a bronzed shoulder […]

Pretty Little Lace Things

When it comes to certain parts of my closet I’m a creature of habit. I find a style I like and pretty much stick to it. It’s only recently that I’ve switched from padded, […]

Nautical Neutral

Nautical Neutral

Nautical stripes, wall to wall sunshine and legs dipped into shore lapping waters. I’ll take perfect moments like these when I can get them. I’ve been enjoying a slower pace this weekend […]

Minimal Monochrome

Minimal Monochrome

Sometimes the simple things in life really are the best and it doesn’t get more simple than monochrome. On days when I’m feeling fashion brain-dead and haven’t got a clue what […]

Denim Days

Denim Days

I’m definitely a jeans and tee girl. I practically live in denim. We all know the value of a pair of well-cut jeans and the allure of a throw-on denim jacket, but […]

Quilted Bomber Jacket

Quilted Bomber Jacket

Head-to-toe tonal dressing made easier with a luxe bomber… I’m a fan of tonal dressing. Wearing one colour all over fits with my keep it simple approach to dressing. One of […]

Granny Wants Her Shoes Back

Granny Wants Her Shoes Back

I’ll be honest, my affection for granny shoes has been a slow burn. Initially I just didn’t get it. They looked confused. Not quite flats, not quite heels. Way too […]

Spring Grey

Spring Grey

It’s been a busy week in Swiss-land. Not that I’m complaining. I like being busy but you know when you realise you’re nearly a quarter of the year in (eep) […]

Blaze Into Spring

Blaze Into Spring

I’m so happy to see the longer days and bright skies in Zurich. Winter felt like it dragged on for-ev-er. As winter coats are relegated to the less used section of our […]

Stripes on Stripes

Stripes on Stripes

On its own a striped blazer is just that; a jacket with a pleasant geometric lined pattern. Not exactly revolutionary style-wise but like most things in life it’s what you […]

Jumpsuit Convert

Jumpsuit Convert

I’m seeing jumpsuits everywhere and not just on the local Swiss kids heading to kindergarten. The trend is big this year. Balenciaga, Ralph Lauren, Chloe, Stella McCartney, Fendi – they’re […]

Hoodie Heads Up

Hoodie Heads Up

Prepare to get excited… The Fashion Gods have spoken, the humble hoodie is acceptable style outerwear. No really, I wouldn’t tease about something as serious as this. Not just for […]

Military Grade Khaki

Military Grade Khaki

When it comes to my uniform du jour it’s safe to say it involves denim of some sort, black or grey and a knit (chunky or fine, I’m easy) to […]

Victoriana

Victoriana

I’m not one for florals and frills but there’s something about this season’s Victoriana trend that I can’t get enough of. Think cascading ruffles, high necklines, puffy sleeves and flowers galore […]

Going Straight

Going Straight

Let’s talk about the ‘IT’ denim look of the season, straight leg jeans. I’m a seasonal denim wearer – skinny jeans in the cooler months with ankle, biker and knee high […]

Breton Basics

Breton Basics

                  I don’t know about you but for me a trip to Paris (or anywhere in France for that matter) isn’t complete […]

Camel Commitments

Camel Commitments

It’s raining here in Paris but I don’t care. The cobblestones are gleaming, it’s early and it’s quiet. The streets are empty apart from the odd local rushing past with […]

Wide Leg Silhouette

Wide Leg Silhouette

The wide leg trouser is a key silhouette for Spring / Summer 2016. Slouchy and tailored, it’s the ideal partner for a casual or formal look. The perfect accompaniment to a chunky […]

Black and Camel Weekends

Black and Camel Weekends

It’s the perfect colour combination for weekend wandering through the city. Black and camel – chic, effortless, strong (no I’m not describing myself). If your weekends are anything like mine you don’t […]
