The little village of Bale in Croatia was definitely one of my favourites out of all we visited in Istria.
This town in Istria is so beautiful and worth stopping in for a coffee and a wander.
I’m away with my husband’s family in Croatia and the last thing I want to do is lock myself away in the dark to answer emails, write and edit all day. So for now you’ll find me by the pool.
I’ve escaped the city this week, to spend time with friends in Montmelard. The simpler way of life has helped me to feel more inspired.
Believe it or not, finding my comfort zone has actually given me the confidence to experiment more with my style. I really love to elevate the ordinary, taking my simple style and adding in a detail that changes things up.
I admit black may not be your colour of choice when it comes to what to wear on a hot summer day but come the evening, when the temperature drops a little and the sun’s rays no longer penetrate, it’s perfect. And if you have a golden tan then all the better for showing it off.
I recently came across a British womenswear brand called Wrap London. The brand has been around for years, are based just down the road from me and share my love for well-made clothing, made with natural materials.
I very rarely feature fast fashion brands as I think there’s a better way to do things but when I discovered Mango’s Committed Collection I wanted to show my support. Fast fashion brands are not going to be able to change their ways overnight but testing the waters with sustainable collections is a good start.
As you’ve probably gathered by now, I love a stripe and the Breton t-shirt (or marinière, as it’s known in France) is a favourite of mine. According to the NY Times, this year marks 100 years of the Breton.
COS recently released a very special collection to celebrate their tenth year, 10 – a limited collection of ten pieces for women, men and children. The pattern-cutters and designers worked together to create each item with minimum waste.
