Monday rolls around pretty quick doesn’t she?
This weekend the sweetest 2 year old told me I was his best friend and that just about melted me into a puddle right on the spot. I also played rather a lot of peekaboo…
So, cricket. It started on the catwalks and it filtered through to us mere mortals quicker than you can say first innings. I guess we can be grateful that the great British highstreet does that for us. I went for this Next number, and an extensive search revealed only navy in my size (FYI it runs big, this is a UK6) and I settled. I see white is back online now so go, go, go if you desire it for I am certain it won’t be around for long. I, on the other hand, am sticking with my navy because you can probably guarantee that everyone and their dog (mine says no) will be in white cricket jumpers by the end of the month…

I’m excited. Skirts over trews is not exactly ground-breaking – I did it in the 90’s with a handmade, lace underskirt type of situation over DIY, ripped up jeans with safety pins. It was really quite special. So things have moved on a little since then (for one, it is no longer plausible for me to feel destined to be Mrs Kurt Cobain). But here I am again and I am excited about the resurgence of lower half layering.
So the leather legs, which might as well be stuck to my limbs I wear them so much, under a Peter Pilotto. I’m gonna put it out there… the Pilotto for Target range didn’t exactly blow my mind, designers doing high-street rarely does. That being said, this skirt is a really nice skirt. I love her. Is she a Pilotto? Not in my mind. But I love her nonetheless for her own qualities – especially over the leather legs. A crisp white shirt feels about right for my sping state of mind and, what do you know, there’s even some sunshine coming through in these shots.

Woah, March? Where did you come from? Honestly the last month has been something of a blur… but I did my best to capture it on Instagram (at least when I look though my feed I can recollect some of where I’ve been)…
A few amazing days in Paris with the day job (it wasn’t all champagne and macaroons, honest – at least not before 5pm) before driving North for some time with my boys in the snow and then back home for a few days before London for Fashion Week and trying to eat healthy at mealtimes because snacktimes have been full of colour and sugar… New J.Crew jeans have been my weekend friends of late and make-up from Asos (coming soon, awesome right?) has come at the perfect time because I’m getting set for my SKI HOLIDAY in 10 days time – can’t wait (ski jacket recommendations very welcome…). And finally I did manage to snap up a piece from the Peter Pilotto for Target range at Net-A-Porter which I will show you more of tomorrow.
What have you guys been up to? Are you on Instagram?x
Fallen victim to the denims again… They might have been originally designed with genuine cowboys in mind (trimmed pencil skirts excluded) but I can’t help thinking they were meant for me all along. I can’t browse an online shop without resisting the urge to search ‘denim’ – I have a friend who does the same with ‘embellished’ – I guess we all have our vices. Currently on the spring denim hit-list are this bustier, this crop and this maxi.
MrK online shop searches for ‘carrots’ but his paws are too clumsy to ever make checkout…

Hats off to House of Fraser for the most incredible event venue… Kibble Palace was lit to within an inch of its life and it looked awesome. There were giant goldfish and there was the indoor jungle and there were wonderful new offerings from Maxmara, McQ, Acne and even Linea (for the embroidered breton stripes) and the new season bag collections were looking pretty special. The chance to sashay around this inner city, glass-housed forest meant I felt there was no other choice than a palm print skirt…
I urge you to visit – for an event or for no event at all. And then let’s go shopping for studded white leather clutches and sheer panel-striped skirts and coloured leather biker jackets (all coming soon and not quite landed just yet… but I have seen them in the lookbook and they are divine).
