Hello darlings! The festival season is well and truly upon us, it's official with Glastonbury taking place this weekend! This is our go-to look, casual and cute with a touch of chic brought by the silk headband!
Bonjour! Who's going to Paris this Summer?!
This is our go-to look to show the Parisians some je-ne-sais-quoi, we are keeping it chic and classy with a few red touches on black as well as working out some fun details with the cat sleeves of the blouse and the lipstick detail on the handbag, bisous!
We've recently teamed up with Crabtree & Evelyn to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their legendary skincare range 'The Gardeners'! For the occasion we created a silk scarf inspired by the range and by all of you sophisticated gardeners out there!
The scarf is limited edition and comes free when you spend a minimum of £75 in their London stores or online! Enjoy!
That's a look for all of you adventurers, wether you are planning to climb up the hills of Kilimanjaro or going hiking along the British coastal paths, this is a look that's stylish while keeping it practical!

Happy 1st April dear readers!
This month we want to focus on the classy 70's cravat knot! It is probably one of the most versatile ways to wear a scarf. As you can see in the pictures below, you can pretty much wear this style for all occasions. From glamourous parties, to work and casual days out!
For this look we recommend wearing a long scarf, you can also use a square scarf that is rolled inwards to make it long.
The seventies look is so cool right now, and there's no better accessory than long scarves to get the look! I love wearing the Mini Dalmatian Twilly Scarf tied as a cravate to give this style a modern twist too.
Yes March is here and with it comes the occasional rain!!
Fear not dear friend, we have you covered as this month's scarf knot is the headscarf... and who better than the fabulous Audrey Hepburn to show us how to get the look!
For all the headscarves below, you will need square scarves (you can use various sizes depending on whether you want to wear the headscarf tight around the head or not).
You will need to fold the scarf into a triangle by taking each opposite corners and placing it on your head with the fold line following your hairline. You can then either knot underneath your chin at the front or decide to go around the neck and tie the scarf at the back.
Sweetness alert!! This is all I want to wear this weekend, I am currently obsessed with baby pink and pastel yellow, they work so well together and make me dream of the Italian Amalfi coast! So long!
We've asked our friend Kirsty from the super cool blog Fashion For Lunch her Valentine's day favourite to give us a few inspiration, here they are!
What’s your dream Valentine’s day treat?
I'm a low key kinda girl, so I'm always happy with something casual like falafel takeaway and Clueless on TV. However, if a man was to go all out, I wouldn't mind being whisked away for a weekend in Miami to see palm trees, pink skies and a stroll along South Beach!
What’s on your Valentine’s day whishlist?
I am always partial to a new bottle of perfume, perhaps Jo Malone London Red Roses because it's one of my favourites and also perfect for the occasion. I would also love a Cartier Love Bangle, I have the ring, but I have always wanted the bracelet to go with it. Finally, it would be pretty special to get tickets so that we could enjoy doing something together, maybe for a ballet at the Royal Opera House in London! That would be rather lovely!
What is your favourite Rom-Com?
Does Clueless count?! that's one of my all time favourites, or Pretty in Pink, that has romance in it, although she does end up with the wrong guy, I'm #TeamDuckie any day of the week!
What is on your Valentine’s day playlist?
I'm listening to a lot of Elton John right now, I guess the most 'valentines-y' song by him is 'Your Song' but Ellie Goulding kind of slaughtered that one, so maybe 'Don't let the sun go down on me', not so romantic, but it is a gooden. I would also have to go for The Ronettes, 'be my baby' and Lana Del Rey's 'National Anthem' and Suede 'Still Life', just because! There are some songs I never get bored of!
Yes the sweetest day of the year is finally here, and this is Valentine's day! To celebrate we've created the best look, wether you are planning romantic dates or hanging out with your Galentines! Enjoy!
Happy 1st of Feb everyone!
This month we want to share with you all some pictures from the 1950’s/1960’s of different ways to wear square scarves as neckerchiefs!
This knot is a personal favourite of mine, and I I am sure you will all agree that it’s a great way to add a touch of colour to a work outfit as well as keeping you warm! Genius!
