How To Style A Little White Dress

How to Style A Little White Dress…or at least how I like to style one, and for me, it’s all about a classic color combination for a classic look.

When you hear ‘little white dress’ you might be reminded of a bridal shower or engagement party, but I think there’s so much more to this garment. Like a blank canvas, it can be turned into anything and be fit for any occasion, really, depending on on what you choose to add to it.

The addition of a few black, white and gold accessories turns this into a timeless look that’ll take you plenty of places.

2019 New Year's Resolutions

Resolutions, love them or hate them, are something that always come around in January. I think they’re a nice reminder to take stock and I love sharing these on the blog as it’s a snapshot of what was important to me at a particular time. Revisiting these posts is like opening a time capsule and they’re so interesting to reflect back on.

Here are my 2019 resolutions, plus a little look back at the past twelve months too:

Favorite Festive Spots in London

I may be biased, but I think no other city does Christmas quite like London. Everywhere you turn in the capitol is dressed up—from grand hotel facades to townhouse front doors. When you stumble upon some of these spots, you can’t help but smile and get excited for the coming season.

Yes, it can be stressful and hectic, but Christmas in London might also just be the most wonderful time of year.

Winter White in Stuttgart

Despite the fact that I take public transport regularly, have a tendency to spill coffee and have two black cats, this white coat has become a staple of my winter wardrobe this year. Against all odds, it’s even managed to stay clean. And I’ve even worn it on board four flights—really!

I really like white coat plus a few sparkly accessories as a different take on festive dressing, and this outfit is a shining example!

Seeing the Christmas Markets of Southwest Germany

I come from a family of people who love to travel (myself included) and I’m lucky to have been to a fair amount of places. But I’m the only person who had still never been to Germany (save for a layover in an airport, but that doesn’t count). I felt a bit like I was missing out, so when Supal asked if I’d like to join her on a trip to Stuttgart, my answer was of course a firm ‘yes!’.

It was a whirlwind trip to say the least. From the moment we landed until the moment we took off back to London, our days were packed. From medieval towns to the most modern library you’ve ever seen, plus plenty of Christmas market charm, here’s what we got up to in Southwest Germany:

Roses are Red

Want to know a secret? Despite working with blooms and sharing photos of flowers on my feed, I almost never have them in the house! And if I do, they’re usually behind a closed door rather than proudly on display.

I blame our two mischievous cats who’ll chew on anything new that enters our home. So despite loving flowers, I really prefer my blooms on my sleeves. So of course I fell for this stunning dress:

The Jumpsuit of Dreams

If you see me at a party or event this holiday season, I’ll probably be wearing this.

Bold color, playful pattern and sheer, voluminous sleeves that remind me of I Dream of Jeannie in the best possible way. I love wearing clothes that call to mind another era and this jumpsuit does just that with its shape, pattern and perfect detailing.

Yes, this is the jumpsuit of dreams!

A Three Day Porto Itinerary

A little earlier in the year, my fellow blogger Supal asked if I’d be interested in joining her on a trip to Porto. I’ve only ever heard wonderful things about this city, so it was an immediate ‘yes!’ from me. We managed to fit in so many experiences and sights during our two days in the city.

Here’s what we got up to during our time in this beautiful city:
