Accessories: Colour Study

Scandal, Faux Fur Scarf: Accessorize, Leather Gloves, M&S, Purple Bag: Accessorize

One colour that I appear to love at the moment is purple. I want to mix it in with my cobalt blue shirt, with faux fur, my purple skirt and my new gloves and silver spaceboots (hello next weeks outfit post). I also love mixing it in with leopard print, with greys and silvers and warmed up with camel and denim.

Purple it seems is my colour of the season, Capsule wise it takes up most of my colours with small hints of bright blue and red, plenty of black and a few bits of camel! Along with excessive accessories buying I think it may just have to be one of the things I stop buying! At least for a little while! I wonder what my next favourite colour may be, mmm .  .  .

For the love of chocolate and Downton Hats

We went for a run yesterday. I instantly regretted it. It rained, school kids had just been kicked out of school and into the wilderness, a.k.a maidstone. It was a mess. On the upside, my friends think I ran 2.7 miles.

(I walked, totally walked most of it – but maybe I could claim that as being interval training . . . no?)

On the plus side Josh came with me. Someone to witness my lack of fitness prowess and today my joints hurt. I might just have to go in for early retirement. Its the only way.

I never understood those people out running anyway . . .

(If you happen to be reading this on Wednesday, I’ve probably gone out and attempted running again. They call it glutton for punishment, I call it running for chocolate.)

City Lights and Nights . . .

From day to . . .




To Night . . .





As someone who works in the big smoke – London. For some reason since moving to kent I call London “The City” (There are cities in Kent, btw – so who knows where that came from!) Needless to say its part of (I think) The culture for Londoners and commuters alike. Finish work, put on a fresh lip colour and your out the door on the way to drinks, dinner and nights out with friends. Or work . . .

Whatever the reason, I always need a good from day to night outfit. We have a casual dress code so it means I can mix it up quite nicely. I especially love going from flats to a great heel, especially the pointed toes as they tend to hurt too much to wear all day. .  .

(p.s excuse the crazy hair, it needs both colouring and cutting – a dreadful combination)
