Juicy summer colours!


Block colours, clashing colours, acid brights, Eighties colours....

Shopping for clothes is like choosing which sweets to have in your pick and mix! Which colour to go for? They’re all fab.

A bright purple belt on a khaki dress is a nod towards the summer brights trend, as is a yellow Cardi on a navy dress, or a bold & beautiful necklace on a more subdued outfit.

Fashionistas are recommending we mix colours together for an ‘on trend’ look, but If you’re not sure which colours make a good clashing combination, and which a bad, then try putting just one bold colour with a nude background, Reiss do this fantastically!

Accessorising a bright outfit is often a struggle so consider using a nude coloured pair of shoes or handbag to finish the outfit.

I love the power of nude shoes. They go with any colour or any outfit and they make your legs look longer. What more could you ask for!
Try these ones from French Connection:

A busy sunny Sunday show

I spent Sunday at the Bristol Womens Show


How great! An opportunity to talk to the women of bristol face to face. I speed styled the day away; giving a group of women the chance to take home a goodie bag containing their own prescription sheet tailored to their shape, along with some of my top tips.

The show was such a success with the Bristol ladies coming through the doors in their droves. Such a great success with the Bristol ladies coming through the doors in their droves. Such a great girly day out.

To add to the excitement, the lucky ladies who watched the fashion shows put on by Drop Dead Gorgous and Bespoke finery, were witness to the WI, my husband and two friends' big debut on the catwalk!
