London

I am a proud Londoner and my city is in mourning. 

I had started a blog to show you my new shoes. What has happened in our city has made me think long and hard about posting. I don’t feel like sharing photos of my feet. Another day, not today. 

For today I just want to share this link

As well as making a financial donation, I’ve spent some time packaging up clothes and kids stuff today. Reports say the survivors of Grenfell Tower are inundated with donations so I will take this bag to my local support centre instead. 

We need more kindness and love in this world, that is certain. 

Back tomorrow. 

Espadrilles 

For some reason I have never felt espadrilles were for me. I didn’t feel grown up enough for them somehow. 

Then two things happened. My M&S studded sandals broke (more on that another day) and I saw Michelle’s holiday photos. I thought I should give espadrilles a go. ASOS dress (consider sizing down), Castaner Carina espadrilles

ASOS dress (now on sale) with Castaner espadrilles

Last year’s & Other Stories dress with yup, Castaner espadrilles

I like the black espadrilles so much I’ve ordered the red which are in the Net-a-Porter sale with 40% off here (be warned they are selling quick!)

Back tomorrow. 

I feel like dancing

I went out with my sisters on Friday night to see one of my favourite bands, Young Fathers. They were playing on the beautiful Southbank as part of M.I.A’s Meltdown and were brilliant. 

I love dancing and knew we would finish the night at the after party so trainers were a must. Topshop cami (now reduced), old H&M culottes (similar here and here), Zara crepe jacket, Next bag, old & Other Stories earrings. 

Back soon. 

Strapless bras

My annual strapless bra post. I am still a big fan the Fantasie Smoothing Strapless bra. I have it in both colours. It stays up all day, is comfortable and gives a perfect smooth shape under clothes (you don’t need to fill the cup)I bought this M&S bra recently and have worn it comfortably for a whole day several times. It’s slightly lower cut that the Fantasie which is useful. 

It probably goes against all advice but I tend to go up a back size in my strapless bras. 

Back again soon.
