Spring summer 2015 fashion

Few of us have the funds to clear out our wardrobes every season and fill them up again following new fashion trends. And let's face it, we don't really want to. When the fashion weeks come round, I follow the runway looks with interest (and sometimes astonishment) to see the styles I might like to try a ...

Avenue 32 A/W wish list

Avenue 32 autumn winter 2014 wish list

I'm afraid that, on my budget, and with the money we're ploughing into the house, designer clothes just cannot be justified most of the time. But I always like to look and dream so when Avenue 32 asked me to compile a wish list for autumn winter, I was happy to oblige. With a good mix of ...

What I wore: pink cashmere

What I wore, pink cashmere jumper, black and white check skirt, New Balance trainers

Recently my 'go-to' outfit has mostly been my DIY and decorating clothes. But I felt my first cashmere jumper warranted documenting. Does the fact I've bought something that's made it to nearly every list of 'wardrobe staples' I've ever seen mean I've officially grown up, that my fashion tastes are fully mature? Not necessarily: I wore it ...

Grassington Festival

Grassington Festival fashion: New Look paisley print kimono

After a couple of days in London, we jumped back in the car and headed back up north for our annual festival weekend. Although on the same weekend as the world’s most famous festival at Worthy Farm, we were going to Grassington, not Glastonbury. Still, there were fields and live music, and with my wristband on I ...

Summer wish list

Summer 2014 wish list - Topshop, Marc Jacobs, Whistles, Zara, Asos, Stuart Weitzman, Alphabet Bags

So summer is being pretty kind to us Brits this year, no? How have you been spending these sunny days? As you know, I've been away camping and we've been busy making progress with the house renovation. I've been going out more than usual after work, the snatched hours of evening sun making up for all the time ...

What I wore: floral trousers

Floral trousers at Eltham Palace London

After just a handful of days in Norfolk, several weeks of solid toil at work and at home were forgotten and we were completely relaxed. Unfortunately, our zen-like state was about to change. Our next stop was London and driving into the capital would send our stress levels soaring - albeit for a very good reason. My brother ...

A boy, a girl and a bike

A boy, a girl and a bike 1940s photo shoot in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire

Bike fever has well and truly taken over in Yorkshire, with the Tour de France being here this week. So I thought it fitting to share this lovely 1940s-style fashion shoot, visualised by West Yorkshire designers and photographed by Shelly of Toast of Leeds around Hebden Bridge, where the Tour will pass through on Sunday. The shoot was ...

Joules summer festival style

Joules summer festival wish list

I've said before that I love how the number and range of festivals has grown in the last few years. When I was a student in the late 90s, it seemed like it was all - Glastonbury, parting with £200 for a weekend in a cramped tent, braving a mud bath and revolting portaloos - or ...

What I wore: printed jumpsuit

What I wore: black and white print casual jumpsuit, denim jacket, Ray Ban Wayfarers, tribal print backpack

This could be the world's comfiest jumpsuit. Perfect for summer days, it has a boho black and white print and is cool and light making it good to travel in while fitting for hanging out at camp, in the pub or at a garden party or gig. I wore it for our family's recent gathering at Cloughton Station and ...

What I wore: New trainers

What I wore: New Balance trainers | www.angelinthenorth.com

My great day in Manchester last week might have been a lot less enjoyable if I hadn't had these bouncy, comfy, sweet things on my feet. At the beginning of the year, I told myself 2014 would be the year I bought a good pair of (fashion) trainers. I knew I wanted New Balance or Nike ...
