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 ...

What I wore: green lace skirt

What I wore: Zara green lace skirt, denim shirt and pastel statement necklace | www.angelinthenorth.com

This skirt was one of those pieces you see on a rail in a shop, you grab, try on, buy and love. It instantly made me think of those beautiful Burberry looks unveiled at the SS14 show at Kensington Gardens, all dreamy pastel and lace. That said, it's a fairly bright shade of green but I've tended ...

Highstreet Outlet

Topshop embellished shoulder yellow jumper.jpg

A little while ago, I was introduced to Highstreet Outlet. It's an online store selling brands like Zara, Topshop, Boden, Dorothy Perkins and Monsoon for a fraction of the price products sell for in the shops. And a lot of it is current season! Highstreet Outlet kindly let me choose a couple of items for review. This lemon ...

Bo Carter: ‘Forgotten Leeds’

Bo Carter fashion boutique

In the couple of years I've been writing this blog, Bo Carter's name has cropped up several times as one of the leading lights in Leeds fashion. She was born in Poland, had a spell in Holland, but moved to the UK 14 years ago and now calls Yorkshire home. "I would definitely call myself Cosmopolitan," she ...
