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 ...

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!

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.

Outfit of the week: pastel green

Blimey it's been a long time since I blogged an outfit post! I've been waiting for the sun to come back out. Pastel shades have been around for a while but I'm really pleased they've had staying power. These delicate, ice-cream colours were plentiful on the spring/summer 2014 catwalks (and at the more recent autumn/winter 2014 shows, for that ...

One of my best friends has this Mulberry phone case which was the inspiration for my far more purse-friendly DIY option. I think I'll mainly use it on nights out, to protect the screen from being scratched by keys and coins at a time when everything gets thrown in a bag together and you're more interested in ...

Can’t quit statement necklaces

Statement gem rhinestone necklace | www.angelinthenorth.com

I have a mild jewellery addiction. My achilles heel is the statement necklace. They just seem to have the power to make an outfit look 'wow', don't you think? Cases in point. (sources: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4) My collection is growing all the time. Here are my current top six. It's unlikely to stop there. These are just ...

DIY varsity letter sweatshirt

DIY royal blue varsity letter sweatshirt | www.angelinthenorth.com

I've been crushing on varsity-style letter sweatshirts for some time, helped in no small part by this outfit worn by one of my favourite American style bloggers. So when Cricut kindly sent me a Cricut mini cutting machine to review, it was one of the first projects that sprang to mind. What I used ♥ plain sweatshirt (mine was from eBay, ...
