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 ...

DIY envelope phone case

DIY pink leather envelope phone case | www.angelinthenorth.com

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 ...

DIY chunky chain pink resin jewellery

You may have seen this outfit post yesterday in which I wore a necklace and bracelet I made from chunky pink plastic chain. I've been an admirer of bright, bold jewellery pieces like this for some time. {1: Adia Kibur at Shopbop; 2: Adia Kibur at Shopbop; 3: Belle Plage; 4: Tory Burch at Nordstrom} However some of these ...

Five ways to pull off mismatched bridesmaids

In last week's wedding post I talked about the trend for mismatched bridesmaids. It's not a new trend ~ it's one you see on blogs every day. But I think the reason it's sticking around for so long is because brides keep reinventing it, pushing the boundaries. Last week I blogged about Debbie Carlisle's versatile bridal ...

Pink acrylic chairs perfect for a girly pad

Occasionally, just occasionally I wish I lived with my girls. There are very many advantages to living with your other half, but sometimes wouldn't you like your pad to be something more of a pink palace {complete with a wine rack full of rosé}? One of those moments came when I saw the jelly collection at Made. ...

DIY tutorial: painted pink neon shoes

Yesterday's outfit post was about my neon accessories, and included a pair of heels that I'd been inspired to DIY after reading a post by the fabulous US-blogger Love Maegan. Maegan uses leather shoes; mine, clearly, are not. They were a pair of cheap, go-with-anything favourites that I ruined {as you can see in the 'before' pictures} ...

What we are wearing: neon pink

Neon was one of those fashion trends I thought I would resist. For me it conjured up memories of childhood when it was trendy for my older brother to wear terry towelling socks in fluorescent pink and green and yes, even {*whispers*} one of each colour. But slowly but surely neon is back in my life. ...

In yesterday's post Alex teamed a coral blazer with pink pumps. Great minds, I thought, because I've been planning a post on the hot pink and orange/coral colour scheme for a while. Honestly, it works! Read on for inspiration and some of the best high street buys. {via Pink Lemonade Design} {Marc Jacobs} {J Crew via Jelanie} {via Lookbook.nu} {via ...

What we are wearing: Mulberry and Mickey Mouse

Do Mulberry and Mickey Mouse go together? The jury is still out on that but this post is more about showing off my newest blazer purchase. Like shoes and bags (and perhaps rings and purses), I’m of the opinion you can never have enough blazers. Every girl should own at least one. Blazers can be feminine, they ...
