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 ...

It's that time again - this month's gift ideas from the Ask Her Friends blogger panel is live! If you remember from last time I've recently joined a host of my favourite bloggers on this panel, and each month we choose a selection of gifts. And the best bit is if you hop on over to the June blogger ...

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 ...

Ask Her Friends May blogger panel picks

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to join the bloggers panel at Ask Her Friends. (Even better that my name was put forward by one of my favourite bloggers Lisa). The idea is that, each month, AHF asks their bloggers to choose gift ideas on a particular theme. So May is my first month ...

Maxi dresses for summer to autumn

Maxi dresses for day time: Asos stripe dress, Asos floral tie back dress, River Island colour block maxi dress, Oasis floral maxi dress | www.angelinthenorth.com

Slowly but surely, degree by degree, cloud by cloud, this exceptional summer seems to be deserting us. This is a difficult time to get dressed. I keep going out in just a T-shirt and finding there's a chill in the air, or the sun comes out and I'm having to strip off a layer by lunchtime. ...

Cheap and easy summer garden updates

As with the rest of my house, my garden is a work in progress. While it does have an excellent rhubarb patch, it’s mostly overgrown weeds, bare soil and pockets of rubble. But with this unprecedented, long stretch of summer weather we’ve been having I’ve wanted to get out in the garden much more. So I’ve ...

Jo Malone and summer nights

jo malone leeds

It was a gloriously sunny Saturday and we were heading to Leeds for an afternoon/evening/night out for one of our friends' birthdays. She'd planned a little thank you treat but we didn't know what it was. Then we turned into the Victoria Quarter and through the door of Jo Malone. The six of us were treated to ...

The things I love about summer

what I love about summer. bright floaty clothes and stacked bracelets

It may have been the coldest start to spring for 50 years, but we are now officially in summer time. There are so many things I look forward to about the warmer, brighter months. More than just the obvious. Winter seems to come back round so quickly, I'm often left wishing I'd made more of the summer. ...

DIY fashion inspiration: transparent bags

transparent bag at stella mccartney SS13 paris fashion week

Ladies, I'm afraid we may have to embark upon that most postponed of tasks: clearing out the handbag. Bags in transparent materials were all over the spring summer 2013 catwalks and they're completely incompatible with the contents of most of my bags: ancient receipts, fluff, chocolate bar wrappers... you know the things. This trend means the contents ...
