What I wore: festival wedding outfit

Monsoon Carmen embroidered dress worn at a North Yorkshire festival country wedding

We went to a fabulous wedding a few days ago. This family do was always going to be special - because it would be our son Sam's first wedding - but when the veil was lifted on the couple's carefully laid plans it was so personal, so fitting and so full of love that it is ...

Day at Leeds Waterfront Festival

Yarnbomb barge at Leeds Waterfront Festival 2016

Sometimes there are days (though they're not that common) when I think, yes, I have this parenting thing nailed. We had one such day recently, when we decided to have a day out in Leeds for the Waterfront Festival. It was much like life on summer weekends pre-baby: we got a little dressed up, we took the ...

A new ‘mum’ wardrobe?

New mum wardrobe! Zara pink stripe patch shirt, white jeans, geometric shoes

The other day I opened my wardrobe doors and decided I hated pretty much everything inside. When I was pregnant I didn't buy much or pay a great deal of attention to what I was wearing: I had a few necessities and work and casual outfits that I wore in circulation (and was completely bored of ...

What I wore: a perfect jumpsuit

Warehouse black off-shoulder jumpsuit

I wore this perfect jumpsuit for a day out in Leeds with the girls on Saturday. I felt pretty great wearing it to be honest and it drew immediate compliments from my friends.

A few days ago I was invited by McArthur Glen Designer Outlets to go along to their York outlet and pick out some key spring accessories. If you're not familiar, McArthur Glen is a brilliant invention for mere mortals like me who have a normal-sized budget. I can't justify splashing out hundreds of pounds on labelled gear but ...

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 ...
