We love an on-line shop and especially one with a story, Jimmy Fairly is no exception. For Antonin Chartier, the founder, the internet has long been a source of fascination. Beyond changing our way of buying, he was curious to see how far it could go to changing our way of giving.
Maybe it's a coming of age thing but we can't get enough of linen right now. Something that we once felt was reserved purely for a frumpy holiday trouser or a Joanna Lumley two piece at best is now taking over our wardrobes. Be it an oversized shirt or a button front dress, linen is our summer fabric of choice. A boyfriend blazer is our favourite way to wear it when teamed with a simple white tee and jeans.
There's something about kimonos that I just can't get enough of during the summer months. Thrown over a t-shirt, bikini or cami dress, the styling options for them are endless and I'm especially loving their versatility with the bump. Long or short, printed or embroidered for me it's a life long love affair rather than just a one season fling.
As you're all probably aware by now Wendy and I both love a good jumpsuit. It's our go-to wardrobe staple at this time of year to take us from day to night and is the instant throw on piece when you want to look like you've made more of an effort than you actually have.
Although sandals might be the last thing on your shopping list with the weather right now, it couldn't be a better time to buy them. We can't tell you how many times we've waited for the weather to warm up only to find our favourite styles have already sold out. So to help you get a head start we've rounded up our top 10 favourites from the high street right now.
As my waistline continues to expand I'm looking for more ways to express my personal style without caving in to maternity wear which seems to instantly transform me in to a pregnant Charlotte from Sex And The City. Cute and feminine but not very me. One trend this spring that I'm loving is the patent vinyl jacket.
Take one wardrobe staple and style it up in a new way.... it's as good a policy as any for spring and this is exactly what the designers were doing on the SS/18 catwalks with the humble trench coat. It also became one of the star pieces of the street style battles outside the shows too. So if we could all pretend that it's not currently baltic cold and snowing outside let's look forward to the new season and the perfect cross over piece to carry us through.
Winter is always a season that Wendy and I welcome with open cashmere adorned arms. But as we approach the end of January our daily uniform of snuggly jumpers and denim is feeling a little repetitive and dull. A great way to get out of that sartorial rut is to dig out some of your summer pieces from the back of the wardrobe and layer them up.
It's a seasonal trend that comes back year after year and I'll be honest it took us a little while to get on board with it. But velvet is unavoidable right now and it's just about making it fit your personal style. For Wendy it's all about the blazer but I knew when I saw this Finery London jumpsuit that this was my silky soft calling.
If there's one thing taking over our Instagram feeds at the moment it's blazers. Be it velvet, check or heritage tweed they're a big deal this Winter and we're loving the versatility they bring to our most basic of basics.
There’s nothing I love more than when a trend that I’ve bought in to lasts for longer than a micro fashion season. What started with a boot obsession last winter has transcended in to a full blown colour obsession. Red is well an truly here to stay and is currently occupying around 50% of my wardrobe.
As much as we enjoy discovering a new brand we also love it when an old flame gets a shake up and attracts our attention all over again. Massimo Dutti had slightly dropped off our radar in recent years, feeling like Mango's slightly stuffy older sister.
