Noir et Blanc
Feminine, effortless and elegant - how to define pure French chic.  

I often am on the 'look out' for cute, simple day dresses which require little effort and outshine by themselves.  This super petite monochrome stripe dress felt like it was tailored-made for me when I tried this on.  Partnered with a soft, plain scarf and some flat pumps = outfit complete. 
Hair by Holly
My secret tool......Scunci Topsy Tail.  This looped wand can create a variety of twists, twirls and loops with your hair.  Continuing with the elegant and effortless Parisian look I chose a basic ponytail loop.

Dress In Denim
So my sister is officially my best friend when shopping!  We walk into every shop and nearly always pick up exactly the same pieces.  This petite denim dress was one of those moments in Topshop.  

Perfect for spring or autumn when the sun is only just showing its face, a denim dress is a timeless piece. Slightly heavier material than a cotton or silk, the denim keeps a great shape.  Arriving in style, with no wrinkles or ruches.

Keeping it casual, choose a pair of leather brogues, pastel loafers or print skate shoes.  Office, Russell & Bromley, Kurt Geiger and Massimo Dutti offer a brilliant selection.

Garden of England
Kent my home county, where the fields are filled with rapeseed this time of year.  I always pass this field and public footpath when driving to work and I think this just sums up why we are traditionally known as "The Garden of England".
My sister wore this bright top out last week to dinner and I instantly wanted to steal this!  I love my bright, mad colours and this teamed up with a statement necklace catches anyone's eye straight away.  The bright orange instantly lifts the pair of neutral strides and wedges.

For those of you that know me, I love my statement prints and bright colours.  These blue and white pleat trousers were a must from the moment I saw them!  Offset with a plain 60's style white blouse and plain navy leather loafers I like to stick with similar colour schemes.  

I always try to tie a pattern with plain.  Sometimes less is more!!
Parfois Crocodile Bag - One of my favourite bags at the moment!  Not too small or too big.
