Sunday 7 – Black Summer

Jun 17th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 17 min read

Hello, And welcome to the ‘anti-summer-brights’ blog post. All about one of my favourite summer colours: black. It’s not that I don’t like brights, but black worn with a tan are a match made in heaven. And even if you don’t have a tan… Summer black makes for an effortless, understated cool look. (As it does to all year round to be honest…) So, here…

Sunday 7 – Jump for Sun!

Jun 3rd, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 16 min read

Hello! So I’ve had a couple of weeks off from the blog, just stuff like being on holiday and spending time with my family kind of took over. Which is never a bad thing. Anyway, I’m back, and today I’m talking about all-in-one’s of the dungaree/ jumpsuit / playsuit variety. Not everyone’s cuppa, I know… but I really rather love them, particularly in the warmer…

Sunday 7 – Summer really is here!

Hello, And welcome to another lovely sunny Sunday 7 from here in Salisbury… hope you had some sun today? With my weekly Sunday 7’s, the primary motive is to fawn over new-in stock (which helps me get things off my chest that no one in my family of boys is interested in!) …though sometimes, I like to theme the blogpost to say, big buttoned pieces…

Sunday 7 – Button it!

May 6th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 11 min read

Hello! And welcome to this super sunny Sunday 7: *how* fabulous is this scorchio weather? In case you haven’t already guessed, this edit is all about buttons, my current obsession. BIG button downs… though not enormous, gigantic ones. You’ll see what I mean in a sec. Also, this is a simple *just* seven kind of Sunday 7, no stinker or wildcard this week… it’s an…

Sunday 7 – Best for Petites

Apr 30th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 29 min read

Hello! And welcome to a slightly different Sunday 7 from me this week: a Petites special – the best shops for us shorties (& indeed, skinny-no-shouldered-minnies, like myself!) Though it may surprise you to learn, that not *all* of my Shop picks have petite ranges… and indeed, those that do, of course often have not only petites, but regular and tall ranges as well. Just before…

Sunday 7 – Summer is Coming

Apr 22nd, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 18 min read

Hello! Hope you’ve had a lovely week – with all this glorious summer like sunshine? I *think* here in Salisbury, we had two and a half days of it, and already, the memories of that icy blast in March feels almost unreal, as though it was a very bad dream. (I know, it was more than that – it was a frickin’ nightmare!) Anyway, a couple…

Sunday 7 – Shoes for Spring and beyond!

Apr 15th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 20 min read

Hello, And welcome back to a Sunday 7 after a little interruption to last week’s service in the form of my first ‘lurgy’ since last summer (so I shouldn’t complain too much!) as well as the fact that it was my wedding anniversary. 13 years! Anyway – last weeks draft blog post is yet another which will never see the light of day: I’m fickle…

Sunday 7 – Craving Colour

Apr 1st, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 15 min read

Hello, and welcome to an Easter Sunday 7! Not that there’s anything Easter-y about this post, it just happens to be Easter… which means we’re in April already! So, what have I got in store for you today? Colour. At this time of year… every year… I start craving some colour in my wardrobe. I’m not the most daring when it comes to wearing prints…

Sunday 7 – Spots and Stripes

Hello! And welcome back to my first Sunday 7 after a little 2 week hiatus… sometimes, life gets in the way, and other times, inspiration dwindles and thins out until you hit a blank. So rather than forcing it, and being disingenuous with the blog, I take a step back at these low inspo times, and sure enough, within a week or two, I’m suddenly full…

Sunday 7 – After the Beast…

Mar 4th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 17 min read

Hello! *So* delighted that the ‘Beast from the East’ has blown over: how about you? I’d like to say it was just a ‘storm in a teacup’ and no biggie, but we all know it’s been a little more than that: I haven’t left the house since getting home from yoga on Wednesday night! Whilst others have turned to online shopping for solace, this polar vortex has…
