Sunday 7 – Getting Autumn Ready

Sep 23rd, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 19 min read

Hello! How’s your week been? I’ve spent most of it up to my eye balls in paint: egg-shell and the regular wall stuff… what ever it’s called?! Oh and wall-papering. And as such, I am very tired. Right through to the marrow of my porous, brittle, little bones. But there’s always time for a quick fashion scroll of an evening, not matter how bloody-shot and…

Sunday 7 – 70s Fashion Trends

Sep 16th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 16 min read

Hello! Welcome to this week’s Sunday 7 where I’m talking all things 70s. One of my favourite decades given it’s when I was born… all the best people were born in the 70s*. {*Joking obvs} When I think of my 70s childhood fashions, I think of big collars, big cuffs, big texture (i.e. corduroy, shaggy furs), big cable knits, big checks (tartan), big block (stack) heels (mum’s…

Sunday 7 – Autumn basics

Sep 9th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 16 min read

Hello! And welcome back to my first weekly Sunday 7 after a month off!  Hope you all survived the summer holidays? I’m loving getting back to a normal routine: the kids are back at school; the never ending sales have *almost* ended; there have been proper New Season drops in the shops & the temperatures have finally dropped enough to make it acceptable to talk Autumn fashions….

Sunday 7 – New-in on the High Street

Aug 5th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 12 min read

Hello! And just like that, the first couple of weeks of the school summer holidays have flown by! How are you coping with the holidays or working in this gorgeous, proper summer that we’re having? Shops are full of the dregs of the sales, with some fabulous bargains to be had. But I’m done with looking at summer stuff: I go on holiday in a…

Sunday 7 -What’s New?

Jul 29th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 17 min read

Hello! I’ve been kind of stuck in a rut with these Sunday 7 blogposts: new in stuff *is* finally creeping into stores / on their websites, but given the heatwave, it’s been kind of hard to even *think* about clothing for cooler weather. Until today. A temporary drop in temperatures, bit of wind and rain… and I’m right back on it! So… in a “I…

Sunday 7 – Sports Luxe

Jul 15th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 22 min read

Hello! Welcome to what is going to be for most, an entire 7 of ‘wildcard’ items: a Sports Luxe 7. I figured, given it’s been a sporty kinda month, what with the World Cup and Wimbledon grande finale’s today… not to mention most of those with kids enduring Sports Days in recent weeks, it was time to have a little fun with a Sunday 7…

Sunday 7 – Cheap Summer Treats

Jul 8th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 14 min read

Hello! And welcome back to a Sunday 7 after an impromptu two week break… … and confession time: I struggle to blog about ‘new-in’ stuff during this frenzied season of sales, where most people are simply interested in bagging a bargain and there is little to none ‘new-in’ to blog about. That and this heatwave. I always blame the weather for everything. Or the kids!…

Sunday 7 – Rust Ease

Jun 24th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 15 min read

Hello! And welcome to a Sunday 7 all about one of my favourite colours: Rust. Ginger, Terracota, Toffee, burnt orange… and any other name it may go by, but to me, it’s plain old Rust. I’ve already blogged about my love of this colour back in September’s ‘Feeling Rusty’ Sunday 7 … …but given this colour is going to be big for a/w, I figured you…

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…
