Sunday 7 – Slinky Satin Edit

Oct 14th, 2018 Small Talk, Sunday 7 Bean 19 min read

Hello, Welcome to another Sunday 7 – possibly the hardest one I’ve compiled to date. And by hardest, I mean, most difficult… I feel somewhat sombre and heavy-hearted in the knowledge that I am a teeny-tiny cog in the massive machine that has contributed to the awful environmental destruction of our planet. All in the name of fashion FFS. Utterly ridiculous! Before I launch into…

Sunday 7 – A/W 18 Checks and Tartan Edit

Oct 7th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 17 min read

Hello, And welcome to another Sunday 7. I’m looking at checks and tartan print this week, which are meant to be ‘big’ this autumn/winter… {… although, when have they ever *not* been big during autumn-winter?!} Whilst I normally shy away from animal print and large florals… checks and tartan are a firm favourite for me. Here’s what I’ve picked this week: 7. H&M – Checked…

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 – 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…

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…
