The WIT edit of the seven best high street buys to buy now and love FOREVER

As promised, a fab edit of seven great High Street buys from some of my favourite British stores that you will buy now and love forever from Warehouse, Karen Millen, French Connection, Top Shop, M&S, Accessorize and Kurt Geiger. A little bit like my New Look blazer and Top Shop boots, if you treat them well they will last you a long time and no one will ever know they are budget friendly buys!

Head to toe in High Street

I buy and wear a lot of High Street, but I tend to mix it in with designer pieces that give the overall look a more expensive feel. I often wear a high street dress with a pair of designer shoes or a great coat with a an expensive bag, it's how I like (and can afford) to dress and I actually find it more fun. Over the years I found some great pieces from the likes of New Look, Top Shop and French Connection that I still love and covet today, some of which I'm wearing today. My New Look blazer was a total gem that I bought at least three years ago, when I wore it in the office for the first time everyone thought is was Etoile and went out to buy one. Same thing goes for my Top Shop fringed boots, I recently spotted them on a very stylish Net a Porter employee that said she bought them after seeing them on WIT. Come back tomorrow to see a special post dedicated to the great British High Street with some of my favourite buys available now but that you will love forever.

Double denim + fabulous accessories

Today I'm dressing up a double denim look with a touch of red and a sprinkle of leopard. I'm a huge believer that if you invest in good accessories dressing up in the morning becomes so much easier. Try it for yourself tomorrow - a fab pair of shoes and a designer bag can literally transform your jeans, your white shirt, your pea coat and your little black dress. And with a quick swap over (a tote for a clutch and a pair of heels instead of flats) they can bring you from day to night in an instant. Don't forget your lipstick - today it's Heat Wave from Nars.

Scrapbook from last night: FNO with L.K. Bennett

My first Vogue Fashion Night Out was such fun! We had a great time at the Brook Street L.K.Bennett store sipping on champagne, eating delicious canapes, having our nails done and snapping away for our Instagram gallery whislt we shopped my favourite items from the current colelction. I wore a little red frock (Diane dress £325), black patent T-bar sandals (Anya shoes £225) and (in case you ask) Nars Cruella lipstick and Wicked Essie polish. Here's a little photo account from the evening!



And at the end of the night I picked the winner of the L.K. Bennett capsule wardrobe prize... Congratulations!

WIT mama Friday: Scrap book from Greta's glitter and neon birthday party

Here's a little scrap book from Greta's birthday party. This year the theme was pink and neon and whilst last year it was also kind of mine and my husband party too (we had both made it through the first year of parenthood!), this year it was only Greta's and her little friends.  

We had all her favourite foods (to be eaten in  no particular order: ice creams, olives, cup cakes, pizza, cookies and milk, pop corn and cheese sandwiches), and her favourite Gymboree teacher came over to play a special lesson for two year olds that involved Greta's current obsession (and the soundtrack to our home): Nemo.  

I am not a cook or a baker so I bought everything from Waitrose and made everything look super pretty (I especially loved my milk and cookies bottles!). The party bags on the other hand were something I really enjoyed making, I brought back mini baskets from Tunisia and filled them with lots of goodies like  ELC neon mini pots of play doh for the boys and wash off nail polish for the girls from Little BU

Greta wore a floral dress that her godmother gave her, Crew Cuts neon hair clip (plus a gold glitter crown headband from Hennies during her birthday cake) and Marks and Spencer glitter lace up shoes... I got emotional like every birthday and shed a tear (or two) at cake time...

See the post earlier this week to see where I bought all bits and bobs

THE Boden jewelled flats that we've all been waiting for are in store!

I've been waiting for this moment for months, I remember Instagramming these fabulous jewelled pumps in May at the Boden press day and thinking they were amongst the best thing I saw at all press days. Well, finally they are on line (in very low quantity I hear) and ready to be bought. Despite being in bed with the flu and feeling absolutely terrible my delivery this morning instantly made me feel much better!

They come in black, navy and gold and after much debating I decided to opt for black (I was also tempted by gold...) but I thought that I will wear them equally well with jeans and a jumper or a little black dress in party season. Which one will you go for?

Jewelled pointy flat £129 Boden
