Simple Style | Spring footwear…

Spring is almost here!  I can hear a chorus of daffodils chiming in the sunlight!  Or maybe it’s just my joy, at finally being able to kick off my winter boots and slip my feet into something lighter. Spring footwear is here to give me a spring in my step! I’ve been searching the internet for suitable shoes – no heels for me.  I am a flat wearing, lass and I like it.  I would much rather stomp about in a pair

Seasonal Rituals | Autumn forage in the woods…

Sometimes the smell of Autumn just takes hold of me, and there is a real need in me to go to the woods. I love to forage for wild mushrooms, except I really wish I knew what I was doing, mushroom identification is a dark art, that’s for sure.  My style of foraging is that I gather plenty, come home to identify them, get scared and end up throwing them on the compost heap!  I should take a foraging course,

Simple Style // Winter Coats 2017…

I’m in the market for a new winter coat. Something that is warm, stylish and will work for all winter events, crisp frosty mornings and days out.  This year I fancy a splash of colour, a touch of emerald green or mustard yellow.  Teamed with a huge checked scarf and a woolly pom pom hat.

Simple Style // Autumn ride around Bristol Harbour with Seasalt…

Autumn: rusts, oranges and browns. Warm woolly jumpers and soft needle cord. Discovering your favourite new scarf and getting outside and enjoying this wonderful season.  Yesterday I did just that. Taking my beloved Temple Cycles bike out for a spin around the harbour. This season I am loving to wear colours that reflect the season, my new favourite is this beautiful rust needle cord ‘Silversmith’ skirt from Seasalt Cornwall.  Soft fabric, with a great drape and length. Teaming it with

Simple Style // Late Summer adventures with Seasalt…

(This post is written in partnership with Seasalt Cornwall). I’m ‘almost’ at a point of autumn ready.  Ready for winter boots, thick tights and rain macs. Almost. There is something so wonderful about pulling on a pair of sturdy ankle boots that makes me feel I can conquer the world.  Don’t you agree? This year’s ankle boots are courtesy of Seasalt Cornwall. A navy blue pair called ‘Rosie’ in the wonderful colour named ‘Fathom’.  Navy blue with a hint of

Simple Style // Summer style and wearing your wardrobe…

What is your summer style?  I wish I could say I wear breezy linen and a sun kissed face, but in reality my ‘go to’ uniform is black skinny jeans and a shirt of some description.  I love the idea of a ‘uniform’ something to throw on in the morning, it feels right, comfortable and capable for the day’s tasks.   Perfectly nice, but every day?  No that is BORING. This summer I am trying to wear my wardrobe, not

Simple Style // Spring style edit…

So Spring is upon us, even though it seems not have got the memo, where has the sun gone??.  It’s still quite cold in the shade, and that teamed with biting winds and sharp showers, Spring is a season where we still need to wear layers. I’m desperate to wear just a breton, floaty skirt and sandals again, but sadly this April weather still means some days call for skinny jeans, boots and jumper!  But a girl can dream… and

Simple Style // Seven Boot Lane & a walk in Bristol…

In a desperate attempt to not feel the crowding gloom of the Trump presidency and the last of the autumn days, Dan and I took a walk around one of our favourite parts of Bristol, soaking in the regency buildings, independent shops and golden autumn colour. It also gave me a chance to kick up the leaves in my new Seven Boot Lane boots.  This will be my third year in a pair of their boots.  Winter wouldn’t be the
