Smarten up

I am about to embark on a new and very exciting project
I am beyond excited at the opportunity 

A side affect is that I will have to smarten up my wardrobe

I have been looking for inspiration

First stop J Crew

a bit bland but a really good basic, 
could be brightened with statement jewelry
or a more colourful or patterned blouse, 
perhaps this one

Love these pants and the teeny polka dot shirt

I already own this blazer in blue 
and it is one of my favourites 
may have to add the red in wool for Winter

I also checked out BODEN
I have always been a fan of their kids stuff
but this season they seem to be shaking off the 
yummy mummy persona for something a little bit edgier, I like it

The cords are a little casual but I like the colours and the jacket is a great cut

These pants also look like a great cut may have to get a few different colours

This Jacket and this skirt are both currently on sale over at 

Love the simplicity of this outfit from COS

Also the essence of simplicity 
-this look from
 and while we are at Net-a-porter
why not pick up this Johnathan Saunders jacket

So wish me luck 
and I will let you all know the details as soon as I can 


  1. Hello Helen

    Wishing you success beyond your wildest dreams in your new venture.

    The last three images are my favourites.

    Enjoy the excitement.

  3. Those jackets are just what I like to wear too, and intimissimi silk tops look lovely with them:

    Good luck with the exciting venture!
