Today I went out with my two little brothers who’d come down for a few days during half term. They are 2 and 5, so we went to Hamelys and for lunch. Hamleys is the most overwhelming place on the planet to shop, and I’ve been in Selfridges during the New Year Sales. Not fun. Although they boys seemed to love it. So much to play with and not enough time. It is half term after all but it was just crazy! Lovely seeing them though, it makes me sad being so far away from them and them growing up without seeing them. It just melts my heart seeing how much they've grown over the years and how big they are now.

The “storm” we’ve had in the UK over the last two days was making sure my dress was blowing up every 5 seconds when taking these images but you get the idea. I wore my new ASOS coat which I love love love, so much love. I described it in my latest ASOS haul that it had homeless vibes. Which I meant it had the whole "I bought this from a thrift shop" Mary Kate Olsen, oversized baggy feel to it. Y'know that look that she rocks so well and us mere mortals can only ever dream of looking so effortlessly cool. Sigh. That baggy granny chic but taken to the next level. I really like it though, and it's so warm despite actually being a "coatigan" (cardigan/coat hybrid) and it kept the rain off nicely as I traipsed around central London.

I need to have a big chill and pamper session tonight. I've got a video planned for next week which is a big ol' pamper routine/night in type thing and I wanna give it a trial run before I get down to film it. I really love looking after myself when the weathers turning, makes it feel that little bit more indulgent.

  21. It's really nice to hear you're spending time with your litte brothers - it reminds me that I need to be a better sister and spend some time with them!
    The over sized coat is definitely a homeless MK vibe, and i love it.
    Love the back setting in these!

  22. I love your posts but here the title comes off privileged and insensitive.
    Have you seen homeless people recently? The image of haggard people sleeping on the street and pushing around carts with their belongings is not conveyed by a fresh floral dress w/ coat....

  23. You look lovely, Love the print on that dress, it's gorgeous and the coat too. Definitely know what you mean about Hamley's, I thought Harrods was easy to get lost in but Hamley's is a whole other level!

  34. Wow. I've been following your blog for a number of years now, and whilst I appreciate that you only write about fashion and beauty and therefore it's not really to be taken seriously, I think it's hugely insensitive to refer to your outfit (and recent ASOS haul) as having "homeless vibes". Sadly, there are millions of people who don't have to cultivate such a look because, y'know, they're already homeless. Unlike you.

    I'm also sad to see that only one of the 46 previous comments has referred to this and felt that it's an issue. I'm fairly sure you don't read your blog comments, but if you do, I hope that you can read back over this post and see how ignorant this seems. I'll no longer be following anyway.

  49. I am also really disappointed to see the title of this post. Being homeless is often a truly, heartbreakingly grim experience and to evoke it in a post about your choice of clothes for the day is a thoughtless and insensitive thing to do.

    Please be aware of how your post might come across to others, even if few of your readers are likely to have first hand experience. There is a world of difference between 'thift shop' and living rough.
