Jump To It

"I can't talk to you now, I got love to give
When my baby calls I gotta jump to it
I'm in a hurry, there's love to get
When my baby calls I jump, jump, jump to it"
~ Aretha Franklin

The fashion hero piece of 2015 has, without question, been the good ol' jumpsuit, and I'm delighted to see that the trend isn't going away any time soon. The jumpsuit is the most versatile, easy to wear (although not necessarily to the toilet!) piece of clothing there has ever been.

To be fair, as a short gal, I have struggled for years to find a full length jumpsuit to fit me but this year has been a bit like waiting for a bus; none come for ages, and then two come along at once! Two beautiful jumpsuits that fit perfectly; a very elegant black one from Karen Millen (blogged here), and this terrific Top Gun-esque one in a delicious khaki green colour-way from Topshop.

A utility style jumpsuit, it is tailored for a relaxed fit (I bought a smaller size for a more fitted look), has a button front, a drawstring waist and multiple pockets (I'm a sucker for a pocket). It's a terrific piece and comes with a very affordable price tag (I'm also a sucker for a great bargain).

Styled with a pair of flat brogues or pristine white Vans for a cool daytime look, or with a sexy pair of heels for a sophisticated evening look, the jumpsuit is a functional, feminine and fabulous addition to any girls wardrobe.

Heart & Dagger

“Cut deeply by the sharpness of your words
There is a dagger in my heart;
You put it there.
But you still have me.
Your cold, dark eyes watching
Tears of pain stream down my face.
In this moment no kindness, no compassion, no love.
But you still have me.
Lost in your words that bleed me, I forget how to speak;
We are alone and we are together
Our new song waiting to be written.
And you still have me.”

'Make Believe', Natalie B Coleman's AW15 collection is absolutely breathtaking. Inspired by the characters and worlds in Enid Blyton's 'The Enchanted Woods' books, Natalie has produced a whimsical, romantic collection. Each piece is evocative of treasured childhood memories, but at the same time, remains feminine, and very grown up.

This gorgeous shirt was the first piece to grab my attention; it is a bold, statement piece, quite simply a magnificent work of art! Covered all over in glistening white sequins, it has long sleeves, concealed zips at the cuffs, hook closing to the front, and a dramatic heart & dagger sequined logo to the front.

I styled it here with a pair of skinny jeans, and my favourite Isabel Marant boots. It's a cool, edgy look but believe me, the shirt looks equally fabulous tucked into a classic black pencil skirt for a more dressed up look or paired with a sexy mini for a cute, playful look. My wonderful sequin shirt is a classic, investment piece that will never ever go out of style.
