I'm a Nineties baby and grew up listening to Nirvana, Alisha's Attic and Courtney Love. While these tunes remind me of the daily drive to school (so tame!) I still really love the 90s and was punching the air with glee when the fashion trends moved back to that direction. Tartan, shirts, graphic tees, biker boots, slouch-take your pick for a nod to the era. The outfit above has a feel of autumn about it with the warm colours and longer length but it's my favourite combination in a while. The weather has been so chilly that a wool coat is a must too!

In summer I live in shorts! Anyone who has followed my blog for a while already knows this, I'm addicted! However finding the perfect pair isn't easy. Personally I'm not a fan of hot-pant style shorts. Far too many cute designs are destroyed by an up-the-bum cut. WHY??!! For day wear I don't want that, not chic at all. So, in my hunt for the perfect short I have found most of the highstreet useless, the hotpant look has infiltrated the system and I cant seem to avoid it. The good news for shorts fans is that JCrew seems to have the answer! Their chino short comes in a variety of lengths (genius!!) and loads of colours. Hallelujah!
If anyone else has found the holy grail of shorts let me know in the comments below so I can feed my addiction!

Despite it being May, it still feels a bit chilly to get out my entire summer wardrobe. Now is the perfect time to transition into a new colour scheme, new silhouettes and new textures but using layers to keep warmth and functionality. The above looks capture my favourite combinations.
Hats are perfect for the drizzly weather. Get a few more weeks wear out of your felt ones but then swap into straw once the weather gets warmer.
Chunky knits are easily updated with coloured shorts, silky dresses and skater skirts.
Dig out your Autumn coats. Peacoats, wool blazers, the trench and waxed Barbours all look cute with shorter lengths and Spring accessories.
