Bauble Earrings

Cluster Stone Chandelier Earrings by Dorothy Perkins
Dorothy Perkins, £14

Coral earrings, £12, by Coast

Coast, £12
Joanna diamante earrings, Kurt Gieger
Kurt Geiger, £40

Statement earrings have long been a trend, yet have seen a recent resurgence with the rise in popularity of US high street giant, J.Crew – who open their doors to London shoppers in November with the opening of a flagship store on Regent Street and two boutiques in the city.

My favourite bauble earrings come from designers including Shourouk and Tom Binns – you can find these at Net-a-Porter. However, there are equally great options available on the high street in the UK from brands including Accessorize, Kurt Geiger, Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and Coast.

These look best paired with a simple grey marl tee [you can find plenty at GAP, J.Crew and Uniqlo] and bold skirt or 7/8th trousers, finished with a pair of pointed flats or ankle strap heels.

Trending: Faux Fur

Over the past few seasons, there has been a growing trend for faux fur - from Celine's Big Bird fur heels for SS13... Louis Vuitton's be-wigged doll-like models who paraded the catwalk in their négligée with what looked like their Grandmothers' fur coats draped on their shoulders....

The controversial AW13 trend: Are you fur it or against?

And Marc Jacobs' pastiche of a fox wrap, sported by Cara Delevingne, complete with black pixie crop...

Personally I prefer the 'less is more' approach when it comes to fur and love this understated long faux fur gilet from Zara.

Trend: Kilts

The popularity of the skort [see Zara for case in point] outperformed all expectations this summer and its sister staple, the kilt, is here to stay for autumn winter. 

Kilts have long been a key style staple in women's wardrobes, from school days to the office and are synonymous with Britishness [or more correctly, Scottishness].

Not just for men, here's how cool girls do the school skirt...

Wedding Details

This weekend it was my lovely friend Rachel's wedding at her family's beautiful Georgian home in a village in the Midlands.

Here are a few snapshots I took throughout the day of their gorgeous wedding details...
