Style: Essential Swimwear

In the run up to summer J takes her pick of swimwear style


I've done it! I've booked my holiday and am counting down the days (alright weeks, days and minutes) until I jet away for 2 weeks of sun filled spreadsheet-less bliss. Now comes the pre holiday preparation and along with the vows of increased exercise regimes and a halt to cheeky Saturday morning brunching treats, there is the very important job of finding something to wear on the beach. 

First up is the all important swimwear section, here are a couple of my top picks:


The Eco: Vitamin A 
Vitamin A, the EcoLux swimwear label strikes the right balance between style and ethics.

The Highstreet: Victoria Secret

Victoria Secret, known for some of the best dressed of the of scantily clad, has a great diverse range of swim wear (including one pieces) for all skin tones and body shapes

The Independent: Kiss Me Deadly

Kiss Me Deadly, has lovely once piece options as well as more alternative bikini shapes.

The Alternative: Clover Canyon


Clover Canyon, creates a diverse range of alternative and striking swimwear, both in shape and prints.

Whats on your summer swimwear wish-list?

Thought: Blogs in Brief

This week I've been reading around nutrition and equality and I've chosen a few of the best for you to enjoy. 



Laura Bates continues to raise awareness and fuel Feminism with her latest piece for the Guardian. Well worth a read if you fancy an inspired weekend. 

A great, short piece on being gluten free - sorting the wheat from the chaff. Honestly Healthy is a great resource for recipes and lifestyle inspiration. 

If you're stuck for breakfast ideas then these 7 Green Breakfasts on I Quit Sugar are a healthy starting point. 

Happy reading!

Thought: Blogs in Brief

It's all change this week, as Spring has finally sprung! Catch up on the week's highlights. 

This week has been quite spectacular here in the UK, yesterday we experienced a supermoon, a solar eclipse and the Spring equinox all in one day. For those of you that didn't get to see it, the BBC got some stunning coverage from up in the Faroe Islands, it's guaranteed to add a bit of wonder to your weekend.





The fashion world has found itself at a bit of a loss this week. After weeks of back to back shows, we're now left in the black hole where fashion month once was. Fill that gap in your life with our best bits of New York, London, Milan and Paris.

One of the most enjoyable things about fashion week is the street style, quite apart from what's on the catwalks, we know we can rely on the fashion crew themselves to provide us with plenty of outfit inspiration. Tommy Ton shot some great looks on style.com.

And after that, put on some sensible shoes and go outside! It's a beautiful day and the daffodils are in full bloom - go and give them the attention they deserve and give yourself a well-deserved breath of fresh air.

Have a great weekend.

Style: Spring Summer Wishlist

E takes us through her SS15 wish list. 

A few things have made they're way onto my wish list, of course it's always when you have no money that these things happen...

Starting with this lovely loose fit silk jacket, from Cos. It just looks so effortlessly classy, and easy to wear.



Monki's delightfully playful Yasmin skirt comes next, with the warmer season coming up I can't help but dream of swishy skirts.



This Topshop Jacquard Crop Top and skirt combo looks like it could contribute to a classy cocktail-filled night out.



Of course a wish list wouldn't be complete without something from the all time favourite Clarks, so these Dusty Pink Hamble Oak Brogues, have caught my eye.



What's on your wish list? E x
