I bought these patent charcoal Block Pump United Nudes thinking they’d be versatile: good for rainy school-run days when you need to look smart (when wellies just won’t do), and also when even elegant boots don’t go with what you’re wearing. I tried the Block Pump out with this outfit, and I liked how they … More United Nude Block Pumps
On one of those sunny but cool days that heralds the end of summer and the coming of autumn, there’s nothing more appropriate than a dress with three-quarter length sleeves. This is me in my teal coloured Dorothy Perkins ensemble, with an unusual tan leather belt from the Zara sale and my extremely comfortable United … More Time For Teal
Since for various reasons my hair has now changed from a peroxided white-blonde mid-length bob, to a short Manic Panic Candy Cotton Pink bob (more of that later), I’ve been looking for ways to accessorise with my new hair. After all, the last time I had pink hair was in my twenties, and those years … More Belt Up Pin-up!
I have a real thing for acid brights, and this fluoro yellow top-dress is no exception. It may be a couple of years old, and have cost about £4 from the Primark sale rail (yes, Primark has a sale rail!), but it still hits this season’s neon and sportlux looks, and was such a steal … More Snakes And Adders
Today’s school-run shoes are a departure from my usual brightly coloured footwear, being as they are a pair of nude Carvela heels from the Kurt Geiger store in Brighton.

The yellow stripe … More Pretty In Primark
Today’s pointed red patent school-run shoes are by Bandolino, and I bought them second hand for £10 from an eclectic Saturday market in Brighton. They don’t show any cheeky toe-cleavage (a style I prefer), but still: Bargain!
Wore the shoe version of these United Nudes yesterday for the school-run, but here is the shoe-boot style for cold nights, muddy puddles, girlie evenings out on the town and asymmetrical pink hairdos. Or all of the above…at once!
