By the time you read this – all going to plan – we will have landed in London. On the longest day of the year. Well the day with the longest daylight hours. I think this will either be conducive to getting over jet lag more quickly or keep us in some kind of time

This would have to be my biggest packing challenge to date. Well, since I started seeing every trip as an opportunity to better myself in this game the experts call packing light. I need to be upfront with you from the outset, if you’re looking for a “how to pack for three weeks in Europe with

FEATURED ankle boots AW15

There are many reasons why ankle boots are still very much a part of the winter fashion landscape. For me, I think the main reason is that, unlike their knee-high sisters, ankle boots don’t discriminate on calf width. Those of us with greater OR less-than-average thigh widths do not fear shopping for the ankle boot. There

Most of Australia is heading into a long weekend this weekend. Sorry Western Australia – don’t worry Queensland won’t have this holiday at this time next year either. This move does not please me as the Queen’s Birthday long weekend has typically coincided with my birthday weekend – something that very much has pleased me

How to wear the Bohemian Traders striped dress

FEATURED BT striped dress

One of the top-selling pieces in the Styling You Shop (the autumn-winter capsule is only available for sale until this Saturday, June 6) has been the Bohemian Traders striped dress. I’m not surprised at all. It’s a dress that I fell in love with last winter because if ever there was a frock equivalent of a pair
