DIY with a side of cashmere

Trilogy-fashion

A couple of weeks ago a new Trilogy jumper came into my life, and I haven’t taken it off since. I’ve worn it A LOT.

It’s because I love it. And when you love something, you should let it know. It’s your duty.

Spring is in the air…

Poppy Loves M&S

Spring is most definitely here and Summer it on its way…

I’ve ditched the coat and am seeking out lighter threads, pretty fabrics and feminine cuts. My brother said I looked like Mary Poppins in this dress. My friend said “Dorothy”. And quite frankly, I’ll take them both.

Gone Fishin’

M-&-S-Jumper-AW16

When you move into a new home, you inherit all kinds of bits and bobs. Loose fittings, a wobbly tile or squeaky hinge…

When we moved into our new house a few weeks ago, we inherited all these things.

And a pond. With actual fish in it.

Scootin’ with GAP Outlet

GAP Outlet - Poppy Loves

The Summer may be wending his merry way home, but the sun is still shining! But don’t let it fool you – it’s getting colder by the minute. Our central heating is now on, the thermostat wars have begun (I notch it up, he notches it down) and I’m reaching for some cosier outerwear for this inbetweeny weather, before Winter properly sets in and suddenly it’s all about Jingle Bells and cranberry jelly.

Oh hello, Autumn. There you are.

Poppy Loves AW16

Over the past few days there has been a noticeable shift from Summer to Autumn… Grey clouds have made a few appearances, the heavens have opened once or twice (and both times I have been caught out without an umbrella) and there is definitely the beginnings of an Autumnal carpet of golden leaves around my neighbourhood in London…

Oliver Bonas SS16 Edits

Oliver Bonas 2016

Last night, I popped down to Oliver Bonas HQ to see behind the scenes of their new SS16 collections… and as soon as I arrived, I felt like I was on holiday. Which was nice. Because it was friggin freezing outside.

The showroom was like a tropical island, with enormous cacti, gigantic luscious, green leaves, delicious cocktails and the glow of the sun…

Wardrobe detoxing
& beating Cancer with TK Maxx

Poppy's Wardrobe

My wardrobe is a complete embarrassment. There are remnants of teenage years, boots with heels missing, dresses with hems that I had always intended to take up but never did, jeans which I’d always intended to fit into… but never did… and every time I open the doors to this cupboard of doom, it is like stepping back in time… or perhaps that’s being kind. It’s like stepping into a mahoosive mess.

Hobbs – SS15 Press Edits

HOBBS SS15

Yesterday was a crazy day.. I was running for most of it, (from place to place, not in a cool sporty way) and was tucked up in bed by 10pm last night from sheer knackeredness… but the beginning of my day began with me, bright as a daisy (ha) at the Hobbs Spring Summer 15 press show off Regent Street.
