Well, I think a sausage print umbrella is stylish, but I do realise that this may well be a minority view. But I don’t think there would be any dissension over the Crumpet Biker Jacket that I am also wearing here. I think it is the perfect summer-autumn transitional piece, for when the days aren’t nippy enough for a coat, but need something more than a T shirt.

I took it to the Ukraine two weeks ago (I’m wearing it in these photos) and it was the perfect travelling piece too.

And yes, I am wearing my Gap Sexy Boyfriend jeans again (the ones I wore for my AW13 denim story in Red). That’s because I live in them. I’ve paired them here with a simple Gap navy V neck T shirt, and Lucy Choi snakeskin stiletto heels.

Oh and the umbrella is sold by Dogs Trust, to raise vital funds. I think it would make a perfect Christmas present for a dog lover. I bought this one for my sister. (There are also Golden Retrievers, West Highland Terriers, Poodles, Labradors and Jack Russell prints available.)

Umbrella: Dachshund Print from the Dogs Trust £19.99.
Jeans: Sexy Boyfriend by Gap.
Shoes:  Lucy Choi London (gifted). They are last season I am afraid, but check out these amazing leopard AW ones.

Jacket: Cashmere Biker Jacket Light Grey Marl (on loan) £270
T Shirt: Gap Essential Short Sleeve Navy T £9.99

Thank you to Emily for taking the photo and ensuring that I didn’t break my neck.

I am totally with you on these jeans. I bought the shorts while on holiday in Hawaii in July inspired by you and then bought two pairs of the jeans which I have not stopped wearing. So comfy and so easy to wear. I now see everyone is all over them but I read it from you first:)


I love the umbrella! It’s so cute. I know several members of my family who would love one of the dog umbrellas, so thanks for sharing the link – I think you may have helped sort out some of my Christmas shopping!

love your umbrella! x



I love the jacket! I bought a similar one from River Island – not cashmere of course, but a fraction of the price. It’s great to throw on with jeans and a Tee on chilly mornings. X


We love Crumpet cashmere too! We’ve exhibited with them a few times, lovely girls and lovely cashmere sweaters!
