Hanging out at The May Fair Hotel for London Fashion Week

February 24, 2015 LLG Fashion

(I wore my pink Raf Simons x Adidas sneakers every day of LFW. Am now too addicted to comfort.) I think it’s fair to say that packing light, when I am travelling by car, is a skill that has always eluded me.  I was en route to stay at The May Fair Hotel, official hotel […]

January 3, 2015 LLG Fashion

(Navy Accessorize crochet swimsuit £29) I mentioned last week that I had had some issues finding beach clothes for my holiday in the middle of January, because I needed what amounted to an entire new wardrobe, having not been on an extended beach holiday for years and years.

Summer Holiday Shopping in the middle of the English Winter

December 28, 2014 LLG Fashion

(My Boden Tie Front swimsuit, photographed today at our pool villa at Sri Panwa on Phuket.)

I may be in Thailand for Christmas this year, but that hasn’t stopped me thinking about my traditional Christmases back in England – this is only the second time ever that I have been abroad for the holidays. (The first was when my sister worked in Miami and we all went out en masse to […]
