THE EDITED CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE #3: For the little dudes

I am going to admit that I find Christmas shopping for the kids really stressful.

Mainly, I don’t want to go mad and spend a fortune, obvs. Everyone else is always so generous and they already get SO MUCH. Plus the children’s dismissal of gifts within seconds of unwrapping them ready for the next present-high really irritates me.

I am also very much aware that all those plastic balls or figures that are lovingly played with for an hour on Christmas Day will have found their way under the sofa – lost – by Boxing Day.


So here’s The Edited’s guide to some stylish buys for all those little dudes in your life. read more…

THE EDITED CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE #1: Beauty hits to please everyone

YIPPEE! It’s almost Christmas!

Yes, of course I’m joking and no, I haven’t finished* (*started) my present shopping yet.

(I just have the small matter of whether I’ll be in our new place by then, so at this point I’m not sure where I should direct the multiple Amazon parcels.) read more…

My Style: The work-appropriate blouse that’s a bit rock n’ roll


Chambray pussy bow blouse, La Redoute | Trousers, ASOS (old season, similar here) | Grey gilet, ASOS White | Shoes, Tabitha Simmons (old season, similar here) | Poppy brooch, The Royal British Legion | Hoops, Hoop Station by Georgiana Scott

A confession. I haven’t checked out French mail order site La Redoute for ages, it’s just one of those brands that has passed me by. Then last week I met up for lunch with a lovely (and stylish) friend who had the most gorgeous blush pink coat on and admitted she’d bought it from a brand called Coralie Marabelle for La Redoute. read more…

Twin pockets knitted tunic with wool, Autograph at Marks & Spencer | Wrap knitted A-line skirt with wool, Autograph at Marks & Spencer | Boots, Ted & Muffy | Bag, Topshop (old season, similar here) | Coat, Jigsaw (old season, similar here)

I get it. Sometimes a smart event calls for something more than a dress. You don’t want to pull the whole cocktail-to-a-business meeting thing, but you do want to wear something that lets the world know you know what’s up. read more…
