Last Summer I bought a black cropped leg jumpsuit from Zara which I LIVED IN.

LIVED in I tell you. You can see it here.

It was the perfect style for my pear-shape because the legs were wide, but the wrap detail showed off my waist. And because there was a lower neckline, it worked if I wore it with tees underneath, with trainers, or on its own with a heel. In short, I recommended it to everyone because it seemed to be the most sophisticated-yet-flattering one-piece out there.

I’ve just spotted this one on ASOS in this season’s dusky pink colourway and it is effectively identical in shape to mine. I love the slightly kimono sleeves and cropped ankle shape. A great way of updating your wardrobe with a useful piece in an on-trend colour. Buy now, wear all summer.

I waxed lyrical last week on Instagram about my new skincare find. & Other Stories has long been a beauty editor destination for their sleek, minimally packaged make up collection but I’ve just jumped on the bandwagon after discovering their skincare range.

I popped in to track down a dress I had spotted online (not in yet, grrrr) but was diverted by the really chic looking white boxes staring at me from the shelves. Oooooh I love a range that delivers on looks – and with a simple, typographic font, recyclable plastic and cardboard (you can recycle in store once finished) and sch-amazing prices, I was hooked by the time I’d spotted Lemon Lip Balm.

I bought this eye make up remover, this cleanser, these cotton pads and this night serum and have been so impressed by the hydrating feel and silky way it has left my skin. I’m heading back next week for this moisturiser (above).

Speaking of my Instagram postings, I managed to snap up the under twenty quid H&M tassle clutch that was almost identical to the Mango one I missed out on last year. If you see it in store, buy, buy, buy – because it’s lovely and will definitely add a bohemian twist to a simple outfit. Another I love is this, from Mango’s current range. The detail is gorgeous – and let’s face it, who doesn’t love a tassle and a flash of electric blue?

These shoes HAD to be included. Leopard print, pointy, flat and less than thirty pounds? Yes please. Well done Next – I have been impressed by your shoe offerings this season.

And finally, you may have spotted that I’ve been wearing two rings on every outfit post here and on Insta. Well, they are from this collection, Mono-switch by Antonia O’Brien x SVP Jewellery and I LOVE them.

Designer Sarah Parham has created a black onyx and white agate range of jewellery that is statement without being in your face – plus 30% of all sales go directly to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. The mono-switch ring featured here flips around, so you can select from white agate or black onyx on gold vermeil or silver. But you can also buy rings in either of the fixed colours.  I also adore this investment piece – the Ultimate Mono-Switch necklace, which would look so cool worn with a simple grey tee and denim.

Jewellery that looks good and does good – sounds like a perfect pairing to me.
