A warm welcome to my new purple suede satchel from Siren. Purples and pinks are colours I am particularly fond of, so it wasn't too difficult to find other pieces in my wardrobe to compliment it.

A breakfast of traditional jam and bread, good at any time of the day really. But not just any jam and bread - Strawberry & Champagne Jam from the East India Company along with cold unsalted butter spread generously across an Artisan Spelt and Sunflower Bloomer. And lots of orange juice and black coffee of course.

It is so rare to have good weather for Easter, apparently it has not been this hot since the 1940's. So to make the most of the warm weather before it turns into the cold and wet Britain that we know and love, my family and I went along to The Botanic Gardens and Oriental Museum at Durham University in the North East of England, not far from where we live. The gardens were just the right size for a walk around and some picture taking, with lots of stop offs at garden benches, to eat a picnic and a browse in the gift shop.

The inspiration behind this collection is quite fantastical, a curious blend of retro-romance and future chic, kind of like mixing the wardrobes of Betty Page and Ziggy Stardust together!
I introduced you to the Mimco promotion, Whispers & Anarchy the other day with a brief synopsis of the story behind the promotion. When it came to styling my own shoot, my thoughts were very much in the Beatnik era of the 50's/60's as well as being inspired by the Mimco video itself, strolling through the leafy streets of Paris - check it out for yourself below. I chose another bag from the collection, a very striking mustard leather pouch bag, which I see being a stylish accessory for many more outfits to come.
