Having always harboured an interest in fashion, possibly due to my Mum’s influence (who used to make her own clothes), it’s been so lovely to work closely with Stephanie at Marie & Lola as I genuinely like and would wear all her clothes.
I have no background in fashion, just a strong passion! I was a lawyer and then worked in recruitment for many years. While I had my two kids, I dabbled in property management in the UK and abroad and we now find ourselves spending most holidays in Ibiza where I love the boho vibe. I’ve found that many of Marie & Lola’s clothes are fabulous for both London and Ibiza living. I’m now enjoying making my passion become my work through Instagram and also through volunteering at Smart Works charity where I help dress and provide interview advice to women going for job interviews. It’s hugely rewarding to see the confidence we inspire and the success these candidates then have in the workplace.
As a regular model for Marie & Lola, I have the pleasure of getting up close to each seasonal collection on a regular basis - and I can't resist adding some of the pieces to my wardrobe each time. Here are my favourite picks from the current SS21 collection - ones I'll be wearing all summer long.
Steve denim jacket £69
This has been my best friend in the last few weeks, whipping it on and off on changeable days. I like to wear it over a long dress or a maxi skirt with a t-shirt and sandals or trainers.
Stella denim jumpsuit £65
This jumpsuit is so wearable from day to night. The elasticated waist at the back helps create a great shape and it has pockets which we all love! It works brilliantly with a whole plethora of shoe options - black retro Nike trainers, white ankle boots, Air & Grace sandals or Birkenstocks, paired with a trench or quilted jacket over the top.
Woven leopard print clutch £39
The best summer clutch. It can be used with any outfit and it's large enough to bring card games for entertainment, make-up, phone etc.
Celeste maxi dress in green £79
I love the boho vibe of this beautifully detailed dress. Definitely one to wear in Ibiza, London or anywhere else that the sun may be shining. I style it exactly as it is here with flip flops and sunnies on the beach!
Maeva maxi dress in coral £79
The colour of this dress is just stunning and you certainly make an entrance in it! I like to wear it with either white trainers, gold sandals or gold heels, depending on where I'm off to. Pop on a denim or leather jacket over the top, or pair with a pink cardi to keep warm on a summer's evening.
Sophia short sleeved blouse £48
This pretty little number takes the classic white summer blouse and adds some subtle twists in the form of gorgeous metallic gold print and the elasticated cuffs at the elbow. Keep it simple and style with denim shorts or jeans and tan sandals.
