The Lindy

In response to Lady Sarah’s questions: “…. Perhaps you could post the inside of a Lindy, what it fits and why you like it? Does it work better than say plume, Kelly or B (irkin)?” Continue reading


Travel: Long Haul, Long Weekend Part 3/3

Although this was my travel outfit, I knew to wear the Marni heels for a smarter look. On this trip, knowing the material dries well, I actually washed the tee shirt the following morning after my arrival only for Housekeeping to knock on my door offering complimentary laundry service literally as I hung it up over the bath. Note to self – check the laundry provisions at check in 🙂 Continue reading

Above (the wind whipped up just as the photo was taken sorry for the messy hair!) is a crop wide tailored trousers and silk shirt combination which is a favourite at home and away. From my last trip, I know it pays to have at least one pair of tailored trousers and a silk shirt . The day before I wore the same things but with a plain black tee. Continue reading
