Featured: Not Dressed As Lamb in Today's Sunday Times Style Magazine

Hobbs SS15 black and white gingham dress
I'm so proud to have been featured in the Sunday Times Style magazine today! The photo they used was absolutely gorgeous (thank you to photographer Billie Scheepers for such a great shot) and I thought I'd share it in its full length glory on the blog. For the feature we were asked to wear our favourite SS15 pieces from the high street, so I went with Hobbs after falling head over heels in love with their fit-and-flare blue eyelet dress last year.

[I must just say that in contrast to Friday's post about how being a full time fashion blogger is totally unglamorous, this was in fact one of those rare - and special - times when it's quite the opposite. If only I could be doing this more often...!]

I'm wearing the Mono Twitchill Dress, a black and white gingham fit-and-flare midi dress, with the yellow Alderley bag and the black Skye courts. In case you missed it I documented the shoot (back in December) on my Instagram feed, and one of the best parts of the day was getting to meet ex Clothes Show presenter Caryn Franklin. I am so pleased to say she was beyond lovely, and didn't get creeped out when I got all fan-girly on her and gushed about how I used to love watching the show. And asked her about her beautiful silver hair. While she was trying to get changed. (God this sounds awful now I'm writing it down...!) If she was scared she was very nice and didn't show it :)

The feature is really great, but it did make me long for so many new things that I saw online whilst researching my SS15 picks (be warned, bank balance). Apart from the Hobbs dress and bag, I picked out some fabulous block heeled, embellished silver shoes by Asos and a pair of abstract-print trousers from new brand Finery London (see below).

Any favourite SS15 high street picks you've seen? What are you hankering after for the new season - do share in the comments!

  2. Congratulations Catherine! I am thrilled for you. You look beautiful and it's interesting to me the makeup direction they took with you! Did you do your makeup or did a makeup artist do it for you? I'm curious! XO, Jill

    1. Hi Jill and thank you!!! Yes I had a hair and make up artist do it for me - both were done very, very natural so I'm pleased that I ended up looking like myself. We were made up the way we wanted so I asked for natural face and beachy waved hair. Think I got both!! xx

    1. Thank you Greetje - that's the ultimate endorsement that you wanted to go and buy it straight away! But it's not sold out - just not available to buy yet. They said it's available in March so I guess it should be any time now. And yes, Billie was a really good photographer, she was great to work with :))
