Having friends that double up as collaborators is definitely useful, especially when you can have impromptu photoshoots in-between glasses of prosecco and jumping in the hot tub!
A few weeks ago we went to a friend’s party in Cheshire and found a conveniently empty, moody field that was perfect for some blog pictures.

I wore this simple, streamline outfit for a client consultation at home. I love the texrured, tight, cycle style shorts with tights and a drapey top!

In the past, I probably never would have thought that pairing a t-shirt with a pleated chiffon maxi skirt was a good idea but recently I’ve been updating the categories I mentally assign clothing to.
I wanted a comfortable but striking outfit to attend a friend’s birthday drinks and this was definitely a hit.
The wedge trainers perfectly marry the contrasting elements and the accessories add the right amount of edge.

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my friend Cassie’s graduate exhibition at the Foundation Coffee House in Manchester. A couple of days earlier we had been shopping and I picked up a long tunic-style skirt and some lace brogues from H&M, which I decided to incorporate into my outfit. I don’t think I’ve ever bought such inexpensive shoes before but they are beautiful and surprisingly comfy.

It’s exciting to finally be able to share images from the Vaguard collection. I started working on the first items 3 years ago and bought new machines and learned new processes on the road to its completion.
To make this collection extra special, we have teamed up with designer, Richard Ayres , who developed a range of unique chainmail elements and jewellery, add an elegant touch of toughness to the range.
