Misguided ghosts

Ray Ban aviators; Witchery cropped angora jumper; J Brand high waist jeans; Wittner desert boots; Lovisa necklace and spiky bracelets; Nixon timeteller

It's funny how certain things act as memory triggers. Certain smells, objects and places have the ability to bring back rushes of feelings, images and smiles.

For me yesterday, it was re-discovering two things:

The Nixon Timeteller my bestie Laura (a.k.a. Make Up Guru) bought me for my birthday all the way from Selfridges in London at the back of my bedside table and remembering the perfect afternoon spent with her at Jones the Grocer, laughing over hilarious stories over multiple burnt coffees and yummy vegan cookies.

The Wittner ankle boots Frankie bought for me as a surprise present last year - he knew I had stopped to look at them in the window every week - so one night, just because, he came into work with a big smile and a big shoebox! I dropped the work I was doing and did a big jump, a scream and gave him a huge hug. Best ever.

I've got you in my clutches

Alexander McQueen Oriental Samurai Skull silk-satin box clutch - NAP

Herve Leger Over-sized cord clutch

Stella Mccartney Falabella citrus-print cotton clutch - NAP

Diane Von Furstenberg Lytton Thai printed silk-satin clutch - NAP

Some very lust-worthy pieces of arm candy that are 100 per cent calf, pony and lamb friendly.

I'm headed to Europe in 23 days (!!!) - I have the feeling that the Stella McCartney citrus clutch in the centre is going to be the perfect travel companion whilst I roam the streets of Paris, Florence and Barcelona.
