Tuesday’s Temptations

This week my Tuesday’s temptations have been chosen from & Other Stories,  as I look towards the summer holidays and try to plan some outfits.  I love block primary colours and mixing them all up.

This outfit takes you from pool to evening just by adding other accessories.

The dress

A perfect dress to wear to the beach and then out for the evening if necessary.

The bag

I am very late to the party with the raffia bags, but I really like this one with the leather strap detail. The size is perfect to hold your beach towel, suncream and whatever else you want to put in there.

The sandals

I love a comfy but pretty sandal and these do just the job.

The bikini

This style of bikini is perfect to give shape to a boyish figure but also to enhance those with curves.

The hat

Everyone needs a big hat, no more said.

The purse

Just because it’s red and pretty.

Now all we need to do is go on holiday!

Obsessed with The George

I recently posted on Instagram about The George in MontClair, New Jersey. It has been designed by beauty legend Bobbi Brown. I have become slightly obsessed with the interior, it is just beautiful and many of the interior design magazines have been writing about it (The Cut, Architectural Digest etc).  She uses red and the union jack against dark greys very carefully which gives the rooms just the right amount of pop.

So I had a good look around to see what great accessories you can use to get a similar effect to update your greys and whites. Using the reds, tartan and union jack subtlety just like Bobbi Brown.Bear and Bear throw

This large tartan throw over the bed will be perfect to give some bright colours to your bedroom. Tartan throw by John Hanley – Bear and Bear

Union jack cushion

I love a union jack cushion, but my husband won’t let me have them. Don’t worry I don’t usually listen to him so they will appear shortly.

Union Jack Cushions – Red Candy

Red telephone

A Wild and Wold 746 telephone from Robert Dyas. These phones always speak to my love of retro and there is no need to worry about getting your finger stuck on this one, it has been totally updated.

 

I love this Faux Book which actually has gin inside (you’ll look well read but can have a sneeky drink) available form Fortnum and Mason by Chase Distillery.

Union jack mini

You can’t get more British than a red mini with a union jack on top – This will add a bit of fun to the room without going ott from TK Maxx

telephone closet

Not so subtle but I blinking well love this, it is a closet, yep a closet. I can’t tell you how much I want this. If you get it, I want to see pictures!! From Maison du Monde

I also wouldn’t be able to help myself from jumping out of it in a superhero outfit!

Thank you
