Astrid & Miyu Jewellery


Astrid & Miyu is "the" hot brand of the moment on social media, as seen on the lovely Victoria from @inthefrow and Suzie from @hellooctober. I had seen the name pop up a couple of time but always assumed that this brand was up there with Monica Vinader & Missoma in terms of price, but after seeing some beautiful pieces in a "What i wore in a week" video from @hellooctober, i decided to take a closer look. So pleased to find that not only are the pieces beautiful, on trend but also very reasonably priced - don't get me wrong it's not super cheap but all items come in under £100 - amazing! I really love the dainty but statement look of the pieces and that most are available in a variety of metals, perfect to mix and match your look.

Feeling inspired, i ordered the Wishbone ear cuff in rose gold. Beautifully packaged, quick delivery and a stunning item of jewellery - simple, delicate and adorned with white diamantes. It looks great with my silver and rose gold star studs, fits comfortably in the crook of my ear and although a little awkward to get on/off the first couple of time, it isn't budging which is great as it won't fall off. I decided to go for a cuff, as I wanted to treat myself to something but can't wear anything too big at the moment, as Mark is in a phase of grabbing hair, clothes, anything he wants but this looks great and is baby friendly. 

After buying the cuff, i now have my eye on a couple more pieces for my collection - a mixture of silver and rose gold (love to mix at the moment) and wanted to share them with a helpful shopping reference for hubby before Christmas!

Selected Femme Flower Printed Skirt - ASOSGingham Crop Frill Jacket - Topshop | Cloud Sweatshirt - Anya Hindmarch
Pom Pom Market Basket - Edit58 | Olivia Burton Begin To Blush Leather Watch - ASOS 
Fluro Stripe Smock Dress - ASOS | Spice things up Winking Camel pouch - Kate Spade
Parisian Blue Stripe Floral Embroidered Bardot Top - New Look | ACE Laser Cut Point Shoes - Topshop

With one day of sunshine so far this month, my thoughts have turned to the seasons ahead and some much needed colour and fun needed as temperatures finally start to warm up in the UK. 

Perfect for spring and ticks all the boxes for the gingham trend, this cute boxy jacket with fluted sleeves would work so well with both a jeans & tee combo as well as an casual LBD.

The main item on this wishlist i need in my life is the straw tote - a huge summer must have for the last few years this one is the perfect size and embraces my favourite trend of detailing....the pom pom beautifully. Not the cheapest version around but well crafted and gorgeous.

The final callout has to go to this amazing organza striped dress from ASOS. A gorgeous spring pastel palette and some interesting detailing - gathered waist and longer sleeves, making it a perfect dress. Would be great for a wedding but also great for daytime, dressed down with flat sandals and that straw tote.

AW17 Anya Hindmarch

Autumn Winter 2017

"Autumn Winter 2017 explores the contrast between the romanticised notions of winter and wanderlust and the darker motifs found in Old Norse folklore. This has been explored through modern interpretations of traditional leather craft techniques, including Scandinavian Kurbits and complex hand-woven leatherwork."

- Anya Hindmarch

AW17 Anya Hindmarch - Leather dragonflys

For me Anya Hindmarch is all about the accessories, although some of the clothing is beautiful and luxurious, it is the bags in particular that always inspire me and this seasons collection is no exception.

I love the opulence of this collection - from the gorgeous colour palette of rich burgundy and emerald green, interspersed with shots of yellow, baby pink and teal (not the traditional colours of winter) - to the variety of texture and unexpected elements of detailing. Colourful fur, knitted shorts and leather trims/embellishments dotted across the 38 looks within the show, adding to the wintery luxury and fun - although I will say the only part I was not so taken by was the socks and furry slides combination! All imagery in this post taken from Anya Hindmarch AW17

AW17 Anya Hindmarch - Favourite elements

I was a big fan of the leather work in the SS17 collection and was so pleased to see it back for another season. The intricate braiding and "paperchain" style straps adorning the classic bag silhouettes, add something new to a relatively simple accessory. I also love that some of the touches I have grown to know and love from Anya Hindmarch are still seen, the whimsical keychains and cartoon eyes, that sit perfectly aside the new.

AW17 Anya Hindmarch - all the details

Of all the pieces in the collection, the one item that has made my lust list is this satchel. Crinkled metallic leather and soft suede, in a gorgeous shade of teal, with a paper chain handle and pieced leather dragonfly motif. An exquisite piece of craftsmanship that would look amazing styled with my favourite navy wool coat.
