Coats, Crops & Falling Into Autumn

Frayed Hem Jeans

Yesterday I opened the door to feel Autumns chill biting my bare ankles. Golden leaves littered the doorstep and my breath formed steamy spirals in the surprisingly crisp morning air. Overnight the new season switch has been well and truly flipped and I for one am absolutely delighted! Fall is my favourite season. Firstly, September […]

Pimp My Closet…A Wardrobe Detox

Carrie Bradshaw's Wardrobe

It is a truth universally acknowledged that all girls of a certain age must be in want of Carrie Bradshaw’s closet! We can all picture the scene. Row upon row of slick, backlit shelving, Mr. Big down on one knee…I digress but you get the picture right? As we’re hurtling rapidly into a new season […]

Wardrobe Picks – Kick Flare & Camisole

Wardrobe Picks - Lady In Red

Aside from my traditional love of denim, there’s the odd occasion when a good pair of tailored trousers just hits the spot. This russet pair from Zara is unashamedly ‘new season’ – can you imagine a more perfect colour heading into Autumn? I’m fairly tall (clocking on 5,9″) and these sweep the floor even paired […]

If I was only allowed to wear one look forever more it would be ripped jeans, an oversized shirt, and heels. If I had to describe ‘me’ with a single outfit choice, this would be it! In my recent August Favourites post, I talked about my love affair with Levi’s. Introducing pair No2 – The […]

While selecting items for ‘wardrobe picks’, it became clear that the foundations of my wardrobe are laid in denim. A good pair of jeans and a t-shirt will take you pretty much anywhere these days so it makes sense that the bulk of my sartorial budget lies in an array of crops, skinnies and kick […]

The Hundred Pound Haul…The Massimo Edit

The Hundred Pound Haul - The Massimo Edit | jessicarhoades.co.uk

I feel I should begin this post with an apology and a caveat that I use the word ‘haul’ in the loosest sense of the word. Round two of the Hundred Pound Haul and we’ve already made a, somewhat elementary, blunder. As it turns out, Marks and Spencer was an excellent choice for our first go – […]

Pearly Queen…One Jacket, Three Ways

Pearly Queen - One Jacket Three Ways | jessicarhoades.co.uk

I have a bit of a thing for pearls – I chose them to adorn wedding dress (quite the endorsement) and there’s just something so bloomin chic and regal about those little luminous orbs. Polished and modern yet a true classic. I’m also a jacket lover – sharp blazers, leather bombers, cropped tweed – a good […]

My Top 5 Holiday Must-Haves

We have just returned from our first family holiday so I thought it might be a good idea to put together a list of my summer essentials. Now, I started writing this before we actually left and now I’m back I’m of the opinion that the ultimate holiday must-have (when traveling with a 10-month-old) is […]
