The Must-Have Layer I Can’t Stop Wearing

There are certain wardrobe classics that I always find myself going back to at particular times in the year. Camel coats in winter, slip dresses in the summer, and now – denim jackets for Fall. They’re the perfect transitional layer that adds a certain laid back air to your look. And now that most of my jeans aren’t really fitting, it’s nice to get a dose of denim in a more comfortable way. I’m definitely missing my high waisted jeans at the moment!

I have several denim jackets in my closet, and I don’t feel guilty about it. Oversized, blue, black, white – and now this cool cropped version with a raw hem? Yes please! Each one is completely different, and perfect for many looks. I wanted to go for a slightly edgier feel with this outfit, since this dress is on the girly side. Transforming the vibe was as easy as throwing this jacket over my shoulders.

Styling tip? If you’re wearing a long dress, a shorter top layer will tend to look more flattering – especially if you’re wearing flats like I am here. It balances out your proportions, and makes your legs look much longer! I wanted to bring out the floral print on the dress by adding a pop of red with these cool slides – you guys know how obsessed I am with this style (read my post on mules and slides here). Get my look below!

    Love these pieces together. I would love another fall camel coat blog post . I know your temps are still high but in Michigan it is really cooling off. I would love to find a great camel coat to wear before I have to pull out my parka. Lol

  • Happy Memorial Day weekend!
I can’t even handle the cuteness of this little gardener 🌱 👶
Ps. Our matching dresses are @shopdoen
  • How fascinating is this: the part of our brain controlling memory and emotion, is directly linked to the nerve at the back of our nose. Meaning, certain smells have the ability to completely change our mood and outlook on life. Here's a deeper dive into how you can instantly improve your mood with the strike of a match or a spritz of perfume - link in bio ⠀⠀

  • I wish there was a magic wand to 1) not feel so tired, and 2) get rid of the dark circles under my eyes! Agreed? A double latte helps with the former, and omg - @no7usa Dark Spot Correcting Booster Serum has helped enormously with the latter. Remember I talked about this brand a few months back? I've used it since I was a teen in the UK and I'm thrilled I can easily buy it in the US. Grab yours @Walgreens and tell me how you like it! #No7Laboratories #No7USA #ad
  • One of my best secret shopping spots? @Ebayfashion! You wouldn’t believe the designer gems I’ve found on there- especially designer handbags. Their authenticate program means you can shop luxury jewelry, watches and bags with full confidence! http://liketk.it/2BTs3 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #eBaystyle #HappeningoneBay #ad
  • Did you know that in the US, a woman still makes only 80% of what her male counterpart does? In the UK last year, men made nearly 12% more than women for the same jobs. The wage gap is real, and still an issue. So, what can YOU do right now at work to be taken more seriously, and help close this gap?

  • Who's ready for a new Summer thriller to read?? #TheNightBefore by @wendywalkerauthor is one of the few books that can keep me up past 10pm these days (any mums out there relate?), in fact I can't put it down whenever I get a free minute to read. It's finally on sale now - check the link in my stories to purchase, and let's start a Summer book club. But whatever you do, do NOT spoil the end for me just yet! #InPartnershipwithWenderWalker
  • Inflammation is a buzzword lately. It’s been linked to more serious illnesses than I can count, weight-gain, bad skin - and now studies have linked it to depression. People are now eating anti-inflammatory foods in LA like locusts! So much so, there’s currently a celery ‘shortage’, and the price of celery juice (another massive trend) has risen by 200%. Gisele and Tom Brady famously follow an anti-inflammatory diet, designed by their chef. So what IS inflammation, and how do we reverse it? Click the link in my bio for some⠀⠀
mind-blowing health info, and to try my tropical turmeric smoothie bowl (it’s anti-inflammatory!)🍍 http://liketk.it/2BSjG #liketkit @liketoknow.it ⠀⠀
  • One bonus of the cold (‘cold’) weather in LA... I can wear my new vinyl trousers
  • I always remember reading an interview with a movie star, who called her stretch marks, her ‘tiger stripes’. I’ve had mine since I was 18, and always felt very self-conscious. Reading that interview flicked a switch for me- and totally changed my perspective. Since then, I’ve worked with women of ALL shapes, ages and backgrounds, to help them feel more confident in their skin: sometimes when I’m filming a makeover show, sometimes if I’m writing an article, or working with a charity like Step Up. Whether that’s how to walk into an interview, how to prep a resumé, what to wear, or how to look after your body- in particular- your skin. A few years ago, I wrote a book (Front Roe), about it all. Then I had a baby, and my relationship with my body changed again, for the better. I was in absolute AWE at what the female body can achieve. Listen, every single one of us has body hang ups, cellulite, scars, shapes we don’t always love. But what it took me time to slowly realize, is that our bodies are freaking hard-working, clever, miraculous machines. They are! So I’ve written about some of the tips I’ve used in the past to feel more body confident (and ps, the science behind it all, is fascinating). Click the link in my bio to read. And please as always, share some body confidence journeys of your own below... @Olay #OlaySun #FaceAnything #ad
  • Polka dots and caffeine... I’m happy
