Jumping for Joy

Claire Lopez Jumpsuit Leave a Comment

Well now that the sun is no longer shining, I can’t say that I am exactly jumping for joy at the never-ending at-homeness of this and the weather means it’s definitely back to the need for comfy clothes. So this week I thought I’d take a look at the jumpsuit – which bar the obvious bathroom-going issues – can be …

Pretty Little Thing

Claire Lopez Broderie Anglaise, Embroidery 2 Comments

A summery white top is what every wardrobe needs. I love a bit of lace or broderie, the odd ruffle or any sort of detail really. If you go for a longer sleeved style, you can always layer a vest underneath on chillier days. So here are a selection from sleeved to sleeveless, embroidered to ruffled and lacey. Wear with …

The Summer of Straw

Summer is upon us, the sun is shining (thank goodness) and nothing says summer more than a bit of straw.

Posh Joggers

Claire Lopez Joggers, Trousers Leave a Comment

What has all the comfort of a jogger but with way more style? Well, actually it’s just a jogger but one that is in a different material.

The stars have aligned – both big kids have decided that working in their bedrooms is the way forward and the baby has also decided it is her nap time which means a few minutes to speed type this blog before I hear ….’Muuuuuuummmmmmy!’ from the top of the stairs and the baby wakes up.
