We’re loving the striking metallic blue India flats from the new collection and the Jane Winkworth Lavinia bucket bag from French Sole’s handbag collection.

Holiday Hotlist: The Carnation Anti Blister Stick

For me, the worst offenders are French Sole ballerinas. Not cheap flip flops or wet espadrilles, or *gasp* jelly shoes – it’s those pretty flatties that get me every time. At that precious moment of Spring when the boots come off and the carefree footwear comes out, on they go and ‘ouch ouch’ go the blisters. Then it’s a Summer of Birkenstocks 🙁

So how thrilled were we to discover this clever little stick from Carnation Footcare; created with one goal – to ease the wearing of Summery shoes.

Looking a bit like a glittery pritt stick, you can just pop this in your handbag (or changing bag) and all it takes is a little slick of clear balm onto the area that rubs, or is likely to cause a boo-boo and away you go, like a carefree sandal wearing goddess.

How to wear Spring florals…

Brrr… there’s a chill in the air and we’ve cranked the heating up a notch, poured ourselves another cup of peppermint tea and we’re thinking about making another casserole for dinner tonight…

Let’s cheer ourselves up with some ditzy Spring florals – and maybe next week we might actually get to wear them…

The Henrietta Floral flats from French Sole: add a touch of blossom to your toes, without actually having to bare them. These luxe leather flats come in baby pink or bluebell blue and have a teeny, elegant heel…

The Kensington Porcelain Blue umbrella by Fulton – let it rain, who cares, we’ll be twirling this floral brolly…

The Floral Grey Scarf from The White Company – who says floral can’t be monochrome? This one is super chic and made from merino, so gives enough chill cover for an alfresco glass of wine in a pub garden.

The Francesca Jacket in Ivy Botanical by Boden: no one does florals like Boden, and this boxy jacket looks great with jeans and a white tee – or dress it up with a tea dress and pearls!

Rosie for Autograph Silk French Knickers: add blooms to your bloomers with these lovely silk panties from M&S.

And finally, spritz a little Springtime scent; we’re loving the Gucci Flora Garden range – especially the new Generous Violet one.
