Who likes short shorts...






Hayley likes short shorts.
Especially these 7 for all mankind denim ones which fit like a glove. My four days on Koh Samui Island were pure relaxation - on this one occasion we were going to rent some bikes to cycle to the nearby village, hence my Puma suede trainers and cotton shirt for extra comfort from a hot bike seat. A bra top and small denim shorts are not something I would usually wear together but there are no rules when you're on an island, especially in heat nearing 40 degrees. It's exactly that kind of style freedom I love.

Review: Peninsula Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand



It should be clear from the start here that I didn't spend the night at the Peninsula Hotel - if only. Instead I spent the afternoon having a hotel tour followed by a delicious lunch poolside and this is what my review here will be based on.

I got in touch with the Peninsula before I left for my recent Thailand trip as it's a hotel I've always admired, visually with its positioning on the lake front but also through word of mouth - it's name resonates with luxury worldwide. They were happy for me and my friend Gemma to come by for lunch and as I write my travel diary blog, offered to give us both a grand tour of their stunning premises.

Dungarees meets tailoring


Dungarees - Oxfam Blazer Jacket - Austin Reed Shirt and clutch bag - Boden Pumps - Carvela
Sunglasses - Storm at TK Maxx




This weekend, I had a busy couple of days with several plans, including last minute crashing at a friends house on Sat eve without a change of clothes for the next day. Thankfully I had left my dungarees there previously meaning I could wear them home. This meant teaming my new grey blazer jacket from Austin Reed with my dungarees and to be honest, I really liked the contrast.

I practically live in my dungarees come the weekend, especially if I'm just hanging around at home. These retro ones I picked up at an Oxfam in Wood Green, North London for less than £10.00 - I've definitely got my money's worth of wear out of them.

It goes to show how versatile both denim and a blazer jacket can bethe rest of my look consists of a checked flannel shirt and clutch bag, both from Boden and my Carvela black pumps.

How beautiful is London at the moment with all of the cherry blossom trees in full bloom? Spring is my absolute favourite season.
