High Street Pick of the Week

Unimaginable is probably at the foremost point of your brain if I was to say S/S12. Having been rocked by a cold spell that seems never ending (it will warm up, promise!) attempting to enthuse you with the array of colours, texture and pattern for the coming months feels like a fools errand. But press on I will with what you can get now for the future.

When I ran my style clinic to help raise funds for petit garcon's primary school pamper evening the other night as the snow fell outside I found myself dissin' yellow. It was in the context of telling the school mums to embrace colour and enjoy the veritable feasts of colour, texture and print hitting the high street stores. And then I go and spoil it all by saying 'maybe not to start with yellow'.

I love yellow and love wearing yellow but over the years I've learned to respect its power. It can illuminate or diminish how you feel in an instant when you put it on.On the one hand it is the colour of happiness and on the other the colour of madness. Tricky.

But these ochre suede strap sandals from Mint Velvet  at £99 bridge the gap between laughter and fear in a splendid sunny fashion.

  3. I've been wearing yellow, from rich egg yolk, daffodil to neon citrus, willing the Spring to come soon. But I've toned the effect with navy knitwear, grey jeans. It was never a colour I ever wore before but in the last sales that's all I picked up lol

  4. I like these a lot! And you have found a fab way to help raise funds for the school by giving style advice, far better than having to bake cakes. xx

  7. I love a yellow shoe, but I don't suit any shade of it anywhere else on my body. Just seen a pic of Diane Kruger in Prada with lovely chunky yellow sandals! Xx
