The summer holidays are finally over and I’m pleased to say I survived! Three children off school for six weeks at the busiest time of my working calendar is always a challenge to say the least but thanks to a lot of organised activities and some help from my wonderful parents we made it through! The children I have to say, were really ready to start school again. Joshua started secondary school on Tuesday which was a big emotional day. Seeing him walk nervously but with an air of confidence through the gates in his smart blazer and slightly too long navy trousers (reminding me that he’s still my little boy) filled my heart with pride. It felt like a very different experience from his first day at primary school, when he sobbed and clung to me before I left. How much he has grown since then.

Having the children back at school has finally freed up some time to get back to my blog and to working with brands I love. Pure Collection is no exception! If you haven’t come across them yet, then you are sure to fall in love with their gorgeous collection and they have just launched their Autumn range. As part of my collaboration with Pure Collection we have a really exciting competition to bring you too!


Everything at PURE is inspired by the luxury of cashmere (which I am a big fan of!). Soft cable cashmere or bold argyle merino knits, delicate silk blouses, sophisticated pashminas and feminine wool tailoring are all designed with great attention to detail, cut and fit. As a brand, they love colour and bring the statement colours of the season complemented with new neutrals, to build wardrobes with ease, confidence and always a touch of Yorkshire charm, given that they are based in Harrogate!

This season’s collections, whether Modern Heritage, Colour Mix, or The Luxe Edit, reflect a sense of relaxed and timeless appeal and showcase their expertise, heritage and love for cashmere and silk.

Creating a look of effortless style, their clothes feel beautiful on and you can really feel the quality. I fell in love with the Ponte and Faux Leather Stretch Trouser (featured in this post) which add a rock chick edge to an outfit and which I’ve combined with one of their lace jersey camisoles as a base and their Silk Textured V Neck Blouse (all part of their current collection).
