Notes From A Stylist – what we did in July

I love the month of July for a number of reasons, first up it’s my birthday at the beginning and who doesn’t love a little celebration here and there? Secondly the Notes From a Stylist blog gets a good old dose of chill time, with kids finishing up at school and vacations looming, schedules slow down and it’s a great month for actually enjoying life.


This July was no different we started out with a trip to Wimbledon in the heatwave… seems odd to think we actually had a heatwave way back then after all this dull Brit weather… None the less, hot it was, so we looked at what to wear in such conditions.

More recently I popped into a preview of new documentary IRIS about legendary style doyenne Iris Apfel. The evening was organized by J.Crew and we got to listen to the style icon herself put the world to rights with Caroline Issa – fab!


On the fashion front, we road tested cotton beach dresses, summer maxis and brill website SmartBuyGlasses.

I headed to some awesome press days previewing Autumn and Winter offerings… from bang on trend cold weather fashion at Reiss, to shoegasmic heels at Rupert Sanderson and an amazing Christmas presentation at one of my fave stores The White Company.

The Mod Fam Food kitchen didn’t get much down time last month with Amanda creating some delicious summer recipes. My favourite was the prawn salad above which we posted this weekend. But hot on its heels was the summer tartlets recipe which I made last week and yes… it was super simple & yum. Take a look at our food pages for more inspo.
