Why you should be an adult and hand wash all that Lonely Lingerie

Firstly, a little bit of backstory. I recently moved out to the fringe of the city to a sprawling old farmhouse on twenty-five acres. One my favourite revelations about country living is the seemingly more abundant free time available. When you’re not tempted to pop out every half an hour you have far more hours in your day, not to mention a greater sense of resourcefulness.

This has all given me a greater sense of motivation when it comes to taking proper care and hand washing all the garments that deserve it (like all those sets of Lonely Lingerie that I've bought). So I've written a piece on the benefits of hand washing over at Undone Journal - you can read it here. x

New: Lonely Lingerie's "Seon"

Always a highlight of most girls' spending calendar, Lonely Hearts released another Lonely Lingerie collection last week. As mentioned previously, I'm a huge fan of the range and I'm not even exaggerating when I say this is the only under wear I buy - because soft, sexy and vintage-inspired is all I want in life from my lingerie. Not to mention it's all too good to keep totally hidden under clothes - making it the perfect partner for flimsy slip dresses and sheer knits.

The latest range features updates on their super-popular Cyd style, some beautiful front-closure longlines and some racy new red numbers. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Flora set - and I splurged on the pink lacy Cyd set on payday. Both feature their recently introduced underwire (a godsend since my boobs decided to grow another cup size last year, TMI sorry) but still with the soft cups you know and love.

Accompanying the new range is yet another beautiful, softly lit and refreshingly real lookbook - which has come to be their trademark and point of difference in an over-saturated underwear market (not that they have any real competition.) This time round Seon takes centre stage, shot by Rene Vaile and styled by Zara Mirkin.

More from the lookbook after the jump.

The Row Fall 14, perfect as usual.

The perfection in the simplicity and the epitome luxury - particularly the finest cashmere that you'll never see. More accessible and imitable of course is that ethos, silhouette and palette. And of course the most sensible of footwear. Where everyone else is showing excess and hyper-speed trends, The Row is a breath of fresh air every season - like the ultimate reset button, just when you most need one. X

Zara always gets it so right.

Because really (although nothing looks better than when surrounded by ferns and houseplants) it's the best elements from Celine, Prada and Marc Jacobs at a price that's actually affordable. Not reinventing the wheel, but still giving you what you need and want from the unattainable Spring runways. Nostalgic tropicana prints, sportswear elements and cropped silhouettes. Everything you need right now for the last of Summer to live out your resortwear fantasies. Now it's just a matter of getting some of it to New Zealand...

Armani Privé

If I could wear one thing for the rest of forever it would probably be this (assuming that the rest of my life will be swanning elegantly around the summer house with a bloody mary.

Daria Werbowy in "The Edge Of Spring" for US Harper's Bazaar

The Daria Renaissance continues (not that she ever really left). There's a lot to be said for the beauty of age, confidence and life experience.

The way summer should be. Crisp blacks and whites with structural and simple jewellery.
