Joules' SS14 collection is full of dreamy, colourful, wearable pieces that will fast track your wardrobe into spring. Top of my wishlist is the gorgeous kaleidoscopic Hotch Potch stripe tee (no.6), updating the classic Breton with a hit of colour. Tunic dresses are one of those easy throw on pieces that look insouciant and cool, the pretty floral tunic (no.1) is a sartorial no-brainer and also comes in chambray, just add tan sandals and you're ready for summer. Vibrant leathers are also a big hit in the collection, the hot pink Richmond leather tote (no.5) is a smart but softly structured style, perfect for the 9-5 in summer. What do you think of the collection?

1. Lula floral tunic, £69.95. 2. Light blue satchel, £99.95. 3. Merrin knitted stripe jumper, £69.95. 4. Chrissie floral skirt, £49.95.  5. Richmond hot pink leather tote, £169. 6.

On Saturday the sun shone brightly all day in London, and I smelt the optimistic promise of spring in the air. It's easy to forget the charm of the season in the cold, dark depths of winter, but now I have had a taste of S/S I am excited for the promise of budding flowers, frolicking lambs and fluffy cloud-strewn blue skies. Taking one look at my winter wardrobe - comprising of a palette of charcoal, black and navy - I know it will be soon to banished to winter storage; dark colours just don't feel 'right' when the outside world is so colourful and full of life. Top of my seasonal wish list is Christopher Kane's anatomical flower tee (no.1), the coolest way to do floral prints for SS14. Stripes have that fresh, breezy spring-appropriate look and Whistles' Izzy tee (no.5) has a boxy cut to update the classic breton for the season. It might not be toe-baring weather just yet, but I will also be snapping up Clarks' 'Studio Punch' jewelled acid bright sandals (no.4) before they sell out - they offer the Prada look without the eye-watering price tag. Have you purchased any spring fashion yet?

I'm kicking off my LFW collection coverage on LFF with the Edeline Lee for the simple reason that I want to wear everything in this AW14 collection right now

The ultimate fashion dilemma? What the hell do you wear to London Fashion Week IN A STORM. Turns out I wasn't the only one baffled by the weather - the street style offering on LFW days one & two was a washout (excuse the pun) with practical parkas & umbrellas concealing the best looks. So, here's what I went for

Valentines day: whether you're a lover or a hater, I think it's a fun excuse to dress up in something feminine and romantic. A pop of pink, a flash of red or a cute heart print should set the mood. Saying that, I am not a fan of temporary trends, so the below edit has been selected with post St Valentine's day in mind - all are classic buys that will work all year round. Whatever you're doing, don't forget to treat yourself too!

1. Markus Lupfer tee,, £94.602. Nails in Lacquered, Topshop, £53. Chinti and Parker heart print cashmere sweater,, £3504. Dene red mini skirt, Reiss, £1105. Ariel pumps, John Lewis, £656. Diamond and gold heart pendant, Astley Clarke, £6507. Iris and Ink stripe tee, The Outnet, £45

UGG Australia have taken a fashion forward direction of late - signing up fashionable faces that include Suki Waterhouse, Chloe Norgaard, Bip Ling, Natalie Hartley to front their SS14 campaign and advise on style from the brand’s ‘Creative Council’. It’s a cool move that meets LFF approval – the kaleidoscopic, colourful collection breathes new life into the classic boots. UGG sent me a pair of the Alloway slippers (suitable for indoor and outdoor wear)  to review to review (link below in my gallery)  – this is my 2nd pair from the brand and I am really impressed with the quality – they’re sturdy, well made shoes. And the luxurious feeling of sheepskin underfoot makes cold winter mornings (almost) bearable. A couple of tips: sizing runs small so choose a size up for a comfortable fit and avoid wearing the slippers on rainy days as they will loose their shape. What do you make of the campaign?

I was really impressed with the Land's End SS14 collection when I checked it out at the Bright Light PR press day before Christmas. There were lots of pieces with a J.Crew / Boden  / L K Bennett type feel, only with more pocket friendly price tags. A whimsical floral theme runs through the spring / summer offering - highlights included printed silk slingbacks, breton tees with jewel detailing and colourful floral macs ready for spring showers. Here's the LFF edit:
