Casual Friday | The Gingham Capri Pants

Casual Friday | The Gingham Capri Pants

Posted on 4 Comments 3 min read

Yes, folks, it's back: it's Casual Friday - the blog series that just won't quit, no matter how much you secretly want it to! Actually, that's not quite true, is it? Casual Friday has, in fact, quit quite a few times now, but when we finished decorating the bedroom last month, ...

Casual Friday | Double Stripes

Casual Friday | Double Stripes

Posted on 11 Comments 2 min read

So, as you've probably worked out by now, for this 'Casual Friday' series (now into its third week in a row, people: go, me!), I'm choosing to interpret "casual" as simply "outfits in which I'm wearing trousers". By doing that, I can totally get away with wearing stilettos and whatever ...

"What's this?" I hear you ask - "Two 'Casual Fridays' in a row? Who is this woman, and what has she done with Amber?!" OK, so I probably won't keep this up for long, but the weather has made it easier to take outfit photos lately, and as you can probably ...

CASUAL FRIDAY | Gingham crops and boat-necked top

A couple of weeks ago I had a reader request for some more Casual Friday posts (Shout-out to Bee, if you're reading!) and honestly, that's all the encouragement I need a lot of the time, so here I am, awkward hand position and all! (Er, I was in the process ...

Casual Friday | Boden Bistro Crops and Grace Jumper

Casual Friday | Boden Bistro Crops and Grace Jumper

Remember last year, when I started a feature called 'Casual Friday', and it was a roaring success, in which I faithfully documented my weekly attempts to dress in a way that was casual-but-stylish (in other words, not remotely how I usually dress), learning a series of important lessons along the way, ...

Casual Friday | ‘For Best’

Casual Friday | ‘For Best’

K, so apparently I'm incapable of doing one of these Casual Friday posts without the help of my loyal sidekick, 'That Pink Bag'. Or without standing in this exact position, come to think of it. Or wearing heels, which, you know, aren't actually all that "casual". Never mind: I may look ...

Casual Friday | The Basic Breton

Casual Friday | The Basic Breton

Yes, that's right readers, it's the return of Casual Friday, the series in which I wear casual clothes. On a Friday. God, HOW do I come up with these things? Actually, the main reason I started these posts was because back in January I made myself a promise to try and ...

Casual Friday | Consignment Store 2: The Return

Casual Friday | Consignment Store 2: The Return

All the best stories have sequels, and it turns out all the worst ones do, too, because today I bring you the excitement-free conclusion to last week's 'Casual Friday' post. And you thought Good Friday was LAST week! (It's just occurred to me that, by writing these posts, I'm making it ...

Casual Friday

Casual Friday

OK, so I actually wore this outfit on Wednesday, not Friday. And I really hate indoor photos, which is why I try my best to avoid them. I realised that I hardly ever post any of my more "casual" outfits here, though, and I quite liked this one, even although ...

So, we got snowed in. AGAIN. The Snow Gods are obviously angry. Our sacrifice was apparently not enough - as Terry discovered last week when he optimistically tried to leave the house to meet a client, only to have to almost immediately turn round and head home again when he realised every ...

The Mysterious Case of the Missing Pint Glasses

The Mysterious Case of the Missing Pint Glasses

Slight change of format for this week's post, folks: instead of trying (and ultimately failing) to take a photo every day, I've just taken photos of the highlights. Or the lowlights, as the case may be. So here's what happened this week... THE MYSTERIOUS CASE OF THE MISSING PINT GLASSES This week, like ...

A Sunday in South Queensferry

A Sunday in South Queensferry

♥  Club Monaco 'Renay' crop pants  ♥ H&M denim jacket  (this season's) ♥  Zara top  ♥  Ted Baker shoes (old)  ♥  RED Valentino bag* (similar) What's this? A causal outfit, and it's not even Friday? I'm just showing off now, huh? These photos were taken yesterday, when Terry and I headed to ...

The Usual.

The Usual.

This outfit is from last Saturday, and consists of, wait for it, a 50s-style skirt and, OMG, it's a bardot-neck top! The Usual, in other words. Now, obviously there's absolutely nothing I can say about this outfit that I haven't already said about all of the other, near-identical, versions of it ...

The Mystery of the Thing That Was in the Garden

The Mystery of the Thing That Was in the Garden

This week, in lieu of Casual Friday, which, let's face it, wasn't that interesting anyway, here is a photo of a mysterious and possibly priceless artefact that Terry discovered in our garden, buried deep under the earth. Weren't expecting THAT, were you? Neither was Terry, to be honest. He's been out working in ...

Max’s First Week in His Own Room

Max’s First Week in His Own Room

Well, folks, we did it - we moved Max to his own room... even although doing it felt a little bit like ripping out my own heart, and then casually tossing it in the bin. So, you know, no biggie then. *shrug* No, I'm joking - it wasn't nearly that dramatic. ...

Kitchen Remodel. Week 2: Stairway to Hell

Kitchen Remodel. Week 2: Stairway to Hell

Last week, on 'Amber Paints Things White and Then Talks About it in Excruciating Detail,' I ... painted things white. And then talked about it in excruciating detail. This post isn't going to be much better, just FYI. I want to make that clear up-front, so none of you can come ...

Wardrobe Essentials: Trying some pieces from the Boden S/S 2017 Collection

Wardrobe Essentials: Trying some pieces from the Boden S/S 2017 Collection

So, as I mentioned in Friday's post, last week Boden sent me a super-exciting package filled with items from their current collection: it was one of the best days of my life so far, and I'm not even joking, seriously. The mint green coat and sweater from that package will be the ...

Just a very quick post today, to let everyone know that Rubin came through yesterday's operation just fine - and so did Terry and I, although, it has to be said, I think Rubin coped a whole lot better than we did. You can't actually see it in this photo, obviously, but ...

Diary | I’ve always been a storm

Diary | I’ve always been a storm

Anyone fancy another look inside my diary? Let's pretend you all said 'yes' to that, shall we? Here you go... Friday:  Getting hair cut tomorrow, so naturally hair has never looked better than it does today. Why does this always happen?! Consider cancelling appointment, then remember I've spent the last 6 weeks ...

February Fashion Wishlist

February Fashion Wishlist

Every month when I get paid, I sit down and think about what I'd like to buy that month.  Then I fall about laughing, because who do I think I am, one of the Kardashians or something? I WISH. (If I was, I would probably be Kourtney, just in case you're ...
