I’m a big fan of Whistles at the moment. They brought out their top selling “Carrie” skirt in red for autumn and their Pre Fall collection contains hints of the 60s as well as sharp tailoring, two big “wins” in my book.
These images were some of my favourite taken during my trip home to England a few weeks ago. Those who follow me on Twitter will recognise the image below as my profile background I was so in love with the breezy photos that resulted from spending some time in the fields near my childhood home:
The black top here (Reiss) is clearly a summer favourite I’ve featured it on my blog several times of late. It is perfect for the NY humidity, for oh-so-slightly-tanned-and-sexy shoulders and for looking smart and sassy as well as staying cool. The skirt is a staple wardrobe item of mine from Whistles, I wear it a lot but for some reason I haven’t featured it on the blog before. I love the tulip shape, the elasticated waistband (I used to hate these, now I love them – anyone else with me on elasticated waistbands??) and the silk fabric. It makes me feel very womanly and shapely.
Wearing this skirt back in England reminded me to check out the Whistles collection. It is a brand I tend to forget in the US as their stores are only in the UK, but of course they do international delivery. Below are my some current favourites from their collection:

So, Blog Reader – do you love Whistles as much as me? US readers, do you know much about this brand?
I’m now leaving Manhattan for a few days – heading to Boston and Cape Cod for a mini break, and catching up with Lani of MPChouChou and hopefully Lissy from A Girl In Boston whilst I’m away. I’m looking forward to a few days of eating great seafood, drinking cocktails and heading to the beach. See you on Friday as usual for Lingerie Lust, Blog Reader xx
