If you remember my confession last week of an unquenchable craving for classic pieces, you’ll remember I said it was a prelude to a guest blog I’d written for Isabella Oliver. Well, that post is now live on their website, so I figure it’s only right to share it with you.

It shouldn’t be hard picking my favourite pieces from a retailer who shares the same style philosophies as me – classic, elegant, timeless and practical – but my indecisive nature gets the better of me at the best of times, let alone when I’m pronouncing how to style a store’s staples.

Still, that urge for something that’ll stand the test of time prevailed.

See below for my top picks from Isabella Oliver and my favourite pieces to style alongside them…
