why i do what I do.....

I am now Fashion Director at Glamour magazine but following on from the success of my weekly column in the Sunday Times Style magazine I thought I would bring this page to life every week and also give you the chance to comment. This page is not for me to dictate what you should be wearing but to offer ideas on how to put wearable outfits together. Its not what you wear it's how you wear it!

The Shirt Dress.....

The shirt dress is the effortless piece of summer clothing but why not experiment with colour and try bold 70's or graphics prints.  This is a vintage dress by LANVIN and you can WIN the one am wearing in the blog today just retweet the blog or leave a comment below to enter!  Deadline Saturday 24th May...good luck!

TIP... casual summer dressing doesn't get easier than this all you have to do is add a cool accessory like oversized sunglasses to promote this bold look but adding a trainer will totally update a vintage look (I am also having a big romance with these AF 1 style of trainer as they seem to look good with everything!)

The White Shirt.....

What is the most classic thing you can own in your wardrobe this summer?  answer: a white shirt ... and here are two of my favourite options a cool short sleeve option and a masculine inspired textured one.  This week you can WIN the one am wearing in the first look just leave a comment below or retweet the blog to enter, deadline Saturday 17th May...good luck!

TIP... layer with white to update a classic shirt and add a sexy skirt for a pop of pastel tone plus all white trainers its the way to go for cool summer dressing styling tip is to leave collars up for a touch of the riviera

TIP... personalise your shirt this summer with your initials which looks great on a collar, cuff or pocket and give it a mod edge with ripped skinny jeans and simple white trainers just pick the jeans stile that suits you to replicate and big open short sleeve are flattering for the upper arms and also loose and easy for summer

Natalie Hartley Cycles.....

The cycling craze has hit London and these two places are the must go to places for my Triathlon training!! 

These places are the new gym. 

 Think cycling in the dark with pumping music its hilarious and a bit stupid but bloody hard work!!  

Equipped with great showers and products for after the class (Psycle has Bumble & Bumble products in the shower) its a quick 45 mins and showered within the hour (thats my kind of class!)  

Happy cycling!
