As we say a fond farewell to summer and wrap this month up, allow me to present August’s shopping edit – a collection of every item I’ve loved or purchased this month.

As you’ll soon see, I’ve started to prepare for autumn in the wardrobe, with cashmere knits, woodland prints and camel tones taking centre stage. In the dressing room, I’ve taken advantage of the multiple rainy days we’ve had in recent weeks, by setting time aside for a well-deserved pamper! At home, I’ve discovered some truly beautiful seasonal scents in the form of diffusers, hand soaps and candles which have received no end of compliments from my team and guests. And in the library, alongside my debut book Evergreen, I’ve curled up on the sofa with two new reads – both of which can be found below.

Happy shopping!


That’s everything, I think!

I’ll be opening chapter nine and saying hello to Autumn tomorrow so I look forward to welcoming you back then.

Lydia x

    Hello Lydia! Just wanted to leave a note and say that I completely enjoyed the vlog today and felt inspired to take on a similar approach with my wardrobe as we ready ourselves to shift seasons (although a mild shift for me as I live in the hot Arizona desert!) Just wanted to share my appreciation for what you share and how you share it. I always leave your feed feeling inspired ( never pressured to purchase) and I love learning about some of these other luxury lifestyle brands.

    Happiest weekend ahead and happy September 1st!
