come on inside!

Favourite flower I adore anemones. My dad brought home a bunch in winter. He worked on the railway and it had been discarded from a consignment.

what you’re wearing

Abigail Heanly, 44 Tell us about your look… I love easy, modern classics in mostly neutral shades but I’ll often add a touch of colour. Today, I’m wearing a mac by Sandro and jeans from Mango. My cashmere sweater is by Demain DMN. I love this shade of turquoise. It just lifts your look! My boots are by Loeffler Randall and my bag is by Tory Burch. And the best bit of your body? My waist.
