It seems like I’ve been waiting forever since I first blogged that Leo and Carey Mulligan were to be together on screen in Baz Luhrmann’s re-making of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s brilliant novel ‘The Great Gatsby’. Still excited? Buckling my Mary-Janes as I type, off to see it tonight. *Scarlett
As a salute to the New Orleans Jazz Fest style that Karen Blanchard shared during her road trip, I’m planning my summer festival look. In the same way an over sized wellington boot makes legs look super cute in summer shorts, these chunky gladiator sandals in neutral leather will be similarly flattering for when my feet brave to go nude! I swear this sole was designed with the inevitable rain and British festival mud in mind… Thank you! *Scarlett

I’m pleased to share the much awaited Scarlett’s Starlet Road Trip Round Up from Brit Blogger Karen Blanchard of wheredidugetthat.com. I dare you not to have an American road trip in mind after reading and seeing this from Karen. *Scarlett
Being a Brit now living in New York, I’ve always been fascinated by being in America and if you’ve been following on the Kurt Geiger_US Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been on a road trip from New York to New Orleans with the hubby Michael. On a 9 day mini cooper driving trip, we ate shopped and sight see’d our way through states including West Virginia, Knoxville, Atlanta, Memphis (hello Elvis’ Graceland) and Nashville.
We found incredible vintage and consignment spots dotted across the states resulting in our mini being squashed with several gem finds (anyone catch that suede cape on the Kurt Geiger_US Instagram?)
I hit the ground running at New Orleans Jazz Festival. I was either stuffing myself with catfish po boy, white chocolate bread pudding, crawfish monica, seafood stuffed mushrooms, snapping photos of people or watching brilliant artists perform on several stages including Irma Thomas, The Black Keys & Fleetwood Mac.
Needless to say next year’s trip is already pencilled in…
NYC got Punk’d last night in honour of The MET Ball and the upcoming exhibition Punk: Chaos to Couture. There is a fine line when coupling punk with red carpet couture and not everyone got it right. Personally I liked the bleached look on Anne Hathaway. Bleached denim and dressed as a punk this week!

The summer calendar is coming in fast and hard to challenge the summer shoe wardrobe. I plan to squeeze almost all summer soirees into this weekend which just leaves one question- Which shoes can I wear to drink cocktails, eat strawberries, take picnics, play tennis, watch cricket, make ice cream and sand castles?! When wedged between a number of activities in one weekend, the wedge is absolutely the answer. *Scarlett
This week I wish I was wearing Karen Blanchard’s Kurt Geiger London heels (sure it would help the whole ensemble if my feet were flung out the window of a Mini Cooper on route to the New Orleans Jazz Fest!) But hey, we can’t all be there so I am watching from London with Love as chic Brit blogger Karen from wheredidugetthat.com road trips from New York to New Orleans. Follow KurtGeiger_US on Instagram to see the road trip live and I’ve saved a special spot for Karen on Scarlett’s Starlets to share all of the places she saw, ate and shopped! *Scarlett
