Last Sunday we spent the day with Rachael, Richard, Holly & Henry for a roast at the Olive Tree, one of my parents' restaurants followed by park time with the kids and a long walk in the Autumn sunshine to work off the large lunch.
I was really honoured to guest post over at Transatlantic Blonde's fabulous What I Wore Wednesday slot last week. I adore a great hat and I picked this bad boy Fedora up from Oxfam for £8 (originally M&S and never been worn before) to add to my collection.
A stripe-lover, this Sunday I wore my latest buy from Phase Eight, a 'Stripe Cindy Tunic' in Mushroom/Ivory for a laid back lunch and post cinema trip. Loving discovering cool backgrounds for these shoots too.
The other day, I received an exciting email from online sunglasses boutique Pret a voir asking if I might like some Chanel sunglasses to model and review. Obviously this took a lot of careful thought and consideration as you can imagine....So about half a millisecond later, I gracefully accepted while dancing round the living room!
A lady can never have too many dresses and now with so many discounts and reductions online, it's too hard to resist the summer sales! Here are my pick of Isme's pretty summer dresses from occasion wear to holiday frocks...and you can use the Isme discount code to get money off these purchases too. Happy shopping!
Those who follow this blog you'll know that I adore clothes; designer, high street, vintage, clothes for me, the kids and heck even sometimes clothes for the husband and my Dad (at least I'm helping the economy)-I just hope my accountant's not reading this!
We all do it, put ourselves down, tell ourselves our bodies are not good enough, slim enough, curvy enough, toned enough and nothing puts the pressure on like the summer months. Well it needs to stop. And now.
I promise to bring you the best of fashion finds as I source them, be it from PR samples to good old retail therapy. I can hear my husband heavy breathing as I type, but it's my duty to you fashionistas, right! Hehe!
So I'm very nearly back into most of my old wardrobe bar a few items which is exciting and my post baby body deserves a bit of retail therapy so what better excuse than to splash out on some pretty summer dresses in time for the sun coming out! Here are my picks of the latest fashion buys I've got my eyes on.
Like most women, I adore beautifully made hand bags and shoes. They can transform an outfit and instantly reflect who you are or how you feel that day. What's more, bag and shoe shopping do not rely on a certain body size or shape and suit everyone. Last week I decided to treat myself to an investment Mulberry bag.
Style Spotlight shines a light on my style picks. I adore the British brand Mulberry and couldn't resist adding to my collection with this brilliant, bright orange continental wallet. Luckily, I picked it up in the sale for £180 from £225. What's more, in that colour, I can never lose it in my bag. Perfect.
