I am absolutely delighted to be back with my first Real Life Fifty Friday of 2019. Even more delighted that it is a collaboration with our nations sweetheart – Penneys. The good weather of late has really put me in the mood for Summer and has kicked the outfit planning portion of my brain into overdrive. A natural topic to cover for this edition was S/S styles. I wanted to put together looks showcasing some of the key trends for Spring Summer ’19 in light and airy fabrics. Trends can sometimes be really tricky and well that to me equals sweaty.

I’ve always found it very hard to get a wide fit anklet to fit comfortably around my ankle. I had to come up with a comfortable and readily available solution myself.
