Tonight’s look has a really fresh vibe to it. Clean lines with a pop of colour from the top. The pinstripe midi skirt could be styled to be typically nautical or given a modern twist. I think some people are fearful of what to pair with navy. I like how the yellow looks alongside it and think the top will look great tucked into the skirt. I went with a white mid heel to tie in with the stripe of the skirt but a tan sandal would look well too. Just a little necklace to finish off the bare shoulders. I think i would feel happy wearing this one. Isn’t there something about the colour yellow that makes you happy. I…

I have been eyeing up this top for awhile now. My favourite bardot style neckline in a beautiful lace. I adore the finish on the sleeves and can see how flattering the cut will be on. I have paired it here with something different than my usual A-line skirts. Some really smart culottes in a modern print stripe. The colour palette is really soft and subtle with the light pink as the main tone. The solid black stripe makes them easy to tie in with basic black pieces in your wardrobe. As the pants finish at a culotte length it was a great opportunity to show a sandal with detail. The lace up design adds some interest but keeping them…

As i set down to map out this weeks post i had a completely different idea in mind. After a trip to Penneys and seeing this swimming suit that all changed. I have been trying to hold off on Summer shopping but i think when it comes to swimwear you have to strike while the iron is hot. Sizes get whipped up so quickly and before you know it there is only odds and ends left. Cover ups and accessories are the kind of things you can pick up here and there and you won’t feel it adding up.   When i think back to years ago, basic top and shorts were as exciting as it got. The odd kaftan…

What is in your bag? Phone, keys, perfume, hand cream, make-up, the kitchen sink? We carry around so much everyday including, big bulging, hefty wallets. If you are like me your purse is busting at the seems. Wishful thinking would have it stuffed with money and this would be a poor me / 1st world problem tagged post then. I just seem to have a billion cards, receipts, a sterling 2p coin for me trolley in Tesco. The list goes on. I need all this stuff. I think. Awhile back i had got really sick of my usual handbags. Yes i loved how they looked and styling them with outfits. Carrying them, not so much. Id taken to switching to really small bags or…

This now infamous day was once only something our neighbours across the Atlantic went wild for. Black Friday takes place every year on the day after Thanksgiving. A day where stores put on discounts or special offers. I learnt of the phenomenon through my addiction to good-bad TV. Extreme Couponing showed folk sleeping out in the cold to be first in line when the stores opened. There was actual stampedes and serious tactics used all to bag a good deal. In the past few years, the craze arrived on our shores. After seeing how much of a success it was more and more stores began getting involved. Black Friday now goes on ’til Tuesday now lol. With the inclusion of ‘Cyber Monday’. It is perfect timing…
