True Blue

This jumper is not my usual look but it reminds me of the jumpers my mama wore when I was a kid and that makes me happy. I think it’s slightly large sizing, I have a 14 and a 12 would’ve been fine.

Not the greatest photo. My child photographer isn’t up for taking more than one shot anymore.

Zara jeans, old leather Uggs, blue jumper (I have a roll neck Heattech on underneath), Woolrich parka.

Back soon.

A black dress

This dress. What do you need to know?The top is a sweatshirt, the bottom is a satin slip. It’s comfy, flattering and you can eat as much as you want in it (Susie So So calls them buffet dresses) I expect I’ll be wearing it to our first Christmas celebration next weekend.

It’s hard to photograph. This is the best I could do.

Black dress, black heels.

Size wise, it comes in S, M, L. I ordered a L but am waiting for the M to arrive for comparison. I’d say size down.

Back soon.

Celebrations

I took my girls out for a fancy dinner this evening. A kind of Christmas party for their mama.

Zara jeans, Zara blouse, old Topshop boots.

The blouse is very similar to last year’s blouse made famous by Claudia Winkleman (she wore this current Zara one last month too). It’s 100% polyester but is fun to wear and I reckon it’ll be a festive season staple for me.

The earrings are a good bet for yourself or a loved one and are a tenner.

It’s a pretty crap week for us, it is the anniversary of when our mum died and we are going away for our annual countryside wind down.

Back soon, promise.

Sparkles

There I was in M&S looking for a present for my partner’s mum in the Per Una section. And there it was, this beautiful sparkly round neck top.This is not how I’ll wear it but I wanted to show a real life photo so this is from trying it on. Something very random seems to have happened to my hair too. You know when you need to add a certain something to your Christmas outfits but don’t fancy full on party gear. This top is it.

I am going to have a Christmas outfit try on in the next few days so will feature this again, I’m sure. Size wise I’d say it’s true to size. I am a 14 on top and that’s what I’m wearing. It’s been slated on the M&S website but I love it.

Back soon.

4 cheap(ish) treats

Ring holder, it’s a fiver but doesn’t look it. Hair adornment is a thing at the moment. I bought this £8 clip set last week. My family aren’t keen but I am going to persevere and I have my eye on these next. To my daughters’ delight (not) I bought a black hair bow clip too. I can’t find it on line but they had lots in store for £5.

I have bought the beautiful multicoloured version of this clutch for one of my sisters. It’s sold out on line but they have lots left in stores. This is black with sequins and very pretty.

This is £30 so not cheap but it is a bargain. These products really work and this set of 4 has over 50% off.

That’s me for now. Celebrations are already taking their toll on me and I need a nap, lots of water and some veg. I’ll be back soon.
