Khaki leopard print dress

Khaki, tick. Leopard print, tick. Comfy, tick. Less than £25 (just), tick.

New Look dress (loads in store in Westfield Stratford), Marks and Spencer bag (now £8.99), Topshop sandals (now £25.99) I wanted a 14 but they only had a 12 or 16 in store. I couldn’t get the 12 done up on my chest so have the 16. I have put some weight on but I am not a 16 so I’ve just tied the belt at the back to make it more fitted.

Back soon.

Where’s the sunshine?

It has been rainy and not that warm today – where’s the sun gone?!

We went on a pre holiday shopping trip to pick up some bits for my girls today. I’d have rather spent the rainy day at the movies and playing games but alas, somehow my kids have developed a passion for shopping 😉 On that note, how overjoyed was I that they like Arket? Finally some style to add to all the unicorn tshirts and belly tops!

I wore Zara linen trousers (love these so much I bought a second pair), Mango cheesecloth top (this is old and another one I loved so much I have two of). I wanted to wear my new M&S gold slides but they feel like they are going to need some breaking in (and my ankle is sore from a battle with my stairs – see below) so I wore my favourite hyper comfy Topshop sandals (now reduced to £25) and an Anthropology headband. On the Topshop sandal note, did I already apologise to anyone who bought the Fleur tasseled sandals and found them as lacking in quality as I did? If not, I’m sorry.

Yesterday was chilly and wet too. I wore jeans for the first time in weeks!

Zara jeans, old Topshop leopard slides, old Stories silk shirt, ASOS earrings.

I fell down the stairs this morning (note to self – no more foot cream before bed) and have been feeling a bit bruised and sorry for myself all day. A few treats have cheered me up a but. You have to forgive the photos – I didn’t have the energy to change out of my Zara strides but trust that none of the tops will be styled like this. Also, H&M are crap for links as I can’t find most of what I bought on line. My apologies.

This is the best £7.99 I’ve spent in ages. I won’t wear it with these trousers and my specs (my daughter said I look like their art teacher) I tried it with denim shorts and love it. It is from the GP&J Baker for H&M range. I have a 10 which I am not so I’d say it comes up very large.

This is from H&M too and is just an easy throw on cotton top. I have a 12. (I can only find a similar white version here on line)

This I love as much as my kids hate it “you look like the genie from the lamp” was the best I got. Again, I’m not modelling it brilliantly, I won’t be wearing it with creased, baggy linen trousers more dark jeans and heels.

Finally a £12.99 cami from New Look in red leopard print. I have a proper bra on which you should just ignore.

Back tomorrow with a new dress.

Two New Things

It’s raining for the first time in weeks in London but I’ve made two sunny weather purchases anyway.

M&S gold slides They come in white too – both are currently sold out but their helpful customer services said they are due a restock.Here on my post bootcamp feet – ignore the sock marks.

Now these are gorgeous. Zara satin snakeprint Bermuda shorts.

Zara shorts, old Uniqlo silk shirt, Castaner espadrilles (some good deals here), Alexander McQueen clutch.

Back soon.

Two new cossies

Hot, isn’t it.

I bought two new cossies yesterday, both from M&S using the Sparks card 20% off beach and swim wear.

This is non wired but has boob pads inside. It has a scoop back which I can’t usually wear but somehow this works and gives enough support. I have a size 16 to make it fit my chest. It doesn’t have any tummy control but the print covers a multitude of crisp/wine sins.

This is a bit booby but I sized up so it’s less in your face but still flattering. What I like most about it is that the tummy is ruched but not that skin-tight flattening material. I can’t be doing with that in the heat.

I slipped this dress in too while I was there. I have it in black and it’s very easy to wear.

Back tomorrow with some outfits and new shoes.

School’s out!

What a few weeks! Life has been so hectic these past few weeks and I am too tired to do much other than share some recent outfits.

Stories dress (last year, sorry), Ancient Greek sandals mine are sold out but these are lovely and wow, I adore these), Chloe mini Marcie bag.Hush cami, Zara trousers, leopard heels.

Leopard print shoes, Claire’s Outlet anklet, Zara trousers.

Finally my favourite purchase in ages. Stories dress, Ancient Greek sandals. Size down in this dress. I usually wear a 40/42 in Stories and have this in a 38.

Back soon!
