Not only was yesterday a windy and chilly day, but I was also suffering from a horrible head cold (courtesy of hubby) but still we headed out and tried to get some decent pictures. As you can see, we mostly failed (!) but I wanted to show you my new loafers, fishnets and a cute embellished top anyway. Loafers The navy loafers were bought from Massimo Dutti in the January sales and they are very cool (if I don’t say… Read more »

I’d been wanting to buy one of these for ages but hadn’t found one that I loved. Until, that is, I walked into one of my favourite stores, Massimo Dutti, and finally found the perfect bodywarmer. It also just happened to be reduced from €60 to €50 at the time! Clearly it was meant to be. I do have another body warmer in my wardrobe; a grey one that I bought from Fat Face a few years ago. I love it… Read more »

Finding the perfect dress to suit your figure

I’ve mentioned before how difficult it can be finding the perfect dress to suit your figure. But after wearing my cute yellow dress a couple of weeks ago, I received so many compliments that I decided that this must be the style for me. So I went right out and bought another one! Clearly it’s not exactly the same, as this khaki cut-out dress has a different shoulder detail, but it hangs the same – skimming over the bust and flares out just a little over the stomach and hips….

Most comfortable jeans ever1

I recently bought (another) pair of jeans from Massimo Dutti and they are the most comfortable jeans I’ve ever had. I mean, seriously, they’re like wearing pyjamas. The fabric is so soft and wonderful I could wear them all day! Not only that but I also love the button – isn’t it cute?   With a wide leg and sitting fairly low on the hips, this is one pair of comfortable jeans that will be cherished over the years. However, after… Read more »

Denim on denim – you either love it or hate it. I happen to love it (most of the time) probably because I happen to be in love with denim. I’m a massive fan of jeans (which, I’m sure you’ve noticed by now). I love how versatile a great pair of jeans can be. You can dress them up or dress them down yet you’ll always be comfortable. And comfort is something that is really important to me. Denim on denim is… Read more »

I’ve always loved the gypsy top but the ones I’ve tried on over the past few years have left me feeling a little uninspired until I found this one (in the sale earlier this year) from Pull & Bear. It literally cost me a few euros – a total bargain! I put it on for the first time the other evening and decided I didn’t like the sleeves so I chopped them off! I think it’s much better with a… Read more »

I bought these wide-legged printed trousers last year from Bershka. I just loved their ethnic vibe the second I laid eyes on them. Plus they’e a bit different from my usual jeans, so it makes a nice change! They’re also perfect for the warmer weather as the fabric is quite thin. I really think that this is the perfect summer evening outfit. I wore them for an evening out to a friend’s house for dinner (a yummy bbq) last weekend… Read more »

I LOVE wearing animal print. I’m not talking all over animal print, mind you. No, that would be breaking all the style rules, right? Well, two fingers to style rules. Who needs ’em anyway? But I’m digressing, I like to add just a hint of it here and there. Like here, I decided to wear my Massimo Dutti leopard print moccasins and because it was a bit chilly (in mid-May, it’s insane!), I also added an animal print scarf for the heck of… Read more »

I bought the most fabulous pair of blush pink brogues online from Clarks last week and when when they arrived I was absolutely delighted with them. Inspired by the gorgeous Lizzy of What Lizzy Loves, I simply couldn’t resist splashing out. After having a look through my wardrobe to see what to wear with them, I soon discovered that brogues with skinny jeans look really quite cool. Especially with turn-ups. Wouldn’t you agree? On Sunday, I wore my pretty new brogues for… Read more »

I wanted to show you the Massimo Dutti dress that I bought a few months ago and I had intended to take some photos before we went out for dinner. However I took too long in the bath and it so was dark by the time we went out. So, when we got back from the Chinese restaurant, I thought what a great idea it would be to take a few pics inside at home. So here’s me a few glasses… Read more »
