wardrobe refreshers!

This week there hasn't been much opportunity to hit the High Street....or shop online as for the first time in eleven years I have worked Monday - Friday 9 to 5! It wasn't half as bad as I expected and actually made me super productive both at work and at home! If you caught any of my Instagram Stories this week you will have seen me in packing mode for my holiday next week......organised or what?! However, I digress. I did catch up with my mum for our usual weekly scout about the shops on Saturday. The trip was more about home furnishings as mum is looking for curtain fabric....however she did drag me into New Look to look at shoes!! Like I haven't done enough damage in there lately! Needless to say I didn't come away empty handed, though my mum did! Just typical! Anyway....these put a smile on my face. Perfect for the duller summer days when sandals just aren't going to cut it and they will certainly revive a few of my favourite looks as you will no doubt see in the coming days!

one holiday box ~ fit to burst!

I'm eating my words here and taking back what I said on my last blog post :-/ Pointing my finger at New Look....and a new drop of dresses! I've also fallen foul of a couple of those Insta-famous numbers thanks to some of my favourite style inspirations of the moment! This first gem is all my own handy-work though! If there are two colours I can't get enough of it's blue and red....both featured here...I think you'll understand why I've succumbed!

holiday box additions!

Counting down the weeks now until our Summer holiday! We are going back to Yelloh Village in Les Tournels near St Tropez as we loved it so much last year. It's a very chilled glamping-style holiday but with St Tropez not that far away there are a few opportunities to dress up. I'm going to be taking all of the dresses I bought on my last holiday when I stocked up in Mango and Zara...there have been a couple more dress additions to the wardrobe this week but I'll come onto that in a minute. I thought these would instantly update the current dress collection....and add a touch of glam!

that summer essential - the white dress!

Nothing screams Summer more than a white dress. The perfect accessory is a bit of a tan. I have 5 at the last count....I can't get enough of them! They are not just for holidays either.....I wore mine for date night last Friday.

skirting around!

I feeling that Rouje vibe again. I tend to steer clear of skirts as I find them really hard to style.....much easier to bung on a dress and be done with it. However I'm at that point in the season where I'm looking for trouble...I've filled my boots with every item of clothing imaginable (you can see what I've purchased so far here). So I'm now craving some different. I'm looking for something that's a bit more flirty in style.....with a whiff of Les Style Francaise shall we say! I plan to wear either with a cami or t-shirt, my espadrilles or flat sandals and accessorised with an obligatory basket and Raybans! Here's a bit of skirt inspiration.....all courtesy of Pinterest.
