Saturday Seven - 04/04/2020

Just because Friday Seven just didn't have the same ring to it!

Right now as I press publish on this post we would have been mid air on our way to Lanzarote. We were so looking forward to heading off for some sun - to a place that has become home from home. Obviously due to the current situation we are on a staycation instead. A few weeks back I did mention I'd be doing a holiday packing blog........which is essentially what this blog is I guess! I made a list a couple of months ago......edited it a couple of times but these are the dresses I would have been sharing with you over the coming week had we been going. These photos are all from holidays past.

No.1 Kicking off with the most liked photo from our holiday in Lanzarote last year.......in fact whenever this dress features it gets a lot of love. The dress is Oysho and I actually bought during the holiday. I was looking forward to wearing it again :0(

Friday Five - 27/03/2020

Sorry I'm a bit late with the blog this week. It's been a funny old week hasn't it?! The only excuse I have is that I've been binge - watching a Swedish thriller called Before We Die and was gripped by the season one finale last night - hence the delay!

This week it's quite simply five things I'm grateful for.

No.1
My wardrobe 



Guaranteed to bring me joy. Clothes are definitely a mood-enhancer for me. However now more than ever I don't want to own more than I need. I've made the decision not to buy any clothes for the foreseeable future. It just doesn't feel right to be acquiring anything that's non - essential. My hope is that whilst we are in this situation that I can break the habit of buying things for the sake of it. The time I'm getting to spend at home is a luxury.......I can now play around with my wardrobe to my hearts content and I intend to make the most of it!

I'll start as I usually do with a style steal.

Friday Five - 06/03/20

So this is my fifth Friday Five! Woo hoo! I think I'm establishing a new habit :0)

No.1
Style Steal

Right off the bat - apologies. This weeks outfit is a little dull. There is spring inspiration everywhere and it's been hard to find ways in which to shop my wardrobe with the allure of gorgeous newness everywhere. Here goes though.....I'm copying the incredibly cool Anime Bing again.

My outfit details
H&M sweater, past season
J Crew V-Neck tee (under sweater), past season
New Look trousers, past season
Golden Goose Trainers
Balenciaga bag, ancient

Friday Five - 28/2/20

It's a short and sweet Friday Five this week. I've been scouring my Pinterest boards for a bit of inspiration for my spring capsule wardrobe.

I've thrown in a little bonus -a style style of course! Copying an outfit from another of my style heroines - Anine Bing.

H&M shirt A/W 2019
New Look trousers A/W 2019 
Preloved French Sole two tone ballet flats

Friday Five - 21/2/2020

Hitting the ground running this week!

No.1 Style steal! 

I'll start by sticking to the usual formula.....this week it's the turn of Emma Hill's. This was an easy one to replicate from my winter capsule. I suspect a lot of us could replicate this look with similar items in our wardrobes

My outfit details
Fahri coat via TK Maxx (Christmas present 2019)
& Other Stories jumper (A/W 2019)
New Look coated skinny jeans (A/W 2018 - they still stock similar)

& Other Stories bag (A/W 2019)

Friday Five! 14/2/2020

Here's my little weekly round up - starting with a style steal.

No.1 #sorrynotsorry I make no apologies that Michelle Williams is my muse again. Love the way she keeps things simple. Trying to get in the habit of wearing clothes suitable for my real life - not my fantasy life. You really have gotta love Pinterest......it's so good for reminding me what I already have. This Topshop jacket has been a wardrobe staple every season - they bring out a version every year which says it all......it's a classic!

My outfit
Topshop jacket, past season (similar here)
New Look coated skinnies, past season (similar here)
New Look hi tops, past season (nearest I could find here)
Snood - currently has 20% off

Just for fun!

So these were my most liked photos on Instagram during 2019. I actually think they are a good reflection of my style. I am more 'liked' in a dress though it would seem!
