I do love collecting these investment accessories. Belts have to be my major weak point when it comes to this. This Gucci belt caught my eye several weeks ago and it was love at first sight. The beautiful bee design is so unusual and pretty. I’m thinking it’ll be lovely in the summer over dresses and jackets. It’s one of those pieces I’ll keep and treasure. It’s also lovely to pass down to my little girl. She loves all the pretty things I’ve collected. Lots are put away for her to enjoy. Sunday’s are by far one of my favourite days for chilling out and enjoying my family. We love to pop around having coffee or cooking Sunday lunch. We love being together. I look forward to the weekends and being with everyone. I’m a little old fashioned like that. My family are my everything and I love sitting chatting with everyone. I tend to change a few times on a Sunday. It’s sometimes a coffee look, followed by my don’t care if i ruin it cooking look, followed by my lazy Sunday sofa look. The latter two are usually the same – sweater and jog pants !! If I’m heading out for lunch then it’s never anything to over the top. I’m more of a comfy dresser if I’m honest. My little girl is the same. She likes to change into leggings and Tee after being out. Do you have a particular outfit routine on the weekends..?
The what shall I wear today dilemma..? problem solved. Black. Always the fail safe option no matter what situation. Day to day or special occasion. The head-to-toe all black look is probably the safest bet. When in doubt go with this classic all black look. Maybe throw on a fancy pair of shoes something embellished or a just a simple pop of colour, a classic handbag and the daily dilemma of what to wear is just about sorted. Classic pieces to keep safe in the wardrobe are always a good place to start if your wondering what to buy? I’m on the look out for a classic pair of black trousers. Something I can pull on with ease and looks great with just about anything . Finding the right shape can be the hardest part. You might go through twenty pairs before you hit the jackpot but I guess thats sometimes the fun of a little shopping trip or an online shopping indulgence. Dawn xx
Dorothy Perkins have done a great study to see which City wears what dress. Cardiff, thats my City. Seem to like the body con dress. I don’t think I was completely surprised, as I know how popular it is here. I rarely wear them myself but I have to say now that I’ve tried this one by Dorothy Perkins I really like them. I think I’ve been converted. I love the colour and the fit. A comfortable dress for both day and night. I’m really happy to have tried this type of dress. I’m now on the hunt for more. So watch this space ….

It’s monday, it’s the easter holidays and I’m already exhausted. A wait at the barbers with two little men who know exactly how they want their hair is very amusing. The length at the back has to be this, and the sides that, and the top long and the parten cut in..oh and the wax. The list goes on. I love sitting there listening to them. Exactly that two little men growing beautifully. I sit there with a whole lot of pride.
As I’m running around all day being bossed about. I thought it best to wear my trainers. These new balance are so comfy. The ideal run around that still look good with jeans and a leather jacket. Hope your having a great start to the week. I’m hoping I’ll have some hair left in the next fortnight, but if I haven’t you’ll know why. Ha ha love Dawn xx
I love adding textures and details to an outfit in the simplicity of either leather, suede or fringing. Jackets and boots with a little detail are always great to have in the wardrobe. I’ve doubled up on fringing with my jacket and my bag today. I like the two colours together with the same fringe detail. An everyday jeans and vest outfit made a little more exciting with a few cool pieces. Suedeis such a great feature to bring into an outfit. It can be done in a subtle way or full out. Creating outfits can be lots of fun with some many lovely pieces to play around with. Anything from beach holidays to city breaks these kind ofjackets, bags and boots can be used in lots of different ways. Enjoy the weekend xx Dawn
