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..?

So .. how was your Christmas? Hope you all had a wonderful day. I can’t believe it’s been already and it’s now boxing day. I do love the days after Christmas. Everyone is chilled out and there’s still lots of lovely food around and a happy atmosphere. I also love looking forward to the New Year. And the fact we will soon be in coming into Spring. I’ve really enjoyed winter this year. Helped by the beautiful clothing I’m sure. Christmas was fun and wearing lovely dresses and everything sparkly is always a treat. I do love the New Year. The best thing about it for me are all the new arrivals landing for the coming season. The sales are great but there’s nothing nicer then seeing all the pretty Spring/Summer clothing arriving. I’ve managed to get my hands on this gorgeous lace dress from the new season collection at Wallis. It’s the perfect dress to see me into the new year. I’ll be partying in it new Years eve and then adding it as my staple dress for the coming months. I’ve teamed it here with sandals ready to party but I love it with tights and boots too. I think I’ll layer it with a blouse as well. All the possibilities from one dress. I’ve always been a huge fan of lace as you probably already know. It’s one of my favourite trends. I pretty much team lace with anything. It’s a definite wardrobe essential for me.
Have you made any new years resolutions yet..? I usually go with the keeping fit one and the eating healthier one. But I’m little naughty at sticky to them.I find these ones the hardest to stick to. Maybe I should go with the buy more dresses option. I’ll do very well at that!!
Statement dressing. Special pieces that last forever. I’m doing it this year with this gorgeous trophy jacket. Out and about in London so thought I’d team it up with a pair of suede heels and torn up jeans.
These kind of jackets are great for day-to-night dressing. Smart or casual as I’ve done here. It’s a great staple piece. It’s a great time to be investing in this type of thing. Sales and massive reductions mean you can get your hands on some pretty amazing stuff but for a snippet of the price. I love the sales. And there are plenty of them this year. I find it easier online to shop them. I went in store in London yesterday and it was totally exhausting and I couldn’t find what I was looking for. There are pro’s and cons to both. The downside to online is not being able to try the things on before you buy… the dreaded waiting for the refund but it’s calm and relaxing and fun browsing the fashion pages. Then there’s the joy of trying things on there and then but with the drama of picking through the rails. I’ve had the best success this year online. Have you found anything nice yet? I’d definitely go for a trophy jacket,shoes or a handbag as a rule especially when I’ve been saving for something. Happy shopping guys. (I’ve listed a few of my favourite sales belw)
