Catwalk to closet is here!! It happened at Burberry and Topshop unique at London fashion week. Within 24 hours of it being seen on the runways they were on the rails. Obtainable instantly with a click of a button. I really like the concept and I guess it’s a way of getting the buyer to buy the item when they see it rather then it going from their minds and the brands trying to capture your interest again several months later. There’s no time to wait and fashion is moving fast. The competition is mounting and to be able to get people to buy it the moment they see and lust it is the key !!

I fell in love with this floral blouse. The colours and vintage feel captured me and the novelty of being able to wear something that literally was just on the runway took hold and I pressed the buy button. Glad I did as its such a pretty piece and one I can just wear with jeans or shorts.

It’s always nice to have a blouse at hand. It’s a wardrobe staple and one you can reuse. Dress them up or down they are a piece in themselves. My kind of dressing if I’m honest. Something that looks nice but with minimum effort.

Happy Sunday xx Dawn

Intimates














Easily mistaken for something for the bedroom this lace slip is actually a dress I picked up just over a year ago. Excessively short- like everything I own (so I was told today.. Ha ha) Intimate dressing- not for bedtime or for under clothing but for wearing out on glamorous affairs. Sweet and decadent daytime to evening slinky numbers are a must this year. A pretty transitional piece that can be worn for summer evenings or for real trend setting, worn under heavy coats for winter nights out partying. I wasn’t brave enough to wear this piece alone until recently but the desire far out-weighed the fear. Doubled up with cream on cream and added nude accessories for a light airy feel.

Denim Skirt













Back home and missing the sunshine already.Brightened my day by wearing rthis red T-shirt. My denim skirt is from several years back but still a great piece. I like mixing denim with red and creams but I guess that’s the beauty of denim it goes with everything. Just hope it warms up so dressing can be like this everyday rather then just for a quick lunch meeting.

I was wearing
Roberto Cavalli Skirt (several years old)
River Island T

Cocoon coat







I was in London yesterday for a few meetings but mostly for the launch of sweaty betty’s #thefitcrowd. I’ve been lucky enough to be chosen along with a number of other amazing bloggers to work with sweaty betty and the fit crowd. A strong initiative to empower woman through fitness. What a fab invite and a great chance to check out the new collection, fill my basket with a choice of fitness attire and take part in a barrecore class-an amazing workout based on controlled movements that work isolated muscle groups rather then the hard heart pounding stuff. It Includes elegant ballet movements which I loved. A complete contrast to the stomping and jumping classes I used to do – a really femenine and rewarding workout!

Getting fit again has crossed my mind several times over the past few years but doing something about it hasn’t materialised.Purely through injury, not having the time and not wanting to push my body again. I think I’ve enjoyed the fact I haven’t had to train. So much so I forgot it’s actually about being strong and maintaining a healthy body rather then racing around a track as fast as you can. I really need to change my way of thinking and start to enjoy getting fit.Think of it as fun rather then pain- easier said then done when your head is spinning and all you want to do is throw up… it’s going be a battle for sure. Seriously the only excersise I’ve done has been chasing after 3 kids and running from shop to shop… watch this space!! So back to fashion here’s the outfit I wore for the evening I dressed in soft cream and whites and mostly in love with this over sized soft cocoon coat by topshop unique.

I was wearing
Acne Jumper
Topshop Unique coat
Dolce and gabbana Booties
Mulberry bag
Celine TV screen sunglasses
