Not been actively posting too much lately. It’s been a difficult start to the year. It’s hard to get focused when so much is going on. Having lost two members of my family in the short space of time and for lots of other things to go the complete opposite of the way you planned. Is hard to shift the mood. I’m not one to go to deep and personal on my social but this is real life and this is what we all face day to day. It’s never easy. And when you loose people in your family circle it takes time to adjust and refocus.
Throwing myself into fashion has always been a good way of coping for me. This time I did need a little head space before taking pics and posting blogs. I’m really looking forward to Spring and the long light nights of summer. I tried a few summer pieces on that I just couldn’t get in the mood for purely because of the bad weather we are still having here in the UK. It’s hard to try pretty tops and dresses on when it’s still so cold and miserable outside. It is such a good time to pick up pretty things for the summer wardrobe but like I said it can be hard to get your head into that place after such a long time wrapped up for winter.
So on another note this is my outfit from the weekend. Putting a few classics together for a laid back look. Classic black and gold with a suede mack worked pretty well for me. I love the high waist jeans too. Sometimes they can make you look bigger around the hips and belly but who cares really hahah. It’s all about being happy and dressing how you want. At the end of the day there are no rules as long as your happy tHat’s all that matters.
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
Ditsy print and not much of anything else really. But it’s the start of the shorts season so it’s the start of things to come. I’m more then happy as it signals the start of summer. We’ve had such lovely days here recently I thought I’d put these shorts and top on for a litle summer outfit inspo. Hopefully the weather will be here to stay in the coming months and this kind of easy outfit becomes a regular fixture. Dawn xx
I was the lady in red today. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. What a perfect way to spend it too in this gorgeous red dress. My very first red dress that is. Not usually a colour I indulge in, but I’ve been in love with this for quite some time now.You might of seen me wearing the same dress in white a few weeks ago.So it’s quite obvious I have a definite dress crush. The weather has been so good lately. It makes life so much easier and nicer when the sun is shining. Everything becomes less hassle. From the school run to footie training, nothing seems to much trouble.
I wore the dress with gold, one of my favourite colours to add with a strong colour like red or black. It seems to compliment it nicely and I kept the sandals flat for my daytime look.
A girls girl kinda dress. White, lace and oh so sweet and pretty. How could you not love this.Well I certainly do. Its beautiful fabric is heavy and snug. Not an uncomfortable dress but something you can just slip on and wear with minimum effort. I would have on one every colour if I could. But I’m very happy to have just this one. Perfect summer time dress. Dressing it with heels, flats cardigans and sweaters it’s an ideal wardrobe filler. In-fact it’s centre piece for me. Special occasions or just a day out. It’s just lovely.Dawn xx
