I was wearing every piece  WallisShirt, Jacket, Pants

Scarf, shoes & handbag also Wallis.

It feels like spring is starting to arrive. It’s been such a long wet winter. I just love it when the nights start getting lighter and the days become brighter. I can’t wait to wear all the gorgeous summer clothes. It definitely feels like life is starting to open out again. Which also means it’s the season for special events- weddings, polo days, regattas and pretty much any other special occasion.

In fact who needs an excuse to dress up. I’ve gone for this classic cream suit. I love the cropped length. Especially good to show off the summer shoes. I thought it was pretty much the perfect piece for most occasions.
I can also mix and match every piece into my everyday wardrobe. Jacket with the jeans, pants with a sweater and so on…. It’s even great for a lunch out on a summers day.

I love preparing my summer wardrobe. Spring cleaning the winter clothes from my wardrobe and bringing in all the lovely soft colours, florals, ruffles and floaty dresses.
Wallis have just launched their occasion hub which has just about everything you need to prepare for the summer invites. There are so many styles I want to embrace this year. As I mentioned in my previous posts. I really feel this summer is going to be one to enjoy dressing up. Geek, romantic,stripes, metallics, florals everything is everything. I think you can tell I’m rather excited for summer. It’s definitely my favourite time of year to enjoy clothes, shoes and days out. Check out the “>hub here for a few more inspirations. xx Dawn

I was Wearing

Pants, Sandro Paris (look for the perfume style)
Blouse, H&M
Corsage Broach, here & here
Shoes, Prada (vintage)

I love the ruffle detailing this year and pretty much everything else. Corsages, collars, scarfs and these cropped bell bottomed pants.
I’ve introduced a little vintage with my Prada heels which I’ve treasured. I always say about looking after pieces so they can be worn time and time again.
Did you see the trends hitting the latest catwalk shows. So inspiring. I loved the Gucci collection. It sparked a real desire to change the way I dress.Introduce colours and patterns and little extras like the collar bows and corsages.I think this Summers fashions are going to be amazing.

I’m really hoping the high street mimick what we’ve seen on the catwalks for spring summer 16. It’s refreshing to see a change in style. Moving towards new influences. I love the delicate feminine tones and eccentric styling.Spring summer looked amazing but the latest AW moved on again, so it’s a really exciting year for dressing up, accessorising and individual styling.

Lots more looks over on my instgram recently and coming here in the next week. I wore this outfit for a lunch to celebrate International Women’s day. Such a great chance to talk about how amazing we are of course and about all the latest news affecting women in the workplace and the best options for us health wise. Check out this company, they are doing amazing things for woman to have a choice for that time of month. When using products that can be harmful these guys are offering a great safe alternative. I’m always keen to promote things that are good for women. Having a choice is fundamental when it comes to our bodies and our health. XX Have a great week Dawn

Handbag, Lanvin (high street version here)

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

Watch out springs here and I’ve decided to bare some skin. Hooray at last. Obviously I did a bit of sunless tanning with one of my favourite beauty products.I find it hard not to tan my legs when I’m wearing short skirts. It helps even out the skin and hide winter blemishes, until the sun helps out in a natural way. I’m not a huge sun tanner and I rely a lot on the fake stuff. Much healthier. After my sister had skin cancer at just 30 it became incredibly real. And frightening. And I’m fully aware of the dangers. I’m always topping up the children when we are away. It’s hard work at times dragging them out of the pool or sea but it’s really important we protect ourselves. I’m trying to be good and use a SPF 50 on my face. I often forget. With the weather being so cold/cloudy you think your safe but even in the winter our skin needs protecting.

Any way back to the day and what I was wearing. Been meaning to get this sweater on the blog but hadn’t had the chance. I found this skirt, had a little dressing up session as you do…trying things on and bingo!! The perfect paring. Threw a long coat over just to keep warm, not wanting to get too carried away just yet.
I hope your all ok. Please leave me a comment and let me know if you’ve found any nice outfit combo’s recently.. maybe leave a link to your favourite look. XX Dawn
