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

Military can sometimes be a little hard so I’ve softened the look with a few feminine touches of lace, tapestry and I’ve clinched in my waist with a wide velvet belt. Wide belts are top of my lust list at the moment. It’s probably one of my favourite ways to style up a look. Over jackets, cardigans or dresses. I’m sure it’s not the last time you’ll see me wearing a waist clincher like this one.

It was a pretty wet start to the day but it was brightened up with a lovely lunch and a handful of beautiful shows.
Prior to leaving the everyday juggling of family affairs occurred. That’s a military operation in itself. It can be a bit of a drama at times. But I guess it’s worth it when you get to enjoy a lovely day. Going to fashion week was always my goal when I first started my blog. I never stray to far away from my purpose. So I’m always happy to sit there and watch the front row antics and catwalk fashions. It’s a dream come true for me. A special day out that I really appreciate.

As a mother I often feel pulled in every direction especially when there’s so much to do and my family to consider. I sometimes feel I’m way to hard on myself. I love to achieve and do well in my work but I also love to be there everyday for my children. I sometimes need to be in four places at once. It’s a tough call at times and I often miss out on great opportunities so I can be there for my kids instead. That doesn’t make me sad but it can often feel frustrating. I guess I just want to be doing a good job all round for everyone. It’s a lot to take on at times. Women are doing so much these days. We fit into so many roles.I know men your do your thing too ( I praise you too). But the role of being a women has definitely changed and become a much bigger one. We are pretty super human in my opinion and I respect all that are doing their very best on a day to day basis. It’s not easy, so take five and be kind to yourself. Your doing a great job just being you.So on that note have a great week. Wear what you love and enjoy your life. xx Dawn

The little black lace dress.The perfect holiday dress. The perfect everything dress.Wear it anywhere with anything. Sandals, shoes and boots. Everything goes when it comes to a dress like this.Pack it away lightweight in an over night bag for a weekend or week away . Rock up to a beach party or a dinner date. Ha ha the possibilities are endless.. As you already know I love lace so how could I resist this cute dress for my up and coming holiday.
Not too long to wait. The kids are breaking up soon.. seems to be dragging on and on. Can’t wait to enjoy our summer together as a family. I love spending time with my kids away. Enjoying the sea and all the outdoor fun. It only seems yesterday thy were digging sand castles for hours on end. Now they cliff jump and snorkel for sea life. It’s so much fun being with them and enjoying things for the first time. It’s a great break from watching you tube and playing x box. Limited wifi !! Hooray I get my kids back. And they get to enjoy time together. Life is so busy. So many sports clubs and work to fit into everyday life that its sometimes nice to just sit and do nthing. No rushing around, no crazy busy mornings or evenings. Just lazy days spent together. I’m so excited I could burst. I’ve not been away for a couple of years so I’m going to really enjoy it. I’m sure I’ll post lots of lovely images up here and over on my instagram. Have a wonderful week guys xx Dawn

TROPHY JACKET

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)
