So much to tell you about today- I’ll start with the outfit. Been hanging out in silky shorts and knit. Not givin up on wearing them just yet. Mild autumn days are too hard to let go without indulging in a little leg show. How could I leave these on the rail ? The lace trim and silky floral design was far too appealing for me. Hard to pass up the chance to indulge in such a pretty pair of shorts.
I’m off to London tomorrow for the cosmo blog awards. I’m up for Best established Fashion Blog. I’m so excited. Any excuse to get dressed up and party. Not that I know what I’m wearing just yet. It’s been so busy with the children, the boutique and the blog that shopping for outfits is proving difficult. I spend far too long online shopping.But I do love seeing all the new season collections arriving. I’m a complete fashion addict.

PS-I’ve a great twitter giveaway happening at the moment. Tweet me @dressmeperfect1 & @McArthurGlenUK a picture of your favourite denim outfit/piece with the hashtag #ArtOfDenim. The competition is open to both men and woman. I will be picking my favourite denim outfit after the closing date.The winner will receive a £50 voucher to spend at McArthurglen. The competition runs from NOW until sunday the 20th Oct 23.59pm. Get tweeting

How good is this weather? Getting to chill out in a few of my favourite summer outfits leaves me smiling from ear to ear. And another reason for smiling. Cosmo mag announcing the shortlist for this years blog awards and seeing my name on it. I’ve been nominated for ‘Best established fashion blog’. I actually felt a wee bit dizzy when I saw my name on the list. I actually didn’t see my name first time I looked. So nearly fell back on my chair when I realised I was on it. I’m so happy to be recognised and so glad you’ve taken the time to vote for me.
So now all there’s to do is try and win it. And again I need your votes. I’m adding the link here and below for you to cast your votes. I’m on the third page (first time I’ve made pg 3) select my blog name in the ‘best established fashion blog’ category and please continue to the end where you MUST press submit for your entry to register. Thank you all so very much.

And now my outfit. Today I’m wearing this gorgeous pyjama style playsuit. I’ve loved the look for the last year but I’ve never actually invested in piece of this style.This was a great find, not only love the shape and colour but the price tag too. Thou it looks and feels luxurious I’ve added my high heels to keep the masculine look more delicate.And the caramel and burgundy bag pick up the tones from the playsuit. An easy to wear day to evening outfit. Hope your getting a chance to enjoy the sunshine. Dawn xxx

Cosmo blog awards

My wednesday night was spent in London at the cosmopolitan blog awards, where I had been shortlisted to win best new fashion blog…. Read on

There were cocktails and cupcakes at the 24 club to celebrate everyone’s achievement. Cosmo mag editors, stylistpick and followers votes decided on the shortlist so I was extremely happy to be included in the top 9 best new UK fashion blogs, I later found out 20,000 blogs had been nominated in my category, and there were 160,000 across the whole competition. Stylistpick, the sponsors were there with their latest shoe collection. My favourite being the cobalt blue snake print heel…striking!!

One of my favourite looks at the moment, jersey pants and heels. Really like the chain detail on the jumper, the weight of the chain made it fall off my shoulder which I love. I was in london yesterday to attend the cosmo blog awards but also had appointments in the day to view a few collections, i’ll post them up soon…

My pants are Stefanel, Cynthia Steffe jumper and Christian Louboutin shoes.



Metallic cardigan and dolce lace was perfect for today.. had a meeting and then taking some time to catch up with friends. Love being able to throw a big cardigan over my outfit especially when it’s such a brilliant colour.  I like to mix metallic with lace and sequins, i enjoy playing with the textures and colours to make an interesting look…
