Like I’ve said before, style-wise 2017 so far has been all about making a BIG statement. Big sleeves, big frills and lots of lace. The bigger the better. As a Mum of two myself there’s only so far I can take this trend without feeling like I’ve gone a bit ‘over-the-top’. My wardrobe needs to be fairly practical and therefore I…

Is anyone else bored of the sweater & jeans combo yet? Oh my. I mean, I love a good jumper as much as the next person, but I’m a bit over it and am in desperate need to wear something else right now. Come on spring – show your face! We need, need, need to ditch the heavy coats and…

Bear with me now. I haven’t gone mad. I am in fact talking about a pair of smarter shoes that you can wear during the daytime! For a stylish and more sophisticated look than flats or pumps.

Back in August 2016 I set myself a little challenge with regards to fashion. I made a vlog basically stating that I wanted to break out of my comfort zone of ‘boring’ clothes, get more stylish, and seek out key trends…at the same time as still needing to dress practically in my role as busy Mum of two. Not such an easy…

I’ve said in a few previous posts now that I have wanted to expand the range of brands that I shop in. Getting stuck in a ‘brand rut’ is a real thing…especially if the clothes in the stores that you regularly shop in fit you well/are local to you/are in your price range. These things really matter. Non of us like change…

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock lately (although that IS quite possible in early January with all this cold weather!) then you will be fully aware that the BIG sleeve is all over our high street. The bigger, the better. I was, myself, a little wary of this new 2017 trend – mainly because of potentially dipping them into the twins tomato pasta when preparing their dinner,…
