My Petite Picks For Summer

So it turns out I don’t have a whole lot in my wardrobe for summer. I think this is because we’ve had such rubbish summers over the last couple of years and we’ve not been on holiday anywhere hot during those summers either. I’m left scrambling the back of my wardrobe for whatever I can find that looks a bit summery! This has of course led me to do a little browsing of certain online…

My simple style

When you think of someone working from home I bet you think of them working in their pajamas. I know I did! However when you’re a parent and you’ve got to be up and out for the school run you have to be ready to face the world first thing. Not to mention the fact that I don’t think my daughter’s would ever speak to me again if I rocked up at the school gate…

A wardrobe update with LOTD

With summer well and truly behind us and those cold months fast creeping in it’s time to put away our summer clothes and dig out the cosy knits and ankle boots. If you’re anything like me you’ll mark this change in season declaring that you have absolutely nothing to wear and wonder what on earth you wore this time last year! I don’t like to buy lots of clothes or hoard loads that I rarely…

I’m a Joanie Gal

I love finding brands and stores that just get you. Know what I mean? When you find somewhere that sells clothes you can see yourself in and it’s super hard not to just add the whole lot into your basket, whether virtual or physical. Joanie Clothing is one of those stores for me. They are inspired by vintage clothing and all their pieces have a retro vibe to them without looking like you’re just dressing…

Summer holiday essentials wish list

We’re off to Turkey for a wedding at the end of the month and I’m woefully under prepared! Up until today I was still scrambling round for ‘the’ bikini, this is in part due to the fact that we’ve not had a beach holiday in years. I’ve ordered this one from Boden, and even managed to get a good discount as the top is in the clearance section.   Though it is safe to say…

The perfect summer cover up with White Stuff

When it comes to my summer wardrobe my main focus is versatility. With the weather in the UK going from hot sun to dreary rain and back again we need to be prepared for anything. I don’t know about you but I can’t afford to spend money on loads of clothes only to never get to wear them because of the change in weather. Anything I buy in the summer months needs to earn its…

Keeping warm on the school run

I’m a bit of a coat and jacket addict and I’m always on the look out for the ‘perfect’ school run coat. It needs to be warm, waterproof and have a decent hood. I’ve got coats that are warm but no hood and waterproof but not warm, I think you get the idea. I thought I’d cracked it last year when I picked up a coat with a removable fur trim to the hood. I…
