Yet again life has got in the way of the blog. When is it ever not busy??? These pictures were taken weeks ago and I thought I wouldn’t be able to use them but the top is actually still in stock at Next.  There’s no getting away from statement sleeves at the moment and I think they make an everyday jeans and trainers type outfit a lot more interesting.  There is, however, a downside in that they can get in the way if you’re doing a bit of housework or cooking. My solution? Put your feet up and deliveroo (is that a verb).

I also want to point out the necklace which I think looks really high end but is, in fact, from H&M.  And the belt was my Mother’s Day present to myself (thanks kids). Not cheap, but I’ve already worn it so much that cost-per-wear it’s a bargain.

What I’m wearing: Top: Next | Jeans (old): Zara | Trainers: Adidas | Necklace: H&M | Belt: Gucci

Marks and Spencer is having a bit of a moment and is definitely worth a browse on the high street or online. The beauty department is like a mini Space NK, stocking brands such as Nuxe and Glamglow, and the new collaboration with Lulu Kennedy for the Indigo collection has some really great, inexpensive pieces for summer. It was a tough decision because I wanted so much of it but I decided on the embroidered gypsy blouse and these really cute and colourful bracelets.

What I’m wearing: Blouse: Lulu Kennedy x M&S | Trousers: Zara | Boots: Next | Sunglasses: Gucci | Bag: Scarlet Rage Vintage | Bracelets: Lulu Kennedy x M&S

A family birthday earlier this month meant an opportunity to try out a (relatively) new local restaurant for Sunday lunch, @HeirloomN8, and the chance to dress up a bit instead of lolling on the sofa all day catching up with Brendan on Coach Trip (which is also good but it’s nice to have a change).  Sadly I wasn’t quick enough to get the leopard print ankle boots I wanted from Zara but I rediscovered these snakeskin boots bought in the Next sale a few years ago.  The navy top by Suzy D is a recent buy from another new local boutique @LazariClothing.

The Indian summer is finally over and I’m ready to get wrapped up in coats and boots and general cosy stuff. This jacket was a midsummer purchase that I’ve been so impatient to wear. I love the boxy, oversize look and the colour will brighten up the gloomy winter days to come. And what better than pearl accessories to complement the winter white.

What I’m wearing: Jacket: Marks and Spencer | Top: Asos | Leggings: H&M | Boots: Next | Sunglasses: Gucci | Earrings: Asos | Necklace: V&A Shop

The last time I wore dungarees was fifteen years ago when I was pregnant with baby number three. When I saw they were a new trend for 2014 I was worried that this was a look I would no longer be able to pull off but I gave it a go and this is the result.   Result!

What I’m wearing: Dungarees: Next | Vest: Gap | Scarf: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Boots: Next | Sunglasses & Watch: Gucci | Ring: Made for Topshop | Bangles: Cartier, Tiffany & Made for Topshop
