Tell me what can you want now you've got it all.

Happy Monday everyone!

Had a mega busy weekend so havent had any time to update. Had Jasmines 4th birthday party on Saturday, it was loud, chaotic and utterly fantastic! I think everyone had a great time and since we did things differently from everyone elses parties, (we had a disco they normally have a bouncy castle- but bouncy castles terrify me- broken bones and head bangs- eek!!) we have raised the benchmark for kiddies parties! lol The only problem is how to top it next year?

So a quick post with todays and yesterdays outfit (didnt get the chance to take pics of Saturdasy but I am assured my mother in law took lots of pics so will update that outfit wehn she emails them over to me).

Yesterday I had to accompany my other half to a windy freezing car lot to lok at this car he just had to see..Meh modern cars I can take them or leave them, we both love old cars though and I will happily spend all day lusting over old Triumphs and Morris Minors and dream of the day we can afford a house with a garage again so we can get one!

Anyway my outfit had to be functional so I wore:

Blue bootcut jeans- M and S via ebay
black v neck short sleeve tshirt- Primark

Chocolate brown velvet jacket (yes I got one after hunting for one for what would seem forever my mother in law dropped of a big bag of clothes to ebay and this was in it...decided it was much better on my back than a few pound in my pocket and snaffled it up!)

Teamed with tiger print scarf and my oversized sequin bag (really need to change my bag at some point)

And my leopard print pumps with black socks as it was cold!

todays outfit is something I threw together this morning as I didnt have a lot of time to mess around. Im wearing today:

Black silky feel skirt- Love Label via ebay (this is a tad see through but is ok teamed with tights and a coat but I will have to get some kind of slip to wear this in the summer)

Black v neck jumper- Primark
Long turquiose necklace- have no idea so old.
silver hoop earrings

Grey herringbone pattern tights- so old I cant remember where I got these but I think they are either Matalan or Primark.
Black patent pointed toe flat shoes- again years old bought from La Redoute- they are fab and have lasted years of wear.

I also had a mooch through the 2 boxes of shoes/ boots I have on top of my wardrobe that are not really suitable for eveyday wear to see if there was anything I could use now. I dug out my brown wedges I bought last year.

They are Clarks via ebay. I wondering if I could get away with wearing them now as Ive seen others wearing wedges...How would you wear them to make them suitable for this British Spring?

Have a good one everyone :)


  1. I think you could easily start wearing the wedges now - try them with tights underneath (maybe some red ones to pick up the detailing on them?). People seem to be doing the whole socks and wedges look but I think tights might be an esaier way in.

    That sequinned bag is gorgeous - I can totally see why you want to use it all the time.

  2. Yoy look sooooo pretty in that top photo, love the bling and velvet combo.
    Those wedges are spectacular. I agree with Alex about the tights. Can't wait to see you wearing them.

  3. A four year olds disco - sounds like great fun!

    Love the second outfit - I think it's the grey tights that swung it for me - I'm a big fan of grey :)

  4. I'm not a huge fan of long socks and wedges but tights definitely would look good.
    I love the 2nd outfit too, the skirt length is just right - very pretty.

  5. Thanks for the comments ladies :) I must admit Im not a fan of socks and sandals (cue visions of old men in white socks and jesus sandals lol) will def try with tights though!
