Playing it Down

On a Friday I would usually write what I’ve been calling my ‘weekly confession’, but as the blog has evolved I have started sharing my purchases on the blog shop that day – hopefully making it much easier for you to shop my favourites at any time rather than that particular week. But this does leave me with a bit of a gaping hole in my blogging schedule…

So this Friday I thought I would take a look back at the week, and see what you’ve liked the most… the Zara leopard skirt.

The Shopping Edit: Summer Days

Here in London we have finally seen Summer arrive and what a relief. I can wear my favourite cut-offs without feeling like a loon. And this week I received a very exciting package from Dune London with these beautiful tan suede loafers inside. Totally in love with them,  soft, classic, and leg-extending. They’re from the new AW16 collection which is trickling into stores and online at the moment. These are the perfect Summer purchase, they’ll see you through the last of the Summer weather and will look great with jeans for Autumn and Winter.

The Shopping Edit: SALE SALE SALE

It does seem rather trivial writing a shopping post on such a historical day – but my little website has always been my outlet, my place to come and write about things that make me happy… fun lighthearted topics, my life edited for you to see.

So… back to serious things… what I bought this week. Surely shopping is helping the economy anyway right?!

The Friday Edit: Detoxing

Happy Friday!

So one week after my ‘detox post’ and I am pleased to say I am doing pretty well. I have had a major clear-out and sent bags and bags off to the charity shops. Hoping that ticks my ‘doing good’ box for the week. As for shopping… I haven’t bought a thing! Atleast not for myself. I have bought a tonne for the garden getting it Summer ready and then lots of little odds and ends for Mini V’s busy bag on the flight next weekend.

Not much fun for a Friday shopping post!

So… if I wasn’t detoxing… here is what I would have bought, hopefully I can live vicariously through you (torture)

The Friday Edit: A Woman’s Prerogative

Ok so I am very aware that after yesterdays wardrobe detox post I am now flaunting the opposite! Surely it is a woman’s prerogative to change her mind or at least take her time in rolling out the changes to her shopping habits. And besides, this week’s shopping has been more about essentials than extras… apart from the shoes which I just fell in love with, and maybe the beautiful leather jacket. I think the wardrobe detox starts from May. I am determined to make it work and you can track my progress with these Friday updates.

As for this the last week of April 2016… here goes…

The Friday Edit: Dressing for the Weather

Another Friday and another fuzzy head… (totally blame my husband for this one, the sambuca shots after our civilised meal were not needed). Luckily my daughter is with her grandparents and I can take it easy… until this evening.

So this week has been all over the place weather wise, and a nightmare to dress for. Sunshine and heat quickly turns into rain and chills… boots vs pumps, coat vs jacket, carry around a brolly or risk a lions mane?! So this week I wanted to add a couple of pieces to make the transition a little easier. A lightweight jacket, a hat and a spring scarf.

The Shopping Edit: Friday Confessional

Happy Friday ladies!

Another week another confession…

So this week mini V has had her Summer wardrobe updated in preparation for our little family holiday next month. The Zara Artisan collection, and H&M came up trumps, such beautiful designs at great prices. Then a quick trip to Sainsburys yesterday saw her bag a few more Summer accessories from TU, including a super cute wide-brim straw hat she insisted on wearing the entire supermarket trip.

As for me, I kept it basic and Summer-ready…

The Shopping Edit: Love Always

Happy Friday ladies… what a difference a four day week makes, and what a difference this (intermittent) sunshine makes. So time for my weekly confession and this Friday it includes some new SS16 pieces and some sale buys – so be quick if you want to nab them before they sell out. I have also included an eBay purchase here which took a little bit of time to track down due to some of the crazy prices people sell on highstreet pieces for!

So here goes…
