My search for the perfect crossbody bag| Chloe mini Faye bag|

I must admit I find a perfect cross body almost on a weekly basis (very fickle) However this week I did fall for a Chloe and I do have a longstanding love of Chloe bags (at least 10 years and thats long!)

There are so many colours to choose from but these are favourites.

My search for the perfect jeans and pants, not easy!

As I am only 5’2″ I do struggle to find jeans and trousers that I love and that look good (proportion is everything).  This week I have been on an extensive search for both and my research I think has been very successful!

I did have an extra incentive as I am off to London on Thursday and I was looking for a casual outfit that would see me through the day (I know I have things I could have worn!)

My first task was jeans, I wanted then straight cropped but with a frayed hem oh and they had to be black! I love the pair I found at River Island (they are available in petite yeah) so much so I have ordered them in blue as well.

River Island Bella frayed hem jeans £42 here

I had only just found these jeans when I saw these Isabel Marant pants in Harvey Nichols (I always love a bit of Isabel).

Isabel Marant Weaver cropped pants £235 here

Decisions decisions! both would work so well with my intended outfit which also consists of  a black sweatshirt (Whistles of course) which I bought in store (House of Fraser)

Whistles Parisien sweatshirt £79 here

As my day will be spent walking I will also wear another of my in store purchases (House of Fraser)

Michael Kors Mindy Heart Lace Up Trainers £150 here

So which outfit will I be wearing? that will be the big question for me until Thursday., although if I wear my parka it will be jeans (too much khaki otherwise)

My weekly dreaming update, it maybe cold outside but……

This week has very dreary weather wise but my dreams have been full of sunshine (Think the tan helps) I just want to wear all of the new season clothes now.

My Saturday outfit (for personal shopping) certainly made me feel very summery and it felt amazing. I do love a Whistles dress but the shoes are heaven!

There have been quite a few things that have caught my eye during the week (as always) but this top by Michael Kors is my favourite. I did try it yesterday and I am a little bit obsessed by it, it just hangs perfectly.

Micheal Kors Ruffled Polka Dot Georgette Top £135 here

This is the only image I can find and I would team it with jeans.

Still looking forward to warmer days these trousers by Whistles are just perfect for sunny days with a white tee and are definitely on wish list.

Sticking with Whistles this top from the Limited Edition is just gorgeous.

I appear to be having a week of finding gorgeous new tops and this one by Zara for me is near perfect. The colour for me is absolutely perfect I just need to try it. I would team with navy wide leg trousers and the perfect pair are below.

Max Mara Darling Wide Leg Culottes £205 here

These culottes are in store (house of Fraser and I can confirm that the fabric and the fit are just perfect.

If I didn’t already have quite a few pairs of sneakers then this pair from Zara would definitely be on my wish list. Just imagine how good they would look with the blue shirt and culottes above (heaven)

Zara platform sneakers £39.99 here

I am always on the look out for jeans as I struggle to find both the style and fit I want. Luckily Zara have just emailed to say these skinny flares are available, now team these with the Michael Kors polka top I featured above. (cosmos, stars aligning, whatever I know its a sign)

Zara skinny flares £29.99 here

Well I do believe that have shared enough of my dreams who knows how much will be a reality!!

 

 

 

 

Dresses! my pick of the new season day dresses…..

It all started yesterday I tried a Whistles dress that was too big for me but I knew the potential was huge. I did eventually find my size on line and I cannot wait to try it (the shoe possibilities are interesting).

This however piqued my interest and I decided that my work wardrobe needs a refresh and I love wearing dresses that I can team with ankle boots, sneakers or pretty shoes.

The dress that started the search

Whistles Scarf Print Dress was £169 now £80 here

This dress is much longer on me and I would style it differently! I am thinking my yellow Gucci loafers will look very cool.

My go to brands for dresses is always Whistles or Isabel Marant and this one is perfect.

Isabel Marant Etoile Vicky lace trimmed cotton dress £395 here

This dress by M.i.h is beautiful and I think that a tan is required but it is simply gorgeous.

M.i.h Jeans Kirby Dress £375 here

I actually sold this one yesterday to a personal shopping client and it looked beautiful.

Whistles Cynthia tie waist dress £139 here

A midi dress is always a good option for me and this one from Other Stories comes in two great colours.

Other Stories Heart Print Midi Dress £69 here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes to dresses the french brands always seem to get it right and this one by Sandro is beautiful.

Sandro Silk Dress £207 here

I do love MO&CO and this dress doesn’t disappoint.

My top 10 belt bags they are my new obsession…..

Belt bags or bum bags whatever you want to call them are having a new lease of life. I for one am totally obsessed although I will admit I am not sure how many times I would use one so I would be cautious with price point!!

I have searched the net this morning for my favourites and I have included all price points. You will have to admit that they are all very cute and would work over most outfits.

They may only be big enough for your phone, keys, cards and lip stick but what else do you need. I think for me it would be the hands free shopping (well until you have shopping bags) I really don’t enjoy taking a tote to town!

I will start with the one I am going to try myself!

Topshop Queenie Quilted Velvet Bag £22 here

Next up a Valentino dream

Valentino Free Rockstud Spike belt bag £885 here

A gorgeous yellow from Zara but it is also  available in black.

Another great price point and colour from Topshop.

I do love this beauty from Miu Miu but it would be a very expensive cot per wear.
