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.

One day back in personal shopping and my must have list is growing………………..

The good thing about personal shopping is I get to see all of the clothes in store all of the time! (hmm can be a bit of a problem)

Lunchtime treats Zara flowing trousers in four colours …………….

Yesterday I bought two pairs of Zara flowing trousers without trying them on and  hoping that they would be good enough to build some work outfits (personal shopping). I bought navy and black as I couldn’t decide, I do love navy but black can be easier! They are £9.99 a pair and are available in four colours MUST HAVES. What made it better it is I had the cash in my purse which other wise have been my lunch money for the week.

I was so surprised when I tried them at home as they are great and I have numerous tops and shoes to team them with.

Outfit of the day Jumpsuit & Sneakers| Cold Shoulder Jumpsuits|

I really need an outfit that I can use for an evening out but I can wear everyday for work and I think I have the perfect solution. This black jumpsuit from Whistles will work perfectly in so many ways. I can wear my platforms for the evening and sneakers to run around in all day.

I also need excuse to wear my beautiful Prada wedges which I have had for quite awhile now but hardly ever wear.

Outfit of the day culottes and sneakers| Flatform lace up sneakers|

I am always looking for clothes that look cool but comfortable for work. As a stylist I like to look good but as I walk miles around the store all day I need shoes that don’t torture me.

The culottes are a great basic to work with so I have included alternative tops and shoes. Burgundy is currently my favourite colour especially the Whistles Anasis top (see below). The Miu Miu espadrilles would be amazing for work as they would work well with my wardrobe but the Carvela pumps are a more practical alternative (especially price wise)
