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)

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.

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.

MO&CO floral silk georgette dress was £210 now £63 here

I will finish with a dress that I have just fallen for and it comes in three different colour ways.

These two are available on www.mytheresa.com

My wait is finally over Isabel Marant has my new season boots!

Earlier today I was complaining that there were no new season Isabel Marant boots that I liked and tonight as if by magic here they are.

I already have boots in this style I love the Chelsea boot fit around my ankle (do not like baggy ankle boots) and the heel height is perfect.

A few weeks ago I was toying with white ankle boots for spring/summer what more could ask for.

Isabel Marant Danay Boots £490 here

 

Looking forward too new season Isabel Marant……

It may only be November but I am so excited to se these boots will be available at the end of January.

Those of you who know me will be aware that I love the Danae boots well imagine my delight when I spotted these newbies coming next year.

Take one Isabel Marant dress, slides and two pairs of boots…….

I do love an Isabel Marant dress I can always do so much with them just by changing the shoes. This dress has had me thinking (a lot for a long time) about different shoes in different locations, I am thinking Lima Dreaming and winter in Manchester.

These would be my favourite combinations:

Isabel Marant Lyon cotton voile mini dress £335 here

For work (personal shopping) pretty and comfortable.

Zara over the knee boots £59.99 here

Lima Dreaming in the sunshine with a cool pair of slides.

Isabel Marant Hellea Metallic Slides £295 here

I always need a cool pair of ankle boots (this would involve fake tan and a warm coat). In reality either my suede or snake effect Isabel Marant Danae boots would work perfectly but check this python pair I spotted today!

Isabel Marant Danae printed python boots £655 here 

 

 

 

My never ending love for Isabel Marant Danae boots…

The only ankle boots that I can run around store in all day everyday, and they look just as good with jeans as they do dresses.

I just found this black suede pair on Mytherea in the sale which is always good but fashion maths says that they probably cost pennies per wear.

Isabel Marant Danae boots in black suede £371 here (30% off)

 

 

Isabel Marant: I have just found my perfect winter dress

I just love this dress it just ticks all of my boxes. I could wear it anywhere but most importantly I could have bare legs and ankle boots. (my favourite combo)

I feel my new Zara aviator jacket and cap would just work perfectly with it.

Isabel Marant Pardena Dress £340 here

So many more additions to my winter wish list…..

There are so many pieces landing at the moment I barely know which way to turn! I love to wear new clothes instantly I am not very good at keeping them until the weather changes. The things I love today can all be worn now which makes it so much more fun.

This faux suede trench from Zara is very useful with the wonderful weather we are having.  It would go over everything and keep away the morning chill in a very pretty way.

Zara Faux Suede Trench £59.99 here

I also love the coat below, it has a hood which I love and it definitley has a Isabel Marant feel about it. I am thinking this would be perfect for my Canadian adventure in October.

Zara Coat with Hood £59.99 here

The perfect pair of jeans is always a challenge and I think I have found my next pair.

Zara Jeans with Side Frill £29.99 here

The colour of this Isabel Marant top is just gorgeous and I do like to add a piece to two every season.

Isabel Marant Louna top £220 here

I cant have a wish list without a Isabel Marant dress it just wouldn’t be right.

Isabel Marant tiered dress £330 here

There are not so many shoes around at the moment that I love , or do I just have too many pairs already!

I tried these KG velvet pumps on in store (House of Fraser) and I love them. They feel very comfortable and look gorgeous, just perfect for personal shopping.  Unfortunatley they don’t appear to be on any websites yet.

KG Kurt Geiger velvet pumps £119

No matter what anyone says  I really want a pair of furry slides and I have found the perfect pair. They are super comfortable and will take me well into autumn (perfect for flying) I have already tried them and the size 3 was so big the 2 fit me (help)

Zara Faux Fur Slides £49.99 here

 

 

 

Rain rain everyday! Coats to keep you dry & looking good.

It’ s a little bit tiresome the moment it rains nearly everyday so what do you wear to keep dry but still look cool. I have numerous parkas but they are all heavy and as the weather is humid way to warm.

I keep looking in the shops but I really can’t decide, I just keep hoping the sun will come back soon.

I spotted a few things this morning but didn’t try any of them! Tomorrow I will have the same problem, heavy rain very humid and nothing to wear.
