Summer Dresses from House of Fraser

This summer I feel like I’ve been stuck in a bit of a style rut. We’re half way through summer, and I feel like I’m wearing the same boring clothes day in, day out. I’d love to update my wardrobe a little. One thing I’m seriously lacking is dresses. I did have a lot of nice dresses, but donated a lot of them to the charity shop after gaining weight. My wardrobe is full of jeans and tees, so I could really do with a dress or two to mix things up a bit. I’ve been looking at the range of […]

Summer Sandals from Jones Bootmaker

Summer is officially here. The sun is shining and the heat is rising. For the first time this year I’ve been thinking about baring my pasty whites in a summer dress.

School Run Style Wish List

I used to love getting dressed up and looking my best every day. Before having the kids, I would spend at least an hour in front of the mirror every morning. Now, I’m lucky if I get ten minutes. By the time I’ve rolled out of bed and got the kids ready for school, I’m usually running around at the last minute trying to find something to pull on. Before children, choosing an outfit for the day meant taking a few things out of the wardrobe, and putting different items together to see what looked good. These days, I grab […]
