Back in black…

Hi Folks! …Yes I am back after a little break and I am glad to tell you I shall be blogging away from now on.

I threw myself into this blog and sort of burnt myself out! I started this blog through my love of fashion and wanted it to be a journal of my personal style and lifestyle and also for it to be fun!

I started to become a little obsessed with putting an amazing out fit together everyday and quiet frankly being a busy mum of three, with work and other commitments it is very difficult to look camera ready everyday, not to mention the strain on your bank balance when you try and wear something different everyday.  Some days all you want to do is throw the same pair of jeans on you had on yesterday! ( I can hear the gasps of horror from fellow fashion bloggers!) So I have decided to “chill out” a bit and just post a couple of times a week or whenever I want to share with you a great purchase or outfit. So I hope you continue to enjoy my ramblings and style pics .

Today although a beautiful day had me reaching for black. I do love wearing black in the summer especially with a tan and with the colour tan accessories, lovely colour combo.

So I swished and floated on the school run with my gorgeous Asos black pleated midi skirt, Topshop vest top, Micheal Kors Sandals and Next belt, teamed with my old faithful Mulberry Bayswater in tan.

Do you wear black in the sunshine? What is your favourite colour with black?

Let me know your thoughts, and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

  1. Good to have you back Amanda! I have never been a fan of black in summer but bought a Hobbs maxi dress a few months back and now I love it! Your black outfit looks fantastic with the tan accessories and those sandals are super lush! x

  2. Very chic look!

  3. Hi Amanda, Welcome back, no gasps of horror here, I’ve been known to wear the same pair of jeans on consecutive days, we put too much pressure on ourselves. Love black in the summer particularly with a tan, so chic.

  4. I’ve only just started blogging and I can see how it could easily become addictive! Gorgeous outfit here, love tan and black together. Lynne x

  5. I love black & tan together! You look lovely & perfectly styled! Ax

  6. Really lovely to see you back with a bang in the black and tan outfit! I was in awe of how you managed to blog practically everyday….I barely manage to knock one post out a week! xx

  7. Definitely no gasps of horror here either – this is why I only blog twice (at a push maybe 3 times) a week. Blogging should be fun, as we have enough pressures in other areas of life. Good to have you back and as always, you look sensational!
