Neutrals, Mom’s and Brogues

I am not going to start this post moaning about the weather as I have in my last two posts, I am even boring myself with it so my lip’s are sealed! Charlie my youngest boy (4) was feeling a bit poorly today so it was mum duties of playing trains, watching films (Frozen is […]

Baby Pink and Faux Fur

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Well it’s still chilly up’ North and just like down’ South very grey! I have all my spring clothes just itching to make an appearance and they are trapped in my wardrobe until Mr Sunshine decides to show his face. Today I have been working hard on the teething problems […]

Biker, Black and Heels

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Blimey, its a cold one today! I know we have pollution from the Sahara desert but crikey where has spring gone? My wardrobe doesn’t know wether its in or out, Winter or Spring, just as I think I will get all my summery clothes out it throws a day like […]

Spots, Black and bursting with pride.

I have admired the spotty phenomenon from a far for a couple of weeks and thought the spotty blouse looked gorgeous so thought I would join in. I saw this cream with navy spots blouse in River Island and knew this one was the one for me. I love the collerless cut with navy ribbon […]

Pink, Stripes and Silver Highlights

Good Morning, Hope you all had a great weekend, especially all of you mummy’s out there on Mothers Day yesterday. I had a Mothers Day weekend really ( milked it for all I could) because I knew that I was being taken out on Sunday for lunch, I thought I would take my mum out […]

Stripes, Leopard and “bob”

Hi Folks, hope you have had a good day. I went for it today and had half of my hair cut off!! I always wore my hair up and have worn it up for about the last two years. So the time came today to get rid of it so that I could wear it […]

Black, White and Gold

With the challenge over, it was a bit strange standing in front of my wardrobe this morning without instructions. So after being told what to wear for 30 days, I went straight for my creature comforts. I actually forgot I had these jeans, they are 7 For All Mankind and are a really dark navy […]

Challenge day 29 & 30…Challenge complete

Hi everyone, hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was extremely hectic as expected as I explained in my previous post it was my son’s 4th Birthday party. It was a fantastic party, a traditional children’s party with party games, children’s entertainer , balloons and bags of fun. The children were probably climbing the […]

Challenge day 28: Incorporate a office appropriate blouse to your weekend look

Ok, Hands up, I have got the challenges mixed up today should be “ give a feminine dress some edge with a Moto jacket” so I will do that one tomorrow. Here’s hoping there isn’t any challenge police. Just so happens that I have the perfect jacket for that one too. Today the gorgeous leather […]

Challenge Day 27: Try a sleek and slouchy look.

Slouchy is easy I could just keep my Pj’s on, I love a good Pj day, but to combine sleek and slouchy was a little confusing. I took it as loose fitting yet still smart, so I chose to wear my new “mom” jeans again. These jeans are my new favourite, they are the perfect fit […]

Challenge day 26: Wear a bold coat with simple essentials.

I have managed to get to Day 26 without worrying that I don’t own the item needed…until today. I don’t own a bold coat because they just aren’t my cup of tea. I can’t remember when I last owned a bright coloured coat ( maybe when I had a bright red one at about 7yr […]

Challenge Day 25: Dress up distressed jeans

Loving the last few days of the challenge, today is what I normally do.. Jeans, jacket, heels is my uniform, although I am being a bit more adventurous thanks to this challenge and a few things I will be carrying forward to my everyday style.  Distressed boyfriend jeans can be worn whatever your age I […]

Challenge Day 24: Layer in an unexpected way.

Straight away when I saw this challenge I thought “Superman” …..pants over leggings. That would be very unexpected when I picked the kids up from school, and I white tight jacket with lots of straps would probably be my next outfit! Bra over top? That would be unexpected too. Keeping it realistic and legal I […]

Challenge Day 23: Wear a colour you haven’t worn in a while.

Happy glorious spring Sunday! What a great weekend, BBQ’s were being dusted of across the country no doubt and that feeling of warmth on your skin is like meeting a long lost friend.  Today’s challenge did worry me a bit, being Miss black and cream I did have to think about this, and when I […]

Challenge Day 22: Keep it simple with skinnies and a sweater.

Yippee! My kind of challenge, especially on a Saturday..Perfect.  I am feeling a bit under the weather so I wanted to be comfortable and skinnies and a sweater is exactly what I would normally wear when feeling like this.  After sending Mr HOL out to do the shopping for me,  I had a little route […]

Challenge Day 21: Belt your outerwear.

Well the “challenge gods” were shining on me today (or so I thought) ..After 30 minutes of trying to make my coats look nice with various belts all of which made me look like a sack of spuds tied in the middle, a delivery from French Connection arrived with a cream trench coat WITH belt. […]

Challenge Day 20: Dress down your favourite black dress.

I can’t believe I am on day 20 of the challenge, only 10 more to go and I am going to buy myself a little medal for my great achievement ! Today’s challenge was unusual for me as you know I am not a great fan of a skirt in the day, so to wear […]

Challenge Day 19: Pair two of your favourite denim pieces together, plus Harvey Nichols fashion show highlights.

Hi, What another glorious day and I am certainly full of the joys of spring! Firstly yesterday I was the winner of the Harvey Nichols twitter competition, where you had to pick an outfit to go with an IRO Paris leather jacket and I won and won the IRO Jacket (Worth £900..WOW!!) So as you can […]
