Earn your Stripes!

Everybody loves a stripe right? But forget your tame old Breton t-shirt, this Spring Summer you need to wear your stripes bright, bold and in as many different directions as possible! This trend is all over the high street and I love it! Vertical stripes are really flattering and it’s a really fun way of experimenting with colours you might not be brave enough to wear normally. Check out my favourites from the high street below and if you cross your eyes an image will jump out at you! (Not really! – that is an 80’s child, Magic Eye joke and i’m sorry if it makes no sense to you.) Continue reading

The back to work wardrobe – returning to work in style.

Recently my friend Zoe asked me to come up with some outfits for her back to work wardrobe after 3 years maternity leave. Zoe is returning to her job in the retail industry where her office dress code is smart casual but she also needs to be smart enough entertain clients at a moments notice. She is a busy mum of three young children so I kept this in mind when I was thinking about her outfits too. Continue reading

How to wear the Western trend for Spring / Summer 2018

This summer it’s time to take a trip to the Wild Wild West! Now before you say ‘shut the hell up Sam I am not dressing like a bloody cowboy’ just humour me for a sec.

The trends you need to know for Spring / Summer 2018

Christmas is over and we are fully into 2018. It’s still pitch black by 4pm and absolutely freezing but give it a month and the days will start getting longer, temperatures will go up and we might be able to start talking about Spring!

Spring brings with it new fashion and I am excited! There are loads of fantastic new trends for Spring / Summer 2018 and i’ve done a little round up below of my favourites.

I’ve chosen the trends that I think are most wearable for your average 30+ working mummy, because lets face it not all of us can walk round with our knickers showing through a transparent skirt and get away with it – I know it’s frowned on at my office and doing the school run wearing head to toe vinyl might be fashion forward but it may get you a reputation as a different sort of ‘working’ mum…

I’m going to start with my absolute favourite trend Lilac. All pastel shades are hot for SS18 but by far the hottest is Lilac. This isn’t a colour i’d usually wear but I am ready to try it! The catwalk models wore it head to toe which looks amazing but if like me you don’t usually wear this colour why not test the water with one item of clothing and see how you like it. I have added some items from the high street which are available now below.
