You know when you and your friend channel the exact same outfit... well this is just what happened to me and my friend Nellie! We were definitely on the same page last Saturday night. Who doesn't love a leopard print midi anyway!
I'm in the green. It was my first time wearing this WHISTLES skirt which I got for Christmas. I love it so much! I can't wait to wear it more casually too. Nellie's skirt is TOPSHOP and both out bodies are ASOS. I love a body because they always look so neat, no ruffling up and always staying firmly tucked in.
My boots were a new purchase... I've been after socks boots for ages and was so excited when I found these on ASOS. Even though they were a tad too high for me I thought I'd keep them anyway. I loved wearing them the whole night, but was so upset to find in the morning that they had a big hole in the back of one of the boots! I'm sure this was just a bad pair so have ordered replacements. Hopefully this pair stay whole! Find all links at the bottom of the post!
I've recently bought this pair of gorgeous green trousers from NEWLOOK and have so enjoyed wearing them! They are great in the warmer weather and so easily paired with a tee for a casual but comfy every day look.
I've rounded up my favourite statement trousers on the big street at the moment... I think a fair few of these will end up in my wardrobe!
Am absolutely loving all the brights colours and prints around at the moment! Just click on the image to shop!
The side stripe trend has been around for quite a while now... but it's taken me a while to find a pair of trousers that were right! I'd had my eye on a Whistles pair for ages, but couldn't quite justify the spend! I then came across these in ZARA for just £19.99... so of course I bought them. They actually feel like leggings to wear. So comfy!
I've paired them with an over size black knit. Anything even slightly leggings like, I need to cover my bum. So this worked perfectly, and is from ANNA POULSEN (a little independent shop in Tunbridge Wells). My shoes are my new RUSSELL AND BROMLEY loafers and I'm so in love with them! I've worn them almost every day since I got them and have not had a single blister. They are made of such a soft leather that they needed no wearing in at all.
My bag, you will have seen in my latest post. My RADLEY backpack. This is also fairly new and forgot how much I loved a backpack until I got this one. It's such a perfect size and is so handy always having those hands free. I don't know how I'd be with out it now!
I am ALL about the staple pieces for your wardrobe. My leather jacket gets worn such a lot, it was so worth spending just that little bit more on it because it really does last! Today I am wearing a new pair of black leather boots and also a new leather backpack. Both items that won't go out of style and should last rather a long time!
I love a classic chelsea boot and these ones from MODA IN PELLE are so comfortable too! They needed no wearing in and I've not had a single blister. I have pretty much worn them everyday since they arrived to. I love them!
My new backpack is from RADLEY. Since wearing this I've remembered how practical it is to have a backpack... especially being a mum! It means I've got my hands free all the time which is always ideal. I've had so many complements on this bag too, I love it so much!
The jumper I'm wearing today (by the way it's an absolute bargain at £22) I actually spotted on someone on Instagram. I quickly went to buy it but there was a 3-4 week wait!! It didn't worry me too much so I placed my order... and waited patiently. It arrived earlier this week, and oh my goodness its cosy! It's got a lovely fleece lining so perfect for this chillier weather.
My necklaces I wear most days so you will have definitely seen these before if you follow me on Instagram or have been reading my blog for a while. Both from Missoma, but my little F charm is new... for my baby girl Florence!
Hooray for my first ever Mothers Day which is quickly approaching! Since having Florence my world has changed for ever in the best way possible. I suddenly have someone to put first in every way possible, not because I have to, but because I want to.
The amount of joy this little person brings is just amazing. Seeing every little development is so rewarding. So far, rolling, sitting (with a little help) smiling and giggling... every second is amazing.
I guess it's not a bad life being fed, cuddled, napped and then repeating that all over again for a very long time. What's not to be happy about.
For my first Mothers day I plan to be lazy! Florence and I have both been treated to some gorgeous new pyjamas from Debenhams for the occasion. Aren't they beautiful! I've linked them both at the bottom of the post. My Pj's are by Nine - Savannah Miller and Florence's are by Bluezoo. Also, my pyjamas must be made on a non crease material. I woke up and my pjs literally looked like they'd just been taken off the hanger!
If any Dad's out there happen to be reading this... these are great presents!!
Wishing every single Mummy the happiest of Mothers Days this Sunday!
