Blouses and why I can never leave TK Maxx without at least one…

When I have an afternoon off for running errands I invariably end up having a little look in TK Maxx. And more times than not I walk out with at least one blouse. And this week was no different. Three blouses. Each was under £20.

My favourite picks from the sale at The Remedi

I receive lots of emails from clothing sites, all trying to tempt me with their shiny wares. Including The Remedi who stock beautiful clothes, lots of silk dresses, tops and accessories but alas my purse is normally scared into a hidey place by the prices so I instead stalk their sales.

So when their recent sales email tumbled into my inbox I couldn’t resist a little peek at what they had on offer. Here are some of my favourite pieces. Continue reading

Whatever the weather may be…

So currently the British weather cannot decide if it’s still winter or actually spring. Bringing us days filled with bright sunshine yet still frosty cold. My short 15 minute walk to the station fills me dread each morning as I try to decipher what to wear that will keep me warm in my generally cold office yet comfortable and not hot whilst I’m walking. I also have to decide whether to carry a brolly if it rains, boots or shoes , opaque tights…the list goes on. Continue reading

New Season Brights – Colour Pop!

Colour Pop

Since I’m on clear out mode regarding my wardrobe I can’t go out and buy any more clothes but I wanted to inject some missing colour into my outfits.

Peter Pan Wishes he had Collars Like This…

Want to add an extra zing to your outfit but jewellery just doesn’t go. I’ve found that when a top or dress has a high neckline a necklace or choker just looks kinda funny. Peter Pan Collars are everywhere at the moment, from dresses and blouses to coats and cardigans.

I’ve taken a look and found some stand alone collars that can be worn with several outfits. Think of them as jewellery or temporary embellishment for your clothes.
