A Walk In Sherwood Forest : What I Wore..

One day last week we spent the afternoon walking around Sherwood Forest. The children were off school for half term, so keeping them occupied was obviously top priority. 

The sun was shining brightly, with a slight Autumn chill in the air. A great time to wear my new jeans and Poncho from Sainsbury's then!

My Winter Picks From Sainsbury's..

My Winter Picks from Sainsbury's:

A few weeks ago I was asked by Sainsbury's to see if I would like join their Tu Fashion Blogger Community.

 "Eek"  How exciting! 

I am a big fan of their clothing and proud to be asked to become a part of this community. Over the next few months I will be sharing lots of fun news, reviews and so much more.

What I Wore Wednesday..

It has been a fun week so far with the children off school, days out and dog walking.

Today we are hoping the rain will stop as we are off to see our eldest two boys at their Uni. Here is some of the outfits I have been wearing this week:

Enchanted Forest Scarf...

I love to wear scarfs around this time of year.

Usually something bright and fun to add a bit of colour to my plain Winter coats. Giving you a touch of style, but still warm and cosy.

Wiw : Autumn Style And Mustard Tights..

After being spoilt in September with a lovely and warm few weeks of sunshine, this week has been a lot cooler! A real Autumn chill is now in the air. Time now to think of warmer clothes. Long sleeved t-shirts, jumpers and thick cosy tights. Not forgetting to mention granny slippers and onsies!

Last week we had a lovely afternoon; family meal out. 

So I grabbed this sweet cream jacked out of the wardrobe, that I had not worn since Spring and my favourite Autumn mustard colour tights.

First time I had wore this brightly patterned skirt that I picked up early this year off the Primark sale rail. I do love it but it is hard finding things to match with it.

I brought these glitter shoes in the sales at Tesco in January and have been saving them for best, but then got fed up of waiting to wear them!

What I Wore:

Jacket : Jane Norman c/o House Of Fraser
Long sleeved t-shirt : c/o Bonprix
Skirt : Primark
Tights : Primark
Shoes : F&F Tesco

Do you save things to wear for best, then forget to wear them?

Autumn Outfit Layering From Fat Face..

How lovely has the weather been over the last few days!?!

So nice that I got to wear a short sleeved t-shirt on the school run yesterday!

A few days ago I got to pick out and style an outfit from Fat Face.

They are launching a new collection of lightweight, easy to wear layering pieces, designed for everyday wear. Perfect with all this changing weather!

 I had packed most of my Summer clothes away, so perfect timing!

I picked out this lovely Callington Triangle Geo Cover Up and some deep indigo jeggings.

About the cover up:
  • Lightweight Callington cover up is easy to throw on over any outfit. 
  • The waterfall style has beautiful drape qualities that are flattering for everyone, and the all over print packs the perfect punch of pretty.
  • Lightweight fabric.
  • All over print.
  • Three quarter length sleeves
  • Waterfall style collar
  • 55% cotton, 45% modal.
  • Machine washable.
  • £40.00

About the jeggings:
  • So easy and adaptable, these soft jeggings are sure to be a wardrobe staple. 
  • They look great with heels, boots, sneakers or sandals, with just the right amount of stretch for the perfect fit every time. 
  • This deep indigo wash is so versatile; you can team it with pretty much anything.
  • Flattering mid-rise.

  • Zip fly.
  • Branded button fastening.
  • Inside leg: 30".

I love how comfortable the jeggings feel. Even though I have put a little bit of weight on over the summer a size 10 still fits nicely.

The top is very stylish with a lovely pattern and nice a lightweight material.

What I Wore: Kensington Palace..

Last time we went to London we visit Kensinton Palace. 

Whenever we visit London, we know there will be miles of walking involved, so flat shoes are a must! 

I wore my favourite dress of the summer, this pink lace Kaliko dress, teamed up with my white Converse and London print Cath Kidston bag.

Hanneli Mustaparta Collaboration with Deichmann...

 My all time dream job would be a shoe designer.

I have always loved shoes . Shoes Shoes and more Shoes!

I can remember sneaking into my Mums wardrobe when I was little, looking at her shoes collection. Then dancing around in the mirror when no one was looking, in her over sized fancy heeled shoes.

Imagine the start of the movie Kinky Boots dancing away in my own little world!!

Colour : I Will Wear What I Like...

Last weekend we spent a couple of days in London.

Whisking away our two youngest along with a few clothes, we set off to the Capital to celebrate our 19th Wedding Anniversary.

We usually spend every Anniversary on a holiday to Blackpool. Where me and my Hubby first went away together. Many moons ago!! My 2 oldest boys are all grown up now doing their own thing. So it is just the 4 of us who get away together.

London Fashion Week...


London Fashion Week...

Yesterday me my husband and 2 youngest children had a lovely family fun day out in London.

London on a Saturday!?! Oh yes...

Some parts was so busy but we still had lots of fun. For the moment I had completely forgotten that it was London Fashion Week/Weekend. That was until we stumble upon everyone leaving Saturdays event. Talk about being in the right place at the right time!!

The paparazzi were outside and every time they seen someone famous they were running around taking pictures. Not sure myself who the top model/designers are in a quick look so I followed the photographers around to take some cool pictures...

I wish I had not taken my new camera. I am still learning how to use is properly and missed some great shots. Whoo and the shoes... lots of great shoe..

There were models, designers, stylists and then there was me, hehe...

House Of Fraser Review...

Last week House of Fraser asked me if I would like to take a look at their range of ladies coats and jackets. They sell many of these around the £30.00 price tag. I know they are a retailer of high quality premium brands so I was interested in seeing what range of ladies coats they offered around this price point.

Here are my thoughts opinions.

Over to their website I go to see a more detailed look at what kind off coats and jackets were in this range. I selected the ladies clothes, then shop by department, then onto coats and jackets. I opted for the low to high price and was pleasantly surprised at their range of coats and jackets starting as low as £10.00!

They have a beautiful wide range of coats and jackets from sparkly shrugs, printed Kimono's, fur style jackets, floral blazers to biker style jackets and coats.

I was torn between a few different styles from a lovely blue blazer, a tartan jacket and a lovely Jane Norman jacket.  In the end I chose the Jane Norman jacket, which was priced just under £30.00. (I notice now as I post this review, that this jacket has sold out. It must have been a bargain.)

About the jacket:
  • Get your faux fur fix this season in this timeless leather jacket. 
  • Featuring removable faux fur collar, quilted biker details, flattering slim fit, zip pockets, cuffs and front fastening. 
  • Just add a sweep of red lipstick and you will be good to go!
  • Machine Wash 30°C
  • £29.99 (Reduced}

I picked out this beautiful cream Jane Norman style biker jacket. I know this will be perfect for spring. I love the style, colour and shape, it also fits perfectly. The size is a true fit, as you would expect. I opted for the size 10.

To grab a bargain coat you have to be quick, they are selling out fast as most have been reduced in the sales.

About this post:

I got to pick a coat or jacket under £30.00 from House Of Fraser to review. I was not paid for this post and all thoughts are my own honest option.

Cath Kidson Haul...

I adore Red, Polka dots, Cath Kidston, London and London buses. So this is what I brought in the sales. I got some money off my husband and son for Christmas. I wanted to buy something special this time instead of lots of silly little things I would never wear, just because they were cheap.

First choice to spend my money was on some new Irregular Choice shoes I had seen on the Internet and I was sure I would not see anything else in Meadowhall on a shopping trip out. Then you know when you want to just buy everything in the shop?

Well that happened. I was good though I put down things I did not really need and just spent my money on 3 things I really loved.

The best thing was, everything was in the sale and I picked these all up for £56.00. That is £9.00 cheaper than the dress was before Christmas... Bargains eh!?! Can not wait to go to London again now, just might wear my new red dress and polka dot bag...Or some jeans and my London bus bag..
