Dress Hunting at Yours

July is going to be a very busy month for us, and also a very expensive one! We have one of my closest friend's wedding and two christenings, including one for our to youngest. So I've started looking for dresses, much to the dismay of my husband, and my bank account. Hubby suggested I just buy one new dress and wear it for all three events.... I don't think so! But I do want to keep my spending as low as I can, but still look nice.

So the hunt is on! First up, what I found at Yours.

February Wishlist

January is finally over. It always feels like such a long month for many reasons - the end of Christmas/New Year celebrations, the return to the school routine, having no money and realising that another year has flown by and we are all just getting older! So what next...... well February of course! We are nearly 2 weeks into the shortest month of the year already, and that's crazy! But I'm now starting to think about new clothes I want to buy for the spring and intrigues to see what trends are going to come around this year.

So after some internet window shopping, I've made my February wishlist.

Taking centre stage in my wishlist this month is a lovely red body piece from Yours to celebrate Valentines Day. It's got a plunging neckline, lots of gorgeous lace and a cut out on the back to give it all you need to look and feel sexy. Also from Yours is this lovely bird print dress. Skater dresses are still my favourite style of dress for my body shape, and this could easily look lovely dressed up or down. 
Boots are great in any season, and I loved the look of these Chelsea boots with buckle detail. They would go nicely with dress but I love wearing my boots with skinny jeans or leggings also. Having the jeans/jeggings taper down to the ankle and then a nice chunky boot is my favourite look, and these berry jeggings from Evans are one of my favourite colours. I love the combination of burgundy and black together. 
Out of my comfort zone is the floral print sweatshirt from Simply Be, but it is something that I think I would grown to love. Again, team it with a nice pair of skinny jeans and some boots, or even the pink trainers from Evans, and I think it's something casual but with a little something extra. 
I'm trying to expand the pattern content in my wardrobe as I have noticed that most things are either black or just very plain. Even the little zip pocket detail on this top from Dorothy Perkins is a nice little touch to dress up a plain black shirt.

I'm back!

I'm back after what seems like forever! 2016 went by in the blink of an eye, finding out and announcing our pregnancy, summer, getting ready for baby and then the safe but long arrival of our beautiful baby girl Lucy Rose (labour post coming up). Then between 1st November til now has been both kids birthdays, christmas and just getting back into a routine with all 3 kids and hubby.
I'm finally in a position to feel like I can write a post again, and make some time for me to do the things I enjoy. I really liked blogging, but lost my motivation for it when I was pregnant. I was living in leggings and spending most time either sleeping or working, so didn't have much to blog about. I wasn't buying new clothes or had any time to contemplate buying clothes, so didn't feel I had much to offer.
I'm still getting back into the swing of 'normal' life, but I know that I do want blogging to be part of it, and it's up to me to make that happen. First off, decking what I want it to be about, and at the moment that's going to be Lucy, food and crafting. But maybe fashion, TV and sport too. I just want the blog to reflect me and my life, and that's a mixture of everything, so expect the unexpected!
And Happy New Year ☺
