FridayStylefinder: Two Summery T-shirt Dresses

For this weeks #Fridaystylefinder I thought it only right to feature clothes that are actually applicable to our sudden onset of (very welcome) summer. Basically, I’m showing the dress that I am actually wearing today, plus its sister dress –  I love this dress that I’m wearing so much that I bought a similar one. I’ll show you … This is what I’m wearing today – Its from Boden (I know. Boden again!) but I love its simplicity. I love that its loose and comfy, and its just perfect for a day working from home, and doing a bit of…

Guest Posting on Mummy’s Got Style – The Not-So-Good Photos

Last Friday, I was super fortunate enough to feature on the fabulous site: Mummy’s Got Style (The style blog of super-blogger Vicki of HonestMum). The theme was ‘Festival Style for Mums’ and it seemed only fitting to shoot the photos whilst enjoying a (VERY boozy) picnic with friends, accompanied by one seriously cute VW camper van … Just to put this into perspective if you aren’t familiar  – Mummy’s got style Is a very popular and busy site. Its uber professional and my guest post needed to reflect that. Now that’s all fine, I’m happy and comfortable with professionalism. Professionalism is my middle name.…

FridayStylefinder: A Perfect Wedding Guest Dress by Oasis

That lovely moment when a beautifully wrapped wedding invitation drops onto your doormat is an exciting one. It is. And lets face it, we all know why – Its not just because of the joyous impending nuptials between your beloved friends or family, it is also (mainly) because it means you have permission to buy a new outfit. Probably new shoes too. definitely a new bag. Its THE LAW. And whilst Its not a written law as such, it would still stand up in any court I’m sure, because its the peoples law … you know, much like ‘bagsy’ or calling ‘shotgun’, You know it.…

FridayStylefinder: Topshop Polka Dots & Tights

Happy Friday lovely people! … (I’m always very tempted to write ‘Happy Friday Y’all’ … what is with that? I’m from Brighton not Tennessee!) I’ll stick with my roots and just use ‘Hello’. So anyway, Hello! Its Friday. Its freezing. What a surprise! therefore, instead of the lovely white short and top combo I planned to show you, I am instead digging out the old 70 deniers, together with a nice soft woolly scarf. (Again, another apt reminder that this is April in England NOT Tennessee) ‘Smart tailoring meets playful’ in this lovely shirt dress from Topshop, and is just bang-on for smart casual…

FridayStylefinder: A Leather Skirt

OH MY GOD, I LOVE THIS SKIRT! Hello, by the way. Happy Friday 🙂 Lets just get straight on with this, shall we? What do you think?     Firstly, lets address my shoe choice: Basically, If I team something with the old Loubs, then you know that I for one, think its right up there. I don’t very often get the Loubs out you see. They are way too special. (Which makes them the most pointless shoe purchase in history because I never wear them. Ever.)     This is the Lilford front split skirt, and is made out…

FridayStylefinder: Red Suede & Stripes

Happy Friday 🙂 This week, I wanted to show my current favourite outfit: My stripy grey red combo! I love red (as you know by now) And I love grey. And I love stripes. In fact, I’m willing to bet that there isn’t a 30 something mum out there who doesn’t love at least one of these elements? I’ve featured these shoes so many times on the site now, that you may well be sick of seeing them, but I still love them – Real love never dies. I’m quite sure I will still be loving them hard in 20 years…

Blue Pattern Is The New Black

Along with red shoes (Can you tell?) I’ve a thing for Blue. Blue patterns in particular. So imagine my joy at reading in countless fashion magazines this month that blue is set to ‘have its moment’ 🙂 And as I stand here, in my mirror, marvelling at a blue sky wearing a blue skirt with the blue patterned cushions on my bed, I also see from my bedside table that my allegiance to all things blue and patterny has reigned strong for a little while now … (So has my love of Walberswick in Suffolk!) And what’s even cooler, is that this season, designers…

Body Confidence, Blogging & Outfits

  After just a little over year of blogging outfits on ZmG’s #FridayStylefinder post, I wanted to do a write an explanation of sorts. A conclusion, if you will. So, question: do I choose to write about fashion because I’m an expert; a qualified stylist; a total legend in the style stakes? God NO! and nor do I, for any amount of cotton-pickin’ seconds think that that I posses any particular flair for the subject. I just love it is all. And that’s all there is to it really – That’s the only reason I write these posts. I guess one of the perks…

Friday Stylefinder: The Mock Collar Upscale

Happy Good Friday all! I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend … But first… This. The Mock Collar! Have you got one?  If not, then flippin’ get one, they are a must for everyone’s wardrobe, and once purchased will be good for decades … DECADES I tell thee! Voila I got it last week from Cos in Brighton at £29 – they do a few different styles – The one I have here, a blue and white striped one, and one with scalloped edges. Its not a real shirt obviously. Instead its much like a baby bib giving the illusion of one.…

Friday Stylefinder: One LBD Styled Two Ways

Happy Friday guys 🙂 I’m super excited today as I have a party tonight, then a girly weekend in Brighton tomorrow. So, I can hardly contain myself right now. Deep breaths Anna. Deep breaths. (Note to self – must not drink too many Proseccos at party tonight and peak too early) Okay, for this weeks Friday Stylefinder, I’m looking at the most classic and iconic wardrobe staple a girl can own : The gorgeously trusty little black dress. You’ve got one, right? Maybe more than one, maybe like me you’ve got about 23 of them. I recently bought a little gem from Pied a…
