New Year. New Phase.

Firstly, Hi! This is my First ZmG post for 2017 and it feels good. Its really nice to be back after what has been a mental busy 8 weeks or so. Hence, I’ve truly been the worst blogger on the planet of late. I guess its just that with all the best will in the world, sometimes life with 4 children and various fingers in various pies all over the various place makes life, well, varied … as well as unpredictably busy. Anyway, excuses excuses. I’m back. And I’ve got a about a trillion and one plans for the new year; so…

Easy Smart From Hush Homewear & Topshop

Granny-chic shoes. Your thang? It wasn’t mine … until I walked past these beauts – Now lets look at their credentials, shall we: Animal print? Check. Velvet? Check. Metallic block heel? Check. Khaki representation? Yes check. Guys, these shoes have every ‘on-trend’ detail for this season crammed into one design. Its all here; they are literally ticking all of the trendy little boxes. And for that reason, they came home with me. (Because I am without a shadow of a doubt, the biggest fashion victim ever and If Instagram tells me to wear old lady shoes made from velvety animal print,…

FridayStylefinder: 1 Top. 3 Outfits.

  This week we have one new season top (Animal Print from Zara- £24.99) and I’m showing it with 3 different outfits. The principle being that if you build up a few really good base items over time – in this case a black pencil skirt, and a good pair of black and white jeans, and a pair of neutral heels – then you can update your new season wardrobe with just one item as and when its time for a little treat. You can afford to be brave with this one item too, because its just an accenting piece. So…

FridayStylefinder: Tailored Wide-Leg Trouser from Karen Millen

Happy Friday everyone! apologies for this being a little late in the working day … I got a bit held up earlier! Anyhoo … Trousers, guys. Bright red ones. Big, massive, wide-legged things of 90’s-esque beauty from Karen Millen. Who loves them? God I do! … they may well be a little ‘out there’ for everyone’s tastes, but for me, I think they are fabulous. I know, I do need to have them taken up, but what can I say, I’m a shorty. They have only just arrived in the post but I still wanted to show them to you… However, that…

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…

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: Blush Capsule Collection

Hello, hello! And a very happy Friday to you all 🙂 Yep, Its capsule wardrobe thinking time again … You know me, I dig a capsule collection or ten. I know I had promised to share my sweaty gym favourites this week, but then this little lot came into my life and I got too excited. All you need for such a pinky ensemble is three items. Just three. So, what do we have here? Well, first up on my blush hit list was this little beauty from Topshop This is the nicest Mac/Trench coat thingymejiggy I ever did don … Apparently…

Friday Stylefinder: Smart Spring Neutrals

Happy Friday everyone. Sorry that this Friday Stylefinder post has been away a little while … Its been a little hectic round here! But, I’m back, and very happy about it I am too. So, firstly – Check out the view over my mirror right now as I type … BLUE SKIES!! Its a beautiful, spring like day, and I’m in the mood for light and airy neutrals. Say hello to these gorgeously expensive-looking-but-actually-quite-cheap nude coloured slacks! I luurrrrve them so. Pockets? check. Roomy concertinaed pleated waistband? check. Paired with a trusty white blouse and neutral heels, I feel sharp,…

Friday Stylefinder: Reader Request ~ Halter Neck Tops

Happy Friday everybody! This week, a good friend of mine asked me to help her track down the perfect top for an occasion she has coming up this Christmas. It needed to be blue (navy or royal) , and ideally a halter neck in style (as she likes to show off her cracking shoulders!) Now you know what its like ladies, with zero spare time and very specific requirements, finding the ideal top in a sea of high street shops could end up taking some time and still result in finding nothing or having to compromise or change outfit plans altogether. Fortunately, I am basically…

Friday Stylefinder: A Winter Dress by Pepperberry

Happy Friday Girls! So, have you heard of Pepperberry? They are a sister company of Bravisimo and specialise in clothing for bigger busted women. Lets face it, if you are blessed up top, then trying to find clothing to fit can be a real pain in the shapely plump arse sometimes. With gaping buttons and over taught fabric threatening to blow at any time, this can often result in needing to go up one, sometimes two or three dress sizes. Talk about #firstworldproblems. I don’t want to go UP sizes … who does? We don’t need all that extra fabric everywhere else, Yet…
