Beauty in The Abstract




Seriously guys, is there anything better than a fashion bargain? If you can believe it, right now you can get this skirt and jacket set for just £22 from Yours Clothing, which I think is one of the best sale deals I've seen in a long while! 

I really love the concept of having a pencil skirt in a set with a bomber jacket, something so formal with something so casual. The wonderful monochrome print of abstract roses adds another level too and makes it so easy to turn into an outfit with any colour you fancy. The fabric is a nice scuba style with lots of stretch and I think the sizing on both pieces is quite generous, more so on the jacket. I usually wear a 22 top and this jacket is a 20, but to be honest I think an 18 would have been perfect.

The hot pink cami I'm wearing here was £3.00 from Tesco in their in store sale, the shoesies are old season from Dolcis and the necklace is vintage so sadly I can't link to any of them, but we all know it's the co-ord set that takes the cake with this outfit.

If you're looking for more super sale bargains head over to this page of the Yours website - there are lots of lovely pairs of briefs for just £1.00 each so I think I'll be stocking up my undies draw and I must say that this pleated midi skirt has also caught my attention!

Walking the Long Line


Has the weather been crazy where you live lately? I'm in little old Loughborough and it's been pretty mad here, last night just as I was going to bed it started snowing so so heavily I was sure that when I woke up my car would be under about 5 inches of snow so I got up early so I had time to de-ice and take a slow and careful drive to work... but when I woke up and looked out the window there was nothing! No sign at all that it as snowed, and then today was bright and sunny. Needless to say when I saw that I didn't need to scrape the snow off my little car I got straight back into bed for another twenty minutes like any sensible person would do!!!

The snow did leave its chill behind though and so I was ever so glad of this gorgeous Longline Coat (£85.00*) that the wonderful Curvissa team sent me to try out. Now I usually go for fitted styles with a belt to emphasise my waist but I've recently been trying to broaden my horizons a little and try more oversized and unfitted styles. This is an oversized style coat with lovely bold shoulders and a folded collar which gives it a bit of an androgynous edge that I love and has been so on trend over the last few months. It's so fabulously easy to wear too with pretty much anything and it's wonderfully warm and soft. Being oversized also makes it very easy to wear over a sweater without it feeling too snug which is always a plus at this time of year. Another thing that I really like about this jacket is that it isn't made of wool. Odd I know as wool coats are great for keeping you warm I'll grant you that, but they're also a pain if they're dirty as that's a job for the dry cleaner. Not with this baby though, you can wash this yourself at home and spend those dry cleaner pennies on a nice little something something for yourself!

Curvissa also asked four other lovely bloggers to review coats for them so why don't you take a look at their posts too?

Honeymoon Style Wish List

Now Christmas is over the reality has really kicked in that I'm getting married in May, in a little less than four months time! This time last year I was certain I wouldn't be tying the knot until I was about 40 because we'd said we'd buy a house before we got hitched, so I was completely knocked off my feet when Pete proposed in October. To be honest saving for a deposit seems like an insurmountable task in the current climate and it just feels right that this is the next step we take. It's been kind of dramatic planning this wedding (I won't go into detail, but believe me it hasn't been a walk in the park) and I'm so so pleased that now we're heading over to the states with just six other people. Don't get me wrong, planning a wedding in another country isn't a walk in the park but it just feels right, and it means that we get to have our dream honeymoon right after we've got married. I can't believe I'm finally going to the USA, I've wanted to ever since I was little but I never really thought I'd actually be able to and to have that trip to get married to the best man I ever met, well that just makes it extra peachy.

Naturally what clothes I'll be taking is at the front of my mind, luggage weight limits mean I'll have to choose what I take very carefully especially as we'll be starting off in temperatures similar to the UK when it's mild and then going to somewhere really very toasty. Layers will be key and of course I'm determined to still look glam in sweltering hot Florida but I'll need to dress wisely when we hit the theme parks. There's a lot to think about people and I only have 23kg of weight? ARGH! 

Here are some pieces that are high on my wish list to take along on the trip... What do you think should make the cut?
