It has been a long time coming this outfit rundown, and that’s mainly because half term has intervened and also because I’ve spent the majority of the last week in trackie bums and a hoodie and that’s a look that doesn’t need to be seen anywhere other than between these 4 walls. I ended up… Read More Much belated outfit rundown ……….
Let me tell you how Valentines Day works in our household. No cards, as all involve think it’s a complete waste of money. One year, many moons ago, husband did produce a card but it’s vaguely embarrassing if your romantic gesture is not returned so card giving has never been repeated. It’s not that I… Read More The ultimate romantics us, not …………
As a general rule Cos is too pricey for me. I love the loose shaping and layering of many of their clothes although there’s always one too many drop gusset/harem pants styles for my liking, but hey that’s only me. However I do baulk at paying £70 for a top or over £100 for a… Read More Sales, now we’re talking ……
As the eternal bargain hunter-outer, over the years I’ve bagged myself some fabulous sales buys. Top favourites are my Whistles leather midi skirt and randomly a woolly H&M jumper that I brought for a fiver last year. This year’s top buy has definitely been an Ilse Jacobsen leather mini skirt that I picked up for… Read More Win some, also lose some very hairy ones …..
I think my lack of blogs recently is an indication that squash (be it playing or watching) has officially taken over in this house. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is always to calm it on the squash front but much to my husband’s distain somehow that resolution has gone out of the window with… Read More Finally, finally, an outfit update …….

Seems rather a lot, even to me, as they are all ones that I’d only wear ‘of an evening’ so doesn’t include the assorted dungarees and boiler suits that I have sitting in the wardrobe. I just find a jumpsuit the easy… Read More Is there such a thing as too many? …….
It has now been almost 2 weeks since the sales kicked off and the sole thing I’ve brought is an oversized, grey cardigan from Gap – and this was even before Christmas, so technically doesn’t count. I don’t know what’s wrong with me as normally I can’t get enough of the sales. The problem may… Read More I’m really not feeling myself ……….
So all over for another year and I’m sort of half relieved to leave a world where ‘normal’ is half a bottle of Prosecco for breakfast, supper consisting of Celebrations and cold turkey and being surprised to find it’s already 4 in the afternoon and you haven’t even got out of the PJs. So back… Read More Out of hibernation, finally ……….
So a client requests a tan leather skirt, any sort of style not fussed, just has to be a tan/brown colour. Easy peasy Mrs White smugly thinks to herself and then goes shopping where she is proved …… totally wrong. The high street is crawling with black leather skirts of every description but tan leather… Read More The lesser spotted tan leather skirt …..
Been a busy old week and it’s interesting (well relatively that is, in the scheme of things) when you look back on outfits worn when you literally haven’t given what you’re wearing a moments thought. The result can go two ways, either complete odd ball affair or just a reverting to a comfort zone of… Read More When in doubt, blue & black …..
