I think one of the most beautiful things about growing older is finding a serene self confidence and lack of fear of judgement about menial things. Don’t like my hair? My tattoo? My bright clothes? It’s a pretty nice place to get to, when you realise you have let go of caring about anyone else’s opinion about your fashion choices. To laugh along with them and know you feel fabulous, sod the rest! more “Finding style confidence and having fun with fashion again”
In the last couple of years I would definitely say I’ve found my stride when it comes to dressing in a way that makes me feel, well, like me. I guess that’s partly due to some of the inspiring influencers I’ve followed and given me the encouragement to wear the things that make me smile, as opposed to making me blend in – something I was definitely guilty of in my twenties. more “5 looks other people can pull off”
I don’t know about you guys, but sod the actual people watching, more than ever I’m using Instagram as a bit of a platform to lust after, stalk, pin and purchase clothes. more “#HideTheBags; Instagram shopping – Stripy Giraffe Review & #Giveaway”
There is something about the change of season which makes your soul sing and your ability to resist a bargain go down the drain.Jumpers, jeans, boots. Dresses with tights, mustard tones and a new pair of kicks…I didn’t stand a chance on the weekly food shop really did I?

As soon as a Christening invitation for our wonderful friends’ son arrived, I knew I wanted to treat all of us to a new smart outfit to wear. The girls have grown since last summer, my wardrobe is lacking on that certain ‘church appropriate formal wear’ (that hasn’t been worn and washed to death), and it’s the start of a brand new season of sunshine. #PerfectExcuse. more “Christening outfit twinning with @JoJoMamanBebe Spring Summer collection”
I know you might be thinking that I was supposed to be on a budget (Ker-chinging in the changes: Mum on a Budget) since being made redundant. But you know what comes with being made redundant after 14 years service? A very happy payday. And I do need an outfit for Dangermouses christening…and a new coat (since Mr G spotted the 60-odd year old market trader off of Eastenders has the same one as me, which is falling apart).
So, I decided to do a spot of shopping that for once, did not involve Primarni or a food shopping trip turned clothing section accident.
