Missguided Velvet Floral Top

Top - Missguided
Skirt - H&M (similar)
Heels - old

Hey guys, I hope your all well.  Sorry for the silence on the blog, it's been a busy month trying to juggle job hunting and looking after Ava.  I have finally found a perfect balance and I'm settling into a routine now, planning, scheduling and routine is key!

I feel like I haven't shot any outfits in what feels like forever! this outfit is giving me autumn vibes even though it is now spring lol but I shot this back in March,  all the items have since sold out, tut tut,  no more slow blogging!

Mixed Stripe Culotte Trousers

Culottes - Asos
Top - Missguided
Heels-  Missguided

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  It was my birthday on Sunday, I had a big family dinner on Saturday followed by a night out.  I had the best time, it was definitely long over due as I haven't been able to go out much without Ava as she's only breastfed, but now that she eats and loves her food this mama is ready for a few nights out hahha

Can you believe I have never owned culottes! I just didn't think they were short girl friendly (I'm only 5'2).  But I have seen a few short girls rocking them and it really just depends how you style them.  I love these stripe culottes from Asos.  I think the key to wearing culottes for petite frames is to keep it simple on the top.  Mainly wearing fitted tops and steering clear from baggy tops, you don't want to be swimming in fabric!

Buckle Leather Skirt

Skirt - Missguided
Shirt -  Asos
Heels - Boohoo

I haven't owned a leather skirt for a while now.  I remember I wore a black leather skirt in the office once and I got a lot of 'wow leather in the office' type comments.  It's not like it's frowned upon but no one really wears leather in the office, maybe a leather jacket on dress down Fridays but thats as ambitious as it gets!

Now that particular black leather skirt in question was plain and knee length, I probably wouldn't wear this this skirt in the office, this would definitely be to risque!  I love the multiple buckle detail on the skirt and the quality of the material is thick, I have bought some deceivingly thin faux leather skirts in the past.  I'm looking forward to styling this skirt for a night out.

ASOS Spot Pinny Jacquard Prom Dress

Dress - Asos

When I saw the print on this dress I had to buy it!!  Wedding season is here and I think Asos hands down have the best selection of wedding guest dresses.  I knew I had to add this dress to my collection, its a show stopper.  Who would have thought that bright pink and blue go so well together.  I really like the open back detail, showing a bit of shoulder and back is the new sexy right!

Anniversary Outfit

Dress - Boohoo
Heels - Boohoo
Belt - Primark

Hey lovlies, sorry for the short break.  I have been super busy with meetings.  When you have a baby you go through many phases in the first year.  For me it has been, phase 1 - adjusting to a new baby and post labour body, phase 2 -establishing a new routine, phase 3 - routine established and operation body back!  I have been in phase 3 for quite a few months now, soaking in my time with Ava, enjoying being a new mum and having a break from the office.  Phase 4 has now began! making the transition back into work, learning how to juggle work with a baby and delving into the world of childcare, serious adulting!

I celebrated my second wedding anniversary in March, we decided to take our first family trip to a lovely cottage in Essex for 3 days.  It was so nice to get away from London.  I wanted to dress up for our anniversary dinner but still feel comfortable.  I always turn to red when I want to feel dressed up, so I thought this dress was perfect.  I think its quite a casual dress, so I added the belt to accentuate my waist and heels.  I have already worn the dress with trainers and it works well both ways.
