What to Wear?

These last few months I have had a jammed packed calendar – great right? Well, yes but I want to dress well and always look good and that’s difficult when you’re plans are with the same people and you’re on a budget. I needed to restyle my existing wardrobe and spend as little as possible.

The Wedding


One of the events I had to attend was my (to be) brother-in-law’s wedding. Now this came with its own challenges I didn’t want to wear anything too revealing but I didn’t want to dress older than my age either (26 by the way). Early this year I went on a cruise and had purchased a floral dress for the occasion but I just wanted some new shoes to jazz it up a little. However finding the shoe I wanted within my budget (£20) was not easy. I looked everywhere for my perfect shoe, which was black, heeled, ankle height, plain with plenty of detail in the design – I wasn’t asking for much. Eventually I found some from New Look – they always have great shoes.

The Party

blog-image-number-2A party with free food and drink is my kind of party but when it involves the in-laws and the partners work colleagues, it loses its appeal! Well, it isn’t that bad but deciding what to wear was made just a little more difficult by the fact that it was partly outside and its winter. I may sound like an old lady and fashion should come first but why can’t I be stylish and warm?

So, the conundrum began it was six o’clock, the taxi would be here by seven and I still hadn’t decided what to wear. I had the man friend rushing me, my son to take to take care of and what felt like the countdown clock pressurising me to HURRY UP! After rushing my make-up and hair (15 minutes – record) I was ready to choose my clothes; there were dresses, shirts, blouses all spread onto the floor. Eventually I settled on my favourite jumper from French Connection and some grey style jeans with my shoes from the wedding – what a purchase. I would urge everyone to invest in some black sandal style heels; they go with everything and can be worn day or night.

The Ball

Next I have an Alpine Ball to look forward to. Again I find myself in the same situation – going out with people who have already seen most of my wardrobe and I’m on a budget. There are a few outfits I’m considering but I don’t seem to have the shoes to go with them. But that’s not a big issue I will have fun finding some. I will keep you updated on how this goes and share some pictures with you once I’ve found the right outfit.
