The Honeymoon 2018 Look

As my summer holiday in 2018 has come to an end, as the school holidays are just beginning (unlucky), I thought I’d do something a little different on my blog and share my summer styles.

Sicily was incredible and you can read all about it in my recent posts, but one aspect I didn’t mention was the outfit choices I made. Here are the outfits I put together, on a very limited budget I might add!

Obviously yellow is a key statement colour this season, and whilst this is in my day to day attire it doesn’t feature much in my honeymoon outfits. This is because I love red and I was the bride so I wanted to incorporate white throughout.

I love a hat and red jumpsuit


It’s a white skirt, this means either white or no knickers!


Love my floral bikini from


My treat from me to me, Gucci sunglasses 😍😍


There are many more outfits, including white laced shorts and more red T’s but I did not take enough pictures!

I cannot wait to go shopping again for more UK summer things, including a new rain coat!

On the hunt: for the perfect bra

I don’t know about you but I find it difficult to find a bra that fits well. Either the wire hurts me or the cup size is not quite right.

Whilst on the hunt for my perfect bra and size I came across Hunkemoller whose bras are very comfy. I chose a black balcony style bra that has removable straps and costs £22.50 to purchase.

Firstly the box the bra arrived in was pretty with a lovely message, however, a little tissue paper instead of a plastic bag would have given it a little extra touch.


The product itself is made well with fabric that is not too flimsy and the bra fastener is in silver with three hook options.



Wearing the bra is a comfortable experience and I am pleased to say that the 32D fit very well 🙂

I wore the item on a weekend when I was active around the house and doing the food shop, and on a weekday at my office desk and on both occasions it held me in place and was very lightweight.

The straps are also removable so I thought I would test this out too and the cups stayed in place much better than many other strapless bras I have tried, although not for longer than an hour, then was a slight slide. The elastic helped keep the bra in place, and that was with the straps too.

Overall, I am happy with this product and would happily purchase from the website.


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.
