Stylish in half term

It is half term this week and if your anything like me you will be juggling activities with children and working. I have found you some beautiful pieces in our great high street so you can look stylish in whatever you get up to this week.

The denim shirt is a real must have piece for your wardrobe this season and this one from River Island at £35.00 is one of my favourites as it has the embroidered detail on the shoulders, great for the hour glasss, pear and slender/athletic body shape as it draws the eye upwards and helps rebalance the lower body and create curves. Little tip….River Island still has their sale both online and instore.

I also found this piece of knitwear from Label lab which is available in House of Fraser, reduced from £50 to now £35. A real simple piece of knitwear with a batwing sleeve perfect for those ladies who are the apple body shape as it hides the tummy.


To add interest to the neckline of the jumper this super pearly necklance from H & M at £14.99 is gorgeous, the icy tones of the pearls will look great and fab with the jacquard trousers below. Little tip……a bold necklace is perfect for those Top Heavy ladies as they draw the eye away from the bust. Don’t forget to use a scarf as an accessory item too, not only do they keep you warm but look lovely too.

A great alternative to jeans are these lovely berry jacquard trousers from Zara, these are £32.00 which I think is a great price as they can used to create different looks during the AW12 season. Remember the ‘cost per wear’ rule….divide the cost of the item you buy by how many times you think you will wear it, you will be amazed how cost effective your item becomes.

If the weather stays chilly then either add in a wollen, quilted coat or padded coat to complete the look. A coat can really show your personality and remember if you are ever in a rush a coat can cover a multiple of sins!!!

I rather liked this one from Zara at £59.99. Belted coats help to accentuate the waist, perfect for the hour glass, pear and slender/athletic. This quilted coat also helps add in an additional fabric and texture to the outfit.

And finally, this great western style boot from Top Shop are perfect, these are £75.00 and you can really make use of them this season as they are a colour that will go with so many different looks. Top Shop are currently offering free standard delivery on all orders online over £75.00



lots of love
