Andy Pandy

I love jumpsuits, the ease of putting on one thing and that's it, your outfit for the day is sorted . For some reason I only have one in my wardrobe and then when I wear it I remember why....dashes to the loo and not leaving enough time to un-dress...you can figure out the rest!

But I still love them, here is my round up from the sales at ASOS

Kookai Silk Jumpsuit  £47.50
ASOS Wave print jumpsuit £22
Yes I know this has a touch of the Andy Pandy about it, maybe I am going through a Man Repeller  moment? But look how summery you would feel wearing one of these, especially since the Summer hasn't quite happened for us in the UK

APC Madras Silk crepe jumpsuit £120

For the more sophisti-cat readers, you can't go wrong with this chic number

Lost in Cos

Sooooo I had some time to kill one lunch break and oh look Cos has a sale on *wanders in* and before I knew it I had 6 dresses in my arms and headed into the changing room......

Needless to say I walked out with several purchases. I may go back for the neon yellow jersey dress! Yeah 40 somethings can rock colour!!!
Only the navy dress had sleeves which I thought would be a good long term investment when my arms start to develops bingo wings. Now I am in an age quandry, do I shop for now for the figure I have (looking good and toned after 3 kids) or start to think ahead when bits of skin start to slacken and need covering up? I love the fact I can pull out something 18 years old and still get into it (my first Whistles purchase white cotton skirt). 

But doesn't there come a time when you have to dress age appropriate? Yeah talking about Madonna here. Inside I still feel like I'm 30 especially at work when I am child-free. Until I come across a CV ad shrill out "How old? born in 1991?!?!?!?"

A night off

For a dear friend's 40th birthday treat, we spent the night away from our kids at Cannizaro House and had a few glasses of champagne, a delish dinner, wine and lethal cocktails at the hotel bar ....it got very messy and by 2am I went awol and spent a couple hours throwing my guts up!

Shoe porn alert

Dear readers I selfishly kept back these details but the flurry of tweets today about how good the Nicholas Kirkwood shoe sale is I can no longer hide them. Sale ends today at 8pm and shoes are now buy one and get second pair free (lower price). Plenty of sizes and half sizes available - I photographed a selection so excuse my rather fat looking cankles. It was hot in there and my feet swelled up!

Jubilee celebrations

It's raining, no surprise but I am freezing in my red, white and blue outfit....fashion mojo has gone out of the window for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
We got to the venue early and well we're still waiting for the party to start...

So I'm going to head into the Saatchi Gallery to get warm and dry off!!!!
