This year is the year I moved on from my skinny jeans! I am not totally without them of course, but the two pairs I bought from Gap that are their straight leg cut have had so much wear already. These were my bargain £12 ones teamed with a very old H&M t-shirt and Next animal sandals. Just a school run/about town look!
And then the skinnies came out for a girls night out! These are also Gap, their wet look jeans. I love the fit however the coating hasn't lasted as long as I had hoped. Teamed with a blush pink lace Warehouse top and some very high heels (luckily we sat and caught up over cocktails and didn't have a dance!).

Another day look - before the weather heated up of course. Ralph Lauren ankle skimming jeans with a Cos top. I've rolled the sleeves up a little as they finished just around my elbow and felt a little long. I love the bright yellow hem, it really gives the top another dimension taking it from plain to having that little pop of colour.
Im very pleased with my J.Crew purchases this year and this top has been no exception. As I mentioned in my previous blog about it, I was a little dubious about the jewelled neckline but it has been in the machine, inside out on a hand wash cycle and no problems at all. Gap jeans again and possibly my most worn shoes so far this year, my rose gold Primark sandals. Don't get me wrong, they go with so much and are easy to throw on if I've not painted my toenails, but I know that won't be around next season as they have been well worn. At £12, I didn't really expect them to last next season anyway.
You get the idea - there's a theme to my casual looks - denim! Flats were needed for the Robbie Williams concert and a cardi for when it got cooler. I dug out this old Topshop cardi (and I'm talking 8+ years here) that has little peach flowers on it. Somehow, it has stood the test of time and worked perfectly with my shoes and handbag. The top is sleeveless, needed for the heat inside the O2.
Bag; Italian - no idea, sorry!
It's been years since I saw Robbie solo (naturally I saw him when he reunited with Take That - HUGE fan!) and for some reason I didn't have any expectations, but he was amazing. A true entertainer and the style of songs worked perfectly for him (his Swing Both Ways tour). His Dad even came on to perform with him!
Because.....it really is so true!
