Another mental week but the sun has started shining so say a prayer all we will need tomorrow is sunwear and sunscreen:)
Alot of sales have started and I have found with the small bit of online browsing I have done that stores must have alot of backstock to sell because items that have been in the Christmas sales last year on some of the popular high street stores are cropping up in their Summer online sales! My debit card has therefore heaved a sigh of relief that I have not bought a single thing online !
For the little boys out there I love these cargo shorts from Dunnes Stores, in a variety of colours and a lovely soft material that won’t chafe the skin during play. Plus you can never have too many pockets when your’e a little boy for all those shell collections!
I spotted these dungarees in teeny tiny sizes in Zara this week, and they go right up to a 3/4. With a simple white T underneath these would be fab on little men who can rock the dungaree look. They’re lovely and lightweight too ,perfect for running around in.
Staying in Zara, for girls this week I spotted this gorgeous striped front knot dress. Teamed with a little pair of Converse for sunny days and layered over navy leggings this will see you through the seasons.
Dunnes have this checkered tunic which would be fab on A,paired with denim shorts or over white skinnes which they have instore too, but would not last very long in this household!
And for me, I had to tear myself out of Penneys and away from this mustard tea dress. The pop of pink in the print would be fab with a pink heel and tanned legs and I love how these dresses can transition to Winter easily with a pair of black tights and ankle boots.
I fell in love with this dress on the hanger. The cold shoulder and ribbon bowties make the dress. The sizing is huge on this, the 10 was like a tent on me but if I had had a skinny belt or was good with a needle and thread to knot this at the waist I would have bought it as it really was lovely on from the top to waist.
Tulle skirts are usually something at my age (sob!) I avoid ,I love them but feel you need just the right amount of puff to make them acceptable and not too young looking. This beautiful peach skirt from Dunnes is divine. I tried it on with the sequined cami I featured recently, the colours match perfectly, but ideally you would need to pair the skirt with a seamless top or one that ends above the wait of the skirt, as otherwise it bulks the waist ,which is what this cami did to the skirt. However there is no denying how pretty both pieces are individually and I’m sure will look lovely styled slightly differently.
Back to Zara for two final beauties. These shoes will never make it home with me, as they are suede and too light to keep clean with toddlers around but how lovely are these. The block heel felt very comfortable on and a good pricepoint too.
Finally, Swoon! Whoever the buyer/designer of Zaras coats is is on the ball because they can do no wrong when it comes to coats, whether its their leathers, blazers, winter puffy coats or occasion wear everything is to die for. Look at this coat, the cut, the fit ,those sleeves! White and toddler twins don’t mix but I think I will have to go back and get this coat it hasn’t left my mind all day.
Enjoy the weekend and don’t forget the sunscreen 🙂
