I'm back!

Welcome to my new blog, no more holiday talk, this time it’s all about style!
This new direction is my way of expressing my love of fashion, style and shopping.  I’m aiming to showcase beautiful things, the occasional bargain and unusual and personal gifts. Most importantly, I’m seeking style within a price range accessible to most, not an elite few! 

What to wear?

What better way to kick of my style blog than by with a Garden Party special. It’s not every day I have tea at Buckingham Palace in the company of the Queen of England herself and style queen Kate! What an amazing experience!

I agonised for weeks over my outfit (yes I know, I need to get out more) we have lots of events coming up including Royal Ascot in a few weeks so I wanted to be able to recycle at least a few items. The dress code was fairly vague, just dress and hat. Here are the photos, judge for yourself if it was a success!

Pretty but oh so painful. Polka dot heels; http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Phase+Eight+Bibi+bow+peeptoe+shoes/159749929,default,pd.html

What better accessory than my gorgeous husband ?


My favourite looks on the day were a beautiful but simple emerald green dress with a vibrant purple fascinator as well as some beautiful mocha coloured fascinators teamed with soft corals and florals. Very spring/summer and very stylish.
