Ok, Ok I'll hold my hands up I'm an all or nothing type of girl, especially when it comes to fashion, it's the age old case of been great when it comes to dressing up for occasions and dressing down certainly isn't a problem, leggings and sweatshirts anyone? but that in between minefield of jeans and a nice top is where the struggle starts and the age worry creeps in. Why is it so hard to find something that's nice enough to see you through an evening without been completely over the top and more suited to a 21 year old partying in Ibiza? Now please don't mistake my musings for thinking you need to stop dressing how you want once you reach a certain age, I'm all for wearing whatever you want when you want, you only need to take a look at the queen which is @baddiewinkle on Instagram who is killing this whole attitude, I'm purely talking about how I feel myself at times and sometimes I look and think "nah I'm to old for that now" maybe it's having a teenage daughter, maybe its just my age, maybe it's my waistline, who knows..
For weekend drinks in the sun I wanted a laid back look but for it still to be enough for later on in the night that's why one of my favourite brands to go to is Free People, they seem to have this laid back luxe with a twist of bohemian nailed which is perfect for our warmer months and holidays, team with a good pair of jeans and accessories and you're good to go. I'm a firm believer that accessories can make your outfit and these Chanel dupe mules will be on repeat as they are stylish and comfortable, The whole outfit tones are quite muted so a pop a colour was added with our Ivy bag in peach and my current go to, finishes every outfit off Gucci belt.
Do you find dressing for a casual day out a mine field or do you have a list of go to brands you can always rely on? I'd love to know.
