FM40 STYLE | ONE SKIRT THREE WAYS




P O L K A  D O T 



When we had a gorgeous spell of lovely weather I was a bit stuck with what to wear other than my normal uniform of jeans and summery blouses. I felt a lot of my summer dresses were too holidayish to wear daily. I had zero success with all the polka dot wrap dresses I had ordered from Next which had all been returned.

While watching an episode of the Sheerluxe show I saw Georgie wearing this skirt and initially thought it was the Ganni polka dot skirt. It was in fact a much cheaper version from H&M

It was the inspiration I needed ...... Could this skirt work for me?

See the three ways I thought how I could style it.

I ordered the skirt, the reviews said the sizing was extremely on the small size. 
I am normally a 10-12 so I ordered a 14 and later on ordered a 16 just to be on the safe side. I could get the 14 on and zipped up, but the 16 was far more comfortable and flattering on .... a size 16! H&M thankfully are addressing their sizing I believe. I also ordered this t-shirt to go with it and I am really, really impressed with it. It was only £6.99 and looks and feels better than some expensive t-shirts I have purchased in the past.

On style sheets I love the looks, but I am personally on the fence .... as its quite a departure for me I don't normally do skirts as I have no waist after having the children.

FM40 STYLE | MY MATCHESFASHION SALE EDIT




CLICK TO SHOP



The sales continue and so do my edits and today is the turn of Matchesfashion

Matchesfashion have just released the first of their markdowns and the highlights for me are the See By Chloe dresses...this one that the lovely Monika wore in Ibiza recently and who looked simply fabulous for a hot Ibizian evening. This dress and this are also very pretty and size availability is still good!

You know I still love my Cecilie Copenhagen pieces and this top is very cute. 

However, I have to say the star buys in the Matches sale are the Golden Goose Trainers. If you have very small or large feet you have a lot of choice .... lucky you! For the popular sizes (4-6) the choice is slightly limited, but these are available in most sizes ... a real bargain!!!! They are the comfiest things I have ever worn on my feet. 

Don't forget to check my full edit below as there are a few other good buys, including some lovely beachwear I featured in my summer holiday capsule wardrobe series.

FM40 STYLE | MY NET-A-PORTER SALE EDIT



C L I C K  T O  S H O P


The sales have started and my first edit will be from Net - A - Porter 

I have done the hard work for you and picked a few things from the designers I have featured in my summer holiday capsule wardrobe series. 

Firstly, I headed straight to Love Shack Fancy to see what was reduced there, this, this and this all are beautiful dresses worth investing in. That Larissa maxi is just divine! It can be worn on holiday with sandals, to an evening event with heels and styled with a leather biker for a rock chic look come autumn. 

Premium swimwear brands are worth looking at and this swimsuit would be a classic purchase. 

The gorgeous Kayu baskets and clutches are now high street prices, love this one!

If you have a wedding to attend this summer and this dress would be perfect or this one from Maje. Also, this dress would be fabulous to stash away for the Christmas party season .... a total bargain!
