Last week it was the toddler who graced these pages in the latest collection from River Island and now it’s the turn of Yours Truly. While my penchant for a funky little dude of a son edges me towards fun, fashionable and on trend, I’ve gone for something a little different for myself with a classy navy number which leaves just a little to the imagination but still follows the boob or legs rule of keeping on the right side of the fashion rules and some dream beige patent boots for my top picks from the current collection.
I’ve got growing collection of dresses for all occasions but nothing which is anything like the style of this little ditty. The cross from neck line of this wrap dress isn’t too revealing and very flattering. But what really caught my eye when browsing was the thigh high split with an attached mid skirt. Plus the mid length sleeves makes it a little warmer than a strappy number. I’m a total wuss and feel the cold.
Next on my wants and needs list were some day-to-night boots which wouldn’t leave me unsteady on my feet. I have a good supply of knee-high boots but nothing which would look good with skinny jeans or faux leather leggings on both a shopping trip into town or evening down the pub.
These nude patent, mirror heeled Chelsea boots tick all the boxes and liven up my go-to all black combination outfits. The pièce de résistance however is I can stumble home at midnight without so much as a twisted ankle, Happy days!
They’re surprisingly super comfy too, and as a busy mum of a toddler , I can still maintain a little dip in the style stakes while chasing the lively one around!
