Saturday 29.01.11


I am in an awful mood today - I have had a rough few days and a clingy baby and sick puppy have not helped matters. It took me a while to get around to taking some pictures today and the ones that I have are not great - so I am sorry. However, a few hours ago I was not going to post as I was such a grump. But I made a deal (with myself) that I would blog when at work so here I am.

I am very sorry that I have the same trousers on again today. I love them very much and it is so nice to have a casual trouser that is not jeans. But I know that seeing them same things when I am only posting a few times a week is boring! I will try and do better!

We are all set to have a quiet weekend, no plans this evening other than watching "The Time Travellers Wife" and perhaps having a glass of wine. Not much planned for Sunday either, some food shopping as usual but not much else. Well I do have a craft project that I would like to get started but we shall see.

Have a lovely weekend - whatever you are up to.

Today's outfit is:

Skinny Cargo jeans - Vila @ i am.....
Cami - Primark
Blouse - Charlotte Russe
Cardigan - Abercrombie and Fitch
Shoes - Charlotte Russe

Today is Burns Night today (does not make a lot of sense but hey) and I am wearing a tartan blouse and it was not even meant!! I am wearing this blouse as I finally got to the bottom of my ironing basket at the weekend and this baby was in there! This was one of the difficult items that has not seen the light of day for about 2 years!! THE SHAME!!

I have to say that I am loving this look today! I just love how it all sort of came together without me having to try! The trousers are so fabulous and comfy and they are such a nice change from jeans! The blouse - well it is like it is new it has been so long since I wore it! And the cardigan is so cozy and comfy yet pull it all together!

Today's outfit is:

Skinny Cargo Jeans - Vila @ i am.....
Blouse - Gap
Cardigan - Republic
Boots - Faith

After my bust start to the week I have had 3 lovely days at home with my girl. It has been lovely we have not used the car we have pretty much stayed around the house other than to walk the dog. And yesterday we met some friends and had a walk, coffee and a baby play date.

Back to the grind today, it has been a funny day today. The weather is very damp and foggy, so there have not been lots and lots of people about, but it has still been a quick day. This morning was spent picturing and listing new styles to the site.

I just love the dress that I have on today - so I am sorry if you guys get bored to death with seeing me wear it! I went for black with it this time for a slight change!

Today's outfit is:

Dress - Vila @ i am.....
Tights - SkunkFunk
Scarf - Vila
Shoes Christian Louboutin
Necklace - Gift

I have kept my look simple today as I am tired and this morning was a bit of a rush. But black and cream is classic and I love this cardigan!

Today's look is:

Jeans - Primark
T-shirt - Primark
Cardigan - French Connection

First of all I want to apologise for the quality of the pictures on the blog at the moment. I am by no way a good photographer and I working with pretty bad light in the shop at the moment. I am however, not letting this put me off my blogging!

I am in the shop for a few hours this morning and then I am off to collect a birthday cake from the bakers and go home and get the house ready for a 30th birthday party (I mean drinks - I have been told it has not be like a kids party).

I went for comfort today as I have lots to do and do not plan on getting changed until the party. I love this jumper but I am not too sure about it with the grey leggings - I think it may be a bit too much grey! These leggings are the most comfortable pair that I have ever owned and they are fabulous quality. I got them in Banana Republic after Thanksgiving for $10.

Today's outfit is:

Jumper - French Connection
Leggings - Banana Republic
Boots - Target

Happy 30th Birthday to my other half, N!

It is a bit rubbish that I have to work today, but so does he so it is not such a big deal! I am taking him out for some dinner after work, I baked red velvet cupcakes last night and I have a bottle of champagne in the fridge for when O is in bed. So we should have a lovely evening!!

The trousers that I have on today came into stock yesterday! As soon as I opened the box I knew that I was taking a pair home with me. I spent a fair bit of the day yesterday planning how I was going to wear them.

They are very like the J Brand Skinny Cargo's that retail at £245!! The ones that we have in stock are by Vila and they retail at £40 - much more wallet friendly!! They are available in two colours here.
I already have another idea of how to wear these next week. And I can not wait to pair them with a cute pair of flat gladiator sandals in the Spring.

Today's outfit is:

Skinny Cargo Jeans - Vila @ i am.....
White T-shirt - Blend
Jumper - River Island
Boots - Forever 21
Jacket - Tesco

Tuesday 11.01.11


I did not get around to posting yesterday as it turned into one of those days. But it was one of those nice days! Three different friends popped in to say Hi and then my mum brought O and the dog in and I took O to the baby clinic to be weighed (it is just around the corner from the shop which is very handy).

I got this skirt in the summer sales to wear to a Christening, but this is the first time that I have paired with tights and a cardigan and I have to say the I did like the look!
The skirt is a nice shape, it has a zip right up the front which I think is a nice look and it has the most comfortable elastic waistband!!

Tuesday's outfit was:

Skirt - River Island
Top - Forever 21
Cardigan - American Eagle
Tights - Tesco (I noticed they had ripped at 10.30am)
Shoes - Nine West
Neclace - Primark

I am in the shop again today, so here I am blogging (sticking to my word and making a point of doing it when I am here). I have a few weeks of working 3 days so you lovelies can expect to see a bit more of me!! I am sure that you are all thrilled!?

The dress that I have on today is one of the newer styles that we have in i am..... It is a style that I look at as being season less or an in between piece. I love items like this as I can wear something underneath or a cardigan over for warmth.

I just adore the shape of this dress and even without the tights, boots and scarf I felt dressed as it just seemed to work so well. I especially love the skirt!

Today's outfit is:

Dress - Vila @ i am.....
Tights - Skunkfunk
Scarf - H&M
Boots - Armani Exchange

Friday 07.01.11


I had no Internet in the shop yesterday so I could not post my outfit pictures - and there is no time to do such things at home.

I got the inspiration for this outfit while I was reading a copy of Marie Claire. I was scanning the Hot Trends for 2011 section when I noticed that they made a mention to Ditsy Florals. I have had this dress since we were in Orlando in November but had yet to wear it. So while having a soak in the bath this outfit came to me and I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

On another note - this dress was a bargain. It was in the clearance section for $7.50 and there was then another 30% off the entire store. You have to love after Thanksgiving sales!!

Friday's outfit was:

Dress - Cotton On
Cardigan - S'Nob
Tights - Primark
Belt - Tesco
Boots - Nine West
Necklace - Forever 21

Happy New Year to you all! I hope that things have started out well for everyone and that 2011 brings you all that you wish for.

As I mentioned before I am going to make myself blog on the days that I am in work - so here we are! First day back at work and first blog post of 2011.

The festive break has been lovely, we as a family have spent lots of time together doing all kinds of fun stuff. But, it was so nice to get up this morning and get back into some sense of routine. I was really unsure of what outfits to get back to blogging with..... but now I have lots of ideas and I am looking forward to the coming working days!

This outfit is a pretty new one and I love it! The hat, shorts, cardigan and boots were all bought when we were in Orlando in November. The shorts are super comfy yet I feel very smart wearing them. I have been wanting a nice pair of smart grey boots for a while that are flat and these for me are perfect. The cardigan well I feel that it needs no explaining, it is not black and that is all that matters to me! The hat!! Well the hat I saw in Target and tried it on and danced around in front of Orla and she giggled and laughed, my mum then came around the corner and said how nice the hat was. I looked in the mirror and agreed, so in the trolley it went!

Today's outfit is:

Shorts - Cotton On
Blouse - Forever 21
Cardigan - J.Crew
Tights - Tesco
Boots - Nine West
Necklace - Forever 21
Scarf - Vila @ i am.....
Hat - Target
