Saturday 20.08.


Back to work today and feeling very tired after a busy few days and a sleepless night last night!
As I was feeling a bit bleuch when I got up, I decided that it was a day for a new Autumn style that came into the shop last week.

I love the loose floaty nature of the tunic and I am in love with the rich colour. I think that it works very well with the black leggings. And the wedges are just perfect - it was clearly meant to all be worn together!

I hope that you all have fabulous plans for the weekend?

We have no plans for this evening (which is so welcome after being up from 3am-5am). It will be a walk with the dog, bath the baby, bed the baby down and chill on the sofa for an hour before heading to bed for an early night!!

Sunday we are heading to our friends BBQ (think it could be one of the last this Summer). They have a boy the same age as Miss O so it will be a late afternoon/early evening type thing. I am looking forward to it.

Today's look is:

Tunic - Vila @ i am.....
Legging - Forever 21
Shoes - Faith

This t-shirt was one of those - it is so cheap I can not buy it - purchases!! I saw it on the clearance rack in Target in March and it was down to $2. My thinking at the time was it will do under clothes come the winter!
About 2 days after purchasing the t-shirt I saw this skirt in Forever 21 and I knew that I had been meant to buy the t-shirt!!

I love this outfit, but for some reason I seem to over look the it. I feel great when I wear it. I must move it to the front of the wardrobe to remind me to wear it again soon - before it is tights weather!!!

Wednesday's look was:

Skirt - Forever 21

Tuesday 16.08.


It started out pretty miserable here so I opted for leggings with this dress as I had a few errands to run before work. It has since dried up and got slightly brighter!! However, I do like this look with the wet look/animal print leggings!!

The dress that I have on today is part of the Autumn collection from Blend. We have this style coming into stock (soon hopefully). My agent very kindly let me have this (the sample) a few months ago.
I am looking forward to wearing it with some black tights and possibly a blazer!

Today's look is:

Dress - Blend (soon to be in stock at i am.....)
Leggings - Blend
Necklace - Ann Taylor Loft
Shoes - Faith

Monday 15.08.


After a busy weekend which included a quick trip to Manchester (4 hours drive away) and a tummy bug........
I am in work today and not feeling my best. I kind of think that my outfit reflects that a bit. It is basic, it is smart but it is safe and easy.

I love star prints and when I saw Anne Hathaway on the cover of Marie Claire wearing a star print top it reminded me that I too have a star print top. I like this top, but I know that I would like it more if it was a tad looser at the hem and did not have the ruffles.

In work I have been neglecting the i am..... online store. I kind of got to that stage in the season where I was ready for the sale and I just seemed to loose the love for the site. Also around this time we launched which sells cloth nappies and other baby items and I have been caught up in tweeting and facebooking to promote this.

However, I have spent the morning photographing the latest styles to be delivered in store here and they will be getting added to this week. I will also be back tweeting from the @iamboutique account too.

Today's look is:

Skinny Jeans - Primark
Cami - Primark
Top- Red Herring
Shoes - Primark

Wednesday 10.08.


These dresses arrived in the shop when I was working the day before and as soon as I saw this gorgeous olive/khaki shade I knew that one was going home with me.

This dress is so comfortable to wear and I felt so smart in it. I do not think I will get much chance to wear it bare legged as our summer seems to be in hiding. But I will be packing it for our trip to Orlando in November. I think it will look rather cute with gold flip flops and an across the body bag.

Wednesday's look was:

Dress - Vila
Cardigan - Forever 21
Necklace - Bakers
Wedges - Next

Tuesday 09.08.


I snapped this picture, then had a busy day with no time to blog. I then had a mixed up week as my days at work were changed. This morning I remembered that I had taken this but not yet blogged.

My look for last Tuesday was casual. My mood was casual and I knew that I had lots to do in the shop, so I dressed in a manner that suited being in the window display and changing old light bulbs!

Tuesday's look was:

Grey Skinny Jeans - Old Navy
White Cami - Vila
Grey Jewel Pocket Jumper - H&M
Shoes - American Eagle

Happy weekend!!

We have nice but kind of busy weekend planned. I am working today, then we have very little planned for tonight. I am thinking nice dinner and then either movie or TV catch up!!
Sunday we have the usual family stuff of food shopping in the morning (I shall be stocking up on ingredients to make a yummy all day breakfast omelet - it is our new favourite brunch) then in the afternoon we are taking part in a fundraising walk. Little Miss O has a cousin that is battling Neuroblastoma - so we are taking part to raise funds and awareness!

Orange is hands down the colour that I love the most! My sister gave me this top for my birthday and I love it. I love how bright pink and orange look together. I do also love the over sized vest over a pair of skinny jeans! To me they are just perfect to wear to work on a sticky Saturday!

Today's look is:

Skinny Jeans - Vila
Top - River Island
Sandals - Gap
Necklace - Primark

Tuesday 02.08.


Oh dear it appears that it has been a month since I last posted. I truly am sorry. I do not mean to be such a slack blogger, I honestly do not. But life is just so busy at the moment.

I have been lusting after a pair of brightly coloured trousers for a few weeks now and I got them yesterday when I was on a girlie shopping day with Miss O, my mum and my two sisters. I managed to get exactly what I have been looking for in Primark ( perfect price to pay for something that may not be worn for too long).

I used to have the most fabulous pair of bright orange jeans from Benetton - oh how I regret binning them!! I am sure that they would not have fitted me now anyway - if they had I am sure the style would have been way off for me now!

Today's look is:

Trousers - Primark
Top - Primark
Scarf - Vila
Blazer - H&M
Sandals - Gap
