Daywear Holiday Wish List

As you know I love to write my fashion posts when I get the chance to and I am very excited about this particular post.  Why?  Because it’s is a daywear holiday wish list and the mere thought of going away makes me excited.  Of course one cannot consider going on holiday with the correct attire it simply wouldn’t do.  This time my search on the net took me to a company called Love the Sales.  What attracted me to the site?  The dresses (we all know I have a love affair with dresses) the decision was made, my focus site for the post had been found.  How simple was that!!  Love the sales is a great site that is perfect for shopaholics as they find all the sales from 500 of the biggest UK retailers and put them all on one website saving us not just money but also time.  Lovethesales displays clothing from various sites with their sales items including; Ted Baker sale, Phase Eight sale, Tommy Hilfiger sale, Hugo Boss sale and Ralph Lauren sale to name but a few.  I was excited to see that you can get sale alerts specific for your size!

In this post I shall try my hardest to select a mix of items and not just dresses to share with you, wish me luck!

Ok, so luck wasn’t really needed.  Quite honestly I could have easily just copied and pasted the majority of this site onto my blog but I don’t think that’s allowed.  Maybe a revisit post with a different topic may be required further down the line.

So what are my top holiday daywear items from Love the Sales?

I’m going to work from the head down so first up a hat.


This floppy hat from Accessorize is now selling at £10.50.

This hat also attracted my attention available from Accessorize and on sale at £17.50.


Although I am fully aware the best colour to wear for hot climates is white these black hats really do appeal.  They are feminine and pretty and look simply fabulous on!  (You can’t argue with that.)

Working down from there no self respecting intelligent woman would be caught dead in a sunny climate without eye protection and these Max Mara sunglasses are just want we all need.


The style and colour will suit all face shapes and hair colours.  These sunglasses are just so pretty I know you won’t be able to resist.  You can also save a massive 40% off the price as these are now down to £126, not bad for a beautiful pair of sunglasses that you will want to live in all summer long.

Now for the dresses!!!!!!!!

I have tried my best to not overdo it.  My advise though would be do not EVER give me your card and send me to this site unless I am personal shopping for you as I may max out your card.  With so many fabulous dresses to chose from you could be forgiven for spending a day just browsing the site.  Here are my favourite 3, no 4 make that 5 dresses.


(1) Nautical Stripe Sundress Navy/White (ASOS) 59% off now £19.50

I fell in love with this dress the second I saw it.  The v neckline flatters and the light weight material makes it great for daywear although it is labelled on the site as an evening dress.  Hey why not break free and rebel a little.  I could see myself wearing this on holiday with some cute sandals and a handbag to complement the outfit.

(2) D-G Twist Neck Sundress (Figleaves) 60% off now £16.00

What an adorable dress.  The description says it is designed to flatter!  They’re not wrong, the dress hangs rather than clings and the colour is perfect for the summer and it will look great with a tan (from a bottle only as we know natural tans are a sign of skin damage).

(3) Denim & Supply – V-Neck Sun Cap Sleeve Dress (Very) 25% off now £90

I love the deep v neck, cut and overall style of the dress giving the wearer a fun, feminine look.  This is perfect for everyday wear and to compete the ensemble a pretty pair of sandals.

(4) Rosalie Maxi Dress Vert (Zalando) 20% off now £26.00

What a beautiful colour to start with, this lovely flowing dress again covers well to flatter the figure.  This maxi dress is perfect for a comfortable yet feminine look.  Again a pretty pair of sandals or even wedges would complement the outfit.

(5) Broderie Anglaise Sun Dress – Cream (ASOS) 36% off now £35

Simple, feminine and comfortable, the perfect combination for a day dress that is a great colour to reflect the heat whilst looking beautiful and stylish.


We can’t forget the bags, this Spikes & Sparrow from Zalando is a beauty and is has 20% the original price making it £115.99.


The bag is a great size to keep all essentials but it’s not too large to carry around either.  It’s the perfect day bag and looks great with a range of outfits.

Last but not least the sandals.  I’m going to be honest and say I got distracted.  When I was looking for shoes to feature an hour just vanished like magic, I wonder what happened there.  I was amazed at the number of shoes listed, my goodness there are so many to chose from you are literally spoilt for choice.


I managed to get my choices down to just 4 from about 20.  These were my favourites.

(1) Dolla Leather Sandal (Guess) 30% off now £91.00

The sole allows for the size of the heel so even though they add height to the wearer they do not overly stretch the arch of the foot making them easier to walk in.  The style is one of sophistication perfect for the girly girls among us and simply stunning.

(2) Walker Romatic (Sarenza) 20% off now £43.00

Lovely everyday summer shoes that will suit most outfits.  I love the cross over at the front these are a wardrobe staple for the summer.

(3) Red Capri Sandals (Schuh) 83% off now £27.99

Although they barely add height I love the pretty feminine design of these sandals to allow for daily comfort over the summer.

(4) Safiya Soft Knot Platform Sandal 30% off now £34.30

I love these cute, comfortable looking sandals.  These are the soft of sandal you get in a few colours as they are a must have looking great with almost anything.

All the sandals chosen would look great with dresses, jeans and shorts.  I loved the range and there are some great bargains to be found in a range of sizes.  The Lovethesales website made my holiday wishlist simple to put together so now I know where I can get some lovely clothes if I go away.

Why not take a look and see for yourself.

Sophisticated Ladies Christmas Jumpers for 2015

Wow it’s 45 days until Christmas.  How exciting!!!  It might seem like ages away but now is the time to get that Christmas shopping started if you haven’t already.  Christmas jumpers appear to be getting popular although to be honest you wouldn’t catch me dead in one.  With that said I thought it might be nice to help those that want to track down a great Christmas jumper to save them the leg work (aren’t I lovely) so here are my top 10 Christmas jumpers available for ladies.

I wasn’t expecting to say this but I take it back, not all Christmas jumpers that came up on my search were excessively garish.  With that in mind I have decided to make this post about the more sophisticated Christmas jumpers for ladies available to buy in in 2015.  I could actually see myself wearing some of them like this Emmy Santa’s Coming Christmas jumper from Boohoo, who doesn’t like the film Elf and what a great idea for a jumper and a bargain at only £15.

Ladies christmas jumper 1This simple John Lewis star jumper gives off that Christmassy vibe perfectly when worn at Christmas yet you could wear it anytime of year thanks to the great design that doesn’t exclude it from general wear.  A bit pricier at £49 but this isn’t just seasonal wear.

Ladies Christmas jumper 2Next up this cute long jumper from George, it’s festive yet simply adorable and well worth £16.

Ladies Christmas jumper 3This ASOS Christmas jumper with embellished snowflake is very pretty and looks really warm too.  An inbetweener pricewise at £38.

Ladies Christmas jumper 4Also from ASOS this star embellished dress is another flexible piece that can be worn throughout the year and is therefore a bargain at £45.  Ok, so it’s not a jumper but it can be worn as one.

Ladies Christmas jumper 5This jumper found at both Littlewoods and Very for £25 looks great and works well with jeans and leggings.

Ladies Christmas jumper 7I’m sneaking in another dress which looks great as a dress.  This piece that can be found at both Littlewoods and Very for £35 is guaranteed to sell out fast so you had better grab one soon!

Ladies Christmas jumper 6This Christmassy yet very understated jumper from ASOS is only £22 and combined with some leggings or dark skinny jeans and a bit of sparkle this has the potential to be part of a great outfit.  I love the colour of it and the cute bows give it that hint that it’s a Christmassy jumper but don’t scream it’s Christmas!!!!

Ladies Christmas jumper 8This jumper dress priced at £20 from prettylittlething gives you the option of wearing it as either.  With a festive colour and message this can be worn with long boots or with bootcut jeans or leggings.

Ladies Christmas jumper 9Last but not least this knitted jumper with a faux fur trimmed hood from Lipsy priced at £38.  Feminine and warm it’s the perfect thing to weather on a cold winters day.

Ladies Christmas jumper 10I hope you all liked my jumper / dress (lol, I couldn’t help myself) choices.  I am so impressed by what I found that I may be getting some of these myself.

Happy shopping.
