May Review.

Hi there my friends.
How's your weekend gone?
Here in the UK we've had a wonderful 4 day bank holiday weekend with lots of celebrations for the Queens Platinum Jubilee.  You can read about my experiences with the Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilee in last Thursday's post.
June has arrived for us all, and rather than Flaming June we've definitely got cold and wet June - doesn't sound too good does it!  It also means it's time for a recap of last month's outfits, do stay and read about my May Review post.X

I was delighted to receive these sandals from Moshulu at the beginning of May, I had hoped to wear them more often over the past month and I have to admit to doing my best and donning them at every opportunity, but when It's so cold and raining I had to draw the line and wear shoes a tad warmer and more covered in.  Come the end of the month I'll be strutting my stuff in Majorca so you can be sure they'll be joining me there!

Isn't it just the best feeling when you find a dress to wear for a fancy wedding?  That's what I found when I chose this gifted piece from Izabel London.   Everything just fell into place with this beauty from Izabel London and I couldn't wait to checkout their site for another beautiful dress to wear for the second wedding I was invited to this year - you can see what I picked below. 🠟  I have a third invite for a wedding in July so stay tuned to find out what I picked in the next few months!

I share my exam result with you next, I was thrilled with the score for my attempt at various ballet dances, you can read all about them along with a cute Bardot style dress over on the 12th May!

I mentioned it above and here it is!  I'm so chuffed with this pleated beauty I found on the Izabel site.  Well it's got all my favourites wrapped up in this beautiful dress.  Pleates, long sleeves, silky fabric, midi length and the most stunning shade of pink and white - I had the perfect shoes to match it too!
Do stop by to read all about my glamorous wedding guest dress. 💗

One for my holiday I think!  This is going to go down well on all my future trips as it's easy to style, matches with so much and travels well.  Are you a lover of the white cotton dress?  If you stop back to the post, you can see the link to my reel featuring a handful of styles - do tell me which one is your favourite. x

You found me in London on the River Thames next.  I was watching my son compete in the Thames Barge Race and I'd love you to read all about on my blog post featuring this cool crisp shirt from Zara, jeans and comfortable trainers.

Another beautiful dress on the blog next and this one is from Marks & Spencer.  I received this from the kids for my birthday and just marvel at the excellent choice they made - it's pretty cute isn't it!  Paired it with new mules and my fabulous pink bag - do stop by for all the details. x

I have to admit to this last outfit for the Style Not Age challenge has to be one of the best looks of the year!  Yellow and bright green is most certainly a look to get you noticed.  I would love to wear bold colours like this all of the time, do let me know what you think, is it something you'd wear?  

Thanks very much for stopping by the blog today, love having you here supporting me.
See you on Thursday for another Chic and Stylish link up party.
Bye for now. X
