This season, it’s all about tie ups, twists and cut outs… ground these proportions with solid and unwavering colours and prints and we’re talking…

The great thing about this tie-front shirt dress, is it’s versatility.   I really encourage you to choose wardrobe pieces that you can take into the next season.    It’s perfect layered for winter as seen here over jeans and beneath a knit, and it’s going to look great in summer with sandals over a bikini too.   This gives you options which we love.    The black and white check is also a winner and will generally withstand the fashion cycles as they come and go.   I guarantee you could pull this piece out in 10 years time and it will still be awesome.   Tie up pieces are really on trend and add such a great focal point to the outfit.

Now, have you added a bucket bag to your wardrobe as yet?   This Mon Purse bag is a real sweetie.   I have been searching for a beautiful, rich, buttery coloured bag for a while and wanted to add the bucket style to my collection.   I love how it comes with it’s own little matching wallet and personalised monogram.   It’s these little details that make a purchase all the more meaningful and will be one of the things you can treasure for years to come.

On a more personal note, I have a huge week this week.   As most of you know, it’s been a really consuming few years with having both my younger babies so close together.    There has been a limit as to how much I have been able to commit to with my blog.   However, I am taking on a few more projects  now which I am really excited about.   I am also finding more time to write which I love and really looking forward to sharing all the ins and outs of my world with you (ha have you been checking out my @fifideluxeblog Insta Stories lately?   Although I feel the pressure mounting with the enormity of the tasks I have in place each day, I am determined to keep calm and enjoy every moment of my life.   It feels good to be coming out on the other side… This is it girls xx
