The £8 T-Shirt for day to night



I popped into Primark yesterday with my daughter as she loves to spend her pocket money in there, she just gets so many little things to play around with. I think she spent £10 and came away with a choker, a pack of 5 rings, a sports top, a makeup box with drawers and a t-shirt! Its just so good for little girls.

Obviously mummy had a little look too and I found this t-shirt with a net hem for £8. Its a nice stretchy cotton and there are 2 layers of net, I could see this straight away with heels and a leather jacket for a night out.

I have styled it 3 different ways and I love them all, its such a good day to night top.


Here I’ve styled it with my favourite white converse, Zara jeans and an H&M jacket. Perfect for school runs and food shopping, which I seem to do all the time!


The next look I’ve styled it with my strappy pumps, Rag and Bone jeans and a quirky little handbag from Next, this look is perfect for Saturday shopping and lunch out with friends.



The next look below is one of my favourites as the t-shirt just sets off the outfit, the way it hangs below the fitted jacket is so feminine. I’ve paired it with Zara smart trousers, H&M fitted jacket, Christian Louboutin Pigalle’s and my gorgeous Lisa Bea clutch. This is perfect for a night out for cocktails and dinner.

The bonus is its only £8 and you can wear it so many different ways, and the hubby loves it too!


Have a lovely evening, Joanna xxx

My Top Ten Zara Dresses


If you are looking for a dress for spring, summer holidays or an occasion, Zara is your go to. With a great choice of florals, embroidery and frills there is something for everyone. Now that the weather is turning and we can shed a few layers we can start wearing some of these pretty dresses. Some of these dresses will also look great with tights and boots until its a little warmer.


This one I’m wearing is the Polka dot frill sleeve dress which is a lovely material, its heavier than you would expect which makes it hang nice on the body. It sits just above the knee, I’m wearing it with tights and ankle boots but paired with a nice leather jacket and white trainers I think it would be very cool. This would also make a great christening dress paired with strappy black sandals and a clutch.

Trench? Parka? or Mac?



Its the jacket for taking you into spring. Trench coats are the stylish way to keep you warm, its the one piece of clothing that has always been classy and provides a refined look. Beige, black, khaki, fitted or oversized it will always remain a wardrobe staple. The Mac is timeless and chic, a true wardrobe hero. Choose a bright colour for fun or look for quirky details and zips. The Parka is never out of fashion and always in style, its your cool weather essential.



Whatever you choose invest in a good one that will last. I have had a look around and attached some of my favourites. The khaki one I’m wearing (above) is just new in from Next and I loved it as soon as I put on, the detail on the sleeves was what caught my eye. The sleeves are shorter than normal stopping half way up your arm which is great for all the flared sleeve tops around as you can show them off in this jacket. There is also a little bow and gathered detail and its a good quality silky material, it looks an expensive jacket (see below)


I’ve linked all the different styles that I like below. Have a great weekend.

The Poncho


The Poncho or cape as some people call them, are such a great item of clothing for that in-between winter and spring weather. Its great to throw on over a shirt if its not too cold or a jumper for that extra warmth if you don’t want to wear a coat. It can be dressed up or down just by coordinating different accessories. Style with a shirt, jeans and boots (like above) for a smart casual look or black denim and pumps for a classic style.


I’ve included a few photos of this pink pearl detail poncho that also looks great with blue jeans and white trainers (see below photos) which is perfect for the school run or shopping, and of course its pink which is the best colour to be seen in right now!

If you like this one I’m wearing its from Mandy’s Heaven its super soft and feels great quality, down one side is a row of pearls that you can undo and wear as a scarf (bonus) it sits perfectly over my white shirt its a great wardrobe piece. You can purchase this poncho or anything else from their website which I’ve linked below and if you use my code LOVESTYLE1901 you will receive a 20% discount on your first purchase!

The flower detail shirt


I love all the different detailed shirts and blouses in the shops just now, gone are the days of a plain shirt and jeans, with florals and embroidery taking over your wardrobe. Its one of the easiest things to throw on for the school run without making too much of an effort. I bought this black shirt with floral embroidery detail on the back from New Look and I love it, it also comes in dusky pink and khaki green.

Hopefully the weather will be getting a little milder and we can maybe take off a layer and embrace the shirt. I would actually wear this one with a pink or black t-shirt underneath and left open for a more casual look. I have my eye on a lovely gingham floral shirt from Zara too, it would look great with white jeans and trainers.

Check out my favourites below and embrace the flower!


Dusky pink floral back shirt £29.99


Rose embroidery shirt £35


Floral crinkle shirt £45


Gingham floral shirt £29.99

My Top 10 Loafer picks


I have just picked up a lovely pair of loafers (see above picture) in Office Shoes and they could be mistaken for a very fancy Gucci pair.

This loafer style shoe was traditionally worn only by men as casual and business footwear. In recent years the style has been revamped and worn by women. They can be dressed up or down and will give a masculine edge to your wardrobe. With a pair of smart tailored trousers and blouse you will look catwalk ready. You can turn the preppy style on its head by pairing it with ripped skinny jeans and a leather jacket for an edgier look. With a pencil skirt or classic coat, look for loafer styles with an edge, like tassels or embellishment. There are hundreds of amazing designs which feature tassels, chains, embroidery and different animal prints. There are also some beautiful backless loafers too, and don’t get me wrong I love them on other people but I just cant get away with these and I have tried them on numerous times with different outfits (lots of hours spent humming and harring)  I have also found myself buying more flat shoes/boots as I find the styles are so quirky and stylish that you don’t need to walk around in heels all day to look good.

So I’m going to show you my top 10 below (backless included) that I think will take you through to spring and all under £69…Happy Shopping 😉
