FM40 STYLE | RAIN ...... PRACTICAL MUM COATS




OK, this was something I didn't really want to spend my money on, but practically won over and I much needed a coat to walk the dog in (don't really want to wear my expensive Moncler and Woolwich Parka for such) and for wet school run mornings.

I searched for ages as I didn't really want just a walking outdoor coat, but something I could wear daily. I contemplated getting a Barbour, which seems a bit silly as I sold the two I did have 3 years ago on eBay. I then looked at Joules and this one really caught my eye, it must have also caught the eye of another mum from my little boys class, so with not wanting to be like one of the dolly sisters I discounted it ...... It is a lovely coat however, gorgeous colour, modern parka style with a useful big hood!

I went back to the drawing board and started to look at the brand Ilse Jacobsen, I knew the lovely Kat wears some of their coats and boots and they passed her rugby mum challenge. I decided to opt for the 3/4 raincoat in navy. I worn it all weekend and it survived a downpour at rugby on Sunday morning. The hood was big enough and it was totally waterproof ...... I was also warm with the snug fleece lining inside, I do think come the colder winter months I will get a thin down gilet to pop underneath, such as one like this.

I am totally happy with my purchase ..... here are some of the others that were in the running.

FM40 STYLE | BRETON AND TULLE HEAVEN



By now you must realise I like a breton and when I find a breton with tulle polka dot my heart skips a beat. J Crew I love you! 
Dress it up like above or wear with luxe velvet slip on trainers (love these) and a tote for everyday (such as this one from By Malene Birger, which reminds me so much of the gorgeous, but very expensive Goyard totes).

FM40 STYLE | TWO TONE STYLE

Image - Via

I have been personally wearing my Russell and Bromley two tone camel and black ballet pumps a lot recently and yes I would love to upgrade to a pair of Chanel's if pennies were in abundance, but sadly not.  

The high street on the other hand have some great affordable two tone shoes available that I may succumb too.

Have any of you tried any of the high street versions or the Jessica Burma ones I featured awhile ago?

FM40 STYLE | LA REDOUTE BIG EVENT 40% OFF

I have recently fallen in love with La Redoute and I have found some lovely usual things, with that air of French sophistication we like. The website is big, but once you get to know the brands that have the best pieces, your search will become easier. I am very fond of Mademoiselle r and R Studio. The good news is that at present they have a 40% off Event and I have made the job very easy for you and done the hard work and picked out the best pieces (in my opinion).




I am loving that gingham check shirt and that Instagram favourite Merci Beau Coup Tee. Also, how great is the Cecilie Copenhagen look-a-like scarf print top here. Also, the major brands are included in the discount and I have just ordered a pair of my favourite wellies for N, Aigel Lolly Pop Wellies which are only £15 after the reduction and I have also treated L to some new bedding I spotted on Edit 58 and Little Spree's Instagram feeds ...... The Am.Pm patati pom pom bedding range.

I believe the 40% off Event is on until the 23rd of September.

FM40 STYLE | J CREW SAMMIE CHINO PANTS


There is  another item I would like to add to my wish list ...... J Crew Sammie cropped chinos ...... 

I have khaki linen chinos from Topshop .. but I am not totally happy in them, I feel quite scruffy in them after wearing them for one hour ....as they go slightly baggy. I really like the look of these J Crew ones because of their more tailored style and the kicked cropped length.

Green khaki trousers can be so versatile ...... worn on the school run with stripes and denim with either trainers or leopard flats. Then, they can look amazing on a night out with a black statement blouse (my Wraplondon Rochana blouse would look perfect with them) and barley there heeled black sandals ..... 







Do you have khaki trousers that you love?

FM40 STYLE | MILLIE'S LEOPARD DRESS ......


1 | 2 | 3 | 4

OK are we all just loving Erica Davies Instagram at the moment, the fabulous interiors, the beautiful pictures of France and not forgetting the fashion ......... she has me addicted to looking on  La Redoute and Asos, because she just seems to find wonderful dresses and midi skirts from those websites.

Like the above dress from the Millie Mackintosh Collection..... If my social life involved more 'going out, out', then this would be purchased  ..... However, I am thinking it would work as a Christmas Day dress ( ..... sorry I have mentioned the C word and it's only September). I cannot stop thinking about it ...... Also, I think I need a pair of black nearly there high heel sandals ..... Office have two nice pairs, the pair above and these (I like the bow detail on them) ....... more things to add to the wish list!

The dress is fabulous isn't it ....... available at Asos and Millie Mackintosh's own website.

Have a lovely weekend.
