FM40 STYLE | & OTHER STORIES OF THE GUCCI LOAFER

Image Via

Ahh the Gucci loafer .... I trend I didn't go mad for last year ... mainly because I had sold, given away many Gucci pieces on Ebay from the early 2000s and I didn't want to be Gucci (mad) again .... so I told myself don't do it, but the main reason was I couldn't really afford to splash out on a pair. 

I looked at the high street replicas and yes some were really good, but nothing tempted me other than the real thing. Until these, which have to be the best I have seen other than the real thing ....that good that they are only available in limited sizes. 


Whilst looking at & Other Stories I was tempted by a few other things, including this grey coat, in fact they have many gorgeous coats including this fabulous Isabel Marant(ish) one. I love this velvet wrap dress too (so regret not getting either of the Isabel Marant Etoile or Masscob black velvet wrap dresses last Christmas) so this one is really tempting me. My full edit is below which includes lots of knitwear, boots and on-trend print dresses.

FM40 STYLE | MY BIRTHDAY OUTFIT


Leather Jacket - BAUKJEN | Trousers - ZARA | Blouse - MAISON BRUNET | Handbag - CHANEL | Shoes - ISABEL MARANT (Similar here

Another year brings me to celebrate my 45th birthday and it is always double celebrations as I share my birthday with my daughter who is, 5. 

If I am honest I am feeling slightly a mean mummy as I am not doing her a full blown party as such ..... I didn't want to put myself under pressure starting a new school and handing out invites to her new little class friends with such short notice #BADMUMMY . I have promised her a big party when she is six ..... god help me!! 

So, we started our day with gold crowns 👑 (L not me) and fairy cakes for breakfast and we are going to have our birthday tea out at our favourite local Italian restaurant with loved ones.

What I am planning to wear this evening?  Well a girl should have something new for her birthday and I am going to wear my new black trousers from Zara, teamed with my new blouse from Maison Brunet Paris which I am totally in love with! It was my first time ordering from Maison Brunet and I was super impressed how quickly I received my blouse and how nicely packaged it was, plus the added bonus of a complementary cute cotton tote. If you like the French girl look, then you should check out Maison Brunet they have some really lovely stuff. 

The blouse is so pretty and perfect for laying under cosy cardigans and little jackets in the autumn/winter. If you are looking for something similar this one from River Island is equally nice. 

I then plan to accessorise the outfit with my Isabel Marant Leopard pealman shoes from a few seasons back .... leopard accessories always jazz up a monochrome outfit. My shoes are sadly no longer available, but Boden always do fabulous leopard heels

Anyway signing off as I have cake and bubbles to consume.

FM40 STYLE | YOUR AUTUMN/WINTER CAPSULE WARDROBE - PART 4


T H E  M U S T  H A V E  I T E M 

One 'must have' piece of clothing has to be  .... a black pair of pants or trousers whichever you wish to call them .... I am a pants girl myself. 

My black pants needed a refresh ..... my old pair from Banana Republic had served me very well more than a few years and were on their last legs ...literally! Anyway, while I was shopping last week I thought I would try to find a new pair as come A/W black pants are a hard-working piece of clothing in my wardrobe. 

B L A C K  P A N T S 

I like to wear them with flats like above, with trainers 


and ankle boots 


My budget was a high street budget, so I headed straight to Zara for a try on and I ended up buying these. I was initially looking for a cropped pair, but I liked the fit of this pair and I am just going to get them shortened slightly. 

Black pants are so versatile, they can take you from the school gate, to the boardroom and then for cocktails with ease .... just with a change of shoe. 


SHOP BLACK TROUSER EDIT 







I am hoping my new trousers will be ready for Friday to wear with my Isabel Marant black leather jacket and leopard heels for L's and my birthday tea out, I am going to try to emulate this look below.
