Hankies at the Ready…

I do like to find a piece of clothing that has something about it thats a bit different – a detail, a print or a cut. Style is about finding your voice and the clothes you pick are a great way to do that.

I found this dress by chance when popping into the George clothing section in Asda a few weeks ago. It was crammed on the sale area, all on its own between jumpers and jeans just asking to be looked at. It didn’t look that much in the hanger but I loved its hemline – it was so unusual with it handkerchief hem I just had to try it on. It was a size bigger than I usually buy but I often size up with George and wanted a kind of boho looser fit which when I tried it on it was. And the price? Just £10!

It had a matching tie belt but to make it look more premium I replaced that with a dark silver belt and matching ankle boots. And due to always feeling cold I added a roll neck bodysuit (great if you want to layer without lumps and bumps under your clothes)

Its the hem that makes this dress though. Unusual without being too quirky its one of those items you can dress up or down, layer up in cold weather. Plus for women over 40 like me – it has long sleeves – always a winner.

I absolutely love this item and am so glad I found it…isn’t it funny that sometimes the random things you chance upon become favourites? I probably wouldn’t of looked twice at this if I’d of seen it in a magazine. Its sold out online but have a look in your nearest store – I’ve seen them in a few stores since and it been reduced to £7 – thats practically a steal!

The thing I fell in love with this week

Initial cushions £5 each via George Home

They are smaller style cushions – on the website they are described as 30cm x 30cm but are smaller in reality. I’d say more like 20cm x 20cm but very plump. I have to say though, I liked them even more smaller as they dont look too over the top style-wise.

The quality of these cushions are great – I was expecting a printed design but the fronts are a type of needlepoint with plain backs and removable inners so they can be washed.

And here they are! One for Sarah and one for Russ – as you can see I sleep on the left side of the bed 😉Find the whole range here – as well as A- Z there are numbers, a heart, hashtags, ampersands and a question mark!  

I’ve not seen these in store (I would imagine thats because theres so many different versions to display) but you can order them in to any local Asda store with a click and collect service for free to save on delivery charges.

Do you love these too? Look out for more things I’ve fallen in love with coming soon…
