Mother & Daughter Outfits: 80th Birthday Party

imageOn Sunday we went to a relative’s 80th birthday party and these were the outfits Lizzy and I wore, we quickly snapped these photos in front of my parents’ house before we headed to the party as we were running late. Please excuse the face she is pulling – she had raisins in her mouth! I actually didn’t intend to match our outfits but this is the only special occasion dress Lizzy has so I kind of had to dress her in it! It wasn’t quite warm enough to go sleeveless so I put a white cardigan over the dress. My pink lace top is so pretty and was only £4, it is see-through though so I have a vest on underneath. I love this floral midi pencil skirt and you can see how I styled it in another post here. My purple suede shoes are so old but I still really like them, I think they go perfectly with the skirt. I added my trusty leather biker jacket to add a bit of an edge. If you don’t own a black leather jacket, why not?! They are just so versatile.

I’m excited to be sharing my first ‘Baby Style’ post, I can’t believe I haven’t done this before! This was an outfit Lizzy wore last week, and it’s a typical everyday casual outfit, but still cute. It’s so difficult to get decent photos of Lizzy and these were the best I could get!

Nowadays when it comes to buying clothes for Lizzy or for myself I don’t spend half as much as I used to, since now I’m a SAHM, and I try to look for bargains whenever I can. This Jojo Mama Bebe floral blouse has really cute detailing and was purchased at a local sale for £3, the shoes I got on sale for half price and the leggings are a 2-pack from a Supermarket.

Blouse: Jojo Maman Bebe (Local sale) | Leggings: Asda | Shoes: Clarks | Socks: Asda | Hair bobble: Mothercare

Red Lips!

I am so obsessed with this shirt! And can you believe it only cost £3.99 (new), including postage, from Ebay?! I am so pleased with my bargain purchase that I’m definitely going to buy more clothes from Ebay from now on. It did take a couple of weeks to arrive from China but worth it and the quality is not too bad either.

I obviously had to wear red lipstick with this shirt, and my cute red lips clutch finished off my ‘Red Lips is Everything’ look! I didn’t want to be overkill so I wore my purple shoes and coincidentally my nails are purple too (well, lavender.) I like the contrast of red and purple together.

I wore this outfit today, minus the clutch though as Lizzy and I went to meet a friend for coffee and scones, yum!

Shirt: Ebay (just search ‘red lips shirt’, a few sellers have the exact same shirt) | Jeans: ASOS : Shoes: Old (love these pointy ones) | Clutch: Lulu Guinness (mine is discontinued but she has some other cute ones here) | Lipstick: Elizabeth Arden Red Door Red
