Vintage Versace 💕

Well Good Afternoon.

How are we all doing? I can’t quite believe we are nearing the end of September already!  Where does the time go!

So its been all go here! Last weekend we had the most wonderful weekend at Braxted Park in Essex for a family wedding!

Was such a wonderful venue!

They were so lucky with the weather, it was really beautiful day! I have to say I had been wondering what to wear for a while. As it was a wedding I wanted something easy yet stylish as it was going to be a long day! My mums wardrobe from the 90’s was out of this world and I knew she had a Versace dress in the loft that I had worn before. So it was time to dust it off and give it another spin!

Remember  Liz Hurley had that look back in the 90’s? I always remember thinking how fab she looked and super chic!

Mine wasn’t quite as reveling as this gorgeous dress! So i knew this was the one to go with! (i do have a similar Versace dress to this with the pins but have never worn it could be time to show that one off soon, i’d better get down the gym)
I went out and bought the matching earrings as well as the hair slides!
This really is one of my favorite dresses ever!

My darling boys had the best time at our friends and was truly spoilt as always, so a huge thank you to them x.

I think it’s so important to wear something you feel and look comfy in! If its going to be a long day always remember this , don’t wear anything to tight or clingy that you will constantly be pulling down or fidgeting with! Remember weddings , party’s are an excuse to wear something you don’t wear every day! That’s why i always go way out!

Speaking of Vintage, yesterday we dined at Pier Luiges in Beckenham.  It was very yummy as usual!  I wore a vintage Karen Millen skirt! It was actually a dress but i had it made into a skirt!

I have had this since i was about 21 and its still going strong! Boys are wearing (tops and shorts by Next , although the shorts were actually school trousers and i had them made into shorts as i couldn’t find any i liked and i like the cut of the next trousers,so don’t be put off if you cant find anything you like , make it your own)
Such beautiful colours, i just love it!

As my looks are vintage i have had a nose to try and find you some similar looks from the high street….

I found some cute sequin skirts by ASOS

So pretty, just love both!

I thought this dress by Vesper247 had a real Versace look about it too…

Stunning!

With Winter on its way i have also spotted some great new looks for you from ASOS

 

Rainbow Jumper, i think this is wonderful!
Love Love Love, i had a pair like this from Shellys years ago!
This has my name all over it! Love!
Get the Chanel look with this little number, pair this with a white fur for that runway style!
i ordered this in Cream, unfortunately if you have few lumps and bumps its not the most flattering and did nothing for me at all!

So guys short a sweet today.  I need to go a get the boys now and head off to the post office!

Have a wonderful Monday

My next post will be my holiday blog when i return from Barbados. Be sure to check that out !

Hello

I hope your all having a wonderful end to the summer holidays, is it me or has it flown by? I cant believe this time next week I will be getting the boys bits ready for back to school!

We have had a wonderful summer, we have caught up with lots of my lovely friends and chilled out in the sun. We were  at the coast at my parents over the weekend and the boys spent an hour in the sea on Sunday, it was like being abroad! Its so hot today I’m melting as im doing this blog , but loving it too!

Is anyone else thinking  about autumn and their winter wardrobe? Well I am and absolutely all over this 80/90’s come back! The Dynasty look is back and im loving it.  Its all puff , sleeves, over sized belts, earrings , chain belts you name it, if its ” OTT” then I’m on it! I even raided mums loft at the weekend to see what goodies I could find, when we lived in Spain , my mum had some amazing clothes and i was hoping to get my hands on some of them 😂😍

Claudia Schiffer looking chic in the 90s.
The 90s is back and i love it!

 

Im all over the puff sleeve look, I think this look is super chic and super stylish! Any woman who wears a Puff Sleeve will just feel so feminine I promise that!

I have spotted some fab high street looks for you, shown below….

Silk Fred:

I absolutely love this , so beautiful! Look at those sleeves Alexis Carrington eat your heart out!
Another gorgeous look by Silk Fred and you could wear this all year round , I think this would look especially divine with leather trousers!

Warehouse:

So beautiful, this would look fantastic with jeans or white shorts!
Or the stunning dress version!

 

ASOS:

ASOS does Zimmerman inspired so well! Love!
Going Chanel in this River Island top for ASOS

Zara also have gone for Zimmerman / Balmain looks for autumn and they are brilliant! I do love Zara but sometimes i begrudge buying as everyone walks around in the same clothes. I did however purchase this wonderful leather dress, although i am putting my own stamp on it of course!

 

Im going to change the neckline on it, as its so gorgeous and so soft!

Another chic style this autumn are these magnificent shoes by Prestige Boutique.

Wearing my New PB heels with these cute leather shorts by ASOS!
A real spice for your winter wardrobe with a real designer look!

Lets move on to accessories.  I have chosen my three favorites that we have to order to show you.

Shells , Pearls and Number 5 😍.

Shells are the look of the moment and im all over this set!

Order today

If Pearls are your thing , look at these stylish headbands.

Available to Order
Loving these earrings too , a real Chanel vibe!

So ladies , remember this autumn its all “OTT” So ” GO BIG” with all your looks!

I will keep you guided along the way and carry on sharing my best looks by Prestige Boutique and all my favorite brands!

Happy Shopping!  I’m cooking a roast dinner as we speak, yes i think im crazy too as its 32  here today but, I brought a wonderful Rib of Beef and it cant go waste lol!

Happy Tuesday

Good Evening

How are we all?

So are you all broken up already for the summer? We had a very busy last week at our school! As it was Lucca’s last year at his school, it was very emotional on all of us!

He certainly ended on a high too taking home two awards at Prize Giving, even my Sonny Bunny got an Effort award! We flew off to Spain a very proud family!

I did try a keep you all updated as much as I could on holiday on Instagram and I really hope you enjoyed all my holiday spam! For those who missed it I have two circles on highlights!

We set off early hours  on the Saturday morning and  after more celebrating on the Friday night with friends with heavy heads and feeling very tired! Lucca threw up on the plane, I think the heavy emotional week at school took its toll on him too!

My lovely dad was there to meet us at Malaga and we set off to the apartment and ready to hit the pool! Needed by all I must say!

And my new IT suitcase was a real hit , I loved using it….

All the boys feel asleep after a long swim, Mr O is not a fan of the early bird flights apparently , I love it you get the whole day then! So that night we stayed local and walked round to a little Pizza place called Marios.

Outfit 1:

So I wanted to keep it cool and breezy so I opted for a Orange off shoulder  midi dress By Prestige Boutique { I will confess before any messages start rolling in , that I wore PB every night as I loved them so much! I did have other brands with me but only wore one by Aspiga Beach}

We are all wearing Prestige Boutique Such an easy dress to wear , I do love an off the shoulder number on holiday too!

I think it was a well deserved break and the next day all we did was hit the pool and lay like broccoli 🙌

One item that has been very popular this summer is our beach bags and I used mine everyday ….

Our inspired beach bags selling like hot cakes , and I can see why ! Super chic and stylish!

The second night we stayed local again and decided to try a new beach bar that’s called Barraka , it wasn’t one I would rush back to but was very pleasant!

I was excited to wear my backless beach dress too….

All wearing Prestige Boutique

I will say I do advise once you unpack go through your holiday wardrobe and plan your outfits, especially if like me, washing your hair on holiday is a real pain! My hair can last 2 days before it needs to be sorted again, hence why the second night it was up . Hair with a backless dress always looks better up . I still stick to this plan on every holiday and it works well. Even if you just jot it down on your notes in your phone!

Aspiga Beach had kindly sent me a dress of theirs as a gift and I was super excited to wear it! What I love about Aspiga Beachwear how unique their styles are…

I even had to get a lift selfie!
Chic and sophisticated

That night as it was Mr O’s birthday it was our turn to wear our Lemon Dolce inspired looks, I have waited so long to wear this little number and it went down a treat. its now packed away safe all ready for Barbados

The boys tops I had especially made with the lemon material to match my dress!

So I always said I would stop the Matching Theme once the boys reach secondary school! And I will so in Barbados we are going out with a bang! Maybe on one off special occasions I might have to do it , but October will be my last Matching session 😪 . To be honest they never moan about doing pictures or wearing their little outfits so I guess that’s why it has gone on for so long and they have been little Gems.

Back to our Lemon Look.. My dress is by PB , the boys tops are Marks & Spencer, i just had my tailor attach the material to the pockets for me, which i have done on other outfits too!

I had these tops made for Barbados last year in the same material as my dress!

As it was Mr O’s birthday we went to a wonderful restaurant called El Carnicerio if you like your steak you will love this one just up near cancellada

We manged to walk over here too which was even better! A little tip for this one, if you pay cash you will get a free bottle of wine!
My dress avalabile to order now

If there is one night i love about my holiday its The Fiesta Del Carmen and we go every year to the Puerto Banus celebration, As my parents were heading home the next day we made this their last night celebration.

We dined at La Bocana which is prime position for the mouth of the harbor to watch all the boats coming in and out

La Bocana
This picture does not do this justice { to watch my live highlights head to my Instagram  page to watch Marbs 19,  1 and 2 }

What did i wear you ask? Well we wore another Dolce inspired number

Another night another PB number teamed with Zara shoes on me and boys have Pisamonas loafers on!

We finished off our night at Villa Padierna Beach Club for farewell drinks

I wish we had had more nights as this would have definitely  been one of my choices to go for a meal and they have a fab kids menu too!

Swim

So swimwear this season for me is all about swimsuits one pieces and high waisted bikini’s

I’m all over these inspired swimsuits right now, especially this one which is also available in blue!
If Zebra print is more your thing then this one is super glam and super feminine!
No words needed this is my favorite
And i saved it for my last day!

All swimwear is available to order now!

After a day in the sun relaxing , We asked the children where was the one place they wanted to go to eat , Nanna & Poppa had gone home so it was time to head out on our own, right opposite Mum & Dads place is the best Japanese restaurant , so this was to be our next treat to be.

I opted for hearts , i had waited a while to wear this dress so it had to be done especially now the tan was kicking in so the vibrant red colour was sure to stand out on us all…

I loved wearing this beaut by PB shoes too! Boys wearing Polo Ralph Lauren and Pisamonas
My little loves!

Our holiday was coming to end thick and fast which meant taking in every bit of sun we could get , you may have noticed on our holidays we don’t do much accept , sun worship all day and socialize all night! That’s a holiday though right 😂😎

We are not ones for having days out here and there , i think if you have busy life’s back home which we both do then its nice to do NOTHING!

It was fresh fish for lunch and time to chill by the pool , i think the boys were quite tired as both decided to have a little power nap in the sun, our usual routine that i have stuck to since day dot on holiday still works like a charm , i have shared this so many times on here and Instagram , but i still get asked on Instagram about and i still think it works like a charm! Nothing worse than going out stressed!

The routine lol

We headed out to Laguna Village

Laguna Village

We thought we would head out early and have some drinks before deciding where to eat that night, i love just sitting and people watching

I wore a white bandeau dress and boys had white tops on by PB too

My go to dress on holiday is always a little white number and this is super stylish and chic, white always looks so crisp with a tan too!

We had drinks at Puro Beach

Puro Beach at Laguna Village

And we all matched the décor too 😂

Puro Beach

Then we headed back to Da Marios for Veal Millanese the boys favorite meal right now!

Last full day was upon us , it was fun and games in the pool and lots of sun worshiping for mummy!  We have spoken about moving to Spain for a while and the children are on board too . I grew up in Spain and it really is the best life! I really want Sonny to finish his school he is at right now so once that’s done i think it might be an option , so Sonny thought he would take a look at some property that day 😂

Someone is ready to go!

For our last night it was back to El Carcinero in Cancellada

I wore my PB white Floral dress and teamed the boys in matching green a real deep striking colour

You may have noticed we had a similar attire on last year on our last night too lol!

We always say the the boys we like them to spend at least 30-40 mins talking to us about their day before heading on the I pads so we had lots of fun talking about our holiday which sadly had now come to an end!

Farewell shots { the boys was not alcoholic }

The next day Mr O took the boys off my hands so i could pack and clean the apartment for mum, so they headed down to the pool , i did manage to get 10 min walk on the front in my new dress and a quick Rose!

This is such a cute dress, and perfect for the beach or a girly lunch on holiday!

So its OUR THING to head to Puerto Banus on our last day its something we have always done even before the boys came along and we always go to La Pappardella

La Pappaerdella Puerto Banus, if you like food and people watching , then this is your place!

The perfect restaurant to take in the last few hours of your holiday and the food is to die for, always check your bill in this restaurant though!! Something that we have always done since i lived in Spain at this restaurant , sometimes i think as your English you are not on the ball and have added things on the bill before … !

Another thing i always have to do is treat the boys in NECK&NECK , considering this year is my last for matchy matchy i had to get a couple of bits for them, watch out Barbados we are ready for you!

NECK&NECK

We arrived at Malaga Airport early which is unheard for us only to be told we was delayed , so we quickly found a quite spot and chilled with a cold beverage!

After finally boarding an hour after we were meant to, it was time to say Adios Espana!

And that’s a wrap!

For anyone wanting to order any of my outfits shown today please contact me on Instagram!

I’m now off to do mummy duties, so take care and thanks for reading

Happy Tuesday

Whats a Girl to do?

Hello

How are we all?

So with the holiday fast approaching I’m thinking I’m actually a lot more organised  than I am this time ( not in my head or on paper ) but in the way that the cases look like they have fallen off a lorry!

Since Prestige Boutique came along my time  just flies ( before messages start rolling in , I’m not complaining , I  love it , every minute of it in fact )

What I love about what I do is Instagram and all the wonderful ladies I get to meet and talk too!

Everyone who takes the time to do Giveaways and Promote my page is just so wonderful, I have made some lovely friends.

If you don’t follow then these ladies are a must:

Carole M beauty , Elizas-Everyday, and StripyCoral { there are lots more of you but I cant name you all I will be here all day}

My time is taken up a lot with what I do although some people still think I do nothing!

One lady that I love talking to too is Kat Farmer ( if you don’t follow her which I’m sure by now you do ) anyway this lady wore one of our dresses at the weekend and I have to say , Kat looked totally amazing and striking! So Thankyou Kat for sharing. Totally rocking our Rainbow dress!

Thankyou Kat for sharing our dress you look amazing! Follow Doesmybumlookbigat40 now x

 

This year I have been sent some wonderful items that I will be storing and picturing on my grid so you must keep and eye out for those beauties on my holiday , you will love !

Especially Aspiga,  that’s a beautiful dress which I have been waiting so long to wear and I finally get to wear it , plus I have am amazing kaftan too!

The boys also have some Prestige Boutique bits to wear and we will be matching! There is one particular dress I cant wait to wear as the boys have got matching tops too { I have had these especially made}

I have been going back and forth on outfits and I’m not very clear on what I want to take, I need to have it all done really by next week as the boys have so many things on at school . We fly 6am the day after they break up! Seemed a good idea at the time ha!

A couple of new looks for you , as some of you are not Instagram I do like to keep you up to date too! { sorry if I bore the ones that are }

Starting with this dress I wore to Due Amici last week…

I loved wearing this one! So chic!

Before hand I met up with the girls at The Manor and I wore my new Gina Maxi…

Our Gina dress has a real Gucci vibe about it too, I chose to wear the belt as a ribbon in my hair! After all it is all the rage right now!

If its some chic summer styles then these two below are so easy and so easy to throw in the suitcase to go away….

Sometimes I can be weary of these style dresses as they can tend to give you that pregnant look ha! I chose to wear our lemon headband set to really set that look alive!

Hands up who else loves polkas? If like me you do then this one is for you!

Love!

Another thing I have started today is the NOSH Juice Fast , I went for the two day one! I have this terrible cold, cough sore throat etc! So it came at the right time and plus its always nice to lose a few pounds before I hit the pool!

I think the two day fast for me is best as I do like my food and don’t think I can hold off for too much longer ha! I especially love the fact that this program comes with a little booklet on what to do if you feel like giving up!

Loads more programs available so check out the NOSH website today and if you say my name DANIELLA from EYEZONZANELLI you will receive 15% off your first order ! NOTE: You have to email them before you place your order to get this promotion from me!

So my Lucca is in France this week , we have no communication with them which is hard. I’m sure they are having a ball though! From what I have seen , all they are doing is eating,  ha!

So I’m now off to post some of your goodies going out and get my little Sonny Bunny !

Have a wonderful week and I will try a squeeze a quick blog post in before I go especially on the denim dress I’m going to wear at the weekend . That baby needs a blog post to its self 💙💙💙

Happy Tuesday

Daniella

Hello and Good Morning  to you all

How are we all? it’s been a while so I hope your all well and looking forward to having a catch up with me!

This morning  has been manic for me and I have just sat down as I have been meaning to do this blog post for ages. The time just goes!

Those who follow on insta might have seen what I’m going to waffle on about today already { so sorry in advance if I bore you today!}

So when I last left you all we was heading out for a family dinner to welcome home little Sonny from camp! And I mentioned I was going to wear a Lorna Luxe dress, Lorna  who styles a fab collection for In The Style always looks fabulous and I love her collection!

I wore the Pink Practically Perfect Porcelain dress ……

And of course my little Munchkins matched me ….

We had a wonderful meal at Primadonnas West Wickham and it was nice to have my baby home!

On Saturday the 25th May I was invited to The Ned in London to The Vault downstairs for a private function!

Panic took over, I wanted something light as the weather looked like it was going to be nice that day! So Lorna Luxe to the rescue, I knew how much I loved the pink and she had just launched the beige version , so of course it had to be done!

Wearing my Lorna Luxe dress ….

Lorna Luxe Dress and Jimmy Choo shoes!

We had the most amazing day with lots of Mismosos with a divine lunch followed by drinks on the roof…

The Vault

 

And of course it wouldn’t be a Saturday in London without a toilet selfie ha! As they we’re strict on pictures we settled for this in the loo, and we did like the seat too…

Family Pic in the Loo ha!

Some others I have orderd  and want to order…!

So I went for this cute set as I loved the look of it and thought it would very versatile too! That skirt in the winter with a leather jacket would look amazing!

Glamour and Chic rolled into one with this super dress below…

Love! Want..!

And this one too….

The perfect little LBD! This is on my list 100%

I like this brand as it’s so easy to wear and is not over priced either so you could even treat yourself every week to something new! Plus i like that fact that you can wear all year round as most things have longer sleeves , throw on a leather jacket and your good to go!

Be sure to check out the collection at In The Style now, plus all new subscribers get 20% off too!

it’s Sonny Birthday Sunday so we are heading up to London I’m hoping the rain will hold off as in this weather just dot know what to wear? Is anyone else in limbo like this now?

Now I just need to decide what to wear?

 

Spotted:

This Other Stories dress seems to have everyone in a tizzle , apparently it runs on the larger side , head to Other Stories now to see what else is popular for the summer! { if we get one !}

My SilkFred denim jacket sold out the day i wore it last week, i would like to think i helped this as when i orderd every size was in stock . Unfortunately this has now Sold Out!

A fabulous afternoon spent with dear friends at The Bickley Manor wearing my dress and Shoes PB, jacket SilkFred!

So i think i have showed you the best finds from Lorna Luxes Collection now available at In The Style be sure to take a look and remember to tag me if you post anything on Social Media , that way Lorna can see where you read about her fab collection! to be honest tag me in with what ever you have bought a worn from seeing it her at DaniellaZanelli.com

Hello Everyone

How are we all?

First of a huge apologies I have not been in touch sooner! Its been busy here as usual!

I have just collected a very muddy Sonny from school, all of his class has just got back from two days camping or as they call it now Bushcraft! So he now winding down, dare I say it on the XBOX ! I think he may have missed that more than us ha!

So there is so much I LOVE on the high street right now…

If like me you like The Chic look, then H&M , Topshop and of course PB have some very Chic and debonair looks right now! I do love dainty , feminine and in general girlie styles!

The last time I looked this dress had very low stock but it’s just out of this world , and speaks Zimmerman 100%….

Such a fabulous inspired dress by H&M love it!

I wore a similar one Sunday when we went out with friends mine was by PB ….

I received lots of lovely messages on this dress , it really has that chic look to it! I felt very feminine in this one!

And of course I had to match the boys up in similar colours ….

Sonny is wearing Next and PB , and how grown up does he look too!

Another H&M look I love are these cute tops….

So pretty! I love this one ! Such an expensive look but without the price tag, this also comes in Black and White!

Another high street one that caught my eye was from Topshop…

Beautiful!
Speaking of florals , look at this by PB such an easy GO TO dress!

Everyone girl  should have a dress like this in their wardrobe, the LBD never dates and this is just the bomb! Love!

I do seem to have a lot of black in my wardrobe but I think I may have to add this cutie!

Looking for an every day look then this broderie anglaise jumpsuit is just so striking , jazz it up in the evening with heels!

Bikini Love by Topshop

The scalloped detail gives it such a designer look!
This one is packed already in my suitcase! This is by PB and we only have few left!

Lemon Love 🍋

Lemon Dress by H&M and £8.99 you can’t go wrong!

Another item that has hit the shops and our insta squares is The Headband:

Keeping in with The Lemon affect this PB set has so much charisma I love love love, Very Italian Riviera!

I though this two pack by ASOS was a good deal and perfect for that holiday wardrobe!

If you really want these colours to stand out I recommend wearing a block colour with them ie: Black or White!

New Look does Pucci…

Very Pucci, this headband by New Look will certainly have heads turning , love it!

Footwear:

Now we all know how much I love a nude suede heel! And New Look have never released the ones that I live in since I bought them a couple of years ago! { PLEASE NEW LOOK , JUST PLAIN NUDE SUEDE SANDAL 🙏}

Hello and Good Afternoon

How are we all doing ? So its been a while since I last checked in! Prestige Boutique and Instagram are keeping me very busy.  We have had loads going on with secondary school transfer meetings etc, its  just one thing after another! Before we know it summer will be here.. Yipee!

So I get asked loads on Instagram, how do I do it? And, I don’t mean blogging. They mean how do I have the time to plan 2 or 3 holidays a year with the outfit scheme , plus days out too!

My answer is, it just comes naturally and I guess I have a OCD kinda of thing going on! I’m just not one to go out looking like I have raided the dressing up box! I like everything to flow, always have done really!

I think the outfits should tell a story and that’s why certain colours and shoes have to be just right!

I often write on Instagram about me being awake late at night searching for things and I’m not joking! Last night I was still going at 1 am !

We have a special holiday this year for my 40th so its going out with a bang as they say leaving the 30s on a high!

So the planning has already begun and I have 3 outfits for myself so far, so just need to start matching the boys up!

Because Prestige Boutique features Beach and children’s wear it will be a case of showing off all of that too so its going to take a lot of planning! Obviously I wont just be wearing PB I will be wearing other brands too! Just because I’m the ambassador for PB does not mean I do not wear other brands!

So it all started when little Sonny Bunny came along , I always promised myself I could never be one of those who wears mix match things for their kids { nothing wrong with that if you do ] But as explained , with me it has to flow!

I’m not one to put my kids in football kits to go out in  or Logo t shirts ie; With Fortnight splashed across the front, again if that’s your thing then nothing wrong its just not for me!

I remember our first trip with both the boys to Florida , I well and truly stocked up on matching items , since then it stuck!

Our trip to spain that year I had searched high and low to get their matching D&G jelly sandals , I went for these as I thought with kids that age in a hot country they would go with everything, I went for silver as it was a colour that they could wear with any outfit and navy blue as these could be for day time attire on the beach { the silver was only ever to be used at night and if daddy got them dressed for the day he often used to get in trouble for putting the wrong colour on ha!}

I remember taking this it was fun to see all their matching outfits hanging together! { it does not take much to please me , ha!}

The D&G jelly shoes were quite reasonable back then I think I used to pay about £40 a pair, I know now they have gone up loads , fear not I have a reasonable brand for you to use at half the money and they look exactly the same!

I bought these at Children’s Salon , look how tiny they are , it goes so quickly … sad face!

Igor jelly shoes are exactly the same , ok they might not have the quirky silver glitter ones but for neutral sandals for every day use .  My two  are too old for these now but to be honest if the sizing went up I would totally get these for by the pool on holiday!

Office and Panash kids stock these certain sandal

IGOR jelly sandal

So not only was it the shoes it was the swim shorts that had to be worn and worn correctly, and what better way to do it that in Vilebrequin, we lucky enough to receive a pair from my sister-in-law as she has a boy too , so I just had to match the butterfly ones up for Sonny and I managed to grab a pair in the sale! Then we conned daddy out more in Puerto Banus that year and of course he had to join in !

look how cute!

So as time went on , it just flowed and it was a case or ordering things in two different sizes , I remember every Christmas I would spend a fortune in Neck and Neck on their Christmas outfits.

Neck & Neck outfits!

So how did I come to join in?

Well not sure to be honest , I remember I was laying in bed not long before our holiday one year to Barbados, and I was going through my outfits and what the boys had on their list, when I noticed we had all of the same colours , so for someone like me it was a total no brainer! I sat up again till about 1am righting everything down what was going with what, including earings , flowers for hair, shoes you name it! This was the year a lot of friends said I should start a blog… the following year I did!

We kicked it off in this little attire!

I had this dress from Karen Millen from back in the day, so when I walked in to Ralph Lauren it was a dot on the card that the boys had to have the matching shorts! I couldn’t believe it, it  was exactly the same pattern .

I bought my dress when I was about 21 , who would have thought years later RL would launch a kids short in the exact same print! Result for us though!

Now the boys are older , I chose to put them in Pisamonas loafers ,  the one and only colour tan!  Why tan, because it goes with everything! I don’t take anything else for they boys just these . Although they do have Red Panash loafers I have taken a couple of years for when we wear red!

I loved wearing this vintage Morgan De Toi dress with the boys all in red!

I always have a SPECIAL outfit for special nights like The Cliff and The One and Only on the Palm , I’m sure if like us you love your restaurants , then you will always have a special one. So these were ours, So , Go Big always…

I can’t show you all my Cliff outfits or I will be here all night but here is one at the Cliff and one in Dubai, it  was pure fluke that they are both purple to ha!

I know anyone can match outfits up and anyone can put colours together , but when I say I write things down and change outfits and colours I not lying, I remember my mum found my list from Barbados just gone and she couldn’t believe the detail on the list!

I like to show lots of different colours and I don’t and will not wear two colours in a row!

Top Tips Boys:

The boys have no joke about 7  pairs of white shorts in the summer , and two pairs of jeans for winter

Other colours they have one each size!

I have and take so many white shorts as they go with everything and look so smart! But remember on holiday there are things like Chocolate Ice Cream, so if they do get ruined I have a back up plan { I do pack a Vanish stick with me to ha ! Although year just gone I used it more on daddy’s shirts}

It’s just a less stress free zone for me to do this so its good to have back ups! The reason I only take on pair in the colour shorts is they only wear them once , twice at most!

Winter:

The boys have one pair of winter suede boots , this year they have tan, usually they have navy as I like the foot to blend with the jeans , rather than be an eye sore! But needless to say Next did not release any this year , so we went with tan! I know I could have purchased elsewhere but I couldn’t find any I liked!

The jeans I buy is always boys skinny jeans again from Next, these wash up so lovely and never fade! Its handy too as Sonny gets all of Lucca’s old ones!

Velvet Blazers, I do and will continue to have these in the boys wardrobes, these are such an investment piece that never date and always look fab on and very smart , I NEVER let them wear with trousers , ALWYAS jeans!

How smart do my bubbas look! They also have these blazers in a Maroon colour!

Shirts my go to colours are always , white, navy , blush  pink and baby blue! I always make sure their sizes are up to date in these colours and irioned ready to wear in the  wardrobe .

Top Tips for myself:

I always make sure I have a comfy pair of tan suede heels  I like from New Look , I have had these for as long as I can remember and cant find any others I like it and they have never released them again . New Look please bring them out again !

I have so many different designers in my wardrobe I have bought but I still go back to my old faithfuls,  so if you have a certain designer or brand that works for you , stick to it and stock up!

Wearing my New Look sandals! Photo taken at The Cliff , one of our special outfits!

I do have my tan Jimmy Choo wedges that I live in the summer too, but certain dresses do not go with clumpy shoes!

Black suede court shoes always a winner again New Look and H&M do it for me!

These I have on here are from H&M

Lets talk panties , yes we are doing this , so I am into the high waisted panties from next right now, these always feel like they are holding it all in . I even wear them over tights in the winter! Another tip is to go a size bigger than your actual size, they fit so much better and really do help with the muffin top ha!

So a pack of two and nude for under dresses in the summer, black in the winter!

Dresses:

My must have for dresses, White/Cream, Black a few black, one , shift, dressy, backless, knitted, off shoulder, the list can go on with me! Pink , Red , Yellow and Purple! Even Gold with me , oh do you no what every colour ha!

As long as you have the basics , you can jazz outfits up and turn things around a little! Sometimes I study the colours in my outfits and put the boys in different shades of the colour in my dress for a different kind of matching look!

Example shown here , the boys are wearing shades from my dress!
Keep Bold colours paired with a neutral colour too, I always choose white , so those bright colours really do stand out!

So Friday just gone was so lovely and we decided to go to Branded Beckeham , I was really unsure what to wear all day as I’m trying to save things for myself and  the boys for holiday and me being me I don’t like to show it off beforehand { I have so much I’m saving ha! } Anyway I had a Miss Selfridge dress I have never worn , it was £20 in the sale and I just never really thought about it,  I was trying to find the perfect court shoe to go with it. This dress is so unique and feminine that it deserves a delicate heel to compliment it! So when I found my nude suede courts in nude , I knew they was for me and for my bargain dress! The gods must have been on side Friday as we had some new PB boys jumpers arrive and the pinks ones that arrived was a true perfect match!

How fabulous do my boys look in their Prestige Boutique Pink Jumpers { other colours available , inbox to order }

My £20 dress totally rocked the look I was going for!

The List:

I always jot down what you want to wear or take with you , then I go and look to see what the boys have in their  wardrobe and what we can work with! I will be honest, if nothing really jumps out at me, that’s when I start to surf the net to see what does take my fancy! I have been known to spend more on their look rather than mine! As long as it compliments my outfit with the WOW factor then I will just go for it!

Some fab sites that never seem to let me down are

Next, Matalan , Childrensalon , H&M ,  Ralph Lauren and Neck&Neck.

I always seem to find something in one of those!

Bags:

I always and have done it like an oversized bag , although the boys are bigger now I do like a big bag! I still take out of a night with me , spare jeans for Sonny and , spare chargers, phones incase the I pads run out and the chargers are not enough to power the I pads up { sounds crazy I know but we do spend a lot of time in restaurants and the boys are always made to spend an hour talking to us before we let them lose on the I pads, Mr O and do like to sit and chat with drinks after our dinner so its only fair they get their I pads and have back up plans if they run out, especially in Barbados we could sit there till all hours taking in the scenery}

I always have Nurofen Melts as the boys are old enough now to take these and it beats taking a large bottle of nurofen with me! And a packet of wipes! This is with out all my rubbish ha ! I will say I do always take spare tights if I’m wearing tights! On holiday , I will always take a tote for the beach and a tote for the evening! I cant bear going out and getting all sand in my bag, The boys did have Goyard mini bags for the I pads but to be honest they ended up in my bag so they are still like brand new a never been used!

Again I always have a bag in mind for holiday , I always have a bag for the winter , and a neutral for the summer! Gold is always a winner in my eyes in the summer! This year I’m going for Gold and Pink.

I have never been one to over accessorize,  but I am warming to them more and more especially the oversized !

If like me you was unsure then all I can say is just gor for it!

I guess I have always kept things simple so that’s why I have always kept them to a bare minimum. My thing right now is oversized earings!

Here are some of my favourites by Prestige Boutique

Love these fabulous diamond heart earings!
Our Simple Diamond hearts!
I had to share this picture of my friend who kindly said I could share this with you, how fabulous does she look in our Red Ceramic Flower earings!
Also available in white!

Good Evening.

Hope your all keeping well and ready for the half term break! We have one solider down here with sickness bug! The joys of school life! Does anyone else get this at school?

So did you all have a fab Valentines Day? We spent it with our Snuggle Muffins watching their favourite TV show on E4 called The Goldbergs! If you havent seen it , YOU MUST! It’s so funny , it’s based on a family set in the 80-90s (lets just say the kids think I’m like Bev the mum, if you watch it you might see why lol!)

I’m hoping it’s not the hair or the clothes that’s why I remind them of her ha!

So speaking of Valentines it was a wonderful surprise when Mr O turned up with these….

The Boy did good this year!

I was very lucky a couple of weeks ago to receive a complimentary facial from Pink and Blue beauty Salon in Bromley. They gave me the Hydradermine Facial and I have to say my skin has been absolutely amazing since!

So I’m happy  to say that I have a nice discount code for you to use,  you can  have any facial at 20% off when you quote DANIELLA (offer ends 1st March)

I also had some beautiful highlights put in my hair by the wonderful Sharon at Chislehurst Hair, I really do love being blonde but my hair drives me potty when my roots need doing and I just cant do it myself anymore. Sharon to the rescue! Another discount code for you

And another one for you why we are on the subject is

offer ends March 20th

Yesterday was like a summer’s day and did anyone have the urge to get the summer clothes out ?

So as it was Friday and as it was nice weather there was only one place to meet the girls, that was The Manor at The Bickley

There is no place like it when the sun is out! We love it there , the kids always enjoy the grounds and the staff are always so friendly

Look at the picture Sonny took for me , it seriously could be the middle of summer not February!

I was the first one to arrive yesterday and I sat there with the boys just taking it in, it was like being on holiday! You must try if your local! Especially in the summer they have a BBQ , music and cocktails!

We have some divine new looks for you at Prestige Boutique and these are my new crushes below…

The pink sweater , these are super soft and come in all colours!
Our lounge sets , these also come in other colours , I think Grey is my favourite so far!
The sequin Blazer! Loving this right now, and I love the fact its a nice length so anyone wanting to cover up the bottom area this is for you!
Don’t forget the heart earings ! Since I first wore these on NYE , these have gone crazy and we can’t get enough of them!
I was so lucky enough to take this picture yesterday in that blazing sun! My little Sonny behind the lens too, he is getting the hang of this camara man lark ! (although Chris if your reading you are still Number 1, just training him up ha!) The Dress is so striking and would be amazing for a special occasion! (to place an order head to insta EyezonZanelli}
But my number 1 this week has to go too this Polka Dot sheer top! I love this one! This would just go with everything!

So as this is my second attempt to post this tonight not sure what happened! And now I need to look after a sick child , I’m signing off! So sorry its short a sweet!

Fingers crossed for us he will be ok tomorrow as we are off to or favourite restaurant for dinner!

Have a wonderful evening

Daniella

Afternoon lovelies.

How are we all? I’m absolutely freezing is anyone else?

Its been so busy for us here the boys have had their annual sing song with Young Voices at the O2 , that was Thursday . As per usual it was very emotional, this was the boys final year doing this as secondary school beckons my Lucca and there is no way I can see Sonny doing it on his own (although the teacher did pull us aside and say to Lucca if he still wanted to do it next year they would be happy to let him join).

Another great thing is that the boys got to sing with Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet, he was absolutely brilliant and it took me back to my youth in Spain! It’s a shame I cant  upload videos on here as to be able to hear the children sing Gold and True with him was truly sensational! For anyone who does want to have a nose then please head to my Instagram page and on my highlights Young Voices has its own circle you will  see  all the fun and songs on there!

Tony Hadley in full swing singing True!
My little Young Voices duo

I decided to wear my Blue Next Jeans, my Jimmy Choo boots, and both looked very stylish with my Prestige Boutique blouse and Holly inspired coat!

I love this blouse so easy to wear and very stylish! { inbox me now to order}
The coat of Dreams right here!{ Inbox to order}

 

So apologies for showing you lots of beautiful summer pieces already , if your a real Fashionista you will already have your eye on summer bits! (as I do).

This time of year I think its nice to be able to introduce some summer bits into your winter collection. I often do this . For example a dress that can be worn in the winter with tights , might look fabulous in the summer with bare legs and heels or flat sandals!

Starting with Prestige Boutique I’m showing you some looks I have started to wear with my winter collection.

So this monochrome set I was saving for the summer , but then decided to jazz up just a plain roll neck with it! What a great combo. This could be worn with little black boots instead of heels if you prefer that look!
And this is the actual set!
This top is just beautiful and selling very fast it also comes in black! I havent actually managed to take a picture to show you with  the  white shorts which is probably what I would wear I with in the summer!

The dress version is to die for look

Love

Something New that has landed is this new Chanel style cap …

How stylish I this ? I just love it and it helps when the roots need a touch up too! available in other colours and styles! { you have to watch my stories on insta to see the full collection, not everything is on my grid! I get asked all the time why can’t I see things that you have that have been mentioned on the blog! So Stories and highlights}

Blazer Love:

This embellished blazer is so stunning and looks fab dressed with jeans or even a maxi dress in the summer and this over the top to keep you looking Runway Ready! { inbox to order}
Keeping it more casual now in this inspired Blazer from PB this is so stylish for an every day look! { inbox to order}

 

Calling all wedding Guests or anyone going to Ascot this year, how stunning is this PB dress…

This is so elegant , this also comes in Black too! { inbox me now to order}

Friday evening was spent at Branded Beckenham with friends and I have been waiting to wear a skirt I bought ages ago from George at Asda, it was far too big for me and I had to get it altered which the famous Agostino did wonders with it for me!

So I wore my PB jumper { order now } and my Asda skirt with my M&S heels! just love this look!
I had to get the boys involved too! Pink it is!

 

High street favs right now:

Zara:

Mustard dress by Zara
What a stunning dress for holiday!

 

Matalan:

I thought this was really pretty!

Dune:

A boot that goes with absolutely everything!

So a big colour this season is Navy and I found these at River Island:

How Balmain is this dress, this is stunning!
Love Love Love

So I think I have covered what I have seen a loved so far!

I still get a lot of messages about how people can view items from Prestige Boutique.  You need to go to my Instagram page and watch my stories and highlights! Any other questions just ask!

I’m going to sign off now before there is a war between them all on the Xbox, yes that includes Mr O too the biggest child of all!

Have a wonderful Sunday x

New Year New Post

**PLEASE NOTE TO LEAVE A REPLY TO ME YOU NEED TO CLICK ON THE BLOG TITLE (ABOVE) TO TAKE YOU TO THE REPLY AREA**

Hello and a Happy New Year to you all.

Hope you had a wonderful New Year and all did something special!

We went to one of our favourites in Beckenham. It was a special night with my little crew and we sat and laughed before heading home just before seeing in 2019 with our babies!

I wore one of our classic dresses by Prestige Boutique and the boys had their PB blazers on!

Dress and earing are PB Bag: Colette by Colette Hayman Shoes: New Look
How grown up and gorgous do my babies look! wearing Velvet Blazers by PB Jeans and Boots : Next Shirts are Polo Ralph Lauren

Now its all back to normal here with entrance exams and lots revising. And, of course back to Blogging for mummy!

We have had a few Summer Collection arrive at PB , so I’m going to share some with you here that are available to order now!

Starting with this amazing Orange Dress:

So in love with this pretty dress and I cant wait to wear! Roll on Summer!

Or you can go classic with this sequin tailored dress:

Look at the sequin detail , such a beautiful dress and so versatile ! This could be worn with black tights and heels for a real chic look!

So you may remember my post on Holly’s outfits from I’m a Celebrity? Well look what I wore last night:

LOVE LOVE LOVE my new coat by PB { this selling fast too! }

A couple of dainty summer looks below that seem to be taking Insta by storm:

This dress is a fab one to wear when you are glowing with a tan , and would look so cute on holiday with a pair of nude heels or wedges!
Or our Portofino Set is one to have you looking glam too, the beauty of this set too is that you could dress this down and wear the skirt with a white t-shirt and H sandals!

So is anyone shopping for swimwear yet? As you know from my last post I’m looking for Pinks this year, Pink dresses and Pink swimwear . I’m just loving the Pinks! Well I’m afraid I havent got any good news for you! I received the ones I showed before from Missguided and Boohoo . They looked hideous on me. So its back to the drawing board! The trouble is with me once I get something In my head I just have to get it! I already have outfits planned for myself and the boys for Spain 😂 (crazy I know).

I’m going to have a shop around for more pinks and hopefully I will have some better luck 🙏

So I’m signing off now to sort the boys dinner out now! Have a wonderful Saturday and Happy Shopping!

Oh and before I forget,  I have just started YOU on Netflix, has anyone seen this? Not sure what I’m thinking yet , Dan Humphrey a stalker?? Hmmmmmmm!

Daniella
