The past year, one of the biggest trends I have seen, is the growth of the peplum style dresses and tops. The style whereby it hugs the figure until reaching upon the waist and then flares out below. Not only is it flattering but hides a multitude of sins too. 

When Bonmarche got in touch, I just had to try one out for myself and took no time at all in choosing the David Emanuel Heart Print Peplum Top with Pendant with the coordinating grey cable knit tights. The top is priced at £22.50 and comes with the pendant to match and the tights are just £8.00.

The peplum top is a great fit size wise and is long in length too so covers all those lumpy bumpy bits easily. The heart print is cute and funky and pendant necklace makes it a real statement piece. The material is thin but not flimsy and it hugs the skin whilst feeling too tight, washing really well and looking good wash after wash. 

I teamed the top with a plain denim skirt and a pair of cable knit tights which came in grey and suited the colour of the top perfectly. The tights being very thick and warm but also very comfortable to wear. Overall, I love this style and the top is great for my body shape to cover the bits that I don't like. 

You can purchase the gorgeous David Emanuel Heart Print peplum top on the Bonmarche website and also check out all the other beautiful tops too whilst you're there.

Daniel Footwear Majid Boots

Yorkshire Blog, Mummy Blogging, Parent Blog, Daniel Footwear, Boots, The Majid, Review,

I am obsessed with boots and I don't just mean a little but a lot. I have loads of pairs and am always buying more. I hate flat boots though and usually opt for a wedge or small heel as I feel more comfortable in them. 
I try to vary styles and couldn't resist asking for The Majid boots from Daniel Footwear to review when they got in touch. 

From their very own shoe range, Daniel, The Majid is both comfortable and stylish. 

They come in brown faux suede, which is super soft, with a fashion buckle and strap over the 2inch contrast heel. 
The zip is full length which makes them super easy to put on and it matches in colour with the boots so is concealed.

Not only do these boots look good but they feel good also. The heel is just the right size to give a bit of height but not be uncomfy after hours of shopping. 
The sole is solid and the material protective and thick. 
I can tell whilst wearing them, that they are good quality and made of a high standard. 

The Majid boots match perfectly with jeans, trousers, leggings and even tunic dresses and the fact that they are a mid brown colour means that they will match most colour-ways too. I am sure that I will be wearing them for ages to come. 

I was a bit hesitant at first with the fact of them being priced out of my range with an RRP of £89.99 but Daniel Footwear currently have them on sale at £26.99 which is a snip when you look at their quality and style. 
You can purchase The Majid boots from the Daniel Footwear website and find other branded shoes and bags on there too.
