It's time - I'm excited to bring you my Inès de La Fressange at Uniqlo Autumn 2018 Review. Yet again they've identified Midlifechic readers as their core audience and so I've had the chance to examine some of the pieces early - I can't tell you how happy this makes me. For US readers it should be going live for you today too. Just in case you're a new reader, what's so great about this Uniqlo collection? It consists of a [...]

And so here we go, the last taste of high summer on Midlifechic before we move on to Autumn. That means we should talk a little bit about beach holiday style before we move into cosy jumper and boots territory. So here's my beach holiday packing post mortem. Packing for a beach holiday - conclusions As an experiment, I packed differently this year. You may have noticed that about 95% of my holiday wardrobe focused on dresses. Once I'd worn [...]

A Kalkan summer holiday snapshot – part one

By |2018-08-24T17:05:22+01:00August 24th, 2018|Categories: Project Happier, Relationships, Style, Travel|Tags: , , , , |

Hello, I'm back and I've already been down to London but I'm itching to blog again so I thought I'd divide our Kalkan summer holiday into two parts. You see we didn't really do much in the first week which means I have enough time to give you part one today. So, seeing as the forecast is bad for the Bank Holiday weekend, I'll bring you a taste of sunshine. Before I get to that though, let me tell you [...]

Midlifechic – questions I’m often asked by readers and in interviews

By |2018-08-17T07:20:20+01:00August 16th, 2018|Categories: Project Happier, Relationships, Style|Tags: , , |

I've been interviewed for a few magazines and websites recently. So, given that quite a few of you said you'd enjoyed the FAQ post I did last year, I thought I'd pull some of the questions together just to fill the gap while we're away. I've added some of the questions that I'm asked regularly by readers too so it's a bit random... but welcome to the inside of my head (my family would tell you that it can be [...]

Back To School for Teens – a stylish way round it

I know, there wasn't supposed to be a post this week but just as I was about to log off for our holiday, one last interesting opportunity dropped into my Inbox. But this time it wasn't for me, it was for the boys which made such a nice change. So often I see mummy bloggers doing posts with their little ones and wonder what it would have been like to work with mine when they were little and pliable. Poor [...]

So long… farewell… auf wiedersehen… for now

So finally we've made it - our long awaited holiday is in sight. I can't tell you how excited I am at the thought of having all of my boys to myself for two whole weeks, I'm going to treasure every minute. The housesitters are briefed and Gary is on his way to Northumberland to stay on a cousin's farm. It's been a hectic week. A while ago, thinking that this would be a quiet time at work, I scheduled [...]
