Catherine's Holiday Outfits

Today's outfits are from my good friend, Catherine's recent holidays. As well as being a nail genius (see this previous post), Catherine is a great dresser and has a handbag collection I would commit a crime for. I asked Catherine to show me her selection of inexpensive high-street summer outfits for the curvier lady and I'm so delighted with her photos - taken most willingly by her brother Patrick on their recent family holiday to Mexico...and it was a dramatic holiday where more photos should have been taken but more on that in a bit....
White Trousers - Monsoon
Striped Top - Monsoon
Trousers - as above
Top - White Stuff
Dress - Matalan
Cardigan - M&S
Top - M&Co
Trousers - Matalan
Pink Top - White Stuff
Trousers - M&S

And my favourite photo including Patrick the photographer
(dressed entirely in Tommy Hilfiger apparently)...
Maxi Dress - Matalan
Cardigan - M&S

So I had been hoping for more photos of Catherine's curvy summer wardrobe but unfortunately, she fell and broke her arm during the holiday and ended up in a Mexican hospital having a plate inserted! A nightmare end to a dream holiday but I can report that although she's still in some pain and can't do anyone's nails <sob>, it is healing slowly and the best bit - she's getting to use her tan Mulberry cross body every day now! Jealous....Moi??



  1. Lovely colours , I should be braver with colours, thanks Catherine. And patrick looks pretty smart too. sorry about your arm. As somebody who broke a leg on holiday I know what it's like. Good Luck with the healing.
