My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

The Mummy, the Shoes ... and the Wardrobe!

As Summer is fast approaching, I have to admit to looking at my wardrobe and feeling extremely uninspired and not particularly excited about unpacking all of my summery clothes! I used to really look forward to putting away all my wooly jumpers and swapping them for vest tops, packing up my thick, heavy jeans and replacing them with light linen trousers and skirts. However, this year, I have been putting off such a task for a couple of reasons. First of all, the good old British weather forecast has not really provided me with much of a reason to pull out my lighter clothes. Every morning of Spring so far has been yet another morning for jumpers and jackets rather than sun hats and sandals! Secondly, I think I need a new Summer wardrobe!

Last Summer was spent wearing maternity clothes. I gave birth to Beastie right in the middle of the hot weather and therefore by the time I was ready to wear my own 'normal' sized clothes, the colder weather was beginning to creep in. I am in desperate need of some simple daytime styles that will take me through the summer months both in comfort and on trend! Not to mention the fact that I have a family wedding to attend in a couple of weeks time and could really do with finding something that fits me properly!

I was having a browse through New Look's website, as this is a High Street store that I regularly use. I like their collections and I love their sizes! Everything I have ever bought from New Look fits the way I would expect it to. In fact, the majority of my maternity clothes were from New Look, and they all fitted well too, so their consistency in sizing obviously applies throughout their lines! So I decided I would create a wishlist to see if I could get myself a little more inspired and find myself an outfit that may be suitable (but still practical!) for a wedding ...

I have always been a big fan of the range of Summer Maxi dresses that are available in New Look. I love maxi skirts and dresses. Not only do they look really pretty, in my case, they can hide a million sins! Although I have managed to lose the majority of my 'baby weight' since having Beastie, there are still certain lumps and bumps that I would rather keep hidden for now! 

I spotted this gorgeous dress and thought it looked ideal for a wedding reception ...

Combined with these shoes ...

And just in case we don't get the weather we are hoping for ...

I could honestly spend and incredible amount of time (not to mention a dangerous amount of money!!) browsing New Look's website. There are hundreds of styles, with thousands of style combinations. I know I could easily sort out my suffering summer wardrobe in this one place. I already have my eye on a few bits and pieces that have caught my attention whilst writing this post. Maybe, just maybe, The Man will read this post and treat me ...?

C'mon ... don't make me spend another Summer wearing my maternity tops! It's not a good look!
