Yes, yes it is still freezing, and the snow has frozen any hint of daffodils… But it’s Easter soon, which means spring has sprung and that means that summer is just around the corner!  It is never too early to look for lovely party looks that can be worn in those sultry summer evenings in London – or more probably, Ibiza – so here’s the first of our many party outfit edits!


Who doesn’t love a bit of velvet and sequins, and these two materials together make me very happy.  In fact, this gorgeous dress makes me feel like a mama in control!  At the same time, this Tamara dress from Libelula is just stunning and makes me exude fun and, dare I say it, youth!  Designed by a fellow mum of three boys – the clothes range from practical and timeless; to fun and fashionable; and basically represent every aspect of a mum’s character.


I wish that the bigger brands would have more capsule collections that are available throughout the year and don’t go in and out of fashion.  They could take a leaf out of Libelula’s book and create the stunning Delphine Sequin top that Caroline is wearing.  Rarely has a top taken our breath away as much as this one.  So flattering and forgiving, we can wear this top to a fun night out and not worry about stuffing our faces and popping a button! With a pin tuck detail and white enamel buttons, the dip hem to the front and back covers any lumps and bumps in the most flattering way.  When worn with baggy boyfriend jeans, this top oozes chilled fun and when worn with tight black trousers, oozes glamour and style.

This ISSA Daisy Lace Detail Midi Dress from House Of Fraser is very special, and a bit of a bargain as it’s on sale and only £45.  I can imagine wearing this dress at a beach bar and also on the school run in the summer as its so easy to throw on.  And, now is a great time to bag a bargain!


The Issa Layla Wrap Over Maxi dress is another one that is on sale now – the metallic colour is so unique and timeless and fits for all occasions.  Teamed with a simple black suit jacket this dress oozes glamour and business style!


Here at NotSuchAModelMum, we are partial to a jumpsuit and this Long-Sleeved Stretch Crepe Jumpsuit from See by Chloe, is flattering, timeless and on sale now!  With a splash of leopard print to complete the look – this is an outfit that will still be fashion forward in 2025.

We think that everyone should have a black jumpsuit lurking in their wardrobe.  There are different styles to suit any body shape and we promise you that there is a jumpsuit for everyone!  You just have to commit to trying lots on.  And you definitely can’t go wrong with a Chloe jumpsuit that is reduced to £210!

Furthermore, nothing beats a tipsy stumble home barefoot still feeling like a million dollars in a Self Portrait dress.  We want everything in the collection and this Crosshatch Panelled Midi Dress is a true keeper.  Even without shoes!
