ive got a christening next weekend, its in a pub beforehand and the actual church bit us at 4.30 so nothing evening.

Id just like to put on some leggings/tights with a nice tunic that i could wear again.

Would that be suitable? Any can anyone link to some nice tunics, not wishy washy stuff from new look etc

Definitely suitable for a christening. I haven't bought any recently but I'm sure someone wiser than I will be along soon!

Both too garish for me. I dont mind colour but rarely wear anything with a bold pattern or flowery

Adini on line do nice tunics with nice but not over the top patterns. Can't do a link! But yes, outfit sounds good for a christening smile

Joules have a navy one with birds on that I am buying to wear to a wedding at the weekend - though thick navy tights and navy platforms would look good with it.

mosschops - I'd never shopped there either until very recently. Either I'm getting older or their stuff is getting better wink

Lol i know was just thinking 'im too young to shop in wallis' but i find myself going into warehouse/oasis/newlook and turning my nose up at all the trendy shit.
Am more likely to browse boden shock <faints>

Im not fussedon the joules one for me but looks lovely on the model.

I think i need to go to town and have a wander
