I purchased a few new items of clothing since my last post and will share them with you over the coming days. Most of them have been sale items of summer attire in readiness for my upcoming holiday in Tenerife.
My first items are a lovely tangerine orange top with a scallop hem from New Look which I have worn with black skinny jeans, black open toe sandals and a black chiffon, longline sleeveless waistcoat with a crochet hem.
These longline waistcoats will also look great with ripped denim shorts for holidays as I think the nice weather in the UK has sadly left us.
Well the tables and chairs anyway. As some of you may know it was my birthday last week and I wanted to do something different. So a group of us went to Bistro Live in Milton Keynes. Little did I know not only would I be singled out to stand on my chair, as it was my birthday, but we were also encouraged to dance on the tables. How many places actually want you to get up and dance on their tables? I wore my new Kaliko sequin shift dress with some wedge shoe boots. I am only surprised that there were no accidents but can say the food was great and we had a brilliant night with a three course meal at a reasonable price of £25 per person.
I’ve had a splurge on buying woolly jumpers for the cold weather we have been having in the UK of late. And if the weather forecast is anything to go by it is likely to get worse.
These jumpers are from various shops, New Look, FandF, Primark, TKMaxx by GingerG and Brave Soul and are all very different and range from plain to patterned to number logos. They can also be worn casually for a last minute shopping trip or glammed up with a skirt and knee high boots or some accessories for a night out.
I took a trip to MK last weekend and just had to stop off at Primark. I picked up these tops and boots whilst I was there all at bargain prices. You really can’t beat them but you do have to get there early or be prepared to rummage around to find the good items.
I just wanted to review an app called Mallzee. It is a personalised shopping app which you can filter to search for exactly what you are looking for. My daughter was looking for a particular style and colour of dress for a holiday this Thursday. Yes, as usual, it was left until the last minute but Mallzee saved us hours of trawling through internet websites. When you have found what you are looking for Mallzee takes you straight to the website of your chosen item to make your purchase. You can also save your choices for later and even ask your friends and family for their opinion before you make that final decision. Genius.
Apologies I haven’t posted anything for a while. I have been on holiday to Tenerife and then was away last weekend on a fitness weekend with some girl friends. And also I have broken my iPad and I feel lost without it. 😥
The big thing for AW 14 seems to be checks of all sizes and colours. I have my check blanket wrap which I have already posted a while ago but another recent purchase is this check longline jacket from New Look. I have worn mine with black leggings, a Primark black vest top, as it’s still quite warm and knee length black boots which were from George at Asda two years ago. I think they make really reasonable priced leather boots that last although I will probably need a new pair for this winter.
I was feeling the mulberry vibe yesterday and wanted to try out my new blanket wrap which I’m loving for this autumn / winter. They are so versatile and will be great for those upcoming Halloween and Bonfire night parties and will keep you nice and cosy when you are stood outside in the cold night air. Mine is a tartan wrap p, which I will link below, but there are a whole host of colours and styles available in the high street.
I have teamed mine with black skinny jeans from H&M with a small turn up and black New Look Chelsea boots. My mulberry coloured chiffon blouse, again New Look, and a black and mulberry Primark handbag.
Check out these beauties I bought today £12.99 from New Look. They seem to be my shop of choice at the minute. They are black with a mock croc effect. I’m wearing these with my H&M black skinny jeggings that I have turned up slightly and a leopard print tee again from, yes you’ve guessed it, New Look.
So, I have been off work for the last week, allegedly to do some jobs in the house but I have ended up here, there and everywhere and doing anything but decorating. I was in Lakeside shopping centre on Monday, France and Belgium Wednesday and London on Friday. I managed to squeeze some shopping in and will share my purchases with you all over the course of the coming days.
My first outfit which I wore last night to dinner for a friends birthday was a pair of khaki green jeggings fron H & M, I’m loving this colour for autumn and think it looks great with black. So I wore these with a black chiffon blouse with a gold exposed zip from Primark and a bargain pair of Chelsea shoe boots from New Look.
I’m also lusting after a pair of trainers as they are the big look for this autumn winter worn with anything. I have spent the whole week trying to find a pair I like and have found a great pair of Adidas ZX 700 Contemps which are jazzed up with a little animal print.
