This is a funny time of year; in the last 24 hours we’ve had blazing sunshine, rain, snow and sleet. It’s cold and spring feels a long way off.
I don’t know about you but I’m definitely getting a bit bored of what’s in my wardrobe. My uniform is getting dull. I’m going to need some new black jeans soon as my current go-to pair are becoming too faded. But they are not urgent. But also I’m not really quite sure what might pep things up. Do I actually *need* anything (except a jumpsuit – see last blog!)?
December is a tough one on the finances. January is harder. For one, it’s January. And two, we also have some hefty annual household bills and Tax Returns to finalise – dull doesn’t come close. It made me have to apply blinkers – and a look but don’t touch approach to shopping.
But dear reader, I have found a few fabulous things that might just tempt those of us that have been in financial hibernation to celebrate pay-days and invoices being settled and celebrate the arrival of February.
So. I happened upon this the other day. I keep thinking about it. The only thing I can see wrong with it is that I don’t actually own it. Yet.
Cos Leather Shopper bag £125
2 – I love the whole ‘Oh I just threw this on’ almost-effortless look of this cardigan and jeans ensemble. I require more effort these days… but love this cardigan and layered necklaces.
Kitri Sana Green V-neck front cardigan, £50, was £85
3 – I’m slightly obsessed with this blush tone; I’m using it alot in the day job at the the moment. Gorgeous wrap-around-fold-it-twist-it-belt. How good would it look with the green above, and the indigo?
Gap Circle Buckle Belt £29.95
4 – Because this cold is unrelenting… one of these might be useful for layering…
M&S Heatgen thermal long sleeve top £18
5 – This giant cable knit jumper looks DELICIOUS and warm.
Kitri Belle Ecru Jumper £89, was £149
6 – This satin skirt would be a super useful addition… worn now with the jumper above (& below) and long boots, in the summer with a tee and trainers. Oddly, I was drawn to the black, but it’s also available in wine and navy.
Finery Alberte Satin Midi Skirt £59
7 – You know that this jumper would also be amazing with the above skirt and anything you already own…
Arket Striped Merino Wool Jumper £69
8 – Staying with the current crush of Arket… stunning dress – keen to know what kind of hold-in-able qualities the belt/tie might have… beautiful colour.
Arket fluid long sleeve dress £99
9 – LOVE this. Numerous possibilities.
John Lewis & Partners And/Or Rosetta Stripe in Black/Pink £59
10 – All you need is…
