I have to say I am kind of excited about getting my new wardrobe in motion, I am over sweating it out in maxis now. If I had a pool at home things would be different but alas this is not the case. So today my Mango herringbone jacket has come out to play! I searched the earth for this fine staple item and I finally found this one new with tags on eBay at the height of our heatwave. Whoop for my forward thinking!
My shoes are just adorable and remind me of Micheal Jackson so I they are even cooler in my eyes. They are from Next and I am ready to bust these bad boy tassel beauty's all over town.... (school run...)
The jeans.... oh the jeans. My husband looked at me in 80's comeback horror (no taste) when I showed him these but ladies let me tell you now, if you are a bit too much aware of a mum tum situation then these are for you! Yes I get that these are aimed for the crop top regalia look but frankly I don't too many crop tops these days, but I do like a tuck! Where are they from I hear you ask? Topshop (naturally) and they are the MOM style priced at £40. The name is kind of apt for me... Think cheaper Levi's..
The top is a nice lightweight knit from Topshop, this is a car boot find at 20p (I kid you not) but you will find styles like this all over the high street at the A/W collections are hitting the rails. The Next one I tried on below is a very nice option..
Then we have the bag. Bags this A/W are structured, ladylike and have those hard handles that can dig into your shoulder if big enough to get your arm through. Patent is also going to be big. I'm not brave enough for a patent skirt (yet) so this bag is a compromise. It was also a French Connection bargain from Boots! Not only because a) it was a gift but b) its was filled with very lovely French Connection smelly's, so thankyou Boots and thankyou Dad!
I took a quick nosy around the local Next and this A/W things are looking good, here's a quick wishlist!
The skirt below is meant to be the Black way around but I loved it inside out! Mad I know but cut away the labels and well.... sorted!
Skirt as above the correct way around! Jumper £32
The picture does no justice.... Skirt £22 the jumper I can't find online but I think it was £32, comes in many colours and great length for with leggings! Remember this is tucked in...see pic of my outfit below with it hanging on the side.
Last two want's on my wishlist...a kilt and lace up heeled boots (or witches boots as the hubby says!)...
as always you can find me on instagram!
