I’m just starting to emerge, wincing in the light, from my meningitis fog, so I’ll dip my toe gently back into blogging by showing you a few new acquisitions.
Since I’ve relaxed my spending ban I have picked up a couple of bits, though I haven’t gone too nuts…
Much has been made of the J Crew Tippi sweaters, and I didn’t really get the hype – they just looked like another crew neck jumper to me. However, I saw this fish print version on a stylish friend and she looked so fabulous in it I had to snap it up.
When I had it in my hands a couple of days later (super quick delivery from the US) I understood the fuss. The merino is deliciously soft and light, yet super warm, and the cut is extremely flattering. I love the quirky print, though next time I think I’ll get a plain grey. Excellent value at the sale price of £40, I thought. I won’t be wearing it with my Hawaiian print shorts though – sorry to disappoint.
My next buy was this Baukjen Ruched skirt. I had the maternity version from Isabella Oliver and it was so useful, so when Baukjen emailed me a random 43% discount code I ordered it in the grey.
I bought this Hobbs dress on a trip to Bicester. I had liked it at the full price £110 so I was made up to find it there for £30.
The last cheeky buy was a bit more of an indulgence. I got a bonus at work and wanted to make sure I bought something special before it was swallowed up in the litany of child related expenses that seem to absorb my salary like a particularly effective sheet of kitchen roll. I was half toying with getting something sensible, like a pair of sturdy boots when I clocked these little bad boys in Gucci at Bicester….
