I took a trip to Bicester Village for a new rain proof jacket, thankfully North Face had replenished their stock before the week-end crowds hit. I grabbed this for a bargain £39.90, needless to say due to our current climate - I have lived in it! I love that the hood can tuck away neatly and it is so easy to roll up and put in a bag. I can hand on my heart say this is 100% water proof, it has been thoroughly tested!
I have been after the large North Face gilet for a while now (currently have a very slim one which I can wear under coats). At £100+ I have held off, but my luck was in again and managed to get one for £46.90 - I had to emphasize this point to the husband who thought I was crazy at buying such a garment now! I love this bright cheerful colour and find gilets so handy with the children as there's not so much bulk on my arms weighing me down.
Reiss had a great sale on, a coat for £55, 80% wool, but not in my size. I even took my sister back a few days later but the size came up large on her.
Finally I found these little gems from Mulberry. All leather, £89 if only they fitted! I am normally a 4 but they came up large.
