Topshop Sale Purchases (& Necessities!)

 Thank goodness!  I've finally found a going out dress!  £25 in the sale thank you very much Topshop!  Love the bright green.  It's fitted without being too structured.  I am just not suited to the body con dresses with short mini's out at the moment, they make my child baring hips look even wider and I'm too old to do too short!  I thought it may be a little too formal but the colour brings it into night life outings perfectly (pictures don't do colour justice!).  I love the zip up the back as well, adds a little depth and character to the dress.  It feels comfortable on (a must) and I like how I can add to it with accessories or keep it really and simple.  I am thinking of pairing with my All Saints killer shoes as there's black in the back, I think I will keep with that in the accessories for now. 

Tried to get a better picture to show true colour!  A lot lighter than full pictures suggest!

Another Bicester Village bargain!  (18 months ago now though!)

This £5 jumper has been worn far too many times already!  I previously tried it on at full price, £36, and thought it just hung on me.  Which to be fair it does, however with skinny jeans I love the way it hangs!  (Sorry Mum, I know you didn't!).  It is slightly longer than I would normally wear but it just feels like a comfy every day jumper that has some substanance about it.  Well it was a little predictable of me - stripes again!

I have been trying on Baxter jeans for the last 2 years (apart from 9 months pregnant) and struggle as feel the shape varies.  My friend J and I have been wearing them for years but found recently they have started to creep higher up our backs.  Thankfully this lighter pair fits perfectly.  I wanted some lighter jeans for the Summer months (although we aren't actually having much of a Summer are we) and the wash on these was just right.  Not a fan of the faded look across the thigh, I am far to short to be highlighting it, I feel these fitted the bill.


  1. Good pairing of the dress and heels, bet they will look great together.

  2. Thank you! If the weather stays bad a black leather jacket will also be added!!
