New Season At Next And Some Boden

I spied these boots when my eldest dragged me into Next today and was pleasantly surprised, how trendy have Next now become?!  Even on my way out I was eyeing up some of their jumpers at a reasonable £20.  I am not a huge Next shopper, I think it's because I used to only associate them with work wear many moons ago.  I do pop in and out and always seem to grab a few bits in their sales (£7 leather animal print sandals below).  As TK Maxx is next door I pretty much would always choose to spend my pennies in there as feel I get better value for my money due to most of it being designer.  However I really liked these so thought I'd share them with you.

Black peep toe ££60

£58
I had a bit of a result in Topshop the other week.  I replaced some more old skinny Baxter jeans with new £15 ones and fell in love with this shirt also £15, their sale was fab.  Not the ideal colour combo, had I been organised and shaved my legs (this is my blog so no holds barred) I would have worn tucked into a pretty skirt mixing a masculine clean lined shirt with a floral feminine skirt.  Alas hind sight is a wonderful thing but I'm honest enough to share the photo.  The shirt is not as bright as it appears in the picture.  It is so comfortable and is available in a variety of colours, look under 'Chambray Shirt'.  Not sure how I managed to get it in the sale as it's £29 now but I'm not complaining!

Shirt; Topshop
Belt; Tommy Hilfiger (TK Maxx)
Chinos; Ralph Lauren (TK Maxx)
Sandals; Next
My bargain of the day (Homebase again!) This £40 water and sand kit for £5!  Missing a plug but I've found one to fit, I couldn't not share this steal.  The girls were very happy (and wet) today!



I feel like I'm done with the clothing shops for now (I am not setting a date).  I've hunted down the sale bargains, there's none left, I bought them all.  I then moved on to decorating the lounge and finding Le Creuset in the turquoise colour (to match our glass tiles in the kitchen) at TK Maxx, I think I've just about got it all now.  And todays obsession?  Food.  Nigella and Jamie's been on the TV, I am now planning her chocolate cheese cake when Nan is over on Wednesday.  Next week I think I will be on the A/W wardrobe - well I hope so anyway.  

Is anyone else like this or is it just me who jumps from clothes to home to food to clothes etc?

One final sale bargain should I not have moved on to food would be this from Boden, now £35.40 and buttoned all up the back, love it but no, not buying it!

  5. Love the black peep toe.... Any suggestions on what to wear them with?

    Also love the boden jumper but not the price.

    Finally got to TK Max the other day but as per daughter aged 9 got pennies spent on her, so worth it though, she's really taking an interest in clothes :). Sadly didn't see any of those fab chinos - so versatile xx

  6. I am totally in food and home mode now, I followed another blogger's example and reassessed everything that I have bought this summer and it is a little shaming!

  7. I could actually see the black peep toes with a little denim skirt number. The wooden heel dresses them down so denim would work well with them. Failing that a rolled up boyfriend cut jean.
    I've been back several times for more chino's, I guess they were a one off lucky find! But that's what TK Maxx is all about. Keep trying, it may not be the chino's but will be something else.
    I can not start to go through the shaming, your braver than me!

  8. I must take a look in Next - great looking boots! And I love how you've styled the shirt and jeans - that belt is fab! x

  9. You have to buy that sweater! There must be a discount code floating around somewhere? With your dark hair it would be simply stunning!
