I think I mentioned a few posts ago that I'm trying to stick to a strict budget and buy a few really decent pieces a month (I took February off after the January sales and started back properly in March!). So I've already shared this & Other Stories merino jumper but I hinted at the other purchase, my second pair of Ash boots! They weren't planned, I saw them in the Next sale at £80 down from £160. I wasn't 100% sure due to not seeing the colour in the flesh so as it was free delivery to the store, I popped them in the basket.
They weren't the colour I was expecting and weren't perfect, the tassels had fallen off on one side, the ring was missing, some slight scuffs on suede but Next's Customer Service team were faultless in rectifying this and I ended up getting them for £30 - WOW! A trip to the shoe menders later and just like my black Jalouse one's, they are rarely off my feet. The colour is great for coming into Spring, I am ridiculously pleased with them. The colour varies in different lights so taken a few snaps to try and show them.

I still adore this Miss Selfridge coat I bought in the January sales, initially I thought the fur hood was a little too much but it's grown on me so much, I just love it.
April has started well with the Bargain Buy currently featured - the Boden grey merino. I have a breton on back order from them but my goal this month is bottoms. I've never enjoyed shopping for them, I always struggle but I need to make an effort as I live in my favourite Topshop ones and even I'm getting a little bored right now. Will update next month on my April buys!
