The Prada Skirt & The M&S Sandal

When ever my sister is home (she currently lives in Dublin) she insists on 'popping' to Bicester Village as it is local to us.  My sister is possibly more of a shopaholic than me......!  On strict instructions not to over spend - self imposed, I do have a wardrobe full of clothes and there is only 7 days in a week, I naturally had a browse.  Prada is one of my favourite stores there, I can always find things I like, from the jewellery to the handbags and wallets, shoes and clothes.  I have purchased the odd few clothing items before in the sales - nothing like the prices you would expect, you need to hunt people!  And hunt I did last month.  They had a mega sale on and this skirt was down to £50, yep, £50 for a Prada lovely.  


Now it's not my usual style, I am more of a shorter skirt kinda gal purely as I'm not blessed in the height department and don't like to feel swamped in clothes.  However, I really really do want to wear more skirts and dresses - it's an ongoing saga, I just love my jeans and they work for me in my life perfectly.  This skirt had pockets - I love a pocket in a skirt, was fully lined and semi worked with what I had on that day.  I couldn't leave it behind so it came home with me.


I'm yet to wear it.  Something has stopped me, 1. perhaps for fear of a cat or child ruining it, 2. because there hasn't seemed to be a time when I could.  This may indicate it was a bit of a mistake however, it's Prada, so I will forgive myself and find a way to incorporate it into my daily life.  Watch this space!


Finishing the post with the shoes that I was wearing when I tried said skirt on.  I saw them on Alex's blog a while ago and loved them.  They have had a marmite response in my household, it stopped me from wearing them for all of a few days but I since haven't got them off my feet.  They are from M&S and were reduced to £25 in the sale, leather of course (yes, you know me and my material obsession).  I love the bling, I love that they are a more structured sandal and I had no black in the sandal department.  I had been hankering after them but they sold out quickly when they went into sale.  I was shopping with a client and saw them on the shelf.  Ever the professional that I try to be, I hid them behind a few other pairs and prayed they would still be there when I finished.  Firm believer of fate and what's meant to be - they were still there!


Hope everyone is enjoying the much longed for sunshine.  Posts will be a bit sparse due to the young ones eating up more of me than normal and a few little vacations planned.  I have a back log of posts to share with you so they will be coming through in dribs and drabs!

  2. OMG Natalie - I would have flown over and bought it myself had you not nabbed it. A stunning wardrobe staple that you'll have for years. And the sandals are fabulous too - great buy and who listens to the husband anyway when it comes to shoes?! x

    1. Fingers crossed, that's the plan! It's not the kind of item that's going to date very quickly. I'm thinking I need to not listen to him full stop .... ! x

  3. That is a good price for a Prada lovely and I'm sure you will find a way to mix it in to your daily wardrobe. I find jeans far too easy but I pushed the boat out yesterday and wore a skirt - it felt good actually but that's partly because I chose a skirt which I was comfortable in. And it too had pockets. Have pockets, will jam hands in to them!

    1. Yes I'm all about the pockets too - maybe it's because jeans have them and it makes me feel more comfortable if the skirt does too?!?! x
