The Winter Sale Purchase Worn For Summer

I will admit that my shopaholic tendencies do sometimes lead me astray, especially in sales times and sometimes I buy and it's still sat there a year later in my wardrobe.  I say sometimes, we all make mistakes and it's worth the risk as I don't make that many.  This leads me on to the little gem below I purchased in the Topshop Winter sale after Christmas and previously blogged about here in January.  I had my eye on it last year but it was £45 and there wasn't much need for it in my wardrobe nor to spend that much money on it.  Fast forward half a year and it was mine for £13.50 (I got an extra 10% off as it was my birthday month!).

Kimono, belt & jeans; Topshop
T-Shirt; Vince
Sandals, Ash
Watch, Tag
Unintentional that I had three pieces of Tophsop on!  The belt is so old but leather and has stood the test of time

I'm aware it is more of a beach cover up but felt it was a little too nice for my girls to cover in sand, sun lotion and ice cream.  It will be worn that way one day but I wanted to appreciate the embroidery and beautiful vibrant colour all to myself on a day out first.  Anyone else dug out a purchase they bought in Winter for the Summer recently?  (Or is it just me who does this!).

  1. You look fab, I love that cover up/kimono! I am also loving your hair - the dip dye (I know there is a proper word for it).

    1. Ah thank you! I've been having it done a while but it's got lighter and lighter. Very tempted to chop it all off though at the moment, but I always chicken out! (PS think it might be called 'ombre effect') x

  3. What a bargain, Natalie! I love a bit of neon on my beachwear - I had high hopes for the Boden Corsica kaftan this year, but it was a real disappointment, so I had to make do with a neon-striped beach bag instead! All but one of the kaftans I took to the beach this year were out of season bargains, the winter is such a good time to look for them! And I think you're right - yours is too good to confine to beachwear just yet. It looks fab! xx

    1. Me too - I used to be so against neon but it's slowly grown on me. x
