Bringing Out The Legs!

Back to school runs this week - where on earth has the Summer holidays gone?  Christmas is just around the corner now!  I looked in my wardrobe and realised there were clothes I haven't had the chance to wear yet and now possibly won't until next Summer.  Ok, I may have a large 'ish' wardrobe but still, I don't feel like we've had the heat to wear half of it.  With that in mind, I made an effort to wear t-shirts I'd forgotten about with jeans (and a thermal vest!) and braved it, even giving my legs an airing!  I admit, I was a little cold but I was adamant I was not going to put on a coat - much to the bewilderment of my Mum and Sister.  

A quick changing room selfie as my sister didn't get a good one of me to use! 
Jumper; Sandro
Leather skirt; Mango
Boots; Topshop
My Lizzie cat loves to get in on my mirror action!

In between school runs and a few hours work I managed a quick dash around some shops as is obligatory when my sister comes to town.  Now for some reason, I was so controlled.  To the point of actually really not wanting to buy a thing - I have been a little bad of late so it was about time.  I even turned down a silk (yes silk, you know me and my good fibre composition obsession!) Sandro top heavily reduced to £30.  I talked myself out of it as I have a fair few white/cream tops plus it was reduced as marked and a button missing.  It didn't deserve my money.  I loved this Alice Temperly dress below but it was too long and the sleeves too frilly.  Apart from that - gorgeous!


Now on to some dreamy items which were never going to be purchased, but I 'papped' them just to share their beauty on my blog!

I love a cross body bag, these Gucci's were just as fabulous in the flesh.  Reduced to around the £600 mark
I didn't think this Givenchy was bad for £162, it was a fair size and I thought the print was a classic so would last you for years
Chloe pumps - amazing!  Too pricey to remember!
Anyone else feel they are holding back on the shopping front or is it just me?  I am holding out for a Indian Summer so not heavily purchasing for Autumn/Winter yet.  I am however making a little shopping list in preparation!

  3. You look so good in skirt/dress and boots. I tried this look the other day because you always make it look so good and I just looked daft. Why is that?!!!!!!

    1. No way - I don't believe it did! I am such a jeans person, I feel so comfy in them I find it hard to wear skirts and dresses unless I give myself the time to think about an outfit. x
