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.

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!
