Honestly, I feel like someone was trying to tell me something about blogging recently! Internet crashing, Blogger not posting posts then loosing saved ones, I'm a technophobe at the best of times but this did test me to my limit. So in an attempt to remember what I was talking about, here goes. Still not impressed with what's out there at the moment, but I have a few things I'm after. I had a plain grey sweater on my wish list from a while ago but then saw the one below from The Outnet earlier on in the year and it just looked a lot more appealing. I had a old Gap camouflage one that had just gone to Heaven so I gave this a whirl. It is by Zoe Karssen who makes very good sweaters (I know as I have one already by her) however be warned, this comes up short so it went back.
Then the lovely Michelle linked to this one below from Uniqlo. At £14.90 it's a really good price without spending a ridiculous amount on casual wear. This may be popped onto my Christmas list actually (or Birthday as it's not far after!).
I also homed straight in on the one below from G-Star Raw at their press day the other week. The quality was outstanding, a really good thick sweater but it's not out yet. I will be keeping a watch for it when it does though.
I then spotted these Topshop boots in a local pre-loved shop. They are £79 full price but were £60 and in my size, new. They aren't my usual style as they are slightly higher up the leg - they are called a sock boot on the website. I feel like I wore something similar about 20 years ago in my teens - that block heel, that ankle length height - anyone else with me here?!?! That did stop me in my tracks slightly (as well as the bored 3 year old who wouldn't even allow me time to photo them). I'm not 100% convinced, nor in the market for 'more boot's' as my husband reminds me but I loved the soft brown leather and they looked great tucked into my skinny jeans. Maybe if they go down some more I will take a risk on them.

And lastly, I need a party outfit! I am so late on this one, I usually try and pick something up earlier on in the year so that there's even less chance of someone rocking up in the same outfit as mine. Not quite sure where this year has gone and I now have less than two weeks until a Christmas party - oops! I have a very old pre second child sequinned skirt from New Look when they did their Limited Edition range. I'm going to dig that out as a back up and see what I can rustle up. Anyone else sorted their part frock out and been super organised?
