Well it's rare but I actually paid full price for something! I managed to sell a few items from my wardrobe so took the plunge and ordered the jacket I loved so much from a few posts previous. It arrived perfectly wrapped and I was in love all over again.
The very same day I went on an impromptu mum's night out. I wanted to go out but was tried and didn't feel like thinking too much about my outfit. The jacket was the perfect solution - I literally added it to my jeans and breton I was already in (they weren't dirty from the day, promise!) changed to some ankle boots and added a colourful clutch. It is a great lightweight cotton, just right for now when the temperatures are starting to drop and you need something else.

The back embroidery detail is still my favourite part. It just lifts the monochrome look and adds some colour and fun to it.
|NB the front flower needs a little light pushing into place after being boxed if you're ordering from the web.|
I'm hoping it's going to be another piece like the little cotton cardi style one I purchased from them last year that really just adds to a basic outfit. I like these sorts of pieces, they just don't require a lot of thinking. This is the one from last year that I wore again today whilst working with a client. It has washed so well and is so comfy to wear.
