a quick scout around the sales.....

has resulted in rather a long wish list for me! It's all coming from one particular store too.....which part of me now wishes I'd swerved as I fear this fleeting visit to Urban Outfitters is really going to cost me dear! I'm just gonna wade straight in and show you everything I love and am currently coveting........sigh, be warned it's quite a long list!
First up, I've been considering adding a duffle of some sort to my coat collection and this could well be the one...

 


This would be perfect for those rainy school run days, it's the kind of coat I would get loads of wear out of and it would be a fab alternative to my beloved Topshop parka......sounds like it's sold doesn't it!

I know my lovely friend has been waiting for this gorgeous Selected Femme cardy to go in the sale....I've now tipped her off that it's been reduced by 70 quid! I know she will really rock this with her retro Adidas Samba's!!



Moving along swiftly to tops.......this is another wardrobe must have!! This black blouse would fill another hole nicely.



I've seen a lot of this style top on Instagram.....a favourite with some of the lovely French ladies whose style I adore.



We could all do with a bit more luck in our lives and so this little top has caught my eye!



I'm still loving my skirts so far this season and this suedette one could be a perfect addition to my collection.



OMG! There are just too many lovely boots to choose from.....I've had trouble just limiting myself to just 3 choices here. The over the knee boot seems to have really come into it's own again this season, not a style I've not tried yet but I am sorely tempted by these!



How gorgeous are these tan knee high.....a real nod to the 70's, perfect to finish off many a boho look!



Now these were what I went instore to hunt down, not in the sale unfortunately but Urban Outfitters currently have another promotion going on, whereby if you spend £75, you get £10 off, spend £100 and you get £15 off and a whopping 30 quid of if you spend £150. So I went in search of these to try on, to no avail but now I shall order online and possibly add a few more items to my basket in order to take advantage of the fab money off offer! I believe if you sign up to their newsletter you will also get free delivery as well!



Last but not least are a few little bags I've spied....another department where I could go a little crazy! How gorgeous is this duffle?



This bag nearly came home with me, but I dithered.....however it could now well be topping my basket up nicely. Love the colour and you can wear it crossbody......perfect!




Phew....that would make quite a haul so I need to whittle it down to what I might actually need. I often overlook Urban Outfitters but they have some great stuff at the moment and if you are looking for some cool gifts they have a great selection, in particular I love their jewellery. Is this a store where you would normally shop? Are you tempted by any of my picks?

  2. I like the pointy boots you went in for but couldn't find. Followed by the duffle coat. We have a large Urban Outfitters in Leeds and like you, I often forget to go in it but they do actually have some lovely pieces. Maybe I need to pay another visit soon.

    1. Hmmm.....I think the pointy boots could be my first purchase of 2016 Sue. I'm going to hold out for those a bit longer incase UO do any more sale reductions. Had I known how much wear I would get out of my Topshop Bardot boots I may have spent a bit more and got a better pair.....which is how I got tempted by the UO ones, aren't they a fab High St tribute to the Acne Jensens? The duffle coat is top of my shopping list if I can justify the purchase of another coat to the DH!

  3. Gosh, I love all of them, that cardi has to be my favourite ( I am so into chunky cardis this season) and those tan 70s boots, all of it is fab. I am now knuckling down to some serious Christmas shopping as I am seriously behind. Love your outfits Michelle I always scroll back to that dark red Cos sweater you bought when we were out, I will definitely be buying that in the sale, it looks fab on you xxx

    1. The cardy is lush isn't it Frances? Urban Outfitters do have some really amazing knits, I saw a gorgeous red nordic looking/Christmas sweater which was also very tempting! It is all too easy to get sidetracked with the Christmas shopping when there are so many lovely things around!
      I have you to thank for the purchase of the COS sweater....what a wardrobe staple that has turned out to be....fingers crossed you can bag it in the sales! xx

    1. Thank you Lynne....the tan boots are gorgeous aren't they! They kind of remind me of some gorgeous vintage ones I saw yesterday that I saw Laura Fantacci was sporting on Wear it today! ;0)

  5. Those Percy boots are a great alternative to the Acne Jensens! I have that Zara cardigan too and love it - I'm afraid I've just gone crazy in Zara right before the sales start!
