21 August 2016

next's best things!

So....the holiday is over, the school holidays are almost over and the weather has taken a turn for the worse. However, Next have come to the rescue! This landed on the doormat on the other day....and the timing could not have been more perfect!
When I had five minutes earlier, armed with a cuppa I had a good flick through this. I don't normally buy that much from Next but after being introduced to these gorgeous boots below by this lovely lady on Instagram I decided to see what else they have on offer this season and I was pleasantly surprised when I realised here were the humble beginnings of my A/W16 wardrobe!

Next pixie boots (these are described as suede but they are pony hair leather upper!)

None of this looks to be available to order until late August! Gah....but I want it all now! This sweater is top of my wish list as I love the print.....everyone loves a bit of leo.....and those are my three favourite colours right there! Black, khaki and red! What's not to love!


More red....yup, I've become addicted over the summer to all things red. Love this Chloes-que style sports luxe top! I have a star print maxi from last year (similar here) which I will wear under this with my Nike Blazers!


I haven't yet succumbed to the embroidered jeans trend but I am very taken with these cargo trousers (these are available now). 



Next have also come up trumps with this gorgeous metallic pleated skirt in pewter!


Next pewter pleated skirt, also available in green and rose gold

I've set my sights on a couple more gorgeous tops, more of the going out variety....both would be fab with ripped skinnies for date night ;0)





I shall be researching this little lot once it all becomes available to order....so I shall be back in the very near future with my findings!

Just going to leave you with one more A/W16 gem that I stumbled across in M&S......which is right back on my radar after some of my magnificent sale bargains!



Now my A/W16 wardrobe in well underway! Have you purchased anything yet?

  1. Snap! I sat down with the catalogue the other day, and let's just say we have a fair few things in common on our wishlists :-D Your leopard boots are amazing! I indulged myself in the autumn preview a while ago, and managed to get myself a rather fab pair too with 25% off. (Well I could hardly refuse at such a bargain price, could I?) I didn't think I'd be wearing them so soon, but with the weather having taken a turn they might be appearing sooner rather than later!! xx

    1. Next have some seriously good stuff don't they Becky....I keep checking to see if it's available to order yet! I accidently ordered the chelsea boot as well as the lower pixie boot and now I'm torn....can't I justify two pairs too?! :o/ xx

  2. Great photos, so many fab summer outfits and as summer is going on and on here in SW France, in the 30's all of this week, I wish I could go out and buy everyone, love the white top with the denim shorts and the maxi red and white dress. But then I also love the leopard skin boots! But I don't want Autumn yet!

    1. Luckily we just had a couple of dodgy weather days over the weekend....but we are in for a lovely few days so we can still get some more wear out of our lovely summer gear! Definitely not ready to dive headlong into Autumn yet! xx

  3. I haven't even thought about next season yet :( I'm never that organised but wow - Next has really surprised me! I don't buy much from them but pretty much everything you have shared I would ear and buy! Can't wait to see what it's like in the flesh, will have to pay them a visit now x

    1. The thing is Natalie you know the good stuff just will not hang around! I have to admit though...at the moment I haven't seen much else that floats my A/W boat apart from the stuff I've seen in Next and M&S! I obviously need to put in a lot more research! ;0) xx

    1. Hi Vicky! The next top is a silky feel material with knitted neckline, cuffs and welt. I went for my usual size which is a 10 and for me it has just the right amount of casual slouch! It is gorgeous on.....I love it and can't wait to wear it! xx
