A/W17 ~ a work in progress!

It's taken me a while to find my stride this season. I was a bit lost as to what the trends actually are to be honest. And to be fair looking at what's out there trend-wise I just don't think they are going to suit my suburban lifestyle anyways. I had an interesting conversation with my mum recently where she noticed how whenever we are shopping that I tend to gravitate towards the same pieces everywhere I go. And she is right. A case in point here. With 3 out of 5 below. This is my fourth shackett......but the leopard print!! I am holding Erica Davies entirely responsible for this purchase! I bought this in my usual size, Small.

my kinda heaven!

I am a total convert. I've pretty much always championed High Street when it comes to jeans. However after a huge try-on of different of MIH jeans at my current favourite shopping destination Kilver Court Village Designer I have been won over by the fit, cut, and of MIH. And they aren't that much more expensive than the High Street when you can pick them up at Kilver Court.
I'm excited to announce that I am running a competition over on Instagram. To celebrate the lovely new refit that the MIH department has had at Kilver Court. You can win £200 worth of MIH vouchers to spend at Kilver Court. Which is an amazing prize I think you'll agree!

jump start!

Last weekend I posted an outfit on Instagram that received a lotta love. A jumpsuit/boiler suit/all-in-one. It's been a go-to item ever since I got it in February.....for the princely sum of £19.99! It is perfect with flats for everyday but stick it with a pair of heel for an evening and it just elevates into a whole 'nother look. It's more than paid for itself as it's still the one thing I grab when I'm in doubt as to what to wear. Obviously my Mango one has long disappeared from their website (though I spotted a couple of sizes on the outlet a few weeks back, sadly none left now) but I've been busily researching what there is available on the High Street. So here goes.....

transitional treasures @shoeaholics!

Even though we are only just halfway through September there is no alternative but to look towards Autumn and get some of those transitional purchases in....as boy do we need them! At present we seem to be experience elements of all four seasons in one day. It looks as though sandals are wardrobe bound for the foreseeable.....but it's all good as I've a couple of new additions to see me through this treacherous spell. Kicking off with these fab Michael Kors Conrad sneakers....

the workwear changeover challenge!

The1st September has been and gone. Once that date gets struck off the calendar I feel a bit of a berk in my High Summer get-up and so I start packing it away. Anyone else do this or is it just me? So what to wear to work during the inbetween-y weather? It's definitely cooler in the mornings and evenings but the days can still be lovely. It's conundrum time....ready to let go of Summer but not quite ready to embrace Autumn. I think I mentioned in a recent post that I've usually purchased a least one coat (my main Winter weakness!) by the end of August but this year I really am trying to resist the urge to peak too soon with A/W clothing as we seem to be in sweaters, boots and coats for most of the year! This time around I'm trying to find a few investment pieces suitable for the tricky transitional phase and beyond. I've been having a little try-on with a few lovely pieces from Winser London....everyone one of these classic items are just perfect for investment changeover but are the kind of clothing that will be in your wardrobe from season to season.
First up is this fabulous black crepe jumpsuit. I love this fabric it's so easy to wear it feels great on and it's a win-win with little or no creasing! The drawstring waist is such a brilliant feature it really straddles that casual/formal element as in it's fab with flats, trainers or boots for daytime yet stick some heels in your bag for the perfect day-to-evening wear. A statement jacket and a funky clutch and you're good to go!
