A few purchase confessions!

This post contains affiliate links and gifted items.

I haven't done one of these for a while. I always feel a little in limbo at this time of year which is most definitely because of the iffy weather....one minute it's nice.....the next minute not so much. I've completed my Spring/Summer wardrobe changeover and that always leaves me feeling a little overwhelmed as I've accrued such a lot of stuff! However I have been clearing my wardrobe regularly and only holding onto the piece that really spark joy. I've been updating my Pinterest boards.....what an eye-opener! Makes it so much easier to see where there are gaps though. Those gaps are a whole 'nother post now that I've identified them! But in the meantime this is what I've been buying.
Subconsciously I've been avoiding jeans lately. I'm just not that into them at the moment. But trousers ....now there's a different story! I've bought a couple of pairs of Mensy style pants in neutral colours (from Zara and Topshop) and early last week my mission was to track down some wide leg trousers from Gap that I'd seen on a couple of influencers early in Spring. I had actually tracked them down in my size but imagine my glee when I found these in Bershka at a fraction of the price of the Gap ones. They really are sparking joy!

Some days you just cannot beat a slogan tee and jeans! The weekend has started early for me. Yay! I usually work on Friday's but I swapped my days this week meaning I get to take advantage of an extra long weekend!

Statement co-ords!

You gotta love a co-ord! Looks like a jumpsuit when you wear these 2 pieces together but they are super versatile as you can mix and match with other pieces too!

Sometimes it's just all about how a dress makes you feel.....and I'm all for feeling tall and slinky ;0) This little number is going to take me to a variety of events......summer ball, a day at the races, a wedding party and a garden party. I tell you it's ticking a lot of boxes!

Dresses and dad sandals!

I'm documenting this outfit as one of those outfits my husband hates! He's referencing the sandals....but I love them as I reckon they really edge-up the outfit.

Sunshine makes for happy dressing!

Long may this lovely spell of weather last.......I've got a lot of dresses I wanna wear! I bought this one  in Lanzarote from Mango and it's currently on offer for just £25.99! It has pockets.....cue a happy dance! Mines a medium (Spanish sizing?!) which I believe is equivalent to a UK size 10.

Stepping into sandal season!

#AD - part of paid partnership with New Look.

So happy that sandal season finally feels like it's upon us! It's just so hard to choose which ones to get isn't it! Both of these are leather and common under 25 quid! Decisions! Decisions!

What's made it's way into my wardrobe lately.

Ok. Let's start with this dress. I've had it since Thursday and this is the third wear. I wore it out to dinner with a friend on Thursday night, round to friends for a takeaway on Friday night and to Asda to do the food shop today. Hands up I'm rubbish at getting photographic proof......but let's skim over that and marvel about how versatile this shirt dress is!

Befuddled by the weather!

Anyone else finding it hard to get dressed at the moment. I blame it on the weather. I feel in limbo.....it feels a little too early to get the sandals out and there are a few new bits in my wardrobe that are begging to be worn but it's just not quite warm enough yet is it? Looking back at what I was wearing this time last year it looks as though this feeling hit's me at roughly the same time annually. Today I resorted to jeans.....I haven't worn a pair in over a month but then, they are my safety net when all else fails.

Every woman's three favourite words.....

This post is in collaboration with Swindon Outlet - a voucher was gifted to purchase product.

........THAT'S ON SALE. Ain't that the truth! I love a bargain. Especially an outlet shopping bargain. Outlet shopping means I get to purchase in places that are normally out of my price range. It's win-win situation.
