This is one band wagon I have jumped on with both feet. Seeing Alex from the Frugality in it convinced me. Truth is, I’ve been feeling particularly unstylish and a £35 jumper looked like it might perk me and my wardrobe up.
Here’s me in the grey the day is arrived (with H&M jeans and shoes). Headless as is my right after the week we’ve had (if you get the flu jab and give it to your kids at the same time, prepare for a few Armaggeden days)
Back to the jumper.
The grey stays though. I am wearing it today with Topshop boots and H&M jeans.Here with my Cos grey coat. The sleeves of the jumper are fluted so really need to poke out of the sleeves of your coat. You might remember these Topshop boots I bought at the end of the summer. I’ve never worn them but the gold bit on the front has tarnished too badly to sell for anywhere near their original cost, so I am wearing them (similar in gold here in the sale) I may also have seen Alex in them and am desperate for inspiration at the moment when it comes to footwear.
I have been having a problem with shoes. Nothing feels right, not trainers, not boots. My beloved studded Lucky Charms don’t go with ankle cropped jeans, my trainer collection just isn’t cutting it. Maybe I just need it to be Spring. I have my eye on the pale pink Karters. I love all my other Topshop loafers and I think I have clearly demonstrated why pink will be on my feet and nowhere else (apart from my lips maybe)
My eldest has been home with me this week and when she saw me looking at these pink heels she rummaged in my wardrobe and came out with these. Topshop pink heels for a few years ago. Not the most modern shape but result!
Zara top, H&M jeans and below with the Cos green wool cardigan (the Zara top is too revealing for day wear otherwise, for me at least)
Finally some things I’m thinking about.
Gucci gear is everywhere at the moment. It’s way out of my league so I’m doing my own nod to it without the price tag.
These Gucci Jordaan loafers are sublime. These aren’t quite as amazing, but then they’re less than £40. I haven’t bought them as I’m hoping Topshop will do a proper loafer version rather than slippers but they look good, don’t they!
Now, if I could just find an affordable version of these!
Let me know if you have any thoughts, particularly footwear inspiration.
