Navy and mint

I wear a lot of navy, an awful lot. I used to wear a lot of black but unless its for going out, I just don’t think it does me any favours in daylight.   And with navy I love mint green.  I have a yen for these Paige Kylie jeans









But I don’t know, past experience has shown that pale jeans do my thighs no favours.  I find them more unflattering than white jeans, am I alone in this I wonder?  But those jeans would look so nice with the Dune wedge giraffe sandals that I am still obsessing over, and my navy Tippi J Crew jumper.   See how I’m thinking jumpers because its still rather chilly out.

When I was looking at sandals in TopShop I saw a lovely lemon jumper but the fabric was very synthetic and I suspect would not have washed well.  Yes, I have turned into my mother.  But I do rather fancy something in primrose as again it looks lovely with navy and also white.   A quick search produced this pretty jumper from Pure Collection which I have pinned in anticipation of the sales









I also saw WIT posted a photo on twitter of her wearing this top









I’d wish listed this a while back and of course now its out of stock in my size, I really, really want it.  Honestly I am a marketer’s dream – show it to me and then dangle out of my reach and oh how I desire it.

And my final wish list item is this bracelet I saw on the Pink Peonies blog









The price is fairly reasonable I think but I do wish Stella & Dot did the occasional code.

And finally, today I am wearing









Many, many layers.  River Island Amelie, Beige Pistols (bargain from Outnet last year), Gap jumper, Farhi linen biker and Lily & Lionel bloom scarf.

Next please

Honestly I am such a copycat.  When I saw Eve wearing her new Next grey quilted jacket I just had to get it.  I am a sucker for a biker jacket as long as its not leather – perverse I know.

So despite it being absolutely arctic here today I still wore it.









I did have to wear it with a vest, Boden breton and very old pink pashmina but I was fine. OK I was a bit blue but really one does sometimes have to suffer for one’s fashion.  The trousers are J Brand majors which are incredibly comfortable but weirdly I hardly ever wear them.

If you’re after a jersey biker I think this one from Hush looks gorgeous









So whilst I was doing an order from Next whose online service is pretty amazing to be fair – order by 10pm and arrives the next day – take note some retailers.  Well I  popped this into the order too









And you know its really really nice and of course I look just like the model in it.  (Really hopes my irony is coming through today).

I love dresses for the summer but am a difficult shape as I have no waist and am really over maxi dresses now so hoping this will work well with my Swedish Hasbeens for those lovely hot days I’m looking forward to.  Yes, I fully expect to wear it twice this summer.

It will also work well with my old Farhi linen biker jacket









This was one of my best buys last year and I’d really recommend it if they do a version this year.  Dorothy Perkins did a much less expensive version that was also pretty good.
