Dashing through the shops, with only days to go… Every year I think it will be different, that I will be different. More organised, no last minute shopping. Hasn’t happened. Next year for sure.
So, for yesterday’s playgroup and shopping trips, I wore the new Zara oriental bird scarf, with a black Gap wool turtleneck (old), Mango cream skinny cords (reduced to £20, but size down – they give!) and tan Mimco ankle boots (old). Its a bit matchy-matchy, but I liked this outfit, and while the scarf isn’t incredible quality, the print makes up for it.
My husband and I then headed out to have –too many cocktails– dinner and drinks with a friend, so I grabbed the new velvet tux blazer from Zara (its divine, I love it), a silk with lace trim Massimo Dutti blouse, TopShop Baxter skinny jeans, TopShop Anarchy boots and baroque Accessorise earrings. The velvet tux blazer is wonderful, but I think I need some better evening trousers and should step away from boots sometimes! Its a hard one, as my husband walks really fast and I struggle to keep up in heels…

Today I do not feel good, but that’s the cocktails talking. So to cheer myself up, I got out the new red Aldo Frorani boots! And I underestimated them – I do really like them, and have felt so cheered looking down at red boots (they are definitely red and not tan), as I hurried along a wet, grey path.
I wore them with a new (my God, am so profilate at the moment!) Uniqlo black heavy gauge wool polo neck jumper (reduced to £20 and its an absolute bargain – lovely quality, long sleeves and quite flattering. I got size S), TopShop Baxters (I have many pairs!) and black/white striped l sleeve Primark top. With River Island Russian doll earrings (reduced to £2!).
Is now a good time to mention that Mango has just gone on sale?? Just saying…
