Bolt of the blue

Since I am all rugged up in my warmest clothes – cashmere, Heattech and my decidedly practical looking North Face coat – the only real variety I could easily add this morning was via different earrings.  I probably look a bit bizarre heading off to playgroup with chandelier earrings, but as a nice lady who helps run the playgroup said to me “if you don’t wear them to playgroup, just where are you going to wear them”?  Too true.

Today’s outfit is a navy cashmere Pure Collection cardigan, the Zara super skinny jeans (the 2nd pair), white Primark long sleeved top and Kurt Geiger ankle boots.



Chandelier earrings from Oliver Bonas (definitely a store worth having a browse in for pretty costume jewellery pieces.  Especially if you like the delicate look of Alex Monroe, but are thinking cheaper.  Obviously, the quality reflects the price, but they stock lovely items).

Now, you may remember that a while ago I went to the My-Wardrobe SS13 preview, and was quite taken with the cobalt blue Pistols.  Reader, they are in stock (exclusively at My-Wardrobe, for £350)!  And Daily Mail, only slightly behind, has done an advert/article on them today, although they seem to be labouring under the illusion that there is a waiting list.  Mmm, not yet there isn’t…

I am a practical girl, though, and think that, since I destroy suede (one of my many gifts), I will be looking to these Opening Ceremony Brenda deep blue glitter leather chelsea boots (£254).  Leather is the better choice for me.  And these have a little flash to cheer the soul.


Brenda is very versatile, as she also comes in a pretty blush pink, if you prefer: WOOPTT800002BLH
