I thought I would start a new strand on the blog, ‘What I Bought This Week’. Can you guess what it’s about? The clues are there. One would hope that it won’t be any every week occurrence, plus I’m using some artistic license, ‘What I bought over the past fortnight or so, give or take’ doesn’t quite have the same ring to it does it? Contrary to popular belief I can actually go for a week without buying new things, although to be fair, not that often…
Most of the items I will have worn on Instagram, so you can always check the Shop My Instagram feed, but I’ll try and do one of these with direct links every few weeks with current items I am loving…
First up, these Striped Trousers from Mango. Love these! they fit really well, (I got size Medium, I am a 12) good length and great fabric. Sometimes white trousers show your pants but not these bad boys!
To go with these, I bought this Black T‑Shirt also from Mango. It’s like totally organic man, so kind of makes you feel good, plus again, a great fabric. I got Medium and it’s a perfect loose fit.
Last week I bought the Navy Blue version of this skirt online from M&S, but when I went to collect it instore, I saw this version and I just liked it better, so I took the other one back. This one I plan to wear with white trainers and a white T‑shirt once the weather perks up again. Fits true to size, although you might want to go down a size if you like the waist more fitted.
Super, Super comfy sandals from &Other Stories, will be wearing these with pretty much everything once it stops being rainy and cold.
A worthwhile charity jumper from Orwell & Austen that is also gorgeous cashmere AND totally cool. A win win. I think they only have size small left at the minute, but check back and see, I’m sure they will re-stock soon. They do the BEST cashmere! I bought a size large.
This bag from Davina Mulford was a gift, it’s a fantastic size for when you need to cart a load of stuff around. It’s a really classy understated design and made from excellent quality leather. It’s the perfect everyday bag. in fact I have indeed used it everyday since I got it.
Bought this black top from COS yesterday at lunch time. I tell you, it’s dangerous working on High Street Kensington, COS is literally one minute from my desk. I thought this top was a smarter alternative to a long sleeve T‑shirt. I’m thinking of wearing with a long necklace, black trousers and a fancy shoe. I love the puffiness of sleeves. A good looser fit. I bought my regular size 12.
My friend Zara lives in Cornwall and makes really cool silver jewellery. I bought these earrings from her Etsy store. They will go great with that black Cos Top!
Finally, I stocked up on my current favourite shampoo from Philip Kingsley. Purple shampoo and conditioner is a must if you have bleach blonde hair. It knocks out the yellow and gives you a creamier colour. Perfect for lazy people like me who can’t be arsed to get their hair seen to very often.
