Look Again






Oh my. Oh my. Oh my. I'm in love.




With the trainers. Got'cha!

The frock dress thing is nice but the trainers - they're fab. And with more than a nod to the infamous Golden Goose ones without going all the way. Unfortunately they're not online yet from what I can gather - believe me I trawled the site a few times. Don't you just hate that? Now I have to play the waiting game till they come online.

Hope it's not too long. Give me a shout if you spot them.

Raw Pink





I fell head over in heels in love with these pink Gazelles. This was definitely a heart over head matter. I decided I was going to keep them. Then I decided I wasn't. Then I was. Then I wasn't x 100. I packed them up to go. And pulled them out again the next day. They're still with me and I have a mere day or two left before the ultimate decision.

Anyway, the fact that they're totally unpractical pink suede didn't stop me buying them. The fact that they are totally impractical pink suede and the weather has been pants is making me have second thoughts. The fact that they sold out just like that on ASOS which is where I got them, makes me want them. The fact that they are pink and the weather is so so pants at the moment is definitely not helping. Will these just be fair weather trainers? Will the daft dog step on my feet. Can I live with that? Probably. Because I love their pinkness. Their raw pinkness.

I have to say, these are comfier than the black pair I bought last year and returned. The toe shape is a little rounder too. They go with more than I thought in the wardrobe and I can tell I'm doing a sterling job convincing myself to keep these. If I do, you will see me in these soon. 

When it stops raining.

Cosy Cardis



If there's one thing guaranteed, it's that Primark actually knock out one piece of knitwear each winter which I nab and then live in. Chances are you and half of the penny saving female population probably have the odd piece in your wardrobe. And 2016 is no different with me nabbing this one :


Primark Cardigan (in store)
Prettywire Camisole

And this one :

Primark Cardigan (in store)
Isabel Marant Etoile Shirt (old)
Zara Bag (old)


And what you might notice is that the two cardigans are actually the same - just a different colour! Well I liked them so much, I thought I should get them both and then I will never have regrets over the one I never got. For once, I prefer the olivey khaki sludge coloured one over the grey but you know how useful a grey cardigan is so obviously I had to have them both! :)


-----------------------------


I did have a quick nosey around to see which other cardigans looked nice out there. Here are three of my favourites.

I hovered over this blush pink one from Next as I do love the colour. It's quite a loose weave but definitely has that lovely slouchy relaxed vibe about it. It's the kind of cardi that you bung on, on Christmas morning over your pretty jim jams to open your presents. #yeahright  However, if you're a bit of a titch like me, the proportions of this one (if you're after this blush shade) might work more in your favour with it being a shorter length.




Now if I hadn't nabbed the grey Primark one, I would have this Mango one in a shot as I love the fact it has pockets. I don't really stick my hands in my cardigans that much incase I overstretch them but I like the fact that it has pockets all the same. I like the dense texture of this one - it's more structured - almost like a jacket. It would probably look good worn like a kimono with a close fitting denim jacket underneath - extra warmth!




And I have to admit, this is a fabulous autumn berry shade. This will be the colour hit you need in your wardrobe if you can't quite go red but you want something along those lines. If you look on the actual site, you will note the texture is almost fleecy - which means it's cosy ... which means it's a winner!




So just three picks, not too many (it's been a long day). There are loads out there - you'll know yours when you see it.
