Gap Girlfriend Jeans (outlet purchase but current equivalent)
Primark Plaid Scarf (in store)

I know it's Chinese New Year and I'm supposed to wear red. I have a bit of red in my scarf. Sorted.


I thought it might or might not be useful to tell you more about the pieces I pick and wear. It's probably quite boring but there's probably some weird people out there like me who like to know these things.

The & Other Stories jumper, I bought myself for Christmas from the hubs. I went in store, tried it on, liked it, paid for it and wrapped it up and labelled it from the hubs. It might not seem a very exciting present but I wanted to choose something I was certain of and had a use for and all importantly wouldn't return! I'm wearing a size small and it's a nice slouchy style and you can't tell on the pic but it's actually a rollneck and it's the perfect jumper to go over those bias cut skirts when you need a bit of bum coverage.

The Gap Girlfriend jeans - this pair are my neater fitting pair. If you're in an Gap outlet buying these jeans, you do have the choice of waist sizes, 27, 28, 29 and so forth. Online, you get sizes 8, 10 and 12 and so on which means you don't get the inbetween sizes. I've got the jeans in a size 27 and 28 so when I say I've gone down a size - I've only gone down half a size. Size 28 is the equivalent to a UK10 I find in Gap.

The Office Armour Boots - I bought these last year and declared these were the ones after trying and returning a gazillion pairs. I really only started wearing them this year and I did think I'd made a mistake buying black boots again despite not really getting on with them but I think it was a matter of finding the right jeans to wear with them The Gap jeans work fine with the boots after I hemmed them to the right length. How did I hem them and keep their original hems? See my post from a few years back here

And I spotted a few nice bits which have appeared online recently which would all work together well with what I already have. Love it when new stuff comes in! I'd have that pink coat in a jiffy if I had any chance of carrying it off. #titch
