I’m back…well, partly – it’s going to take my heavily pregnant body a bit of an adjustment to get fully back into work mode but I’m here in principle!
It’s always hard to come back to work in January as everything is on sale, but most is already sold out – yet I always enjoy a challenge so thought I’d find few savvy pieces that will last you for the season/months ahead too (how good is the Mango coat?!).
I’ve tried to pick some pieces that will stand the test of time in your wardrobe (always a bit of leopard print in there), but will also elevate your existing pieces – after all, a sale bargain isn’t worth it if it doesn’t excite you when it arrives through the door, is it?!
And there are a few investment pieces like the Rixo dress, as although expensive, this will last and last and be so useful for events, weddings, or even with trainers in the summer…
And what did I buy? Nothing…I’m still being good, and January is that hideous month for us where we owe building insurance, contents insurance, car insurance, MOT and car tax – never a good idea to move house in December/January – it makes for a very bleak new year!
But the good news is the house is getting there, there are just a few builders left finishing tiling and getting through the snagging list…we’ve started to prime and paint a few things on weekends and the deadline is looming.
I have, however, been eyeing up this dress from Next (new in) – thinking it might be a good pregnancy piece and for afterwards too with sandals this summer….
