New Outfit Post - Monochrome

Happy Saturday :-)

Anyone else wake at the same time on a Saturday even though they know they can lie in for an extra hour or two?!  I seem to have the one time setting & even though I'm still wide awake at 5:30 I must admit to secretly enjoying that couple of hours snuggled under the duvet & having the luxury to  browse the internet knowing that I can just kick back & not worry that I should be doing x, y & z!!

Another busy Saturday of early morning errands, shopping, karate run, brewing of blackberry vodka (from our blackberry picking earlier in the week), trying out the new soup maker, gardening & quiz night.  Oh & hoping to sneak in a mid afternoon siesta so I can stay awake for the quiz lol!

Seeing as the temperatures were a little cooler yesterday & we're out early I'm back in my comfort zone of blazer & jeans today.




Jacket - Zara
Top - Tesco
Jeans - Zara

So anyone up to anything special today?  I'm thinking I may have peaked at the previous quiz night after being able to answer the question of which musical instrument Sooty plays!!!!   You never know we may, just may not make it to last place tonight....wish us luck!!!  I'll post my outfit for tonight on Instagram.

Happy Saturday!

  1. Loving the shoes they look good with so many looks, after being a bit indecisive ordered a pair, they are now out of stock so very pleased I did. Now the bit I hate waiting for them to arrive. Tracey x

    1. Hi Tracey wow that was lucky getting in with the shoes before they went out of stock!! I'm loving mine& am hoping that they're going to look as good with opaques for winter so I can wear skirts in the day more without having to risk tripping up in heels!! Fingers crossed your parcel arrives soon :-)

  2. I love this outfit Jane - I need to sort myself a blazer out - still not got round to it! Sounds like a very busy day you have in store - I'm donning my gym gear shortly for pilates and then a run on the treadmill. Hoping the weather brightens up later - this dull grey cloud is doing my head in! x

    1. Thank you :-) I love the fact it's got the cutaway bottom half as it just makes it that little bit different to a normal blazer/tuxedo.
      Hope you're having a great weekend.

  6. Loads to do I feel worn out just reading! I feel like a nap at the moment if I'm honest! Fab look for your errands today. Oh and I just ordered the other M&S dress, my grandchild won't have a pram at this rate lol x

  7. 5.30, surely that's still the middle of the night?! ;). I cannot find a plain black blazer that I like. It needs to be comfy, long enough to cover my bum & available in a 16 to cover the boobs, any ideas? X

    1. Lol Sarah unfortunately not for my ever racing mind.....I need an off switch, in fact I think I was awake around 4ish but trying to go back off & in the gave up! Have you seen this blazer? http://tinyurl.com/ndgyrtd it looks quite a good length & not a bad price either.

  8. Love this classic black & white combo Jane! I did manage to squeeze a lot into my Saturday.....got the food shop out of the way first thing then biked it into Bath with the little one for a play in the park and a spot of shopping in town afterward! Turned out to be a perfect day! xx

  10. What's more annoying is that during the week I have to practically drag the children out of bed, but on the weekend they are up by 7am like clockwork!! Love this outfit Jane, fab blazer! x
