Happy Saturday ladies.  In celebration of the weekend I'm breaking out a new Mango jacket I recently featured on the blog, which I'm sure won't come as a surprise to hear that having 'clicked the button' very easily slipped into my wardrobe!  What can I say it was love at first sight!

A normal Saturday for us of a few errands this morning followed by a few jobs round the house before crashing on the sofa this evening after tapas & the odd cocktail or two ;-)

How about you what are you up to today?  I'd love to hear & don't forget there's still 15% off at Boden with code 8X5H, click here to get shopping.

See you tomorrow.

  1. That jacket is stunning! I saw another one in Mango recently that I loved as well, black with red inside the collar and red accents on the sleeve plackets. Gorgeous!

    1. Yup it was love at first sight Joanna, which I knew just as soon as I spotted it on the website & like you say it's a great thickness. I'm sure I will be wearing this loads over the coming months.

  4. Quick question: which do you prefer: the one in this pic or the "stand up collar" one you featured recently? Thank you

    1. Ooh tough question, I presume the other one you've mentioned is the one with the splashes of red inside the collar etc? To be honest I wouldn't say no to both as the one I'm wearing today is navy & the other one is black & totally gorgeous. I've seen it in real life on my friend & it's a-mazing! But I'm being good as my Zara one is very similar. So I suppose it would depend on which colour would fit better with your existing clothing & likely to be worn more. If in doubt I'd order both & try them on as you'll know instantly which you prefer. I think the black one may be slightly shorter in the body too.
      Hope this helps.

  6. Thanks Jane. I've ordered both! Good tip off re the black one as I'm tall so chances are it will be wayyy to short on me but we will see! X
