Happy Saturday ladies. Before I share my outfit for today I just had to show you some of the stunning new into store shoes Marks & Spencer are currently selling. Lots of gorgeousness, in fact I've already 'clicked the button' on these & these! I've put together my edit of the ones that are really catching my eye above but you can see the full range here.
Back to what I'm wearing today & sometimes (in fact most of the time!) you just can't go wrong with the classics & some outfits you know as soon as you throw them on that it works. Which is how I feel about today's look.

Now the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed that I've been increasing my collection of J Crew clothing & this navy tuxedo is one of the pieces I've recently bought. Although you may be amazed to know that when it first arrived I nearly sent it back! Yes I know I must have been having an off day as goodness knows why I didn't fall in love with it instantly especially as I managed to grab it in their sale with a 70% reduction - cue happy dance :-) I think the main reason was the lapels weren't falling correctly & needed a press. So I put it to one side & tried it on again after ironing & of course fell head over heels in love.
One top tip I've picked up since ogling the J Crew site on a regular basis is that they are constantly updating their sale section with sizes coming back in & out of stock on a daily basis so it's DEFINITELY worth a browse (see here) as you can get some serious reductions, & pieces you thought were sold out suddenly reappear in quite a few different sizes. Perfect if like me you're looking to update some of your wardrobe with more timeless classics at a fraction of their original cost & the quality & cut really is so much better than a lot of the brands on the high street. I'm fast becoming addicted :-0
So a normal Saturday with the karate run bang in the middle of day - cue sneaky lunch a la deux for hubby & I & maybe even a spot of painting!
Enjoy your day ladies & as always I'll see you in the morning.
