Morning ladies it's that time of the month again where I've collated my favourite pieces from Marks & Spencer's.  And since we're fast approaching the end of September, as you'd expect there's lots of gorgeous new in temptations.

As you can see from the outfits I've put together above they've got some stunning jackets this season, which are perfect for dressing up or down be it work or play.  All of which would make timeless additions to any wardrobe that you'd find yourself reaching for time & time again.  

I love the understated navy blazer that you can never go wrong by teaming with denim & a crisp white shirt.  Not to mention a simple breton, or cashmere jumper as I've shown above.  Plus if you're anything like me you'll have a weakness for a military jacket.  Which is ideal styled with cigarette pants for work or a smarter occasion as much as it with jeans & a stripe tee or even a maxi dress, like the outfit I've put together with the floral tiered maxi.

Looks 2, my midlife fashion, marks and spencer, marks and spencer wool blend coat, marks and spencer lace round neck half sleeve shell top, marks and spencer fluted hem ponte pencil midi skirt, marks and spencer stiletto bow satin two part court shoes, marks and spencer twin pocket zipped moto jacket, marks and spencer asymmetrical hem tunic midi dress, marks and spencer love box clutch bag, marks and spencer block heel ankle strap court shoes, marks and spencer pu biker jacket, marks and spencer round neck poplin sleeve t shirt, marks and spencer printed a line midi skirt, marks and spencer stiletto heel side zip ankle boot




Equally Marks have some stunning dresses & I was instantly attracted to the stunning asymmetric red midi dress, that I've shown above, when I was last in store.  The cut & fit are perfect & of course it had me at the gold buttons - I'm a sucker for that little bit of extra detailing!  You really wouldn't need any jewellery to accessorise this outfit just a fab pair of shoes & a timeless clutch.  Plus it would make the perfect party season number.

You'll also notice I've styled a couple of midi skirts, which if like me you love your biker jacket are perfect for teaming with a simple crew neck jumper & trainers.  Not to mention comfy & a great alternative to jeans that we can all find ourselves living in.  I particularly like the cut & fluted hem of the black skirt I've shown above & I think we all have a soft spot for stars & tulle thanks to Sex In The City & Sarah Jessica Parker & whilst I've styled the star skirt with a biker jacket it would equally look great teamed with a blazer & paired with a simple cami.

Looks 3, my midlife fashion, marks and spencer, marks and spencer luxury pure cashmere heavyweight ankle socks, marks and spencer pure cashmere textured scarf, marks and spencer knot pearl necklace, marks and spencer pure cashmere slash end gloves, marks and spencer cashmere leather gloves


I don't know about you but this time of year I always want to nest.  I think it's something to do with the darker nights, lighting a fire & a scented candle or two, so that little bit of extra luxury that gives comfort & warmth will always catch my eye.  Needless to say this is the time of year when cashmere firmly comes into it's own.  I'm lucky enough to have quite a few of Marks' cashmere jumpers hanging in my wardrobe & I'm always recommending them to my clients.  Plus if you're able to purchase them during a friends & family discount weekend they're even better value.  

I've picked a few luxury accessories featuring cashmere above.  From cashmere wrist warmers (which are also available in black) to cashmere lined leather gloves (available in 4 different colours) that little bit of extra luxury really does make a difference come those cold dark mornings & nights & if you've not tried wrist warmers then do as you'll be hooked!  Marks even do a cashmere dressing gown, which is my idea of heaven.  If you've not taken a peek at their collection then you can see their full cashmere range here.

Needless to say it was hard choice deciding which picks to choose this month but in the end I decided to choose pieces that I know I'll be reaching for in years to come & that also represent that little bit of luxury & comfort.  As you can see from the pictures below I just couldn't resist their Pure Cashmere Striped Round Neck Jumper together with the Cashmere Leather Gloves.  In terms of sizing I went up to a size 10 in the jumper, as I wanted a loose fit & comes up a little looser than their plain cashmere crew neck jumpers.  For the gloves I picked a size medium & they fit perfectly.

I also needed to update my old pair of grey mohair wrist warmers so these cashmere ones are just perfect.  I also picked these cashmere socks as we're flying out to Dubai in the next few weeks & I thought they would be ideal for wearing on the plane, not to mention of an evening back home.

My other two picks are the skirt & boots I'm wearing today.  As I've already mentioned this type of skirt, whilst shown styled for more of a smarter occasion on Marks' website I find perfect for casual doing days teamed with a biker jacket & trainers.  In terms of sizing I'm wearing a UK 6.

I probably don't even need to explain the boots do I?!  I mean you know what I'm like when I spot a bit of leopard print & the beauty of these is that the heel isn't too high & there's just a flash of Bet & yup I was hooked by the zip detailing too.  I think these are going to be worth their weight in gold - dressed up with skinny jeans, worn as I am today or even with my new black maxi dress & a tuxedo jacket for a night out, the choices are endless but be warned these beauties are only available online & are selling out quick!  I generally find with Marks' shoes I'm able to size down to a 6 or 6½ but I'm actually wearing a size 7 & whilst I may have perhaps been able to get away with a 6½ because of the pointed toe these are actually the best fit for me.

So ladies what are your thoughts?  Have you spotted anything to get you wanting to 'click that button' or perhaps you've spotted something in store that's missed my eye?  As always I'd love to hear your thoughts & if you haven't spotted these already these shoes are amazing & such a fab price!

Enjoy your day & as always I'll be back in the morning.

  4. I think it’s going to prove a really versatile skirt & so easy to dress up or down.
    As for the bag it’s a golden oldie from Zara that must be at least 5 years old. Still love.....there’s no getting me away from Bet lol!
