New Outfit Post - Hot Pink, Tweed, Leopard Print & Greys

So how's everyone getting on with all these discount codes that are flying about left right & centre?!!  Luckily for our bank account I was otherwise engaged yesterday having a fab time in London with the girls - lots of bubbles, laughter & a lovely afternoon tea were exactly what the doctor ordered - to say we had lots of fun would be something of an understatement.

However this morning seeing as I was awake at silly o'clock I simply couldn't resist taking a peak at Mango's latest offerings.  Well.......with a fast approaching birthday not to mention Christmas it would have been rude not to, especially seeing as there's currently 30% off!

Now I was 'quite' good in that I only looked at their 'new in' items & as you'd expect there was lots of goodies to tempt me & all perfect for the coming festive season.  Starting with this lovely classic off the shoulder maxi dress.  Perfect for the coming festivities but also idea for summer too.  I think this would look stunning teamed with a wider belt (I'm thinking one of my studded elasticated ones) & heels for a party then sandals for the hols!

Love this wrap 'V' neck blouse.  I find this type of top so useful for wearing under a jacket as there's no collar to have to worry about but equally they look fab dressed up with some wax effect or leather trousers too for a night out.

As you can see I was mainly drawn to all things black & this lovely suede chain bag is no exception.  Classic, elegant, practical & stylish - what more could you possibly want?!

As with the off the shoulder dress I've featured about this jumpsuit would be equally perfect for Christmas/New Year & summer holidays.  I just love the neckline & fit.

Another thing I am really liking at the moment is oversized shirts.  Perfect for wearing over leather effect leggings to cover my bum but equally perfect for layering under a sweatshirt too.

Can we ever have enough little black dresses in our wardrobes?!!  The simplicity of this crepe dress means it's perfect for dressing up of an evening as well as hiding that extra portion of Christmas dinner ;-0 Not to mention teaming with a biker jacket & chunky boots or a longline cardi & chunky scarf for a more dressed down look.

In fact it would be a hard call between the black shift dress & this lovely crossover/wrap style.

Another wardrobe staple would be this lace pencil skirt which when teamed with a cami or the wrap blouse shown above would look effortlessly elegant but can so easily be dressed down to get your use in the day with a denim shirt or sweatshirt.

Finally how about this simple black cape - perfect for slipping over your evening dress on your way to a party but equally fab for wearing over your biker jacket or blazer when layering up.

Ooh temptations, temptations....what's a girl to do?!!

Back to reality today & the normal karate run but hoping to have a bit of a quieter day after London yesterday.

Decided to wear my Boden hot pink tweed blazer today, which I've teamed with one of my Woolovers jumper & my Seven Boot Lane boots.

I don't know about you but that sofa is sooo calling my name, our first Saturday night in for the first time in four weeks & I can't wait to crash in front of the fire & watch Strictly later.

Have a fab Saturday, I'd love to hear if you're tempted to hit Mango's latest mega discount or are all Mango-ed out?!  If you are clicking the button don't forget to use code 5BLACK4.

See you tomorrow.

  1. Love, love, love the Mango one shoulder maxi dress...I have a shorter version from there that is a couple of years old which could well tempt into getting the longer version as I do love a maxi!! So far, so good.....I have sat on my hands and ordered nothing!! How long will it last though?! Lol! Love your outfit of the day Jane!! xx

    1. Michelle it's gorgeous isn't it......I could so order everything but like you I'm 'trying' to be good.....although I'm sure I'll slip off the wagon ;-)
