What I've Been Buying In September & WIWT

These monthly confessions sure as hell roll by don't they?!

Naturally me being me there have been a few Zara purchases made including these lovely pointed ballet pumps, which look far more expensive than they cost.

Zara Embossed Print Ballerina Flats

In fact they're on a roll with their shoes this season as these mid heel courts have also been purchased.

Zara Mid Heel Shoes

Along with these ankle boots, which although high are a sturdy sensible heel & what I particularly liked is that the boots are pretty fitted on the ankle.

Zara Leather Cowboy Heeled Ankle Boots

As soon as I spotted this shirt it was love as I just love the military touches.  A great alternative to a denim shirt & perfect for layering plus the material is lovely & soft.  I'm planning on layering this up with grey as it's a really dark shade of navy.

Mango Military Soft Shirt

Something that has already been worn several times & was purchased after more wardrobe detoxing & eBaying is this beauty.

Mango Buttoned Jacket

Also I seem to have had a bit of success from H&M this month.  As I've previously mentioned on the blog this shirt had me as soon as I spotted the gorgeous collar.  I had to size down in this & as I've previously mentioned don't be put off by the length of it, it's really easy to wear tucked in.

H and M Shirt Dress

Again this blouse had me with the frill detailing.

And if you follow me on Instagram you'll already know this stunning navy & gold maxi dress was also snapped up from H&M last weekend.  I can't wait to layer it over my Marks biker jacket.  Again size wise I had to size down in this.  

Talking of H&M for anyone who's tempted there's a free delivery code doing the rounds (3143) but hurry it's only valid until the end of today.

H and M Chiffon Dress

And finally I thought I'd give the cropped trouser a whirl for Autumn.

Zara Straight Cropped Trousers

Just the one discount code for today - Wallis have 24% off for today only.  They've got some stunning pieces currently in stock.  So forgetting all my recent purchases I'm now currently eyeing up these beauties.

How gorgeous is this red dress, a real classic that would be perfect for the festive season.

Wallis W Asian Necklace Dress

And although I've yet to jump on the culotte band wagon this next look is seriously tempting me - elegant, stylish & comfy what's not to love?!

Wallis W Sleeveless Cowl Neck Tunic Jumper and Wallis W Split Waistband Culotte

If you're thinking of trying out some leather look leggings this season then these are a great buy for the money & I just love how they've been styled with this chunky knit.  Such a useful jumper that would equally look fab teamed with boyfriend jeans & trainers for casual weekend attire or teamed with a leather effect pencil skirt, such as this one (currently £21.28).

Wallis W Colour Block Knitted Jumper & Wallis Leather Effect Pull On Leggings

And this jacket would be perfect for teaming with leather leggings.

Wallis Grey Zip Jacket

As you may have already gathered I'm loving all things military inspired this season, including this cape.....to click or not to click, that is the question!!

  1. You got great shoes!

    And the red dress, the military cape, and the beautiful coat are awesome! I definitely want a cape but am still looking for the "perfect" one!

    1. Thanks Andrea, Wallis have some stunning pieces in their latest collection.
      Good luck with the hunt for the perfect cape - enjoy!

  2. Hi Jane, Love your style!

    I am currently awaiting an order from H&M after taking advantage of an online discount and the free p&p of course! A lovely soft wool tweed style jacket in an oatmeal colour , which will look lovely with skinny jeans and boots and a red and black checked shirt dress which is belted so I'm thinking of teaming it up with some leather look leggings or coated jeans!

    I love the start of a new seasons in the stores! I'm a big fan of wraps and shawls and I have an ever growing number of cashmere ponchos that just can't seem to resist! I'm currently eyeing up a number go thick chunky oversized cardigans which will be just perfect for the up and coming chilly days!

    1. Hi Andrea your purchases from H&M sound perfect & their delivery seems to have improved over recent months so hopefully you won't be waiting long for it's arrival. You've reminded me about a grey tweed blazer that I bought from H&M a couple of years ago that I must dig out as it's perfect for Autumn.
      Like you I'm loving all the knitwear & thoughts of snuggling up inside them although come December I'll be dreaming of summer tops again I'm sure!!

  3. I saw that H&M dress in the flesh today - it's gorgeous! I've been good of late - I'm not sure what's going on (well ok, the impending house move may have side tracked me slightly) but I'm feeling the need to really crack on with A/W at the moment. The search for a decent camel coat is still ongoing for me. But I'm with you on trying the culottes and leather look leggings, I need to! x

    1. It's a really stunning dress isn't it Natalie & I just love the navy against the gold pattern so warming on the skin.
      Can't wait to see how you get on with your camel coat search, although with a house move coming up it's going to be hard to resist not thinking purely interiors there's so much lovely stuff out there!

  4. Hi Jane - would love to know your ebay name to see what you're selling. Also any ebay tips would be great - I usually end up just bringing bags to the charity shop as I don't really know how to go about selling!

    1. Hi Zara I think eBay is a real hit & miss affair. The best piece of advice is obviously be totally honest & I tend to not be over optimistic on price as I think everyone is just looking for a bargain but if you're selling a few pieces it's surprising how it can mount up. Also I find it a lot quicker & easier to list via the app on my phone.
      Hope this helps.

  5. I always love seeing what you've bought at the end of the month Jane! Some great investments shoe-wise....but my favourite piece by far is the maxi dress! Think I'm having a maxi moment! xx

    1. I can't wait to wear it Michelle as it's a lovely style, colour & fit :-)
      Jane xx

  6. I've had a busy month too - too much to consider listing I fear!! Love the maxi dress. Lynne xx

    1. Can't wait to see what you've bought Lynne :-)
