A Quick Heads Up + WIW - Boho & Denim

j crew chino trench skirt

Morning ladies before I share what I'm wearing today I wanted to give you a quick heads up on this chino skirt that I managed to grab in the winter sales that whenever I wear (see herehere & here) I always get asked where it's from.  Usually I have to say that it's sold out but the good news is that it's back in stock in all sizes & in the sale & reduced by 50% :-)  Click here for all the details but be quick as I predict this is going to sell out fast!  In terms of sizing I'm generally a UK 8 & I've gone with a size 0 for a fitted fit.

Back to today & it's a casual one from me for a day of appointments & pilates.  So a simple throw on embroidered boho styled top teamed with some cropped distressed jeans & trainers.

I'm always asked what I think of J Crew's customer service as people can be a little wary of ordering from a company that only has stores in London & ships from America.  Well I can honestly say I've only ever had great experiences.  Take the top I'm wearing today, after it's first wear one of the tassels fell off & I'd initially thought I could just thread it through but unfortunately I couldn't so I phoned them up & not only did they sort the problem by ordering another one in my size.  They refunded the cost of the original one whilst I was on the phone so before I'd sent it back, upgraded the shipping to fast track & also applied the same discount code I'd used on my original order (without me asking) even though it was now in the sale, which meant I even saved money too #happydays :-)  So yes I can highly recommend them - they've always been incredibly helpful in store too & returns are also simple & hassle free.

So it's been a busy morning here - son is jetting off to the Algarve for 6 days with work filming so it was a case of checking he'd got everything & hadn't forgotten anything including his passport!  

Tonight we're off out with friends to a local outdoor cinema & beer festival so really looking forward to that.  Still got to decide what to wear - I'm guessing layers of some kind as it's bound to drop in temperature as the evening progresses & of course trainers for stumbling back home in the dark!  Well when the cat's away the mice are about to play!

By the way if you meant to take advantage of Boden's 20% off discount but forgot don't panic as they've still got an offer on, it's just been reduced to 15%.  See here for all the details & remember to use code NF86 at the checkout :-)

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