Sales Purchases + WIW - Distressed & Oversized

Morning ladies & happy Sunday.  So today I thought I'd share with you my personal sales buys.  As I've mentioned previously I try not to get too easily swayed by all the sales emails pinging into my inbox & instead try & just purchase a few of the items that have been on my wish list.  Of course that's not to say I'm never distracted from the 70% off emails but I am trying to stick to a plan, even if at times I fail ;-)

So what's got me 'clicking the button' during all the madness?  Well first off the above t-shirt.  Whilst it may not look like anything special it's one of those go to items that I just know I'll be reaching for time & time again plus seeing as it was reduced by 60% it also didn't make it that much more expensive than one from the high street so my justification to the hubby was it's a now or never purchase.  Personally I love the slouchiness of the fit & the scooped neckline.  Not to mention the batwing ¾ sleeve that due to it's fitted cuff won't move when you slip a jacket over it.  It can't just be me but I personally hate tops that rise under a jacket & make you feel uncomfortable.

The next item is something I've had my eye on for a good 12 months or so.  Again reduced by over 60% & the last one available & in my size I just couldn't resist, especially as I just happened to stumble across it on ASOS.  In my  head a 'meant to be moment' ;-)  Unfortunately like I've said I took the last one but there are some still available on the above link, although not quite as heavily reduced as mine but still a good buy.

J Crew tie neck top

This next item wasn't in the sale but it's another classic that I already own in cornflower blue & love wearing so before it becomes sold out I've clicked the button.  In fact the design is so popular it's currently on back order, with mine  due to be shipped at the end of the month.  I just love how it's been styled in the above image for a relaxed night out but equally it will be perfect for dressing up to.

And finally when I spotted this breton reduced by 70% I also 'clicked the button', another wardrobe staple, with that added bit of detailing that I love that was too good a bargain not to invest.

Now I'd like to say that's all the purchases but there are a couple of others that unfortunately have completely sold out so I can't link to them.

Back to today & I'm bringing out that Zara oversized knit again & this time styling it with a pair of my distressed cropped jeans & those Marks & Spencer ankle boots.
