New Purchases + WIW - Keeping It Simple

Morning ladies I thought I'd share my recent purchases with you today as it's been a couple of months since I last posted on what's got me 'clicking the button' due to the items purchased in February being either sales buys with no stock remaining or preloved pieces.  But fear not this month I've been purchasing pieces that are still available, making them perfect for sharing with you.  

So the first item to get me clicking were the above sparkly shoes that I'm blaming on the boys buying me these beauties for Mother's Day plus a 20% discount code landing in my inbox.  I definitely love a ballet pump, not to mention a bit of sparkle so these beauties will be getting lots of wear.

This next item has literally just arrived & I love it - monochrome with animal print & swish factor meant this maxi skirt was ordered in an instant!  It's high waisted & although partly lined I will definitely wear an underskirt underneath.  Size wise it's quite fitted so if you're inbetween sizes I'd suggest considering sizing up & a fab long length (in places it sits just above the floor on me when I tried it on without shoes) so if you're petite it would need altering.  But it's a real beaut & has some lovely stud detailing on the waist band that looks much nicer in real life to the pictures.  Perfect for teaming with a biker or blazer & even layered with thermals & a jumper in the colder months (something similar to yesterday's outfit) so a great all year round item.

J Crew Billie demi boot cropped jeans


I've also invested in the above cropped kick flare jeans.  Something I have in normal blue denim that I wear a lot.  I just love the fit & cut of the leg so when they released the black version it was no brainer decision for me.

Zara shirt with pockets


Now my love for grey is well documented so when I spotted this pale grey oversized shirt I knew it would make a great item for pairing with distressed denim & a tan.  Plus it's ideal for laid back days & I find shirts that are made from tencel seem to fall beautifully.

Now I can't think I'm the only woman to find myself being drawn to shopping bags, especially now we get charged for carrier bags!  So when I spotted the above slogan tote I thought it idea for popping to the shops for the odd few bits & pieces.  Plus due to the shoulder strap & depth it will also make a handy casual handbag/beach bag.  I mean who doesn't love a slogan, especially when it says smile :-)

Then during a recent 20% discount weekend I just couldn't resist the above stripe cashmere jumper. Timeless & striped, what's not to love & need I justify any more?! ;-)

Finally I've also been sent a few new bracelets from Lola Rose from their Bangle Bar Collection, which consists of a range of stackable friendship bracelets made from semi-precious gemstones that come beautifully presented & packaged.  I chose the ones shown below but you can see their full collection here.  Definitely worth a peek if you're looking for a gift for a loved one or friend or even a treat for yourself.  I love the idea of stacking lots together for summer & creating a real impact that would look stunning & be a real eye-catcher.

Back to today & it's a casual Sunday morning here, we've woken up to quite a bit of snow this morning so nothing too exciting on the agenda part from some more puppy training.  So a slogan sweat, jeans & Barbour are today's essentials.  Then I'm off, weather permitting, to an afternoon tea hen party later, so as long as it's not cancelled I'll pop my outfit on Instagram.  Luckily for me the party is only next door but due to all the snow we've had I'm currently wondering if it will be postponed due to other guests & the caterers not being able to make it.

It's going to be a late one for me today as fingers crossed our son gets back later tonight.  Again because of the weather I'm just hoping his flight will still be running & that we can get to pick him up. I can't wait to see him & hear all about his weekend away :-)

Enjoy your day ladies & as always I'll see you in the morning.
