Morning ladies & happy Christmas Day!  It's just a quick one from me this morning as there's lots to do & the big day itself to enjoy.

I haven't done a 'new purchases' post for a while, mainly because a lot of my recent purchases have either been preloved buys or bits & pieces for our new home but in recent weeks there have been a few 'clicking the button' incidents which I need to share with you.

Firstly something that I featured in my 'My Midlife Loves' a few weeks ago & that's this great foldaway shopper.  Not only is it super stylish, it's also a lot bigger than your average foldaway shopping bag so this is perfect for keeping handy when out & about & on market days if I misjudge just how much my shopping baskets will hold!

The second item to find a new home in my wardrobe wit this knitted button detail vest, which I've already featured a couple of times in my 'WIW' posts.  I've found myself drawn to this style for a while & just loved the extra detailing with the buttons plus as there's no bulky sleeves it's perfect for wearing under some of my more tailored coats & blazers.

You'll know by now how much I love the 'off the shoulder' style top/knitwear so then next couple of new additions won't come as any surprise.  These long sleeve tops are a great quality, oversized & perfect for wearing with skinny jeans/leather leggings plus they're a great weight - think in between a t-shirt & a sweatshirt so fall beautifully.

Likewise when Hush launched their sale preview I was quick to snap these off the shoulder jumpers up.  Whilst oversized in style, as I like to wear mine with leather leggings I decided to size up in these to a small for a more casual fit & look.

Finally there has been a couple of Zara purchases with this oversized long length shirt, which comes up rather large so size down.

And then this velvet jacket/top, which for me has a real Isabel Marant feel that I just love.  Personally I love it dressed down with a simple pair of jeans & heels but equally I will wear it with a maxi skirt & cigarette pants for more smarter occasions.

Back to today & it's all about the chill factor & enjoying Christmas Day with our friends & in our new home.  Whilst I've decided to dress up this dress is perfect for not being restrictive & is comfy to wear but no doubt later on in the day it will be swapped for some comfy loungewear :-)
