mango crush

I’ve got a whole lot of love for Mango at the moment. Although we don’t have a Mango store in Bournemouth, I think I can live with the small Mango selection in our House of Fraser for my usual lunchtime browsing.

They’ve just released their new season lookbook and it couldn’t be more me. Last season, Zara stole the crown and I immediately dashed to raid their Christmas sale rails for some winter bargains but Spring/Summer, Mango has got it so right.

My first and favourite pick from their new collection are these gorgeous leather sandals. The heel is not too high, but high enough to lengthen legs in those gorgeous spring/summer dresses. Black sandals go with almost anything, but if you’re feeling more girly, they also have a gorgeous pale pink here.

Ever since I spotted this jacket on the lovely Aimee from Song of Style I knew I had to have it. At £100 it stretched my budget, but you can get it on sale now with 60% off! Its a great spring colour, adding a dash to any outfit in any weather.

I spotted these cute booties in the sale section of Mango’s website for a bargain £30. The weather is relatively unpredictable in Spring, for example last year we had a scorching heat wave in March then record breaking floods in April so a pair of casual boots are a wise idea for all eventualities of the Great British Weather.

All hail my addiction to stripes! Over the sale season, I have accumulated 8 different stripped tops (and counting). This is no exception. I am totally in love with this dress!

What are you favourite picks from the Mango SS13 collection?


on the run

I finally did it! My collection of Converse’s is growing. Welcome to my wardrobe my lovely white all-stars –

Pinterest is again proving it’s worth and I’ve been browsing some Converse related looks all afternoon.

What do you think of my faves above?

baby its cold outside

Today saw the first glimpse of winter, snowfall. Unfortunately it didn’t touch us here in Bournemouth but many parts of Dorset, Somerset and Devon were blanketed in sheets of snow.

A few things I’m loving at the moment:

1. These gorgeous Regent Hunter wellies and H&M cardigan. I love the combination of colours and textures, making it easy to wrap up warm but still look fall-fashion-ready.

2. 50 shades of fall. Winter isn’t all about black on black. This year brighten up your wardrobe with these stonewash River Island jeans, plum tote from Zara and military style mac from Rare London. And if the sun does come out, always make sure you’ve got some  classic Ray Ban aviators stashed away at the bottom of your bag.

3. Boot and Hats. Hats and Boots. These are my key accessories for fall. Leather ankle boots that can be worn so many ways and a woollen fedora to keep you snug. Perfect.

I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday. I’m babysitting my 18 month old Godson and having a 10 minute break from turning my living room floor into a car racing track!
