I bought this [ m.asos.com/mt/www.asos.com/Whistles/Whistles-Lace-Stripe-Top/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2097919&cid=6139&sh=0&pge=4&pgesize=50&sort=-1&clr=Nude whistles]] top. Very pretty with black skinnies.

Toasted I adore your Marant blouse. How does it wash and what's the sizing like?
Bag and shoes also great, of course smile

Pinkflipflop it's not heavy at all but still nicely warm. Haven't worn it with a dress but I think it'd work.

Sonotkylie Mon 27-May-13 17:33:59

Thermals.
Oh and those Gap slim legged crop trousers ... But not together

Toasted what about this mac? www.theoutnet.com/product/357392

Pinkflipflop Mon 27-May-13 14:08:42

Ohhhh I love the Em and Me jacket thingy!! It's looks gorgeous smile

Is it thick/heavy? Have you worn it over a dress?

CountBapula Mon 27-May-13 08:08:13

I bought this merino wool knitted jacket thingy from Me & Em. It has that Chanel bouclé jacket vibe. It's beautiful - really comfy, smart without being formal, and great with jeans and a tee on bloody freezing cooler days.

I bought some of those too (though not because of this thread ) blush

I've bought three pairs of these, they are so good

Only good if your calves are fairly slim, judging by comments I've seen on MN, but the cut and the quality are amazing

LaTrucha Sun 26-May-13 22:14:43

I ordered it!

It's unfortunately polyester rather than silk, but I also love this dress from Hobbs. Unusually for Hobbs, I had to size up.

Have worn it to a work event with a navy cardigan, and out for a meal with DH with a dark denim jacket.

novelsituation Sun 26-May-13 07:20:12

Sorry, Jigsaw, not Whistles

novelsituation Sun 26-May-13 07:19:20

The best thing I've bought is this navy broderie jacket from Whistles. It looks great with jeans at the weekend and I've worn it to work with a navy pencil skirt.

LaTrucha Sun 26-May-13 07:18:48

Sounds all good. I am spending madly! Thanks. ish. wink

Corygal Sat 25-May-13 22:44:08

Well, not only is it a scanty 23 quid but it's made of that nice soft modal, the blue is a superb flattering yet non-boring cobalt, and best of all it's not insanely long. The cowl neck isn't revealing and one can wear a bra.

LaTrucha Sat 25-May-13 22:35:34

I've been wondering about that maxi dress but have only seen it online. Tell me more!

oscarwilde Sat 25-May-13 22:26:32

Spanx :-(

Corygal Sat 25-May-13 22:14:52

Gap drapey maxi dress is a cracker

thanks! it actually feels worth the price in real life, thank god!

Yes = gorgeous bag.

suebfg Sat 25-May-13 21:46:45

I love the bag ToastedTeacakes

WipsGlitter Sat 25-May-13 21:42:58

A grey marl maxi skirt from Matalan. Planning on wearing it tomorrow. Also found my old knackered sandals (thought I'd thrown them out) got them repaired today for £7.50 - very happy as I couldn't find any I liked as much as them.

I haven't bought any 'pieces' but the things I am most happy with are -
Cos cigarette trousers
Cos mesh jumper
Cos gold cuff
Leather Converse

really great with jeans

This entire season I purchased 3 things which I am pretty happy with - not a lot, but they kinda blew my budget anyway.

These shoes:

This blouse:

Need a decent summer mac now but no luck. Will likely find it when winter sets in about mid way through Aug grin
