Should have added that I am desperate for some nice new summer clothes but haven't a clue where to start

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

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.

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

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.

Sorry, Jigsaw, not Whistles

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.

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

I ordered it!

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

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

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.

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?

Allthingspretty Mon 27-May-13 15:21:45

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

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

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

CountBapula Mon 27-May-13 21:23:42

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

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