Links pretty please!

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

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:$ja=tsid:32977|cc:|prd:24388979|cat:Womenswear+%3E+Categories+%3E+Shop+Accessories+%3E+Shoes+%3E+Heels+%3E+Mid+heels

This blouse:

And this bag:

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

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 love the bag ToastedTeacakes

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 25-May-13 21:47:51

Yes = gorgeous bag.

ToastedTeacakes Sat 25-May-13 21:52:30

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

Gap drapey maxi dress is a cracker

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

Spanx :-(

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!

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 Sun 26-May-13 07:18:48

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.

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

Sorry, Jigsaw, not Whistles

novelsituation Sun 26-May-13 07:24:25

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!

Gillybobs Sun 26-May-13 23:24:03

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 Mon 27-May-13 08:01:30

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

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.

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?

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

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.
