I'll be going to Zara and Topshop, I already have a really good basic wardrobe (not bragging but I'm a keen shopper!)

What 3 things should I add for spring/summer?

I like denim minis, so there. Gah to you! smile No more boring than jersey minis, which I also like.

I'm back, ridiculously busy, so I swerved actual purchases and did an Internet order!

Soft checked shirt (in red/blue/white check)
Silky, black bomber
Blue, tassel loafers
Black, plain D'orsay flats

I fancy a soft pink bomber but am wondering if 1, I'm too old (40's) and 2, what colour/style footwear would you team it with???

Thanks for all the suggestions, I may have to add some of those to the bucket list.

That's just Spring stuff, not summer. Ps, all this has been compiled over a few years and I only ever really buy classics, am an avid bargain hunter and very rarely pay full price for anything (except in Zara for trend pieces and Topshop for skinnies (Leighs).
