So after months of not buying and maternity leave, I hit town today to get my return to work wardrobe sorted !

I got a gorgeous all saints coat (reduced in sale)
New trainers for gym
A zadig Voltaire top I admired last year in TK max!

I needed some trousers and tops but couldn't find anything flattering/ I liked.

Spotted a pair of ankle boots in stone colour in office I ll probably order too as need a pair and will get lots of wear from.

I know it s a bit early for Autumn and stuff only coming in, but anyone else spotted anything nice about ?

A joules quilted jacket
Navy cord skirt and a pale pink jumper both from tesco.
A burnt orange cardigan from superdry.
I've got my eyes on a blue cord blazer in boden, a pair of velvet boots and a bobble hat grin

I haven't bought anything this weekend - mainly because payday isn't til Wednesday for me!!
I've been browsing online though.
I have my eye on some black patent loafers from Next, black heeled ankle boots from Clark's and a grey coat in Topshop.
This is my favourite time of year for new clothes.

I've taken delivery of a Topshop coat, and a ruched skirt from Hush - so pleased with the skirt I've ordered it in the other colour. I got some black suede Chelsea boots in Office a few weeks ago too. On my list is a black crew-neck jumper and a big parka.

Christmas outfits.

I agree blue I love this time of year, for shopping and in general! I still have a good bit of baby weight that just won't budge so I dot. Want to buy too much, but as the only things I ve really bought in the last year have been bare basics to get me through I feel like I need a little bit of fashion to keep me going.

I love th sounds of the super dry cardi, and the hush skirt

I treated myself to a new bottle of perfume (Lacoste Pour Elle - Sparkling) and a body wash from Superdrug and got 20% off with their loyalty card!

Boden sale stuff- I'll let you know how it goes when it arrives.

Yesterday I was ogling some cable knit jumpers in H&M but the choice was navy, grey or pink and I don't really need anything more navy or grey.

And after buying Tea Tree facegel and cleanser for DS, school shoes for DD and a vest top for DD , I was ready to run.

I'm taking DD to London , I'll have a nose about then.

We have a New Life store in our town. Today I got:
A white ruched sleeve blazer (River Island)
A linen mix skirt (Whistles)
A white stuff boat neck top
A lightweight blue blazer thing ( not sure on make but fairly cheap I think)
The whole lot was £22.50. I love New Life!

Delighted with items I bought in my local charity shops.
Hobbs 3/4 sleeve black dress £12

Lands end green blazer with navy trim £6.

I have also ordered the Hush ruched skirt in burgundy. There is a £10 voucher to use with Hush if you follow this link

And you can use it with the code Wearhush for an extra 10% off and free delivery.

I also bought this black jumper from New Look (somewhere I don't often shop) and it's lovely. A nice alternative to a black polo neck. It's a lovely soft knit.

Olecranon Sun 28-Aug-16 08:57:52

I was shopping with no children for the first time in many months.
I got a black polo neck from Zara £19.99
White shirt and grey tartan shirt from primark £7 each
Grey cardigan with black stars £6 primark
Looked everywhere for a grey leather jacket and gave up.Popped
Into sainsburys for food and saw a lovely fake leather jacket in grey for £35. Bargain. I am tempted by the hush skirt in burgundy.

VanillaSugar Sun 28-Aug-16 10:06:04

I've just bought new car tax for 12 months. Exciting.

Glamorousglitter Sun 28-Aug-16 22:57:29

Oh some lovely finds smile I think j
I spotted s handbag I d like too but that might have to wait a little while yet.

Ole love the idea of a grey leather jacket.

Yes hush skirt looks fab but I m not buying until I be lost a stone !

A pair of gorgeous sapphire earrings from the QVC outlet store. It's not often I treat myself but they were an absolute bargain. Certainly wouldn't have been able to afford them at full price.

BearFoxBear Sun 28-Aug-16 23:22:24

Thanks for the Hush code fozzy, I finally bought the ruched skirt, let's see how it looks on smile

I've gone eBay crazy, parcels keep arriving that I've forgotten about blush

I've also bought a lovely boden tankini, and a couple of pairs of Next tapered trousers which have to be the most comfortable and flattering trousers of all time!

fozzy26 Sun 28-Aug-16 23:54:09

Your welcome BearFoxBear. I would like some tapered trousers for work, which ones did you go for and what size are you?

jelly10 Mon 29-Aug-16 08:19:30

A fab white stuff bag - it's got a shoulder strap as well as cross body, nice and big for all my junk essentials, I love it smile. Exactly what I'd been looking for (and much cheaper than the Joules one I had my eye on! halo)

jelly10 Mon 29-Aug-16 08:23:01

Oh and I am also tempted by the hush burgundy skirt, I bought it in black and green over the summer and have worn them loads. Also like the look of the Tara dress. Thank you for all the discount codes, may go and have a little look now...
Blueyed I also have my eye on some clarks boot - I think there's a 20% discount code around at the moment if you google it.
Love autumn!!

BearFoxBear Mon 29-Aug-16 08:53:52

fozzy I got the Next Black Workwear Tapered Trousers (£22) and a printed pair for going on holiday. So comfortable!

I'm a 16 (but slowly shrinking) with a post c-section belly, so I hope that the Hush skirt is forgiving!

I forgot that I also got a brilliant tan cross body Radley bag from eBay for £20 smile

Maybe I should stop spending!!

Just ordered some skinny jeans from Boden in clearance - very pleased as I really like their jeans. Also bought a coatigan from Sainsbury's which is lovely. Am on the look out for that perfect pair of Autumn boots now, I start looking every August- September and still haven't found the absolute perfection that I'm looking for. I have a picture in my mind of them but nothing ever quite fits the bill.

fozzy26 Mon 29-Aug-16 09:27:53

Thanks BearFoxBear. I'm a 14 but I've only seen the trousers worn on very thin models. Good to know they are flattering on more curvy figures. Will order them and try.

herecomesthsun Mon 29-Aug-16 10:04:27

I have bought (in pounds)
- a navy stretch velvet skirt - 15 - from our local hospice shop
- a Jaeger dress - about 60
- a Jaeger jacket - about 30 (may have an interview coming up)
- a Jaeger necklace - about 30

various bits from the Boden clearance, many of which are likely to go back.

ThreeFrazzledFandangos Mon 29-Aug-16 10:15:53

I've bought:

£167 worth of work tops from Oasis blush

These loose knit trousers from Gap. Not arrived yet but they look like the type I've been looking for since my trusty top ship pair gave up the ghost 2 years ago.
