The only problem with being confined to the house due to feeling so unwell has been that I 'need' to use the time to browse online and with all the retailers bringing out new spring lines it is very very tempting!
So what has caught my eye!?
Hush new season .... this colour block jumper and this navy silk blouse. Both ideal for transitional dressing as spring approaches.
But also still a few good pieces in the Hush sale - how about this dress that I wouldn't be able to wear when it is really cold but it could work as the weather gets milder? Reduced to £40 and this soft white shirt - now I love the layered look but very rarely get it right or feel comfortable but this one might just work for me under a cashmere knit?
I'd been wondering about this very bright green cashmere jumper from Marks & Spencer then I saw another blogger wearing it (layered with a white shirt, see above)! and it did look very stylish so I might have to give it a go. I can't seem to use the photos online today so here are some snaps of my screen! Then this navy stripe cashmere jumper caught my eye as it is navy and not black which will work well for spring.
Now as you know I treated myself recently to an amazing Louis Vuitton handbag but there are times when a cross body bag is necessary - I have a few but I fancied a statement bag and one that was large enough to be useful but not too large (yeah I know I am a bit fussy) anyway Aurora London came to my attention via Instagram and their Gigi bag could just fit the bill for me and at £95 it won't break the bank (10% introductory discount if you sign up for newsletters too) so I have ordered it in red - there are lots of amazing colours and you can have it personalised with your initials monogrammed onto it - I chose not to as I often sell my bags on.
Now I think my husband will be glad that I am recovering as the credit card has taken a bit of a bashing this last week!
Some of my haul has arrived so look out for Instagram photos and a blog update on what I liked and what went back!
