A few Winter Purchases
I have bought a few things this week and must tell you about them. One is this really light peach jumper from Mango. Pastels are a strong theme this winter apparently and in jumpers. Perhaps unusual but we are used to white or cream jumpers so why not baby pinks, peach, baby blue. One of my readers does non wintry jumpers so well, yes, I am looking at you Heather, with your superb collection.
Another trend this winter is bell sleeves. Not an item that will be an investment piece but at £12 I did buy a burgundy bell sleeved blouse from New Look, which I'm sorry was on the sale rail and not online so I can't link it for you. (sad face.) There is a rather lovely burgundy blouse in Monsoon with black lace trim here which could well be an investment piece. If you opted for the velvet black jeans from my earlier post then this would look gorgeous as a festive outfit over the holiday season. Not too dressy but dressy enough.
I also bought a coat from Seasalt. I needed a winter waterproof coat badly and decided that this would follow my 10 year rule and hopefully beyond. If you can't trust the Cornish for winter waterproofs who can you trust!

The coat is coming in the post. I hope it fits.
