SPRING PRINTS + SHOES

this time last week i spent a truly lovely day out shopping with my mum

it has been a very long time since i spent money on clothes
+ i have to admit i went a little bit crazy!
(it's like print heaven in the shops right now)

so this is a kind of confessional/show + tell post

starting with a cropped monsoon jacket
(spotted by my mum....thanks mum)

green....my favourite favourite colour

+ how could i not buy something from primark? a £15 cotton coat

loving the 3/4 sleeves + big big collar

+ now for the shoe section....a clarks special

(then) i didn't want to get my school shoes there!...
....+ (now) what's not to love?

especially when you're tall + like comfort

these flats are going to be my best friends
(as soon as it gets a teensy bit warmer!)

+ whilst i waffle about fashion here a few things out there that i heart

the new laura ashley archive collection
(prints + colours = truly gorgeous)

this this + (if i had a little girl) this from saltwater

+ on the subject of fabric prints + saltwater
....i must share a £20 ebay bargain coat + a matching tunic dress
(linen + print + colour combination = gotta have it!)

i'm planning to make a cotton turquoise
(or satsuma?) skirt to match for the summer

wishing one + all a great weekend whatever you're up to!

I have often seen Saltwater on eBay going so cheaply, so I'm glad you've got your hands on some.
There's nothing like a bit of retail therapy to lift the spirits:)

Oh, you have great taste, I love all your choices and loving prints right now, it's everywhere! Your jackets are amazing especially the Saltwater jacket (I wonder if that one from Primark is still available?), time to shop!

Hi, i bought my daughter the 50's style 3/4 length sleeve coat from primark, it is a black and tan leopard print it was reduced to £8, she struts up and down bethnal high st, wearing it with the biggest black "ant eye" shades, she wears the collar up and it looks great, she said she has seen two others out there and she has to stop her self from strutting up to them and suggesting they too try the collar up, she looks like a cross between Audrey Hepburn and bet Lynch now there's an image!.....

Wow I am so jealous I don't live in your home town right now. I happened upon your blog today, and saw your post. I LOVE all your new clothes. I am going to have to try Ebay so I can get a few of those items.
