I will be traveling for the next few days – wending my way from Bury to Kyrenia – so there’ll be no blog post for a few days. To make up for it I’ve done two today. I couldn’t wait to tell you about my exciting morning;)
Mum and Dad took the children out for the day so I got to have some ‘me’ time in Bury with the shops that I miss. M&S, River Island, Primark and Matalan were all on my hit list. However, I was completely side tracked by Next. What a revelation!
Well in all honesty I had seen some of my blogging friends wearing some great items from Next recently, so I knew I had to take a look while I was here. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery no? We are all inspired by what we see in other blogs – and I’ve already bought Avril’s shoes, now I have Hollie and Eve’s jacket, and I think Kat’s jacket too?
For the trip I decided to give two fingers to the weather and wore all white, with my Boden leather jacket.
T-shirt – Zara TRF linen t-shirt with pink flower (old – can’t see it online in the sale but it may appear again) // Jeans – H&M (old) // Scarf – Boden chincilla pinspot lightweight scarf (I love this and want the acid lime one too)
Here’s the gorgeous Next jersey biker jacket in grey. I tried a 12 to start with and it was huge so ended up with a 10. Both Hollie and Eve All Worn Out have this. It is the softest, snuggliest jacket ever – perfect for Bury – maybe not so much for Atlanta and Cyprus.
I then spotted these great harem trousers in white. Some of you may like these – they are not low slung at the crotch – but have quite a tapered leg, others of you may not – as, with most white jersey, you can see the pockets.
I’m not normally a blouse person at all. But I was immediately drawn to this. The leopard print obviously caught my eye, but the colors are also lovely – greys, white and blush tones. The shape is great too and very forgiving for the muffin top.
With the jacket it creates a good day to evening outfit.
The top with skinnies.
Next up I saw this blue jacket. I loved it immediately. It’s a really flattering cut, lightweight and washable too. I also love the neckline. Oh and I totally love the fact it was only 28 GBP! I think Kat has this. It didn’t photo well at all – I think Next in Bury has the darkest changing rooms ever.
Finally the shoes. I didn’t get them – I wanted to – but the toe problem reared it’s ugly head again. I loved these and realized that I don’t have any navy heels at all so I could completely have justified them – but the little toe just wouldn’t behave. They came in grey too. I’m afraid I can’t see them online but I think they were about 28 GBP.
So all in all a fun trip to Bury – I even managed to grab coffee with my sister. I didn’t make it to anywhere else but Next I’m afraid. A good job I think really:)
