All I need now is cooler weather!

I love winter weather – it’s in my genes. Unfortunately I am still waiting for it to arrive with gusto here – yesterday we were baking in 80 degree weather while trick or treating! Not to worry I am still preparing for a long winter with a couple of new purchases.

The Alexa collection for Marks & Spencer is now love and I couldn’t resist the Briggate trench. I think it will look super cool with skinnies and ankle boots with a graphic t-shirt. It’s now available here and I BET it sells out before the end of the week!

The Carine Roitfeld collection for Uniqlo is released in the UK on November 3rd at 10am. If you want anything I’d advise you to be quick with that too! Anything leopard print sold out here day 1 – including the bomber jacket and the above coat. I’ve stalked the coat here and it just came back in stock in a Small and Large – thank you!

I’m going to try and hold off now till the end of the year…ah hem…I know, I know…but we are off to Costa Rica for Christmas so not sure trenches and fur coats will be required then!

We had an amazing weekend celebrating Dave’s 50th – we had a lovely family dinner out on Saturday. It’s so nice now that the children are old enough to come with us. Poppy is just like me and loves getting dressed up for dinner out! I wore this fabulous dress that was 50% off in the & Other Stories sale – it’s one of those every occasion dresses that will be perfect for beach vacations too.

Yesterday was a rather tumultuous day. After campaigning for Hillary on Friday and receiving my yard sign I was very proud to display it. Someone stole it on Sunday – not only is it illegal but I felt violated that my property had been taken and that somebody had actually been to the trouble to walk into my yard and take it. After venting my frustration on our neighborhood website, in what I considered and non-partisan manner, I was then mocked, attacked and abused by online comments all day. I love democracy and would never attack another for their opposing views – this election is making me VERY sad though and the hate that it is proliferating is nothing but terrifying. Onwards and upwards. Wearing new boots helped.

  1. The Uniqlo leopard print coat is fantastic. I love the collar – like a dressing gown but in a good way of course. Great dress from &Other Stories. I haven’t seen that in the UK and I normally all over the sales in there. Sad to hear about your sign theft and the subsequent abuse you got – people are so very strange.

I love hearing your thoughts and I will reply as soon as I can if you have a specific question! If you prefer email you can contact me at Joanna@Poppys-Style.com. Thanks for taking the time to comment xx
