It’s been a hectic week involving a fun night out with some moms from school – I love how diverse and fun our school is, we’re really lucky. Not quite sure how Friday has arrived so quickly this week.
I was up early this morning for carpooling duty so quite literally needed something to throw on. This Zara sweatshirt dress (old) was ideal, worn with my Golden Goose. I have a thing about cold shoulders in dresses and tops – I love them.
So regarding my wish list the other day – I may have slightly misled you. I actually ordered a couple of the Zara items – one because I’d seen it go in and out of stock so I was worried it may disappear if I delayed, and the other – well – just because I love it.
The first is the pink cardigan, ordered just because I wanted it, and I do love it. This is a medium so it is generous for Zara. I can’t wait to wear it with a simple white t-shirt, with boyfriend jeans or buttoned up with skinny jeans.
Next up is the knitted duffle. This keeps disappearing from stock so as soon as I saw the medium reappear I ordered it – justifying the early purchase by using the gift card that my father-in-law gave me for my birthday. He knows me so well. Thanks Mike – it’s a great birthday present – I love my knitted jacket:) Just be warned if you are buying for warmth this isn’t lined throughout. The sheepskin is just trim around the edges and in the hood – but perfectly snuggly for Atlanta fall weather.
Finally my ASOS dresses arrived. Now these are perfect and they were a great price – but the fabric of the black and grey is slightly different – I need to check the labels to see how composition differs. These are both a US 6 and the black is definitely shorter than the grey. I love the cut – great flirty t-shirt dresses, perfect with sneakers. They will be a staple to come through the mild Fall weather we have here. I think they’ll be great dressed up a bit with a scarf too, and the black could definitely be dressed up with heels and a great necklace for a night out. (Tip – always google for discount codes before buying on ASOS – there is normally one floating around!).
Have you checked anything off your ‘wish list’ yet?
Some fab new purchases Joanna, I especially love the Zara pink cardigan, simply stunning x
Oh but I love your pink one too – funny how 2 pink cardis can be so different – yours was a fabulous price as well! x
Err … yes. And I made my purchases from good old Marks & Sparks. I can hardly believe it myself but there was I browsing happily for one thing and coming out with something totally different. Always the way ….
And I’d feel a little diddled if the sheepskin didn’t go all around but then again I live over here and our autumns are a bit nippier than yours.
P.S. Bet the pink cardi fluffed all over your dress :o)
Yep – don’t wear it with a black tee:) What did you get from M&S then? Did you get your coat?
I love the asos dresses and have the black! I’ve been toying with ordering the grey too as they are such a wardrobe staple. Would be interested in how the fabric is different?! Love your blog and you look fab as always!
I checked and they both say 95% viscose and 5% elastane – but the black definitely has a ‘crepier’ feel to it – the grey is much softer fabric with less texture – does that make sense? Thanks for commenting:) Glad you like reading!! x
Makes complete sense! thanks x
I LOVE those dresses – wow they are gorgeous! I NEED your dress in the first photo – looks amazing with your trainers/sneakers too
So funny – it’s a cheapo Zara dress – but I just love the cold shoulders on it – my Husband loves it when I dress like this – he far prefers sneakers to heels!
That pink aweater may have to be mine! I’m glad it’s a little bigger, so maybe I can get away with a large. I’m so ready for fall. My golden sneakers and sweaters are begging to be worn.
It is gorgeous – it comes in navy too – I bet it will shed though so don’t wear with black:) x
I so wish we could get Golden Goose trainers (sneakers!) over here in the UK. Also loving the Asos dresses x
Can you not get them there? What about Yoox or Shopbop? Maybe a good thing – you’ll stay richer longer:)
I was just reding back a few posts and read about where there have been forums saying that you were self congratulatory. I dip in and out of your blog and rarely comment, but I just wanted to say that the comments are complete tosh. You come across as warm and open and ready to share your life, the good and the bad, with a smile on your face. Well done you, anyone who thinks otherwise just hasn’t spent enough time reading!
Lovely Alex – thank you so much for your fabulous comment – it means so much. I really don’t worry too much about forums otherwise I’d never blog!:) So very kind of you xx
You look gorgeous, as ever, and I particularly love the pink jumper. Pink is a big colour here for A/W and I am seriously lacking. This is perfect and I think you are right to edge it up a bit with boyfriends and a T. I still want your’ walk in wardrobe, in fact I am now threatening to divorce him if I don’t get one!!
Thanks for commenting – the pink is fabulous isn’t it? I’ve always loved pink particularly when paired with grey – I’ve been wearing it since the 80s:)
That should read Fashion40ish, I don’t know what happened there. xx
