Following on from my previous post, and just to prove that procrastinating can sometimes pay off – I present to you my sequin skirt that is now on its way to me! Not grey or blush – but a perfectly beautiful shade of indigo. I hope it is as gorgeous in the flesh – especially as it was already in the sale and is currently an extra 50% off with code EXTRA50.
Unlike a lot of people I know I have very little blue/navy in my closet but I have definitely noticed myself being more and more attracted to navy items. It’s such a classy color and many clothes look far more expensive, or even better quality, in navy than they do in black. Not to mention that it is now no longer a fashion faux pas to mix navy and black. Hence while browsing on Net-a-porter.com this morning I found myself uncontrollably besotted with these beauties. My Newbury boot fetish continues.
It’s been an odd week to say the least. An entire week off unexpectedly can certainly mess with your head – I feel slightly jet lagged and totally discombobulated! We’re off tomorrow too for President’s Day, then I have 3 days at work before I’m off to the UK wooo-hooo! Having the week off has been lovely as it has meant lots of time with the kids before I go and leave them. Hugh even fell asleep on me yesterday – it was lovely – I hope he still wants to snuggle like that when he is 18;)
Poppy and I braved the snow the other day – I needed to return some stuff to Zara.
Me – Sneakers – Golden Goose (similar here) // Jeans – Zara coated blue jeans // Coat – Zara // Bag – Alexander Wang Rocco navy nubuck (TheOutnet.com – now sold out, but similar here) // Poppy – Boots – Sam Edelman Louie // Pants – H&M harems // Coat – H&M // Hair band – Crewcuts
Friday I enjoyed a day of pampering, though to be honest 2 hours in the salon followed by a 2 hour facial was probably a little too much in one day!
Sneakers – Golden Goose // Jeans – H&M grey boyfriend jeans // T-shirt – ASOS forever t-shirt // Jacket – Zara (old) // Scarf – Zara (old)
And here is the finished result – much lighter hair – still not convinced – but a nice change regardless.
Boots – Rag and Bone Newbury boots petrol (old) // Jeans – Boyfriend jeans Zara // Sweater – AllSaints Portland Jumper (old)
And finally a new ASOS dress to share with you. It was in the sale and I’d been umming and ahhing about it all over the Christmas period. I love the lace sleeves – just enough for me – and it reminds me of the lace sleeves on my wedding dress.
Off to clean my mirror…! 🙂
I am so into Navy too, must be in the air!! I love your new lighter hair perfect for the Spring and 4 hours of pampering sounds divine! Asos dress is cool, love the lace detail and I have just read there was lots of black lace on the aw14 catwalks so you are way ahead! Xx
Love the J Crew skirt…colour is divine!! Your hair looks amazing……I would love a few solitary hours in a salon being spoilt….especially if the end result looked so good!! xx
Joanna your hair looks gorgeous. Love the colour and cut. Think I’m being swayed by sparkly skirts. Would be so useful for the hols too x
Love your hair, it really suits you! You look great in all outfits – but I especially love the pic no 2- think the colours would look fab with new lighter hair too 🙂 xx
Oooh, Joanna, can’t wait to see the sequinned skirt. I agree about navy vs black. Poppy is gorgeous. Really love the black Asos dress.. The lace sleeves make it look very pretty xxx
Hair looks amazing!!!
I need navy boots but I think your budget and mine are very different!!!
See you soon!
Hi Joanna, I have that ASOS dress and I think it’s great. I’ve had lots of compliments on it. Keep it!
Love your new skirt Joanna, it’s going to look stunning on you. Great minds with the scarf this week!
Love the asos dress really suits you. Lovely to see your daughter following in your fashionista footsteps.

Hi! I just discovered your blog and am really enamoured! Quick question about the navy Rocco- is it a really high maintenance bag, given that it’s nubuck? Have you noticed any color transfer or staining or anything like that? I am hoping to buy either this one or a black leather one but the leather one seems so much more durable. I’d love to hear your experience with it. Thanks!
