I spoke too soon.

Sorry to all of you in the UK and elsewhere – but I am sharing a J.Crew code that is only valid in the US – complain to them not me:)  Using HEYSPRING you can get 25% off online and in store.  They don’t often have such great discounts at J.Crew so I have taken advantage of it ready for our trip to the beach for Spring Break.

This camouflage sweatshirt is similar to the one Marlene wore here – but I think I have ordered the lighter, grayer, colorway.

J.Crew’s denim shorts are the best I have come across – super soft and stretchy – in fact I often size down as they give during wear.

This denim jacket is a great dark vintage wash and it is already on sale.  I love it – I just need to try it on in store so I know my size.  J.Crew love their vanity sizing and often it is worth again sizing down.

Finally I have ummed and aahed about rash guards for the past couple of summers.  Going to the beach in April means it can still be pretty breezy, making that risk of sun burn even greater, so I have taken the plunge and ordered this one.  I prefer the solid color to a stripe.

If that is too much coverage for you I really like this sleeveless version – and it is a great price, currently reduced to $49.50.

 All this talk of beach attire and Spring Break feels a little premature today as the temperatures drop again.  So yes I did speak too soon at the weekend and the boots are back on today – but just £27.20 boots from the M&S sale – RESULT!

Finally I look a bit crazed here – but this is me on a usual Sunday – no makeup and my hair is still wet after the gym…

      They are super flattering on – they really make my fat feet look lovely and slender. Dying of a cold right now so I am struggling to feel good in anything:( xx

    Oh – hope you get better soon – funnily enough, when I feel dire, I slap a bit of makeup on and it really does improve the situation.

    And you got the ankle strap Avarcas – lucky you! They look gorgeous. I may be a little well jell :o)

      I can’t decide if it’s allergies or not – it’s that time of year here and the kids are suffering too…I’ve got my lippy on today so feeling perkier:) x

      I just had my fringe trimmed – so you can see my eyes again:) Trying to leave the back to let it grow as long as possible over the summer – then no doubt I’ll have it all chopped off again! xxx

      I always buy different shorts and then end up living in my JCrew denim shorts so trying to learn my lesson this year:)

    Noooooooooooo!!! 25% discount?! That’s just not fair. I’ve been wearing my camo sweatshirt a lot since I got it.
