What happened in TopShop today…

This morning I headed to the mall, feeling extremely virtuous as I was returning items to TopShop and Zara. Great, I thought, all those dollars that I didn’t need to spend back in my wallet for vacation! #epicfail

As I was walking out of TopShop these caught my eye.Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 9.46.55 PM Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 9.47.11 PM

They are ‘pleat trousers’ and I LOVE them. Really fluid, with an elastic waistband – these are a US 8/UK 12 in blush and grey. I can’t see the grey/silver online but I have just ordered them in red too and I am contemplating the gold. Perfect worn with a simple tee and sneakers or heels and a delicate cami.

In gold here

In blush – that I have tried and purchased above

In nude – though online they don’t look any different from the blush above…

In navy, which I just love with the loafers here

And khaki – these will be superb with a white tank and sneakers and a tan! Can I justify these too?

Next I saw this beautiful pleated jersey skirt. Now the fact it is jersey makes it incredibly comfortable and this also has an elastic waistband. I would say it is generous too – this is a UK 12 US 8. They must have just been put out as they were all creased so I have ordered online here.

It also comes in a beautiful blush and red. Perfect again with sneakers or slides and a t-shirt to dress it down a little. You don’t want to end up looking like my Latin teacher.

This is the pale blue I am trying on above.

The red is stunning – though I’d skip the Mickey Mouse sweatshirt…

So the moral of the story is, when returning items in store wear blinkers (blinders for the US!) else you’ll spend more than you returned 😉
