Get an extra 20% off sale prices!

It’s that time of year where I resist, resist, resist….ah shucks big fat fail. Those sales emails sure know their clickbait…

One of my favorite online stores is now reducing sale items by a further 20% on check out – so here are my favorite items…

First what I failed with – and I’m sorry there are very few sizes left! The Rick Owens peep toe boot – already reduced by 60% then with an extra 20% too good to refuse, especially in this fabulous grey goat leather – very urban and distinctive compared to the usual black leather.

I am still a HUGE fan of Isabel Marant’s Bobby sneaker. I already have 2 pairs – cream and burgundy both bought reduced off TheOutnet.com. There is something about the cut around the ankle that is so elegant – it sits beneath the ankle bone so it they are really flattering and feminine. These in red are stunning – imagine this color with tanned legs and denim shorts – lush!

Her Leo ballet flat is a classic and again already reduced with an extra 20% at check out – various sizes left.

In caramel

khaki –

and black

Then there are her boots – I totally love these as they are so reminiscent of the 80s pixie boot – perfect with slouchy boyfriend jeans or skinnies.

The Etoile Ralf in taupe

in brown:

In black it appears to be called the Raelyn

I’ve ordered them in this camel as I love the color of my Dickers.

Covering all bases they are also available in khaki

If you crave a little embellishment and eccentricity in your footwear i.e. the antithesis of Isabel Marant its worth checking out the Miu Miu sale collection, though sizes are sparse…

Finally I always lust after Stella McCartney shoes – I just nabbed a pair of Elyse platforms in the Neiman Marcus sale but there are lots of sizes left here too. You’ve seen me in these before.

So some footwear heaven for you! I’ll be mostly in flip flops for the next month as we leave for Turkey next week – packing is not going well…I’m crap at creating a capsule wardrobe! This week has been spent walking and lunching with my son – he’s pretty good company!

Old friends, a birthday, a Eurovision song contest and wedding talk!

It’s been one of those amazing weekends.  I still feel on a high, though slightly weary after a weekend of excesses.  Karin and Simon left this morning to head back to Stockholm but it was a memorable weekend.

Yes I did help choose the rings:)  I think Karin found my advice invaluable…BUT I have promised not to share photos of it before the wedding in August.  Needless to say it is a classic and stunning.   The boys and girls then parted ways, as the ladies took on some hardcore shopping.  Two pairs of Jimmy Choos, a Jimmy Choo clutch, a Coach handbag and a pair of ballet flats later Karin was all shopped out.  And you’ll never guess what – I didn’t buy a thing!! I was having so much fun offering advice that I got my shopping endorphins vicariously through Karin.

I did however do some ‘browsing’ and I fell seriously head over heels (pun intended) for these Miu Miu jazz shoes!

Had I had 2 glasses of wine at lunch instead of one I’m quite sure this McQueen clutch would have come home with me.

Then I took some photos of a potential birthday present – I like to help my Husband out with a couple of pointers:)

As for Karin’s haul here’s one pair of the gorgeous wedding shoes – these are for the ceremony.

Naturally we had to get a pair for dancing in too:)

This is the bag that Karin walked away with from Coach.  I adore the style – so slouchy and the interior design is perfect.  I am lusting after it in yellow.  Coach seem to have really upped their game recently and are moving away from the heavily branded C logo bags – thank goodness.

On Friday night after a tiring day of shopping we all headed out to our favorite restaurant where Simon proposed to Karin last year.  MUCH fun was had.  I was thrilled to wear my Ted Baker dress for the first time!

On Saturday it was Poppy’s birthday so after presents we went to her favorite BBQ joint for lunch.  Later that afternoon she had the time of her life dancing to the Eurovision Song contest!  We were SO excited that we managed to stream it live – quite giddy with excitement actually!

Yesterday we headed out for a little more shopping.  You’ll be relieved to know this time I did actually leave the Mall with something.  Two things in fact.  I am enamored with Gap at the moment and I left with 2 pairs of jeans.  The neon were in the sale in store but don’t appear to be online.

I LOVE these paint splattered skimmers.  Both pairs are very stretchy and I managed to get into a 27″ in both so definitely size down.

On Sunday night we headed out for steak and fabulous red wine.  Yummy – those 27″ might not fit today.

Today it is a day for comfort and drinking lots of water.  The sun is shining here again after a weekend of rain – not that we noticed it – we were having so much fun.  Till next time our special friends.
