Blue isn’t a color I have worn in abundance, till now. I seem to be gravitating to all things navy. It feels a little more summery than black, and once again I am really enjoying using my navy Rocco. I went off it for a while, and even thought about selling it, but it makes me smile when I see it next to me in the car.

The skies here aren’t blue at all. In fact they are dark and threatening. We’ve had some fabulous storms here this week. I love stormy weather…as long as the power stays on!

My picks of the J.Crew sale!

Normally when I blog about J.Crew I feel a pang of guilt as it is rare that the UK and the rest of the world benefit from the sales and regular discount codes we get in the USA. Well today my guilt is alleviated by the fact that J.Crew have a sale on in the UK too with up to 50% off!

I would rarely dress myself head to toe in J.Crew but recently there are certain pieces I have become obsessed with. Their denim is fabulous – my favorite jeans are all J.Crew. Boyfriend, skinny (toothpick) and cropped are all in my closet and I love them all. In the sale you can nab some amazing denim – event the point sur pieces are on sale, and in the US there is an EXTRA 30% OFF EVERYTHING, including sale items, using code GOSHOPPING. Also there have been many extra styles added to the sale today.

My denim picks are:

POINT SUR EPIC SKINNY JEAN IN DORAN WASH – reduced from $288 to $99, now with an extra 40% off with GOSHOPPING

These dove grey jeans aren’t in the sale but I love them SO much I have ordered a second pair – they are currently 30% off with GOSHOPPING.

A classic that I have fallen in love with this season is the Regent blazer in linen. I just adore the popped collar and the silhouette of the jacket. It is really slimming. It does fit small and I wear a US 10 as the arms are pretty narrow.

Again the weathered coral pink isn’t in the sale but this is the first time I have seen it in stock online for some time – get 30% off with GOSHOPPING.

I just love these metallic foil bermuda shorts – the ivory bronze are now $29.99 and the gunmetal navy are $39.99 – get an extra 40% off with GOSHOPPING – too good to miss! They remind me of my gorgeous DvF silver shorts that I wore to death 2 years ago…must dig them out when I get home!

The mosaic pull on shorts that I wore on our first night out here in N. Cyprus are now reduced to $39.99 with an extra 40% off with GOSHOPPING. I adore these – super cute with an elasticated waist and a modest length.

The Fourth Doctor.

The thing about blogging is that when you have so many stylish friends in the blogging community, almost every day, in someone’s new post, I see an item that I want too!  The other week it was Avril at SchoolGateStyle.com.  I have rediscovered my passion for scarves since knowing Avril – and not only does she have a great selection but she wears them well.  My Nana taught me how to knit when I was little – I wouldn’t know where to start now – but I distinctly remember knitting a ‘Dr Who’ scarf – I was the Tom Baker generation and a big fan of the 4th Doctor…Anyway before I digress into complete geekdom the point is Avril was wearing this fabulous 8GBP scarf from Matalan here the other week.  A quick email to my Mum and Bob’s your Uncle – a week or 2 later I have one too!  Thanks Mum:)

The colors are perfect – this year’s burgundy with navy, blush, yellow and grey – and it is SO long!  I wore it the other day to the park with my AllSaints sweater, from a couple of years ago, layered over my Boden velvet henley in rose that I just love – it’s really soft and fits great.  The jeans are my Hudson Collin skinnies and the boots are the Frye Jenna studded.  The specs are my lovely Oliver People Wacks in matte blue havana.  A great outfit for a cold day – only problem was that as we stood cheering Poppy on, successfully riding her bike with no training wheels (UK – stabilisers), the sun was beating down and the temperatures rose to 70 degrees – no one else, oddly enough, was in their Dr Who scarf:)

Have been studying other ways to pose in front of the camera – as you can see my current favorite is ‘Looking at your feet’.

I’ve just released the turkey from an amazing smelling bag of brine and herbs.  It’ll be going in the oven in an hour or so and then I can open a bottle of bubbly:)  HAPPY THANKSGIVING Y’ALL!

A new look.

I hope you like the new look of the blog.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.  I changed the theme as I thought it made much more sense to have all the ‘follow’ widgets etc. in the sidebar rather than at the bottom of the page – far too much scrolling involved!  I hope it is still recognizable to all of you – the poppies are still present of course:)

My hair matches my clothes again today.  Unintentional – I just love red.  The jacket was a Zara sale bargain from the summer that I haven’t been able to wear till now as it is just so warm.  It has a lovely zebra print lining and it’s super comfy.  With all the red I went for solid black shoes – Sam Edelman Alvin pony hair loafers, jeans – Express stretch cropped jeggings, and t-shirt – another Express basic.  All topped off with a fab new Zara scarf dedicated to my love of all things camouflage again.  The color palette is a great twist as it includes red – I’m certainly not going to blend in the background anywhere today!
