The sun is out and I have a spring in my step. For the SECOND time this week. If that doesn’t make you want to break out and buy some new clothes, I don’t know what will! Luckily, my fave boutique Woodie & Morris cunningly put together a ‘sunshine’ parcel for me which arrived today full of jeans and tops. These are the ones that I will be adding to my wardrobe!
Jeans. I can never have enough. They are my staple – and I hate buying them because I’m curvy and a lot of jeans look completely ‘MEH’ on my shape…take a look at my previous blog on jeans. These however, I am really chuffed with. They have good stretch and what I mean by good stretch is that they keep their shape meaning you won’t be walking round with a baggy bum or baggy knees after wearing them for a day.
Normally I would point you to their lovely website, but these clothes are flying out the shop so quick that if you like what you see, why don’t you call them on 01428 641 771 and you’ll get some great customer service. If you fancy liking them on Facebook, you can!
I haven’t got any ripped up jeans so I was so chuffed that these fit me and they were really flattering on my bum. They are mid rise – so high enough to catch most of any muffin action but not too high. I’m wearing a size 28.
The t-shirt, I wouldn’t have picked out at all if I had been in the shop – never in a month of Sundays, but with a bit of colour (or a spray tan), I think this will be really useful. A ‘smart’ tshirt you can wear day or night. Maison Scotch – £47.50 Apologies for the dreadful picture with all the gubbins behind….we are about to move house AGAIN so this blog had to be done in a bit of a rush!
I can’t tell you how super chuffed with this shirt I am. Its going to be worn a lot. I will go from Cotswolds to Ibiza and back. I love the detailing on it. (also available in powder blue) and it looks fresh and you definitely won’t see loads of people wearing the same. Saint Tropez – £34.99
This next blue top is really hard to photograph. Looks like quite a dull blue top hey? But is NOT! The detailing is fab – a kind of twist, faux cross over type shape. It looks great on. Colour is closer to the top picture (i.e. dark) – I had to play with the light to get the detail to show. Its by St Tropez and retails at £44.99
Last – but NEVER least. A stripe. This one is a stripe with more than just a stripe because you get a vest top (shown) and a lovely gold necklace as well. 3 for 1 that’s my top half sorted! This is Maison Scotch – £69.95
