Well sometimes it just happens when you least expect it; there you are browsing online, no makeup, no bra, a hoody and joggers, and then it happens; you stumble across THE pair of Adidas Gazelle Trainers that are love at first sight, and oh wait it gets better; they are on SALE too!!! Hello Fate.
I have had my eye on some new trainers for a while and couldn’t believe it when I stumbled across these beauts (can you sense the excitement!!) online at Office AND on sale. I’ve said before how much that I love the whole sports trend coming back; stylish, on trend, yet blooming comfortable too.
I love trainers and over the last couple of months my collection has grown but I knew I wanted either a pair of Gazelle or Stan Smiths to add to my collection – note the Stan Smiths were also on sale so I had to use the ultimate will power and only buy one…. L (Although check back after next payday and I am pretty sure that willpower will have completely dissolved and a pair of Stan Smiths will be sitting nicely in my wardrobe….)
I didn’t, in any way, think I would opt for a patterned pair; I also go for the plainer, classic styles; but when I saw these I absolutely loved the pattern. It’s fresh but without being garish or impossible to style.
Ok now I’ve had my love fest with my new trainers, let me move on to my love fest with my new jacket….
I have been hunting for a faux leather jacket for a while; I am pretty particular; I don’t want it too cropped, no collar, and I don’t like it when there is too much going on with it; simple and chic is best in my eyes.
After a lot of deliberation (honestly hours…) I finally took the plunge with this gorgeous jacket from Mango.
It was exactly what I was looking for in terms of style and price. It fits really well and I don’t think you can go wrong with a jacket like this; a classic wardrobe staple that I know I will get my money’s worth within a couple of months.
The silver hardware is right up my street, the collar is a good size and it fits great, ending just above my hips. I love styling these jackets up as it is just so easy; casual as I have done here, but you also can’t beat styling up with a dress and killer heels, or a sleek and sexy jumpsuit. Anything that is comfortable, provides warmth and can be worn with about 80% of my wardrobe is a winner for me!
