I thought I would share with you what I have recently purchased and what has caught my eye this week. I will also include some great affordable pieces and accessories that wont brake the bank. I recently placed an order through Mango and I was so excited to find a leather jacket that actually looks good on me, I have found it very difficult to find one that doesn’t make me look like I’m trying to be twenty. The Mango one is a lovely soft leather and isn’t cropped its a standard length so I didn’t feel to conscious about my middle. It has zip details on the sleeves and pockets and comes in at a reasonable price of £119.99 for real soft leather.
I will be wearing this all the time with jeans, classic white t-shirt and boots or trainers when it finally starts to warm up! I wore it with my embroidered Primark dress, tights and boots on my last blog post if you fancy a look. This is the link to the jacket http://shop.mango.com/GB/p0/woman/clothing/jackets/biker-jackets/leather-biker-jacket?id=83080046_70&n=1&s=destacados_she.leather_collection_she
My favourite buy has got to be this tropical print dress from http://shop.mango.com/GB/woman at only £15.99 its the perfect ‘throw on’ holiday dress for me, I always look for the easiest things to wear on holiday as you don’t want to spend to much time faffing around with skirts and tops or trousers etc. This dress you can actually step into and just pull up, stick some gold accessories on and you have a great little number. This dress also comes in different prints.
I also bought this gold belt, it is the one I have on with the dress above and it was only £3.99 from http://www2.hm.com/en_gb/index.html it also looks great with blue jeans as its a nice bright gold.
So I have a love/hate relationship with jeans as I find that I can try on 20 pairs and walk away with nothing, the style, fit and material are all important to me and it can take just one little thing to put me off (if my arse looks huge then that is usually the main factor) however I did find these little gems in http://www2.hm.com/en_gb/productpage.0468130004.html#Denim they are £24.99, they fit really well and give you a nice ‘bum’ shape if that makes sense, the waist is high, not too high and they aren’t too stretchy but enough to hug your figure. These are a good pair of jeans and a great price too. I will enjoy wearing these with a slouchy jumper and loafers.
Another summer dress that caught my eye was this Aztec print dress from http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/swimwear/white-aztec-print-bardot-neck-dress_516275219 this will look great with flat pom pom sandals and a straw bag for the beach and is only £14.99.
This quirky phone case is £5.99 from http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/view-all-accessories/phone-and-tablet-accessories/_/N-9xhZqtb I love phone cases and if I could change it every day to something different I would, its part of your accessories and outfit.
I really want to see this in the shop as I would like to feel the quality look at the print a bit closer but I do love it and I think it looks great with pale denim like in the photo, also it would look great with an LBD for a pop of colour. This is only £20 so not breaking the bank, I will definitely let you know what its like if I see it in store.

Last but not least these are on my list of things to try on, they are a pom pom espadrille from http://www.riverisland.com/women/shoes–boots/sandals/black-floral-pom-pom-espadrilles-698638 and are £38 these would look great on holiday with a little black dress and a bright coloured cross body for a night time outfit.
Wishing you a lovely evening
