Tick

Some rare time off allowed me the opportunity to do a bit of shopping, something I haven't done properly in quite a while. I anticipated yet another unsuccessful outing, but I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up this beautiful angora (blend?) jumper. It is the most perfect jumper ever. The neckline is beautiful, but what I like most is that it doesn't have that thick band around the bottom that most jumpers do. I find this really unflattering. I also bought APC loafers but I have decided to exchange them for some blue suede Repettos.

Terrible picture I know, but a full shot does it no justice!

Buying another class items makes me realize I am finally making progress on that elusive search for the perfect wardrobe. I also have come to the conclusion that I am nearly done when it comes to shoes. Just some nice sandals and winter boots and I am finished...in theory anyway.

Somewhat luckily given I've just bought a jumper, the weather isn't great and a lightweight coat/jacket is still needed. I've seen this one (Maje) that I like. They did an amazing wool coat in a similar style last winter that I loved, so I am tempted by this one. It also comes in navy. Thoughts?

  1. The Chanel and Ferragamo flats are really lovely. You should post a photo of the blue suede Repettos too! The coat is nice, though I personally don't like coats with hoods since they are uncomfortable when I sit against something (like a bus seat, for example). Also wondering how tough it would be to do up the buckles if you wanted to button up your jacket in a hurry? I do like the cut and the deep pockets though, and the color is great for spring!

  2. Your shoe collection is perfection.
    I have been very tempted by the Liberty collection for Nike - torn between the pair you have and the floral pair. I have a feeling the ones you have would fit in with my wardrobe much better than the floral ones, which would be beautiful to look at on my shoe rack... which isn't a good enough reason to buy them!

  3. your shoes are all so perfect! I really like the coat, where is it from? a hood may come in handy from random showers, but I like the look of hoods anyway. Those Repetto's sound so nice as well!

  5. I adore Maje, it's sad that I have no access to it. That coat is gorgeous, I'm not sure there is anything I would change about it- they use great fabrics too, don't they?

  6. That coat is perfect! I really love this mini version of a duffle coat. I'd go for the camel version as I'm not sure about the contrasting buckles of the navy coat.

  8. I love your shoe collection! The Repetto's sound pretty great as well. I really want to get a black pair this summer, but I'm still a bit in doubt. I'm not sure if I can justify the price, since my flats usually last only one(maybe two) seasons.
    I like the coat, but I'm not sure how I feel about the buckles...

  10. Absolutely love the look of that jumper (it looks so beautifully snuggly and soft) and that Maje coat - I'm thinking of getting one almost exactly the same by Mulberry this season in black or grey.

    And your shoe collection is just lovely - oh how I wish I'd bought those Marant boots!

    Hope all is well lovely
