The Summer sales are sadly drawing to a close, so this is your very last chance to nab yourself a bargain. As you all know I do LOVE a sale, so I thought I’d share a couple of my favourite recent purchases which quite honestly are must haves!
For those of you with eyes like a hawk, you might remember this sleeveless kimono-style coat appearing in my Summer sales wish list (catch it HERE if you missed it). If you live in the UK this is a wardrobe must have. We all know our British summer is less than glorious so this is perfect for those cooler summer evenings to throw over a dress or askirt and strappy top. The style is so elegant and works perfectly for evenings over a cocktail dress. Although it can also be dressed down with jeans and a tee.
Also, you’re really going to get your money’s worth with this one. I’m already dreaming about wearing it with some gorgeous knitwear. Thankfully the oversized style allows for plenty of warm and cozy layering, while the belt will cinch in your waist to stop you looking bulky. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a coat makes you look somewhat like the incredible Hulk!

It has been reduced from a whopping £125 to a very affordable £30. Plus the quality is really impressive. Topshop can be a bit hit and miss with their quality but this is up there as some of the best. It’s almost 50% wool and gorgeously soft to touch.
I got this is in a UK size 6 as it does come up on the larger size. Lastly, the fact it’s my favourite colour, lilac, is just the cherry on top!
Outfit details: Sleeveless kimono-style coat – Topshop (find HERE on sale) | Dress – Topshop (similar Here & here) | Shoes – ASOS (find HERE) | Bag – givenchy (similar HERE) | Headband – Her curious nature (similar here) | Bangles – j crew & Hermes (similar HERE & here)
These ASOS shoes were on my hit list for a while and I had to stalk the “New In” page for weeks. I know these won’t be to everyone’s taste as they’re pretty attention grabbing but I love them. They remind me of Miu Miu with a touch of Dolce and Gabbana thrown in but without the crazy price tag. They’re the perfect statement shoe and look much more expensive than they actually are.
I was on the hunt for a casual blue jacket I could wear with either jeans or dresses. When I saw this one from All Saints I immediately knew it was perfect. It just ticks all the boxes! Although it isn’t blue, the dusty charcoal shade is incredibly versatile and looks great with almost everything, especially distressed denim. Also, it’s light and easy to carry so it’s perfect for tying around your waist or throwing in your bag without it being any bother.
The other winning point is the cropped length and slim fit makes it super flattering. As it is a more fitted style I did go up a size as I wanted to make sure I could still wear jersey knits underneath when the cooler months creep in.

The suede is gorgeously tactile and I can’t stop stroking my arm when I’m wearing it! This is admittedly still on the pricey side (although to sweeten the deal All Saints is currently doing an extra 20% off all sale items) but I’m 100% certain this will be worn over and over again. I’ve already worn it almost every single day I’ve had it.
