Bag ‘n’ Shoes: grey tote and French Sole pink woven Henriettas

I recently purchased a pretty new pair of French Sole shoes in their secret sale, and I love them! (And, pst – they have another, bigger sale on RIGHT NOW!)

French Sole Henriettas

They’re actually pinker than I thought they’d be, and to my surprise, I’ve found that even so, they’re more versatile than I thought! They go with the grey trousers I’ve been living in over summer (from Next) and blue jeans, which is perfect for me.

Bags are also easy to match with pink – my favourite, nameless, grey foldover tote from eBay goes perfectly – which is handy, because I’ve been using it a lot lately thanks to its voluminous nature. In fact, it came to the cinema with me last night and carried my slippers (yeah, I’m not in my 20s anymore…)

On Monday last week my husband’s lovely co-workers organised a surprise trip for him to go to a local ice-cream parlour. I, of course, was a major co-conspirator, so I had to pop along as well! Here’s my outfit!

If I’ve only learnt one thing recently fashion-wise, it’s the importance of a range of cute blazers when it comes to pepping up an outfit. I love the colours in this, and multi-coloured items make it so easy to match accessories, etc. I got this in the sale at Next, after having stalked it at full price for some time – and it was the last one left at half price. Bargain!

They also match these orange-red cat flats I bought from eBay, which are sadly starting to show their wear, but I still love them. When I bought them, I had no idea they were copies of the Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats, but in all honesty I prefer the heel height on mine – which is to say, completely flat. Of course, if I win the lottery I will purchase the originals immediately! Also, please excuse the scratches on my foot – I was attacked by a bush on my parents’ driveway recently! At least it’s not as noticeable as what’s happened to my hand…

Nope, no idea why I have cuts all over it, other than I was doing *a lot* of party prep and being incredibly careless. Good job I’m not a hand model! But ignore the cuts, check out the cute Dog Zodiac bracelet my husband bought me from Mulberry in the sale!

Dogs are my favourite animal, and I was born in the year of the dog, so of course, I had to have this… It was fate! And, it came in its own dustbag, gift box and lovely Mulberry bag, too – all for the bargain price of £20!

I’ve been wearing it every day since – I usually hate bracelets and watches because of the constant feeling of something being on my wrist, or slipping around, but this is so delicate you hardly know it’s there.
