returning the cocoon wrap from this last post (which has been reduced again to £19!) and I picked up a few wee things..just can’t resist those further reductions.
First up, a couple of scarves. The ‘Lightweight Botanical Floral’ Scarf - I didn’t name it, M&S did, clearly expecting that catchy name would sell them faster! Well, despite the name and the dodgy online photo it’s sold out online but there were a few left in Sprucefield this morning for just £10.
Next up, another scarf I had tried on in recent weeks and dithered over. At £7 it was a no-brainer this morning – the Lightweight Leopard & Check scarf:
Like the reviewer on the website, I don’t think the leopard and the check go particularly well together but if you tie it right, it does look lovely – it can be quite hard to find a nice scarf with red in it so I’m pleased with this one.
Next up, some jewellery. In the sales, I never pass up a long silver chunky necklace. They go with everything and help to brighten up an otherwise dull outfit. This one was just £8 and I can only find it on the M&S Ireland site. It’s called the Autograph Twisted Y-Design Necklace.
Finally, I only bought these because I am meeting a friend in the M&S Cafe on Monday so I knew I could easily return them and they were reduced to £9. Brace yourself, they are Velvet Jeggings….two evil fashion words and surely not ever to be combined? Let’s see – the official M&S photo is not giving me much confidence but they are a gorgeous aubergine colour and beautifully soft. Jury’s out till I try them on later!
And here’s an outfit post I intended sharing on Thursday but the day kind of ran away with itself as we got ready for back to school on Friday. I talked about how I like to use my M&S layering vests to bring another colour into an outfit so I wore the pink one with a jersey cardigan in a putty colour and then added a gorgeous new scarf my godson sent me for Christmas which has both of those colours in it. I also wore a Freedom @ Topshop necklace that my husband picked for me himself – well impressed as it’s gorgeous!

Don’t think I’ve shown this coat on the blog before – I tend to take my photos without coats. This is an oldie from Hobbs. Bought for me by my sister in law, it’s a perfect between seasons coat. The colour is a dark olive green and I was delighted to spot some of that colour in my new scarf – love it when a plan comes together..
