Some of you may have seen on Instagram and Facebook, that last week, I popped into M&S for some milk and leopard heels (as you do) and spotted navy suede ankle boots (just like the taupe ones I'd been admiring on Natalie from Glamrosie earlier that day). Just one pair left, in my size, in the sale. It was like the ankle boot gods were speaking to me.
Buying them then prompted a memory that on a similar mission a few months ago (for milk but not leopard heels), I bought these floral jeans in the Sainsbury's sale for about £5. I loved the pattern but they are a short leg so I had put them away until the weather warms up (ha!) to wear with pumps. Out they came as I knew they would be perfect with my new boots!
And here are the jeans a bit closer up
I partnered them with a Dorothy Perkins navy top, layered with a white vest and a white long sleeved top and popped on a contrasting striped scarf that picked up the grey from the floral pattern..
And here it is all together...
Add on a navy wool pea coat and I'm good to go!

Love when a plan comes together! And I also love getting some wear from winter items bought for a bargain price in the sales at this time of year. Husband thinks we should get a milkman.
As you can see, the white stuff lingers on. We had an avalanche from our roof this morning which took some of our down pipe with it. A slightly alarming start to the birthday celebrations for my son, now a big boy of 9. But we all cheered up when the cake and top hats came out...yum yum. Have a great day!
