After so much of the summer spent in jersey separates, it was lovely to put make up and some sparkly (flat) shoes on for a meal out with some friends.
The top is one I picked up last week on a long overdue visit to my favourite consignment store, DejaVu on the Lisburn Road. It's from Mexx and I really liked the colour and the shape. It's also a first outing for this pleather jacket I bought on eBay over the summer. It's from Warehouse and not exactly what I was looking for as it's a little short on the body. But I knew it would look good with this top and for that reason, I'm going to keep it for a little longer to see if it gets out for a few more wears.
As I'm still off heels, I wore my Johnnie B gold sparkly flats...a total bargain at £16. They're only available in navy online now, though the navy has a leather upper so are well priced. Size wise, I have the 40 - perfect for my 6.5 feet. My Jeans are from Gap.
My handbag is the Cole Haan one I bought in New York and my necklace is an oldie from Freedom at Topshop. My arm candy is a mixture of gifts - a sparkly bracelet from India that my friend Catherine gave me, an Gucci watch that my Mother In Law passed onto me as she wasn't wearing it enough and a magnetix healing bracelet that was sent to me when I was unwell.
And as I loved this outfit so much, I substituted the sparkly flats for a pair of ankle boots and was able to wear it again the next day...result!
Before I go, just to let you know that I've just got in the first of my new jewellery stock in - on this link. I've bought a couple of stunning statement pieces for special occasions and also some more delicate layering pieces.
