Stop with the sales emails.....

I can't's typical that as soon as you've no money to spend, you start getting the sale emails galore and you realise you need it ALL!
I've pared back my wardrobe quite significantly since we moved and had contented myself with keeping things simple but some sort of sales fever has hit. Here's what's been tempting me...

Over at & Other Stories, my navy sandal itch could be scratched with these beauties. Perfect for autumn and spring, as well as summer, I'm thinking these could be an amazing buy
Slingback Leather Wedges - & Other Stories
also, if you're looking for a black leather cross body (and every mum should have one) - this one is half price at £32. Also available in a grey colour..

and so much more on this link - I could go on and on about their sale but there are others I'm loving too, including these few pieces from the Baukjen sale - a brand I love for quality but which generally falls outside my budget - except when there's a sale. This is the best time to pick up their essential jersey range that gets rave reviews on the site. I think this jumpsuit is a good buy too - I'm always asked about my black jersey jumpsuit I got last summer and this one looks like a more wearable one for daytime.
Rosewell Jumpsuit - Baukjen 
Baukjen also have some fab unique pieces like this Nadia Limited Tweed Top, which has called to me from the catalogue since I saw it first. It's still pricy in the sale but it's one of those really special pieces and I just love how they've styled it here with a denim shirt - I think it's a really wearable top year-round.

Moving on to good old M&S which has a 50% sale ongoing at the moment. This messenger bag is a big favourite of mine. It's got some Mulberry vibes going on and the leather is amazing (strictly speaking not in the sale but is 20% off on a promotion at the moment)
Leather Cross Body Messenger Bag - M&S
The M&S website is a bit of a monster so when I'm searching for sale bargains, I always scroll down to the brand section and select Autograph, Limited Edition and Best of British. Otherwise, I get bored scrolling.
I find myself strangely drawn to this - I think it would be great during the summer as an alternative to a jacket but it could also work well in Autumn layered over a denim shirt. I've taken a screenshot from the video on the site as the photos of this online are predictably awful
Faux Leather Gilet - M&S
But apart from that, much of what I liked in this season's drop is sold out online - when it comes to the M&S sale, I find it's better to look in-store.
Over at Joules, my denim dress is now reduced and there are some great swimwear bargains if you've not yet bought for the summer - on this link
Melcome Chambray Dress - Joules 
and on the theme of items I have in my wardrobe that I love - my Lorraine coat is now half price over at JD Williams...
Finally, for this post (there will be more as the sales go live elsewhere), if you've a special occasion coming up, the Coast sale has some amazing reductions that are making me wish I had a wedding to go to..

Hope you're having a good Friday



  1. Love your sale picks - the &other stories mules and sleeveless leather jacker are gorgeous!

  2. Greatest picks, Avril. I've resisted and not bought anything yet which is very unlike me!! Lynne xx

  3. I am currently sitting on my hands and trying not to look at the sales! Now I am severely tempted as I love the M&S faux leather gilet! Superb picks Avril! xx

  4. Weep sob I didn't realise the Baukjen jumpsuit had gone in the sale. I've worn mine once!

  5. I'm not looking!!! I've deleted all the emails & I just can't go there! I've done a post on some of my favourites too but I'm just torturing myself! Sob! Andrea x
