Old Favourites

This is an outfit that comes out every year in different guises. This year, the shoes are new but the rest are wardrobe staples that everyone should own- a great mac, distressed jeans and a breton top...
'Propping up a Tree while being blown away!'
The scarf is the original and best one from my shop - I know quite a few of you have this or the pink version of it. It's simply perfect with a breton though sadly sold out now - the last ones went out to a couple of lucky customers last week.
Photos were taken by one of the twins while we waited for her sister to finish gymnastics classes...found a lovely spot behind the building and it passed 10 minutes or so of the 1 hour wait in a crowded, noisy reception area with not enough chairs and too many bored siblings...
Mac - Zara (past season - similar here, here & here)
Distressed Straight Jeans - Maison Scotch (similar)
Striped Breton - Boden
Cross Body Bag - Boden (similar here & here)
Pointed Patent Flats - Boden (past season - link goes to this season's version)

Hope you're having a good weekend - I've been shopping...surprise, surprise. But I only bought one item...all will be revealed soon!



  1. I think digging out old favourites actually brings me greater joy than buying new ones. I can always remember what I was wearing on most occasions as well so some old favourites bring back good memories :)

    Are those shoes comfy for walking in? I've been eyeing the pink version since preview months & months ago!

  2. Love this Avril. Classics are the best aren't they xx

  3. Couldn't agree more Avril, everyone needs this items in their wardrobe, I just change my bag and footwear for different looks! x

  4. Can't beat a classic trench and Breton combo Avril! The accessories really finish this outfit off perfectly! I love those shoes!! xx

  5. A classic outfit. Perfect! Lynne x

  6. I've not yet owned a Mac and yet I know once I get one I will love it and wear it to death lol you look very chic Avril x

  9. I love when you can bring out the oldies but goodies (refering to the clothes of course!). Just the best look, breton, jeans and a good old raincoat! Paris, Milan, New York .........But we do Mac's best! Helen xx

  10. I tend to do a similar outfit every other day such is my vast breton collection! Always loved that scarf, I have something similar I must dig out. The twins are getting very good at the photos now!!
