This unpredictable weather is making it impossible to wear anything remotely summery, and with the rainy days more common than sunshine at the moment, I've reverted to simple pieces which are both wearable and weatherproof. I spent the best part of the day today optimistically window shopping for holiday clothes in London (and getting swept up in a sea of patriotic excitement after seeing so many Jubilee bits and pieces in the shops!), so opted for a comfy, classic combination:

Mac- Oasis
Blouse- Influence via New Look
Jeans- Topshop
Bag- Urban Outfitters
Shoes- Topshop
Watch- Michael Kors c/o John Lewis

This Influence blouse is a recent purchase, and I'm so glad I held off buying it! I spied it on the New Look website a month or so ago, and really regretted not picking it up when it sold out almost instantly. A few weeks later, however, and not only had it been re-stocked, but it was also in the New Look sale! Needless to say I was a very happy bunny, and managed to justify the purchase by convincing myself that I had technically saved money in the long run (ahem!) I love the polka dots, collar detail and bow, and think it will prove a really versatile piece when (or indeed if!) the warmer weather arrives. I also arrived home to some very exciting news- I'm now an Aussie Angel after submitting my entry over the weekend! I'm so chuffed!

Have you picked up any sales bargains recently?
