it's a win-win!

So......long time no blog. I've taken advantage of the fact we are between seasons to have a little break but I'm back in the saddle now and ready to look at a few transeasonal purchases. Last week I took myself off to Kilver Court Designer Outlet. As it happens my next event as part of The Social Brunch Club line-up is taking place there in a couple of weeks on 9th September. Whilst I had a peruse around I was made aware that during the weekend 8th-10th September there would be the opportunity to stock up on a couple of classics from sought after brands that would normally be a bit out of budget for me. At Kilver Court there is up to 70% off of brands such as Chinti and Parker, Whistles, Toast, Joseph, Seven Boot Lane, Winser London, Jack Wills anth-d MIH jeans (lots more as well!) all year round. Though the timing of our event couldn't be more perfect as there is a rather legendary Paul Smith warehouse sale taking place. In addition to Paul Smith Mens, Ladies and accessories there are also some other amazing end of Summer markdowns not to be missed! 2 pairs of MIH jeans for £120, up to 75% off A/W17 Toast, an extra 10% off Rapha, 50% off of selected Joseph items and further markdowns on Chinti and Parker are just some of the amazing deals to be had! Hence I saved my pennies......and came away empty handed last Thursday as I'm holding tight for some of these aforementioned bargains!

  At the top of my shopping wish list is this little beaut from Chinti and Parker.

it's that time again......

....time to getting packing those cases (or bags in my case....two holdalls between three of us). For this holiday I've been super organised about my packing, last time is was all a bit last minute and I wasn't really feeling my holiday clothing. Thankfully this time around I cannot wait to start donning some brand new dresses and a few older favourites. 

Just a little taster of what we are all set to enjoy ;0)

splurge vs steal!

I have been lusting after these Hermes slides all Summer and I'm summoning up the courage to enter the Hermes shop in St Tropez when we go away to try on a pair...hopefully the store won't be too intimidating! It's not helping that there are only a few sizes left online......I'm feeling the FOMO! However I stumbled across an amazing High Street dupe for a fraction of the cost thanks to @fashion_panic's feed on Instagram.
The real deal!
