What I wore Sunday… back in my comfort zone

As much as love traveling, coming back home after a holiday is always a relief for me. I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed and just be at home for a couple of days. That need for rest and isolation is a very short one as after about a week or so I cannot resist to plan our next vacation…

The outfit I am showing you today is a very casual one, with a nice pair of heels and a designer clutch bag to add that more luxury feel. Everything I am wearing today, makes me feel comfortable and I love each and every one of these pieces.

The only new thing featured here is this leather jacket by AllSaints that I got during my recent visit to Bicester Village. It was originally retailing for over £300 and I have managed to get it for under £150 !! I am not sure if that is a rule with all the leather jacket, but most AllSaints jackets run big to size so if you are thinking of getting one, my advise would be to definitely size down…

Leather jacket is one of those transitional pieces that will take through all seasons. You can pair it with the summer dress and heels for more romantic vibe or pair of trainers and jeans for a dress down look. If you interested in more styling ideas, I would recommend to check out this post here.

All of the pictures taken for today’s post are from the nearby village which I really like. It is quintessential British and has that amazing feel about it. Small shop, post office, nice pub and a hairdresser that is all that is needed…

So without further delay… that is what I wore Sunday !

Sales- is it worth the hassle ?

With sales in full swing, I though it will be a good idea to tell you about my approach to sales shopping and show you best (in my opinion) sales happening at this minute.

I am not a person who see sales and wants everything because everything is half price. I like a good bargain, but regardless whether it is a reduction in price or not the item in question must be needed, fit me well and go with everything else that is in my wardrobe. When I consider my next purchase I need to be able to come with at least two, three different outfits I could pair the item I am considering buying. It is not always a pain-free process and more often than not I have to walk away and say no to myself…

During sales I make a small list in my head of key pieces I would like to add to my closet. I will always look at the higher end brand first as the reduction in price helps me to justify the spending. I like to buy quality, classic items that will stay in my wardrobe for years to come. Statement items like leather jacket, good pair of brogues or heels, quality handbag and a pair well-made sunglasses will not only dress you appropriately but will also stay in your closet for a very long time.

I have a number of websites and shops I like to visit during sales. I have decided to split them into three categories with the best of the best items from each of them:

High end websites and shops:

Favourite of mine for accessories, shoes and handbags. Customer service is first class and nothing seems too much trouble for them. I always want more from their sale than I can afford but that is life…

The most amazing selection of clothing and accessories. Everything comes beautifully packed in super stylish box. Dream shopping experience.

Probably my most loved luxury website. The selection of items is just right and the bargains available are always great.

This one is another favourite of mine for luxury fashion but I think visiting a store is better idea than shopping online. I managed to get some great clothing bargains in winter sale and I may take a journey to my nearest store to see what is out there at the minute.

High end high street shops:

Oldie but goodie with the best quality shoes out there. The prices are on the higher end of the scale but it my opinion well-worth the hassle.

I could dress from head to toes on that website. The finish and the fabrics used are amazing and everything is very current.

French brand that have stolen my heart some time ago. All of the designs are very unique and you will not find it anywhere else. Their dresses are amazing and extremely comfortable.

High street shops:

With shops at most of the high street it is a favourite for many people. I like the variety and how responsive Zara is to the changes in trends. Quality varies so check the composition and the finish before purchasing.

For a very long time I was not sold on Topshop. Everything changed when I discovered their jeans range. Worth checking out, especially during sales.

I am not sure why but everything I always want from River Island gets sold out so quickly that I never have the chance to get it… Some of the designs are first class but be prepared to make decisions without any delays.

I really hope that this quick guide to my favourite places to shop will help and maybe allow you to find something that you have not seen before ?

I will keep you posted if I make any purchases this sale season and I maybe do a haul video on my channel ?

As usual thank you very much for stopping by and all the lovely comments and likes !!

Love,

Aggie xx
