Filling The Gaps ....

I am not a huge fan of sales shopping on the whole ... I just don't see the point of rifling through rails and rails of tops, knitwear, skirts etc only to eventually find something you like and your size is gone! Now thankfully online shopping has cut that right out and you can see what quality items are in stock rather than wasting half a morning trekking around shops. You can also bag quality items at reasonable prices something that is going to last and not get thrown away after one wear, something I did a lot of in the past!! Here are a few stalple pieces I have picked which would stand the test of time and look good year after year ....

Top/Malene Birger  Jeans/J brand    Bag/Whistles  Gloves/Dunnes  Vest/Donna aida  Boots/Clarkes

These items make up the basis of a great winter capsule wardrobe, bringing you right through to the warmer Spring days. I have bought a pair of casual boots myself this week as I needed a pair for comfort and these reikers were in a local shoe store down from €80 to 60 


Reiker black suedette ankle boots €60



 And as I heard the cold weather is set to make an appearance at the weekend  I also bought this woollen aztec scarf from Dunnes which will come in handy on sale for €8. It was also available in a grey colourway on the day I bought it.

Hope you are all having a good week:)
