a stripey summer - 2013

I love a good sale.

I'm cheap and I don't care who knows it.

Thing is, sometimes you lose out if you wait and wait and stalk a website waiting, waiting for the sale to start as I did this year after much coveting of this Great Plains striped maxi skirt....

...the sale started, I went to buy it and it had bloody sold out.  Sad face indeed.

So I've been rooting around trying to find another one that's similar (and also in a sale) and I found these lovely striped sale things.  I'm thinking the Anthropologie skirt might well be a winner especially seeing as I can wear it in freezing cold Blighty and I don't have to shave my legs! Result.

::update:: this skirt will not be mine either as it is now only available in XS and XL!  Is it just me or is everyone buying striped maxi skirts this summer?

I normally like my stripes in monochrome but this blue and yellow dress sure is pretty.

I do love this Boden dress, I think it's the second time I've featured it on the blog so am really feeling the love.  Just wish they did a skirt version.

Hey there

Got something on your mind?

Did I make you laugh, cry or even spit feathers?

Tell me, tell me, I appreciate all feedback and love a good chat. I even turned that stupid word verification off to make it easier for you to do so.
