Yes, I bought more items in the sales! As you are no doubt aware, I have a lot of clothes from Lands’ End and have a pretty long wish list, which I check regularly to see if anything has been marked down. So, I picked up these two pieces.
First of all, I already have this merino dress in navy and wore it for my birthday lunch back in November and also on Boxing Day. It feels so nice on and seems to skim over my lumps and bumps quite well. The shorter sleeves display my bracelets nicely and the length is just right for me. So I bought it again, this time in cobalt as you can see above 😍😍😍.
Here is the navy version as worn on Boxing Day with my pretty varuna wool shawl by Liberty of London in the Ianthe pattern, plus some sparkly crystal jewellery:
I have so many accessories in blue that will look great with it with my new cobalt dress – here, once again, is the collage of suitable accessories that I posted on Tuesday.
The other purchase was a pair of leggings, so rather more mundane. I don’t really have the figure for leggings these days (tummy too big – eek!), but I thought that these would work with the navy sparkle poncho that I bought just before Christmas. The leggings are in a thick cord fabric, once again in navy, fit quite well and have a nice wide waist band and useful pockets. I wore them yesterday and they are very comfortable and warm.
Here is the poncho, just as a reminder:
So, in the main, my January sale purchases have been reasonably successful. Now, there is also something else which caught my eye last week…
…but you will have to wait until next week to see what that might be!
