Loving the J Crew

Well I think it is safe to say that I have failed my no buying September challenge. I don't even think I can be blamed, first Boden go and slash their sale prices to am all time low and I would have been stupid not to stock up on some bit for the twins for next summer. And clothes for them doesn't really count anyway. Ok, ok I may have selected a couple of bargains for myself as well..whoops!

Secondly my friend has been to LA with work. He kindly offered to bring back some bits for me and so I sent him with a list of things from my favourite US shop, J Crew. We have one here as well now on Oxford Street but it is so crazily expensive by comparison it pains me to buy anything knowing it will be so much cheaper there. Top of my list were these sweatpants that they are showing more dressed up with heels and look amazing but it's not really an everyday look for me so I'm wearing them with an old old old Abercrombie and Fitch shirt and the silver Topshop pumps. I think this really works as a casual look and they are really comfy. 

He managed to pick up a few other bargains as well, dresses from Banana Republic, another favourite and good old Gap too. A couple of bargain tees and a statement necklace from J Crew as well. I'm sure I will be showing them on here at some point. 

I may have mentioned before that I really do not like leggings! Or at least I thought I didn't. I disliked them on everyone, thought they looked horrid and unflattering on all and would never consider them. For some reason this week I decided to give some Sainsbury's ones a try and I am converted. I love them! They are thick and comfy and practical and look cute too. I take it all back leggings and I'm sorry for giving you such a hard time! They seem to go with everything in my wardrobe although I wore them with a simple white tshirt this week.

Just testing the water a bit with this one but I have a tonne of things I am currently selling on a Facebook page and am wondering if I should post any on the blog? I've seen it work on other blogs, would this be something anyone is interested in?
