Forget all attempts at minimalism.

I've gone mad. Is there a full moon?  A quick tally of my in-box reveals err... about 6 online orders pending.  That doesn't count a smattering of eBay purchases either. Oops. (However, eBay doesn't count as it's classed as recyling of the finest order. Fact!)

First up - another pair of Boyfriend jeans. Don't do things by halves, do I? One minute she detests them, the next they are multiplying like mad.

I blame this purchase on (a) Red Magazine (bought solely for free Elemis skin care), which had a feature on Selfridges' new denim studio; and (b) the novelty of being able to buy Primark online...(from Selfridges no less!)

I await delivery of the Primark boyfriend jean offering. Has anyone else tried them?

I must say, although a late convert to the 'boyfriend' style, I am loving them... the insouciant (she fondly hopes!) shape, the cuffed hem, the looser, slouchier (more forgiving?) fit, and the fact that they stay up unbelted (higher rise?)

The looser fit is also a comfortable option for the warmer weather.  Not that they will be limited to summer wear. Autumn-mad woman that I am, I have already tried with boots. I looked just like (a demented female version of) young Jim 'down the farm' about to go into the milking parlour...!! (Not saying that's necessarily a good thing... but the look certainly didn't scream 'try hard'!)

Primark, £11

I was inspired by Susie SoSo's fab jersey biker jacket find from Tesco, which incidentally is now even more of a fab find as it's been reduced to £7, but tragically, there were none in stock in my size. Can't see it on the website, but there were still a few in store today. Absolutely gutted. (The White Company one had better be worth the extra!)

Love the anticipation of new parcels arriving. And it's my birthday this I am justified in splashing out a teeny bit. 


  1. Love the White Company jacket - will be interested to hear what it's like in 'real life' And have a lovely birthday this week - definitely the right week to have parcels arriving at your door!

  2. Isn't the waiting, the best bit of online shopping? You get the kick of hunting out a purchase and then the fun of anticipation. I like getting back from holiday and having a few parcels waiting, it makes being home even better!

  3. Happy Birthday for this week - we share a birthday week! Love the look of the White Company jacket - may have a little look with some birthday money :) Look forward to seeing your purchases! X

  4. Happy birthday! Hope you get lots of lovely parcels - self bought or otherwise. And do tell on the White Company jacket - hope its good for you! I saw my jacket in the sale at £7 - crikey - what can you get for £7 these days (well a jacket obviously)!

    And you're making up for lost time on the boyfriends aren't you? Silly comfy.
