PREMIUM BY TU AT SAINSBURYS: Erm, HELLO! What is going on over at Sainsburys? If you follow me on Instagram, you will have noticed that I have included some recent purchases from the supermarket. It’s not surprising, I shop for food there and always have a mooch around the clothes section, but there are some absolutely brilliant pieces in there at the moment. They now have a range called ‘Premium,’ which is – as you might expect from the name – a range with more luxe fabrics and a *slightly* higher price point (but really, in the scheme of things, not so much more). You should totally check out their leather – there is an amazing grey leather biker jacket for £95 (which has almost sold out online, but I LOVE the cool, non-black colourway. Check stores for more product). Then there is this grey leather pencil skirt, which I would wear with this simple, totally chic grey knit. I’m just working on an outfit post with another item I have to share – more soon! Seriously, GO Sainsburys!
THE MAMAHOOD MARKETPLACE: Disclaimer alert, my lovely friend Diana Bardega set up The Mamahood when we lived around the corner from each other in West Norwood, South London. And from those early coffee-fuelled chats – where she outlined all her amazing ideas for a local mama support network with cook-ups and craft workshops – I have watched her grow this lovely idea into something rather special. Now Diana has set up a SHOP section on her site, called The Mamahood Marketplace, selling a curated edit of products from mama-makers or mama-run businesses – all offering a special Mamahood discount on each purchase made through them. Some of my favourites are on there, including the ultra stylish party store The Jelly Rabbit and Lila’s go-to hair accessory brand Essie’s Bits & Bows. Check them out.
& OTHER STORIES LACE BLOUSE: So Eighties! So cool! I LOVE this blouse from & Other Stories. Wear with velvet peg leg trousers and a contrast bra beneath, or with a black camisole, cropped jeans and a heel for an easy night-out look.
M&S PARTY SHOES: What’s not to love about a knotted gold mule for less than thirty pounds? Not much, that’s what. The shoe range at M&S has been worth a look for the past couple of seasons – and I have certainly bought a fair few pairs over the past month or so (including these and these). But this pair will be your party plus one worn with everything from a tailored trouser suit to a matching (or clashing!) metallic pleated skirt. Sparkle, shine and party on!
