Next month is my birthday and starts the last year of my twenties, I'd be lying if I said I was happy about it. I've been looking at the positives of it all (while planning my birthday list...) and found quite a few. My twenties were a rush of ups and downs but things these days are much calmer. Twenty (or even twenty five) year old me wouldn't have started a blog, dressed the way I dress now, enjoyed the things I enjoy now or worked as hard as I do now (or nursed the hangovers she has to now)... But on top of all of that, she definitely wouldn't have the eye to shop the way I do now. When the Whistles mid season sale email arrived in my inbox, the first thing I did was hit the price range '30 or under' following the theme of my thoughts this week....
Denim Bomber Jacket, £30 / Lula Tailored rose pink Jacket, £30 / Clarisse Colour Block Trousers, £30 / Grappelini Heels, £30 / Libbi Tailored Sweater, £30
And sure enough the best of the bunch is there... There is the denim bomber I'd been lusting after ever since it first arrived in stores at £110 - it's now £30 (and the matching trousers, which are gorgeous are £50). The chartreuse/yellow Libbi sweater I'd been hankering after is also £30... And the faux leather brown sleeveless top is £45 (ok so not 30, but too good to miss).
Whistles shoes are my favourite, I have 3 pairs now and wear them constantly. They're my go-to heel as they're actually easy to walk in and don't hurt my sensitive feet. These Grappelini heels are now £30, I really do suggest you get them. Furthermore the Lula tailored jacket is now £30, and if you guys watched the LFW runways at all you'll know the mix of tailoring and soft pinks were rife - so this is a bargain. The Woodgrain long sleeve silk top that got covered so much in the press is also £30
So in conclusion, some of the best things really are 30. If thats not a sign, I don't know what is... :)
