Distinct lack of sunshine led me to bust out the gold jeans again – I create my own sun!

Seems everywhere I look right now online there are girls sporting (see what I did there?!) football number tees and baseball jackets.  I have long been a fan of the sportier pieces; I suppose it’s the comfort that gets me.  I remember buying this silk hoodie in Mango on a trip to London around 2002 and thinking it was a fortune (I’m sure it was £50 but I got it on sale for more like £30 – nowadays that’s a lunch but back then it was like lunch for a week).  I like my sporty with a touch of luxe and because this is slouchy, has a completely useless hood and is 100% silk, well, it ticks all my boxes!  And you know what, it was worth it because 10 years later it’s still with me.

      yes sometimes their sizing can be a little off – I used to always find the pants were crazy long but not so much anymore and they do offer an alteration service from all the stores too (from memory it’s only about £4 to have hems taken up) so maybe it’s worth another visit if you’ve not been for a while.x

      hug passed on esp. because he was not very well this weekend 🙁

      I love this top – sometimes I forget about it and then it catches my eye and I drag it out again!x

      thanks virginie – I don’t wear them often because the hem is a little strange width but when cropped up, not so bag.x

      thanks sarah – it is fun but the hood in itself is no use at all as a hood!x

    I’m amazed how you managed to create all these looks using very affordable clothes. If I didn’t read your caption, I would’ve thought they were purchased from high end designer stores. LOL! Yes, dismal weather. Can’t argue with you about that.

    • Wendy

      that’s so great to hear! As much as I might like to buy high end it’s not a reality for me right now and I just try to show that high street can still be great if you choose and style wisely.x

    wow, you look amazing. Totally obsessed with this look. Such an amazing post, love. If you get a second, I’d love to hear what you think of my latest wedding post and guest blog for Lauren Conrad. xo

    Great outfit – crushing over your Zara sandals, perfect for every occasion. I love when you think back on a piece that you thought was too expensive at the time & many years on you still wear it & think I got every penny of wear & more out of this – those pieces are few & far between. xxx

      It’s like a gem you forgot you had – like you say though – too few and far between! you should def get these sandals, they are so pretty and really reasonable too.x

    I love your gold metalic pants!
