The holy grail...

Yes, you read that right! I think I have found the holy grail of over-the-knee socks from none other than good ol' Marks and Spencer. I picked these up when I was in London for the recent bloggers meet-up and they have proven indispensable. They are warm whilst not being too chunky and stay on my knee without me having to hoist them up every 5 minutes! I reached for these today to finish off my outfit after seeing that it was about 3 degrees outside...BRR! 


I bought this playsuit about a year ago and for me it marked the turning point from just getting dressed to wearing clothes. Stupid as this sounds, it was my first foray into something more difficult to wear and more 'fashionable' and it is still one of those pieces in my wardrobe that is super comfy to wear but looks like I have made an effort= WIN WIN.


Hardly any of these photos came out without being blurry but I paired it with my new socks and trusty black shoeboots. This grey cardigan is another thing I can't bear to part with; it is literally falling apart at the seams but it is just so perfect that I can't bear to replace it until I have an exact replacement. It was originally from Dorothy Perkins and I have had it for about 5 years but I don't think they do it any more :( If anyone could recommend me a suitable replacement, I would be over the moon! 




I think it's the perfect mix of colours and patterns that makes this playsuit so perfect for either dressing up or down. The best part though is the fact it gives me that 'fizzy feeling' and really makes me smile whenever I wear it...what more can you ask for?!  My friends are coming to visit tomorrow which I am really looking forward to as I haven't seen them since New Year! 


What do you have planned for the weekend? Do you have any favourite pieces of clothing?



P.S. Do you like my new favicon at the top of the tab? :)

Oh, i hear you - I've held onto the tattiest old cardigans cos I didn't yet have another one quite as good. My absolute favourite cardis right now are my massive gold lurex ones. It's the magpie in me...

Maria said...

I am SUCH a magpie it's untrue! I just can't bear to let it go until I have found a worthy replacement!

My item is kind of similar and is the purpley/multi coloured playsuit I wore the very first time we met :) haha. Its from Miss Selfridge and I like it for similar reasons you like yours. The colours and pattern are great and its easily dressed up or down. Love.

I'm spending my weekend in bed, reading blogs and watching tv! Bliss :)

PS: Thanks for our convo earlier Xx

Maria said...

Lil- I love that playsuit, it looks so nice on you! I hope you will be eating some hot buttery toast and curling up with a pot of tea because that sounds amazing! And no worries on the convo, I'm always here :)

First of the dress which is shown is very beautiful. It means that when the girls are wearing then it is looking more beautiful. Therefore this could be a valentine day.
