[unpaid/affiliate] I don’t think I’ll be dashing to the shops today (although the lure might prove too strong) but the shops I really most want to go to are TKMaxx, Selfridges and Uniqlo. I don’t even know why I want to dive into TKMaxx – perhaps its just the possibilities but my common sense head says wait til the crowds have died down. But, I’ve got a couple of trips into central London this week so I can tick off Uniqlo and Selfridges then. Uniqlo stores are few and far between (as are Selfridges actually) so I’ve pulled out the new arrivals I know that I won’t be able to resist in case you feel a bit of on-line shopping coming on.
I’m kicking off with this lounge jump suit – it’s an absolute snip at £14.90 – in a soft jersey fabric in grey or black. I know last time I posted about Uniqlo, someone said that they didn’t like the synthetic fabrics (the jump is rayon) but this brand knows how to handle fabrics and they never feel ‘sweaty’ or cheap. The point about it being ‘lounge’ I guess is that its soft and comfortable – I’m not sure I’d wear it out, but we will see. It’s HERE in XXS to XL. There’s one review on the site for this saying that it’s flimsy material and a horrible colour – there is only a grey and a black so I’m not sure how they’ve taken so against either, but thought I should flag it up. I can hear the flimsy point but for me that’s a plus – it’s for the summer, so lightweight is what I’m after.
I think I maybe have three or four iterations of this shirt (in white) that is the easiest thing in the world to shove on over a pair of jeans and instantly look put together. It’s got all the comfort factor of your favourite t-shirt but just elevates things to an anywhere look. Pop on a little black jacket over the top and there you are …On me the shirt sits just fractionally under the bum. I’m going to get this pink one to try and break my white shirt habit (but inevitably will add a white one – it’s too hard to let a great white shirt go…). Again, it’s rayon and drapes beautifully in a way that cotton never does. It’s £19.90 HERE in XXS to XXL in six other colours (grey, white, navy, beige, brown and green).
I realise this isn’t as exciting for everyone else as it is for me but when I new style bra top arrives, I buy it straight away. A couple of years ago, Uniqlo brought out cross strap versions and I regret almost daily I didn’t buy more! This is in the Airism fabric that wicks away sweat (it’s only just stopped snowing but I’d kick myself for not striking while at least the iron was hot) and helps to stay cool in the heat (or for light exercise – I wear them for yoga). It’s £19.90 HERE in five colourways – white, navy, blue, yellow and grey) in sizes XXS to XXL.
