It’s been a busy time here at the aMothersEdit HQ with the renovations, schools out for Summer and little Margot being too adorable to take my eyes off… so please excuse the slow blogging schedule. However… there is always time for a spot of shopping, and when the AW17 drops hit online you know the best bits won’t be around for long. Here are my current selects from Topshop, including a few pieces I just had to order for myself… expect to see on Instagram very soon!
Having popped into M&S for the twice annual lingerie drawer update I found myself stopping every two seconds to admire their new collections. The shoes – wow! I could have walked away with about five pairs (I took home just the one) and the handbags – gorgeous leather with striking handles and soft velvet in that Autumnal shade of burgundy that makes you want to start kicking up leaves in your new Winter boots already. Ok – not wishing away Summer – still waiting for my holiday to come around but if theres something you like in the AW17 collections, whether its M&S, Zara or Celine – you have to snap it up or forever regret it when its sold out come September and all your favourite boggers are parading it around on Instagram just to rub it in….ouch… been there many a time to learn from my dithering mistakes.
So without fourth ado – heres my little edit of M&S in stores now. The shoes I came away with are those gorgeous little embroidered slides (just £25)… the detail on them is stunning.
p.s. been using this cream to deal with the dust/lack of sleep – and believe the hype its wonderful and such an incredible price!
When it comes to Summer sandals I like to keep it simple. A good pair of slides, classic straps, natural materials, neutral shades or chic black and as leg lengthening as possible. Understated sandals are like a natural beauty – you don’t need all the bells and whistles, just a little Summer dress, cut offs and t-shirt, and a pair of (comfortable) shoes you can slip on that don’t look like you’ve tried too hard – but look incredibly hot.
I’ve put together a little edit of my favourite designs on the highstreet right now, including one pair I have just ordered myself. Apart from a little sequin pair I snuck in because they’re just too fabulous not to – they all follow my Summer sandal rules and will be sure to make you look cool and elegant all season.
