Another Monday morning where it feels as though the weekend has zipped by without a moment to catch my breath. I've been so busy lately that I just sort of let that busy-ness continue, which meant productivity. I spent time with friends, had a lovely meal out and did my usual gym classes, but also managed to get a good few things ticked off the to-do list.

So the rest of my weekend was filled with plenty of Spring Cleaning and I've finally started my wardrobe clearout; something I've been meaning to get on with for a while now. Yesterday afternoon I tackled the skirt section. I've cleared out quite a lot in a range of sizes and listed them here on my IG sale page, if you want to take a look (I'm more than happy to answer questions, consider offers and provide measurements and postage estimates). I'm sure that there will be more when I tackle the next shelf.

This outfit was one from Saturday evening but I had to try it on again in the morning in an attempt to get this coat to photgraph properly. I love a good texture and this Kate Spade coat is beautiful - the best way I can describe it is a sort of tinsel feel, so it's really sparkly up close. After visiting the Kate Spade store in Las Vegas, I was well and truly taken by a coat I'd tried on there, but couldn't find my size anywhere online. I found this one on eBay during the course of my search and was lucky to win it for the starting bid.

I'm not convinced it's winter coat material - the sleeves are bracelet length, which ordinarily I wouldn't mind, but I think it was about -2C on Saturday night so I was a little chilly. Of course, that might have had something to do with the fact that I was wearing a summer dress and sandals. Duh.
