...what's new in at Mint Velvet. I clearly bring you gifts - a 15% off code (NEWYORK15 with free delivery and free returns till the 30th Sep)
Ridiculously busy day for me today, up at the crack with the kids and then off to Ikea, Sports Direct, Home Sense, TK Maxx and The Range. Absolutely exhausted. It's the 10yr old's birthday on Friday and I had to pick her up a desk (plus chair, storage unit, pictures, clock and filing boxes)
Monumental meltdown from the 8yr old Aspie after school has left me now mentally shattered too so I'm sat down with a glass of wine and a laptop armed with my 15% off code and an appetite for Autumn.
Starting with a season necessity - boyfriend jeans. Now I don't need another pair of blue ones but if I did, these are exactly the ones I would buy. Another reason for me just zoning out on the Mint Velvet website writing a wish list, as opposed to having to do anything taxing (like researching other jeans - I appreciate, we're hardly at thesis level here....) is........actually I'm that shattered that I've walked away from writing this, have come back to it and have NO idea what I was talking about at that point. Which is probably reason in itself to just have a lust at all things new season. (and drink more wine.....)
Oh no, I remember (duh) - I am still looking for a grey or black version of these. And can't find any at all. Yawn.
Cary Distressed Boyfriend Jean £79
Moving onto their knitwear which I am currently obsessed with. Have been eyeing up similar at Jigsaw but clearly I've been swayed by a tassel....not to mention the side zip...
Indigo Tassel Poncho £55
Vanilla Fringe Hem Cardigan £99
Another cardigan that's slightly thinner but still perfect for layering. I shall definitely be exploring these more shortly....
Black Longline Cardigan £79
Moving onto other cover ups (yes I am obsessed with coats... I thought I might have got over the lust but no...I can't help it) and this is amazing. Would look just great dressed down with jeans, a tee (black polo neck when it's a tad cooler) and sneakers but is the perfect jacket for an evening out - over coated or leather skinnies or a little black dress. LOVE.
Black feather cardigan £129
Now two coats which have caught my eye.. starting with the perfect Autumnal coat - the trench. And this one in navy is simply stunning. And waterproof.
Navy Formal Trench Coat £169 At this price, it really makes a difference with the 15% off.
And this which I think is fabulous - mainly because it's so unusual but is actually a real classic. One for throwing on every day.
Granite Suedette Fur Coat £179 - two coats for the price of one.
Finishing with going back to knitwear. One of my favourite purchases of last year was a blanket scarf in khaki. I could so easily give a home to these two this year....
Grey and Cream Blanket Scarf £39
However I think the camel and grey may steal its thunder. Lordy this is divine. And I think it looks a shed load more expensive than £39
I could go on forever - some amazing shoes, boots and bags would be my next port of call, but I have children to put to bed and supper to make.
Managing to dodge the rain today (even made all the children and their playdates go on a 45 min walk after school in the park with the dog *smug mum face*) but the boots are out. For good I think.....
