Let the offers begin.

Absolutely love the start of the season.  And who doesn't equally love a discount code.

Thanking you kindly La Redoute for giving us a distraction on this super sunny Bank Holiday  Code is BIG25 and is off everything, even sales items.

I was up super early (ok - early "ish"...), cleaned the kitchen (as in, cleared up from last night's very, very late BBQ), had coffee and took advantage of the peace and quiet to peruse all things that are new and lovely - thinking that 25% off is not to be sniffed at. 

So the obvious thing we want to think about on the hottest day of August is a shearling jacket.  I remember having one of these when I was much, much younger.  Like going on thirty years ago (oh my days, I didn't need to do those maths.  EEK).  I used to work on Wembley Market (on a Sunday and in M&S on a Saturday from 6 till 2.  Even then, it was all about the clothes.  And how I LOVED my "flying jacket".

Shearling Aviator Jacket £89 In an unusual navy shade.






Staying with navy.

Checked cotton blouse in navy £29





Blouses again and we're going for a bit more colour.  Perfect lift to those evenings drawing in.  The beauty of these is that they are so versatile.  Ideal for wearing to work, throw on at the weekend with jeans, dress up with a midi skirt or coated skinnies for an evening out. 

Floral Print Blouse in navy £45



And in the floral ecru - again £45



Loving a bit of star action. 

Star print shirt £25



If we're talking about work - these are perfect.  Also for the weekend with a tee, blazer and trainers.  Into the evening, silk blouse and heels.

Cropped trousers in black £25 - with pockets.  What's not to love?



Tapered now and again with pockets, which is great for the price.

Ankle grazer cigarette trousers £29



Faux leather versions. £29




And then another pair that I personally adore and will live in come the cooler weather.  Wide leg crops. 

7/8 length wide trousers £29



Moving onto trousers and I couldn't not mention joggers.

Slim fit joggers in black from R Edition £35



And whilst we're on the subject of all things comfy - oh hello lovely sweatshirt.

Star print sweatshirt £29




My other favourite outfit for dress down days is definitely a jumpsuit.  Denim is a particular fave..

Denim Jumpsuit £49



Dresses.  Now the thing that La Redoute do really well are dresses.  And hold your horses, I'm not doing long dresses (well obviously I am but not just yet), I have some gorgeous short ones up. 

Bird print v-neck dress in teal from R Edition £25 This also comes in burgundy.



Floral Print 3/4 midi dress £55



And I couldn't not mention a couple of superb (obviously long..) dresses for every day.  Or dress them up with a pair of heeled velvet boots. 

Printed folk dress from R Edition £49



And another printed maxi dress £55



But my favourite is this one, especially with 25% off. 

Floral Print Maxi Dress in Navy £75



Not forgetting of course, the print maxi skirt...

Printed Maxi Skirt from Rene Derhy £89



Finishing with something you will thank me for come the Autumn.  Could this be the perfect raincoat?  Pared back, stylish, practical.  With a hood.  You're all welcome. 

Long Length Raincoat in Black £69  It also comes in khaki.




And here I am today for the glorious Bank Holiday which, has been on the challenging side, I will say.  I'm not the biggest lover of Bank Holidays.  Forced fun.  You WILL spend fabulous quality time together  as a family, as it's the law of Bank Holidays.  Jog.  On.  Everywhere is absolutely rammed.  Full.  Even the park at the end of our road becomes hideously busy (National Trust first port of call for all forced fun outings...). I like hunkering down with tea and cake and movies.  And I feel guilty for "wasting" it  GAH.

Then, half way through writing this, my computer charger broke.  Which means I can't use my computer which means I've had to use my daughter's (after MUCH stropping about on her part - as you can imagine...) which is like driving abroad in boxing gloves.  It has taken me AGES.  And I need to go and buy a new charger tomorrow which costs about £100.  JOY.

BUT I'm moaning.  We have a fabulous day planned tomorrow - even though the trains to London are taking three times as long (thank you South Eastern - no proper trains for EIGHT DAYS!!!) - sort of ironic when you're on your way to a special  Autistic performance of Aladdin.  We've been warned that we'll also probably have to queue for trains... what could possibly go wrong?!  I hope everyone else has had a much more productive Bank Holiday than me - I am gong to try and make the most of the evening and get something cold and go and sit in the last of the sunshine.

Do let me know if you find something superb on La Redoute.. I'm sure I've missed loads of gems.

  1. HI Kat not commented for so long, I do still read your blog, just don't always have the time to comment but still love it and follow you avidly too on Insta!!Know what you mean about the forced fun...we tend to stay at home during BH because we cannot face the traffic - far easier to bbq, drink at home (no need for designating drivers!) and just chill. I have ordered the black wide leg crops - thank you for the heads up. LIke a TOOL I ordered ones last year from M&S that fit perfectly but felt a bit odd in them as they were so wide...so returned them. Only to regret it big time when they were all over the place (which is when I start to feel perfectly comfortable - I am so NOT a trend-setter!)but by then they were sold out. Have struggled with others as am a funny shape when it comes to trousers (hippy, smaller waist, etc). So am holding fingers and toes for this fab value pair. Love your Bank Holiday look and your tan!!! Enjoy the show with your son.

    This has nothing to do with this post but I saw this dress today in Ghost and thought it was right up your street, as we say up here ! The colour in 'real life ' is much stronger than on the website and its absolutely beautiful. Too plunging for me but on you would look fab. A further 20% off - just saying !
    Enjoying the blog, as ever .
