I’m wearing a jacket from last year’s M&S spring collection (I think I paid £25 for it in the sale). I’ve kept the rest of my outfit plain to let the jacket do the talking. The black merino wool sweater is also from M&S (no recollection of how much this cost but I bought it last summer), and the black cotton skinnies were from Tesco and only £8 in the sale. They are one of my best buys as they wash really well and stay black. I wish I could find some more!
My shoes are from Next and cost £25 in this year’s January sale. The bag (picture one) is Jasper Conran, I assume from Debenhams, which I bought in a charity shop for £4 last week. The scarf was knitted by my own fair hand!
I’ve accessorised with a long silver chain, a gift from my friend Linda, and a black Murano glass ring which I bought in Venice. The sparkly little starfish earrings came from a boutique on one of the P&O ships.
Oh, the other accessory, the rather lovely meringue, is from Zuger’s café in John Street where we had afternoon tea!
