April & May Buys

The last two months have been quite quiet on the shopping front, (the whole point of the Capsule Wardrobe after all , so I had to group two months into one as there just wasn't enough items purchased to make one post. I would say some of these items were very much planned (as per 'the rules') and others just seemed to happen...

Carven Coat - Posted here and here. As I have already mentioned, a winter coat (ideally from Carven) was on my winter shopping list, so when I spotted this in the sale I ended up buying it on the spot.

Longchamp Le Pliage - I have had this on my list for the longest time, already owning the large short handle version. With a holiday coming up I finally got around to buying it.

Zara Trousers - I definitely needed some spring/summer lightweight trousers but finding a good fitting pair is so difficult. These are so perfect, really cool and with a drawstring waist so comfortable too.

H&M Midi Dress - Apologies for the poor quality image, I could only find the thumbnail on the website. I didn't need this at all but took a liking to it when I saw it on the H&M website. I haven't actually managed to wear it yet as it has side splits up the legs and is quite summery but hasn't been warm enough to wear yet. I will try to remember to take some ootd pictures to post here when I do get around to wearing it.

Top Shop Jamie Jeans - I don't really consider these a purchase as such, as they are just replacing a worn out pair. I adore the fit of these jeans but the colour fades terribly on them. I need to find a pair from a higher end brand that fit as well, so they will last a bit longer. You can see me wearing them here.

Zara Silk & Cotton Blouse - Another purchase I didn't expect to make. It was actually styled with the Zara trousers on their website and really fell in love with it, so ordered it at the same time as the trousers, intending to return it. But it really is so lovely in person. I posted it here.

Louche Dress via Fox + Feather - I received a gift voucher from on-line store Fox + Feather (so had to buy something!) and this shirt dress caught my eye as being nice and simple with lovely quality that I know I will get wear out of all year round. I posted about it here.
