Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you can’t fail to have noticed Orla Kiely’s new range for Uniqlo. As a fan obsessive of Kiely prints, not buying a piece from this collection was never an option. The only question was, which print should I choose? Finally plumping for a classic print, I broke my spending ban and purchased based on the logic that it was a winter investment. After all, it is a HeatTech top…I’d need it when the weather dropped chilly. However, when it arrived I just couldn’t wait to wear it. After a long, long week, it seemed the perfect pick me up for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
And very lazy it was. For a start, my day didn’t begin until 11am! I can’t remember the last time I slept in so late, but I can’t even say that I’m sorry. Sometimes I think your body just needs to sleep. My late morning may have had something to do with my late night. I don’t know if you’ve heard of it, but I’m gripped by the Netflix series, ‘Orange is the New Black’. The boy and I stayed up well past our bed time trying to cram in as many episodes as possible.
What do you do when you wake up late? Well, go shopping of course. Recently, I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with TK Maxx, it seems I’m in there at least twice a week. Not for the clothes you see (although, I do have a good look, naturally) but more for the homeware. Whether it be Rob Ryan, Le Creuset, Cath Kidston or Emma Bridgewater…there’s always something that catches my eye. Today, it was my Dad’s Christmas present. Don’t worry, it’s not homeware. I figured I needed to start my shopping soon so when I spied a rather beautiful moss green chunky knit sweater the homeware went out of the window. Not literally.

After a week (and weekend) of long working hours, even a trip to Tesco can feel like a treat. My gratitude was rewarded in the form of £7 sale boots. Who can resist a bargain like that? With a little customization, I reckon they’ll become the perfect winter boots. Watch this space.
How’s your weekend been?
Have you invested in any Orla pieces yet?
As always, much love,
