Sale away with me...

Oooh that was a bit pun-tastic wasn't it?! Anyway, there seems to be lots of sales around which would be the case when I have no pennies at all, but I did manage to snap this beauty up from the Evans sale last week when I was a bit more flush! I first saw this on Em who runs the blog Terrible Tumbles, I don't think she's blogged it, but she looked banging in it on her instagram! 



Cute right? When I went to pick it up from my local store (thank you as always for the fab service Evans Grimsby) I was expecting a heavy parcel. When I was handed this small, lightweight package I was confused so I took it out the packaging in the shop so I could try it on. I unpacked a light, thin cotton jacket and I was actually really pleased, the fact its really thin makes it more versatile and can be worn throughout the summer too. So hurrah! 


This is the kind of outfit, had I still worked in a office, that I would try and champion. I know in London work places people have been dressing less tailored for a long time, but it's only in this past year or two have I seen that filtering down to smaller towns like where I live. It's nice because there is more than one way to look smart, and it doesn't have to involve restrictive pencil skirts and uncomfortable blouses.


What I wore: Jacket - Evans (Sold out)// Cami - Dorothy Perkins// Jersey trousers - ASOS Curve (similar) // Sandals - Crocs
