17 Items On My Sale List That Will Last The Whole of 2018

I have skirted around the sales, only glancing at items that they have directly come into my eye line – namely through Facebook’s clever advertising or friends bargain buys on Instagram. However, kids are back at school and it’s time for me to go in, headfirst, with sharp elbows, a clear mind and a long term view.

These are my rules –

  • Will I wear it a minimum of 20 times?
  • If for now, will it also work next winter?
  • If for the summer, will I still like it in the Summer?

If I get three yes’s – it’s justified!

So, who is with me?

 

Now and Next Winter 

Warehouse Animal Print Coat Was £96 Now £56

Whether leopard will be the hit next winter that it was this winter – in my eyes, it is a classic print and style that will last here on in. If you prefer a darker print, this classic fit is fabulous and would as good dressed down with jeans and trainers as it would dressed smartly.

Jigsaw Black Cashmere Roll Neck Was £199 Now £159 

You can’t go wrong with a black roll neck. Since the temperatures have plummeted I have been wishing for one in my wardrobe, so this will be a welcome addition that I know will get huge ROI (Return of investment…)

Jolie Moi Crepe Maxi Skirt Was £65 Now £55

I am just getting into long skirts (especially after Christmas… feeling the lack of self control) and love this Jolie Moi Crepe skirt. It also comes in pale pink and blue that would be so pretty in the summer months.

Gola Red Harrier Trainers Were £60 Now £35 

To get a pair of Gola trainers  for £35 is major and makes me want to stock up on every colour. They are comfortable and cool.

Miss KG Ankle Boots Were £119 Now £89 

This style has basically been the boot of 2017 and I don’t actually care if they look outdated next winter as am such a magpie and if it has studs on  – it will always have my backing.

Spring 

Mint Velvet Daydreamer Longline Shirt Was £79 Now £39 

A throw on classic white shirt with a modern twist (subtle Daydreamer logo) and long enough to cover the builders bum or equally tuck it in for a tidier look.

Gorgeous and such a bargain!

Karen Millen Ruffle Trim Blouse Was £145 Now £76 

Ruffles are de rigour in 2018 too, so if you know this style suits you, make the most of the sales – there are a lot of ruffle blouse’s about.

I love them!

Maison Di Nimes Navy Blouse Was £45 Now £20

This top is a no brainer. Great if you want help to emphasise a smaller chest! (In other words – not for larger chests – that seam is dangerous!)

Mint Velvet Newport Dark Khaki Jeans were £79 Now £59 

As a huge fan of Mint Velvet jeans, I fancy diversifying from my normal black with this dark khaki colour that would bring me nicely into spring without baring my legs until they have a bit of colour on them!

Miss KG Loui Trainers were £69 Now £49 

Glitter. Silver. Trainers. A lot of love for these beauties.

KG Trainers

Miss KG Taupe Heeled Boots Were £99 Now £70 

Another classic shape that has been hugely popular. I don’t see it going anywhere (it’s all about cowboy boots in 2018 and these are as close as I will get to that trend – please hold me to it!)

Taupe Boots

Gola Pink Trainers Were £60 Now £35

Gulp. Sold to the crazy lady with a pink fetish.

Summer 

Seafolly White Metallic Kaftan Was £60 Now£35 

Who doesn’t need a white kaftan at the end of your holiday? This shape is a classic and the pattern makes it slightly different.

Warehouse Cherry T Shirt Was £24 Now £15 

One thing I do have, is the foresight to remember rushed mornings in the summer when you a dress is inappropriate and my T shirts are all dirty. I am going to hedge my bets and buy this believing that cherry’s will neither be too fashionable or so 2017. And those sleeves!!

Tres cute  with cropped tight blue jeans and red espadrilles.

Kanna Dallas Lace Up Espadrilles Were £95 Now £48 

The fashion set have been wearing espadrille lace ups for a while but they will be going mainstream this summer. Buy this now so with the first flash of some sun, you can don these at the school gates.

Vince Camuto Mappen Espadrilles Were £115 Now £39

If you prefer to avoid laces in the summer (understandable) you can’t go wrong with these pale pink platform espadrilles. Not only will the pale colour elongate your ankle the extra height will lengthen your pins.
