I was in London on Wednesday for the Mint Velvet A/W 13 press day and a lovely time was had (more on that later). I had to walk down Oxford Street to the venue. OH MY GOD .. seriously it's years since I have been on Oxford Street and I was like a kid in a sweetie shop. I had no plans to buy anything but couldn't resist going into Esprit. It's not a shop I ever buy from but from now on it'll be my first port of call when they have a sale - amazing. The colours, the styles, the everything is just so different to anything I have locally here. How come the Europeans know how to do colour so well?
I was immediately attracted to their jeans - every colour and size available in neatly stacked rows. I was looking at their cobalt blue ones and am now kicking myself that I didn't buy them too but they are available online so I think I'll have to do it. I was attracted to the shocking pink ones but then stepped slightly out of my comfort zone and picked up orange - I don't own anything orange (apart from some LK Bennet wedge heels I never wear).
For some reason I can't find the exact same pair online, I only paid £14.99 but these are similar.
So, onto the jeans - here they are. I didn't know how versatile they were going to be until 30 mins ago when I got everything out and played around. Here are a few of my looks and I could have carried on with more if I'd had the time/inclination (lazy blogger!)
All jewellery is from my new pop up shop which is going down a storm - I am so happy!

What have you purchased lately that has taken you by surprise for its versatility?
