I have a skirt on! A rare occasion, but I seem to have bought more skirts than normal recently so watch this space! I got this skirt from Forever 21, it is really easy to wear for casual outfits. The material is really nice too – a kind of a structured sweat material. This colour isn’t online anymore, but you can get the same style in black and white stripes here. I am tempted to get that one too, it is such a bargain! My top is one of my favourites at the moment and I urge you all to buy one too!! It is so difficult to find a slightly cropped top that isn’t tight and unflattering (well, on me). So when I found this turtle neck in M&S I was delighted. (If you want to read more about my current love for M&S check out this post. You will also find out about my beloved ankle boots I am wearing.). The top is a lovely ribbed material. The black is sold out but it is still available in a cream colour. AND… I have just noticed it is in the sale – only £9 – get it quick here!!!!!!

It’s nearly the weekend and hope you have all some fabulous plans! I myself will be taking it easy after a busy week!
I just wanted to share with you all a recent outfit I wore just the other day. The thin sweater is from H&M and I am thinking I need to get one in every colour as they are so useful for wearing by themselves or with a shirt underneath – buy it here now. However it does appear they don’t have it in black any more, sad times. On this day I wore a lovely fringy cami top I got on sale from zara, unfortunately they no longer have it, it is great for layering whilst the weather is still pretty chilly (as you can see in the photo). Maybe once the weather gets better I can show the beauty of the whole top as it has some lovely embroidery on it!

The Blonde Edit have a few trips coming up so keep your eyes peeled!
A quick outfit post: a comfortable Sunday outfit consisting of all shades of grey, well charcoal to be precise. I said I would show you this jumper as part of an outfit a while back, when I bought it in November! It is from COS and was bought on a shopping trip in Glasgow which I wrote about here. Although I bought it back in November it didn’t go in to the Winter sale – so the good news is it is still available! The bad news is, it must be sold out online but I recently saw it in a few COS stores in London. So here it is on. Its a lovely soft knitted jumper with a cute flare and zip up the back. It looks great with jeans or a pencil skirt. I also think it would look great with a white shirt underneath!

Jeans – M&S
Boots – All Saints
I spoke about these jeans in a recent post. A great find from M&S and they are so comfy! Anyway I won’t go on about them, if you do not know the full extent of my M&S jean appreciation then check out this post. The boots are an old favourite from All Saints last year so they aren’t available anymore! You can find a similar style here which I love!
Hope you have all had a lovely relaxing Sunday!

Here is an outfit Fi wore for a coffee catch up with a friend. It was a wintery day with a scattering of snow but the sunshine was shining beautifully, as you can see. I am wearing one of my most favourite items in my wardrobe at the moment – my All Saints mac. Quite a lot of macs were in the shops over autumn/winter and, from what I can see, as the spring season approaches there will only be more. So my advice is invest in one now!! This All Saints one is on sale at half price – get it here before its gone!!

This mac is great for throwing on over any outfit to instantly give it a classic and sophisticated look. It is nice and light so it is a great coat for all year round. In the winter I just make sure I am wearing a cosy jumper underneath. Which brings me to the rest of my outfit, which I only realised now (whilst writing this post) is all from M&S. I have found M&S has some great pieces at the moment. You do need to be willing to have a rake around (especially at sale time) and try things on but I promise you will find something you love. They often have deals on as well. I got these boots when there was a 20% of deal. Which made them extremely reasonably price for leather boots and they are very comfy. I can honestly say I have hardly had them off since I bought them back in September!
The jumper was also a sale purchase (half price!!!) and is the cosiest jumper I own – sometimes too cosy! I bought the jeans full price and they were definitely worth it. I had been looking for a pair of ripped jeans for a while but was struggling to find a pair that I really liked until I found these. Have you ever bought jeans from M&S? All I am going to say is go and try them on now!! I won’t bore you too much but I have managed to convert a couple of friends to be M&S jeans buyers. They are always a great fit and never lose their shape.
Anyway, that is my (not so) secret love for M&S out in the open.
Thank you for reading The Blonde Edit!

Happy New Year Readers!
First off, we are sorry for our lack of blogging. We have both been so busy over the festive period, that the blonde edit has had to take back seat. But we are back and ready to take on 2015 and what it has to offer!
There has been scattered snow showers, so the need to wrap up is certainly a must. I wore this colour popping orange (looks more like a red/orange in the photos) Zara coat to do a little bit of retail therapy and to see if I could get bargains (*will share with you soon*) as the sales come to an end. It is a great colour to bring into the spring time as it isn’t a heavy coat and can brighten up any outfit as you can see here in my typical all black!
Coat & Top – Zara, Jeans & Hat – M&S, Boots – TK Max, Necklace – Accessorize.
Hope you are having a good week!
