I am not one of these girls who has the patience to trawl through messy racks during season sales, I just get far too irritated with everyone trying to push and shove to get the best deals and then leave items on the floor... It truly is my idea of hell! I find this happens more in very popular high street stores like Topshop, not that I have anything against the store (in fact I love the place), but just not during the sale... It's one of the rare occasions I'd sooner shop online!
But some stores, usually the slightly more expensive stores seem to manage to keep the mess to a minimum, which means searching through the rails to find a bargain is a complete doddle. I find this the case in places like French Connection, Reiss and Whistles.
During the Summer sale, I was roaming the racks of Reiss, when I came across this beautiful lilac jacket. Like most Reiss pieces, it has beautiful detail and is really well made. I couldn't believe my luck when I noticed that it had been reduced from £275 to just £75. And they had my size! It was a no brainer when it came to purchasing, and boy oh boy, I'm so glad I did.

Here I am wearing it with black skinnies from River Island (similar here), my Dune boots and a cosy cream jumper underneath. Simple, and perfect for everyday!
