Sale Treasure - the Hobbs cover up

I dragged a very grumpy husband around the shops at the weekend in the pursuit of Sale treasure - him grumbling behind me, placated only by the promise of beer and ice cream on the beach. He engaged a shop assistant at length in a discussion about why there was not a seating area for men. She and I agreed that would be a wonderful idea.

But it was worth it - at least on my part - because I managed to find some lovely pieces, including the much coveted cover-up.

In recent years I have found it somewhat irksome to find an appropriate piece to pull on over the top of a frock and I realised a couple of months ago that my wardrobe was indeed full of (to quote the hubs) SO MANY DRESSES...and not a lot more. But the cover-up is essential. So, imagine my delight when I discovered the Hobbs sale. I picked up a cropped seventies inspired jacket, 2 pairs of shoes (very indulgent, I know), and a bolero - all of which  I can wear with multiple outfits, but I chose to experiment with my new +emilyandfin swooshy polka dot dress.

Dress +emilyandfin bought from +BrandAlley UK for £19!; ivory Carrie bolero, £49 from +Hobbs; pink low heels, £79 from +Hobbs (SALE!) 

The cropped style of the bolero and jacket make them perfect for high waist skirts, dresses and trousers. The Farrah jacket will look gorgeous with cropped trousers such as these from +ME&EM Ltd.

Dress as above; Farrah jacket, £125 and white Elsie sandals, £69 from +Hobbs (SALE!)
Sunglasses: wayfarer by Rayban ; necklace from +andotherstories 
Jubilant twirling. I do love the sales.
