Mid-week pick-me-up from Whistles

The rumours are true: the only Zara store in Liverpool is closed for THREE MONTHS :'( They've closed for refurbishment as they expand the store but still, keep a small part of it open at least! I needed to return something yesterday and was hit with this giant obstacle, meaning I'll have to go all the way to Manchester now.

In the midst of this tragedy, I found myself in Whistles to console myself, which I like to think of as the older cousin of Zara - minimal, clean pieces, sophisticated colour palettes but with a slightly higher price point.

WHISTLES knitwear (now on sale!), card holder, small clutch

The card holder and clutch are a lot more of a pale blue in real life but it's not a particularly nice day and true to life colours went straight to hell when I edited these. But ahhh how DELIGHTFUL. I do believe that I've found The One in terms of a fine knit, grey jumper and well, my other Whistles lime clutch now has a companion. And inspired by Michelle, I picked up the card holder on a whim to look all grown up.

Yes, the lipstick is new. My thirst for shiny small stuff is more insatiable than a magpie. Case in point!

P.S. Found out I'll be graduating with first class honours :) which I believe is like a 4.0 GPA for you across the pond. Though, correct me if I'm wrong please!


  1. Wowy Jade, congrats on the accomplishments in regards to graduation, that's amazing. You worked hard for it!

    I am also a huge fan of Whistles, they make great stuff, case in point your purchases. As for Zara, there's always the online shopping option!

  2. The colours are beautiful! I especially love the pale blue small clutch. I have only just found out about Whistles but everything seems so gorgeous. Thank you for sharing more on the brand. Lately I haven't been into many stores except Zara so I'm glad I'm discovering more haha.

    Congratulations in graduating!

    What did you think of the Chanel lipstick? The colour is really lovely.

    Love, Katepetali xo

    1. Thanks Shannon! The shade I have is Idylle and it's one of the Rouge Coco Shine ones so nicely moisturing but not too sheer either :)
