When Lexie Met Martha

I don't normally include the jacket/coat/bag combo in my posts but now that the weather is warmer and I am not wearing my Parka all the time I may just change.
Here's the bag, necklace and the jeans I bought earlier this week.
In my dreams I sport the Mulberry Alexa satchel (which I got an email this week to tell me was in stock - yippee for those with £700 to spare) but this M & S bag is much more affordable.
I think I will call it my "Lexie" bag.
What I love about these "Martha" Top Shop jeans is that they are straight cut not skinnies (which usually make my short legs look like chipoloatas) yet they achieve the desired result.
I have worn them with heels, flats and later this week I'll tuck them into my ankle boots.
In the summer I will roll them up a little and wear them with strappy sandals.
I love the idea of christening my new clothes with names now I just need to think of a suitable name for my necklace.
Any ideas?
Finally, for those who thought yesterday's pic was taken after the gym - it wasn't.
I did honestly look like a fright.
That picture was taken (as most of my pictures are) first thing in the morning before I leave for work.

Today I wore:
Boots - Clarks
Jeans Top Shop
Shirt, Bag and Jacket (Marks and Spencer)
Necklace and Belt - Primark


  1. Hi there-love your bag, especially the colour, a great year round buy!! Have a lovely weekend!

  2. I love the Martha jeans (am wearing them now, in fact)! You're right, they're really versatile.

  3. You look so sassy and stylish! Love the red and leopard together.

  4. That really is a fantastic bag! Maybe naming clothing/accessories will let them know how much they mean to us thereby encouraging them to hold up longer. May have to try this out...

  5. Love how you put the outfit together. That bag deserves to be in every outfit shot from now on :-) As for names for the neckalce ... how about Lola?!

  6. WOW!
    I love this combo on you.... everything is perfect.
    I am sooo glad that you are enjoying your new jeans :) I am certain that with all those planned looks you will get every cent out of them.
    I suggest you call your necklace Petra....
