Hello! It's been a while.
I have to confess, I haven't bought much for me in the past year of Bargainista Baby's life. This is only my second purchase of 2014! (The first was a dress for his christening, but that's for another blog post.)
But I had to share this Selected sweatshirt with you pronto as it's such a bargain: £17 in the ASOS sale with an extra 15% off with the code GET15 makes it just over £14. With an original price tag of £60, that's more than a 75% saving.
Plus, you get two trends in one: sporty AND slogan. My favourite touch is the back-to-front 'e' which spells out 'love' when I look in the mirror. A small but pleasing detail.
This Selected sweatshirt is great for layering; it's generously oversized but short and neat so it doesn't swamp.
I missed out on the slogan sweats at Whistles this summer, which carried phrases such as 'Je ne regrette rien' and 'jolie', so this is the next best thing. (Talking of Whistles, Whistles menswear launched today!)
Now, I'll admit, I chose this sweatshirt for its baby-friendly attributes (grey is a great colour for disguising dribble and food stains and cotton-jersey is comfy and practical for running around after a little one), but the best thing of all? I don't feel like a mum in it. Now that's revolutionary.
