In the navy

Ever since the beginning of last autumn I've been looking for thé perfect navy blazer and a white/navy striped sweater. Today, after months of fruitless searching, I finally found them at Mango. Sale had started, so I was even lucky enough to get them for half the original price *does the crazy happy dance*
They're both from the Penelope and Monica Cruz collection, a collaboration I was never too excited about, but unlike what one might expect, the pieces they came up with are surprisingly well made. Eventhough they certainly weren't worth the original price, they're well worth the money I ended up spending on them!

(Thank you for the wonderful comment, by the way...)



love the striped top, have one similar but in the contrasting colors, navy with thin white strips, long enough to be a t-dress, maybe I should try that?? oooh thanks for the subliminal inspiration, love. xx
