I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Mine was spent in North Wales with lots of family, food and champagne - perfect. The few days after Christmas are for sales shopping for me (in between eating chocolate and drinking endless cups of tea) but the idea of actually going shopping and wrestling other women for the best pieces really doesn't do it for me; I'll do it from the comfort of my sofa, thanks. 

These are my favourite picks from the sales this year; I'm into buying timeless, classic pieces that are good quality but still have a generous discount. There's a danger in sales of just buying things because they're cheap and then you wear them once, only to shove them in the back of your wardrobe never to be seen again. These are stylish pieces that will see you well into next season and beyond (and make your home look good, too). Happy shopping!
