Seeing Stars {when one star jumper is just not enough}

Ever suddenly realised that you’ve started to amass a collection of something — without even noticing that you’re doing it?

I definitely had this happen with Breton tops.

Every time I went shopping for clothes I’d make a beeline for anything stripy and, as a result, built up a crazy collection of striped long-sleeved tops in every colour.

Now I’m *slightly* embarrassed to admit that I have a whole drawer full of them.

Oops. Seems I may have gone slightly overboard; I have a collection to rival Boden.

But it seems that stripes aren’t my only obsession.

Move over Breton — there’s a new craze in town.


Seeing Stars

Over recent weeks, I am seeing stars wherever I look.

Our house appears to be full of them.

Ornaments, home-furnishings, on my clothes, shoes and jewellery.

I’ve always been a fan of all things astronomical — one of my son’s names means ‘of the universe’ whilst the other’s middle name is Orion.

Definitely a stellar influence there.

But recently, everything I gravitate towards to seems to have a celestial slant; from the shoes on my feet to the pendant around my neck.

Is One Star Jumper Enough?

I can’t believe that — similar to the Breton fixation — I hadn’t really noticed how much my starry addiction had got out of hand.

It was only when I bought a second star spangled jumper a couple of weeks’ ago — and Mr D commented:

‘Haven’t you already got a star jumper like that?’

They definitely resemble each other a little.

*shuffles feet and averts eyes*

So here we go again folks; my newest shopping compulsion. It seems that stars are taking over.

Do you have a ‘favourite’ thing that you seem to buy on repeat? Please let me know that I’m not the only one!!

Please share, if you like this!

    1. I’ve seen SO many lovely ones recently — my fave is one from M&S but it’s cashmere and well out of my price range sadly!! Fingers crossed we won;t need woollies soon!!!! Hurry up spring!! xx

  1. I love stars, ever since I got the wallpaper for G’s room with stars on they always remind me of him, and I find myself drawn to star things. Oh my days, that drawer of Bretons! It did make me giggle xx

  2. Oh my goodness that is quite the breton collection!! I thought I was bad! I really love these star items, that last jumper has to be my fave thought!! Have linked up for the first time and so pleased I have!! Looking forward to getting to know everyone xx

  3. Those jumpers are TOTALLY different – absolutely justified in my opinion! I’ve always been a fan of stars, ever since I had the glow in the dark ones on my ceiling as a kid! Love all your starry items, I’m very jealous. #HomeEtc

    1. It’s SUCH a bad habit — but I literally can’t help myself!! I received a little catalogue this afternoon and my eyes were drawn straight to the stripy tops!!!
