Post-workout shopping at Jack Wills

I've been trying not to spend money when suddenly I was wandering in the shops on a lovely Saturday and somehow ended up in Jack Wills. Yes, I know if you don't actively go shopping you won't be tempted, but what's the fun in that?

Jack Wills is a British brand that reminds me a bit of Abercrombie & Fitch. Their main concept is utterly British and outfitters for university students. Real posh and typical British middle upper and pseudo upper class. I say 'pseudo upper' cos I don't really think super posh people would shop here. Maybe I'm wrong. I'm still a foreigner here after 8 years! :P I don't mean to offend. I really dig their look. Very classic.

I can definitely see why they recently expanded their shop in Oxford. The students are their target market and Oxford is overrun with them! The staff were also super friendly, something that you don't always get in the UK. I mean, like genuinely friendly. Also, they seemed to welcome me and my boyfriend even tho we were clearly not students. Nice :)

A few of the dresses caught my eye. Aren't they cute?

Mablethorpe dress £89.50 or $138 US

Porchfield dress £59.60 or $89.50 US

So I decided to treat myself to the Mablethorpe dress. It looks beyond adorable on. I know I shouldn't have but I deserved a treat. Let me explain!

I've recently started up with my workouts again. I'm still taking baby steps - first week just a 10 minutes workout everyday. Then I'm upping it to 20 minutes the following week for a month. I've got a couple of DVDs I want to try. More about that later, of course! But the important part is that I was looking for a small reward for having completed the first week. I think this will be it. :)

Any thoughts on Jack Wills? Or workouts?


  1. I've never heard of this brand before, but the dresses do look really cute!

    Good look on starting to work out again. I should really work out today but I'm just so comfy in bed!

    1. Thanks! I'm really loving the dress I bought here.

      And for the workouts, still going strong! It's hard to look good, apparently!

      Thanks for visiting! x
