Many brands are choosing to opt out of Black Friday this year and I can see why. I’ve never been a fan of fast fashion. I have always tried to adhere to buying less and buying better. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the need for a fashion fix every now and then but if we really think about the clothes we love they tend to be those that we have invested in: those quality pieces that are cut beautifully, make us feel fabulous and never let us down.

You will be inundated by discounts for a limited period – this will make many of us panic buy. I don’t want to be a killjoy here, BUT, try not to get swept up in the madness of it all. If you really love something, then go for it but ask yourself – Would I love it if it wasn’t discounted? If not – step away, resist the temptation and save for that piece of clothing or accessory that fills you with joy every time you wear it.

One of my favourite brands, Baukjen are on a mission to give back and make a difference by swapping deals for deeds this Black Friday. They are donating all profits over the four day shopping week-end to four deserving charities: Centrepoint (supporting youth homelessness), The Trussell Trust (working to end the need for food banks in the UK), PAPYRUS (a national suicide prevention charity) and The Princes Trust (helping the young build skills and confidence to find employment during this critical time).

I have chosen my favourite pieces from their beautiful collection that I know will work hard in your wardrobes and deliver a cool and edgy look every time you wear them. Don't forget you can still use the discount code MKS20 at check-out to gain 20% discount on the full Baukjen collection. Enjoy!

These tops are a great way to elevate a casual look – whether you opt for jeans, joggers, wide-leg trousers, or culottes – they just work!

A beautiful rollneck, a relaxed boyfriend knit or a chic, collared version – the choice is yours. All will give you the comfort factor whilst keeping you super-stylish.

In my view, every woman needs at least one beautiful leather piece in her wardrobe. It’s a piece you will turn to again and again and will simply improve with age (Amen to that!)

Remember you can still use my discount code MKS20 (at checkout) to gain 20% discount on the Baukjen collection.

Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
