Autumn leaves

Primark mac, Primark top, thrifted jeans, Topshop pumps, Fossil bag, Accessorize headband vintage scarf

Every girl should own a classic mac! This beauty from Primark is the perfect autumnal cover up. Paired with a cosy cardigan and snuggly scarf, it’ll take me right through to the depths of winter when I’ll break out my fab Diesel parka!
I’m heading out to do some more charity shop shopping today… hopefully I’ll come back with an armful of goodies to share with you all! Hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday, whatever you’re doing. 🙂

Sitting pretty

H&M tunic, Topshop leggings, Office boots, Primark cardigan, Accessorize headband, random bangles

I love a good headband. I think wearing one can really pull an outfit together and this navy blue one finishes mine off perfectly.
So, it’s Friday night and thank goodness for that! I’ve got a weekend of charity shopping, family visiting and X Factor watching ahead – how about you?

Free love

Thrifted dress, Primark cardigan, M&S tights, Dune sandals, Fossil bag, H&M belt

First of all, let me say – I have fallen in love with this dress. I picked it up at a charity shop a few months ago and was pretty disappointed when I got it home – I couldn’t think of a way to style it, it didn’t seem to go with anything in my wardrobe and it’s a really clingy jersey fabric so I didn’t think it could ever be flattering! I put it down to an impulse buy after a long day hunting and threw it in a drawer.
Last night I decided to take action. I tried it with a few different things and ended up at the outfit I wore today. Because the dress is so clingy, I used the cardigan to disguise my lumps and bumps and belted it to give shape. The tights are purple (they always look black in these photos!) and the accessories are tan, both to bring out the colours in the dress. I think it works pretty well!
PS. How AWESOME are the shoes?! I have to admit, I didn’t wear them for work… they’re waaaay too high! I wore vintage green leather Mary Janes instead, but think these look loads better.

Black and gold

Primark dress, Accessorize tights, H&M cardigan, thrifted shoe boots, thrifted ring, thrifted necklace

Most of my tights are from M&S but I bought these yellow beauties from Accessorize and think I’ve been converted! They’re SO comfortable and the colour is deliciously rich. Like my legs have been dipped in yellow paint! Wearing yellow makes me feel so happy and smiley. Happy Wednesday! 🙂

My dirty little secret

Posted in Fashion.

Now, I’m a pretty organised girl. I never have chipped nails. My handwriting is neat. I always remembered my P.E. kit at school. So why does my wardrobe look like this?! I can only blame it on my creative mind… ahem…
I’m a habitual clearer – every three months I pull everything out and I’m brutal with my eBay/charity shop/bin piles. When that’s all done, I fastidiously organise my wardrobe, line up all my shoes and admire the results. Lovely.
One week later… see photo. Anyone else have similar problems?
