Feeling a little Autumnal..

Is it me, or is it getting a little Autumnal?  I don't think we've really had much summer in the UK this year.  There's been the odd week and a few days here and there, but not all that much sun.  Perhaps, like last year, we'll have a freakishly hot week in October.  I don't know... Whatever, I'm over summer now, I'm bringing out the Autumn colours again.

I'm pretty fond of "Autumn" colours. They are bold, but not neon.  Classy.  I think my favourite combinations are mustard yellow, teal and maroon. Lurrrrrvely!  This is what I wore yesterday.  My first outing for my F&F Tesco skinnies.  I think they are fab.  I've worn them all day and they haven't gone saggy like some jeans do and they feel very comfortable.  Well worth their bargain price!




T Shirt - Primark (past season)
Jeans - Tesco
Cardigan - New Look (past season)
Earrings - Home made
Bangles and ring - New Look
Necklace - Stella & Dot

What do you think?  I found this to be the perfect outfit for running around after Ethan all day whilst not feeling dowdy (accessorising always helps I feel!).

The second outfit I'm going to share with you is a bit transititional.  Verging into Autumn via summer.  The skirt is vintage, I picked it up in Hackney when I was visiting my friends at the weekend.  We found a vintage clothing shop which had a "everything for £10 sale" on.  We got pretty excited.  I came away with two skirts.  I was being restrained!!  This one dates from 1973 according to the label.  I really love it.  I've decided to wear it as a high-waisted skirt over the top of a vest.  It is such a satement piece!  I've teamed it with my bargain Nine West shoes (picked up for £2.50 in a charity shop the other week).  I wore this outfit on Monday and felt smart, bold and very happy.




Vest - H&M
Cardigan - Room31
Skirt - Vintage (from Dirty Blonde, Stoke Newington, Hackney)
Shoes - Nine West (via charity shop)
Ring - Stella & Dot
Necklace - Stella & Dot

Do you like my new dressing gown in the background?  £2.50 from Ikea, and my Mum bought it for me!!

As it's Wednesday, I'm linking up with Transatlantic Blonde and The Pleated Poppy.  Happy Wednesday all!
