Stylin' out my charity threads..

A few of you who popped by on Monday saw the two dresses I bought from a charity shop at the weekend.  Well, I've worn both of them now and I'm so pleased with them!  They've been comfy and look lovely, I think!  What do you think?

I wore the ASOS dress with turquoise tights and wine coloured crochet tights over the top.  I felt lovely in this dress.  The top half is such a statement, but the lower half is flows and is so soft and comfy.  As you can see I teamed it with some statement jewellery.. For a change! Haha...

Dress - ASOS  (via charity shop)
Tights - both pairs New Look
Cardi - Room 31
Heeled ballets - Matalan
Necklace - vintage via my Mum
Bracelets - New Look
Earrings - eBay

My little cardi from Room 31 came out again with this dress.. This is where I think cropped cardi's really come into their own, they go so well with dresses and are very handy in Autumn!  I kept the colour pallet very simple, orange and russet colours. Very Autumn again!

Dress - Monsoon (via charity shop)
Tights - New Look
Cardi - Room 31
Boots - CAT
Bag - Marc Jacobs

I took my second lot of photos in the garden on Tuesday, and it struck me how the seasons are now changing... the light has changed, the smell in the air.  I love Autumn!  I always feel a little sad for the garden though..  Soon it will be stripped bare.  I do love our garden!

Do you have a garden in your life?  We're not great gardeners, we don't do much, just keep it neat and tidy. Pete designed our garden and brought it to life.  He did a fantastic job I feel.  It's like a cottage garden, full of little surprises!

Linking up today with Transatlantic Blonde & The Pleated Poppy.
