OOTD: Flowers, Yellow, Leaves and Cold

What I'm wearing:
Flower Crown~Crown & Glory

Hello my lovelies,
December is nearly here, the Christmas lights in central London are all on and Winter Wonderland has reopened its twinkly gates, all ready for this magical time of year. I know I say this a lot, but this year has really flown past. 
I put this autumnal ensemble above together on my weekend trip to my sisters. We just relaxed and ate homemade banoffe pie and drank extra sugary tea, it was lovely to see her as always.
I have fallen head over heels in love with the shop Monki, I had seen other bloggers wearing bits and bobs from the store and felt like I should really get a piece of this new fashion haven. I went to the Carnaby street store and picked up this lovely velvet skirt, the skirt is actually really rather heavy, which I really like and I am able to wear it with absolutly everything. 

I know I promised a DIY post, which I will be posting very shortly. Until then I hope everyone is happy and cosy.

Autumn Leaves & Candy Stripes

Headpiece~Old necklace
Dress~River Island

Hello lovelies,
November has arrived, along with a lot of rain & dim lit days, but despite all that this month is going pretty well so far. My sister and I managed to get a cheeky walk in before the downpours began and the trees still had a few colourful leaves. I wore my candy striped dress from River Island, I had read a lot of hype around it and seen other bloggers wearing it, but sadly it was a bit out of my price range back in my student days in early summer. But when I saw this pastel beauty hanging on the sale rail I was delighted to make it mine at last. I think this was definitely the last day I will be able to pose without tights, as it is absolutely freezing outside. But Christmas is fast approaching and that means endless cosy days and I cannot wait for those.

I have some DIY type posts planned for this week, as I haven't done one for ages! 

How are you spending your November?

OOTD: Lilypads & Pink Ginham

White Shirt~Photostorms Giveaway

Hello you lovely lot! Around this time of year I love nothing more than a good old walk. Crunchy autumnal leaves and cooler afternoons make me very content on a day off. I wore this little gingham number I picked up from etsy, it is so perfect for popping over any old shirt and fits right in with my love of this print. My trusty pineapple bag also made an appearance on my stroll!
As you can probably tell, my lack of blogging has been truly terrible and I was extra lucky that my sister took several outfit snaps over the weekend so I can blog after my shifts. So I am no longer going to neglect my little blog and hope to have it filled with bits and bobs again by Halloween.

Hope you all are ok and enjoying the dryer days of this month.

Corduroy, Miniature House & Beret

Blouse~ Miss Selfridge
Hello beauties,
I am so excited for Halloween next week, any excuse to dress up and it be acceptable is ok in my books! I am unsure of what I will be doing as of yet, but I already have a few outfit ideas, including one which I have to wear for work on Wednesday. I was so excited that work is having a whole day of spooky dress up too!
My outfit above was quite a simple ensemble, mainly black & white with little hints of green. I love my Edwardian blouse, but never really wear it enough; I thought I would dust off its cobwebs and wear it this week. Primark has been great recently and I love this new corduroy dunaree pinafore. It looks good over any old thing and is fast becoming one of my favourite items this season.
My love of novelty bags continues with this little house and I am still on the look out for the perfect cat bag, so if anyone has any suggestions on where to purchase one I would love to know.

Hope you are all well, is anyone doing anything exciting for Halloween?

Hello dearest readers!
Let me start by saying I apologise for my lack of posts recently, I have gotten the work bug and simply have not had enough time to take outfit pictures. By the time I have gotten home the sky is a blue hue and not the best for taking photos in my bright old outfits. But I now have a whole two weeks off work, hooray! Which means a lot more time will be dedicated to my blog. 
Anyway with all that out of the way let me talk about this red number I was sporting today. I have always been a fan of all things floaty, colourful or looks like something that should be in an old fashioned musical. I spotted this vintage Austrian dress on ebay about two months ago and was so in love with it but unsure on whether to purchase it. I have always been a lover of traditional Austrian costumes and the connotations to the Sound Of Music and so a few days ago I gave in and bought it. Needless to say I have been spinning and frolicking around in it ever since, including today when I convinced my boyfriend to take a few snaps of me hopping in the grass and amongst the berries. Now all I need is the perfect Autumnal event to wear it properly and make the most of its puffy sleeves and full skirt.

I will be posting lots more this week and updating you on the lovely weekend I have had. Almost October now, time for hot water bottles, chai tea and cosy nights in-exciting.

OOTD: September Tartan

Bag~Chairty shop

Hello lovelies! I can't believe we have already breezed into September, is it just me or has this year been going incredibly fast? Brrr, Oh my there was a bit of a chill in the air this weekend, it is starting to feel all Autumnal-my favourite season of them all!  I went to Hyde Park festival on Saturday and was absolutely chilled to the bone by midday, it rained and poured and then the sun came out and we all got sun burned. It was a very weird mix of weather, but the music was nice and it was great to have a day off work and wear my new dress. I spotted this tartan number in Primark at the beginning of the week, I saw a blur of red patterned fabric in the corner of my eye and immediately fell in love with it when my head turned. Primark have some really nice things at the moment, I need to pick up some bits and bobs next week and might try and grab some of the things I spied before. For only £15 I thought this dress was a great buy and the collar and bow detail really add to the sweetness of it. As usual despite the rain I decided to go a bit mad with colour co-ordination, hence the red bows etc. I think this season I really need to invest in a pair of trousers, as I officially own none except Pajama trousers- if only they were acceptable to go to work in!

How has everyone spent the first week of the new month? Are you looking forward to the new season?
