Ballroom, Flowers & Campervans

Hey lovelies!
This week has been a whirlwind of different bits and bobs. First of all I have become obsessed with watching old ballroom dancing-I have literally been staying up until the early hours watching all of these wonderful people in these wonderful outfits-glide across the room with such style and grace.

So, needless to say I wanted to get involved and have been learning a little bit of the Charleston dance, my ankles are killing from all of that swiveling but it has been so much fun. 
My best guy friend has been a great sport too and learning with me, so hopefully we will be Great Gatsby ready ever so soon.
One can only wish!

I was also very 70's inspired this week, with camper vans and Autumnal colours and fur. It really has been an eclectic week.
My favourite kind :)

I simply cannot believe we are about to enter November ever so shortly, I know I say this a lot but
 where on Earth has this year gone?

Lots of Love

Annual Autumn Wardrobe Essentials

Autumn Staples

As the nights draw in earlier and the frosty air starts to take its first steps, it's time we start thinking about more layering and appropriate attire for the months ahead.

I thought I would share with you some bits and bobs,
that always get me through this time of year.
My essentials,
my staples.

Tartan Skirt

Firstly, is my beloved Tartan skirt. I got this a few years back, from trusty old Primark and find myself wearing it constantly throughout the Autumn period.

 For a start, tartan as a pattern is very festive indeed.
But the fabric itself, combined with the pleats create warmth
and give the skirt a more cosy feel.

TurtleNeck Jumper
Gold glitter turtleneck~Beyond Retro

It probably goes without saying, but you can never have enough jumpers to smother yourself in when it is nippy outside. I have a really problem with getting the chills (my circulation is a complete mess), so it is imperative I keep a little less reptilian in Autumn.

Turtlenecks are a great way to warm your whole upper body.
A lot of heat is kept in your neck and your head, so it is important
to keep those bits as hot as possible.

I got this glittery number from Beyond Retro a few years back and it has been doing me a world of good ever since. 

Mustard Beret~Vintage

Okay, so I may be a bit biased when it comes to my collection of them is obscene-but they are the most important part of this list.

As I mentioned before it is super important that you keep your head warm and so why not do it in style?
Berets make every outfit just that little bit more perky and 
I am a real fan of things both practical and pretty.

Lace-up boots~Clarks

Whether they be chunky, Chelsea, ankle or knee-high- Autumn is the perfect time to purchase a pair of good old stomping boots.

They come in handy when kicking leaves, treading carefully on icy ground or just having shoes big enough to wear over fluffy socks.

I paired my outfit with these brown lace/zip-up boots from Clarks. They seem to go with most of the earthy and mustard shades of the season and more importantly they are just so comfy!

What are your Autumn Staples?

Lots of Love

Hello October: Green Velvet

Beret~Vintage/ Dress~Zara/Tights~Vintage/Earrings~H&M

Hello there and happy October!

Well Autumn is well and truly upon us, the leaves have turned to crimson and mustard
and I am pulling out all of my greens and purples.
Oh and the berets are back :)
As I have expressed before, I just love this season.
The crisp air and the feeling of change.
I went to this delightful village near my home at the weekend, brimming with thatched roofs
and complete with a horse and carriage.
It really does feel like something out of  a film.

I cannot seem to resist anything dark green and velvety these days.
After seeing this dress in Zara I had to immediately snatch it up.
Although it is a little more figure hugging than something I would usually wear,
I am really trying to embrace my body this year. 
And what better way to do so,
than in a dress you love!

What is your favourite thing about Autumn?

Lots of Love
