Petals and Leaves








Midi Dress: Topshop // Faux Fur Gilet: H&M // Ankle Boots: Primark

As much as I moan about the weather at times, I can't deny I do love the changing seasons. Autumn colours are so gorgeous and I do always get a little bit excited at the prospect of layering up in the cold weather. 

But, before we get fully into the swing of winter attire, I had to wear this beautiful floral midi dress from Topshop. I picked it up in the sale for £20 just the other week - how I love a Topshop sale! It's a similar style to the Zara dress I wore here and I am loving the bell sleeved style. I'm still on a mission to go back to wearing more dresses, so this is a start!

I added the faux fur H&M gilet for a bit of extra texture (and a bit of extra warmth!). I went mad for this gilet last year, but only managed to wear it a couple of times. I'm determined to make the most of it this season though, especially as fur is set to be a big trend again this year. It was clearly a popular choice, as it's back in stores!

I think midi styles always look great with ankle boots so this Primark pair finished off the outfit. I've had them for a little while now and they were a good buy. Of course, being Primark, they were a bargain too.

I really enjoy crunching through the leaves at this time of year. Sunny autumn days are some of my favourite of all. Bring on the darker evenings and colder climates, just give me a little sun and golden colours and I'll be happy!

Colossal Cardigan










Knitwear & Bag: Primark // Jeans: Topshop // Top: Topshop (similar) // Necklace: Topshop (similar) // Belt: H&M // Boots: River Island (similar) // Sunglasses: Vintage

I'm pretty sure this is the biggest cardigan I've ever owned (possibly even in the world) and I already love it. I can't resist a pattern and it is oh so snuggly now the weather's turning chillier. I've had a very relaxing Sunday so it was only right that I showcased my new piece of sloth-wear. I teamed it with another Primark piece, this tasseled bag - already a favourite since my last post.

A high neck top was popped underneath. I think 86% of my wardrobe consists of high neck pieces these days. I can't get enough! Practical yet effortlessly cool - my kinda clothes!

I'm swiftly embracing boot season and have dug out my faves from last winter, these River Island Chelsea boots. Those and my fave pair of sunnies (which I found a couple of weeks ago after losing them for about 10 months. Yay!) brought a little vintage twist.

Just a short Sunday post today, definitely written in between binge watching the new Scream series on Netflix - cheesey, but bloody addictive! Excuse me whilst I watch one last episode before watching X Factor on plus one... have a lovely Sunday evening everybody!
