Do I Look 60’s Enough Yet? – What I Wore (13th September 2014)

Another what I wore post, already?! Wow I’m really on the ball this month, aren’t I? I think it’s because I love September so much and with some new knit wear to try out I’m likely to want to do posts about what I’m wearing.

I love autumn and with it finally coming up next week I’m getting out my jumpers and cardigans to wrap up warm in and after buying myself two new jumpers and a cardigan a few weeks back I’m ready for autumn already!

On Saturday my boyfriend and I decided to go for an afternoon walk and so I took him to a park in Birmingham that he had never been to before, due to him being from Coventry. We had a good walk around, enjoying the nature as well as the wildlife in the area whilst we both did a spot of photography too.

It was a last-minute decision to take some pictures for a look post on my blog and whilst the pictures aren’t the best in the world, I really like them and I especially love the outfit I wore as it was comfortable, warm and perfect for a late summer walk.

Glasses – Ernest Hemingway.

Lips – Maybelline Superstay 10hr Tint Gloss in Forever Coral.

Mustard Jumper – Zara.

Tartan Skirt – Primark.

Tights – Tesco.

Chelsea Boots – Topshop.

Wow how 60’s does my outfit look eh? Mustard jumper and a blue skirt! This reminds me of the sort of outfit my Mom would have worn when she was my age.

With my autumn clothing I love big baggy jumpers you can really snuggle into, as well as ones that make you feel toasty and warm without the need of a coat! I’m obsessed with the colour mustard this year and have literally been pining after a mustard jumper. So when I went shopping with my friend Poppy a few Saturday’s ago I just KNEW I needed to buy one. We didn’t have to look far for me to find one and I spotted this gorgeous mustard jumper in Zara. I only ever look in Zara when I’m out shopping with Poppy and I don’t know why because their autumn and winter pieces are amazing! Think I will be venturing in there more this year. As well as that I picked up another mustard jumper from Forever 21, but that one is a turtle neck. I’ll be sure to wear that soon for a look post!

I love my new jumper from Zara and is already one of my favourite jumpers that I can see me wearing a lot in both autumn and winter. This would look great with a pair of skinny fit jeans, and a white or black shirt underneath with the collar peeking out of the top. This jumper makes me feel really good about myself as it isn’t too tight or too baggy and really feels good on my body whilst I wear it.

My skirt was a complete bargain from Primark! It was only £5 and is perfect for all year around, especially autumn and winter due to the blue and grey shades of tartan. I’ve worn this with all sorts of clothing and whilst I love this skirt it is on the short side, so does tend to make me paranoid… But with a good pair of tights and someone to warn me of any bum shots, it’s wearable.

As I have been so much lately, I wore my Chelsea boots with this outfit. They work with pretty much everything and are super comfortable and warm, as well as looking amazing. They really compliment this outfit which makes me happy.

I can safely say that I thoroughly enjoyed mine and my boyfriends walk around the park. We spotted some squirrels running around the leaves and having a feed in the trees, some ducks having a rest, some geese pestering us to feed them and finally a caterpillar finding an attraction to one of my boots. Clearly he/she had taste!

Either way this will be the perfect outfit for autumn and with only a week left to prep for all the gorgeous autumn days, I think I’m near enough ready!

And of course in true what I wore post spirit I always post a picture of me and my boyfriend, or at least a picture of him.

He’s so precious!

Oh and speaking of autumn, you like my new header? I love it!

Until next time take care all and have a good week.

Sunday Fundy & Burgundy Stripes – What I Wore (7th September 2014)

I haven’t left it as long as I have on previous occasions to write a what I wore post and for that I am somewhat proud!

Yesterday I went to The Black Country Museum in Birmingham with my boyfriend  group of our friends and I have to say I had an amazing time and it was especially great to get the gang back together, including our friends little boy who is a new addition to our group. 😛

I had planned the day out for about a month so it was great knowing that it was coming together and that everyone was able to make it. It didn’t take much planning, just a group message asking if people wanted to go, what date, what time, etc but it did feel good that I was able to get everyone out! I’ve missed seeing them all and it was an amazing day, which I will probably write a post about towards the end of this week.

Anyhoo as everyone bar me and my boyfriend decided to leave we went off to have a walk around, a sit down to take some “selfies” and then some pictures for this what I wore post, as I really loved my outfit that day and wanted to show it off.

I should warn you now that there are LOTS of pictures in this post, my boyfriend got snap happy and we just couldn’t little the images down anymore than we already have…

Sunglasses – Ray Ban Wayfarers.

Lips – Maybelline Color Elixir in Blush Essence.

 Cardigan – Superdry.

Stripe T-Shirt – New Look.

Skater Skirt – Topshop.

Tights – Tesco.

Chelsea Boots – Topshop.

Bag – Nica.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that this outfit made me feel really happy and comfortable in my own skin. I haven’t felt too great about my body for pretty much most of this year and whenever I wear a lovely outfit it really does show! This outfit is one of the comfiest and prettiest I have worn so far this year and I know I’ll be wearing it again very soon!

I’ve worn my striped t-shirt and black skater skirt in the past, for New Years Eve and it was super comfortable then with a baggy grey jumper. This time around it was even better as I really do think my new cardigan set off the whole look and made me look comfortable and snug, as well as feel it.

This cardigan is new and featured on my September wish list only last week! I knew when I saw this weeks ago that I needed it in my life and I swear it is the softest, most beautiful cardigan I have ever had the pleasure to wear. It’s just perfect and I know I’m going to be wearing it loads throughout both autumn and winter.

I picked up my black skater skirt in the New Year sales back in January for just £10! Since then I have worn it to death and it’s better suited for colder weather as it’s really thick.

This striped t-shirt has been in my wardrobe forever and was one that my Mom gave me after buying it for herself and stating, “This would look better on you than it does on me.” and since then it’s been mine. I really do want some more striped t-shirts as they go lovely with everything, clearly. 😉

I’ve owned my Topshop Chelsea boots for nearly a year now and I remember reviews on Topshop’s website being really bad for these, people expressing how these broke and wore away really quickly. I haven’t had any issues and apart my Dr Martens boots, these are by far one of my favourite pairs of boots to wear.

Is there anyway of being in love with 2 pictures? Because honestly I love both of these! The one of me on the bench was one of the last pictures we took before having some time for “selfies” and walking to where I took the above picture. The roof of the building we were stood on allowed you to view most of the museum and it was a gorgeous sight, especially for the fact it was a beautiful afternoon! We ended up taking some comical pictures on here involving a shed, as you can see above but my boyfriend took a couple of nice ones and I actually love this picture of me overlooking the view. I was genuinely happy standing up there with my boyfriend, taking in the sights and on the way back down from the roof we spotted a dragonfly! I think that wrapped up our day out quite nicely.

Just so you’re wondering, this was one of the many results of mine and my boyfriends “selfie” pictures. I love it, we look so silly! 😛

So that was my what I wore post! I went a bit jumper crazy the weekend so I doubt I’ll be going as long without one next time, I’m all about the autumn weather that will soon be upon us! What did you think of this post? Let me know in the comments!

I really enjoyed writing this post, I love writing what I wore posts, especially when I really did love what outfit I wore on the day.

I hope September is going well for all my lovely readers so far!

Until next time, take care all!
