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.

What I wore (13th July 2013)

I can’t believe it’s been nearly 4 months since my last what I wore post, it’s been ages hasn’t it? However, as regular readers will know I’ve been going through a rough patch since March, so the last of what I wore posts was to be expected.

But I’m back and I have someone else who can take my pictures now, my partner. He did an awesome job and I’m really pleased with how the pictures turned out!

On the hottest day of the year (so far anyway) we decided to go out into the countryside for a drive and a walk around. We didn’t have a clue to go and just went left or right at junctions, hoping to get ourselves somewhere random. We ended up in Leamington Spa and went to a lovely park there. We walked around for ages, even went through dark woods, stinging nettles and some nats to get to where we wanted to explore.

It was a lovely day and I’m excited at the aspect of doing it again, my partner is awesome when it comes to adventures.

Dress – Dorothy Perkins.

Spiked flats – Topshop.

Pink see through clutch – New Look.

Wayfarer sunglasses – Ray Ban.

Necklace – Present from my Mom.

I love this dress so much, I spoke about it briefly in this post after my Mom buying it me whilst we were out shopping. It’s light, looks cute for spring and summer and will compliment any figure, it also makes your bum and boobs look a little bigger than they actually are and your tummy smaller than it actually is. I couldn’t wait to wear this out, the first time was for my aunts birthday and second time for our little adventure.

I teamed this look up with my spiked flats, I love spikes and no matter what season it is, I’ll be wearing them. They were perfect walking shoes and looked great with the outfit, showed I’m not just dainty and innocent in my floral pink dress!

I bought my clutch bag on Wednesday and have been using it all weekend. I love this bag so much! I remember at the start of the year when fashion bloggers were going crazy for them and I was one of them. I scoured the internet for hours trying to find one but the only place I had luck with was eBay, but because everyone wanted one like myself they were mostly sold out, only coming in a clear black. Who wants clear black, I mean why does that even exist!? I’d spied the clear and see through pink clutches in New Look for a while now and thought, why not? For £9.99 it’s been worth every penny and a bag I know I’ll use throughout the summer for nights out, hell maybe even winter too!

Finally you can’t go wrong with a pair of Ray Bans. Every year like every garment and accessory you wear, sunglasses change to suit the trend of the season but Ray Bans NEVER go out of style! I’ve owned my Wayfarers just over a year now and I love them, they’ll look great year after year and because of this they were worth every penny I paid for them. If you have thought about getting a pair of Ray Bans whether they be Wayfarers, Aviators or Clubmasters, then I say go for it if you have the money because they’ll look amazing!

I really like what I wore out over the weekend and I know I would wear it out again!

Yesterday was so much fun, I haven’t been out like that for months so it was nice to get out and have a relaxing drive, walk and just to talk and relax and I couldn’t have chosen a better person to have done that with. 🙂

I’m just excited for more days out like this in the future! 😀

During out walk we stumbled across a little kids playground. The tire swing was broken, much to my distraught as I love tire swings! However we did find some weird sort of swing contraption that we both had a play on. It was really weird and if I had of been wearing jeans or a pair of shorts with my skate shoes, I’d have been more inclined to have stood up on it like my partner did. However as you can see I just sat on it, trying to look as ladylike as possible.

I’d love to go back to this park we visited, it was so beautiful and will be an amazing place to visit during the autumn season when everything is orange and red, oh beautiful!

I hope you enjoyed this what I wore post, I’ve missed doing them so much and with my partner being so willing (and better than my parents at taking the pictures may I add!) to take my pictures for them, I can see them popping up more often now.

What did you wear nice and cooling on the hottest day of the year? Let me know in the comments and tag a picture if you want to!

I’m off to go and sit outside in the sunshine before my partner gets back home, hope your week has gone off to a flying start, see you soon.
