bag - vivienne westwood, skirt - new look, trousers - topshop, shift dress - boohoo, pinafore dress - dv8fashion
Show of hands who doesn't love tartan? I am obsessed. Here are SOME of my favorites I've come across whilst browsing online.
I actually saw this bag whilst browsing in the Viv West store in my city the other day and I fell in love with it. I'm not usually a fan of a back pack, i just feel like I'm going hiking or something but the fact that its tartan and well Vivienne Westwood I just need it plus it will go nicely with my purse!
I am so gutted that this skirt is out of stock online as I couldn't find it in the store! But I am such a sucker for a pelmet skirt, I have too many and I love the green and navy tartan, just looks so sleek and elegant. Would look so cute with a white collared shirt with a slouch jumper over the top even though you may get mistaken for a school girl haha!
Topshop always have amazing tapered trousers. Last year I bought the green and navy tartan ones, and this year I am going to be buying these. The fit on them are so nice, and they look great with ankle boots or pumps.
Boohoo is amazing for bargain buys! I saw a similar shift dress like this in Topshop the other day but for triple the price, yes the quality isn't going to as nice but hey, who cares if your only paying £18 for it. This would look so nice with a pair of chunky heeled boots and then do a smokey eye and a leather jacket for a night time look.
I've only just discovered DV8 Fashion, I was scrolling through their site and this caught my eye. Now I wasn't a huge fan of the 'pinafore dress' trend (more of a dungarees kinda gal) but I do really like this. I can image this in the winter some a big over sized coat and turtle neck underneath.
Hope you had a great week, and the so called 'storm' didn't effect it too much!

outfit 1: dungarees - vintage (camden market), shirt - topshop
outfit 2: turtle neck - asos, fluffy cardigan - primark
outfit 3: crop top - topshop, coat - topshop
I love the whole summer to autumn transition with pairing everything with tights, and adding extra small layers underneath to keep you warm. I am obsessed with winter.I didn't take my dungarees off all summer and now I can pair them with layers upon layers. Here I am wearing 15D tights which is OK for the weather now but I have stocked up on the Super Cosys' which are going to make an appearance soon.
Crop tops are perfect to layer with. I put a little vest tank top underneath my polo neck crop top and stripe crop top so when the weather gets really cold your belly isn't on show and you have an extra layer on your chest. Its a win win situation haha!
I am obsessed with this fluffy cardigan I picked up in Primark a couple of weeks ago. It is such a bargain at £12 seeing as they have the exact same one in Topshop for triple the price! I love pairing it under my boyfriend blazer coat I got last year as it just makes it super cosy and cuddley!
Sorry for being MIA this week, but I've been in bed with the worst cold and cough watching back to back How I Met Your Mother to cheer me up and just haven't brought myself to take any pictures. But I'm back and I'm planning on what to dress up as and to go for Halloween! Super excited.
Hope you all had a good weekend.

Who said you can't wear florals in the winter?
I bought this shirt dress quite a while ago and it got shoved in the bottom of my wardrobe after I wore it once (like the majority of my clothes!) it's one of those pieces that you can just throw on and go and if you're like me, a little bit lazy then it's perfect! In the winter I can put a jumper over the top with some super cosey tights and socks and I'll be good to go for the arctic weather!
This week has gone super quick, and I haven't managed to get anything done that I wanted to, apart from sleep haha! The fur has officially made an appearance, yesterday the weather had dramatically dropped and when I left for work and I had to run back in and grab it brrrrrrrr. But I'm extremely excited and ordered myself some new winter boots!!
Ps. I had to include the new addition, MINION!

cami - topshop, shorts - urban outfitters, necklace - h&m
It was a busy hectic weekend, but Friday I did manage to pop out on Friday night.
I went home for a few days last week and was rummaging through some winter stuff that I didn't bring to the new place with me and I found these leather shorts. The tag was still on them as they were too small (didn't try them on as per) and I was going to return them, thank god I didn't as I'm never taking them off!!
I got this necklace from h&m the other day on a whim. I was in a rush and couldn't decide so I just went for this and I haven't taken it off! Hope you guys had a good weekend, this week has flown by already and I'm super excited for the vintage fare in Cardiff this Sunday! :D

cami - topshop, skirt - topshop, boots - topshop, watch - michael kors
I wore this outfit last weekend, I went to see Paramore. This is the second time i've seen them live and they just blew me away. The first time I saw them was at Reading festival a few years ago so it was so good to see them play their new stuff and their best old ones!
Now put your hands up if you're a Topshop queen (guilty) haha. I have been a massive fan of midi skirts for a while now and I'm pretty sure i have every colour haha when i saw this tartan one for £22 (i think) i just couldn't leave it there. I apologize in advance if you get sick of seeing everything tartan in the future. Sometimes items from Topshop have to be thrown away as they don't wash well but I've wash this and it still perfect so just a heads up!
I think everyone and their nan has one of these cami's these days, but they are another item that I'm obsessed with and have in every colour haha even though they are very 'fall/autumn' wear I'll definitely still be wearing them with layers :D
Hope you all had a good weekend!
