I didn’t plan to take such a long break from blogging, it just happened. I hope you’ve all had a good summer.
The good news is that despite my unhappiness at saying farewell to summer, the shops are full of two of my favourite things for Autumn; animal prints and cowboy boots (bit of height, so comfy).
I have made a few new purchases.
Zara leopard print dress, Zara boots. Definitely size up in this dress if you have curves or a larger bust. I’m a 14 at the moment and the XL is so tight on the boobs that I’ve ordered the XXL too.
I am pleased I kept the boots.I did dither. They’re almost £100 and I wondered whether the quality reflected that. I’ve started putting things in my wardrobe for a week or two and if I want to wear them, they stay and if I don’t, back they go. Turns out I really do want these. I am not planning on buying that much this A/W and I hope these will rejuvenate my usual jeans and a jumper.
Past season Zara skirt, Zara boots, Hush ‘Love Saves The Day’ jumper (see below).
I have these new boots too.I won’t wear them with socks like this! Zara jeans, Hush jumper (S/S18 sale but in blush here), Cos coat, Western boots. The Cos coat is new. It is the perfect colour and cut. I’m over the moon with it.
I am saving up for these next. I am also on the look out for a hiker style boot. I love the fact comfy shoes are “in fashion” and I am planning to embrace them wholeheartedly. These Timberland Berlin have been calling my name despite my partner describing them as “simply vile” (I’m thinking black skinny jeans – yup, I am going back to them), black roll neck and these boots. Perfect running around outfit. Any better/less offensive 😉 suggestions?
And a few from our summer holiday in my dad’s flat in Perpignan.In my buy of the summer, the Zara linen blend trousers with an old Topshop cami, old Topshop sunnies and Next Outlet sandals. Stories dress, Ancient Greek sandals. On my birthday in my new & Other Stories dress and Next Outlet sandals. In my favourite Stories starry kaftan dress and Ancient Greek sandals. Ready for the beach in old H&M shorts and ASOS top. Action shot in my favourite Marni X H&M silk dress with Ancient Greek sandals and Chloe Mini Marcie bag. Off to the beach in an old H&M kaftan, Topshop sunnies and one of the Anthropology headbands I wore all holiday. I am so hoping I can make these work with black roll neck outfits?
Finally one from the other day in Mama mode taken by my daughter. I don’t normally share these kind of photos but this is how I usually look – topknot, no make up, Zara jeans from 6 years ago, Topshop maternity jacket (I am not pregnant), ancient leopard print scarf and grey Raybans. The trainers are my Nike boxing trainers – I managed to slice up my feet over my dad’s wedding weekend and these are the only ones that don’t hurt!
