Its spring in a few days time, but I’ve already made a transformation in my wardrobe to more spring outfits i dont really feel the cold so i dont layer up as much as some for this time of year. These are some of my favourite picks for this spring.

Leggings are my best friend i love leggings i own so many pairs and i have now found my all time favourite from simply be for only £8 there so comfortable.

As you can see the weather is still cold enough to pair my outfits with a jacket and boots but i dont have to fully wrap up in a coat which is bliss.

Outfit Of The Day

Outfit Of The Day;

Here is an outfit of the day;
The weather was mild so i used a few layers to keep warm and i wore my new boots for the first time..

From top – toe. 

Headband; – This is a cute little tie up head band that i got from primark in there sale for 50P. I dont normally wear these but i really liked this and its urged me to buy more..

Scarf; – My go to scarf, this is my favourite of all time its a massive blanket scarf from Primark it was £4 and its one of the best scarfs I’ve ever had.

Cami Top; – I have a cami top on just for an extra layer of warmth.

Jumper; – This is a lovely jumper top that i got for christmas, its a really pretty grey with a lace lining on the bottom. Its from yours but i dont think they stock it no more.

Jeans;– Asda George wonderfit jeans. These are a life changer! Ive never felt comfortable in jeans until i wore these. There a jean material but so stretchy and comfortable. I highly recommend these to anyone. Asda sell them for £25.

Boots; – These are the slip on wide fit boots from Primark, I got them in the sale for £7. They have a really nice heel to them, and i love wearing them with jeans.

This is a really casual look its an outfit i just wore to nip into town, but i feel it can be worn in a more formal situation also.

The Park;

The park looked so beautiful filled with lovely orange toned autumnal trees.

 

I love going to little festive outings like this, to me its what the lead up to christmas is all about. It was a really nice little event, the rain held off right until the end which made it even better.

Im Off To See The Wizard, The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz.

This is a follow me around sort of post and this one features a trip to the theatre. 

Thursday 24th November;

We booked tickets to go see The Wizard Of Oz back at the beginning of the year, and it feels like it has taken forever for the day to finally come around. I love going to the theatre, we go every christmas to the christmas show, and normally to at least one other throughout the year.

Outfit Of The Night;
I really fancied dressing up and doing a full glam look, and as we we were going to the theatre and it was a date night i thought why not. I love this outfit as a whole.

The Top – Simply Be. I Got this last year in there sale and they no longer sell it, its just a strapless t-shirt.
Leggings – Just standard black leggings, i love wearing this as a combo as it gives the illusion of a jumpsuit.
I felt nun of my kimonos looked right so as a cover up i used my blanket scarf as a wrap around it it added a pop of colour.
Primark Dolly Shoes 

Make Up; 

For makeup i went with my Autumn Make Up Routine as this has been my go to makeup the last month.
Then using straighteners i done some loose curls/waves throughout my hair to make it look more done as i didn’t fancy it just straightened.

For the performance we were only about four rows from the front so our seats were really close but they were really good seats. I obviously couldn’t take any pictures during the performance, but it was amazing. There were so many talented performers from ages the age of 6+, and they used a real dog which was super cute he was so good and so well trained i couldn’t help but just watch him the whole time.

How cute it he!?

Theres no way to describe a theatre experience to anyone that hasn’t been but i highly recommend anyone going to at least one performance they’re out of this world. Its my dream to go to the west end.

A Day In The Life

Today I’m back with another day in the life, this is a Sunday edition i love Sundays I’m quite old traditions and think that a Sunday should be a day of rest or family ended with a gravy dinner and a pampering bath..

So the day started off like any other, with a mug of coffee and some toast. Yes it is heart shaped i was feeling artistic!

During the morning i decided to bake some chocolate cupcakes, half were funfetti half were standard. I didn’t ice these as i actually ran out of icing, So i have just left them plain which is something i dont usually do.

Recipe; 
110G Of Self Rasing Flour
110G Of Melted Butter
3 Eggs
110G Caster Sugar
110G Of Coco Powder
2-4 Tbsp Milk
This recipe is meant for 12 cupcakes or 9/10 larger cupcakes. 

Start by sifting all your dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, then in a separate bowl combing melted butter, milk and the eggs together then making a well in the dry ingredients slowly poor the liquids in and combine together until smooth. Spoon the mixture into the cases before baking at 150 degrees for about 18 minutes.

After baking we took our pup and headed out on a nice walk down the country park as we usually do on a Sunday.

We walked for about 2hours in total, we love going down here on a Sunday its so beautiful its miles of just greenery its a lovely nature place with the beautiful water front and beach.   Our puppy loves to run and dig through the autumn leaves.

Outfit Of The Day;

Roll Neck Shirt – New Look
Jeggings – Ebay
Jacket – New Look
Snood – Simply Be
Shoes – Primark

Evening;

When we got back I made ‘bangers & mash’ before putting the candles on to relax and having the ultimate pampering bath face masks included!

This is my perfect Sunday! What do you like to do?!

What to wear;- Autumn Edition

autumn

Autumn; My favourite season, the transition season between summer and winter. 
Everything is golden orange and brown toned. Theres crisp leaves on the floor and the smell of cinnamon and pumpkin are lurking around ever corner. 

As you well know by now I’m no fashion expert and i wouldn’t consider myself as highly fashionable, I’m the typical casual wear person.
The question i ask myself regularly throughout is ‘what shall I wear?’, Its to cold for just a t-shirt and kimono but to humid for a coat and loads of layers its all about finding that in-between.

Here are some of my recent outfits from the start of Autumn.

This week is the start of my wardrobe transition, and i plan on doing some serious online shopping so I’ve been stalking out some sales and outfit ideas.. I have found a new reconnected love for new look of late and have been purchasing more clothing off there then ever before.

What I’m Looking Into Purchasing; 

Roll Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirts.
Jumpers Knitted & Non Kitted – Thin & Thick.
Gillet (Body Warmer)
Bomber Jacket
Bat Wing T Shirts
3/4 Arm Length T-shirts.
Long Line Shirts.
More Leggings to add to my loads i already have!

Autumn 2016 Trends;

Bomber Jackets;– There the new in trend and theres so many different sorts. From different pattens to different finishes. Im on the search for one but haven’t found one that takes my eye as of yet.

Body Suits;– Body suits all in ones are something I’m seeing more and more, personally there not for me, they just remind me of a ballet dancer outfit and i seriously can’t even begin to imagine how some people find them comfortable to wear.

Roll Neck/Turtle Neck Tee’s;- These are something amazing for autumn, they can provide that bit of extra warmth on chilly evenings, and can be used in so many different outfit ways.

What to wear?

When I have these I can then start putting some outfit ideas together, mainly it will be a tshirt for a layer then a jumper with leggings and shoes. Or leggings with a nice tshirt and jacket. It will be more winter months when I wear my coats and heavier jumpers. For warmth I can finish my outfit with a snood.

For Any Plus Sized Beauties.

For any plus sized beauties i have seen online a river island curve collection, its in limited stores but available on river island or asos. I love the fact that there bring more plus size ranges out at many shops that plus sized beauties would have been isolated from shopping in. 

Can we talk about jackets and coats; there are some people out there that say you only need one coat/jacket but I’m one of these people that like to have multiple chooses because i think to myself well i can put on a lovely tunic but once i put a jacket on your not going to see it so i think surely you would rather have some different jackets to swap about? What do you think? Lots of jackets? Or just One?
