Wednesday Autumnal Wishlist!

Autumn is that transitional time of year when the lighter layers and the boots come out and it’s one of my favourite times of year. I mean who doesn’t love Halloween and Fireworks night. I thought I would gather together a few of my favourite bits in the shops right now to show you.

Chanel – City Lights Palette

First up is this beautiful Limited Edition Chanel City Lights Palette . Four pretty Autumnal colours, there’s a natural pink to illuminate, an auburn toned brown, a grey toned brown both to blend over the eye and a deep brown to add depth. They’re all different textures matte, satin, iridescent and metallic. They make for a really gorgeous look and it’s one that everyone should go and test out.

Mint Velvet – Rose Gold Metallic Ombre Knit

I must really be really loving this metallic trend because this is the second item in this Wishlist. This Rose Gold Metallic Ombre Knit from Mint Velvet is a really pretty colour with a fab warm knit. I’m loving the ribbed effect as the style really reminds me of a Victoria Beckham jumper that has been all over Instagram. It’s also in the sale so I might just rush out and buy it now.

H and M – Monkey Patterned Skirt

I love my basics but occasionally I love a beautiful item to change up my wardrobe a little and this gorgeous monkey patterned skirt from H and M is that item. It’s super neutral and would be fab with a neutral jumper and heels or boots. I love it!

New Look – Black Floral Print Pocket Front Midi Shirt Dress

At this time of year I love wearing tea dresses and shirt dresses with a little warm jacket or a jumper. This gorgeous black floral print pocket front midi shirt dress from New Look is a perfect dress to do that with. It would be so pretty with a high sock boot, which is so on trend right now.

Office – Logan Point Chelsea Boots

Lastly I’ve chosen these Logan Point Chelsea Boots from Office . I live in a heeled chelsea boot in the Autumn. They’re so flattering on the legs, and they really do go with everything. You could wear these with a dress and tights or with a pair of jeans and the wide heel is also great if it gets a little frosty too. This particular pair are also currently in the sale. Bargain!

Anniversary Wish List!

Anniversary Wishlist
I’m off to Berlin next week with my husband as it’s our wedding anniversary – three years, how did that even happen. The weather is getting colder so I’ve put together a few things that might be nice to wear for this special trip away.
1. First up is this gorgeous red and black skirt from H and M, it’s the star style of skirt for the season and the print of this one is so pretty. It will go perfectly with a black t-shirt or an all in one and a leather jacket.
2. Next up is this gorgeous long sleeve black and white spot dress from New Look. In the Autumn I live in these dresses with heels and a cute cardigan or jacket. This one is perfect for walking around the city, and exploring, teamed with some trainers.
3. Next up is this gorgeous Ted Baker dress. I love the Kyoto Gardens pattern and the style, it’s so effortless to wear. Teamed with a pair of heels and a pale jacket it’s perfect for a wedding but teamed with cardi or a leather jacket and some heels. This outfit is perfect for an anniversary meal.
4. I saw someone wearing a beautiful and unique pair of Converse on the train the other day. I spend most of my time running errands, and walking a lot of miles especially when exploring a new city like Berlin so this black leather pair of Converse with white soles seemed perfect. They’ll go with everything.
5. Debenhams shoe hall is full of amazing designer dupes. I love these Faith lace up boots particularly as they’re really fab dupes for the Gucci heels that are everywhere right now. They’ll go with skirts and jeans and see you right through Winter too. Bonus!
6. Finally I’ve been looking for a red bag for the last few months that would go with my wardrobe and I think this might be the one. As I’ve said before red is going to be big this season, so this Belsize bag from Hobbs with it’s cross strap and its smaller size will be great for travelling as well as every day use.

Sunday Instagram Round up, Sound up!

Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.44.50 One of my lovely friends that I work with brought in these beautiful purple/pink hydrangeas. she had them in a vase on her desk as the plant that they came from had collapsed from the weight of the flowers on it. They made me smile every time I went into her office. Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.04 This picture is a little throw back to last weekend as I had so many pictures that I took. We had so much fun eating chips in tomato sauce and drinking a good old brew at West Mersea. As it grew later into the evening it was clear that the tide was going out as extra islands were appearing so we decided to walk out on one and take a picture. We made extra sure that we kept an eye on what the tide was doing though so we didn’t get caught out and trapped. Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.16 I love this little church in the town centre. There’s a little market inside and a beautiful little cafe too. There’s always a bargain to be found here. Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.32 On Saturday evening we popped down to the Courthouse Sports bar. It actually was court rooms and the main decoration and plinths had been eft in the room for authenticity. They had several tv’s around the room too so we could watch the cricket, and two football matches. Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.45   Earlier in the day, I’d popped into H and M to have a look at holiday wear and saw this beaut of a playsuit. It’s lightweight and so pretty. I love the colour and the pattern.   Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.45.59 I’m still searching for a dress for a family wedding that is rapidly approaching. Eek, only 3 more weeks to go. On my travels I came across this cute Michael Kors bag that tops the rucksack trend. What a beaut! Screen Shot 2016-08-14 at 21.46.12 I went into Karen Millen to check the last of the sales and came across this little beaut of a dress that just happened to be in my size. It even has pockets. Still deciding but it’s between this one and another. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Happy Sunday!
