Outfit of the Day – 16 Apr 2016

New kind of post for me… I am heading up to London for lunch with my lovely friend Charlotte, and we are heading to the Darwin Brasserie, which is based in the Sky Garden.

Afterwards we are heading for a little (window) shopping trip, before I head to visit my old buddy Alice at her new London dwelling for some dinner.

So, today’s outfit has to tick a few boxes:

  • Comfy
  • Smart-ish (which I interperet as black)
  • Weather-proof

Wardrobe Update

I have been (as usual) looking forward to the start of Autumn. I love laying, I love knitwear and socks and the excuse to wear a scarf.

Also by early August I and my feet are bored of flip flops and sandals – give me boots, sneakers and slippers.

There are a few things I already have my eye on and a few things I already have that I am looking forward to wearing this Autumn.

I love a pair of sneakers, or two and added these tweedy ones to my collection recently. (New Look)

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle for Autumn winter… I certainly do, and picked up these comfies from New Look for a bargain price.

This classic striped knit from H&M

I am currently hoping that Dotty P get these in in the Tall range…

And lastly for now, although I have no need for a new coat and I would definitely spill hot chocolate down it on it’s first outing I am in love with thiswinter-coat-hm.

What have you got your eye on at the moment?

Wish List – Clothes

I’m trying, trying trying to drop another dress size before we get hitched in the summer. Which means trying not to shop too much until I am the size I will be for July, else I’ll only get to wear the clothes for a little little while.

If I were shopping furiously, whole-heartedly I would be buying some ( or all) of the following beauts (which seem to be mostly from ASOS):

flares

Don’t judge too harshly, but I think I’d like to try rocking some Flares again.

 crop-top

Little bit in love with this Crop Top and it comes in THREE colours!

I am in love with this Dress. I have some hen dos to go to this year and I would love love love to don this for one of them (I must not eat biscuits… I must not eat biscuits..).

black-dress

What I can do whilst I am downsizing myself (half a stone to go) is buy shoes  and I’m dreaming of summer so I can where Sandals like these.

The Midi

I think I’ve fallen for the Midi. Not sure how flattering it is on me. 5ft9 means some are knee length and some are ankle grazers… but check out these beauts!

All of these lovely things are from ASOS, which I also have a bit of a crush on at the moment.
