Outfit's for Autumn/ Fall

As the weather is getting colder its time to pull out those jumpers from your wardrobe! I love summer but I think I love way winter more. Snug nights in with a cuppa, fluffy socks and a woolly jumper, seriously can't think of anything better! 

The weather in England at the moment is really hit and miss some days its sunny and a tad warm and others its chucking it down and freezing cold! So its hard to outfit plan but adding tights to an outfit is always a good back up. 

I love layering up in Autumn and Winter so jumpers are always top of my list when it comes to outfit planning. At the moment I'm really into the monochrome look and I've noticed that everything I buy is black, white or grey. I feel like I should be adding a pop of colour but I think that brights were in during the summer so I'm just leaving the pop of colour down to my nails and accessories! 

Here's and outfit that I wore for my brothers birthday :)

(He turned 5 last week I honestly can't believe it) 

I love this jumper and I recently bought it in all black too, for just £6 at Primark I honestly can't complain! They're so light weight and easy just to throw on with jeans and leggings. I love the leather arms and the leather pocket. It reminded me of the American T shirts but with a twist. The leather panel leggings are from George at Asda I bought them last year for just £12 after seeing them in Topshop for double that price. I'm always after a bargain! The Boots are originally from Topshop but I got them for a car boot sale and the frilly socks are £1.50 from Primark. I also wore my leather jacket and grey scarf with this outfit. 

I loved wearing this outfit it was so so comfy and a tad more dressing than just plain leggings a T and converse (something that I'd usually wear if I'm just lounging round the house). 

Thought I would do a post similar to my last one and do a 'face of the day' picture. 
So I've heard a lot about Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in the blogging world and YouTube. So I thought I'd give it a go and see what all the fuss was about.

 I'm honestly not surprised that everyone was raving about it because I love it too! I bought it from Boots about 3 months ago when it was on promotion for £5. This was before I went on holiday and after my skin was clear and I only needed a bit of concealer. The tan has finally faded and I thought it was time to give myself a little glow. It has amazing coverage but feels really light on the skin and isn't too heavy at all, which is something I always look for in foundations.

I've got that summer time summer time sadness.

So it's getting to that time of year where you're sat wondering where the summer has even gone. I'd say we've had quite a fortunate summer as we've actually had some really hot days, others not so much...

It's September already, really though? I can't quite believe that I'm already starting my 2nd year of uni, crazzzzyy! Good luck to all those starting uni I can guarantee you will love it just make the  most of it!

Surprisingly in England we do occasionally get some warmer weather in September so here's a couple snaps from the other day! I had a lovely time with my best friend and her son who I am so proud to have as my godson! We went for some lunch and shopping and of course the park for the little one!

I bought this dress in that mood where you just want to 'treat' yourself. I was a little skeptical as I'm aware the months are getting colder but I thought it was adaptable to all seasons as I can wear some thick tights and a woolly cardie with it. I bought it from Primark for just £8 amazing value for money. It's literally so simple just to throw on and out the door in 5 minutes, I'm going to need a couple of outfits like this for my early starts at uni! *yawn*

The boots are from Topshop I have since discovered from my previous post. I got them for £5 from a car boot sale. The frilly socks were £1.50 from Primark. The boots are so so comfortable I can see these being an autumn fave. 

My bag is from Republic and I got it in there 'closing down sale' although I still see that the shops are open on the high street? Strange. I've noticed that tassels are quite popular on bags at the moment so I was so happy when I spotted this for just £5! I have used it all summer and it is really good quality for the price I paid! And of course a timeless classic, my baby Raybans!

I thought I would share my 'face of the day' picture too as I wore red lipstick out during the day for the first time, quite a change for me!

Your Trash is Someone Else's Treasure

If you are wondering where to get ultimate bargains from then look no further! 

I have always loved a good ol' booty (I'm from Yorkshire haha) In other terms a Car boot sale. 

It really is quite annoying when people turn their noses up at a car boot. I think it's such a silly thing to do if you ask me! I have found some reet good bargains at a car boot and most of it has been under £2!

I went to the booty last weekend and I'm honestly so happy that I did! 

First up is this stripy top originally from F&F at Tesco. I've always loved the nautical look and have a thing for anchors! However I kinda liked this top more so for the monochrome look. I plan on pairing this up with some skinny jeans, gold statement necklace and ankle boots for autumn coming up.

Next is this gorgeous dress! Admittedly a tad summery for the weather were having but I just couldn't resist! It's originally from Miss Selfridge and I have no idea why the previous owner was even selling it but I'm not complaining! I bought this for just £2, absolute bargain! It's so so pretty I love the floral design and how light weight it is. Perhaps a save for next summer...

Okay. So I know this isn't to everyone's taste but I love it. Joining all the grannies when I go out with this! I'd like to think of it as a vintage buy. I bought it off of the cutest old lady for £2. I thought it would come in handy as a travel bag as its much bigger than it looks in this picture.

Last but not least...this was the ultimate buy from the booty. So admittedly I'm not keen on the idea of 2nd hand shoes but these have literally never been worn. Trust me I did a thorough check! The woman selling them said they were bought from Topshop but the label has been covered over. I'm not entirely sure why and I've only seen 1 other person in them since. I did a bit of research but I couldn't find them on the Internet anywhere. If anyone has a pair and knows where there from then I'd love to know! I got these for £5 literally an amazing buy!

I think I'm going to try get to the car booty more often instead of hitting the high street!

If any of you go to your local boot sale and have had some amazing buys then I would love to know!
