Woodland Walking

Let's all just take a moment and think about poor old Simon!   There we were on our nice relaxing holiday at Center Parcs when suddenly before he knew what was happening I was throwing on a new outfit and marching him out into the woods to take some outfit photos for the blog. 


In my defence I just couldn't resist.  Whilst I'm no fashion blogger, I do love parading about in new clothes and sharing my finds with you but as we currently live in a flat with no outside space I never get an opportunity to prance about doing outfit posts.   Being somewhere with so much gorgeous scenery was just too good to be true.


Autumn fashion is my absolute favourite.  I love that suddenly it's acceptable to throw on some funky tights and knee high boots, I adore the colours and sometimes I even convince myself that I might be able to get away with a floppy hat.

So far this season I haven't let myself buy too much even though the shops have been singing to me every time I walk past them.  


This gorgeous mustard colour shirt dress is one of the few purchases that I have made.  It's from F&F and it caught my eye as I was innocently strolling around Tescos doing the weekly shop. 


Lucky for me Simon spotted it at exactly the same time, knew immediately that I loved it and practically pushed me into the changing room to try it on as I was trying to talk myself out of buying it.  What a man eh?

It cost £20.00 and it was love it at first sight.  It's a very large cut and my usual size literally swamped my body so I ended up going for a size 8 just to make it a bit of a smaller fit.


The bag I bought especially for holiday when I realised that I was in serious need of a small brown day bag.  It cost £4.00 from Primark and although small it fits in a lot.  I used it every day on holiday and managed to cram my sunglasses case, camera and iPhone into it.


The boots were from Dorothy Perkins and it pains me to tell you that they have now been reduced from £45.00 to £36.00.  They are really comfortable so if you are still looking for some new Winter boots grab yourself a pair whilst they're still cheap.


Let me know if you've found any amazing new clothes in the supermarkets recently.   I'm always look out for a great bargain to celebrate the arrival of the new season.

  11. Aww you look like an adorable woodland creature, so lovely.
    I love the colour of the dress teamed with tan accessories - I think you could be a fashion blogger if you choose :)
    There is a floral jumpsuit in Tesco that calls to me everytime I'm near. I'm just managing to resist!
