Well, that’s September here, and summer is feeling truly over here in Scotland. Not that we get much of a summer anyway. However, it’s time to start looking forward to that autumn/winter fashion. Instead of being freezing with my legs out, pretending it isn’t 14c and raining outside in July.
Since next year we’ll be moving out for good, I swore I would start throwing away excess clothes, and replacing the old stuff. So on Saturday we went shopping and I picked up a few items, I wouldn’t normally buy. Sometimes you need to try things on to see if you like it!
There was sales everywhere, and it was payday weekend, so Glasgow was mobbed. New Look had 25% off everything in store and online, so it was really busy. I was lucky enough to nab the last in my size of a beautiful red coat I really wanted. It comes in 7 other colours too, but I’d always wanted a red coat so there was no contest for me!
I’m a big fan of dresses and tights in winter (especially as the dark nights close in and my chocolate intakes rises 95% and my jeans don’t fit anymore) it’s been a while since I’ve bought a new dress.
Although I feel my wardrobe can be a bit ‘dark’, I can’t help but love floral dresses. I bought this simple dress from H&M to wear over tights on a night out.
In the spirit of trying new things, I picked up a little pinafore style dress in Topshop I was pretty certain I wasn’t going to like. Unfortunately, I loved it! That was another £32 out the bank. It’s perfect on it’s own with tights or bare legs, and likewise looks stylish with a t-shirt or knitwear. Check how the model layers it here. I opted for a long sleeve white top underneath.
Ever the fan of a soft, cream colour jumper, I had to pick up this beauty too. The sand coloured sweater in each of my photos is a pretty crew neck, it goes beautifully with jeans, or even a skirt.
I’m always searching for versatile autumn/winter fashion. I favour being warm and comfortable every time! Looking forward to topping up my wardrobe over the next few months.
