Flip me guys – it’s only bloody autumn already! Yes, it’s basically felt like autumn since May (what is this ‘summer’ you speak of?), but it’s actually, officially, properly here now. And while the colder season can be crap for a number of reasons – dark mornings, hat hair, DE-ICER – there are also some major advantages. Costa’s Christmas drinks menu, for example. Stollen, for another. Aaaaand an excuse to go shopping for a new autumn wardrobe! View Full Post

Hello there sexy things! SO last weekend it was my birthday, which means 2 things: 1, I am now horrendously old. And 2, I obviously had an excuse to go shopping. Initially I hit the Bullring in my old uni city Birmingham, planning a full day of shopping armed with all of my birthday money and my fantasy winter wardrobe in mind. Unfortunately, I made an awful mistake.
…I tried to go shopping with a boy. DUH, I hear you cry.
He made it as far as Forever 21 before looking like he might collapse. Weakling. I therefore took myself off on a solo shopping mission the next day in my hometown and was obviously 428% more successful. I picked up this entire outfit (minus the bag, which has been my go-to day bag for the last month or two now) as well as plenty more bits that I’ll likely showcase soon in a haul of some sort.
I finally caved in and bought some of Topshop’s iconic Joni jeans, which I officially love. They’re high-waisted and suck you in really well, without flattening your bum into a pancake bum as some skinny jeans can do (looking at you Primark). I opted for the pair with the ripped knees because I’m bloody crazy, and also a knee slut. I also picked up the long-sleeved crop top as a casual basic, though I got the petite version which actually maybe comes up a little too cropped.
From Primark I was chuffed as shit to find this beauty of a scarf. I wasn’t sure if I’d still like tartan this season, but I love the navy focus of this one. It’s absolutely massive and could probably worn as a makeshift blanket cape if you didn’t fancy buying a proper one, making it even more of a bargain at just £5. I also love these pointed flats, which I think were around £14. They’ve got a beautiful mock croc effect that I was going to show you up close, but I have mega toe cleavage in these shoes and I decided it was frankly indecent.
What do you all think of this outfit? Let me know in the comments below!
