Ready for Autumn


I recently did some shopping for my autumn/winter wardrobe. Being that I was pregnant last year, it was in dire need of some new items to take it through to winter! I've been trying to shop smart and spend a bit more on fewer quality pieces. This striped jumper is 100% wool and from Whistles. I realise that I have an addiction to anything striped and/or navy however I have not been able to stop thinking about this jumper since I first set eyes on it in the shop 2 months ago. It's a light knit with "Voila" printed across it in sequins...I absolutely love it! I layered it over a plain white button down shirt from ASOS. Believe it or not, I didn't have one of these in my wardrobe (shocker!!) as it is such a staple. This was the cheapest item I got but as it's nicely fitted and made from 100% cotton, I decided it would probably stand to me. I paired this whole outfit up with these new black suede wedge boots, also from Whistles. I have gone through so many wedge boots in the past so when it came to spending a little bit more on these I know they will be worth it! They have about a 3 inch heel so are pretty comfortable and a zipper which is concealed at the back making them them super sleek looking. I am also wearing my GAP 1969 Always Skinny Jeans which I rolled up slightly at the ends.

If you'd like to see what else I picked up for autumn, you can watch my fashion haul/lookbook video below!

Throwback Thursday: 23 Years Ago!


It's been a long time since I shared a throwback picture - here's one from 23 years ago! I actually can't believe it's that long ago...just saying it out loud makes me feel so old! This was taken in October 1991, the year my sister Emma was born. She was 4 months & I was about to turn 4 years old. She was such a cute baby! I remember this jacket vividly (so 90's, ha ha!) and I was obsessed with this pink & blue plastic Sesame Street bag along with the toy I'm holding which is Little Witch from the Little Witch books (I loved them so much!). Now that I think of it, I feel like ordering a few of these for Emilia! Especially with Halloween coming up ;)
