Whilst I do love autumn (it’s my favourite season), each and every year …autumn makes me ill! There, I said it and I won’t take it back. The change of season triggers my asthma and makes me susceptible to infection. For the past 11 days, I’ve been battling a viral and bacterial infection (something I didn’t think was even possible!) Thanks to the doctor, I’m now fully medicated and ready to kick some blogging ass! Woopah!
Like I said, I love autumn. Fallen leaves, autumnal colours and the increasing nip in the air- lush! I know I’m not alone when I say that one of my favourite autumn colours is burnt orange. So this old blouse with its cute scallop neckline was such a welcome surprise find! Do you ever find things in your wardrobe that you forgot you owned? This is a blouse that I bought in New Look around five years ago, it makes its resplendent return each September and returns to the abyss by November.
Remember these foxy tights? They made their blog debut this time last year and right on cue, they’re out and on again almost a year to the day! And I was thinking about getting my hair cut. And I was talking about wearing autumn favourites. Some things never change!
What is new, is my pinafore! Sometimes, buying autumn/winter clothes in the middle of summer really does pay off. There’s no doubt that you’ve probably already seen this dress featured on another blog by now, it’s from Primark. I bought mine in August during an after work shopping spree when I worked for Lindy Bop in Manchester. It’s made from a lightweight corduroy material and matches so many of the tops already in my wardrobe.
Which brings me back to my original point. Shopping my wardrobe. Recently, I’ve been shopping on the high street and have upped my charity shop game. What have I bought? A handful of cardigans for work, a smock dress, a mustard blouse: nothing too exciting, but all bought from charity shops. If anything, it’s made me really look at what I already have and think of ways to rework pieces. Voila! New outfits!
