Here we go round the Mulberry bush…..

I was feeling the mulberry vibe yesterday and wanted to try out my new blanket wrap which I’m loving for this autumn / winter.  They are so versatile and will be great for those upcoming Halloween and Bonfire night parties and will keep you nice and cosy when you are stood outside in the cold night air.  Mine is a tartan wrap p, which I will link below, but there are a whole host of colours and styles available in the high street.

I have teamed mine with black skinny jeans from H&M with a small turn up and black New Look Chelsea boots.  My mulberry coloured chiffon blouse, again New Look, and a black and mulberry Primark handbag.

 

 

 

 

Holiday Shopping Spree

I am so excited we’ve booked a last minute holiday and will be off to sunnier climes soon.  Can’t be soon enough judging by today’s weather.  As I have recently lost 2 stone I spent today sorting out my old holiday clothes and went on a mini shopping spree to replace them with a smaller size. Yay me!!!

The usual shops I gravitate towards are New Look and Dorothy Perkins but I found some nice pieces in H & M.  A couple of t-shirt beach dresses, a maxi dress with a slight dip hem and a pair of lace shorts.  I spent the afternoon trying out various accessories and this is the result.  The jewellery is from various shops, including New Look, River Island and Dorothy Perkins, which I already had. H & M have a holiday checklist on their website but I could only seem to see menswear, no womenswear!

I’ve also fallen in love with these chunky block heel sandals from StylistPick but can’t seem to find the white ones on their website anymore which I’m really disappointed about.  But the black will look great with my lace shorts and a coral top I recently bought. Mine are a size 6!

Butlins & Bellini’s

I had a girls weekend away this bank holiday at Butlins in Minehead.  I have to say I was pleasantly surprised as I had heard some really bad reviews from various sources. Although still very basic they have recently renovated the accommodation and although not 5 star you get what you pay for.  I was very disappointed that there was no free wifi, other than 15 consecutive minutes per day, you had to pay for it if you wanted longer.  I was not prepared to do this as it would not cost Butlins anymore if they were already giving me free minutes.  Plus I had already paid for my stay.

The weather was not good and it rained all weekend so boots were the order of the day, every day.  I wore my New Look Chelsea boots with a block heel which are not too high and they took me from day to night, with a bit of glamming up of my different outfits depending on the occasion.

Our first night out I wore my F&F black skinny jeans with my boots, a grey t-shirt top with black chiffon front, my silver oversized rope necklace and my River Island black biker jacket.

Saturday was another rainy day so jeans and boots were donned again.  F&F blue skinny jeggings with a Izabel floral jumper from Dorothy Perkins and my brown New Look ankle boots that were a real bargain at £3 during a recent sale.  I forgot to take. A picture so have recreated this look today for blogging purposes.

Saturday night I wore my H&M leggings with the imitation leather fronts, a M&S black vest top (another charity shop purchase), my black leather River Island jacket and my black New Look Chelsea boots.  I love going out in all black as I feel a lot more confident and have a better night.  I know it’s psychological but who cares if it works. I haven’t got any pictures of this outfit but you have already seen the boots and jacket and here are the leggings and vest top separately.
