I’m sorry I couldn’t finish Blogtober, but there has been lots going on here that I really can’t go into. I am glad that I managed 23 days so I might try Blogmas in December.
In October, I turned 34. I had a lovely day with my family and my mum very kindly looked after Annabelle and Heath so that Andy and I could go out for dinner. He surprised me by booking a table at a restaurant but I had no idea where we were going until we arrived outside Aqua Italia in Bath. We had a delicious 3 course meal and the staff made an extra special effort knowing that it was my birthday.
Andy also surprised me with lots of amazing birthday presents. Firstly, I got this grey checked shirt from Oasis.
I was also given Lush Snow Fairy shower gel, one of their Bath bombs and this gorgeous Yankee Candle with a Berry Trifle scent.
Thanks for sticking by me while I’ve been away and I hope to be back again soon with a post about Childs Farm products. Until then, you can see what I think about their shampoo and conditioner in one of my YouTube videos from last month. Bx
I have been a bit bored of my wardrobe lately and looking to update my Autumn style. Money is a bit tight at the moment so I have put together an OOTD (Outfit of the Day) with no one item costing more than £42. I hope to add these bits and bobs over the next few months.
Oasis coatigan, Topshop black ripped Jamie jeans, HM jodhpur boots, New Look khaki shirt, Oasis Shopper
I just love this coatigan from Oasis. It is a coat and cardigan fusion. Perfect for those mild Autumnal days. This caramel colour seems to be every where at the moment too.
I live in Oasis Cherry jeans but have recently discovered these Jamie jeans from Topshop in Indigo. They are high waisted ankle grazers and I wear them as often as hygienically possible. It would be cool to be able to get the black pair soon (pictured above) to alternate between washes.
I’m in desperate need of new ankle boots and think these jodhpurs from HM are perfect. If you are like me, you’ll need to wear flat shoes, as who can run after kids when you’re in heels? These help add just a teeny bit of height to my petite frame.
Khaki is a colour that I think suits my skin tone but I don’t often buy. (I think I’m drawn to greys and creams when I’m in a shop.) I thought this shirt would be lovely for this season because it looks like an Autumnal colour and as it is lightweight, it is ideal for layering.
Finally, what outfit would be complete without a shopper? Large enough to pop in a nappy, wipes and some Organix carrot sticks, as well as all your usual mummy essentials. It is a great size for the school run and looks a lot more expensive than it is.
What is your favourite item in my Autumn OOTD? Let me know. Bx
