The Autumn Tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Beth from Beauty in Beta to do the Autumn Tag. Autumn is probably my favourite season, so I was thrilled to get a chance to answer these cute questions! Read on, read on…

Autumn Lush Essentials

P1030105

Okay, so nothing from Lush is particularly essential, but these are the products that I’m reaching for more and more as the year, sunlight, and warmth slip away to autumn. Don’t get me wrong, I love autumn, and I love switching up my skincare and toiletries to accommodate things – so here are my favourite Lush autumn products.

(Quick disclaimer – I haven’t bought anything from the Halloween or Christmas collections, so that’s not what I mean by autumn products. Don’t fear, there’ll be a massive Limited Edition haul sometime next week, I’m sure!) Continue reading

Outfit of the Day: 22nd September

It is officially autumn, hooray. I adore autumn. I like puddles and autumn colours and jumpers and the heating coming on and the start of the good TV programmes and hot chocolate and everything.

I always used to hate dressing for autumn, though. I had no idea how to layer, and just threw a big bulky hoody over the same boring pair of black jeans or grey cord miniskirt and black tights. No fun at all.

But I understand autumn now – and I have a whole new wardrobe to show it 🙂

Here’s what I wore yesterday, on a crisp but sunny autumn day out in town with my boyfriend:

Cropped for red eye. This was the nicest photo of my outfit, but my face was terrifying!

Okay, so that is a cord miniskirt and black tights, but it’s a blue cord miniskirt! Both the jumper and skirt are from H&M, which have pretty much provided my whole autumn wardrobe. I have this skirt in two colours (blue and orange) and want to buy the burgundy one, which they didn’t have in my size (boo), and this jumper in blue and burgundy, and a similar cable knit jumper in grey and turquoise.

I’m wearing my Accessorize ring, to feature in a jewellery post next week, hopefully, and my TARDIS necklace, which you can’t see ’cause I forgot to pull it out of the jumper. That looks like this:

Excuse the cleavage!

My lovely TARDIS was a Christmas present from Boyfriend, and I wear it almost every day  🙂

I also wore my incredible sand-coloured suede boots, which I forgot to get a picture of, but might edit in tomorrow. My feet ache like crazy today!

Are you excited to start layering up for autumn? I can’t wait for it to be scarf weather, I’m looking forward to breaking those out of the wardrobe!
