On Thursday after my A Level results came through, my parents treated me to a shopping trip to Bluewater. I really need to stock up on some clothing basics - spending the last 8 years at boarding school wearing uniform most of the time, has really affected my wardrobe. I have a lot of statement pieces, and not a lot more of anything else.
My mother found this cardigan in Topshop, and I really love it. It is soft, but best of all it is baggy and chunky in spite of being a size 8 petite - I've wanted a chunky cardigan to add to my arsenal for ages! (Even though it is petite, they sell it in regular too, as well as in burgundy!)
The chunky knit of it seems to suit me better. The colour and knit remind me a lot of the sofas we have in France. I have not decided if this is a good thing or not...
Every girl needs a good pair of well fitted skinny black jeans in her wardrobe (even if you're not even a trouser girl like me) and my current pair from French Connection are no longer cutting it anymore. These beauties are from Whistles and I'm absolutely over the moon with how well they fit me. I knew they were right the moment I put them on.
I was upset that I did not get one of the padded jackets in Hobbs N.W.3 collection about two seasons ago, but was still determined to find myself a nice padded/ quilted jacket. They had another one just like this one in the N.W.3 collection again, but with green turnovers. I don't like green. I was very happy then, to spot while I was in the store and identical jacket but with purple turnovers, my favourite colour.
I love how there is even a coloured turnover under the collar!
Last year I practically lived in my grey leather Kurt Geiger ankle boots, but unfortunately after getting them re heeled twice and re lined, I really think that they might be past it and won't last me another season. Fortunately, I found this slightly more utility pair in Carvella at Kurt Geiger for this year. I'm in love with them, and I think we're both going to be very happy together.
What have you been lusting after/ what have been your favourite purchases so far from the Autumn/ Winter collections?
