It’s that time of year where if you take a coat you’re going to be too warm and if you don’t you’re going to regret it. The weather is definitely starting to get a bit chillier, I’ve already had to de-ice my car on one morning, but I’m not quite ready for my big boots and big coat. (Plus, I’m northern so it really takes a lot for me to get my big coat out) So, my outfits this week have been all about transitional dressing, bringing in some layers and autumnal colours. I’ve bought a few new pieces for this autumn, since I found some fab bargains in Matalan, and I’m still wearing some old favourites.
Andrew and I went for a walk around Gibside, an estate belonging to the National Trust that’s near us. It was a gorgeous walk in the Autumn sunshine and I was so happy to find the Orangery to take some photos in. I found this pinafore in Matalan last week and I really love it; I want to wear it everyday! I wore it with a soft, stripy long sleeve, tights and ankle boots which was perfect for the day, layered with my parker that I always wear.
I was back at work and wore one of my favourite autumn/winter outfits. My tartan skirt was from Oasis last year and I love to pair it with my blue roll neck from ASOS Basics. I layered it with my leather jacket and my Barbour scarf and felt like it was the perfect outfit for the weather.
Midweek and I just want to be comfy and cosy at work. I wore this long Matalan cardigan, in my favourite autumn colour, over a black cami and jeans, with a chunky gold belt and necklace. I wore it with my Vans, which I love to wear for work because they’re so easy to run around in.
Recycled outfit alert! My favourite thing about this pinafore is how I can layer it with different tops and this orange Matalan roll neck makes for such a colourful autumn outfit. I still wore my black tights and ankle boots for work and I was so happy and comfortable in my outfit all day, and really feeling the autumn vibes in orange.
Finally, it’s the end of the week! Andrew and I were going to a family party and I was so excited wear my new favourite dress. I also bought this from Matalan last week and I’m obsessed with it. It’s so perfectly seasonal with its colours, high neck and long sleeves. I love the length, just above the knee, which makes it really easy to wear for work and going out. I just want to swish around in it all the time. I wore it with big hoop earrings and think I probably should have worn some sort of belt, but I love how much it pulls in at the waist without one and the shape it gives.
