AUTUMN OUTERWEAR & ACCESSORIES

Autumn Outerwear & Accessories


ASOS pea coat / Zara coat / Red or Dead brogues/ Michael Kors Purse / Kate spade watch / H M woolen shawl/ H M braided scarve/ H M band hat / Topshop fedora hat / Sorel Caribou Boots

Autumn officially starts tomorrow.  I can't believe that summer is over and boy did we have a good one this year.  I managed a good amount of trips to the beach and even had a swim in the sea on more than one occasion.

This year I am a big fan of tan, camel, grey and navy (as you can probably tell from the above set). I am on the hunt for a perfect camel coat.  I really like the ASOS one pictured above but i'm really hoping Zara come out with one as I feel they get coats 'just right' (i mean just look at the lovely grey one).  I've already bought the brogues and am looking forward to styling them with tights and a skirt and skinnies too.  I love the Sorel boots too, I think they are a great alternative to Uggs (I feel like Uggs have been done to death now)

Whats on your autumn wish list?

CAPE CORNWALL

OUTFIT DETAILS - Jeans/Gap-Shirt/Newlook-Vest/Primark-FlipFlops/Havaianas

Last Saturday we took a little trip to St Just and Cape Cornwall and let me tell you something, jeans were a bad choice that day!! It was grey and cloudy when we left and by the time we got there I would have given anything to had been wearing shorts.  It turned out to be such a lovely sunny day.

We had a little stroll around St Just town, had a saffron bun (after trying to figure out how many carbs were in it!) we then made our way down to Priests Cove which is a cute little stony beach with lovely views of Lands End.  The Brison's rocks in the middle of the sea are said to resemble Charles De Gaulle in a bath. Fletcher went on a mission to throw every stone from the beach into the sea......after realising that this would take him an eternity we called it a day and made our way back to the car.  We then drove home to our mansion as pictured above (a girl can dream right!).

AUGUST FAVOURITES

Here's what I've been loving throughout the month of August.  ENJOY!
Beauty/Cosmetics

MAC eyeliner in coffee - I've been really loving wearing absolutely nothing on my eyes other than a nice strong line of this in my waterline along with a few swipes of mascara and a bit of eyebrow wax. Simple and natural looking

La Roche Posay Redermic Eyes - I'm always on the hunt for a great eye cream that reduces wrinkles and dark circles etc (do they actually exist though). I can't tell whether this eye cream does either of the above but I can definitely see that the area around my eyes is a lot less dry so it's obviously moisturising my under eye area pretty good. 
Haircare

Tangleteezer - I really don't know what took me so long to buy one of these considering my hair resembles a birds nest most mornings. I love that the bristles kind of give your head a nice massage too. It brushes through my tangles a breeze.

Tigi Oatmeal & Honey - I used to use this shampoo/conditioner combo years ago but then they stopped making it for a while. I am so happy that it has made a comeback because it smells better than ever and now so does my hair. 

Fashion/Accessories

Embroidered top//F21 - This was featured in my last outfit post and I wore it a lot last month so it really deserved a mention.  It's still available (link) if you fancy one for yourself.

Basic grey tee//H&M - This has probably been my most worn item for the month of August.  I really wish I had it in more colours.  It's such a perfect fit and looks great tucked in or left out.  I really do need to buy more of these.

Movie/TV Show

Breaking Bad - We started watching the box set back in July and REALLY REALLY got into it in August. Were on season 4 now. No spoilers please!! 

Food/Drink

Belvita Breakfast - This is nothing new really, in fact this should be a yearly favourite because I pretty much eat one of these every day as a snack (usually about 10am if you were wondering).  They are soooo tasty.

Song/Album

Ed Sheeran X - I bought this and it has been on repeat ever since. Favourite songs from the album are Don't,Nina, Runaway and obviously Thinking Out Loud

Blogs

Hellofashionblog - I have a bit of a love for fashion mummy bloggers and Christine's blog doesn't disappoint - lots of great fashion inspiration and advice.
girltalkwithlaura - I recently found Laura's blog via her Instagram account.  I love her style and she always finds the nicest things in Primark!!

Random

Even shorter hair - I went for the chop again in August and opted for a much shorter style.  My ends were absolutely fried from all of the bleach and so I thought it was best to get them all snipped off.  I also redyed the brown and left the ends free so that I still had a little subtle ombre going on.  I am absolutely loving having shorter hair, the shorter I go the easier it gets to manage/style. WIN WIN!!

Billion Dollar Brows - I went and had my eyebrows shaped in a salon a few weeks ago (something I haven't done in about 2 years) Eyebrows really do make such a difference to your face shape and I will never neglect them ever again.  I had the billion dollar brow treatment and will be booking up again in September to maintain them. The lovely beautician gave me this little spoolie to brush through my brows every day.  She said it may sound silly but you can actually train your brows to grow in a certain direction if you brush them daily so that's what I'm doing and in fact I think it might be working plus I really like the effect brushing them gives.  Nicely groomed brows!

Wow this post got very hairy towards the end!

HELLO SEPTEMBER






 Top//Forever21>>Jeggings//Dorothy Perkins>>Vest//Primark>>Bag//Dorothy Perkins>>
Flip Flops//Havaianas>>Bracelet//Gift from friend

Well hey there September!  I hear your going to be bringing me sunshine, good times, annual leave and possibly an insulin pump.

I wasn't quite ready to give up on summer just yet so the news that summer isn't quite over yet is music to my ears.  I plan to have at least one BBQ this month and to make s'mores (British style with digestive biscuits) for the first time.  Have at least one more visit to the beach (with possibly a dip in the sea), pack a picnic and go on a bike ride, buy an icecream from a van and read a book.

I also have the week of 15 September off so it would be great to maybe spend a couple of days somewhere nice.  Fletcher could potentially be on his insulin pump by the end of the month which we are all rather excited about.  Dylan and I attended an insulin pump open evening last week and practiced inserting the cannula on ourselves and it was pretty simple. We've been carb counting for almost 3 weeks now and are getting the hang of it so we are really excited to get pumping!!

I hope you live up to my expectations September!
