Shop Your Stash

Hello and welcome to this months Shop Your Stash blog post.

I have reached the time of year when I am now starting to dig deep in my wardrobe to find my autumnal clothes. I was mooching through this morning and remembered the tops I bought in Primark last year (or possibly the beginning of this year I can't quite remember!!) so decided to throw one on!

I think I have about four of these tops in various colours as I loved them so much I went on a binge buying session! I am pleased to say that despite being less than a tenner each they are still going strong and should be a regular feature of my wardrobe over the coming months.

I have had a bit of strange day as we headed into Birmingham and discovered the annual Chilli Festival was on so went and had a look. This then led to me doing some salsa dancing- not how I thought I would spend my saturday!
Here is a quick snap of me dancing.

Jump for My Love

Hello and happy Friday, yes that's right we have made it to the end of another week! It has been a bit grey and rainy here today, which at times has made me feel a bit meh almost beige, so I decided to do what any sane person does- throw on a super duper casual outfit and jump around in my back garden!

I seem to be having a run of luck at the moment in the winning things department, you may remember I won an outfit from Pink Clove via a Facebook giveaway well guess what I won something else from them as well!! They featured me on their FB page as part of their Pink Clove Passion and as I managed to get over 100 likes on my photo I got to choose a sweatshirt from their new range!

So here is my uber casual Friday lounging around the house look!

I #LOVE this sweatshirt and as I also love hashtags I thought this was very appropriate for me! I decided that rather than just team this with leggings or jeans I would throw it on over a jersey dress which I had been wearing all day for a different look.  The result well yes it may not grace the catwalk but I like it and it is so comfy!!
I sized up and went for a 24 as I wanted an oversized slouchy feel but it isn't as generous in sizing as I would have liked and has quite a tight band round the bottom which I have been trying to stretch!! The only bit that is oversized on me are the sleeves which are very generous and come down over my hands!
I also want to sing the praises of the Aldi leggings that I am wearing, they are so good I have worn them to death and they still refuse to bobble between my thighs and wash really well. I just hope and pray that Aldi bring them back again as another special buy as I really want another pair and at £4.99 they are fab value.

Autumn Floral OOTD

Sorry for being a bit quiet on the outfit post front but as I have increased my hours at work  I am home later and  I have been so knackered of a night that I haven't had the energy to blog- sorry!!!

I have been desperate to share a fab dress that I bought from Dorothy Perkins about two weeks ago after winning a voucher from the lovely Natalie in her blog giveaway.

I have given in and started wearing tights to work again this week so decided to wear my new dress and my funky new Primark brogues.

This dress is grey but due to the light ended up looking more purple!

I am no stranger to a good skater dress so when I spotted this one on Dorothy Perkins website I decided to make it mine!! I was chuffed to find that the weekend I decided to order it they were doing a 20% off offer so that made it even better! I
For me this dress is perfect to take me into the colder weather as it has longer sleeves which is unsual for this style of dress. I also love the v-neck as opposed to the scoop neck and it doesn't cut too low so very work appropriate! The dress is also pleated around the waist which I don't mind as it balances out my top half.
The shoes I adore I found them last week in Primark and knew I had to take them home as a cheeky purchase. I love brogues and these are really chunky so great for the colder weather as I hope they will keep my feet nice and dry!

Again I apologise in advance if I am not around as much, but with husband being made redundant at the end of next week and me working more hours I have a lot to be getting on with but never fear I am not going anywhere!

I Feel Good

Hello and welcome to this months I Feel Good post!!

The photo I have chosen this time was taken on a Friday morning where I hadn't been feeling great- you know those mornings where nothing in your wardrobe inspires you and everything you put on annoys you!!
Normally when I feel like that I grab some jeans and a top, shove them on and go but this time I decided the only way to snap myself out of this mood was to wear something truly fabulous!

The response on Instagram when I posted this outfit was amazing and made me feel so much better after a very shaky start and so I went off and strutted my stuff round Birmingham!!
