Thought I would add a little something to the usual "WAYW" threads smile

I woke up this morning feeling the need for bohemian chic in which to enjoy this beautifully warm autumnal sunshine.

Teal silk flared midi skirt (Zara via charity shop)
Teal long sleeve tee (White Stuff) layered beneath:
Pale grey slouchy short sleeve tee with sequin heart detail (from small local boutique - no label other than "made in Italy")
ASOS Aggie Boots with ankle socks and bare legs.

Burgundy H and M fine knit slouchy jumper
Over a teal Primarni long vest
H and M tweed wool shorts
Burgundy tights
Dark grey long wool socks
Black 14 hole DM's.

Why? No idea grin

Dv8 denim jeans, dark blue Nike sweater and Nike trainers,
Why? Because im loaded with the cold, am not going anywhere & it's comfortable.

Happy birthday meggles smile. You're definitely wearing more than you'll be wearing next weekend grin lowers the tone

black trousers (Next), grey marl long sleeve t-shirt (New Look) and purple cardi (Woolovers) with only top three buttons done up. Bare feet.

Why? I am 28 weeks pregnant and in the words of DH i am larger than i was with DS (only got to 30 weeks) and therefore this is all that was a)clean and b) fits

Jeans, scabby T shirt and a sort of Aran knitted cardi. I'm not looking my best, it has to be said. And why - because I can. Because there is no work-related requirement to look vaguely smart.

Boden grey & white jumper dress. Fitted but cozy. Worn over uniglo heat tec black long sleeve top.

Burgundy superskinnies (River Island)
Oversized sloppy bright red and black striped sweater, half-tucked into skinnies (Pull&Bear)
Black patent brogue/loafer-type shoes (Logues? Brofers?)
Black leather jacket (Topshop)

Was going for an autumnal walk with baby DD and just felt like seeing if the colour clash worked. Think it does smile

Stella M grey skinnies
Blush M Birger angora jumper
Acne pale suede pistols and
bright orange Celine

I went to the park and looked at Vogue and felt pleased that even though I liked some of the things, in particular some Mulberry shorts (I think? I left the magazine in the car) and a blush top, the colours I am wearing are not too far out. So may not have to buy them after all.

Also a gorgeous Stella M blush-y pink coat in there.

I realise that's not why I'm wearing it, but a story none the less.

Monsoon dress; black, blue, brown & white
Black cardi jacket from next

Navy M&S jeans with plaited leather belt done up tight (I've lost weight and it's actually to keep them up. With light leggings underneath grin
Dusty pink low polo neck sweater: it's old from LL.Bean.
Designer dusty denim cotton knit zip hoodie (2nd hand from a Depot Vente in Fr.) I wore a fitted navy jacket when we went out. T'was also 2nd hand designer!
2 pairs of black cotton DH sox and slip on pink leather brogue type shoes. I wore navy brogues from Aigle when we went out

Why? because it's not warm in this house which has tiled floors all over downstairs (it's 15thcentury and the stones have cooled down from the summer heat we wait before putting on the heating.)We also went to the market this morning and the Fr. dress up a bit for anything "ouside' IYSWIM.

Black & white pj bottoms from Primark.
Black vest top
Grey cashmere cardie from Marks
Grey Ugg boots as slippers.

Why? Because I am full of cold & feel very poorly. And am knackered as finished an uber pressured job yesterday. Woe is me!

About to have bath & put fresh pj's on & slob on sofa with SCD & X Factor. Bliss.
