autumn

I want you in my wardrobe...

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Firstly I want to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments on the first Take Ten challenge!
Its so nice to have support from other bloggers and be involved in such a fun concept, I loved seeing everyones interpretation of how to wear the waistcoat and its given me so many ideas of how to wear it again.
So after spending a summer in florals, pastels and mui mui-esque prints I can not wait for the new autumn trends, I'm really feeling the grungey military trends and I'm dying to run out and buy anything khaki, mustard or shade of grey. So I thought id share some of my fav pieces from my lovely sponsor Matalan..

How badly do I want this maxi dress.. its got such prettiness about it but it works that harder edge at the same time..plus its a fab print which you know won me over :)

Printed jersey skirt, grunge print maxi dress, Stone wash denim Gilet,

Floral Lace vest



For autumn I will def need a few new pairs of boots, and these flat biker boots would be perfect for the day..especially when I'm chasing after my pugs and don't wanna be running around in heels!

Pinafore dress, Biker boot, pleated blouse, Military jacket

I have linked all the items I have featured individually so if there is anything you like the link will take you right to it! handy eh? :)

  8. I think I had almost that exact jacket and boot in the '80's. Darn it, wish I would have saved them, okay the shoes, doubt the jacket would still fit! Love that look.

  16. That maxi dress is gorgeous, I love that it has an edge to it and isn't too frou-frou (is that a word?? hmm...) that sequin vest is also awesome and perfect for fall!

    Also, how did I not know that you live in Ireland?! For some reason I'm completely dying to travel to there. I have a travel credit that needs to be used before Nov. and it's between Ireland or France... and I can't decide!!
