Welcome Fall


As a celebration of quitting my job and a belated birthday treat, one of my lovely friends was taking me for a lovely lunch at Browns Lane. I couldn't wait!

I never know what to wear for a 'lunch' especially as the fantastic UK weather (hint of sarcasm there) has decided to remain quite warm as all the shops are full of AW14 items... typical... so this poses a slight wardrobe dilemma as per usual.
AW14 Daytime




I am all about ankle boots at the moment particularly chunky heeled ones. They provide height without making an outfit look overdressed and as an added bonus boots in autumn keep your feet warm and dry. There are hundreds of styles out there for AW14 so I suggest going for some flat ones and little chunky ones like mine.
My look for my lunch treat was a bit of a fence sitter in terms of seasons.  I love, love, love longline t-shirts at the moment and I seem to have these ones from New Look in about 4 different colours. They are perfect with jeans or leggings and trainers or boots... I always add some statement necklace with mine, they are certainly a firm favourite in my wardrobe right now. 
 I never seem to wear these jeans much but I decided after organising my wardrobe I would take them out for the day! Teamed with my winter floral Quiz bomber jacket*, this outfit is a happy inbetween for a relaxed catch up with friends.
You may have noticed my super long hair... well no it isn't all mine... it's clip in hair extensions from Hairtrade*.  Initially I was a bit unsure as I know some hair extensions can look a bit tacky and normally this is down to the fact people don't wear what is right for them.  I'd usually use hair extensions to make my hair look thicker but these made it look longer... I think quite naturally too!

I've simply side plaited my hair with the extensions in (really easy to put in without clips showing)... I love how thick my hair feels and only if you know I don't have super dooper long hair, I doubt you would know it wasn't mine.

What I'm wearing
Boots - New Look (Kids boots) £19.99
Bag - Fiorelli Kenzie Bag - £29.99
Necklace - Accessorize Seedbead Necklace - [Similar] £8.00
Bangle -  Next Black Gem Bracelet - Birthday Gift
The lunch was a perfect little treat over the weekend but how are we already on Sunday night?  Monday seems to creep up so quickly!  What a crazy few weeks it's been.  My life has had some huge changes and I'm just about there after mentally catching up with it all.  I decided after I hit my 30th to quit my job and do something I was interested in... no doubt I'll keep you posted on what I do...!

  10. Love the outfit, it's my first time here so I didn't know this wasn't your natural hair until I read your post...the extensions look great! Congrats on quitting your job... I quit mine in April to stay at home and work on art... it's challenging (I do miss the money, not going to lie) but I love it... I am happy which I never was before... Anyways, thanks for stopping by and sharing your link. I am loving your blog! :)
