Blue bows...

As you may have seen on Instagram, I recently went through my wardrobe and cleared out 5 bags of stuff to go to the charity shop, along with a sack full of things that I want to sell (would any of you be interested in a blog sale?) Originally, I put this jumper in the to sell pile but I fished it out on Monday as I wanted to wear it and couldn't bear the thought of giving it away. I have been wearing a lot of jumpers to work recently as our heating is a bit temperamental and although I managed to shrink this one in the wash (I don’t know how I managed it as I washed it at 30 degrees!) I quite like the more cropped length as it is way more flattering when I wear it with skirts and dresses. This is a pretty typical work outfit for me at the moment; a jumper worn with lots of thin layers and my go-to ankle boots make getting dressing in the morning much easier...

Jumper: River Island, shirt: New Look, skirt: Tesco, tights: Tesco, boots: Betty London c/o Spartoo
I have been buying a lot of jumpers recently (see here and here for proof!) and this one has been the most popular one I have worn at work so far, it seems other people are suckers for a pastel colour and pretty bows too! 


When I had my hair cut a little while ago, I decided to grill my hairdresser on styling tips. I am really low maintenance with my hair but have been wanting to learn how to blow-dry it for a while as I love that swoosh you get when you have been to the hairdressers. Rather than trying to grapple with a hairdryer, a brush and my lack of coordination she suggested a hot brush and so I decided to try one out. I bought this one from John Frieda at Boots and it is no exaggeration to say that it has changed my life. I tend to still let my hair dry naturally most of the time and then just use this to add some definition and volume to my hair in the morning but I can confirm it works equally well drying my hair from wet. Would you guys be interested in a full review of the hot brush/my hair routine? 


Ever since the first Autumn editorials started to appear, I have been on the lookout for a checked, kilt like skirt but they have all been either too expensive, too short or both so you can imagine my delight when I stumbled across this little beauty on Tesco’s website. (I have just tried to find the link and they have taken it down which is a bit odd!) As you can see from the photos it is a relatively modest length (for reference it is being worn on my waist in these photos) and I can make it even longer by wearing it on my hips if I want/need to, for just £16 Tesco have come up trumps again!  I have been wearing it non-stop ever since it arrived and will hopefully have another outfit post to share with you soon!


Which products have changed your life recently? Would you be interested in a blog sale?

There must be something in the air as I had a massive wardrobe clear out last weekend too. Think I had 3 bags, although one was mostly coats.

Love the shape of your new skirt and your hair is looking lovely too.
