Newlook Try on Haul

Soo I may have done a little Newlook order, I thought I would stock up on some cosy Autumn/Winter pieces. I didn't end up keeping everything but it was nice to have a trying on session. 

How ridiculously large are these bag? I think the poor lady that delivered them nearly injured herself. 

I chose this jacket because I thought it was really cool, I liked the colours and I liked that it was different. However when I tried it on it felt really heavy and I felt quite restricted in it. Looking back I am unsure if it is my style.

My camera clearly hates this checked blazer, I liked it until I tried it on. I just don't think it is very me, I don't know if it is what I styled it with but it just wasn't working.

This chenille jumper was by a brand called Cameo Rose on the Newlook website, for some reason I don't have a photo of me trying it on. I am obsessed with this, it has a cable knit effect on it. It is so soft and because it is cropped it goes really well with dresses and skirts as it is just the right length. I'm not going to lie this has hardly been off my back.

This dress is so pretty, I love it. Youcan dress it up with a pair of heeled boots or dress it down with a cosy jacket and chelsea boots. I like the fluted sleeves, I can see myself wearing this quite a lot.

I am not too sure why this top looks two different colours, I  really like the sleeves on this and am obsessed with this colour right now. It is just an easy top you can throw on and instantly look dressy.

I love this colour, such a pretty girly dress. I would wear this with tights and boots, the sleeves are so cute. 

 I really love this jacket and am kinda sad I didn't keep it but I have a tan one just like it. It is very easy to wear and looks nice with dresses as well as a pair of jeans. the baby pink colour would go with a lot of things.

Again my camera was being weird, this is like the red one I tried on. I just didn't like the feel of this, I think it would itch my sensitive skin also it seems like the type to shrink after one wash.I like the style of it though which is a shame.

 This cardigan is so cute, unfortunately my dad put me off it by calling me bungle bear. I like the style of it and would like to find a similar one in a different colour.

My Autumn Looks

The leaves on the trees are changing colour, the temperature has dropped and pumpkin spiced lattes are back in Starbucks. Yep Autumn is well under way, it's time for that awkward transition where it's far too chilly to get your legs out anymore but not quite cold enough for a matching hat scarf and glove set. I have a few ideas to help you out and to help you keep warm but look stylish at the same time. I will try and say where everything was from but some things I got a while ago and just can not remember, I feel like I am going through a Newlook phase as they have far too many nice things right now. I am no model and I don't have a professional set just my back garden and surrounding area where I live but I did style all of the outfits which was so much fun. 

Burgendy Floppy Hat from Newlook (but a few years ago), Blue Corduroy Pinafore Dress also Newlook (last year), Pink Frilled Sleeve knitted top Newlook, Black Tights M&S and Boots from Primark.

Pink Suede Jacket from Zara, Dress from Newlook, Tights again from M&S and Velvet boots from River Island (I am in love with these boots I'm not going to lie!)

Red Jumper and Black Patent Shoes both Newlook, my Check Trousers have made my camera go a little crazy but these are from Primark and I love them, I;m not usually a trouser person but I really enjoy wearing these!

Navy Stripey Top and Tan Jacket both Newlook, Green Tulle Skirt Primark and I have no idea where my boots were from. They were online and I have had them for a couple of years.

Yellow floral Kimono Newlook, Vest top and black floppy hat Primark, Black Skinny Jeans Newlook and Brown Tan Gladiator Sandles also Newlook.

Top Moments Over the Summer

With it officially being Autumn I thought I would look back at my Summer and pick my most favourite moments and memories. I may just put a few random ones in because I like my outfit.

Visit to Edinburgh
I absolutely loved visiting this City, there is something about the atmosphere there that makes me feel like I could live there. We did so much there and saw so much yet there were still lots we didn't get round to which is a good excuse to go back. The people there are friendly, I would love to go back for Fringe Festival or around Christmas time.

My Cousin's 21st Birthday
It is very rare we all get together so it was nice to get the opportunity to on this occasion. We had a nice meal and just lovely family time.

Day at the Races
I went with my Auntie and some people that she works with, it was a really nice day and I even got a little sun burnt it was that hot. I love an excuse to dress up and wear a feathery thing in my hair. 

I really enjoyed making this dress, it was an easy make and I love the fabric. I liked to wear it with my vans or nude heels for a more dressed up look. 

My Brothers 30th Birthday
We went for a lovely meal to celebrate my brother being 30, I am very family orientated and enjoy spending time with them all together. 

Practise Round of the Open at Royal Birkdale
I'm not going to lie, I only really went to earn some good girlfriend point but I actually ended up having a lovely time. Marcus was in his element getting photographs with the players and getting their autographs. We had lovely weather too!

August Favourites

I have missed doing my favourites posts but I think I needed the break to find some new and exciting things. I would love to hear what you have been loving the past month.

I was lacking a bit of highlight in my make up bag so I thought I would try this Barry M Cosmic Lights Palette. At first I wasn't really sure how to use it especially the more creamy colours but the powders are so  beautiful and give off the most beautiful shine.

The Stay Matte liquid lip colour by Rimmel in the shade Pink Blink has been my go to colour. I love the formulation, it is long lasting and perfectly pigmented. I have my eye on the plum shade. 

I saw this quite a while before I bought it, I instantly loved it but had no idea what I would wear it with until I saw a girl wearing it with a pair of jeans. I'm not really a jeans person but I decided it would go really well with black jeans. I saw this in the sale for £9 and at that bargain even if I only wore it once it wouldn't really matter. I have been wearing this quite a lot I'm not going to lie! Any styling ideas are welcome.

I am into Vans right now and I thought it was about time I got a new pair. I love wearing them with jeans or dungarees or even dresses. They are so comfortable and this blue pair is the kind that will go with anything, they have little multicoloured speckles on which you can't really see from the picture making them different than other pairs I have seen that everyone has.

I have been looking for a trinket dish for so long to put next to my bed to keep my earrings and bracelets in. I always end up losing something when I take them off in the evening or when I go to have a bath so I just wanted a little place to keep everything together. When I saw this unicorn one in Primark I knew I had to have it.

There has to be a food favourite and last month it was Kelly's Ice-cream in general but mainly the Chocolate Brownie and Salted Caramel flavour. It went very well with the sunny weather, not the healthiest but so so good.
