Outfit | Checks & Stripes

Coat - Primark | Top - Charity Shop | Jeans - ASOS | Scarf - Charity Shop | Shoes - ASOS | Bag - ASOS

This outfit was from a while ago but thought I would share it anyway!
On this particular day I headed out for some tea with the boy and a wander round the shops. Instead of our usual haunt we headed to a place called Ed's Easy Diner which is an american themed diner restaurant which was pretty cool.

If you have been following my blog for a while you will notice I have been doing a lot of my shopping in charity shops. I'm obsessed with picking up loads of winter basics and I've found so many great things. I adore this stripe roll neck I picked up in my local Shelter for only £1.99! My scarf was only 99p which I put aside while I was volunteering. I used to be all about big chunky scarfs but lately I've been loving just really nice 'layering' scarfs. They're great for adding colour or pattern to your outfit but also to keep your neck warm!

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Winter Style Challenge with Bonobos!

Coat - Primark | Shirt - ASOS | Jumper - Charity Shop | Trousers - ASOS | Heels - ASOS (old)

I have recently taken part in the Bonobos Winter Style Challenge for their autumn/winter mens suit collection. Bonobos is a menswear brand based in New York that sells a wide range of mens shirts, trousers and tailored suits and blazers.

As part of my style challenge I chose one piece from their autumn/winter line of suits and put together an outfit to compliment the piece. I chose The Nottingham Blazer which can be found here.
I love the versatility of the blazer which gave me a lot to work with in terms of colours and textures.

I kept my look quite smart with my amazing new Primark camel coat and my skinny ASOS trousers. The chunky white knit jumper which I bought from a charity shop a while back is a perfect basic for layering in these colder months and a great piece for your capsule wardrobe.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Coat - Charity Shop | Top - Charity Shop | Scarf - Charity Shop | Trousers - Zara (old) | Shoes - ASOS | Sunglasses - ASOS 

Just a short and sweet post today, a very thrifty one too!

Before heading to my volunteer job I have a snoop round the charity shops. Out of sheer luck I spotted this amazing maxi coat for only £10! It comes with a detachable fur colar and the colour is just perfect. I'm quite a believer in destiny, maybe destiny brought me to this coat? who knows...

I'm obsessed with turtle necks. I love this one I picked up in a local charity shop. It's a little smaller than I would like but it's great for wearing with high waisted jeans and great for the autumn/winter months.

Hope you all had a fab weekend! Mine consisted of work, work and more work! Love don't pay the bills as they say...
