A Time Before We Entered A New Lockdown.. I A Mini Week Update When I Had Some Time Off Work A Few Weeks Ago
Hello, hello, I hope you are all doing well. I wanted to share a post of a few of my favourite outfits and a little catch up on things. I was on holiday October half term and it was great, now when I say holiday I mean annual leave also know as out of the office and it was fantastic. It rained so much but that just meant I could cosy up on the sofa and watch films all day and not have to think about work. I also managed to get the gym during the day and I love being able to go mid morning as you have the rest of the day and you don't need to rush either.
This outfit, the one I like to call a 'Double layering of animal print' is my Monday outfit of the day, it was something I had so much fun styling, I basically wanted to wear the tiger print shirt which is old but from Topshop but wanted to wear a top underneath and then though of the Saturday By Megan Ellaby Janey high neck top and boom I loved it and gave me all the vibes for the week. I wish I could wear colour in my day to day work uniform every day.
I then had a play around with the most gorgeous vintage coat that I have in my wardrobe and I had music playing in the background whilst taking some snaps of this Bowler Vintage coat or known as now Bowler and Betty a vintage shop in York. I must say I haven't been in since they changed the name.. and I am not even sure if they sell original pieces anymore.
I would normally style with a classic coat or even a leather jacket if it isn't too cold but you can really dress this kind of outfit up, you can have fun layering any shirt or high neck top and wear whatever coat/jacket you like depending on what kind of look you are wanting to achieve.
After taking these photos, it suddenly got very gloomy, dark and miserable.. then the rain started and I ended up heading to John Lewis for a little wander with my mum and then we both got absolutely drenched as we left and then to Next however we didn't stay that long as it was getting busy.
Then spent the rest of the afternoon watching the Queen's Gambit on Netflix which I am still watching as I am writing this but absolutely loving it. Have you seen it? I would recommend if you are wanting to watch something new and especially as Lockdown 2.0 hits tomorrow. (Thursday 4th November 2020)
Next up we move to Tuesday where I went to the gym so didn't take an outfit picture but after the gym, I had some lunch and then headed home and catched up on TV, I have been watching Nadiya Bakes, it is easy to watch and she makes some amazing bakes! She is one talented women.
Moving away from food to fashion and it was the coolest brands birthday, 2 years since Megan Ellaby launched her clothing line Saturday and I shared these pictures above of me styling their pieces. I am obsessed with anything colourful and retro and I am all for those vibes. I am very excited because Megan has some new pieces coming out sometime in November and I have seen a few pictures and they seem very 70s and I am loving that era right now.
Wednesday arrived the middle of the week and myself and my sister Fiona went shopping into town to buy a Wedding Anniversary card as it was they have been married for 30 years, It was on Tuesday 3rd November 2020 and before we got the card we went to Pizza Express for lunch and it was lovely, we got there early, we were sat right by the window and could see the river and it was just great.
The pizza's were so good and we also had dough balls too which are always so yummy but I apologise I forgot to take a photo however I did take one of our coffee's! My outfit was very autumnal, I wore a black turtle neck and a lovely shirt all from Zara but didn't button it up so you could see the necklace and I just loved it! Thursday was a gym day and I went late morning and then went just after lunch so I didn't really take an outfit post and when I got home I watched some more of The Queen's Gambit.
Friday came around and I wanted to wear a cool Ziggy vibe outfit to the finish the week off so I wore a old Saturday By Megan Ellaby top with all the cool retro star prints and my David Bowie tshirt I bought from Topshop back in 2017. I went to Robinsons in York which is such a cool place for brunch and they do amazing food.

As much as I love Autumn and Winter I'm not ready to dig my long winter coats just yet but I had too as the weather has changed massively which means the knitwear is back in my life and that is not something I'm complaining about. I love jumpers, anything cosy makes me happy. In York, we have said goodbye to the autumnal sunshine and we have been blessed by lots of rain which it is not much fun at all and that is probably one of the worst things I hate never mind the dark nights. I haven't had chance to buy any new knitwear recently as I haven't been going into shops as much as I would have been but this year is a totally different situation and shopping online for jumpers is not something I like doing. I love walking into shops and having a browse and then normally like to try on things but as we all know that is something we cannot do at the moment and who knows when we will be able to do that again!? So instead I've been bringing out the old knits which is not a bad thing because I absolutely love these kind of jumpers especially the ones from & Other Stories which is this gorgeous knit I'm wearing in this blog post. It is such a fabulous colour and I love bringing it out every year. I've had this jumper two years but seems like yesterday when I bought it, it was an expensive piece but something I can see wearing for a long time and they last so long.
I love oversized jumpers like this one and I have a few more which I absolutely love. I do have one from Topshop which I recently posted a photo of me wearing it the other day, it is another classic jumper and I still love it.
What kind of jumpers do you love wearing this time of the year? I love oversized because you can style them however you want, tuck them into your jeans or even trousers and even layer them.
