#OOTD: Autumnal

//  Black Jumper Dress: H&M // Boots: New Look // Tan Satchel c/o SatchelsandShoes // Faux Fur Collar: Dorothy Perkins // 

It's about time I brought this delightful faux fur collar back out of the closet! When I saw the sun shining today I couldn't resist getting straight outside to shoot some outfit posts. (Sad I know). The lighting has been really frustrating recently and I haven't been able to produce many shots I've been happy to upload to the blog. Once again I'm sorry for the excessive pictures I just couldn't resist as my garden looked even more fresh and pristine in the sparkling autumn sun! 
This is a pretty plain and casual outfit, however, I was having a good clear out of the old wardrobe the other day and right at the back of my wardrobe I found this Jumper Dress, it's actually rather old now but I can't explain how happy I was to have found it, I've been searching for ages amongst the depths of my clothing stash! And its perfect for the current season as its so snug and comfy and is really great to just wack on when I'm having one of those body hang up days.. believe me it is a dress, I have just looked back and realised it looks like I'm just wearing a jumper naked with tights and trying to pull it off as a dress but it does come down longer. I love the styling too as its pretty loose so can be worn off the shoulder. Paired with the faux fur collar it works fab, and I love having something soft round my neck I can nuzzle into when its a bit nippy.

This beautiful tan Satchel was gifted to me from the lovely people at SatchelsandShoes, I've never actually owned a Satchel before so I'm very pleased I've now got one to add to my bag collection. I love the colour, its a great piece for A/W as I know brown is going to feature heavily in my wardrobe. Its nice and lightweight too with a decent shoulder strap, I've chosen to just wear and hang off my shoulder but it can also be worn as a 'cross-over' bag over your body. I know there's a lot of satchels about on the market at the moment however I was really impressed with how much of a bargain this one was! Its currently in the sale here @ only £15.95 with variance's in colour too. They also stock branded satchels like Anna Smith and DCUK! 

Anyway I'm off to try my hand at baking some Smartie Cookies! 
Wish me luck :)
