I know that a bunch of you are probably still grieving over the loss of Summer 2012... I know I am! Still, I absolutely LOVE Winter and Autumn.
For this outfit I decided I wanted to wear something that I wouldn't usually go for, and take an outfit that I would usually wear in the Summer then tweak it to fit this season.
Sorry for the horrific quality photos... (a reason why I hate winter... every night when I get in from school it's like a race against time to try and get everything together and photograph it before it starts going dark! Yep that's me, living life in the fast lane). I'm wearing this sun dress that I got for like a fiver from Primark last summer. When I bought it, it kind of had a double-breasted look, with two rows of gold buttons down the top bit. However, in true Primark style, the buttons looked absolutely cheap and plastic-y so I just chopped them straight off. It looks SO much better now... who would have thought that just a few buttons would make such a difference? The bag I'm wearing is also from Primark - can I just say, I am INLOVE with this bag right now, I've been wearing this pretty much everyday since I got it a few weeks ago! It was only £4 and surprisingly hasn't broken yet, and it comes in Burgundy (the one I've got), Light Brown, Dark Brown (I think), Black and Bright Green.
The pieces that really made this an autumn outfit for me was definitely the mohair knee-socks that I got from River Island and the Dark Purple cardigan that I got from Topshop. If it's particularly chilly where you are, you could put some skin tights (or layer up a few pairs as they're not as thick as black tights... I can see me doing this trick loads this winter!) under the knee socks. I also wore it with some big quilted Winter boots that I got from the dodgy markets on the -1 floor under my shopping centre for £30! I got these last year when I went there to get some thread and ribbon, and it's the first (and so far, last... it's pretty hard to find good stuff from there) piece of clothing I've ever bought from there.
