This time of year is one of my all time favourites. The leaves are brown, the air is crisp and cold, and excitement about all the fun and festivities around Christmas starts to kick in.
I always feel that the build up to Christmas starts with the school fair at my daughters school. It is a total festive delight, mulled wine, crafts, mistletoe, even Santa and his reindeer make an appearance. The Parent association work tirelessly to ensure it always wonderful and I for one am always so grateful.
This year the weather was perfect. The park I walk through everyday was looking particularly beautiful so I thought I would leave the rolling grounds of Pamper Towers and take a few pictures in the wonder that is Ashton Park.The squirrels were mightily impressed.
|Today's look is all about 1940s inspired glamour|
This floral print midi dress £45 is by Scarlet and Jo and is just the perfect outfit for today. Scarlet and Jo excel at these 1940's inspired tea dresses and this one with its mesh detailing at the neckline and tie waist is both comfortable and pretty.
|Beseme Red lipstick for vintage lips|
As its rather chilly in the peoples republic of Wecca I'm wearing ankle boots by fashionworld (which are thoroughly caked in mud as they are my go to pair for walking Mister Truffles) and one of my many faux fur coats.
|I'm a fun fur leopard|
This one is a grey snow leopard print and I got it from a discount store called TJ Hughes last year. As soon as I spied it on the rack (the last one ) I honed on it with a stealthiness not usually associated with a woman of my size. The other lady who was about to approach it never stood a chance.
|Longer than a midi on me|
This dress is described as a midi dress but on me its mid ankle but remember I am only five foot three. The sizing on it is true and its stretchy so no need to size up, it perfect.
|My outfit matches my environment|
I don't usually like wearing anything with brown in but for this frock I make an exception and its lovely how it coordinates with the brown leaves in the park, yes I am accessorising my outfit with nature, what of it!
And as if that isn't exciting enough we are releasing a brand new "Do you want curves with that" cardigan. Its a teeny tiny limited run just to see if there is demand so check them out
