I went to Bristol last night to see one of my favourite shows with my Mum:
I first saw The Lion King in London and was blown away by the costumes, songs and dances and last night in Bristol only confirmed why I loved it so much…let’s face it, Disney do it best!
Right, back to today’s post which is a fashion-based one:
No matter what the catwalks are doing, there are always certain colours and fabrics that come back into fashion at certain times of the year; florals in spring, white in summer and lovely rich plums and emerald greens in Autumn.
Although it is slightly depressing, I have found myself packing away my ballet pumps and vest tops and digging out my chunky knits and tights as it has got colder over these last few weeks.
I embrace this change in the weather and fashions though and I am actually getting quite excited at the thought of being able to accessorise with lovely scarves and hats again soon!
Because I tend to live in dresses, I change my footwear from sandals and ballet pumps to boots as it gets colder so I can carry on wearing dresses and skirts with leggings or tights.
I own a couple of pairs of knee-high leather boots but I love ankle boots too and when I saw these purple velvet beauties I had to have them.
One style that keeps popping up on the fashion pages is the Chelsea/ Beatle-inspired ankle boot and they look great tucked into skinny jeans or with dresses.
They are feminine but don’t have a high heel which is a must when you spend most of the day on your feet running around after children!
I already have pairs of tan and black ankle boots so these purple ones are a great addition to my collection.
Not the most practical fabric given the rainy weather we seem to be enjoying, but when it is crisp and dry these velvet boots will be perfect and I can see myself wearing these over the festive period too.
These boots are currently on sale in Matalan for £8…a lovely autumnal bargain!
In more exciting news, I have now finished for half-term! We usually work on 6-week terms but for some reason this was an 8-week one so I feel more than ready for some time off!
This time last year, Ian and I headed to Prague for a few days and, while we won’t need our passports this time, we are getting away for a few days in the gorgeous Stratford-Upon-Avon which I am very much looking forward to.
